Free weekend give-away

Good Evening Wonderful Readers

Here are my free offerings and here's what you have to do if you'd like to be in the draw:

1. Be a member of my blog
2. Click on at least one of the ads on my page (we only get tiny amounts per click but it will add up and help pay the postage.... and I am happy to do the same for you).
3. Leave me a comment at the end of this post saying you'd like to be in the draw and telling me what's good about my blog and what I could improve.

Thank you for your participation!

First of all, a lovely felt heart decoration or pin cushion - use it as you wish.

                                    Second, a press for making imprints on toast.... could be fun

A piece of toast for a special person that says "I love you" - what could be nicer?

Lastly, some pretty ribbons for you to use as you like; sewing, crafting, scrap-booking.....

P.S. I have some pink ones all ready for another weekend give-away.

  6. I like to read each day because on my low days it keeps me afloat xx
    I'd love to win anything at all - the heart would have pride of place in my hallway to welcome every guest. the toast cutter would be used for Man Wonderful's Sunday morning breakfasts, the ribbons would be used to make cards for birthdays, or for attaching to scrunchies for my hair!

    Keep on blogging x
