new name and a giveaway

Well I've finally decided to change the name of my blog to 'mousehouse' seeing as it's a little confusing having mousehouse, Simple Pleasures and domesticblissnz all on my blog! I can't change the URl (although I have got www.mousehouse.co.nz which redirects to my blog) but at least my blog name and felt shop are the same now.
So I thought I'd have a little giveaway to celebrate my new name, the fact that this is my 100th post and it's my birthday this week too!
I've had heaps of fun gathering up a few goodies for this giveaway...if you are a stationery fiend like me I think you'll like it :)
My mousehouse giveaway prize includes
- a mousehouse waterproof zip purse in 'yellow flower' with a hot pink zip
-an Orla Kiely notepad
-a Belle & Boo badge
-blue and white 'Katy Did' bakers twine
-a roll of 'deco' Kozo tape
-a spotty pencil and a pink soccer ball eraser
-two sheets of cute animal stickers
-a hippo cardboard cut out animal from here to put together
-a pack of 30 'cellobags' to make your own greeting card/gift card packs or whatever else you fancy!
To enter all you have to do is...
-leave a comment on this post telling me your favourite mousehouse zip purse in my Felt shop. If you don't have a blog you are still welcome still enter, just leave your email address in your comment. International entries welcome too.

For extra entries if you want you can
-follow my blog
-'like' my mousehouse facebook page
-tweet about this giveaway mentioning @megsmousehouse
twitter.com/megsmousehouse
-put my giveaway button on your blog
Just let me know in the comments section- each one above gets you an extra entry :)
Giveaway will close in a week - Tuesday 20th July at 7pm NZ time.
I'm really enjoying having a blog so I thought I'd write a list of some of the things I love about joining all the crafty bloggers out there...
*taking part in swaps like the pin cushion swap and the vintage baby swap
*winning blog giveaways
*being part of a community that I didn't realise existed until I started blogging,  and meeting new people online and in real life
*taking part in fun things like this and this
*getting amazing inspiration and ideas for crafty projects
*being able to ask for advice on things like getting a walking foot, easy recipe ideas, book ideas etc
*having a place to record all my own lists and ideas - a bit like an online scrapbook
*sharing my ideas with others and getting lovely feedback about them
*looking at the world in a different way, noticing things I might not have before I had a blog
*a record/journal for my girls to read one day

Good luck with the giveaway!
Megan 
Edit: just looked again and I've actually only written 95 posts,  I added up the wrong numbers!

Rhiannon said...

congrats on 100 posts, I'm almost halfway there. And happy birthday week :)
you know i'm a follower, i liked your facebook page (thought i'd already done that but I hadn't), and added your button to my blog. Great package of goodies!
Oh, and I LOVE the pink & green flower purse, reminds me of a vintage sheet print, yum.

Amber said...

My girls love all things stationery/crafty and they might end up sharing if I win. So I thought I'd get them to choose what purse they liked in the hope they'd all pick the same one (or at least the same one as I liked). But, of course, they all liked different ones - BigMiss liked the yellow flowers, MiddleMiss liked the Hello Kitty then changed her mind to the Pink & Green Flowers, and LittleMiss liked the Woodland Animals. Oh, and I liked the Cherries. I suppose it's good they're showing their individuality!

And I've enjoyed following your blog for a bit now...

Jen said...

Congrats on almost 100 posts and your birthday! Mine was on Sunday. I think I've done it right - I liked you on Facebook, added your button to my blog. My favourite purse in your felt shop is the Optic Blossom make up purse. Oh, and what a lovely giveaway you have put together!

Trish Brice said...

Optic Blossom is my fav! we must almost share a birthday, Im the 21st. Count down is on until the "big day" - exciting!! Love to win your givewaway..

Christine J said...

Super cute giveaway! And I love reading your posts! :) I think I would choose the cherries purse! Love the pattern... although I really like all of them! hehe :) Oh and Happy Birthday!!

Kelly said...

Close enough to 100 posts ;)

Hope you have a wonderful birthday. I already have my favourite zip purse :D but I love the look of the tools design - Elijah could use one of those.

and you're so right - a blog is like an online scrapbook. I love looking back at old posts knowing I haven't been sitting idle.

Will pop the button up on my blog :D

I love the retro vintage feel your pink & green flower purse has about it, so sweet :)

I've liked your FB page & also sent out a tweet about your giveaway (www.twitter.com/felixandlily)

Congrats on 100 posts & i hope you have an amazing birthday <3

Ninotchka said...

Congrats on all those posts and Happy Birthday! I'm having a hard time picking a fav purse - for me it would be the geometric red one (I have that fabric in green...love it!) but for my daughter the ballerinas are uber cute. LOVE the personalised bag for kids - thats genius! I've 'like'd you on facebook and I would love to grab your button - but I can see the hypertext to copy on my screen. Can you have a fiddle with it and I'll check in on you late? I've had no joy whatsoever finding cellophane bags in my local $2 shops - I did find one that used to stock them, but they told me they hadn't had them for over a year :(.... fingers crossed I'll win this fantastic stash of goodies, but otherwise can you email me notchka at g mail dot com if you are still happy to get me some and I can arrange some $$ for you :)

Seaside Siblings said...

Hello,
I came over from CottonKiwi. I like your Yellow Flower purse.

What a generous giveaway! I see you like the Charles Schultz biography. It's a fabulous read, isn't it? There's a whole generation now that doesn't know who Snoopy & the Gang are ... I think that's sad.

Dee said...

My favourite is the ballet girls purse. I would put your giveaway on my blog but that would lessen my chances of winning...selfish I know but it all looks so cool!

My favourite is definitely the black swirl XL zip purse/Nappy wallet. I covet this at the moment, my theory is you can never have too many nappy wallets, right??
