100th blog post! Etsy news and a giveaway!

Happy 100th blog post to me! It's almost a year since I started this whole blogging game, and I only ever really expected that my friends and family would be interested (and even then only for a few weeks!). The support I've received from other bloggers around the world has been incredible, and I'm so grateful to have made it this far.

There have been a few highlights along the way, the biggest and best of which was my Apartment Therapy house call early this year. A big thanks to the lovely Jenny for arranging that for me! The other big highlight was writing the Brisbane city guide for Design*Sponge, and the even bigger highlight was the wonderful people I came into contact with as a result.

I've decided to celebrate my 100th post achievement with the announcement of the Flying Ducks Etsy store! Many of you may remember my crafty attempt last month, which involved printing leaves onto tote bags. I received some great feedback, so I decided I had nothing to lose and started an Etsy store. I may sell some, I may sell none - I'll never know if I don't give it a try! Please pop over and have a look at my store, and don't hesitate to give me feedback of any kind, as any comments are most welcome.

AND, to celebrate the launch of the Flying Ducks Etsy store, I have three of my 'prototype' bags to give away! To enter, all you need to do is leave a comment (and your email address if I can't contact you via a blog). If you mention this post on Facebook, Twitter, your own blog or somewhere else on the internet, leave another post letting me know for another entry. Hurrah!


Entries will close next Sunday night (13 June) at 7.00pm Brisbane time. Good luck!

Oh, and Emma from Sirens and Sailors, you do not need to enter - I still have your special bag waiting for you! I'll post it out with the others.
