Blogtacular giveaway!

I’m very excited to be going to my first bloggers’ conference this weekend. Blogtacular promises to be such a great experience to learn from others and meet all of the ridiculously talented bloggers that I have followed for the past year or so.

Can. Not. wait.

I’ve got my business cards ready – I got stupidly excited making them! I decided to get one side printed with my logo by Moo and left the other side blank so I can either stamp my contact details or write personalised notes, if needs be. The big problem with business cards, especially when you’re at a big event and there are loads of them flying aorund, is that they get thrown away or never looked at again. So, I also ordered some glassine envelopes and vintage tickets to accompany each card to make them a bit more exciting…

Stamped business cards

If you’re going to Blogtacular and take one of my cards, the ticket will automatically enter you into a giveaway draw to win this bolster cushion cover (for storing your winter duvet – my favourite thing to make at the moment!). Make sure you keep the ticket and check my blog on Monday 12th May as I will announce the winner here!

Liberty print and ticking stripe bolster cushion

The bolster cushion cover is made from John Lewis ticking stripe and Liberty’s Mitsi print. It is large enough to stuff a kingsize or double duvet in to it; perfect now that the weather has got warmer and we can switch to summer duvets. Alternatively, it fits two two feather pillows. If it doesn’t suit your style, it would also make a great present.

If you have the lucky ticket with the corresponding number either email or tweet me (contact info in the sidebar). Look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you so much to everyone for saying hi and taking time to have a chat; it was really lovely to meet you all. I’ve now got a list of a million ‘to-do’s’ after being inspired by what everyone had to say! A big, big thank you to Kat Molesworth and Kat Goldin for all of their hard work and brilliant vision to bring Blogtacular together. Here’s to next year!

    Thank you so much for all your comments – it was great to meet some of you, didn’t quite make it to meet others! Too many people, not enough time. Hope you all had a brilliant time xx

    I’m so bummed that I didn’t meet you at Blogtacular. Nametags would definitely have helped to find each other, but I’m glad you had a great time (like me!). Hope to see you next time (or in Paris 😉 )!
