Valentines Giveaway!

Yes, you read that title correctly! There's so much love being shown around blogland at the moment, I just had to join in with a giveaway of my own! There will be 3 prize winners* and each person will get to pick a heart from my Valentines tree!(First in best dressed, if your heart has already been chosen by 1st (or second) prize winner, you'll have to pick another.)

Prize number 1 -This handmade (by me) Queen of Hearts valentines bracelet with custom built matchbox holder!

Prize number 2 -
This one of a kind handmade (by me!) brooch with jewel embellishment.

Prize number 3 -Last but not least, this gorgeous little notebook (not made by me) fit for writing all your crafty ideas and needs into.
  • If you would like to win one of my prizes (I will throw into each prize some extra carfty goodness) then all you have to do is leave a comment! Let me know where you're from and what kind of crafts you enjoy the most! It's that easy! Make sure you either leave an e-mail address or that I can link back to you in case you win!
  • If you'd like another 2 entries to be in the running, then all you have to do is become a follower. If you already are (I love each and every one of you!) then let me know in a seperate comment!
  • I will pick the winners randomly on 20th Feb (was going to be Valentines Day itself, but that only gives everyone a few days to enter, so I've extended the time period!) and let the lucky people know on the same day! If I cannot contact you somehow (or you don't reply within a week) then I will have to choose another winner, so make sure your links are working and your e-mail is typed correctly!
  • Have fun, and don't hesitate to spread the word! (I might even throw your name in the hat a couple extra times if you do!)
*Terms and conditions apply. See above for details.

New Bolster Cover

Remember this?
I finally made it into something!My old bolster pillow needed a new cover, and this was perfect for it! Plus, the colours of the material I used compliment the colours of my other pillows. I didn't intend this, and only realized it when I put the bolster there to photograph!All sewn by hand, I've never made a pillow cover like this before, so am very pleased with the way it's turned out. Just one more embroidery to use up now!Also, Look at the wonderful package that arrived in my mailbox the other day!Thank you Robyn, I love the fabric!!
