A Bespoke Giveaway


Have you heard about *bespoke* Magazine?

It's a sweet little full-colour Australian print zine which is also available in digital download form.
*bespoke* is published by Jessica Van Den from Epheriell Designs.
I bought myself a copy of Issue 1, and will also be buying myself a copy of Issue 2 (especially with that beautiful cover)!
Issue 2 of *bespoke* features a huge array of Aussie and international crafty types, and has articles including:


  • Vintage crafts - rag ruggin'
  • How to find your vintage era
  • A tutorial on how to carve a sweet birdie stamp
  • The stories of 3 women who gave up corporate careers to launch thriving creative businesses
  • Thrive - an interview with a crafty lady making a full-time living from her upcycled kimono jewellery
*bespoke* is written totally by the community, for the community and is always on the lookout for submissions from artists, photographers, handmade and vintage business owners etc.


The good news is that Jess has very generously donated two copies for me to give away on the blog. All you need to do is leave a comment. Please make sure that your email address is enabled within your blogger id so that I can get in contact if you win.

I will draw a winner using the random number generator at 8PM Thursday 17th March..

Good Luck!

Ooh, awesome! I'd love to win a copy. ;D Thanks for the giveaway!

(And ... I hope my e-mail addy is enabled. The option to e-mail me when there are new responses is available, which makes me think it is enabled. But if it's not, you can reach me at @starncrossbones on Twitter, too. :D)
