20 crafty makes...a giveaway...

I feel very honoured and privileged to have been part of this great project. 
Katie, Natalie and Alex, 3 wonderfully talented and generous crafters organised this little makey book in aid of The Stroke Association.







They have produced a really fab little book of 20 great projects by some fab crafters, all in aid of The Stroke Association which campaigns for improvements in care; supports people to make the best recovery they can and funds research to come up with new treatments and ways of preventing strokes.
Every one of the projects is very different from the next. The girls really have produced something a little special and it has been so beautifully put together too. The photography and layout it just great.


Being a lover of printing I was drawn to Camilla's lino-print wrapping paper. How cute does her Reinbin look? (reinbin?? you'll have to read it to find out what!)


I'm itching to try and learn to crochet, so seeing April's project made my heart skip a little beat. I'm definitely ear-marking that for some christmas holiday crafting.



Oh and there's me! You could be forgiven for thinking I am wearing lipstick there! I never wear lipstick - much to my mother's horror - so I'm not sure what that's all about!


I bought several copies for this worthwhile cause; a couple of copies for friends for christmas presents (and one for me as well of course) but that leaves 2 copies up for grabs for you my lovely readers. If you would like the chance of winning one, along with one of my makes of my project, just leave me a comment to let me know. 
In the meantime if you would like to buy more copies of the book you can go right here. They certainly make a great little stocking filler.

Draw open to one and all but just one entry only please. I'm away with fairs this weekend...sounds a little like running away with the circus - either that or away with the fairies - but nothing much new there then!...so I'll draw 2 winners when I'm back this time next week.

Good luck and thanks for supporting this wonderful cause. x

What a great idea, I aways get the Stroke Association raffle tickets, but I love the idea of buying these books instead.
They were a massive support to our family when my nan had a devastating stroke.

This craft book really struck a chord with me as my father suffered a stroke and sadly died. You must feel extremely privileged to have been asked to be a part of such a fantastic project. I'm off to buy some copies for friends. x
