300th post freebie day

1 year, 9 months and a couple weeks later it's post number 300!
and what a lot of fun I've had :-)

It's a strange freaky coincidence that my 300th post is the very same day as April freebie day, so I've added a few more prizes than I normally would :-)
April's freebie is a Tortoise freebie....1st name out of the hat will win......Wilbur ::
He is a very friendly tortoise...he doesn't mind if you use him as a cushion, or (if you are quite little) having a little sit down on his back.
He is house trained BUT he loves to climb up onto an armchair or sofa, and because he's a tortoise it takes a while for him to get there!!
Rest assured, once he's there he'll get comfortable....
He likes to listen to the radio or watch a bit of TV, oh and he's quite partial to dark chocolate!
He's a bit of a dude and likes nothing more than throwing a little armchair party::
So if you would like Wilbur to come and live with you then leave a comment on this post, if you're not lucky enough to win Wilbur you may win one of these ::
Little tortoise brooches and magnets :-)
So 7 winners all together, hurrah!
Freebie Instructions::
1. leave a comment on this post
2. make sure your comment allows me to contact you
3. (optional) buy some dark chocolate to welcome Wilbur, and if you don't win you can eat it yourself!
Winners will be announced next Thursday (10th April 2008)

Hello Wilbur - We have space on our sofa if you fancy coming round here :)
I'm sure Emma would love you to bits xx

Crafty Daffodil said...

Hello hello! Wilbur is a real sweety, I have recently started a diet that allows half a small bar of dark choc a day, I would happily share the remainder with this little fellow! I can be contacted at anggallant@yahoo.co.uk should I be deemed lucky enough to be a winner!

Hi Wilbur ..... nobody in this house likes dark chocolate, so you can eat all the stuff that's in our cupboards!
You can contact me through my blog :o)

Hello Wilbur :-)
I have a nine month old baby girl, who would surely love being your friend, since you're so pink and all... She only eats soup, fruit and milk so I guess she won't mind if you have all the chocolate in the house yourself, and we do usually have a lot.
You can reach me through flickr (aka - linhasebolinhos)

Michaela said...

Dear Wilbur,

Please come to my house, I have chocolate crispy cakes ready and waiting for you, or you can just have chocolate without the crispy bits if you want!

Love from
Michaela

Teresa said...

Hi, I love your work and my dougters would love Willbur! ;-)

Indigo Blue said...

My 5 year old actually has some little Easter eggs left and would be more that willing to share with Wilbur if he came to live with us permantly!
He is so cute!
300th Congratualtions too! has the time gone quickly?

Congratulations and thank you for sharing Wilbur! Does he like Lindt Dark Chocolate with Orange? It's a favorite around here, but we'd be happy to provide him with his own preference, of course! He won't fight with my husband over the remote will he?

RooKnits said...

He's gorgeous!

Anonymous said...

Hey....Wilbur looks a very friendly little chap. He'd fit in very well here. He'd have lots of cats and a dog to keep him company. xxx

Love Bex. x

Thank you for the buttons and ribbons - they were here to greet me on my return and they are GORGEOUS - as is your packaging :-)

Congratulations on reaching 300 posts Sarah ... that's some achievement. Wilbur looks an absolute sweetheart - though I'm not sure we have any dark chocolate in the house? :-O Would milk or white do? x

raker said...

Mmm, tasty turtle!!!

Dragonfly said...

I like to see a tortoise who is in touch with his feminine side (being pink and all!). I have just the spot for him and plenty of chocolate, of course!
Thank you for the felt - so beautifully packaged, I could hardly bear to open it! And well done on 300 posts!

(contact details on my blog!)

fi said...

As cute as Wilbur is, I'd be happy to settle for a brooch or magnet (the post to here would be way cheaper too!!!) Congrats on your 300th...

Jennifer said...

There's plenty of chocolate to share at my place! Love those tortoise brooches though :)

jojoebi said...

Hey Wilbur, my little boy has a girl tortoise maybe you can get together, eat chocolate and make little tortoises!

Vanessa said...

I've got a nice big sofa waiting for him at our house, I also have a little bum that would love to sit on Wilbur (not mine, I would kill him!).

I won't buy any dark chocolate, I will have to buy milk chocolate and turn him as I hate chocolate, it always reminds me of my dad's diabetic chocolate!

Sheri said...

Wilbur is welcome to come live with me and my boys. There is plenty of room on the sofa and I'll even share the remote with him.....come on over.

Jenn said...

I'm lovin all the turtle cuteness. I can't wait to see what you come up with next!

pink-petal-designs said...

Love to have Wilbur - or one of his friends - hope it is not a problem that we of Chez WMK eat Milk Chocolates here...

TheOutfitter said...

Plead Wilbour be mine!! :D

odd dotty said...

Oh this is perfect! I am directing "Charlotte's Web" for our homeschool group, of which my daughter is a part. AND we were just learning about the diefference between turtles and tortoises and now she is all about them. And so, she would absolutely love a tortoise named Wilbur!

BTW, I am so glad to see that Squashitty was a part of the armchair party. :)

Ooh, I really do hope that Wilbur can come see me. My birthday is tomorrow, so I'll make sure to save him some cake!

picperfic said...

Hello, what a lovely blog you have! Michaela sent me over here. To win Wilbur would be very timely as I have a houseful of guests coming to stay soon and not enough seats so the little ones will be sat on cushions. Your work is beautiful :^)
