I have to struggle with myself not to start each post with 'Okay'- I don't start my talking sentences with 'Okay' don't see why I see the need to start my bloggy sentences that way.
Okay (just joking) I just found out I won a giveaway over at Cath's. I have won a few in my time- lots of generous bloggers around, and it always causes me to get rather excited (are you suggesting my life is boring...?). I have been planning a giveaway for a while but (in theory) was waiting for my birthday (which is in July) so I could have an 'it's my birthday and I am giving you a present' kind of post. That is not going to work because I am notoriously bad at surprises and waiting, and July is ages away.
So, in honour of spontaneity I have a present for one of you lovely bloggy friends (no, surprisingly, not my 72nd post, my birthday in a month or the sunny day we've just had!)
You'll notice I get one too! It's the first book from these girls. I have always admired their fabric (and wondered how it is that is always seems so nice and soft) and reckon they are pretty clever. The book has lots of projects and screen printing tips and tricks as well. Actually, this is what they say about it
Our first book, Prints Charming, guides you through the world of paper cut screen printing and also includes 40 wonderful projects for you to make. Each chapter comes with a copy right free motif for you to use when screen printing. You will be able to create fabric that you can use for the projects included in the book, or clothing or home wares or ...we can't wait to see. Beautifully photographed, this is more than just a instruction manual. Spiral bound to make for easy browsing and an envelope at the back of the book with pattern sheets, Prints Charming would make a great gift for you or a friend.
See, they think it's a great gift too 'for you or a friend'- I went with both!
Please enter if you think you would really love this book, because I would like it to go to a home where it will be well used and loved. My record number of comments is 12- so if history is a measure, that's pretty good odds you have of winning!
I haven't had a giveaway before so let me collect my thoughts and work out what I need to tell you.
- To enter- leave a comment on this post
- I will leave it open and draw a winner on Wednesday 9th June, about 10am so you might be able to have it by the long weekend, depending on where you live and when I get your contact details.
next Monday June 14th (to celebrate my day off work because apparently it's the Queens birthday)
- Please make sure I have a way of contacting you if you win.
- I am sorry I can't send this overseas. But still leave a comment if you live O/S and I will send you something nice if your number gets called.
Once I get the hang of the giveaway business I will hold another one down the track and I promise not to be exclusive for my next one!
I can't get italics off for some reason. Blah!
Just back to change some rules!
If you live overseas, please still comment if you would like a prize!, if your number comes up I will send you something else nice and draw another, local, winner for this book.I have changed it so I am drawing it Wednesday so I can post Thursday so the winner might have it by the long weekend.
