A while ago I bought two copies of ‘At home kinderen’, it’s a special of the ‘Ariadne at home’ magazine. One was to keep and one to give away on my blog. I don’t know why but it never came to posting the give away.

But today, to celebrate the return of my creative crafting flow, and as a late celebration of my 100th blogpost (this is actually number 116) I give away three issues of ‘At home kinderen’ the two 2008 issues and the latest 2010 issue.

To make a chance to receive these magazines, please leave a comment to this post where you let me know your current favorite craft book. Mine is still this Japanese crochet book.

You have till sunday night to leave a comment, on monday June 21st I will announce the winner.

    My favorite craft book at this moment isn’t a real book. It’s the internet and all the wonderful blogs that I read everyday. It givees me all the inspiration that I need.
    I hope this counts as a “Give Away-comment”.


    our computer seems to be having trouble with the internet connection. Hopefully this comment doesn’t reach you 10 times!!!

    Dear Petra,
    although I think magazines are great as well, my favorite craft book is probably “Tilda’s Winterwonderland”. I made several ‘tasjes’ (on page 90) and it is a nice present for friends.
    When my children celebrate their birthday in school, I always make a bag for the teacher. They are always surprised that it is handmade.
    The first year I give a bag size A4, the second year the little Tilda bag for make-up or little goodies, and the third year… I will see next year as our eldest will go to the 3rd year in September.
    “Tilda’s winterwonderland” is a book that will last forever because it features things that I will make when I have more patience, maybe when I am a grandmother…
    I wish you good luck with your crafty projects!
    Greetings, Vera

    Wat fijn dat ik toevallig langs je blog kom… ja kent dat wel, beetje blog-hoppen… en dan ontdek je weer mooie, creatieve blogs!
    Ik maak al ‘n paar jaar wenskaarten, maar toen ik het boek “Amigurumi, gehaakte dieren – Annie Obaachan – Librero” in handen kreeg… toen ben ik met haken en breien begonnen!! Ook zo fijn om op die manier creatief bezig te zijn!!

    Groetjes, Saskia :)

    Mijn favoriete boek is momenteel moderne quiltontwerpen van kathy doughty en sarah fielke.
    en daarbij al de handwerkboeken uit de bieb…

    groetjes Lucie

    Ik heb dit moment ook geen favoriet boek. Ik doe de meeste inspiratie op in verschillende blogs, daar kan ik uren in snuffelen!

    My favourite book at the moment is Pretty color crochet and knit goods – Part 1, I lovelovelove the crochet projects there. I think I need to buy your favourite as well, since it is the second book in this same series.

    I love making funny Amigurumi and other little figurs!

    My favorit craft book is: Creepy Cute Crochet by Christen Haden.

    I like crocheting monsters, Ninjas and so on. They are very nice as a gift and also as a eye-catcher in my livingroom. ;-)

    Greeting and have a nive weekend!

    Hello! My new favorite book, which I bought today, is One-Yard Wonders by Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins. I have recently begun sewing and crafting again and love the idea of using up some of the stash I have collected.
    Have a great weekend!

    That is a tough question, there are so many great books out there, but my favorite right now is a book by Yoko Saito about making quilted handbags. Each one is exquisite, like a peice of art.

    Glad you are feeling creative! May you have an inspiring weekend.

    Drop by my blog if you would like to join in my give away.

    hoi petra,

    lees jouw blog regelmatig! krijg er altijd een vrolijk en zomers gevoel van, kleurrijk als het is. mijn favoriete ‘craftbook’ is niet een specifiek boek, maar bladeren en ‘snuisteren’ in allerlei tijdschriften (van 101 woonideeen tot hele oude ‘knippies’) brengt me altijd op ideeen!
    groet, antoinette

    I’m really loving my Japanese craft books at the moment. I get them from Etsy and they are just full of amazing ideas. Knowledge of Japanese is not necessary either (phew!) as the diagrams are so clear.
