little grubs is 1 and I am having a giveaway!!!

little grubs turned 1 whilst we were on holiday
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!

I can't believe that a year has passed already - we sure have fitted a lot into that year. I've had a look through my posts and it has been great to have a record of our family life and things I've made and, of course, my various thrift finds! It would have been nice to have had a record of the move to NZ but only having dial up at the beach put an end to the blogging for a while.

I have come across many amazing blogs in my travels and never cease to be amazed by the creativity, love, passion for life that I see in the posts. And as for crafty inspiration ........ my poor little mind is in overdrive regularly!!!! I haven't met any bloggers in person but I've learnt alot about people from their blogs and have received much support back.

So a HUGE big thank you for anyone who visits this little page! It really is lovely to know that people pop over here and I truly appreciate all the comments. So regular commenters and newbie commenters alike maybe you'd like to leave a comment on this post and be in for a chance to win a Birthday Giveaway because no birthday's complete without presents!!!

I've got a little dress and matching reversible hat up for grabs. I made the dress from a thrifted sheet and added 2 buttons from my stash and used the same material for the hat with the other side from a pillowcase. It would fit a little girl upto about 3 and is great as a sundress or in the colder months with a top underneath. So with no further ado I give you the dress - ta da!!




And the hat!



Obviously I will finish this (having someone to send it to will prompt me to get it done at last!). And the dress in action? I have a willing model but one who doesn't really take instruction, who am I kidding she doesn't take ANY instruction - she's what you'd call a freestyle model!!!





I'll leave this open for a week and then pick a winner so leave a comment and be in to win!!!!!

A very happy birthday to YOU.

And what a lovely giveaway. I'm sure my boys would look SMASHING in these items, LOL! Having said that I'd love to win them. One day I hope to add a girl to the clutterpunk tribe. Or, *sigh*, I could give them away to one of the many little girls I know.

How cute is the model? I note the lovely fairy pants in the pic as well :-)

PS OK if I point some other readers in your direction and post a giveaway alert using your images? Maybe on Friday? I just think there are some of my readers who haven't met your blog yet and might like to enter...

Happy Blog Birthday!

I think she does a very good freestyle model! Are you going to be able to prise the dress off her to give to someone?

Happy blog anniversary!! I've only had my blog since March and it's lovely to look back and be reminded of the things that I've done in that time, kind of like a colourful diary. I love reading other people's blogs too, it gives me loads of inspiration and ideas of things to make.

The dress is just beautiful!

Happy birthday and it is lovely to find a new blog to enjoy. Thanks for the chance to win the dress. I have my own freestyle model who would look a treat in it. Kind regards, Lisa.
