(Giveaway Now Closed)

Thank you to everyone for your lovely messages on my last post.  My Grandad is still with us (just) he is really fighting it, but we know it won't be for long : (. 

On a brighter note I have reached 20 followers : ) Thank you so much.  I still find it hard to believe that people are actually reading what I am writing.  Lord only knows why, all I seem to do is babble on about nothing really.  Still I appreciate all your support. 

I had said previously that once I reached 20 followers I would do my very own giveaway.  I had such joy when I received my parcel from Mr Postman, sent by Sue at Our New Life In The Country , it was so exciting opening it all up to see what was inside.

For that same reason I wanted to share the love and my gratitude for all your support.  I won't tell you exactly what is going to be sent, it definitely adds to the excitement when you don't know exactly what is being received.  All I will say is it will be craft related, that is the only clue you are getting from me.

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is be a follower of this blog and leave a comment on this post.  I will then draw a name from the pot to discover who my recipient will be.  Simple as that : ).  I will be closing the giveaway in a weeks time, so make sure you comment on this post by next Wednesday 23rd Feb.  Feel free to spread the word. 

Good Luck.

Love Gem xxx


  1. I understand how you must be feeling about your Grandad. I lost mine a year ago - it was a very upsetting time. He was my last grandparent too. It seems so strange not to have any grandparents alive now, seeing as they were such big parts of my life.

    Thank you for having a giveaway - i'd love a chance to win xx

  2. Hi Gem,
    It's really impressive how you can still look at positive things at a time like this. My thoughts are with you and your family.

    Take care,

  3. Huge hugs for the family. Good luck with the giveaway.

    Take care.


  4. I'm puzzled that I've missed both your previous posts. Can't understand why. Anyway, so sorry to hear that you and your family are going through a difficult time. Hugs from me too.

    I'd love to be entered in your giveaway and I love the idea of a mystery prize.

  5. Would love to enter. Hope your grandad is ok.
