And The Winner Is…


I’m just about to draw the winner of my blog birthday prize giveaway using a random number generator.

And the winner is…

Number 14!

Congratulations to Sandy of Craftsnotherstuff!  I’ll be sending you a parcel of goodies just as soon as I work out where on earth you live!


Thank you to everyone who participated in this birthday celebration.  I would have loved to give you all prizes, but, sadly, I just don’t have that many stamps…

    I am so new to this kind of thing…but finally figured out how to leave a comment (duh,,,so simple…just leave a comment on the post…) and thanks for the honor of winning these beautiful handmade items here. I never win anything….so to my surprise…the first day I join this site and to win such goodies….how awesome….I love crochet and so these will be such a blessing. I will take pictures and share when I get them and have them prominently displayed.. All of this blogging is also new to this 68 year old mother, grand mother and great grand mother…..but we try to keep up…I have sent my address in an email…so let me know if you do not get it….I will be happy to pay for shipping costs also…I will have to have a give away on my blog also in the next few weeks….so this will be my way of passing it on….of course I don’t mean the items you send me.:) I will be greedy with those and send a few of my own makings….what a wonderful idea and gesture for you to do this…so thanks…you have made my week….heck….you have made my year…

      Thank you, Sandy, your gratitude gives me such joy! I was worried people might think the prize a little silly and, well, lame! Of course, you don’t have to worry about shipping costs! That’s part of the prize! I had the cost of shipping in mind when I put the prize together – it’s all pretty compact and light weight so it shouldn’t put me out of pocket too much. Plus there’s something very exciting about sending a parcel of handmade things to the other side of the world. It makes my humble blog feel so international! This has been a great birthday party all round!

      They’re not too hard to make – there’s an excellent tutorial for them over at

      The year before last I made a whole bunch of them to give to the kids’ teachers as gifts. Before I gave them away, I tried putting them all over the Christmas tree to see what it looked like. The effect of the white snowflakes against the dark green of the pine tree was really lovely. One day I’d love to have a tree covered in pretty handmade ornaments. For now, I’ll have to content myself with a tree covered with tinsel as high as my children can reach!

    Oh to my surprise guess what I found in my mail…..these lovely presents….Thanks you so much…I do not know how to post a picture here so will post one on my blog and invite everyone to come on over and share a cup of tea….or here in the USA a cup of coffee or soda…I put all of the little crocheted items on my dolls Christmas tree…we are all enjoying it as I am not putting a big tree up this year…some of my friends saw the items and said what a sweet thing for you to do and to give such lovely items to someone so far away…I can’t wait to try out the soap….maybe it can do something for this old ladies skin…thanks for the little treats also….I can now say I ate from Australia…thank you again and wishing you and yours the Merriest Christmas!!!!

      Hurrah! I will be sure to link to your post on my blog! I’m so glad the parcel made it to you safely. Pippi’s soaps are a treat for the skin – I recently bought myself another one as well as a few to give to teachers as presents. Thanks so much for letting me know the parcel arrived – I was biting my nails just a little bit!
