Done and dusted :o)

Before I tell you what is done and dusted, I’ll show you what I made today…
I still had a little bit of “Oh Cherry Oh” left in my stash, so I made one more ‘Dear Diary’. In this one I put an A5 sketch book and a notebook so that if I have any bright ideas when I’m out and about I can draw it and also scribble some notes if I want to. I think I should go out, just so’s I can test it ;o).
So I bet you’ve now guess what’s done and dusted???? Yep, the “Dear Diary” pattern is written and printed WOOHOO!!!January 2012 100 There’s always a big sigh of relief from me when that part is done … ;o).
So of course you know what that means don’t you???

A GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!
Edit:  this giveaway has now been drawn :o)

So if you'd like to win a pattern for "Dear Diary", there are no fancy rules … just leave a comment on this post (just the one please) and I’ll pick 3 winners next Thursday 26th – that’s AUSTRALIA DAY here in Oz :o).
Good luck everyone!!!

Hopefully, if "my number is up" you can find a nice carrier pidgeon to bring that lovely pattern to the States ;0) I'm wondering if it could be adapted to make a portfolio for my Bible (in the Diary spot) - that would be so nice to have a notebook handy along with it! :0)

I would love to win. I've really been thinking about keeping a diary of my own, but then there are so many kinds of diaries I would like to keep. I'd love to make one of recipies for my girls to have. I need one next to me for my bright ideas because I always forget them..they dim quickly LOL. Then there are so many more.. I just am too cheap to buy the pretty expensive ones at the stationery store.

Adorable!! I'm trying not to spend so much time on the computer, but that always leaves me a day late (and a dollar short) when it comes to awesome give-aways like this one. I'm commenter #65.....well, you just never know, do you? I had a give-away last year and #1 was drawn. I'm being very choosey about which give-aways I enter, but this one would be lots of fun to win and make! Thanks for the opportunity. ~karen
