A happy little giveaway

Let's have a giveaway. Just a little one. But happy and colourful! One of these felt strings which will bring a happy fuzzy feeling to any room. I know I look at mine and think happy thoughts on a daily basis!

Leave a comment on this post and tell me what makes you happy. And maybe why. But that is up to you.

You must also tell me which string you prefer, multi colour or red/white/blue and of course there must be some way for me to get in touch with you. I can't accept Anonymous 'entries'...

You have until Monday 19th! Go!

Comments are now closed. Thank you all for sharing what makes you happy!


  1. All sorts of things make me happy. But, a little one I realized yesterday after the rain had let up was how happy it makes me to look out our back sliding door to see the rain-darkened trunks of the trees in contrast to the spring green leaves sprouting from the branches.

  2. multi coloured definitely!

    and what makes me happy? well right now its snuggles with my cat coz thats whats happening here but i'd also accept snuggles from my bf, crunching autumn leaves, sleeping in and moments when your dinner is just perfect and really hits the spot. along with lots of other things of course

  3. Your multi-coloured string makes me happy. And the thought of winning it makes me even happier!

  4. Hanging out with hubby... Going on vacation, playing in my sewing room... Sunshine... All make me happy! I love the multicolors!

  5. I'm also in love with the multi-colored string!
    What makes me happy are those moments where the world seems to stop spinning and everything is perfect. Pure joy in a tiny package.

  8. A good giveaway makes me happy! Seriously, the feel of my child's arms around my neck is simply joyous. would love the multicolored garland for her room.

  9. ooooh, me me, pick me!
    I would love the red, white and blue one....
    Thanks for the chance!

  10. I love the multi coloured one! Because colours are one of the things that make me happy. Really, when the sun shines and everything seems more colourful, I'm the happiest I can be :)

    Thank you for this lovely giveaway!


  11. love the multi one! such a cute, creative idea. :D

  12. My little pup, Mickey makes me happy! He hops like a bunny when he's excited and it's the cutest thing EVER! :)

    I really like them both, but if I had to pick one the different blues and red and white one!

    Cute giveaway!

  13. Watching my 13 month grandson play and giggle with Popi!! So cute!!!

    I like the multi-color offer too!!!

    Thank you so much!

  14. Jesus make me happy!! He is so wonderful and has blessed me with soooo much!! My wonderful husband, children, church, etc...

    I love both of them but if I had to pick one I would pick the multi colored one. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  15. Oh, I'm in love with the multicolored one! We've been gathering things for our first baby's nursery (he's due at the end of May, so there's not much time left!), and I think that multicolored garland would be very festive for a little one. Babies need happy rooms, after all!

  16. What makes me happy? My boyfriend!!!
    One multicolored one!

  18. These are both so cute! How about the bright for me and the blue/red for my boys! LOL! They are both just to cute!

  19. Ah, it's quite simple: colours make me happy! (So I'd like the multi-coloured one.)

  20. Got my eye on a multi-colored ;) I love what I'm doing right now - curled up on the couch after a long day, with a book or browsing craft blogs.... and I look over at my sweet greyhound curled up next to me - she is my love!

  21. I think the blue white and red ones are more "Me", but I like the multicoloured ones best.

    What makes me happy?
    My daughter, she's 2. She woke at 7 this morning, I got her in bed with us for a cuddle while we all came round. Eventually she started trying to wake me by prising my eyes open. I gave in and opened them myself. Her first words to me were "Are you happy Mummy?" How could I not be with her grinning at me asking me that?

  22. Hello! What a wonderful give-away! Thank you!
    What makes me happy? Our family's wild mint patch, baby succulents and beach stones!!!! preferably all together!

  23. What makes me happy - warm weather, sunshine, and laughing kids...the way that my 1-year-old daughter growls, barks, and laughs at every dog...other things: long eyelashes, sore muscles, and creating.

    other sources of happiness: pretty colors, inspiring blogs ;) , johnny-jump-ups, and chocolate.

  25. Hi Carina,

    Spring makes me happy because it's my favorite time of year! I love the freshness in the air, carpet of flowers, new green leaves, nature's vibrant colours at its best, and the pocketful of sunshine accompanied by the soft cool breeze.

    Actually, happiness doesn't have to come from those things or anything at all. It is found in our hearts and multiplied greater when we make others happy too.

    I love all your works and both of your felt strings, preferably the multi coloured one. Fingers-crossed that I get it!

    tassya (at) gmail.com
    Looking forward to hearing from you.

  26. The thing that is making me the happiest at the moment is looking at the feeds of all my favourite craft blogs. I've only recently just got back into creating little masterpieces and i'm inspired every day!

  27. Lately the blooming spring flowers are making me happy. We just got back from visiting family in England and it is just blooming right now. I love the bright multicolored strand.

  28. Being a mom for the first time what's been making me happy in the last months is the smile of my little girl. It's enough to make my day a special one.

  29. being crafty makes me happy! and my friends. even better when i'm being crafty WITH my friends :)

  30. Puppies make me happy!
    And cups of tea!
    And the bumper cars at Tivoli.

    I love the red, white and blue!

  31. hmm, what makes me happy. I think I'm the happiest when I'm making & discovering new things and spending time with people I love. Kinda cliché but I never want to stop learning and being involved in my life and the lives of my friends and family.

    Also...winning awesome multi-colored garland giveaways from adorable blogs makes me cheery as well. ;)

    Point is....very cute idea. I love it.


  32. SUN makes me happy!
    And I like the red white and blue- very seasonal!

  33. Easter Holidays! Ha! Actually ER + Cat + Husband which doesn't happen very often, mainly it's just me and the cat who have a thing about Dr Kovach ;-)

  34. I had to enter, I love your colourful dotty strings! What makes me happy? Walking in the door after a successfully fun family day out, all of us worn out, sun-kissed and happy to be home :)
    I am also happy that the deadline for your giveaway happens to coincide with my birthday :)


  35. The sun shining and spring finally getting here makes me happy.
    I would love the multi color string.

  36. I would love to win multicolor felt garland.
    When my baby giggles, I feel so happy and delighted.

  37. What makes me happy? Well, what IMMEDIATELY comes to mind is your blog and your work. Truly. I'm killing a little time looking for inspiration and I amble over to your blog (via my flickr contacts) and there is all this wonderful color and intelligence and humor. I don't know whether to eat your pictures or put on sunglasses. So thanks. Art made me happy and it was your art!

  38. I'd love the first string ensemble?. I'm happiest when I'm being affirmed for my God-given character. Thank you.

  39. Sorry to hear that your mother plans have being cancelled. What makes me happy. Is turning the 05.15 alarm clock on a Friday morning knowing that it won't be bothering me again until Monday!!!! I really love the multicolour string

  40. Right now I am not happy. Don't even mind if I win or not. But even if I am not happy there is always that little happy place in my heart that I can escape to, which contains all the love of my little Lucy for me and from her to me back :)

  41. I wasn't so happy until yesterday when we finally found a place to live for the end of the month! I am beyond happy now. I really like the multi-colored one, I would hang it up around the little crafty corner I'm setting up for my girls :)

  42. What makes me happy? Crochet, sun, trees so many things in the spring :)

  43. Colour makes me happy, as does seeing my rhubarb growing in the spring. It could be that pink in the brown of the dead leaves and dirt. My kids make me happy, espeicially the two who no longer live at home. I am only touching the tip of the iceberg here.

    What is the circle cutter you use for the circles? It intrigues me.

    Multi-coloured would work best, thanks!

  44. So many simple things keep me happy. Since I just ran around the house and did a bit of tidying up, I'll say being somewhat organized and ahead of the game is a happy feeling! :)

    I would choose the multi-colored ones if I were to win.

  45. Happy..aww lately i have been feeling very blessed with my life and i have god to thank for that and that makes me happy.

    That i can enjoy the little things in life being loved by my husband and children, being healthy, not being in a war or starving to death..just being alive and loved makes me happy

    I love the multi colored one it would go perfectly in my sewing room :)
