My Creative Space 5 August 2010 - the gift of giving

This week has been fun filled and full of little children with big smiles on faces and fueled with friends, food and sweets.

All my creative energy has gone to making smiles. 

We've had cake and have sung the birthday song numerous times and to various people. It's been a great time for family, friendship, sharing, and coming together.

And so to make a great week even better, and because today
my creative space is about giving, Little Cooties will be hosting a giveaway,
in a bid to pay it forward for the great things I have received
and the wonderful people I have met since joining the crafting world.
Speaking of wonderful, go over to Kootoyoo's to see what others have been up to.

How do you play I hear you ask?

Let me know which is your favourite blog and why?
  • Leave a comment to be in the running
  • For another chance to win, become a follower of the blog andlet me know with another comment.
Please leave you email address so I can contact you if you don't have a blog.
Prize will be drawn on Thursday 12 August at 5pm.

My favourite at the moment is Gerties New Blog for Better Sewing,
just because every time I visit, there is either another great outfit that she has
made, or she has spent enormous amounts of energy showing us how to
sew, cut, drape and adjust. Not only that there is always something interesting
to read and beautiful vintage items to look at.
The other thing I love about Gertie is that she is from Queens, New York, and that to me is exotic and rare, so I get to have a peek-a-boo at a New Yorker 
Gertie, thanks for sharing :)

Here is what is on offer. 
You can choose one from these items 
(whatever would suit you best)
Baby set comes in  size 6m or 2
