...her first ever Giveaway.

I've been dying to do a giveaway, but more often than not giveaways are for a landmark reason e.g. to celebrate X number of followers or a blog anniversary.  Well, I don't really have a landmark to celebrate as such, but I do so want to have one.

I came across the Sew Mama Sew May Giveaway Day and thought it was a great opportunity to have my own Giveaway just for the fun of it.

But what to give?  I had two days to make something, not a lot of time for me as I like to take my time on these things.  So I've had a good look around at what I do have and came up with the following:



A knitted hanging heart, that's so sunny and bright it reminds me of a lazy summer day.


A gorgeous handcrafted picture I got yesterday.  There's a label on the back that states "The art reproduction print has been sealed onto a hand cut Welsh slate and inlaid up to 30 coats of varnish."  It's made locally to me.  


A ribbon flower hair clip.  I've been spending my evenings making these for the Wee Man's school summer fete.  Perfect for a little girl or a lady with girlie tendencies.

A handmade fabric zipped coin purse with a sunny yellow button detail.  It's lined with a yellow polka dot fabric.

A baby food jar pin cushion.  I love making things with baby food jars.  They're so cute.  Anything in miniature is cute though and anything to do with babies are cute.  So this is doubly cute.

I've got so much crafty stuff that is shouting out to be used.  Unfortunately I have too much stuff and too little time, so hopefully the winner will be able to make good use of it.


Some multicoloured knitting yarn.  

Five gorgeous floral napkins.  I've used these for decoupage projects and they've always turned out really well. 

A 10m roll of  pink raffia lace.  Another of my crafty buys that made my heart skip.  But unfortunately I have not got a clue what I can make with it.  Hopefully the winner will have more luck and talent. 

So what do you need to do to win these goodies?

I'll keep it simple and ask you to simply add a comment to this post.  For an extra chance you can also follow me and add a comment saying you have done so.  

Keeping it simple for my simple brain.  

The closing date for entires is Wednesday 25th May and it's open to everyone. 

Good luck and go have a look see on Sew Mama Sew for loads more Giveaways.
