I {heart} Frankie Magazine (and a giveaway!)

Wednesday, March 10, 2010


Anyone who knows me will know how much I love Frankie Magazine. I have nearly every issue from the beginning, I never throw one away and I keep them guarded from others' sticky fingers (mainly my daughters and my boyfriends...). I love to pour over them for inspiration and a regular dose of loveliness.

You can imagine my elation when I saw Bam Bam Creative on the Frankie Blog! Right there, smack up the top and in pride of place on the page. I honestly, nearly cried with joy.

Thank you Frankie!

As a special celebration I'm going to do a give-away!

This cutie could be yours!

If you would like to win your very own Hoppity Hoppity Bunny Necklace, please leave a comment below telling me your favourite item from my shop and why, along with your details (so I can contact you if you win!). If you would like another entry, just become a fan on facebook and let me know you have done so.

Winner will be drawn in about a week or so, I'm not going to be mean about it with a deadline. Don't live in NZ or Australia? All good, you can still enter xx

AND for super awesomeness, this is my 100th post!

Hi Jessica,

I absolutely ADORE your bunny zipper purse! Here are a few reasons why I love it:

1. It's bunny shaped - they are my most favourite animal!

2. It's handmade with love!

3. I love that I've got something to put all those loose coinage in. OR - to put that once-in-a-month female "stuff" in! hahaha!

4. I love the floral patterned fabric you've used! Anything floral is to die for!

5. The combination of pastel colours just reminds me of a good summers day :)

6. Oh, and simply coz its CUTE!

Wow - you have some beautiful products! I have to say my fave would be the Woodland Folk Cushion - Babe In the Wood. I think its just beautiful - quite calming if that's the right word!

Off to find you on facebook now :)

Hi Jess,

Congratulations! I am a huge fan of Frankie as well, so it's very cool that they've taken notice of your work!

My favourite is the Hoppity Hoppity Bunny cushion - it's such a cute design, especially in the blue plaid. When I have a couch to my name, I'll be sure to buy one to put on it!

I'm already a fan on Facebook too :)

Hi Jess,

I love all of your crafty goodness, especially your bunny purses. When I feel uninspired at work I hop (much like a bunny) on to your blog or facebook page (as I am a fan of course!) for a burst of beautiful inspiration.

I also love Frankie and think it is brill that they have found you!

But I have two favourites the Hoppity Hoppity Bunny Zipper Purse, and the Long Lost Nga Huia Wall Sticker. Wonderful. I think your blog is brillo, I check it out often.

Oh how funny. I was just this evening sitting at my hairdressers reading a Frankie mag! I'd never seen it before and was thinking how cool it was - there was a great brooch feature and these really unusual notebooks made from old sewing pattern covers with crocheted edges! Well done on featuring in their blog - awesome!

Ruby in the Dust  – (March 12, 2010 at 11:15 PM)

Too hard to choose!!! I love your babe in the wood necklace and your gorgeous baby blanket, I pretty much love all your product! xxx

R.W. Scissors  – (March 15, 2010 at 7:37 AM)  

I like the gift vouchers, because they can lead to buying any one of a number of nice things from your shop! Also, they are pretty. Aaand because I know how much work went into getting them perfect.
Please remember the little people when you are famous!

Congrats Jess. I love the bunnie necklace. Why? I love necklaces and I love bunnies. Simple!

erin carver  – (March 17, 2010 at 4:32 PM)  

Wow, congrats Jess on the Frankie feature and on hitting 100 posts, that's awesome! It is so hard to choose just one favourite from your shop but I think the one that's winning me over the most at the moment has to be your Hoppity Hoppity Bunny in green flocking - I am LOVING that green fabric!

PaisleyJade  – (March 17, 2010 at 6:57 PM)  

How cool to see your stuff in Frankie!!! I just love your woodland folk cushions - all your stuff is amazing!!

Bee  – (March 17, 2010 at 8:36 PM)  

Wahoo at Frankie! Well done Miss!
I love all your stuff but in particular your baby blankies. They look so cosy I wish I was small enough to snuggle up in one!

Rose  – (March 17, 2010 at 10:42 PM)  

I think my favourite is the Babe in the Wood wall art, but all your stuff is gorgeous! Well done on being featured on the Frankie blog, great work.

I saw your Babe In The Woods necklace on Felt and I want to buy it for my daughter but I'm not able to pay it ... I still try to make it work! Lovely greetings from Belgium!

Chrissy  – (March 18, 2010 at 4:53 PM)  

I love your Babe in the Woods necklace too!

Cotton Kiwi  – (March 19, 2010 at 6:26 PM)  

Hi Jess, coming to this late but better late than never! Congrats on the Frankie appearance! Very cool. My favourite thing in your shop is the Babe in the Wood cushion in the pink dusky rose paisley because I'm a sucker for fawns and the fabric is divine.

Elisabeth  – (March 19, 2010 at 9:04 PM)  

I love the Pink & Green Paisley Babe In The Wood. Why? Because I <3 paisley, and also because your fawns are so adorable!
