Pay It Forward

A little while ago I was lucky enough to be drawn as the winner on Kate's Blog Signed With An Owl.
You can read the post about it here.

And here are the amazing things that Kate spoiled me with:
** The Mug Rug

** The Candle Holder (plus additional tea lights)

** The Perpetual Calendar

Aren't those great? I am such a lucky girl to have been drawn as a winner and I am very thankful to Kate for sending international.
The parcel itself could probably tell a story because it took TWO months to get to me. The U.S. postal service was perfect. It left NY on 26 January and arrived in my LOCAL depot on 31 January. This is the usual time frame for US - UK parcels. But the lazy postmen just sat on for a couple of months...crazy! Especially when you think that I called the depot and asked if they have a parcel there sitting for me.

But anyway, I never gave up on the parcel and knew eventually it would wing its way to me - both Kate and I were relieved when the day finally came :)
Thank you again Kate, for your generosity!

Now it is my turn to host a giveaway and being the lazy sod I am, I have copied the rules straight from Kate's post here

The rules of this giveaway are that I now have 365 days in which to find three bloggers who would like a handmade gift from me and are prepared to do the same.

It's so simple.

Here's how you can enter: 

1: Be a follower of this blog somehow and leave a comment. 
(entries accepted from all corners of the globe and you don't have to have your own blog to enter, either)
You can gain an additional entry into the draw by:
2: Posting a link on your blog or website about this giveaway, linking directly back to this post.
3: Adding the giveaway button to your sidebar and linking to this post. 

If you do any of the extras above, then make sure you comment to let me know as you want your extra entries in the virtual hat, right?
I will close this giveaway on 25 April 2012  so make sure you get those comments in and spread the word :)


  1. Wow, two months? That's crazy! So glad you finally got your new goodies.

  2. Thanks for the incentive to create a new meme for my blog. I am wondering though if I set it up properly, could you visit and critique? Pay It Forward posted here: http://knittinginbeantown.blogspot.com
