A post about Giveaways

* Giveaway now Closed *

Thank you all so much with your comments on my last post about my little stall. It's most appreciated.

Well this little post is about giveaways. As I mentioned before I was having a giveaway for everyone that had participated in my Just Because Your Lovely swap. Packages are being sent out and some have already received :) I hope to post photos sometime.

This is what I was giving away. I love Compendium and their journals are some of my favourites.

Anyway, I put all the names in a little jar and have pulled out the winner. 

This particular journal has quotes on every page. Good for inspiration.

The jar of names.

And the winner is Diana of Onecraftyfox!
I will be sending out the journal very soon!

Anyway, this is my giveaway for everyone else. I was supposed to post this ages ago when I first reached 200 followers. So this is what I'm giving away...

It's a gratitude journal and pen from Kikki.K (another shop I love).

This is an idea of what's inside the journal. It has ideas and each day you can list what you are grateful for. I think all these giveaways have a common theme :)

I'm also adding in some mini notecards and some earrings that I've made to celebrate the reopening of my Etsy shop.

2. a crazy cat that is now eating the cover of a magazine I just bought
3. my family that makes me who I am every day

Three things I'm grateful for right now:

2. Our comfy home in Canada (I loved London, but it's so good to be back home)
3. My new teaching position! I've gone from a bit of library/a lot of Gr.6 science to a lot of library and a whole day each week teaching Grade 1!!! Hurrah!

Oh, and one more thing? Blog friends. They really are great!
