I’m so excited, because Cathe Holden, owner of the beautiful craft & design blog Just Something I Made, is hosting a little giveaway this week of some of the new products from my shop (the items at the bottom of this post). Her blog is so rich with creative ideas & beautiful things, Cathe is so talented & inspiring, I’m really honoured that she agreed to host my giveaway. She’s written such nice things about my work, I am feeling really overwhelmed! It’s been quite a day, with an endless flow of visitors to my site, lots of emails, new subscribers to my blog & newsletter, & all the wonderful comments from Cathe’s readers.
If you’d like to enter the giveaway, you just need to visit Cathe’s blog & leave a comment right here. The winners will be drawn on Friday the 9th of November.
You’re probably already aware of Just Something I Made, & visit regularly – why wouldn’t you? There’s so much to see there. I share a love of cigar boxes with Cathe & & am flabbergasted by her enormous collection, & have serious studio envy too! Cathe’s also written a book called Rosette Art, which is due for release in May 2013, & I think I’ll buy a copy because I’ve been trying to make some rosettes myself lately & all I can say is, I need help! Cathe also has lots of ingeniously inventive DIY projects on her blog, & one of my favourites is this gorgeous little cigar box bed. Don’t you just love the airmail envelope pillow & postage stamp quilt?
I’d like to say an enormous thank you to Cathe for her generosity, hello to all the new visitors to my blog & shop, & hello to all my old friends too! I couldn’t have asked for a better start for my new shop, I’m thrilled!
Lastly, my best friend Mark has reopened his Ebay store, where he sells really beautiful & quirky vintage photos. He has impeccable taste & always finds the most interesting things – you can visit him here.
