Like Christmas all over again!

I never win anything! I'm one of those people who just never win a thing - raffles? Never! Lottery? You must be joking! 

So just imagine my surprise when I had the following message on Twitter. 



Now it's not wholly clear in my mind quite what I did here.  I think I retweeted something from Shirley at HandprintedUk.  Or did I vote for her for some award? I cannot remember. 

But what I do know is that, after having a good old browse around her website, I received a package. 


Lots of brown paper to recycle at some point. 


Ditto, the bubble wrap. 

And just look what is inside! 


Being somewhat greedy, I went for the biggest one! ( I paid the extra myself - these plates aren't cheap!) 

So now my mono printing experiments can be taken to the next level!!

    1. I think this will be. I've looked at a few online tutorials and Hilary Beattie's book and have all sorts of ideas.

  3. Congratulations Hilary! I never won anything either until I started blogging and then I won amazing things from other bloggers! It's a good feeling to see your name isn't it? Happy weekend!

    1. Hello Tina - thanks so much for your comment. It was certainly rather amazing to see my name on Twitter I can tell you. I have promised Handprinted that I will try to give them as much publicity as possible.

      I suppose I should try to sort our a give away here. What was the best thing that you won?

      Hilary xx

I love to receive your comments - so please say hello. I have just been brave and turned the word verification off. Lets hope those spammy gate crashers don't get in!
