It's my blog birthday today!

I have been blogging for a year now and thought I'd celebrate with a little give-away. I heard that on average, a person in the UK buys 31 greetings cards every year so I thought I'd give away some cards to help someone on their way to their yearly quota.  Twenty cards are up for grabs (some of which are shown here), some are printed (by the lovely Paperclip Cards) and some are hand made, all of them are designed by ME! Please leave a comment if you'd like to win. I'll draw the winner on Sunday the 11th  December. Good luck! (This is a world wide give-away)

Little Tree

My son found and dragged the stick home, my hubby added the stand and I decorated it in little Autumn lanterns. My family think I'm barking mad but I love my little tree.

Olympic 2012 Posters
The official posters for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, designed by some of the UK's leading artists, have been unveiled. There has been a flurry of criticism since they were released, with folk saying they are "disappointing' and "absolute rubbish". Personally I like them but if I had been asked to choose an Olympic poster, I would have chosen the above by Galenz Galinato aged 10 from Thorpe Primary School who won first prize in the Peterborough Olympic art competition.  I love it's honesty, creativity and HOPE!
