CJ Made Five Year Blogiversary Giveaway!


I can't believe it has been five years since I started this blog. I have blogged through the not-so-terrible two's, blasted through years three and four and have found myself celebrating my five year blogiversary this August!

To celebrate I have gathered a crafty collection of items for you to enjoy. All you need to do to be in with a chance to win these goodies is to follow my blog (if you don't already do so) and write a comment about what you would like to make with some of the items.
The competition is open worldwide so make sure you leave your email address in your comment so I can contact you if you win! I will select a winner on Friday 18th August.

 What will you win?

  • Two packets of beautifully patterned Japanese origami paper
  • Seven skeins of Mouline Stranded embroidery thread
  • Three rolls of gingham ribbon from Tiger
  • 16 rolls of assorted patterned washi tape
  • Paperchase New York themed post-it / stickies
  • Packet of 12 pencil crayons from Tiger
  • Cute vintage 1979 'Understanding Dress' sewing book by Margaret Picton

  • Simplicity K1609 Jiffy shift dress pattern
  • Butterick B6332 lifestyle wardrobe pattern
  • Two mini Bella Solids patchwork packs

The illustrations in the book are so lovely!


Good luck!

  1. Happy Blogiversary! 5 years of blogging is a great reason to celebrate! Your prize package certainly has something (or a lot of things) for everyone! I've always wanted to try Mouline embroidery thread, so that would work its way into a project I'm currently stitching for my best friend. I'd also use the fabric packs for a table runner, either to give as a gift...or for my home! The ribbons would be used for a variety of projects as I like to make cards and totes and baby items. The pencils would go into my tote for when I hike and draw out the scenery. Washi tape...who doesn't love that? It would decorate so many things for me!

  2. Congratulations. 5 years blogging and what kind of you to share it with us and doing a giveaway. B6332 would be great for the office. The embroidery threat, ribbons and Bella solids will be both used for Christmas decorations. The book will be a good read. The origami paper and washi tape would make my eldest daughter happy. The colour pencils wil l be added to my sketch book so I can colour my sketches.

    1. Hi Jenne - it takes so long to hand-craft Christmas gifts, the earlier you start the better!

  4. What a lovely idea! Happy blogiversary! I would use the New York post its in my journal to pretty it up. The Jiffy dress pattern is lovely and I have a couple of weddings to go to next year so I would attempt to make it for them! And with the patchwork squares I would finally get around to having a go at patchwork again! x
