Stuff I like that you may like
I suddenly have twenty followers. As a thank you for reading my little poems, I am having a giveaway this week. I do not know how many people will enter (if it's not many I probably have enough stuff to send a prize to everyone) otherwise I will maybe choose one winner for everything? Or a few winners?
Gee, I am not very good at this giveaway thing.
I will not be employing any pyramid tactics (along the line of - follow my blog and blog about my blog on your blog and use that Twitter thing and facebook my blog and you can have an extra entry - although you can do all those things if you like). All you need to do to enter is comment below with some fact about yourself, why you read this blog and which prize you would choose. Bonus entries for writing (or attempting) haiku! I will choose the winner(s) using some wonderful random-choosing mechanism, sometime this weekend (which is probably Friday where you are, unless you're in Australia or NZ). All prizes will be accompanied by bonus goodies (like stationery and haiku) and, if you are foreign, Australian treasures.
Sean Morris. It measures 19x25cm (about 8x10 inches) and is black ink on a white background (not grey as demonstrated by my dodgy photography). I picked this up at one of my favourite stores, William Topp.
Second is the Pigeon prize - something to hang in your home plus something to hang on your ears. Well, the birds on the mobile are probably not pigeons because they're not crapping on anything but you could add that in with some correction fluid. The cardboard mobile is also from William Topp and the tiny heart earrings are from Perth's Pigeonhole. Do not be misled by the giant pencil in the background - the earrings are tiny but not teeny-tiny.
Mel P Designs and a wooden brooch by Perth's White Square. Both were purchased at markets last weekend when I should have been studying. I may have to keep one of the crocheted cuties for myself so the prize will be one owl short.
Dena Drake felt paper plane brooch from the Moose: Art for Living stall at last week's Unwrapped market, accompanied by a selection of stationery including an O-Check notebook and some Japanese masking tape! That's right, bitches, washi tape!
The Bicycle Booty - this includes a bicycle tote bag and some blue bicycle paper clips from kikki.K. n.b. You do not need to cycle to appreciate this prize.
Safehouse by Boniko. It jumped of the shelf when I walked past and I just had to buy it. (Also, check out their website for a giggle.) The bag will contain some secret bag-lady gems for the winner.
Russell Leonard tea towel from Moose and some surprise stuff suitable for a naughty girl. I have a Russell Leonard tea towel and can attest to its generous size and ability to absorb.
Darn, now that I've posted it, I want to keep everything for myself. However, it is all for YOU my lovelies (except the one little owl I'm going to steal). If you win something and don't want it, it is exchangeable for a handmade, handwritten haiku book. Also, there's probably stuff I've forgotten to post so keep checking throughout the week.
