Markets, Blogiversaries & a Giveaway!

Thanks so much for all of your encouraging comments for my first ever real market last Saturday.  I had such a great time!  It was such a buzz that we’ve booked in to do another!  Thanks to all the people who came to say hi!  So awesome to meet some bloggy buddies IRL* as well!
On another note, over the Easter holidays this little blog turned two!  Life has since continued on at it’s usual rapid rate and the blog quietly slid into it’s third year with me barely finding time to scratch together a post, but I really wanted a chance to thank you all so much for making this blogging caper such an invaluable part of my journey.

Fortuitously, post market, I now have a nice little handful of goodies that I’d love to give away to one lovely Frog, Goose & Bear reader as a way of saying thanks!

In this ‘Frog, Goose & Bear Giveaway Pack’ you’ll find……

One rainbow cloud vertical garland**, one mini map bunting, one clay birdie, two fabric covered cards, one origami bunting card and two fabric covered hairties.

Simply comment on this post to go into the draw.***  While you’re there you might like to share what you would like to see in a ‘Frog Goose & Bear’ etsy/madeit store if there was ever to be one.

Entries close next Friday (18 May).  
A winner will be randomly selected sometime next weekend.

    Congratulations Emma and it WAS great to meet you!!<br /><br />Actually, since you asked, I think it would be great to see more of the stuff you do for parties. I know that you use a lot of free printables but maybe party favours that you do or bigger bunting that are party-themed. Or something like that…

    Happy 2 year blogaversary!<br />And mega yay your market was fun and a success. <br />I love those rainbow garlands, I might try to make some with a flower paper punch I have, are they sewn together on the sewing machine? They would look great at Abbey&#39;s birthday party next week.

    Goodness Emma, happy two&#39;th birthday!! That is so fantastic &amp; i&#39;ve thoroughly enjoyed watching your children grow (Goose is 8, how??) &amp; your incredible craft with generous DIY tutorials. You are certainly a special member of this blogging world. I still miss your sister&#39;s blog, tell her that!! Congratulations on your sweet market too, looks LOVELY!! Love Posie

    Congratulations on the &#39;blogiversary&#39;. I like your clay gift tags and button hair ties for your future etsy/Madeit store. Oh, and the origami bunting cards, they&#39;re cute, too.

    I agree with Sonia -you could sell party packs! I love your party ideas (and have borrowed a few for my own kids) but don&#39;t take enough time to put it all together like you do. <br />I have loved reading your blog – I am still using things from your handmade gifts for girls series (made winter skirts recently…) so thanks so much for that! <br />Keep at it, if you have the time – there

    I&#39;m so pleased it went so well. Just like your backyard market only bigger? <br /><br />I&#39;m in the draw! I adore your goodies (you should hear the compliments I get when I wear my FGB necklace!). x

    Congrats on your first little market stall, a very exciting moment – so long as it went better than mine did (I sold two cards :( ) and happy blogoversary as well!

  16. says

    Happy blogoversary! I LOVE the idea of a FGB Etsy shop – that&#39;s the best news I&#39;ve had all week. I think you should sell that book you&#39;re going to write about parties and craft for kids in it… as well as that fab map bunting and the gorgeous clay tags!<br />Thanks for being such an inspiration x
