WELCOME 2012 - the old Year 's in the BOX - and a GIVE AWAY !

Happy New Year to all my Blog friends and followers !
Of course I also want to wish that everything you wish will come true for you this year. I can now continue with my "waiting-to-be-published" posts. In this one I will share two cute boxes I made as Christmas gifts for my Mum and sister. They got a little delayed on the sleigh-ride, so they opened them last night on New Years Eve. I first woodburned the design and the words in the wood and then gave them a paintwash and painted the details. They both have some glitter and goldleaf happening (that doesn't always show up on the photos so they are even better i.r.l.)

 
 -The Frog Box for my Sister-↑


-The Bird Box for my Mum-↓
 
I made some cards with the images as well, they are so cute and available in my Etsy shop now

NOW : For the New Year's GIVE-AWAY: 
The first this year, I am planning a few more for 2012, so stay tuned ! This one is going to be ...a... ? SURPRISE-package that will include these two folded cards with envelopes and.....more....but what ? you may ask......well that will be disclosed on the day I announce the winner !


So.....if you can stand the suspense, if you are curious and adventurous and ready for a surprise.....just leave a comment on this post to enter. If you like to do a blogpost on your Blog about this or mention it on your Facebook page, please come back and tell me with another comment and you'll have another entry ;) The lucky winner will be announced on Monday 9 January ! I hope I have managed to show you that I really appreciate you coming to visit my blog and support me again and again and hopefully many more times to come.
