100 Posts Celebration and Giveaway!

Last week, I officially published 100 blog posts! In fact, my hundredth post was this delicious mango milkshake post. 
I started my blog over 4 years ago, in 2010, to share my creative adventures, from cooking to painting to photography. Over the years, I've been able to hone my cooking skills, and improve my photography. I've had opportunities to share these recipes with people from all over the world and participate in wonderful collaborations.
Reaching 100 posts is a huge achievement for me. The time, effort, and dedication it takes to create blogposts is only known by bloggers and their families. I want to thank my mom, for her encouragement and support, my hubby, for his support and the awesome lens he got me, and you, all my readers. You are the reason I keep blogging and writing. Thank you. 

So the reason why I'm bombarding you with pictures of the eggs I've painted is that I've decided to giveaway a custom painted, handmade ostrich egg! To enter the giveaway...
  • leave a comment below saying what you would want painted on the egg.
  • like Best of Wardah facebook page here
  • pin a Best of Wardah pinterest image.  (optional)
  • subscribe via email to the blog. (optional)
  • please DO NOT comment anonymously! Leave your full name, or else I will not be able to find the winner. Make sure to check Facebook on Sunday to see who won.
  • deadline to enter is Sunday, October 19, 2014 at 12:00 am. The giveaway has been extended till October 26th! 
For each additional entry, leave another comment saying what you did for a total of 4 entries per person. I will post the winner on the Facebook page on October 19, next week Sunday. Make sure to add your email (which is private) when you comment. Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor!

Aaaahhhh! 100 posts! Congrats my boo! mashaAllah keep them coming! I remember several years ago you told me about your blog at the masjid during a Ramadan Iftar. I went home, looked it up, and couldn't find it. The next time I saw you, you got mad at me. You then spelled out your blog so I couldn't misspell it again and I subscribed right then and there XD hahaha and now it's great to see how evolved your blog has became! Keep the posts coming, and if you're ever in town, and you need someone to taste test your stuff, I am always available ;)

As for the Ostrich Egg, I don't know what I want haha. mashaAllah all of them are so beautiful, it's hard to say. But I think the Kabaa or Al Masjid Al Nabawi, or even something related to Palestine would be amazing :)

Hey Wardah =) Congratulations on your son and your 100 posts. I hope you are doing well. I always admired you and your sisters talent for creating beautiful things. I would love to have henna designed on the egg something with a lotus flower or peacock but in the henna designed style. You are super creative so I would not want to hinder your creativity =)

lots of love

Would it be greedy of me to ask for another egg?? The first egg needs company on its shelf ;)

eeep I remember when your blog was a wee little baby :') lol. but I think either the Golden Gate Bridge or something similar to the golden egg on the top left would be nice.. or polka dots.

As for the egg, they are all very precious. If I were to win, I'd like the one that says, "To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world" inshaAllah. JazakAllah khair for setting up this giveaway! InshaAllah you continue to do great things!

CONGRATULATIONS!! lovely blog by the way. If i were to win the egg i would give it to my mom, so any saying or hadith about mothers. :)

Nadia Merchant said...

Assalamualaikum, mashaAllah love the eggs!
It's a tough decision, but I think maybe, if possible, I'd like an ayah of the Quran on my egg, a short, nice ayah :)

Mashallah this blog is amazing!!! It has basically all the ideas/crafts/recipes, and more of the images that I would pin on pinterest from different websites, but all in one place! I was introduced to your amazing blog by your lovely sister Hajerah, and I'm so glad I found out about it! Very good work mashallah! May Allah( swt) give you prosperity and success in your life. You inspire me in many ways!!

The ostrich eggs are BEAUTIFUL and it would be hard to describe which one I would want since each one is unique in its own way, I do however tend to like the more geometric Arabic calligraphy ( like the dark blue one), but honestly any original design from you would be awesome to display in my house!!

Oh also...

I liked your fb page
Pinned an ostrich egg picture on my pinterest
and I will subscribe to the blog ( I had it bookmarked before!)
And this is my comment :D

thank you!!!
