A thank you giveaway



I LOVE having my own business
for one thing it makes me feel like a grown up (don't ask)
I feel so lucky, sometimes overwhelmingly so
I wake up and look forward (mostly) to a day filled with creating pretty things




I don't have to travel
go to meetings
 I don't even have to wear shoes
I can sing along to my favourite tunes
 have a sneaky snack whenever I like
 pop a wash on
occasionally ditch the bra (bliss!)
 nip out into the garden to pick a few blooms
 watch iplayer
 lay on the floor and do my back stretches whenever I need de~kinking
.....

I play with the prettiest fabrics and trims to my hearts content
sometimes I work long hours 
but it never seems like hard work to me
I put my heart and soul into Sew Sweet Violet
I AM Sew Sweet Violet.

So with that said
I'd like to thank you for allowing me to do what I love the most
for all of your support, encouragement and orders
I wouldn't be here with out you, that's for sure




So to thank you suitably, I thought a giveaway would be in order
and here's what I'm giving away




One of my advent calendar buntings 
made with beautiful Tilda fabrics
in reds and pinks with roses and birds ..... my favourite in fact
I have made it in two sections ~
 numbers 1 - 12 on one strand
numbers 13 - 24 on the other





So if you'd like to be in with a chance
here's what you have to do 


♥  For one entry  ♥ 
Just leave me a comment on this post
Simples.


 For a second entry 
kindly mention this giveaway on your blog or facebook page with a link 
and then just leave me a separate comment 
on this post, telling me you have done so


 The giveaway will be open for one week
 until Tuesday 29th October
I will post anywhere in the whole wide world

GOOD LUCK!



UPDATE ..... This giveaway is now closed
Thank you to all who entered

If you just can't wait that long
you can find my advent calendar buntings here and here


Sweet B says thank you

Now, I have a date with a certain Mr Percy Pecker!

BIG love
x Jooles x

  27. I'm fairly new to your blog, and don't always comment, but I read every post. I love how you've found such joy in your daily routine. And of course, your Advent calender is beyond charming.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ooh! Please count me in too Jooles. I will give you a mention on my blog next time I do a post (probably the weekend though!). XX

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is a really generous giveaway Jooles! Count me in :-) I just blogged so when I next write I'll share

    I sort of get what you mean although I have a "proper" and boring job! Even though what you do is far scarier having to be disciplined, get down to some hard graft and make things, and be your own boss, it must be far more rewarding. Maybe one day down the line I'll have your courage!
