So here's the 'bumper' prize to celebrate 100 weeks of the Snippet Playground

Very kindly donated by Joanna Sheen:

Joanna Sheen Ltd - Stokeinteignhead, United Kingdom
And this is what you'd get:

Speedball Brayer
Cuttlebug embossing folder – 'Thanks'
Crafts-Too embossing folder ' Daisy Delight'
Joanna Sheen 'Wordy' rubber stamps set
Joanna Sheen 'Up the Garden Path' rubber stamps set (Wendy Cotterill)
Joanna Sheen 'Meet the Gleanies - Cuddle Up' rubber stamps set
Joanna Sheen 'House Mouse - Silly Summer' decoupage sheets
Joanna Sheen 'Ink Jet Textile Transfer Paper'
Joanna Sheen 'Cup Kitties' decoupage sheets
Pack of Magenta thin cork sheets
Pack of Prima Flowers 'Petal Pins'
Pack of clear rhinestone gem trim – three rows wide

A lovely variety of goodies to play with and try out new things. And all you have to do is to enter a total three snippets makes into the Playground across this week and next - of course you can enter three per week if you like but I'm only looking for three altogether!

The tale behind this prize is that, although I love the Playground to be independent and want us to remain that way, I did ask if the lovely peeps at Joanna Sheen's would be interested in helping us to celebrate 100 weeks in the Playground as a 'one'off'. Despite, like many companies, them having to refrain from taking on more regular sponsorships (which wasn't what I hoped for anyhow) - this lovely selection arrived just a few days later. Quite a few items aren't available any longer in Joanna's shop - and I think that's what makes it all the more fun.



  1. Wonder if we can rustle up some goodies on Saturday from the stall holders.!! Hugs Mrs A.

  2. Oooh what a wonderful bunch of goodies.....Congratulations on 100 weeks in the playground and good luck for the next 100 and more : )

  3. Congrats on your 100 - you'll get many more I'm sure, its just so much fun to play with you! What I like best are your kind comments - always amazed how you find the time to do that for everybody. Thanks, Di!

  4. OMG how rich prize
    good luck to all
    hugs Tamara

  5. What a wonderful prize! How generous of them.
    We are lucky to have you and all you do for us...100 weeks is fantastic...well done, Miss.

    Little Miss C has even made some cards which I will submit for her if this lazy Grandma can get the blog posts written in time.

    I should have thought to tell her to write what she wants it to say and then I could have taken a picture of it! Less work for me and a good chuckle for the gang as she is still learning to spell!

  6. Fabulous prize Di, well done you not only for the prize but for all your hard work.
    I do not want to be entered for the draw, thank you.
    I can see Mrs A being on a mission now to get things from the stall holders lol.

  7. Fabulous prize Di. All I need to do now is find some crafting time!

  8. Oh how lovely of Joanna Sheen to donate such gorgeous candy goodies for the 100th snippet challenge such a generous person she is and well done you Di for keeping it going take care xx

  9. Ooarr Miss, how super is all that candy, yum!!

    Must confess Joanna Sheen are a big fav. with me cos they post free to Oz. Now that is kind too...

    An yes Miss was kinda hanging over the playground gates yesterday, comes of living in Oz, and being way ahead of you over there :) love Shaz in Oz.

  10. 100 weeks of mayhem! Although you seem to have finally outlawed the biting and scratching I fear it may return in the rush to own this little pile of crafty goodness- poor Parsnip better be wearing his body armour and crash helmet (he can borrow mine if he likes) in case he gets trampled in the crush!
    Thanks for all your efforts Di - have enjoyed my days out in the Playground! x

  11. 100 weeks since you took over from Jules is really hard to believe, almost two years of fun! What an amazing prize from Joanna Sheen too, I know they're an excellent company to deal with and they're about the only place my mam will trust to order a few bits from too. Very generous. Looking forward to joining in.


  12. Wow, what a haul! Someone's going to be very happy!

  13. Wowser Miss! You've outdone yourself. Huge congrats on reaching #100 snippet challenges.

    Wanted to let you know I got some happy mail this morning - have die cut myself a couple of snowflakes already - fanks eva so Miss xx

  14. Just popped back to say the postal measure is not here yet...believe you me...I am trotting up to the postal box every day to check! The super box is about 4 or 5 houses up the street from me.
    I am hopeing for today!

  15. Congrats on 100 weeks! Time really flies when you're having fun, and what a generous prize package for some lucky playground participant!

  16. Whar a wonderful prize, Di, and so kind of Joanna Sheen's to donate so much to celebrate the 100th week of the Snippet Playground :) Almost two years of fun ...

    MANY CONGRATS on your 100th Playground Post. You are a total star and it's always such fun to come and play at the Snippets Playground.

  22. Golly Gee - some great prizes and I am away from supplies! Just my darned luck. You are a super-Playground minder to get all these wonderful goodies to offer, and it's much appreciated. Good idea to do the 'one-off' (yes, I know I've been watching too much Brit TV, I'm picking up the lingo!). I don't think you'll have any trouble meeting your goal entries. Hugs & TFS
