The Story of a Wool and Flax Giveaway

I've got a couple of little princesses in my life, you all know that. They don't always act like it mind you, they do the usual amount of fighting and tantrums and tears. But really, most of the time they look out for one another and help each other out.

Having two girls means lots of dress-ups, tea-parties and Disney Princess paraphernalia. But I wouldn't have it any other way. Someone who understands exactly how I feel is my good friend Joan. She has two daughters of her own (and a little boy on the way - which is why we ran our Birthing Classes together that I blogged about here)

Our combined total of 4 girls get along like a house on fire. To the point where if we're at an event together such as church, we have to coordinate our departure otherwise there would be too many tears if one family were to leave before the other! Joan's eldest daughter recently had a Princess Birthday Party which both my girls were super-excited to attend, and we spend some time together dreaming up the perfect birthday card for the occasion, with plenty of glitter and sparkle and the fabulous FWAB Chloe Pink Flourish!

It was a wonderful event with crown-making, treasure hunts, dragon games, and a castle cake. If you're interested, Joan has some wonderful photos up on her own blog of all the Princess Adventures.

Which brings me to the point of today's story! My amazingly talented and crazily busy friend Joan has recently opened her own crafty store called Wool and Flax selling some of the most luxuriously elegant and exclusive wools and yarns. Here's what she had to say about her products, "our feature line is the comprehensive range of beautiful yarns by Manos del Uruguay, the only wool manufacturer to be a member of the World Fair Trade Organisation.  Manos del Uruguay is fairly new to Australian shores and offers luscious blends of fibres in a wide and wonderful range of colours. I know you'll fall in love with them too."  

I would really appreciate it it if you popped over and checked out Joan's new store and blog and left her some love. Leave her a comment on her blog telling her I sent you, and then come back here and tell me you did! There just might be a mystery RAK in it for one lucky winner!
Winner will be drawn on the 11th November.
And just so you can all be winners, Joan has been generous enough to offer my readers a special promotion to her store. If you enter the coupon code: 'ScrappyPromo' at checkout you'll get 10% off between 1st and 10th of November!
