I'm Celebrating!

This week marks the one year anniversary of the Mill Lane Studio blog. I also reach another milestone - my 100th post!

So I'm celebrating..... it's time to give a way some blog candy - this gorgeous, handmade resin bangle and ring set. If you'd like to win it, then read on.....
'fetti bangle and ring

As I sat here at this time last year pondering what to write about on this blog I had absolutely no idea what I was going to share with you....... I wasn't sure that anyone was even going to be reading! So I decided to dive in head first and post whatever I was working on at the time.

Along the way I played with a wide variety of media and amongst my favourites have been Krafty Lady Art Moulds, Friendly Plastic, Lumiere paint and resin. I also posted about alcohol inks, the Cuttlebug (just love this tool), Core'dinations cardstock and even some storage ideas. I had a lot of fun working on the 12 days of Christmas challenge (a very popular project with readers). And jewellery has featured very prominently amongst the projects I've worked on. There have been a few tutorials peppered amongst the posts too.

But even now, I'm not always sure if you like what I post about so I figure that the best way to find out what you like to read and learn about is to ask you. So, leave your comments at the bottom of this post and you'll be in the draw to win. Not in Australia? No worries - I will post the prize anywhere in the world. Don't forget to leave me your details so that I can contact you if you're the winner. I'll keep the draw open until 8.00pm (AEST), Sunday 30 March 2009 and I'll use a random number generator to draw the winner. The winner will be announced shortly after and will have 3 days to claim their prize.

So if you'd like to be in the draw, please leave your comment about what you like to read.

  1. What fun. I enjoy all kinds of posts about tools and techniques on any kind of art and crafts. I'm primarily a gourd artist but also paint and am looking to try many new to me media. This is the first time I've visited your blog but only because I just learned of it. :)

  2. I love looking at your processes - they are so inspiring. I live in Denmark and know not one other person using these techniques and / or materials.
    I appreciate your willingness to share ideas, and really enjoy being able to buy a tutorial from you - workshop info.
    Your products are beautiful - I think you have the ability to combine interesting techniques with a "clean" sense of design, and that inspires me.
    Thanks so much, Mylene

  3. I have just posted to the FP list about your lovely bangles with the inclusions, so what a nice surprise to see one of them featured on your blog as a prize. You don't have to worry about visitors to your blog, there are plenty of lovely things to keep people's interest. I think you are jolly good to post so regularly.

  4. Mylene, I just stumbled across your site via the Scrapbook Expo page. Your work is beautiful & different. Even though I don't (can't) make the jewellery, I love looking at your work & reading the process. I've added you to my favourites & will enjoy checking in with you again.

  5. I joined the FP Yahoo list after seeing a video with Linda Peterson on YouTube and saw your blog!
    It is now on my Google Reader , so I know when you update!
    This is such a lovely bracelet and ring! Thanks for offering it up!

  6. Well, if you know me, you'd know I'm here for surprises! Anything that gives you a kick is what should be on your blog. It's not a lesson (though it can be), we're not paying, so you need to share what you are uniquely good at. You keep surprising me with materials and designs I haven't thought of before.
    I know that's not a very useful answer! But hey, it's a nice day for writing.

  7. Mylene...i love reading about all your work...of course...I am especially drawn to your resin...I LOVE my orange bangle!!!
    I am rather intrigued with this firendly plastic you have been using...its the first I have heard of it...and am finding it fascinating! Keep writing...and more importantly...keep making!!! MWAH
