Oranges and Apples 500th post giveaway!

Well, it's nearly the end of the week and I didn't manage to post every day :-( I'm pretty pleased though, I've only missed 2 days which is much better than my normal blog posting of once a week!

I'm pretty excited, I'm taking part in my first ever blog giveaway! It's being run by Franca over at Oranges and Apples, she blogs about fashion and crafting and takes lovely photos. She's nearing her 500th blog post so she's having a giveaway to celebrate. I've donated this vintage hand printed silk floral scarf so I'm excited to see who wins it!


I really enjoyed the giveaway I did when I got 50 Etsy hearts, so I'm excited to do another one when the time comes. I wasn't that happy with the purse I made for the winner, Mary Jane of Invited to Attend, I rushed it and the photos I took were rubbish. It definitely needed something extra but I ran out of time and just had to send it off as it was, which isn't the best as a prize for a giveaway! Luckily I know MJ in real life so she didn't mind and seemed pleased with it (even if it was to my face!) but for my next giveaway I'll definitely have to make more effort.

I was really pleased with the purse Amy! It is very practical for carrying make-up jewellery etc back and forth to Tom's every weekend! Functional and pretty (and I'm not just being nice!) xx

Aw, thank you, I'll definitely make you something better in the future. You know when you make something and you feel like it'll do, but it's not the best you can do? That's how I felt about the purse. But don't worry, I have plans for your birthday! xx
