Giveaway # 1 - Shades of Lilac

After doing the pink bobbin - did I really just say PINK????
My friend said I should do lilac next (her favourite colour)
Think I hate lilac even more than pink so said no way would that happen

So here we have two tags in shades of lilac - go figure!
I thought I'd make her "something" and send it to her in Australia once this very contagious period is over

Whilst working on it I mixed up too much lilac paste and didn't want to waste it so thought I'd just go ahead and make a second tag with no real idea in mind what to do with it

Now ideas at 3am always seem to be good ideas and I thought I would offer it as a giveaway on FB
I have done a few before and they seem to have gone down well 

So then I thought I might expand it to last the duration of this simply horrible time for everyone
My only hope being to send a little love & smiles & good thoughts out at a time when we are all feeling a little scared & unsure & are struggling
& to keep myself motivated & at least producing SOMETHING each week

I plan on starting with something each week for the next twelve weeks but will expand it further until such time as things are a little more normal for us all

Of course then doubts set in and I figured it's maybe not such a good idea after all but the two people I told of my idea said to just go for it
so I am!

I shall do the giveaway each Friday and draw any names from a hat on the Tuesday
BUT will not be posting anything out until a bit further down the line when it is more safe to do so - we are confined to the house due to Phil's COPD and I really am not prepared to ask any of the nephews to go to a post office right now ... I do not want them exposed any more than is vital and certainly not to post stuff for me ... am sure everyone will understand

So, probably the final time I will adapt Finnabair's heart design (these ones are quite dinky) and almost quite definitely the last time I will ever do lilac!

  1. Lovely tags, Debbie...even if they are lilac! You are so right: keeping everyone safe is important always but particularly at this time x
