Sorry I’ve not been around much due to illness and life getting in the way.
I finally took the plunge and entered a couple of card making competitions in Crafting with Hunkydory’s magazine.
I sent this one off for the Reader’s Gallery competition of which there are 10 winners of a £100 prize each.
And this one off for the Sketch Challenge, the prize for this is £25 of crafting goodies:
And can you believe it???
I WON!!!!! I had a surprise package one day and I excitedly tore it open to reveal my £100 Special Days prize bundle! I was so over the moon and could hardly believe that I actually won and on my first competition too!
I still can’t believe it. It’s so pretty too!
This has boosted my confidence so much that I have entered their competitions in Isuue 35 as well as appliying for their Design Team.
So I’ve entered a good few competitions over the last month and I have had a few wins. My latest win is this Organix Goodies Christmas Selection Box and Goodies Berry Crispy Bars.
This is a great win for me as my toddler loves trying new snacks and is NEVER full. She is a two year old bottomless pit.
I won this over on the We Made This Life blog as part of a 12 Days of Christmas competition. Thank you so much.
You’ve got to be in it to win it!
Ok guys I’ve have seen loads of people moaning that comps aren’t real and they are all a con and nobody ever wins anything.
I have won a good few prizes since I begun comping years ago. I won a £1000 fridge freezer which sits pride of place in my kitchen, now this was a massive shock to me as I though I’d won a little beer fridge. This was won about 6 years ago in and advent competition during December.
I have also won a number of smaller prizes such as make-up, sprays, perfumes books, a crate of Feel Good drinks, cereals etc……..
Where is your evidence I hear you cry??
Well last week I won two competitions. Both were Facebook competitions. My first win was an AWESOME £100 Le Toy Van doll house courtesy of Brown Bear and it’s gorgeous and the toddler approves but she’s still a little young for it at the moment as there are small pieces in it. The second was a little win courtesy of Anchor and I’m still awaiting delivery of this prize which was the little Trumpety toy from the advert but still a win is a win and the toddler LOVES teddies.
The doll house was a great win for me as I am trying to win birthday and Christmas presents for the whole of 2017. So it has been safely stored away for the time being and the Trumpety will be a little stocking filler for next year too.
Good luck and happy comping guys.
