Blogaversairy week giveaway

Today is my first blogaversairy - yes, a whole year has passed since that fateful day when I wrote my first post.

A year ago, I was learning to sew, had no idea about blogging (not that I'm much better at it now), knew pretty much nothing about product photography, wasn't even close to having a shop of my own and my first sale was not to be for another 6 months.

I've learnt a lot in the last 12 months. Not just about how to do things, but also about myself - what I enjoy and what I don't enjoy, as well as realising just how much I can do when I put my mind to something.

Looking back on it all, I'm feeling pretty good, so what better time than now for a giveaway!

I'm going to do a few giveaways in the next few weeks, but I'm feeling like making things interesting. For the first of the giveaways I want to hand a bit of creative control over to you guys.

Suggest the next giveaway theme:

To win this week's prize
, I want some crazy/creative giveaway themes. The most creative suggestion will win the prize, but will also be the way I run the next giveaway.

Just to give you a couple of examples of what I mean, your entry could be to suggest that the way to enter the next giveaway would be by doing something like:

* Suggesting an alternative name for my shop

* Coming up with a creative way to get my shop name noticed

Get it?

The above two above examples aren't particularly creative, but I'd like to see some really original suggestions. The crazier the better!

- Bonus points if it involves people sending in photos of some sort.
- Bonus points if it incorporates getting my shop/blog name 'out there' somehow.

So, what will you win?

Your choice of one of these new iPhone cases. They're made from lovely rich German felt, and closed by a pair of sturdy snaps.

Don't have an iPhone?

Everyone knows somebody who has one! They'd make a lovely gift for your tech-savvy friend or relative. Alternatively they'll fit an iPod touch, or they can be used as a little pouch for whatever will fit in...

So, leave your entries in the comments section below (don't forget to leave a way for me to contact you if you win). Enter as many times as you like. I'll decide which one is my favourite entry on Sunday July 11th.


Go on, don't be shy!
