Giveaway to celebrate 15 Followers!

I started the crafty-mermaid blog soon after I moved to New Zealand and wanted to have a record of the things I'd been making.  I wanted a way of sharing this with some of my friends in Ireland, the US and even in New Zealand.  

The last few years have been pretty changeable.  I made some wonderful NZ friends and moved in with them. I met and fell in love with BM. Moved in with him and his two cats and then convinced him to move!  This year, we bought a house together and I love, love, love it.  An Teach Gorm (the blue house). Its been wonderful to document all the changes and to look at the emerging pattern in 20:20 hindsight.
As well as a visual record, I've also found some wonderful, colourful, bright and beautiful blogs.  I've visited blogs and started and entered into conversations.  Others have called in here and said hi or 'oh that's nice!' and its all been greatly appreciated.  I had a rather nice surprize today when I realised that I had 15 followers.  I'm so glad you're interested in calling in and seeing what I've been up to.  I really enjoy all your comments and love visiting all your blogs.  I spend a lot of my time being inspired by what others have created.

So I want to say thank you!  I'm offering a giveaway - to anywhere in the world - I'd like to put together a package of crafty-mermaid crafts and post it to one or two of you.  All you have to do is leave a comment on this post or follow my blog and let me know which of the following makes you'd like.
Option A: Crochet Bunting

Option C: Cath Kidson Bag (home sewn from the book Sew with additional lining and internal pockets)


I'll also include a selection of my cards.

I'll pick the winners on the 30th of September.


  1. I especially love option B. Nice giveaway!

  2. You are very talented, I am very challenged in the arena of fibre arts. I was a dunce at crochet class last year and still can't do it, nor can I use a sewing machine. I can knit dishcloths and scarves, and that's about it :)
    I love that bag!

  3. This is a lovely and very generous givaway. Hard to choose, but I think I would go with the Cath Kidston bag. Lovely for the spring weather!

  4. omg... i missed this one!! i love crochet so first priority wud have been B but i also love handmade bags and the fabric looks lovely, so C too... :D

  5. Thanks so much for commenting - I was away this weekend so will pick a winner tonight!
