Day 8 of 12 Days of Christmas

Yesterday’s raffle for the RA calendar was the most popular yet. Thank you for all your entries everyone. I have just identified the winner, and here she is:



Congratulations! And so it looks as if it was kismet that tumblr referred you to this site 😉. I am delighted that a prize is going to a new reader and first-time commenter. Hehe, a great welcome, so to speak. Please let me know your address so I can pop the package in the post. You can e-mail me at guylty(at)photographer(dot)net.


And voilá, here we are on Day 8. After the success of the black pouch raffle two days ago, I decided to put another little pouch into the mix.

This one is slightly smaller at 11 x 18 cm, and it comes in the classy grey chaRActer fabric, so if you like Proctor and Ricky Deeming, Gary Fuller, Claude Monet and Who-the-hell-were-the-white-socks-for???, then comment away below to be in with a chance.


In other news… I am wondering whether I should get another calendar done. It seemed particularly popular. I might just have to check in my local store for the necessary material 😉.


To recap: To enter the raffle for the grey pouch, leave a comment on this post. The raffle is open for the next 23 hours and finishes at 11pm GMT tomorrow, December 21, 2017. The raffle is open to all, and the items will be sent anywhere in the world, at no P&P costs for you. Winner to be announced in Day 9 post of the 12 Days of Christmas 2017, tomorrow. 


Unrelated PS: You definitely should check the RAdvent CalendRA today. I think it might make you laugh… Click HERE.

  1. Oh my! I like your fabrics in Each size. I don’t really like Who-the-hell-were-the-white-socks-for? but the Idea let me smile each time.


  2. Congrats RAindrops!!!!! Welcome to the club!!!!

    Comment away!!!!

    (I’m back in my room for the final time before preplaining on January 2nd. I’ve gotten a LOT done, but I have so much more to do. My feet and back are killing me and we get to go to the mall tonight as we didn’t find what we wanted for dad last night – and we went to an outlet mall and Sams. Meh. Ouch.)


  3. Congrats to the winner! This is my favorite of your fabrics and I like that you used a purple zipper. Such a cute pouch. I forget…are the lilacs for John Proctor?


    • Yes, John Proctor indeed, because he says something about purple lilac… The fabric colours are really nice, I have to say. Not as stark as the black one, or as bright as the blue.


    • Thank you Dele – the little secret is what makes these little bags special. Otherwise they are just a pouch. But once you know who is represented on the fabric, it becomes a secret, guilty pleasure…


  4. Another lovely bag! This is not a ‘comment’ as I’ve already won something and am disqualified for entering this great raffle again but I just wanted to say YES for another calendar! They are gorgeous!

    And congratulations to RAindrops!


  5. Ach, ich schmeiß einfach mal einen Kommentar rein und überlege mir im Gewinnfall, wer sich gut als Beuteltier machen würde …

    Das Adventskalendertürchen hatte ich schon vor deinem Hinweis geöffnet. 😀
    Ich hab vor Jahren mal jemandem im Advent täglich eine Mail geschickt: Ein Bild ihres Crushs, mit stümperhaft aufgemalter roter Weihnachtsmannmütze und eindeutig zweideutigem Kommentar. Ich hatte bei der Bildauswahl und -bearbeitung bestimmt genauso viel Spaß wie die Person beim Angucken. – Hoffentlich war das bei deinem Kalender genauso. 🙂


    • Das ist eine gute Strategie. Guylty approves!!
      Und den E-Mail-Adventskalender finde ich fantastisch. Darüber freut man sich und muss sich nicht mal extra dran erinnern, dass man irgendwo was aufmachen muss.
      Und ja – das Erstellen vom Kalender war ein Riesenspaß. Sich so griffige Sprüche zu überlegen und zu illustrieren, ist ein wunderbarer Zeitvertreib. Schade, dass ich dafür nicht bezahlt werde 😉


      • Naja, das war zu Zeiten, als es noch keine Info ans Phone gab, dass eine neue E-Mail da war, also musste die Empfängerin zumindest daran denken, ihre Mails zu checken … Und das tat damals keineswegs jeder so oft … *Mehrfach* am Tag erst recht nicht. Du erinnerst dich?!

        *g* Himmel, die technische Entwicklung der letzten Jahre … Ich komme mir gerade steinalt vor. *gg* (Zu Recht übrigens; ich möchte nämlich nicht alles mitmachen, was möglich ist.)


  6. Guess who has been making the calendars where I work because I am the only one who knows how? Been busy with the holidays and people making calendars for gifts. I have several of your bags and love them. The little one I have I use it every day. Never can have too many.


  7. Congrats to the winner!
    I have this pouch and it serves me good. It always cheers me up when I look into my bag and find that silver thing in it (full of make-up XD )

    p.s. Not a comment. 😉


Let me know what you think!
