Blogtoberfest Day 2 - a giveaway!

Edited to say: GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED!

I promised a giveaway, and here it is! :-) All welcome, I'm quite happy to ship overseas. I've basically gathered together all kinds of supplies and the winner will receive:
  • A set of wooden alphabet stamps
  • An unmounted stamp of a cute little penguin
  • A selection of peel-offs
  • A selection of stickers (flat, bubble and dimensional embellishments)
  • Some rub-ons
  • Magic Motifs
  • Sticky tabs
  • Assorted embellishments, to include brads, eyelets, flowers, beads, buttons and ribbons
  • Assorted patterned paper (6x6 inches in size), including K&Company, DCWV and Basic Grey (50 sheets in total. Unless I miscounted!)
  • A handmade notebook (see the one I did for myself here; winner to choose repurposed pages or plain white paper according to preference; cover fabric may vary depending what I lay my hands on first!)
  • A surprise or two ;-)
Other than the notebook (which I haven't made yet) and the surprises ('cos if I showed them they wouldn't be a surprise, would they?!), all the goodies are pictured here:


Sooo.... How do you enter? Well, just leave a comment in reply to this post, and tell me one thing that you've learnt recently. That'll gain you one entry. For a bonus entry, become a follower and leave me a SEPARATE post to say that you've done so - or if you're already a follower, leave a SEPARATE post to tell me so! Also, keep checking back throughout October as I plan to let you know how to get bonus entries now and then too. I'll pick the winner randomly from all entries received.

The closing date is 31st October 2009. I will contact the winner as soon as possible after that, and allow them 7 days to reply - sadly if I don't hear from them in that time I will have to pick a new winner.

Good luck! :-)

Something I've learnt recently - How to do a 3 point turn!

At 28 I am finally learning to drive! That turn is HARD, but I was pleasantly suprised to learn that I am quite good at reversing. :)

Wow what a generous giveaway.
I have learnt recently that if I schedule my time I get more done instead of being so random.

Something I've learnt recently - zebras do not neigh like a horse but bark like a dog (or sometimes moo like a cow)! Had to YouTube it when my 3-yr old asked about it!!

Recently I learned to keep track of where my sewing machine's foot pedal has migrated... someone came into the sewing room to talk to me and accidentally stepped on it, causing the machine to begin sewing very fiercely.

I have learned the joy of finally finishing something. It's been a long time between knits!!!

Tanya said...

I have learnt to be much more patient and forgiving with my sewing projects- I have no idea where this has come from, I used to have a 'sulky' pile of unfinished items that needed fixing. I am loving it and hope it continues.

Rachel said...

I have learned that big cooking projects are good for my sanity and that I should have them more often!!

thanks so much for following my blog! your crafts are gorgeous, and this giveaway looks amazing! thanks for the consideration...

recently I've learned that I have far more (and not near as much) patience as I thought I had! lol I am caregiver to a mother with Alzheimer's disease and we've reached an all-time stressful high. I love her and will do all I can for her, but I've learned that I'm both a stronger and more vulnerable person that I thought...all of your best and worst features come out under stress. I just live each day with the goal of making it through better for it.

Claire said...

WOW! What a prize!!!
I have recently learnt that I need to stop letting procrastination get in the way of what I want to do. I just need to DO IT.
