Giveaway Time

Hi folks.  Sorry it's been a while since I've posted.  Work has been a shock to my system!!  haha.  I forgot how tired I got after presenting.  It does take quite a bit of energy.  Which means I've started eating more chocolate and drinking pints of coffee.  Need to knock that on the head.

Anyway, I will be crafting and sharing my projects with you.  I'll start putting them on my the blog next week - so do join me for that.  I'll tie my posts in with my weekly shows, so you can see some of the cards I've made for the shows, and how to make them.

In the meantime, I promised I would start giving away the makes from the Crafty Countdown.  It was going to be the first 5 - but I've changed it into the first 6. If you want to see how any of these were made, please just scroll through the blog to the beginning of the countdown.

And they were going to some of my blog followers.  The lucky winners, who have been picked at random are:

Maureen Lewtas
Lorraine Freeman
Cheryl Turtlemoon
Wendy Russell
margaret hankin
Beverley Laughlin

If your name appears then please send me your address, to and I'll get your winning card posted out for you.

Tomorrow I'll have a think how the next one, two or batch can be won - so do pop on back.

Have a lovely evening xxx

Hi, Leonie. I'm not surprised you're tired. You've been preparing for a new job, which is always exhausting, as well as working on tv at the end of it! Have a well deserved rest whenever you can. I've watched some of your shows and thought that Hochanda came alive when you were on. It's lovely to see your enthusiasm for craft, which I find quite infectious. I have recently bought a scan n cut and need to spend my crafting time getting to know it but I could easily be tempted into trying other things..... Jean Williams

You wore heels! Wowser! Lucky ladies to win these! I am not surprised you are worn out from it - the excitement of a new job and the nervousness of a new job knocks the stuffing out of most peeps. Just keep enjoying it and sharing your lovely art and nature with all of us Karen x

Myra said...

Hello Leonie,
No wonder you were tired! Your appearance was a triumph though and Hochanda are fortunate to have you! Your enthusiasm alone is infectious but when you add your talent and skill it is wonderful. I don't usually get so enthusiastic so believe me it is heartfelt!
Thank you and congratulations to those who have won the lovely projects Leonie made!

Hi Leoni great shows and really enjoyed them. You are bound to feel tired now after all the nervous energy beforehand and then the presenting. Now is the time to relax and enjoy it all. Congratulations to all the ladies on the list. X

Hi Leoni.

It's no surprise that you feel tired but we are so pleased and happy to have you back on the screen. I tried to keep up with all the things you done while you were not working, you kept very busy and looked liked you had plenty of good times.

Congratulations to all the winners!

Happy Crafting!!! :) X X
