200th POST BLOG-VERSARY & GIVEAWAY


I can't believe it! This is my 200th post!  

Me - who never managed a diary beyond Day 4!

So there has to be a giveaway! 

In fact, I'll make it 2 giveaways.


1) I will design a blog header especially for you - exactly as you want.

OR

2) One of my handmade journals or a coptic book or Japanese stab-bound album (your choice)

State which item you'd like to win if you have a preference.

All you have to do is leave a comment, and I will pick out the winners using the Random Number thingie  the night of Friday 11th December and post the winner on Saturday 12th December,  (Option 2 should arrive nicely in time for Christmas)!

74 comments:

  1. Susie,

    I'm not sure being the first commenter is good luck, but I'd love to win one of your prizes; hard to choose a fave, but I will choose a handmade journal, I like the coptic binding if that is a choice for a journal.

    xoxo

  4. Oh, my goodness! What an amazing gift! I would have to say the blog header--yours is so amazing--and I could never do that!!! What a fabulous offer! I really hope I win! Thanks for a chance--and congratulations on 200! I just barely hit 72! THanks again!

  5. Hey Susie, 200 posts, WOW!! That is certainly an accomplishment. I've kept a diary ever since I can remember but since I've been blogging and working on various projects so often, I've neglected my 'analog' diary terribly.

    I am so excited about my blog re-design; I'm sitting on pins and needles wanting to get in there and post. I've promised myself though that the 1st post once the design is complete is to announce the giveaway prize and get that started. I promise, I'm not trying to rush you. I'm just so thrilled with how easy it's been to work with you and I'm 100% satisfied that I'm going to be thrilled with our finished product. No pressure, huh?! LOL

    I'd love to win your giveaway prize and get one of option #2. I'm not sure what the coptic book or stab-bound album is but I know anything you come up with will be unique and treasured.

    Thanks for giving us a chance to win and congratulations again on the 200th post milestone!!! Have a great day, Susie :-)

  8. Hi, Susie!
    Your header says "wise and witty comments" ... hmm not sure I have anything wise OR witty. I get too confused way too easily. I'm sitting here trying to say what a great site and glad I found you through one of my pals .... but my brain crashed and I cannot remember which one said to visit and then all I can think of is your blog title "1st floor Flat" which in the US would put you on the second floor ... and then it just spirals from there ... SEE?!?
    Anyhoo .... I will come back to visit and read a lot more of your prior posts to see everything that's going on .... but 200 posts is a LOT .... and you have HOW MANY blogs??
    Whew! i HAVE my work cut out for me!
    Oh, and by the way ... if you are still willing to enter me into your giveaway, I would be interested in choice number two ...
    Any now I need to head to bed as morning will come early ... well it actually comes the same time, it just FEELS early ... or maybe I should click and see the the Pink Saturday Ladies is ... I mean "are" ... ?? Maybe I should just quit while I'm ahead ... or not too far behind.
    Hugs!
    Betty :)
    ps ... CONGRATS on 200th posts!

  12. Congratulations on your 200th post Susie! It will take me years to get to that at my slow rate of posting. However, I love to read yours and like other readers I am constantly amazed at your energy and output, always interesting, generous and fun and often very valuable information. I'd love to win one of your journals but deep down I'd really like to see someone else win who wants you to design one of your amazing blog headers. Cheers from hot and sticky Sydney!

  25. Hi Susie..
    Congratulations on your 200th post. If I were lucky enough to win..I would love for you to design a new header for me. I desperately need a touch of a re-do on my blog..and I think a new header will do much to help. My fingers are crossed that I win..and thank you for having such a great giveaway..

  26. I have been a looky loo for awhile..I can't resist a good blog or a give away. If i am chosen I would cherish one of your journals. :-)

  27. Susie ~ Congrats on your 200th post and here's to at least 200 more! I must say I would love to win anything in your #2 category - even though I'm not sure what a coptic book would be (don't mean to be so ignorant).

    The design for a new header is oh so generous - however, ours was designed by a fellow blogger and I don't want to hurt her feelings.

    I'm excited to see who wins! Good luck to all.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yes, I'd love to win one of the books...I'd have to decide my favorite, probably the handmade journal. This is my first visit to your blog and a newbie to Pink Saturday! Should be interesting. Congratulations on your 200th post.

  29. Oh my, Suzi!!! 200 posts! I've just started blogging and I can't even imagine getting to where u are. I absolutely love your blog and the free images you so gracioulsy give. Please consider me for a custom blog header.

    Congratulations on reaching 200 posts though having met you I know you like a chat so it doesn't surprise me!! But how you find time to do so many different things I really don't know.

    Am tempted by the blog header but think I would have to opt for one of option 2 as I think it would really be something to treasure.

    Now, will have to have a look and see if you've blogged how your show went, haven't been around much lately. Cindy x

  31. Congratulations on your 200th post. Blogging can become addictive once you get stuck into it & before you know it you're making milestones.

    I would love to win option one - a new header designed especially for something I'm planning to do on my EP Designs blog. I've been trying to come up with something myself but haven't been happy with what I've done. I dont' have the know-how to put these design ideas together.

    Your prize choice is very generous. Thank you for the oportunity to enter .... hope I'm a winner.

    ciao for now,
    Elena :)

    200 posts are positively awe inspiring. I can't even seem to get started on a blog. Perhaps one day. Sigh! Anyway, I'd love to win one of your books. I know what the Japanese stab binding is, but the Coptic sounds more complicated. I'll put that one on my wish list should I be lucky enough to win. Anyway, you can reach me on "The Latest Trends In Mixed Media" yahoo group. Anne Marie - Toronto

  46. Congratulations to you! What an achievement. I would love to win one of your books - not sure of the different bindings, but I love journals of any kind. AND my birthday is December 11th, so that should make me lucky!

    Word of mouth is always the best form of advertising so I happened over here due to reading of you on a Yahoo group...how lucky am I to land here eh? I love your blog headers and side panels...makes me want to read everything here. So if my number gets picked which I'm sure it will *wink to the random counter picker* I want a blog banner....!!

  52. Congratulations on 200 posts! That's quite an accomplishment. I think I'd like a blog header if I were to win, but I'd also enjoy one of your journals. Hmmm. Decisions, probably the header would be better

  53. What a wonderful achievement, Susie- your 200th post. I've only just set up my blog and can't imagine getting to 200 posts. If I'm picked by your random number thingy the blog header would definitely be my choice! Diane x
