Christmas over, Sale Day Giveaway approaching

Christmas was just lovely this year. We went to Sarah and Chris (daughter and future son-in-law) for Christmas this year along with my parents, Mark's mum, Kelly (oldest daughter) with her husband Jimmy , my two favourite little people in the whole wide world, Ronnie and Millie and my son Alex.....12 of us in all for Christmas dinner....it was a bit of a squish but so worth it if you can get all your family together under one roof for a day.

Ronnie is 3 and Millie is just 20 months. They were so good all day. Millie managed to eat her whole body weight in food....I have no idea where she puts it....she really does have hollow legs.


This has to be my favourite picture taken over the whole of the Christmas holidays, Grandad reading Millie's new book to her...those kids just melt me to slush!!!

Okay....Christmas over....now to the giveaways. As you know, classes go on sale on Saturday 2nd January 2010 which also happens to be the start of our January sale and as a thank you gift for your continued support, I have put together 33 goody bags. I know what you are thinking....33....really strange number....well, there is a method to my madness. To qualify for one of these, the first thirty people in the shop to either book a class or spend over £25.00, will become the lucky owner of a goody bag. If you are unable to get to the shop, you still have a chance to win one by leaving a comment here on the blog. We will randomly pick three winners after the 2nd January and will be happy to mail them to you.
So it's time to wish you all a very Happy New Year and I hope to see you on the 2nd.
Stay warm, Lin

Your Christmas sounds lovely. How I would love to make it to your shop, but sadly it is too far away from me. The chance to win a goodie bag would be lovely though - so fingers very crossed!!

Great to see you had such a fantastic time and love the photo. The grandchildren do make Christmas so magical. Nothing can ever match the feeling! Happy New Year Linda, Sue and Paul x

If I could come, I would be there!!! But as it's a bit far for me to travel, I'll just add my comment and see what happens. In any case, even if I don't win a goodie bag, I know I have an order which will be in the mail soon!! HAPPY NEW YEAR and I'll be in touch very soon. Have been with the PIL and so have been TOTALLY out of touch recently.
Love to you all from me - Sally in France xx

I would love to get to one of your classes but being down in the south makes it difficult-still, with blogs and youtube videos we are able to try SO many different techniques. If my hubby stays still on the sofa long enough he'll be inked and distressed like everything else in the house! Happy 2010.

Jackie said...

Could you open a satellite shop further south?!! Can't be at the shop but would love to win a goody bag! Happy New year.

craftytrog said...

Wish I lived a bit nearer and could visit the shop!
Happy new year!

Thanks for the chance of winning a goodie bag - will be keeping everything crossed (even if people look at me strangely!!!! lol

Happy New Year to you all.

Hi Lin
I am not going to be able to be at the shop tomorrow but plan to give you a ring to try and get in the queue for booking! It's almost as bad as trying to get a GP's appointment!! Fingers crossed!
