For the past couple of years, I’ve really loved doing a giveaway on my birthday. It feels lovely to direct the gifts outwards, rather than it just being all about me. πŸ™‚

This year I’m able to step it up a notch, as I have not one but several gorgeous things to give away. So for the next week, I’m spreading the word far and wide to allow as many people as possible a chance to win some gifts that are specially designed to reignite inner creative sparks!

Here’s a breakdown of what I’m giving away, and after that the rules. You may know I have a bit of a thing about complicated and demanding giveaway rules, so I’m keeping it as simple as I can while still making it easy to share as widely as possible.


The gifts


21 Secrets Spring 2014

Connie Hozvicka has very kindly given me a second membership to the 21 Secrets workshops {in which I’m also teaching!} to give to someone who would love some new ideas and inspiration for art journaling projects within a vibrant creative community. {Starts in April.}

I’m also giving away a copy of my book, Creative Spark, which is all about how to rediscover your inner artist self in ways that integrate into everyday life.







art materials to get you started

A canvas board, some collage materials and a box of mini pastels to get you started or re-inspire your practice. And maybe even an extra surprise or two…






The ‘rules’

* To enter the giveaway, pleaseΒ take the link to this post and share it somewhere on your social networks; you can pin the images to Pinterest, tweet about it, post it to Facebook, share it in a blog post round up ~ wherever you like.Β 

* As there are three gifts, please share the link or images for the number of gifts you wish to win, and let me know in the comments which one{s} you have your eye on! I will enter your name for each gift that you indicate you’d like, and draw them separately.

So for example, if you’d like the book and the membership, you would let me know in the comments and then share either the image for each, or the link to the whole post twice somewhere on your favourite social media platforms.

* All entries to be received by 21st February {my actual birthday}, when I will draw the names out of some kind of hat.

* You can enter wherever you are in the world, as long as you can receive post!


Thank you in advance and good luck! I look forward to sending these goodies out to the winners.

The giveaway has now closed and the winners have been announced. Thank you very much indeed to everyone who entered and so kindly spread the word. I wish I could send you all something!

***Please would Becky and Nicole get in touch with me as I have no contact details for you!***
