Just a quick post :o)
The nomination stage for the Craft Awards 2013 (Crafts Beautiful/PaperCrafter) are now live. I would be really honoured (and most grateful) if you would nominate me for Designer of the Year and Best Craft Blog.
All entries will be entered into the prize draw to win 2 year-long subscriptions to two craft magazines of your choice. You can choose from - Crafts Beautiful, PaperCrafter, Homemaker, Let's Knit, Let's Get Crafting, Sew or Make Jewellery.
You can nominate by going to www.crafts-beautiful.com/craftawards or there is a nomination form on page 51 of the August issue of Crafts Beautiful (open to UK residents aged 18 or over).
I appreciate that some of my followers/readers do not craft, and as there are some entries that have to be completed, I've compiled a list of products etc. that I use/have used, have heard excellent comments about or would highly recommend. Of course, if you know of any others, please feel free to nominate them :o)
