I love blogs and i love being in blogland. There are just so many talented, funny, kind, entertaining folks out there and sadly for me not enough time to read all their blogs as much as i’d like to. There are also special things like giveaways and competitions where super exciting craft goodies are offered for simply being a follower of that blog. Now i enter a lot of those and just a week ago I actually won one. It was courtesy of the very wonderful House of Bears blog. They have an annual Christmas giveaway and this year you had to guess how many bears were hidden in santa’s sack. (Rest assured that no bears were harmed in the process but a few probably got a bit bored sitting in there for weeks and may have eaten too much chocolate as a distraction).
The answer was eight and I was so thrilled to have guessed correctly. This is what i won
rubber stamps, lovely paper, stickers, a book of inspirational quotes and a gorgeous junk journal made by the Bears themselves. Oh and a chocolate bar which i’m sure a bunch of chocoholic bears must have struggled to part with.
Here is the journal in close up
and they also sent a beautiful handmade card.
I was very lucky and it really made 2014 begin for me with a smile.
So thank you bears for your kindness. If you haven’t read their blog please do so its full of fun, crafty goodness and inspawration. I’m off to have a play now.
