111th Post Giveaway + WOYWW

Hello Followers!  Hello WOYWWers!  Hello Everyone else!!

Now, I said I was going to celebrate my 100th post but it passed without any big hoo-haa.  I decided instead I would mark 111 and that is today's post.  I think 111 is quite an achievement for me - I honestly didn't think I'd get this far, or find as many blogs to follow, or find so many posts to inspire me, or enjoy blogging so much.  And I like that this post has fallen on a Wednesday because I love WOYWW posts and all the snooping that goes with them!

So here is today's desk pic for WOYWW.  What a mess!  Nothing much being made still, other than lists... I've written lots of lists about what needs to be done!  Loveliness from Ali, a box to be decorated (can't show you what's inside yet...), swarovski crystals, photos, water pots...

And also a little pile of goodies... it is my 111 giveaway gift.  Want to see?

Beads, buttons, birds, brads, butterflies, dragonflies, wings, hearts, stars, ribbon and a few card blanks.  11 things I love and hopefully the winner will too!!

I will pick a winner from the comments left on this post on the 11th of December.  It's the normal rules that you see all over the blogosphere...

1. Rule number one is usually 'be a follower of this blog' - I suppose actually you don't have to be a follower...  It'd be nice if you wanted to follow... If you don't follow you will need to remember to check back to see if you have won
2. Mention this on your blog - in a post or in the side bar - spread the word
3. Leave a comment on this post - I think it's fair to choose randomly one name out of a hat but if your comment makes me smile you will get your name put in the hat twice  :)

I'm off to look at other peoples desks now...
Another post coming later with some ribbony news...
Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Wow, how amazing that you've done so many posts! Many congratulations on reaching that milestone. Good things to snoop about on your desk today - I hope you get lots of folk entering your giveaway. I'm not going to enter as I'm not a cardmaker/scrapbooker, someone elee can have a chance to win instead :)
    Hugs, LLJ #32 xx

  9. Your 'mess' looks so tidy to me. I like the way you are storing your washi tape.

  10. Great desk, love the washi tape storage stick. I won't go in the contest today as i have a room bursting with items and my New Years resolution is to use some of it up and cut back on what enters. If it isn't a non consumable other than glue, cardstock or ink refills, it is not coming in.

    My only exceptions will be the 4 annual scrapbook sales in my LSS parking lot as there are tables that sell hings for pennies...literally pennies.

  11. Congrats on the posts. I was amazed at how fast (and how slow) they added up. Great looking giveaway and I love all those things too. Like minds..guess thats why we are on WOYWW! Thanks for visiting my desk and leaving such a nice comment. Have a great week! Vickie #3

  12. Love your little set of 11 things, how thoughtful. Thanks for visiting me today BJ#7

  13. Congratulations on reaching this landmark. Funny how the bug really gets you without you realising!! Hugs, Buttons #43

  14. Hi, Laura, I'm intrigued by the ribbon/paper/tape with the houses on it -- that looks like fun! Hope you have some time to play soon. Put it on your list. :-) Thanks for popping over to visit. ~ Laura #93

    1. The ribbon is part of a collection from Crafty Ribbons

  15. I think your desk looks fine, it is neat to me! and how sweet to have a giveaway too! It looks like wonderful stuff!

  16. Thanks so much for your comment and your blog prize is really generous but I will leave it for someone else to win. doesn't,t time fly when you are acing fun?
    Love Jo x

  17. Hi Laura,
    Congrats on the 111th post! Like you, when I started I didn't know how far I'd go and am SO grateful to have found WOYWW. It's a blast, isn't it!

    Your desk looks great to me! You've already been to my place so you saw the "disaster" that is almost on the floor!

  18. looks like your desk is ready to be played on. the blog candy looks lovely, beautifully arranged, I just want to play with them too.

  19. 111 - well done you ! Intrigued by the little drawers at the back of your desk & what could be in them !! You favourite things look great fun - hope the winner has fun with them - very generous of you ! Have a fun crafty week ! Ali #24

  20. 'Legs eleven'. A clever use of all the 11s. Well done on all those posts. It's a lovely gift and very generous of you, but I am not adding my name to the contest as I am having a major sort out, and getting rid of a lot of 'stuff' before I have anything else new. I am sure someone else will thoroughly enjoy using it. Thanks for popping by my blog today. I do love having visitors!

  21. Hi Laura - happy 111 anniversary! I know what you mean about how addictive Blogging is. I am loving the wash tape tower!! I like stuff stored so you can see it. Thanks for visiting me. Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 37

  22. Congratulations on 111 posts and also on a bright and attractive desk! Your giveaway looks very generous and lovely.

    Thank you for your lovely comment, and thank you for being yet another one "giving me permission" to do what I want to do rather than what I ought to do lol! You know how it is - you feel a bit better and need to take full advantage of it, and I'm so enjoying being able to sit at my desk and be really creative again! It's such a lovely project too, because it's all about my wonderful Dad.

    Happy WOYWW,
    Shoshi #82

  23. Congratulations, Laura, on your 111th post! Every day it's a surprise that people visit, isn't it? I'm so amazed by that and how much fun it is! Your desk looks great and your prize is very generous. I'm "over endowed" with stuff I've still to use (shame on me), so please don't put me in the hat, leaves more room for someone else!

    Have a great week! Darnell #54
