100th post give-away!!



Who is in that window? And what's that in her hands?

Okay. No more goofy guessing. You know it's me holding a stack of sweets. And that's our little playhouse outside we built a few summers ago. I should show you more of that one of these days.

Can you believe that this post was 100 posts ago? I certainly can't. I'll tell you what else I can't believe, is that you're still here. And more of you! And that apparently I haven't completely talked your head off and made you run away.



I'm feeling generous and tried to think of all the fun little things I could make you do to win yourself some sweet stacks. But I figure, just leave me a comment, any old comment, even "Anna you stink" and I will throw your name in a hat (or likely a Ball jar). Monday I will post 4 winners whose comments I've pulled out of the hat, errrh, jar. You heard me, 4 ! Winners will receive a fat-quarter stack of either of the two color ways of Chocolate Lollipop.

Also you could tell my sweet Juliana what a gorgeous job she did on the pics! Isn't she good? She also gave me a piece-y fun new hair cut a while ago, that has me feeling especially hip since it passed the 15yr-old style icon test.

Also, a most sincere thank you from the whole family for your thankfulness of her safety and your considerate outpouring of emotion after our close call. She is doing great, and thinks you guys are really nice too. Thanks for giving me a such a welcome place to share the good and bad, the dull and colorful, and for peering into my window every now and then.

Now get to commenting!

xoxo,AM

  32. Did you say Juliana cut your hair? That is absolutely incredible. I can't even imagine cutting anyone's hair (I cut my 2.5 year old's bangs a while ago and they ended up shorter and shorter - well, you get the picture). I hope someday my daughter will be so clever to take such great pics and haircuts!

Hey - I'd love a stash because I am going to be ordering in Chocolate Lollipop as soon as it's available - but being in Australia we have to wait even longer:-( so having a stash to make up a project for the magazines here would be awesome (and would put me ahead of the game). I've also got the Bohemian range here at my shop - it's been so popular!

  136. Anna you stink. Like a bouquet of wildflowers on a breezy sunny day. Or perhaps like the scent of jasmine coming through the window after the rain.

    p.s. I'm pretty sure I want your family to adopt me.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Oh, my gosh, Anna Maria. I missed Monday's post (Blogline's fault, I think). I hope Juliana, and your whole family, is recovering from your scare. After being in an accident (a driver made an improper left turn and smashed into me) I understand the trauma a body goes through, even though her surface injuries seem slight. Young bodies heal very quickly, however. My best wishes to you all.

    I'm so happy to hear that your sweet one is ok!! This is the first I've heard about your traumatic events. (Darn bloglines and it's glitches.) What a scary, scary thing. Thank goodness they made it out alright.
    I'd love a chance to win your generous give-away. Heck, forget the give-away...I'd even offer to buy some from you!! :) Just can't WAIT to get my hands on those beautiful prints.
    All the best to you~

    Hi there,

    I've been readig your blog now for about 6 months. You are a very inspiring person and I love to read and see what you are up to next.

    At Christmas you put up these cute dress' for coloring. I printed them out, colored them and made a tiny cut in the middle of the dress so it opened up and the receiver of the gift had their name written there. It was a huge hit with all females old and young!

    I love your felt ideas for the holidays and am hoping to make some for this next Christmas. My nine year old granddaughter loves to see what I can come up with next; and with your help it is always something great!

    Congrats on the 100th post!

  177. Hi Anna! I love your blog and your fabrics. I am so happy that your daughter is okay. I witnessed a head on collision in a remote area when I was 8 months pregnant. It was scary enough watching it happen.
