My Three Year Giveaway .....

Happy Saturday to you my friends

I'm not normally around here at the weekends
but today is a bit special
Today is my three year blogging anniversary!

I really can't believe that it was three years ago today
when I tentatively wrote my very first blog post 
I nearly hyperventilated when I hit 'publish'
but here I am three years on
and loving it
Blogging has utterly enriched my life
and I am so glad that I managed to muster up the courage that day
I have made so many wonderful, caring and inspirational new friends
aka ..... YOU
I feel very lucky indeed

So as a thank you to you for being so incredible
here's a little giveaway from me

It's one of my new 'make a wish!' mini canvases
(these are not even in my shops yet :o)
they're just like my new baby mini canvases
except they send out a little wish making magic
made from linen and beautiful Liberty of London fabrics

I'll be making one of these to go in my shiny new kitchen one day soon
(it feels a whole world away at the moment, if only you could see the mess right now!)
it will remind me to make a happy wish everyday
and to be thankful for all that I have

You can choose your favourite colour ~

Bright Pink
Blue Violet
Green Turquoise
Pale Pink

(please ignore the names and dates on the canvases below, its just the colour that you'll be choosing)

I've even added a some fairy dust to up the magic!

If you'd like to win a 'wish making' mini canvas
here's what you have to do 

♥  For one entry  ♥ 
Just leave me a comment on this post telling me which colour
 you'd like if you are my winner ..... Simples.

♥ For a second entry ♥
It would be really wonderful if you could share my giveaway
perhaps on your blog or facebook page or any other way 
(there are so many now!) 
and then just leave me a separate comment on this post
telling me you have done so
(and I will send you a BIG kiss and a hug for doing that)

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


Wishing you a fantabulous weekend!

Back soon

BIG love
x Jooles x
