A Sunday Kind of Love – BerinMade Print Giveaway

This contest is now closed

I’ve got an extra special Sunday Kind of Lovin‘ on the blog for you today in the form of a bonus giveaway! When illustrator and designer Erin of BerinMade emailed me this week to share some of her new designs, I was instantly smitten with them – especially her “I want to licorice you” design – it’s so cute!

Erin has very kindly donated 3 A4 sized ‘licorice’ prints + 3 hand lettered valentine’s day cards for me to give away to 3 very lucky readers! All you have to do to enter is go check out the brand new BerinMade etsy shop and comment below saying why you love/deserve/want a couple of her gorgeous designs to adorn your walls.

The 3 winners will be chosen at random and must reside in the UK. Each winner will win both an “I want to licorice you” plus a hand-lettered valentine’s day card. You have until Wednesday 19th Jan 2011 to enter and winners will be announced on the blog in next week’s Thursday Treats post.

*This is NOT a Sponsored post – I just love!

#It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…#

Specially outside my front door, as it is currently snowing…woo! Will we finally have a white Christmas this year? That would certainly be awesome indeed. Let’s see what I’ve been spending my time doing this past 7 days shall we?

♥ The wonderful Gala Darling is one of my biggest blogging inspirations. She wrote this letter to me (well to all her readers, but it’s so poignant to me and how I’m feeling right now that it might as well have been addressed to moi) to let us know how great we are. It totally made my week so I have to share it with you too. Be sure to listen to the audio version, where she reads it in her cute kiwi accent. I heart her. Thanks you Ms Darling!
♥ My SEO article was featured in the UK website, Enterprise Nation, which is all about the 5-9er – i.e people who work full time jobs but run their own business after hours – that’s me alright! Thanks to Emma for the feature
The Broke Ass Bride website has had a glamorous makeover! Dana has worked stupendously hard to revamp her already stonkingly popular blog.
Why fewer blog comments aren’t a bad thing
♥ Being in the UK, the new FTC announcement for sponsorship transparency doesn’t apply to me. However this article has persuaded me that writing one may be the best blogging decision I could make.
♥ We bought kittens! We have to wait until February 7thto get them because they are still only a monthand a month and a half old. I love them so much already! The one on the left is a boy and the one on the right is a girl. The are Maine Coons and will be heeeuge when they grow up (check out the girl’s daddy!) Any help with names will be greatly appreciated. Want to see more piccies?
