International New Year giveaway

Anyone who follows me on facebook will know I've been promising a giveaway once I reached 200 followers on my blog (to join the 100+ facebook likers). Well, it's happened! A very big welcome to all my new followers and best wishes for 2013.

So here's what I'm giving away:

A bright pincushion

A little owl holder

Some lovely French toiletries/perfume samples (from L'Occitane en Provence, Nuxe, Givenchy and Marionneaud)

And a silk tissue pouch (with tissues)

I'm also including a rattle insert, because I know these are difficult to find in some parts of the world. Maybe it will inspire you to crochet a teddy rattle :)

The giveaway is open to all my followers on this blog and on facebook and I am prepared to mail the gifts anywhere in the world. To join, just leave a comment below telling me if you're a follower on here, on facebook, or both. If you're a new follower, please tell me that too! And just to make it a bit more interesting, please let us know what it is you most hope for in 2013. For me, it is to remain healthy. And to keep on crocheting!

The giveaway is open until 15th January. On that date I shall name the winner (whose name will be drawn out of a hat) and the winner will have until 20th January to send me their contact details. In the absence of a reply, another draw will take place, giving the new winner a further five days to contact me. And so on...

Good luck!
