My 100th Post - and a Giveaway to Celebrate

Giveaway Giveaway Giveaway!

Now, have I got your attention?

This is my 100th post on Craft-Werk. Sorry for the recent lag in posting, but it occurred to me on Sunday, when I posted last, that the next time I'd write would be my 100th post. And that surely calls for a giveaway! So the last few days I have been busy thinking up, crafting and putting together what I would like to giveaway to one lucky reader in order to celebrate the blog.

Something old, something new, something crafty, something blue handmade. This is what I am offering:


Ok, something old: From a big stash of vintage sheet music I am giving the lucky winner a 15-page music score - originally aged looking with stains and frayed edges... (Can you believe that this sheet music was meant to be thrown out in the paper recycling? No way, still many uses for that!!!)

The "something new" is this cute lidded jar. It is about 7.5 cm (3'') in diameter and 15cm (6'') high. In handy white, it will suit most interiors. I had bought it for my mantle arrangements, but am willing to part with it... (I might get myself another one, though, too cute...)

For all you crafters out there, I am including a bit of craft material in this giveaway. 
There are ten A5 size envelopes, made from beautiful paper that has pink petals in it. A precious envelope to store tickets, photos or other memories in? Or rip up and use the paper for scrapbooking... 

I am also throwing in 10 strips of pearl-shine card stock that is pre-scored. It is ideal for making placecards (check my previous efforts here).




Last but not least I have created another one of those classy and chic corsages. White will match most outfits, I figured. And I especially made a halfdome bead to go in the centre. If you look closely you will even spot the bead I have place behind the half dome. It wriggles, if you shake the corsage... 
 
It comes well-protected in its own little origami box.


Wherever you are in the world - if you are the lucky winner, I will ship it to you. And I will probably throw in a few Irish goodies to boot... To enter the giveaway please just leave me a comment, preferably all full of compliments about my taste, my ideas, my house, my crafts, my blog, my personality... Just kidding! But do leave your contact details, unless you are a follower of my blog. Entry is open until 11.30pm (GMT), Monday, 22nd of February.


Wow - writing and planning this was fun. I am so excited to see what happens next. Please get in touch - you might just strike lucky! I haven't ever won a giveaway yet, but I suspect it's almost more fun hosting one than winning it...


Best,
