Two Giveaways and a Break

I met sisters Sue and Doreen through the world of blogging. I have had the pleasure of meeting Doreen personally at a number of Faires organized by the Malta Crafts Council. Both Sue and Doreen are very creative and their blogs are all about the crafts that they lovingly make from scratch or from items which have been recycled to create new things.


Doreen is hosting a giveaway to celebrate her 100th post and her birthday (which was in May). You can go here for the rules. Doreen is giving away a very cute decoupaged tea-light holder from her collection.


Sue is also hosting a giveaway this month. The rules to enter her giveaway can be found here. Sue is giving away a hand-made travel sewing kit to celebrate her second blog anniversary.

Both giveaways are open internationally. So hop on over to their blogs, read the rules, leave a comment on their blog and participate in their giveaways. You will not be disappointed.

I also wanted to let you all know that due to some commitments which I have coming up, I will be taking a break from blogging for 3-4 weeks. I hope to have enough time to pre-schedule some posts and will try to pop over to your blogs when I can. I hope you will all come back to visit when I am back. I never thought that taking a blogging break would be so hard but I assure you that I will have plenty to write about when I get back. So bear with me for a while … I hope the break will fire up my creativity in a big way. I wish you all an excellent start to summer (or winter if you’re in the other hemisphere).


  1. See you when you return Loree!
