lucky 300th post & hot pink G I V E A W A Y

Greetings all,
Check it out, my 300th post, yahoo!!  Seeing it's International Women's Day & all, i figured i'd team it with a hot pink GIVEAWAY.  So to celebrate women all around the world . . . inside a French cute pink & white polka dot suitcase, you'll win a Cashmere pashmina, Australian wool, American twine, Swedish stripey ribbon & Japanese washi tape, Dutch hair clips, a British colouring book, 1/2 yard Russian Doll Babushka fabric & collection of multi national fabric buttons.  Value over $200 of hot pink goodness!!  
Today Shop Handmade hosted a IWD event with a delicious Champagne catered lunch & a dozen giveaways of handmade goodness over lunch.  Our guests each wrote a note telling us what they loved about being a woman in Canberra (our nation's capital) & had their lucky tag plucked from the tree to win.  Check FaceBook to see if you were a winner.
So i'm off to a Spin Class at the gym to take care of the cake calories!!
Tania McCartney taking shots of the food & the ladder filled with giveaway prizes.
Truffles, say no more!! 
Because i'm all class & glamour . . . look at how my lady like avocado dip eating skills have served me . . . it even made a 'plop' sound when it landed on my shoe & of course, i giggled, perhaps even snorted??!!  As a good hostess i ate when no one was looking, so i thought i'd blog about my shame for those who missed my party faux pas.
RightyO, back to this 300th post giveaway, just follow this blog & leave a comment, simple!!  If you're super keen to gain extra entries, feel free to spread the word on your FaceBooks, Blogs or Twitter Tweets & help yourself to extra comments here.  International entries welcome, men too, i hope you enjoy IWD too!!  Giveaway closes after Monday 28th March (after Sew It Together in Sydney).
Good luck & here's to the next 300 posts!!  Love Posie

Felicity said...

Happy IWD to you Posie.
You are truly inspirational and one of the wonderful women I treasure on my interweb journey.

Congratulations on your 300th post, that's truly impressive and there has been so much contained within each.

You make my giggle [avocado slip ups], you make me think [lots of wonderful emails], you inspire me [your partnering and parenting connections] and you make me wonder if I too could be a craftily creative as you one day.

Biggest of hugs,

Felicity xx

PS That is one truly awesome giveaway - I love the international thoughtfulness

Thea said...

congratulations on the 300 post. I love following your blog x

Seaweed and Raine said...

My first thought was "happy 300th post!" followed by "holy dooley is she serious?!?" (The shock brought out the Aussie yobbo streak in me that is usually kept under lock and key). Are you sure you want to part with all that stash of goodies?

Hehehe - you know, I was so busy reading what you wrote that to start with I didn't even notice that it was dip on your shoe... I thought it was a cute little lime green flower!!! (Yes, I should pay more attention).

It has been an enjoyable journey following your blog :)

LionessLady said...

Huge congratulations on your 300 posts! I love the dip on your shoe shot... when I saw the pic at first without looking properly, I thought it was a green flower attached, as part of the shoe! haha!
