My Creative Space (& Giveaway!!)


....almost didn't happen today. On Monday night my camera went missing. All day yesterday I searched and sweated. I love my camera and feel quite weird without it. This morning I asked Rosie, again, if she had seen it. Ever so casually she revealed it had been 'dropped outside, next to the yellow climbing thing." And yes, there it was, in the wet grass. I should also mention here that we had over and inch of rain on Monday night. Hmmm. But all is good!! The camera is fine! Miracles do happen, it still works...happy me!!



Today is all about bunnies. I'm really enjoying making them and working with some new colours and colour combinations. Lovely friends Phillippa & Matilda have commissioned two bunnies for their twin nieces/cousins. Matilda has chosen the fabric, one in orange & blue and the other a purpley/grey. I can't wait to see their little orange and purple cardi's which Mum is working on as we speak.


Then there is this blue bunny, I am in love with this cardi. Both Blue Girl and this sweet Holly Hobbie bunny have been ordered as Christmas presents.



But wait...there's more!!

After 124 posts and with 124 lovely followers it's definitely time for my first giveaway. I can't believe it's taken me so long! I have had such a fun time so far in Blog Land and I love updating my own little blog with photo's and thoughts from my life. It's been so wonderful meeting people from all over the world, as well as closer to home, and getting a peek into other peoples lives. I am constantly amazed at the generosity and warmness of others and the creative, kind and funny people out there. So thank you for reading my ramblings and for all your sweet, interesting, thought provoking, inspiring, hilarious, and supportive comments. I really appreciate the time and care that people take, so again, thankyou so much sweeties!

Now....drumroll........I have two little alpaca bunnies to giveaway....



....this is Holly, she is so soft and is wearing a lovely moss green cardi.




....and this is Archie! (You may remember Archie's blue overalls.) He is quite a handsome fella but slightly bashful and needs a good cuddle.




If you would like to win one of these two bunnies then there are three ways to win!!

1. Please leave me a comment below and you will go into the draw.
2. If you follow me then you have two chances of winning! Please mention
that you follow me when you leave your comment.
3. Finally if you mention this giveaway (make sure you let me know) on your blog
and link to me then you have three chances!! Yay!
As a added bonus I also have a lovely, red Lazy Bones dress (bnwt!) to giveaway as well.


Have a look at their website, lthey have some lovely dresses and bedding too. The dress is size 'small' so won't suit everyone but it is so pretty and all cotton and would be perfect for Christmas Day. If you would like it please say so in your comment and it will go home with one of the bunnies.

I will draw out the winners sometime soon and I'm happy to post anywhere in the world.

So my creative space today is a very happy one. I can't wait to visit all the other creative spaces over here and see what everyone is up to. Hope your day is a happy one too xo

Looove Lazy Bones. Your camera is quite the survivor! Count me in on all counts. I was going to try to make a soft toy for my new nephew, but if someone more able in blogland helps me out before I make something disastrous, I'll stick to cushion covers for a little longer. And i was a follower even BEFORE i knew that I could win a gorgeous bunny. of course. :P

Nikki Cardigan said...

It's great that you still enjoy making the bunnies Beck. Your thoughts on Blog Land were lovely to read. Blog Land certainly is a nice place to be.

And because the camera is OK, I will admit to laughing that Rosie was involved. Ever since THAT haircut, I've got a soft spot for her!

Oh, and thanks for leaving the porch light on. xxxx

Hi Beck, Tilly and Philly here. Just wanted to say that we think you are top notch!!! We both think the bunnies should end up in other countries...they could be international ambassadors of love and peace!!
