A guest spot and a giveaway!

You can find me over here today, chatting a bit about my creative journey!


But first – tell me - were your ears just burning? If yes – that might just be because I’ve been telling everyone how wonderful you are!!!



I’m having a little giveaway and everyone is welcome to enter. All you need to do is sign up to be a follower of my blog, or subscribe to my posts via email or RSS feed – then let me know that you have done so in your blog comment. If you already follow my blog, please join in the fun too! Just leave me a comment – I’m sure I’ll recognise you! Smile



I’m giving away this gorgeous book by Pam and Nicky Lintott. I thought it might give some great ideas for using up that ‘stash’!!


Stash giveaway book


Having said that, I’d also like to add to your stash with this sweet charm pack:


Hullabaloo


I love this fabric range by Urban Chicks – hope you do too?!



Please leave one comment per person, only – to make it easier for me to use the random generator! The second of any mistake entries will be politely deleted to keep it all fair.



I will draw the winner next week on Thursday 14th July at 8pm Melbourne time.


THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED – WINNER ANNOUNCED SOON!


Good Luck!!!


Back soon with some show & tell! Hugs!! Vikki xo

Hi Vicki,
I am now a follower and loce yor blog. I had tears when I saw the post and photos of the teacups. My mother in law always used to have me choose teacups when I visited her for tea. She had quite a collection and started me on a collection as well. When she passed away several years ago the one thing I wanted was her favorite china teacup cup. I think of her so often. Thanks for the lovely memories.
cheers
