UPDATED: Handmade Christmas Special {Giveaway}

UPDATE: Disqus commenting system has been removed and reverted back to Blogger commenting system. If you left a comment earlier, please check that it's still there, otherwise please leave another one. Thanks.

Remember when I showed you my cover in Handmade Magazine? If not, click here and have a look at that post.



It’s a Christmas Special with lot’s of gorgeous projects to make and inspire you – plus it’s out in plenty of time to get started on festive sewing.

Earlier this week, I found another copy of the Handmade Magazine in my mailbox. It had been sent from the publisher. Yay!

I thought that maybe one of my lovely friends would like this extra copy? I’ve had a lot of Australia Only giveaways lately, so this one will be open internationally.



Just leave a comment here or on the Samelias’ Mum Facebook Page – tell me something fun or quirky or silly or embarrassing. Really, just tell me anything you like.

I’ll choose a winner late next week (after we settle into our new house).
I shall continue packing up the kids rooms. Who know they could fit (and hide) so much into their bedrooms!?!?

  1. Well, I'll tell you I need to win this as I'm having craft magazine withdrawals, haha! And something funny - the other day my son was thanking my husband for yumminess and instead said, "Thanks dad for my penis!"

  2. This is embarrassing. I bought toilet paper today only to discover the cupboard at home already so full of toilet paper. We will never run out that's for sure. We could set up shop.

  3. I am typing this quickly, so our four kittens won't type you a message themselves, or delete what I've written. Some people might think that is cute or quirky--sometimes it seems embarrassing: "kittens everywhere!"

  6. Last year we made santa stockings with deliberate hole so hints of what's inside poked through to tantalise the kids

  8. My husband tacked his first hexagon for English Paper Piecing last night - I'd say that's quirky!

  9. I don't have a great story, but I do think I am insane to add projects to my do to list, faster than I finish them.

  10. Well, since you said anything, I will tell you about my craft room transition! I'm so very excited I have to tell. I'm moving from a tiny bedroom, into a huge room that was intended to be a game room for a pool table. You know it is big then. I painted it yesterday. My neighbor is taking my big old treadmill off my hands out of the room, and in trade she is giving me furniture and stuff for the room. Last night she showed me a nice big chair and a half (extra wide chair) for the room. It is floral and comfy. (I think I shall get a slip cover for it). But I love it! And she has floor lamps for me too. YAY ME!

  12. Oh what a great feeling to be on the cover. Here in Germany I never saw this magazine, so I have to win it from you, lol. I would be very happy, because christmas is coming so soon and I don´t have any ideas for christmas crafting.

  22. Congratulations for being on the cover of the magazine!
    I just picked my first yellow tomatoes today. And my son says "mom they look like pears." I said "yes, they are yellow pear tomatoes". He thought that was really cool that they were a different shape & color! :)

  23. Congrats on your magazine coup!
    Last night I was up sewing way too late - how did I know it was too late? I sewed two squares together to make a "flip" triangle, ironed it up the right way...it looked perfect, then proceeded to trim the excess...yep you guessed it...I trimmed off the bit I wanted to keep!!!
