G is For ...


The meaning of Christmas depends on who you talk to.

For many its a religious celebration of the birth of Jesus ... For others it about spending time with the ones you love and being thankful for them.

For me its a time to show the ones you love and care for, just how much they mean to you.

Now i used to be a BIG fan of Christmas but I've lost my festive mojo of late. I don't know why but i just feel a sort of melancholy about the whole Christmas thing.

Since Agent M is getting older, I'm wanting to enjoy the magical time while it's still all dreams of sugar plums and the excitement of Santa.
I'm in search of my Christmas spirit and I'm starting here!

That's why G is For Giveaway

I love my little blog and i am grateful for the people who come visit and share in my comings and goings. Who give advice on different ideas and makes or who simply just swing by to say hey :)

So to honor all you lovely peeps, I'm going to run a Christmas giveaway.

Ive been getting into knitting of recent and found a lovely book to try. It's perfect for the cold weather we've been having. So perfect in fact, i bought one just for you guys.


In the book there are 35 had designs that you can make yourself, from tiny hats for babies to funky adult hats. Suitable for beginners right up to the advanced knitters amongst us.

The synopsis
By combining simple knitting techniques with soft and colourful yarns, Fiona Goble has created a fantastic collection of 35 animal hats, ranging from cute and cuddly to wild and woolly. Choose from hats for tiny babies such as Buzzy Bee, Tweet the Robin or Rudy the Rabbit, or make something to keep bigger kids cosy, from Blizzard the Reindeer (complete with bright red nose) to Otto the Octopus. Most of the hats can be made in a range of sizes and many of them come with matching accessories, such as boot toppers, wrist warmers and baby bootees. Each hat has easy-to-follow instructions and uses the simplest of stitches, with clear step-by-step illustrations and photographs to help with the all-important features, making this ideal for beginner knitters as well as more experienced ones. With essential yarn information as well as a helpful techniques section, you'll be ready to start knitting gorgeous animal hats in no time.

Since I'm trying out home made this year i thought it would be the perfect way to make a personalised gift that's useful in this miserable weather and wont break the bank in the process :)

And since its the time for giving, not only will you receive this lovely book but I'll be sending along a lovely little Christmas gift just for you too ... See, I'm trying to grow my heart a-la-Grinch. The more people that enter, the bigger the gift since you guys have spread such love back to me :)

The entering is really simple ... Just follow the prompts on the form below.
  • Open Internationally
  • Will close at MIDNIGHT on 12th DECEMBER (GMT)
