Even $20 is still enough to get a necklace or a couple of brooches!

All you need to do to enter is pop over to my Felt shop and leave a comment below to let me know what item you would pick if you won. Make sure you leave an email address if you post as an anonymous friend.

Want to double your chances??? Just tweet about this giveaway - make sure you include @freedomnz in the tweet and a link back to this post.

Good luck and thanks for being wonderful!

Just listed

Just added to my Felt shop, these colourful necklaces (and more), and more necklaces and brooches coming throughout the week! These pendants now come on wonderfully elegant and simplistic neckwires (in black or silver), with easy to use screw clasps.

I'm a winner (again)

Now, you probably think I just sit here entering competitions on blogs all day long.... I promise I don't, but I do seem to win quite a few (I must have my Grandma's luck!).

These are my most recent winnings (above left) - wonderful Kozo Japanese Masking Tape (yay, finally a NZ store selling this!) (website here), and some lovely goodies from Songbird Designs (blog here, shop here).

On the right are some wonderful ideas of how to use the tape; Some sweet clips/pegs (found here) and wonderful wrapping (found here).

That photo was taken with my new digital camera (I wanted a wee one that would fit in my handbag, I still love my Panasonic DMC-FZ8!!!). It's a Sony DSC-W350, and takes awesome panaramic shots, so I'll have to try that out very soon!

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend! It's finally summery again after a few days of horrible weather, nice! I'll be back with a giveaway later this week.

Love this idea
