A slacko day today and a GIVE-AWAY!

On the first official day of my break today..what did I do?
SLEPT IN! You better believe it!  Daylight savings is killing me, so it was great to have lie in. 
The rest of the day was spent hanging out with the kids and puppy at the lake. I had forgotten how annoying sand can be. I have no pics from our day out, as I spent the entire time holding back this beast...who was intent on swimming to Tasmania!



The beast spends most of his time here, on B's bed. 

Did you know? This month marks Crafty Mamas 7th year!
 Quite an auspicious occasion, so keep an eye out for some cool Give-aways!

Here's the first...

GIVE-AWAY #1

A SWEET Crafty Mamas $100 Gift Voucher!



How to be in with a chance? 
Just leave me a comment below, as to what you'd buy if you won!

Winner announced Mon  10th!

Good Luck!

Me Me me!!!!! I love your shop Lisa!

Liam's Mummy said...

Oh my goodness! I would have no trouble spending $100 at Crafty Mamas. I think it would probably all go on Hilco Campan Knits. I might get myself a Ottobre Workshop 302 as well. Maybe some Stella?

Amy said...

Oh wait, we're meant to say what we want? I'd buy lots of plain Stella for dresses!

cherie said...

Congratulations on 7 years!!! If I'd won I'd buy fabric, fabric and more fabric!

willow and moo said...

I'd buy more fabric of course. I'd probably hold onto the voucher until the Hilco comes in although the JNY knits always lure me in. :)

SewSuzie said...

I would defintely add some Occtobre magazines to my collection.

claire said...

$100 at crafty mamas!! Oh boy! I would buy some of the gorgeous knit fabric I'm always drooling over, like pink and purple stella for Miss Zoe, plus a few patterns, inc. the new honey blouse pattern, and some lovely ribbons! Congratulations on 7 years, that is very splendid indeed!

Kathy MacKie said...

I have an eye on a fat quarter bundle so along with some great thread that should take car of it nicely I'd say. Thanks for the giveaway.

Bec Clarke said...

Oh my goodness, you have the most awesome knits that I want to buy to make some cute clothes for my kids. There are also a couple of farbenmix patterns i have my eye on.

toadstooldots said...

*lol* your beast looks very scary ;-)

Congrats to 7 years Crafty Mamas! Hope we will see lots of more years to come and thanks for that generous giveaway!

Vic said...

Happy CM Birthday Lisa!

I would get an Otto subscription if I won, fo'sho!

Here's to 7 more *clinks glasses*.

Darby said...

I'm thinking an Ottobre Subscription, can't remember how much they are, but it would definitely go towards that...oh and if there was any left over you know I'd be spending it on pattern magazines...although I would like a couple of Colette patterns too...hhhmmm, a lot of decisions to make Lisa...thanks for the chance. Have a lovely break, you deserve it!

Karen said...

I would spend it ALL on stuff for me - Jamie Christina Miz Moselle dress pattern, Amy Butler Lotus Tunic and Liverpool dress patterns and a subscription to Women's Otto should do the trick!

Congratulations Lisa on 7 years - you are a testament to the power of the Stay-At-Home-Working-Mum!

Sair said...

Ottobre woman , I need some nice new clothes, a subscription would be perfect, something nice in the mail every so often, and some great thingsin my wardrobe! Happy birthday crafty mamas!

Eyedee said...

Oh my! $100 to spend at Crafty Mamas! I would have to buy some of the gorgeous knit fabrics. I might even choose something for me rather than for the kids!

mistyeiz said...

$100? wow!! such a generous giveway... :) i'd definitely stock up some of those gorgeous EURO knits - been wanting those for ages....n of course, stella to match!! happy 7th birthday CM!! wishing u many more birthdays to come. xoxoxo

Carolyn said...

what would I buy? JNK knits! Gitta knits, stella, hilco, stenzo... you get th picture!

Di Nosaur said...

hahaha, gorgeous beast! That is what I call my kids :P

I always seem to buy for the kids and when I DO find fabric for me, I never know what to make with it because I never buy patterns for me, so that is what I'd buy if I won the $100 to spend at Crafty Mamas... and probably, some gnome fabric for ME cos kids get all the cool stuff :D

Michelle Wallis said...

I would buy Studio Tantrum and Farbenmix patterns and fabric and trims - love all your stuff :)

Nadine said...

I'd love an Ottobre Subscription, and with the change, some Crafty Mamas iron on's :)

Liz said...

Congrats on 7 years! That is awesome :)

Hmm, what I wouldn't spend it on might be an easier question.....nothing! lol I love everything in the CM shop, but it would probably go on Stella and maybe some of the Gitta knits :)

Rainbow Made said...

Everything!! Loving the new knits you have in, more farb patterns, ribbons, velour iron ons, boutique patterns, stella...the list goes on and on :D
Congratulations on the 7 years Lisa, Crafty Mamas will always be my first stop for euro sewing supplies!

treegirl7 said...

I would buy some vicente knits, try out the stella and maybe a knipmode for me.

Anonymous said...

the trouble would be trying to stick to the $100!! I have been eyeing off the cute prints from JNY and the Mission maxi dress pattern. Add in some farbenmix ribbons, some stella and campan knits.....

Congrats on 7 years!

pinkchook said...

Lori said...

A little bit of each Stella, so I could have a rainbow!

Congratulations on 7 years!

Rachelle said...

I'd get some fabric, maybe the next Stitch magazine when you get it and some trims.

The Handmaden said...

I think it would be more of a question of "what wouldn't I buy?!"
But some Hilco would make a great start.
Thanks Lisa, and congrats on 7 years, wow!

Anonymous said...

Congratulations !!!
My choice to spend $100 would be a European pattern magazine and lots of fabulous Knit fabric. The new Mad Sky looks great !!!

margo said...

wow - 7yrs is a great milestone.... what would I do with $100 at CM - buy a pattern and fabric to make something for me! No idea what - would need a serious amount of browsing time to decide....

Rhoda said...

Congrats!! October is a birthday mum in our house too :)

$100 would love love to get every colour that Stella comes in. How awesome would that be!!

Ali said...

Congrats on the Seven Years Lisa.

A very generous giveaway indeedie.

If I were to win the GV I would probably buy more knits but all this talk about Hilco, I might be drawn in for some of that

Ali

sallyb said...

7 years Lisa? Well done!! If I was lucky enough to snaffle that gift voucher I'd be using it to fill my stash with JNY and Hilco loveliness - there's so much good stuff in the shop right now!

SewDownunder said...

I only discovered your site/shop this week, and are very interested in the unusual (for me) pattern you stock, so yeah mate, $1oo will be no problem to spend!

Michelle said...

Congrats on 7 years!

What a generous giveaway! I'm interested in your eco fabrics.

NZmum said...

Knits, wovens, notions.......I wouldn't know where to stop!

flamehair said...

Hurrah for Crafty Mamas! Thank you for bringing us such beautiful fabrics for so long. :)

Kate P said...

Hmmmm - what would I buy? What wouldn't I buy is more the point! I would definately start with the gorgeous fabric that has little apples all over it - and then I think I would just gorge on patterns!

Bek G said...

If I won a voucher I would firstly pick myself off the floor then, buy lots of lovely Hilco knits to make something special for myself. All material I buy is to make things for my boys and niece.

mick.buckley said...

7 years! How come it took me so long to find you? I can always spend money at CM but I would especially like to be able to splurge on some of the new knits plus maybe hang on to some for the new Hilco range. Goodness I'd be able to spend it three times over!

narrawallee said...

Congratulations on 7yrs Lisa,love your shop,I would buy more patterns and lots and lots of material.

Thanks for the give-away.

Congratulations !!!!

becci said...

Happy Birthday Crafty Mamas and congratulations Lisa on 7yrs of excellent service. Stella, stella and more stella. Maybe some pattern mags as well!

sdare29 said...

ottobre, stella, some random pattern for ME that i have been eyeing off for a while... more STP.... god, $100 would fly easy with me (and then i would probably buy a little more cause i had 'free' money...).
Thanks for being here in the limited time that i have become crafty!
xoxx s

Tanya said...

really- you want a wish list? Ha- it's too long to mention BUT I would buy a pattern with fabric to go with it to eliminate that aspect of choice and fabric matching that slows me down when I want to get going on the sewing!

Paula said...

Ooh wow, I'd be buying cute cotton/lycra knit prints, some velour iron-ons, a couple of patterns in German, and saving some for Hilco fine cord.

Or is that over $100?

What a fabulous giveaway, and congratulations on 7 years! If I won, I would buy some more Ottobre magazines to add to my growing collection, and I'd spend the rest on those gorgeous knit fabrics you have from Europe....currently I'm lusting after some monster trucks for mr. 3.5 year old. If there was anything left over after all that, then I'd stock up on Stella.

Kate said...
