GIVEAWAY, GIVEAWAY, GIVEAWAY........

Well thought I'd try and get your attention after yet another long absence. Work, work, work and no art makes Cindy a very bad blogger!! Well here it is at last, the January giveaway.

A few months ago my boss asked me to make her a book to have all the staff birthdays in (actually there are SO FEW staff now it wouldn't take a mensa like mind just to memorise the list) but she does like to give me little projects. It was about the time I had just been to Ally Pally where I saw a really nice birthday calendar made using the clip from the inside of an A4 folder (got plenty of those!). But then I remembered this, which was originally a photo holder which I bought from a 'reject' sale for 50p. It has been languishing in my box of 'things I'll do something with one day' for a couple of years. Anyhow I played around with various ideas and this was what I finally decided to do. But I then realised it was going to be far too elaborate for the office (five names) so it has become my giveaway for January. So in case that long winded explanation hasn't thrown any light on it, it is a sort of birthday book, but on a stand. The base was going to be even fancier but then I realised it would be hard to turn the pages. But don't you just love that fancy leafy swirl? It is my new Marianne die and I think it is just scrumptious!!


Anyhow, let's get to the point. If you have space on your desk for this (slightly) useful piece of altered art then leave a comment on this post before 10.00pm on Wednesday 26th January. Overseas players welcome, please feel free to link from your own blogs. I will have a very short window to post this to you after the closing date as I will not be at home for a few days so it may be delayed if I don't know the winner's address already. Just to say also that the February giveaway will in fact be taken over by ONE WORLD ONE HEART and I hope to have something (or even somethings) nice ready in time for that. Thanks for playing!!!!
