The last work day before the festivities. I am busybusybusy, so typically lots of mistakes happened today when I had no time for delays at all. Grah! So forgive me for being short today. The uber bling necklace from yesterday has found a new decolletage to rest on. The winner is…
Valsgal – I still have your address, so I am going to the post office now to send off the necklace, hooray!
Next up is today’s raffle.
We’re beginning to run out of place for those decorations on the image… Talking of decorations, though… Remember the little hanging frame decorations and the snowball? Well, today’s rafffle prizes are a mixture of the two.
I found these cutesy little photo decorations which are filled with lots of glitter and stars, and I couldn’t resist them. There is something incredibly satisfying about shaking the decorations and seeing the glitter flitter all over the photo, only to settle back down again. It’s hard to describe it, so I made a little video:
Sorry about the massive size of it on WordPress – I’m not sure how to adjust that. But anyway, you get the drift. I chose photos from a series of shots by David Venni from way back in prehistory, because they had a glitter background that was fitting, and because one of my forever-favourites of RA are from that series. However, my printer has been playing up and decided to only print with a festive pinegreen tint. Hmph. (Cf. what I said up there about errors that were slowing me down today.) Sorry. Good news is that you can swap the pictures out of the frames. The pictures are easily removable, and the silver passepartout can be reused.
The other piece of good news is: There are 5 of these frames, and therefore I am extending the raffle to 5 winners today. So one of these frames each will be raffled among the entrants.
To win one of the five photo decorations, leave a comment on this post. The raffle is open for the next 23 hours and finishes at 14pm GMT tomorrow, December 23, 2017. The raffle is open to all, and the items will be sent anywhere in the world, at no P&P costs for you, thanks to a generous contribution to the postage fund by Perry. Winner to be announced on Day 11 post of the 12 Days of Christmas 2017, tomorrow.
Just a little word of warning – the post office will be closed for the next four days, so the prizes won’t be sent until next week, and consequently not get to you until after the new year. Sorry!
Lastly, I am psyching myself up for a week-long visit of mother dear. She will be celebrating Christmas here with us – which is nice. But experience from the previous years tells me that cabin fever is going to set in on day 4 the latest. Wish me luck!
