Giveaway #2 winner

The winner of my second ever giveaway is Donna in the UK!

I'm a little behind schedule as I was away camping on Monday, got back late on Tuesday and worked til 8pm on Wednesday... that's my excuse anyway! But the next draw will happen on Monday 15th October - sharp. Promise.

Donna has won a package of paper goods from my collection of bibs and bobs. For those who didn't see my earlier post explaining how this giveaway works, here is the explanation again (I posted this back on Sept 27):

50 followers give-away (but not the typical kind)
I have been thinking about a giveaway for a while, and having reached 50 followers today it seems like a great time to roll it out. But this is not your normal kind of giveaway because I wanted to do something that fit me.

So, here is how it will work: every three weeks I am going to pick a follower at random and post them a selection of ephemera (some, no doubt, will come from my wall). I can't tell you what will be in the package but it will be a unique collection of items, some that I have received by post, some that I have collected in other ways. It will be paper ephemera, perhaps a notecard or two, a menu, a bookmark, a postcard, a handmade envelope, a pretty piece of writing paper, a print or sketch. Or something else entirely. I'm not even going to hazard a guess at how many items I will send each time. Let's say more than 1 but less than 100. It will totally be up me and what I have at the time. I plan to put the package together before I draw the name so I can't even tweak it to suit what I think the recipient might want. Random!

My hope would be that the winning recipient keeps whatever he or she loves and posts on the other bits and pieces... but that is surely up to them.

I have chosen to do this every three weeks as monthly feels too far apart and weekly way too often. But I reserve the right to have a hiatus now and then or stop the giveaways all-together at some point in the future. However, I'm pretty keyed-up about doing this so I don't think I'll be giving it up for a while.

If I draw your name as a winner, then you will be excluded from the following two draws - just so that the love is spread around.

I had wondered how it would all go, but so far it is working out really well... and I'm loving putting together the packages.

Love from Kaz
