Card swap update, and Giveaway result

OK! Progress! I should have now emailed everyone with the name and address of the person to send your card to (if anyone hasn’t got an email, let me know, and I’ll send again). You’d be surprised how long it took me to work out how to do this, and it involved a cup of coffee and a break to look at these goats on the Post Punk Kitchen message boards, but I got there in the end, and I think it all fits together! Hooray! So, just to reiterate The Roolz:

  • Post your card to the person at the address I’ve sent you by December 10th. We’re sending a handmade card with a Christmas/ Yule other winter holiday greeting in it, addressed to the person you’re sending to (and put your name and your email/ blog if you have one, so the person who gets your card can say thanks if they want to!). Handmade can be as complicated or as simple as you like. So long as you think it’s cool, we will, too ;-).
  • When you’ve sent your card, could you let me know either by emailing me on uselessbeautydesigns [at] gmail.com, or leaving me a comment. Then I can cross you off my spreadsheet and I won’t have to bother you ;-).
  • If anyone’s card doesn’t arrive in a reasonable time after the 10th, let me know, and I’ll send you another card (it might end up being a New Year greeting, but I promise you’ll get something!).
  • When you get your card, it would be lovely if you’d blog it so everyone can see – you don’t have to, but I’m really excited to see all the cards, so I’d love it if you could! (If you don’t have a blog, send me a photo –I’m happy to mention it for you).

I’m looking around for cardmaking inspiration, and I’ll do a post with links sometime this week (and I should warn you at this juncture that every handmade Christmas card I have ever made involves something cut out of something else in the shape of a tree. I don’t know why I am so into trees, and frankly I try not to analyse. I will try to mix it up, but, just so you know, the Lure Of The Tree may be too strong).

Right, now on to the giveaway results, because if you remember I was also going to send a couple of lavender bags to a swap participant! Well, random.org tells me that the winning comment is comment number 12, which is Emma, from emmascrazydays. Congratulations, Emma, and I have got your address because of the swap, so I will be sending you a selection of lavender bags shortly. I do hope you like them. Also I have just looked at your blog, and your latest post features possibly the most marvellous calendar I have ever seen. Go and look at Emma’s blog and see if you don’t think the same. It’s quite fantastic ;-).

I worry for the goats...

My mother is considering what card she might make even as I type this. She did, however, once also consider making an apron in the shape of a carrot, so I am a little nervous :-(.
