Lady Luck

I seem to have an uncanny knack for winning lovely bloggy giveaways.... it's a pity my lady luck vibes don't seem to be able to be superimposed into some other critical areas of my life.

I was very lucky to win a fabulous giveaway over at Pivotal Expressions last week. You have to go and check out the draw. Beky's dog had to choose a schmacko to pick the winner...hilarious!

I received a really funky set of printed cards designed by Beky and a cool crafty bookmark.
Beky has an Etsy Shop and she's also going to be at the next Made'n'Thornbury market on September 5th.

Thanks Beky!

I also had a little bit of a craft shopping spree again last week... paypal is like having monopoly money. I bought one of Michelle's gorgeous Loving the Vintage caravan brooches, with the intention of giving it to my sister (there's an in joke about caravans with her and her hubby).... but now I don't want to actually give it away!

I also couldn't resist buying a Royal Sisters chocolate brown crocheted necklace for winter (there's something cosy about chocolate brown at this time of the year), and Michelle included a beautiful matching hairband as well, which will be perfect considering that I haven't been to the hairdresser since March (hello grey tips).

PS - Michelle is having an amazing giveaway including the cutest little pink wrist warmers that I've ever seen...

Ooooh lovely! I agree - Paypal is a little bit like monopoly money; it's dangerous when there are so many lovely things out there on teh interweb!

Lucky you. Great stuff.

Surely simply a matter of time before the Lady Luck giveaway vibe oozes into all other critical areas. Still determined you should purchase a lottery ticket - and maybe even a raffle ticket for one of those cars parked inside shopping centres!

PS. HOW DO THEY GET CARS INSIDE SHOPPING CENTRES IN THE FIRST PLACE?

PPS. Apologies for the tangent, have struggled inwardly with that concept for a while now.

Nice wins there Cam. I agree, chocolate brown is perfect Winter. I do love a bit of canary yellow to brighten things up too.
