things i'm loving & i'm grateful for 'Spring giveaways'

Greetings all,
As a take a blogcation to rock my fluoro socks off at my niece's 80's themed 21st this weekend . . . i'm leaving my blog to host a giveaway.  Things I'm Loving & I'm Grateful For . . . are being able to offer lots of giveaways . . . sponsored/ Lego/ IKEA/ handmade from my own hands. Take it away blog.
While making a bunch of patchwork pencil rolls for last weekend's Handmade Market, i made a special Babushka fabric one for this Spring giveaway with tiny bunting flags.  Ahhh.  Fancy the latest copy of Mollie Makes magazine??  I'm so delirious, i picked a copy from the newsagent & my subscription issue came in the mail, so where better to share (including linen pouch project)??  Toss in some stitching & mending books + gift tags & you've got yourself a crafty giveaway. 
Just follow this blog & leave a comment, to win Mollie Makes, 2 craft books, patchwork pencil roll & gifts tags.  Entries close midnight on Halloween, 31st October 2011.  Extra entries if you share on your social media, go nuts.  Random draw, good luck!! 
 Spring cleaning my September giveaways, i have some winners to announce!!
3 lucky randomly selected followers have each won a
Lego Hero Factory scary dude.  Congratulations . . . Rachelle from Prim & Pretty blog,
Mel from Loved blog & Ally from Everyday Miracles blog.
 The latest Riley adventure in Tania McCartney's exciting series of children's book is Riley & The Grumpy Wombat in Melbourne + a coordinating pencil roll . . . the hand picked winner is . . . Greta from Topography & On Top of a Lilypad blogs in NZ.  Yay, lucky girl.  Let me know who Tania can autograph it to.
I have a few more giveaways up for grabs, from Wii games to more handmade goodness, follow & enjoy the ride.  Good luck, love Posie

That's a sweet giveaway - though I already have Mollie Makes and my son (and me for that matter) is too old for Lego I think...hmmm ;-)The pencil roll with tiny bunting is great though ;-) Enjoy your blogcation xo

Seaweed and Raine said...

Little Russian Grandmothers? Yes please!!! I'm sure I can obtain a bonafide recipe for borscht or the like from my Russian/Polish friend to feed her on...
AND Mollie Makes? Oh I think I've died and gone to heaven (good song that)... still trying to get my newsagent to stock it here.

Hope you dance your disco socks off! :)

Tanya said...

Wow, that's an awesome giveaway! Would be over the moon to win, ESP the pencil roll and Lego, would keep kids occupied for hours! Have a great time, hope you post some pics. X

P.s. Could I ask where you went to get your Mollie Makes subscription? Not having any luck at newsagent and can only find an offer on the mags home website. Wasn't sure if that was the best way to go.

Sharyn said...

I would love the Babushka pencil role. I am a real stationart freak and my wonderful son bought me a real Babushka doll when he was backpacking through Russia. Thanks Sharyn

Tania McCartney said...

Thanks for hosting my Riley and the Grumpy Wombat giveaway, gorgeous Posie! Congrats Greta!

A Red Ham said...

To win something like this would make help to improve my horror week. I have just spent the first week of school holidays on holidays myself with my children,l which I was really looking forward to doing, & they have been feral all week. I am really at my wits end. So please pick me.

Mum on the Run said...

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog readers have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?

Amy said...

Awesome giveaway Jennie! I have tried unsuccessfully to get my local newsagent to order Mollie Makes for me :-(

I can get a digital copy, but it is just not the same as thumbing through the mag itself!

Louwink said...

Posie, You are so good at decorating, your daughters bedroom just looks divine. Getting a couple of surprise gifts on her bed must have just been the icing on the cake.
Love the babushka pencil roll, you can't have too many babushka dolls.
80s party's are heaps of fun, go the fluro. Great music too.
; ) Louwink
