Birdwatch, Update and a Giveaway...

Are you going to take part in this years Big Garden Birdwatch ?
This weekend 25-26 Jan
Spend 1 hour somewhere green and note what you see...
If you haven't registered already go here to join in the fun!


There is still time to join in with the February Creative Swap... a great opportunity to swap something you have made for something someone else has made....

My Little Swap Idea

- A Homemade Creative something(s) -  be it Knitting, Crochet, Printing, Sewing, Felting, Jewellery, homemade creams or lotions etc

Then a little treat too.... Some wool or fabric, chocolates, buttons.... etc

After all it's good to share our talents and we all deserve a treat!!

I do hope some of you may fancy it?

Deadline to draw pairs out on 1st February with the hope that the swapping will be completed by the end of that month... ish

I'll put any names in a hat and pull them out in pairs and let everyone know in a post...

Then you can get in touch and decide what you'd like to swap with your partner...

What do you think??

What would you be up for swapping?

I have 925 Silver Jewellery that I have made that I am open to swapping- a bangle, a ring  or maybe I could make a pair or earrings or a necklace for you...
Then I thought I could make up some personally tailored  Face Oil (organic base oils and essential oils) to help your face cope with the winter weather for a treat...

Do spread the word...

Now a Creative Give Away...

A set of four pompom makers - go pom pom crazy... 

Four gifts makes from Molly Makes last year

2 sets of 5 Bamboo Knitting Needles- great for knitting without seams... socks, hats, gloves etc.

And some surprise extras vintage fabric, buttons, wool and bits and bobs for you to play with...

I will add when I know who has won... so they will hopefully be nice surprises!!

I'm hoping this little giveaway might appeal to those who fancy having a go at something new or maybe have a child who is expressing creative urges that this might just meet...

Do leave a comment if you would like to join the Swap or enter the Giveaway..
I'll pick the winner on the 1st of Feb too.

And finally... I've got my first Snowdrops flowering in the garden!! 
Though they do seem to being eaten by little critters which seems a little unfair...

  3. Lovely photo of lady blackbird? We have a tame robin called scruffy, that comes when we call him, if we don't go out in the garden for a while he comes to the kitchen window, when we open the back door he comes and stands on the doormat. Put my name in the hat please, both my nieces are interested in making things. x

  4. Thanks... Scruffy sounds fab... I had a male black bird that used to come, sit on the fence and just stare at me through the kitchen window when he wanted some raisins, sadly I haven't seen him for a while. Yep your name has been put in too.. good luck! Cx


Thanks for popping by...
It is always lovely to receive a comment from you... smiles Cass x
