Blogtoberfest Day 5, and another chance to win

Edited to say: GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED!

First up, then, Jess asked yesterday if blogging about my giveaway would earn an extra chance to win. The answer is yes! - _if_ you reply to this post, including a link to your blog post (the actual post please!) within your reply. And that applies to everyone lol, not just Jess!!

I am _shattered_ today. Long hard teaching day followed by after-school tuition, and I feel like I'm getting a cold :-( Undaunted though, I press on with Blogtoberfest..! Here's the photo of the day:

Now I know this is not a great photo (it's my bed by the way, in case you couldn't tell! A close-up of my pillow with the duvet turned back invitingly!) but it's a notable photo because I took it with my snazzy new mobile phone :-) I don't intend to be using it much as a camera (I have a pretty decent camera already and I usually have it with me) but I love all the other stuff it can do :-) Oh, and the pic's of my bed because I soooo plan to be heading there before too long...

But first, a quick craft to share:

It's an ATC of pink fibres - I started with a piece of cardstock cut to size, covered it all with double-sided tape, and arranged various pink fibres down it. At the top I cut them to fit the top edge of the card, but at the bottom I left lots of loose ends just hanging. If I ever sort my sewing machine out I may stitch some horizontal lines in pink or white for extra security and interest, but they feel pretty firmly stuck to be honest and I think it looks quite interesting already!

Night night.... (well maybe not quite yet, but soon.....!)

What's wrong with the machine chuck? Anything I can help with when I'm in your neck of the woods? x

Hi Mel,
You are doing well to continue with the creativity after LSNED - I'm sure the daily blogging really helps. Rest up and get a good nights sleep, I had a sinus infection for almost the entire time I was away for our holiday. I'm just finishing my LSNED final page so I hope to post in the completed book section very soon.
Amy.
