Celebration Giveaway

Giveaway banner

31st March – Tracing Rainbows is 4 years old

8th April – Easter Sunday

10th April – I am 57 years old TODAY

I am spending my birthday at Cornerstones – but going out for lunch with Bob, Liz, Jon and some of Jon’s family. That will be a real treat!

It seems like I have many reasons to celebrate and give thanks!


The giveaway parcel includes

  • the pink floral Morsbag I was given at the Green Light Festival. It is really lovely, but I have plenty of bags, and they are made to be given away. So I am passing it on
  • No Strange Land – an odd title, but it is a super book of poems, prayers and pictures by Eddie Askew.
  • some Olive Oil body lotion
  • one of my hand knitted dishcloths [made in beautifully soft pink cotton- you could probably use it as a facecloth if you wanted to!]
  • some pink and beige tags and embellishments from a Laura Ashley card making kit.

There will also be at least one surprise ‘personal’ gift, once I know who the winner is. I have kept this parcel relatively small and light, and I am happy to post abroad- so please don’t hesitate to enter just because you like outside the UK.

To be included in this giveaway, please make a comment on THIS POST before midnight, Sunday 15th April.
