My very first giveaway!

As promised, albeit a little later than intended, may I present my very first giveaway! I’ve been dying to do a giveaway for a few months now, but decided to wait until a landmark, and give away some things to celebrate.

So, here is what is up for grabs;


I tried to find things with a Spring theme, in the colours at least. I am loving these pale blues and greens at the moment, and wanted to pread the love!

First up, and most important (in my humble opinion!) is the chocolate.


Three bars of gorgeous, creamy, organic Green and Black’s milk chocolate. Yum! (I don’t think I need to say any more about that)

Next up is this hand-made (by me, of course!) purse.


It was crocheted with a cotton yarn, so should hopefully hold its shape pretty well. It’s exactly the right size for my digital camera (which is fairly compact) or alternatively would be great for holding a couple of bank cards and some coins when you just want to put some in your jeans pocket and dash out of the house. It has no seams so (in theory!) nowhere to unravel and drop all of your money! Oh, and the button was handmade (not by me, unfortunately) and I bought it when I bought my kid mohair yarn in Penybont on holiday.

Third, I am offering this necklace.


I could have done a better job with the photography, and I apologise for that. It’s made up of glass and pearl-like beads, strung onto fine wire. Very delicate for wearing in the Spring and Summer.

Finally, a greetings card;

baby card

I don’t know about you, but whenever I hear of a new baby arriving, I never seem to have a card in the house ready to send off there and then. And if I do, it’s always a pink card with a baby boy having arrived, or a masculine navy blue, and the new arrival is a girl. So, I made this new baby card with that in mind. It is in shades of green (again, the picture’s not so great – sorry!) and you’ll see that on the picture of the baby, there’s a tag in which you can fill in the new baby’s name. It’s blank inside so you can add your own personalised message.

So that’s the bundle. I may or may not add other things before I post it off, depending on whether I find anything worthy of you all!

The Rules – If you want to enter, leave a comment on this post and you will get ONE chance to win this collection of goodies. If you want to have mutiple chances, Twitter it with a link to this post and get TWO extra entries. If you write a blog post about it (again, with a link to this post) you will receive FIVE extra entries.

I am willing to post internationally, so have a go, wherever in the world you live. The giveaway will close at 10pm, British Summer Time next Saturday, 2nd May. I will then pull a name out of a hat (or online random number generator, whichever seems like it would be more fun at the time!) and hope to announce the winner next Sunday, 3rd May, subject to other things not getting in the way! So you have plenty of time to spread the word and get more chances to win. Good luck!
