Celebrating my 100th…….

If it was 100 years that I was celebrating then I would get a letter from the Queen…….but it’s not!  It’s 100 posts since I started this blog in February this year, (It’s been given a boost by participating in Blogtoberfest for the last 26 days), and I’m hoping to get lots of comments instead.  Of course, that means there is a giveaway.

 Why not start the new year (well the new school year after the holidays are over) with a day at Sewjourn?  Four people will get the chance to come along to relax, create and enjoy for the day – and each will get to bring a friend!  It will be a day of crafting in the studio (bring your own projects to work on) with morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea provided, to be held on Saturday 31st January, 2009.

Just leave a comment on this post by lunchtime this Friday (31/10/08) to be in the running.  We’ll randomly draw the winners on Friday afternoon.  If you mention this giveaway on your blog then let me know and you will get a second entry in the draw.

I had a great afternoon today at a ‘Girls Afternoon In’ to raise money for Breast Cancer Research.  It was hosted by a lovely lady at her gorgeous house in St Kilda – yummy food, good prizes and time to sit and talk to two of my favorite girlfriends made it perfect!  The girls were creative whilst I was gone……………

And to finish off the day……..this is my Sunday Stash.

    Woweeee! Congrats on the 100th post. I can pretend to be the queen and send you a letter if you like. Apparently I’m the queen of garage sales, according to Ric Rac. I’d love to be a winner of your giveaway. I’ve been reading your blog for ages and drooling over others’ accounts of the good times they have had on weekends at Sewjourn. Ah it would be nice to win… I haven’t won anything in blogland yet, yet keep having giveaways all the time! Congrats again and lovely to see your business taking off so well.

  8. Amy Gunson Says:

    What an amazingly generous giveaway. If I only I were heaps… I’d like to put my name in the hat though because I think the sweet Ms CurlyPops really needs a retreat and if I won, I’d give it to her and a friend. =)

    Well done on on 100 blogs! The Queen would enjoy a stay at Sewjourn 🙂 she could knit the corgi’s a nice red coat… I would love to win the weekend stay, (get away from the hubby) and do some quilting, meet and greet a few new faces. Lois

    Ms Curlypops told me you’re celebrating and since I’m the Queen of the Universe, I hearby CONGRATULATE you and tap you with my magic wand. ( Don’t put me in the drawing because even tho I am Queen, I have a limited air fare budget in these ‘difficult’ times.) You may consider this your Letter from The Queen. 😉

  33. Alyssa Says:

    What an inspiration! I just started my blog and I’m aiming to post once a day with something I make, but it’s good to know that there are people out there that make it past the very beginning and end up with something so beautiful that people love to read (:

  34. Nikki Says:
