Its a Round up!

It's been a while - sorry folks. I was busy organising Songbird for the market - oh and there was the market organisation as well, plus a busy week at the job and a fantastic night out seeing James Taylor and Carole King. But I'm back.

A list of things:
First. A big THANK YOU to Emma from Freedom Creative. I was the very lucky winner of her "200th Felt sale" giveaway. The prize was a $40 voucher for product from Freedom Creative and a Frankie Magazine. The $40 voucher was used immediately to purchase gifts for the Mother-in-law and also for the Husband's cousin. Perfect timing! The Frankie magazine stayed within Chez Songbird as the whole family are fans and our mits were staying firmly upon it.
Check out the LOVELY Freedom Creative makings that we redeemed with our voucher below.

Second: Another Big Thank you from Sarah of Cotton Kiwi who gave us a special mention alongside her giving of a Sunshine Award. I feel very honoured. My list of 12 inspiring blogs and bloggers below.

Dandelion and Gray
Lily's Make Believe & Auckland Street Style - two blogs, one blogger = within the rules :-)
Cat Taylor
Bam Bam Creative
Emma Walsh Design
Miss Pickering - makes me laugh every day!
Simple Pleasures
A little Vintage
Daydream Lily
Wolf and Willow

When you receive this award, you need to:

1. Send a thank you to who gave it to you.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you.
4. Pass it along to 12 other people who brighten your day!
(some of these people have already received the award before, but I figure that's okay cause I think they are great!)

Three: The Devonport Craft Market was on last Sunday. It was moved to the second Sunday of the month due to Easter falling on the first. It was a REALLY nice day. There were some new crafters to meet and some old ones (not in age!) to say Hello again too. It had a nice vibe.
I purchased - a lovely tatted 'necklace' from AW Designs and some lip balm and moisturiser from Pure Extracts. Nice. There was heaps of other things I could have purchsed (and probably will do at some stage - my will power is not that great) but I restrained myself.

Four: Some Songbird Designs gift tags were part of the Blendy Yarn Sampler box, for the second time! Yay. These went on sale on Saturday. I think there may be a couple left. If they are, you can purchase them from Felt or Etsy. This time there is a mini box as well as the standard sized sampler box.

There are so many other things on my 'must blog' list. I will work through them and flick up some posts over the next few days.

In the meantime, have a lovely week.



  1. Lovely post Sarah, wow you have been busy! I wanted to pass on the 'beautiful blog award' to you as I am a fan and it is nice to keep sharing the cyber love! You can see/get the sweet logo from my blog. Erin :)

  2. Thanks so much for the Sunshine Award Sarah!x
