Giving Away in May

It’s been a little while since I last took part inΒ the global warmth & fuzziness that is the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day, but it’s back again…

I’m giving away a pair of handcrafted earrings. (Allergy proof sterling silver fixings, with Swarkovski beads.) These are just an example – I’ll make the same design afresh in whatever colour the winner chooses. In addition, there’s a bracelet made from semi-precious stone beads – so it’s a double giveaway.

To win, all you have to do is leave a comment by the end of May 20th. I’ll choose the winner at random and post the result the following day. (Please make sure you leave me some way of contacting you!)

Readers arriving here from Sew Mama Sew – welcome! I’m not a craft blogger generally, although I will post projects when I’m hit with inspiration, but have a tendancy to blog on an eclectic range of topics – lately there’s been rather a lot about the electionΒ [Britain had an historic election the other week, but I’m not entirely sure that the rest of the world cared about it all that much], there’s usually plenty of gym anecdotes and every so often I rave about shoes and handbags

Regular readers – feel free to enter too. You deserve some kind of gift for persisting with me!
