100 = www + giveaway x 2

Hmmm ... it looks complicated, but this it what it all means ... this is my 100th blog post. How the time flies in blogland!




I'm celebrating this milestone in two ways ... first I'm sharing my new website with you ...



I was lucky enough to have the very talented Kellie from 74 Lime Lane set this up for me. I am so pleased with the outcome - thankyou Kellie for all of your help! You can visit Kellie's very beautiful blog here, and you can now buy her gorgeous photo's at her new store here. Her work is amazing!

OK, the second part of the celebration is all about you ... and your chance to win a giveaway (or two). I was overwhelmed with the response to my simple potholder yesterday (thanks!), so I made another one to give away ...



... the potholder is sitting on a test print of signature circles in red, which I'm also giving away for someone to make something out of. So, there will be two lucky winners! To throw your hat in the ring, just leave me a comment on this post and let me know two things: what you think of my website and which giveaway you would prefer (if you have a preference). Entries close midnight on Sunday (AEDST) and is open to everyone from everywhere! I will draw the lucky winners on Monday morning.

Thanks again for all of your support. I've said it before, but I'll say it again ...

Blogland is a lovely place to be!

POT HOLDER! It looks great, as did yesterdays, do let us know if & when you add some to your shop, won't you?!

Congratulations on 100 Nic! Your shop looks wonderful, the gallery is great - gorgeous photography, bright and colourful.

I love both the pot holder and test print, but think the pot holder would have to win!

Have a great weekend, and congrats again,
xx B.

The website is great too. I'm bookmarking her for future reference.
Have a lovely week.

Hi Nic,
Love the colour scheme on your wonderful new website. It's all very well set out and clear. Also love the gallery of photos on it!
Pot holder please, it's perfect.

plushka said...

Happy 100th!!!! I love the patterns that you do and your new website looks great and very well designed.

I will be happy with any prize but if I have to choose I would go for the test print as I can make a wonderful things with it.

Good luck with your shop!

Caroline said...

Great website, its very clear and easy to use, just the right amount of text and gorgeous pictures as well! I would like to win something "pre-made" for a change, so the potholder is my preference.

Casie said...

Nic, the website looks great! I just clicked through, and I'm not sure this is something you can change or even care about, but when you click on the blog tab, you come straight here, rather than opening a new window to your blog - does that make sense? I know I can get back to your website from here, it's just a personal preference that a link opens a new window. I hope you take this as constructive - otherwise you guys have done an awesome job!

Anyhoo, the pot older is awesome, because my sewing couldn't do your test fabric any justice.

Congratulations on the big 100. The new website is stunning, stylish, clean and just perfect. Things are really going ahead for you in leaps and bounds, well done.
That pot holder would be the perfect accompaniment to my Artichoke 1 tea towel and I’d be far to chicken to cut into your beautiful test print!

Sally said...

Congratulations!!!
Website is great - but I agree with Casie in regards to it would be better for a new window to open for your blog - afterall you don't want shoppers to leave your original site :)
I just adore the artichoke teatowel in teal... yummy yummy yummy ... and it has reminded me to get out back and water my artichokes in the garden too - so thanks for that ;)

Please put my hat in for the test print. I'd love to have a go at making something super cool with it.

becclebee said...

well done on making it to 100! your website is lovely. easy to get around, with lovely pics, lovely colouring - just lovely all round!

and if was lucky enough to win your giveaway, i would be more than happy with either - it's too hard to choose!

Nikki Cardigan said...

Congrats on 100 posts and on the website. It looks great. It is really clean and easy to find things. I like how you have used the signature circles on the tabs. Like Casie, I'd have the blog and shop open in new tabs/windows so your original website stays open. And I'd centre the heading. But I'm a symmetrical neat-freak! Thanks for the giveaway. I'd love to have your test print.

Congratulations on 100 posts and an etsy shop and a new website, anyone would think you've been busy, busy, busy ;) Love the look of the website, the choice of colours, and it was nice and easy to navigate around. Well done.
I have to say that I would just love one of your super cute pot holders, so much nicer then the manky old stained yellow one that I currently use.

Gina said...

Hey Nic. 100 posts, how did you get there already?! Prolific. First, sorry I missed this earlier, I've been offline due to continued headaches. But I just checked out your website and it's great. I like the tabs, it's easy to navigate, and I have nothing to add!
I'd love to have a play with your signature fabric if my number came up... :-)
