And The Winner Is....Me!!

Little did I know this morning, when I woke up blurry eyed and groggy, that today would prove to be a very lucky day.

First off I opened up my email to find that I'd won this Habitat lapu lapu chopstick set in a giveaway hosted by Bright.Bazaar.

How cute are those fish?? I'm going to have fun learning how to use them. The only time I've used chopsticks is when attempting (and failing miserably) to knit a thong made from strawberry laces as a joke valentine's day prezzie for BF. Turned out disastrously but here's the pattern in case anyone else wants to try their hand. The trick is to use one continual lace instead of trying to tie them all together like I did.

Anyhoo..... moving on from edible underwear.... I got a monthly 02 treats txt and dandered over to the website to hook my duck and win my prize. Usually I get useless prizes like free weekend txts which I already get with my sim card anyway. But today I won 50 free photo prints with Snapfish. They also have a 20 free print introductory offer going at the moment so I get 70 free prints in all. Extremely hand as I've been going on and on at BF for ages that we need to print some of the hundreds of photos we've taken since changing from film to digital.

Then whilst taking a break from uploading photos I thought I'd have a look at what was going on over on twitter when I get a tweet from Edwina Simone saying that I'd won her giveaway too!

Look at her beautiful teapot!! And have a look at the lovely goodies that I've won:

I have been in desperate need of a needle book for ages, as I said in my giveaway entry, all of my pins and needles are kept in tins but always open in the bottom of a bag and I spend ages bloodying my fingers trying to fish them back out again. And the penguin is nothing less than adorable! And as for the teapot pendant - well I may have mentioned my teapot obsession here before so this is the perfect prezzie for me. Take a look at Edwina Simone's Shop too - several of her items are on my "if I had an endless pot of money" list.

I seem to have been extremely lucky with giveaways this year. So I thought that now would be an appropriate time to announce that I'm planning my own giveaway soon. I'm just waiting for my logo and graphics to be finalized, then I'll be launching the shop with a giveaway. Watch this space for more information!

Anyway my great mood hasn't managed to banish the cold that's been lurking around our house for a week and more, so I'm off to snuggle under a blanket with a hot cup of tea, a pair of scissors and a stack of felt. Bliss!


  1. Aww, that's such a nice post. Can't believe how lucky you've been today!!

  2. Hurray well done Nerys, I'll have to rub you the next time you're over, see if I can catch a bit of your good luck!


Thanks for reading! Looking forward to your comment.
