A little giveaway....

Will leave this post until Thursday and do the draw sometime in the afternoon.Thank you to everyone for all your comments so far.
I'm having a little giveaway, its almost my 150th post, so all you have to do is leave a comment telling me what you think to the above crochet flower, do you think the packaging is ok, its card with hesssian on top with the brooch pin through it. Do you think they would sell? that sort of thing.
edit *** some of these are now in my ebay shop***
Here is one of the giveaways, i made this the other day, its for your takeaway coffee's or like i have done put it on a glass for show.

The other is this lovely knitted bunting made with cotton yarn, its only four triangles so would look nice on a door or something like that, you could had some flowers to it, or the words love or baby in felt or something. It has little loops on each side all ready for hanging.remember to say on your comment which you would like.

Beautiful work ! I think the brooch packaging is perfect and would be very popular as little gifts.

The knitted bunting is absolutely gorgeous, lovely take on the fabric bunting. Very classy !

I love the brooches and the packaging, they are very 'Natural', just what I love! I think they will sell well!

Very cute Sarah, you always have the cutest ideas, and where you find the time, who knows! I love the flower and packaging. I think the person who buys it will have a hard time throwing the package away once they take the brooch off the card! I love your bunting, but please don't enter me in the giveaway since I have already received so much from you! (I love your idea about the felt letters on the bunting, so creative!)

So CUTE! As a fan of brooches and flower corsage brooches myself - I would LOVE one of these so hope that you do sell them SOON!
I also love the little cup warmer. I work from home, so any "unwork" things I can bring into my home office, makes it that much easier. I would also snap one of these up in a jiffy if you made them in earnest.
Lovely as always
Take Care

The packaging on that brooch is gorgeous - I love hessian, and the contrast with the flowered card is perfect.

Congratulations on nearly 150 posts.

If I were to win, I'd plump for the knitted bunting - I think it's fabulous.


Pipany said...

I think the brooces are really saleable as people don't always want to buy big items. They are little treats - just gorgeous. The hessian is a different idea too xx

Glad you stopped by my blog. Your site sure is pretty in pink. Love the dots. The crochet brooch is great. I'm glad crochet is popular again, as it is something I have always enjoyed. -- Michele

Katy said...

I LOVE the brooch, and the packaging is gorgeous!

I also think the coffee cup holder and the bunting are fab too...and I couldn't decide which I'd prefer!

Thank you for visiting my blog (via Clare) and leaving a comment. I have had a quick look at your blog, and will return again soon. Love what I have seen so far, and gives Clare and me inspiration.

They are all lovely, the hessian backing for the brooch is lovely and people could reuse it for crafting - recycling packaging - brilliant!

Oooh such lovely things you have made! I think the packaging for the brooch gives it a nice rustic country look I think they will sell very well. If I had to choose I'd go for the knitted bunting. - thanks for leaving a comment on my blog I hope you don't mind if I add a link to yours.

Vixbil said...

Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my blog, sorry it is not crafty, I so wish I was and when I look at blogs like yours I wish it even more. Your site is so beautiful and I love all the things you make, in my head I imagine myself doing and having all these gorgeous things but never manage to put it into practice. The brooch is beautiful and I adore the packaging it is just the sort of thing that would leap out of the shop into by bag! Also, I can't wait to read 'Divas don't knit', hope it was good

trashalou said...

I think the hessian is a fabulous touch and that bunting is really triffic.

Brierley & Clover said...

Just gorgeous Sarah! Love the flower, love the card and the hessian..I would probably change the tag...I don't know why but I'd love to see a hanging swing tag in there somewhere!

The knitted bunting is lovely too!

Charlie P said...

Yes, those brooches will definitely sell- I would buy one for the packaging alone :)
Happy nearly 150th post!

p.s. thanks for leaving a comment on the pigeon loft- I forgot to save your site in favourites and have been looking for it again ever since! Loving the new look!

Hi Sarsh,
thanks for the lovely comment on my blog and I'd love to do a swap with you anytime.
I love the packaging you've made, very natural, would look good as a gift tag on a special pressie.
I really like the crochet bags you've made too, wish my crochet skills were that good.

Hi Sarah. Thanks for the lovely comment about my doll. Your brooch is fab. The packaging looks great. Like a little picture in it's own right.
Can I play in your giveaway please?
Would love to own anything of yours. Crochet has always been a stumbling block for me. One day I'll learn.

I don't know much about sales/marketing but I think the brooch is darling. Really cute and unique.

Pixiedust said...

Just found you through "Summer by the Sea" blog. What beautiful handmade things you have, you are a truly talented lady. I think your brooch is fab and the backing is great. It would look great pinned onto a jacket or a summer bag me thinks. Keep up the good work, off to check out your stuff on e-bay now! xxxx

picciolo said...

hi, thanks for leaving a kind comment on my blog!
Your items are great, I love the packaging for the new brooch, the hessian looks great against the white of the flower. It really sets it off and I'm sure it would sell.
The bunting is very pretty

(I love your market bags too!)
