A Drum Roll, a Winner and a New Week (Sort-Of) Resolution

Given my recent foray into the ‘drawing of a winner’ was a somewhat drawn out affair,* this time Random.org did the picking for the voodoo pincushion prize. Get the microscopes out, or just take it from me, the winner is...(still reckon it’s worth a drum roll)...



Number 9: Tinnie Girl!

“I often find myself scarred from a visit to the Body Shop and their over zealous sales approach. My ‘favourite’ experience was when I was in there shopping for a gift and the sales person asked me if I knew if the gift was for a male or a female. Doh, I wonder if I know who I'm buying the gift for? I told her I did know but didn't share the gender.”

Tinnie Girl, I suspect you have no less than seventeen pincushions.** And I feel the need to inform you that as delicious as inkjet fabric is, it probably isn’t the perfect choice for a pincushion (you really have to stab those pins in). While you are most welcome to stick with your custom-made (with relevant logo), crafty voodoo like this...



...you can instead opt to come over all zen-like and choose a set of ten (two of each), printed on gorgeously cottony paper, Critter Cards by Myrtle and Eunice.***





* To be honest, every idea I came up with, involved pins or darts and overstepped my (admittedly quite high) weirdy threshold.
** There’s even one on your blog header.
*** Have made a conscious decision to do more good than evil this week.

Ooh, congrats to Tinniegirl!! Go the cards- they're gorgeous (and maybe then I can steal that pincushion while Myrtle&Eunice isn't looking :-) )

I have seen the cards in real life and they are beautiful... not that Spotlight voodoo isn't beautiful, just in a different way.

As for "Have made a conscious decision to do more good than evil this week"... are you making a promise you can't keep???...!!!!

Congrats to tinnie girl and also to you Ms M & E, very lovely cards my dear. As for the whole pin thing, I do like good pin cushion and yours are super fabulous. Have I shown you my Jeff Kennett pin cushion? It's pretty cool and very well used, not to mention historic x ps remember when people used to say, "I've had a Kennett of a day?"t
