100th post and Giveaway!

100th blog post

It’s my 100th post already, time’s flown by! I started this blog in January as a bit of an appendage to the etsy shop, but then that never took off and I didn’t end up knitting that much, so I branched out into the various other areas I enjoy – fashion, thrifting, design, art, streetart, oher craft, music etc. It has ended up a bit of an eclectic mix, but I think it represents me and is more fun than a purely knitting-based blog.

And I have certainly enjoyed blogging! I thought it might become a bit of a chore after a while, but not so far! I love having somewhere to express what I like creatively, it has helped me be clearer about my style too. And I have absolutely loved discovering all the other ladies of the blogosphere and their brilliant minds, which I would never have done if it hadn’t been for the blog. Its been great!

To say thank you to my handful of readers know about (any any lurkers, if there are any?) I’ve decided to give away something I made. I thought a knitted thing wouldn’t me the best, given that its coming up to summer in most places, so I went for an anchor pendant and a big dino brooch I made in pottery class last year.
Both are made from thin glazed clay and are quite big (as you can see from my hand in the pics).

Here they are:

anchor pendant

If anyone would like either (or both) of them, please leave a comment, either giving me a bit of feedback on the blog (is there anything you would like to see, something I should blog more about, something you don’t enjoy so much?) or ask me a question – if I get enough of them I might do a Q&A type post in future. Or both! I will draw a name out of the hat in 2-3 weeks.

Thanks guys!

    Hey Gorgeous! I am new to your blog, so I’m not too sure about that feedback thing….. to be continued. I will add you to my blogroll right now too! Thanks for stopping by.

    I love the anchor one!

    For your blog (which I’ve only just started stalking in the past few weeks via Vegan and Vintage) I love your colourful clothes, and especially your full length ‘What I Wore’ type posts…

    My Q: what craft haven’t you tried yet? And what would you love to try?

    I’ve never done crochet at all, so I’d like to try that sometime!

    Congrats on 100 posts! I don’t think you should change anything about your blog.

    Awwww, that dino is super awesome, so cute. I want it, want it, waaaaant it <3

    I like your blog but you should write more about yourself and your fabulous dressing style! That's the only comment i've got.

    I completely adore that anchor pendant!
    Your blog is fantastic as it is – I love the thrifted outfit posts. I am a thrift shop junkie too, so your posts inspire me.

    Thanks for the comment.
    And hm, I DO want both of those!!
    So okay.
    I shall say, I wish you’d put more posts that are less light hearted and more…deep? I guess you could say deep. But I just basically mean a post of thoughts that show us who you are. πŸ™‚

    Otherwise, I love all of this.

    Hello fellow knitter! I just came across your blog and I wanted to say hello; I don’t need to be included in the giveaway since it seems like there are already some commenters who are really coveting your goods (and I want them to win more than me)! πŸ˜€
