Birthday contest!

Birthday contest!

Every year I promise myself I’m going to run a contest either for my birthday or my blog’s anniversary and I never do!  Well, IN YOUR FACE PREVIOUS YEAR ME!

The Rules are pretty simple; if you would like to be in with a chance of winning the items lovingly photographed below, leave a comment on this post (and this post only. No emails, Plurk or Twitter messages will count other than those specified below). That’s it!  You can be funny, serious, monosyllabic, just let me know you’re here.

The prizes: Rowan Calmer Collection and a small project bag made by my (fair) hand

The bag is a little less blood-red than it appears on my monitor – more of a warm burgundy kind of colour.

Want to increase your chances of winning? Here’s how.

  • Post a link to THIS POST in a post on your own blog and you gain an extra entry. (Your blog must show up in my trackback/ping stats to count)
  • Re-Tweet my announcement from Twitter and you gain an extra entry.
  • Announce it on Plurk (and send me a PM there to let me know you’ve done it because there is no ear-burn over there) and you gain an extra entry.
  • EDIT: Share this post on Facebook (if I’m a friend of yours I’ll see it,  but if not send me a print-screen image) and you can gain an extra entry.

The contest will run for 7 (seven) days from when this post is published (i.e. 15th of January at 13:00 GMT). After that time comments will close and no further entries will be accepted.

I will pick a winner using the numbers next to the comments on this post and the number generator at

I will send anywhere in the world.

Good luck and ready … set … GO! 😀
