Countdown to Christmas: Giveaway

Thanks to the lovely people at ICHF events I have 2 tickets for the Crafts for Christmas Show in Birmingham to share with you.

This fabulous show runs from 8 – 11 November 2012 at the NEC Birmingham.  I love these shows, so much inspiration and a chance to see all the latest gadgets and tools essential for us crafty types! This year, you also get entry to the Festive Food and Drink Show, Hobbycrafts and Art Materials Live – you can see why this event is already on my calendar – how could I miss it!

If  you would like to be in with a chance to win 2 free tickets, just leave a comment on this post (everyone who leaves a comment will be entered). If you aren’t lucky enough to win tickets, you can book in advance for £9 via the website, where you’ll also find details of show exhibitors and loads of inspiration to kick start you Christmas preparations. Well worth the investment for a great day out.

Good luck, and happy crafting.

Entries  will be closed on 21st September and the winner announced on the 22nd. Comments on facebook or twitter won’t be counted – but if you retweet this post or share it on your facebook page after you’ve left a comment  I’ll enter you twice!

  • Adorable twitchy nose, cute little feet - but don't be fooled - this cheeky fella has eaten every single pea I planted in the greenhouse - no wonder his coat looks so glossy!
#girlgardener #ediblegarden #organicgardener #permaculture #forestgarden #growyourownfood  #slowliving One of the most  precious gifts you'll get in life is a best frend. Flowers from the garden - even in January! Last year I set myself a goal, to have flowers from the garden every week of the year. January it seems is easy - winter flowering clematis and viburnum doing a great job of cheering up the utility room today! Gardens are about feeding the soul, not just food for the table.
#cuttinggarden #flowergarden #permaculture #forestgarden #girlgardener #makingwinter #winterstories Last Saturday morning, Allonby. Wish every weekend could start with a walk on the beach, the winter light is so beautiful! 
Today I shall mostly be blocking crochet swatches, baking bread (my "signature" spelt  sourdough) & trying to book an Easter holiday! Whatever you have planned, be happy my Instagram friends xxx
#slowliving #winterstories #notjustlakes #morningslikethese #seekthesimplicity In the greenhouse, in the dark - clearing up and making room for this year's veg :So good to be getting dirt under my fingernails!
#girlgardener #growyourownfood  #organicgardener #ediblegarden #permaculture #forestgarden Hellebores, I love their delicate flowers and "barely there" shades of pink and couldn't resist bringing a few into the house today.  I'm slowly dealing with the pile of work on my desk, answering emails and doing one task at a time! 
Living with chronic illness is challenging and frustrating, but  slowing down and make the most of each day is a lesson I needed to learn!
