I haven't had much chance to have a good look yet. But it's very promising. There's very cute dresses that I was surprised about and I'm planning to make.
Have you got yours yet?
Damien pressed the button and out popped number 6. Mystica, sorry I don't know your real name. So please email me your address and I'll send your prize along!
I decided not to force you to work hard for the money. So, just comment and you're in the draw! Blog, or Tweet about it and let me know and you'll get another entry.
How can you resists his adorable face?!
I'll draw the winner on the night of the 31st as a send of for Blogtober!
Here's a sneak peak of the giveaway I'll be starting tomorrow for the last week of Blogtoberfest. I haven't decided rules yet, but you may be in for some work for you giveaway. Maybe!
The lovely brooch arrived in the mail this morning. It's even better up close and personal, so don't forget to enter the giveaway while you still can. I'll be choosing the winner at 5 ish tomorrow night.
Look! I rippled! It was much easier than I thought it would be too. So I really recommend giving it a try.
I found a really great tutorial here that I used that broke the steps down so they were really easy. So you should go have a look and try it out! It's very relaxing in its repetition!
I've just ordered this from the edward and lilly made it store as the prize for this giveaway. I already own a brooch of my own and it's very cute so I thought I'd share one with one of you.
And now, the challenge. I know that I am really different in real life than most people would think I am from reading this blog. For one thing, I swear like a sailor. I'm not nearly as politely spoken day to day. And I say cool a lot. But the main thing that people are amazed to learn about me is that I love music. Specifically the louder, angrier and faster the better.
I love punk and metal and hardcore and post hardcore and any other kind of core you can think of. Going to a concerts and dancing and shoving and jumping is one of my favourite things to do in the world, even more than making!
So there you go. What's your bloggy secret? Your secret personality quirk, your thing that someone would never guess you loved? Answer in the comments and each answer is one entry. Extra entries for mentioning the giveaway on your blog.
**Winner will be picked at random next Friday the 22nd and I'll also announce another giveaway that day too for the last week of the wonderful blogtoberfest!**
(make sure you let me know if you mention this on your blog)
A photo session sitting on my bed. It took about 20 minutes to get a photo that didn't look ridiculous. I wasn't entirely sucessfull and may have gotten cranky.
Go search for other self portraits at Cathie's. It's fun, yeah!
(Hand on the head is from a fringe that wouldn't sit flat)
Today Damien very kindly agreed to go to finders keepers with me, which was nice since he knew in advance it was a craft market....
He was pretty bored until he saw the shiny cuff link store. That cheered him up a bit... He couldn't buy any though since he didn't bring any cash thinking it would all be crochet blankets and crazy old ladies...
I got myself the lovely frankie calendar and some Victoria Mason earrings. They're little apples!
For the rest of our day we went to Costco which was in a word, awesome! I think I died and went to heaven a little. I didn't know washing powder came in 9kg packs?!
(2 days in a row of nearly missing blogtoberfest... I'm slipping....)
This is one of my cats. He's named for Jack Donaghy from 30 Rock (if you've ever seen it) and he's modeling a legwarmer I made that didn't turn out how I wanted it to.
What's something that you've made that didn't turn our right? And what did you do with it after?
Yet another list item that works in nicely with the pre move clean out. It looks so messy because I also had clothes overflowing in there from my closet and drawers.
This makes it look like I have a sadly small amount of linen. But we do only have one bed. The new house is going to have the first spare bedroom we've ever had! Somewhere for Jess to stay while she's here.
My first step in this list item is that I've enrolled in crochet class at Spotlight. I've just had my first of 4 classes, and I can already see improvement.
I'd been taught to make granny squares at Brown Owls about 2 years ago, but never progressed beyond that really. I could never make a sampler that had even sides for example. It's hard to make non wonky sides when crocheting! For me anyway....
The picture is a granny square that I made in the last 15 minutes of the class (poorly) that my teacher did a cool border on. She had a funny name for it, but I can't remember...
Are you blogtoberfesting? Go check it out over at Cathie's.
Just a quick note to let you know that I've decided to use Blogtoberfest as a platform to kick start my life list of doing these 101 things in 1001 day. Not sure how many days I've gone through yet and I've already done NOTHING
Anything from my 101 list is going to be put into a Mighty Life List. So even if it's not done in the 2 1/2 (ish) years. It will be done!
Have you made a list? I think you should, it's fun to make the list even if you don't think you'll really be doing it all...
One more set of papers to sign and this house will be ours. It's in Belgrave for those Victorians who know the area and we can hear the puffing billy go past from our back yard.
500m walk one way to a local pool, 500m the other to the local footy ground. In the middle of a triangle of 3 national parks.
Sounds good, huh?
Any moving tips you wish to share? Also, expect a "Cleaning out the house to move" giveaway in a few Friday's time.
