500...

Can you believe I've made five hundred posts?
Yep, this is number five hundred here. I've been rambling away on this little blog since december 2007. It began as a creative outlet & to connect with other crafty folk, as well as a diary for myself & my family. Since starting this blog, I've learnt to sew, knit & crochet plus so much more. I've met some amazing women (many in real life), who have inspired me to no end. I feel my creativity & confidence has blossomed because of you all. Thank you all for your beautiful, encouraging comments. It's so wonderful to have such support.
We've had a face lift to celebrate & I'm going to have a little giveaway as well, to give back to the gorgeous crafty community. I don't know what it will be, I'm really not that organised. But I can say there'll be some handcrafted goodness, fabric & notions & lots of other goodies too. I promise it to be a fabulous loot! To enter, just leave a comment on this post & if you're a follower, you'll receive a second entry. Don't be shy, come out of the woodwork. Even if you don't have a blog, I'd love to hear from you. I'm happy to post overseas too.
I'll draw the lucky ticket on saturday the 19th. That gives you a week to drop in & say hi & me a week to sort out the loot. Good luck!

Congratulations on 500! I'm sitting on 432 posts at the moment and was thinking about doing a give away once I got to 500 as well. It certainly is a big number isn't it? Definitely worth celebrating! The new layout looks great. I'ma a follower too.

I love those red mushrooms two posts ago. I have never seen them in real life before, but they do look a little magical don't they.

Hope Huckle is being good to his mama. Cohen is napping, so I need to go prepare lunch, visitors coming over soon. :)

Congratulations on 500 posts! I only discovered your blog a few weeks ago now, but I have to say that I really do enjoy reading your adventures in life. The giveaway sounds exciting!

congratulations on your 500th post! wow that is a lot of words ;) i am almost at my 200th and i thought that was heaps. i'm sure whatever bits you whip up will be just delightful, just like your stuff always is :)

Elisa said...

Well done, old girl!

I am a non-blogging lurker from way back, but I almost came out of he woodwork when you posted to say Huckle was due on April 16 - that's my birthday!

I culled a whole bunch of blogs out of my reader a little while ago, but you stayed, mostly because I'm totally in love with your country-livin' photos!

Keep up the good work, pretty lady!

Wow 500 posts sounds epic! I am fast approaching my one year anniversary and am just over 200 posts. What a brilliant record of your craft life you now have and what enormous life milestones you have reached and passed through since you started. I love your gorgeous blog, your way of seeing your world and the way we almost have some sort of connection even though we have never met. Happy 500 posts. X

500 - pretty great, I will have to see what number I am on now out of curiousity.
I love all the gorgeous photos and always feel like I have had a little week-end away when I visit with crafty goodness too.
I am officially a follower now too, not just on the reader.
