SWEET TWEET birthday prize ribbon by poppyandclover

I had a really hard time choosing the winner for the clutch giveaway in my first blog post. Many thanks indeed to all 137 contributers. After much consideration I have decided that there are THREE winners, all of whom win a $75 gift voucher for my Etsy shop and free international shipping.

They are:

1) Sarina who wanted to be a siren, 'lounging around on sun warmed rocks half naked by the ocean, singing all day and entrapping handsome men.'

2) Emily who made me smile with her wish to be a hippo as she could, in her own words, 'lounge around, eat all I want and never be offended when someone said, "You're as big as hippo" because, you know, I would actually *be* a hippo. :) '

Holly - who *technically* should be disallowed as her answer wasn't a creature as such but is still a living thing (check me out, bending the rules). She would like to be a redwood tree.... '[in the redwood forrest just outside of San Fran... I visited there recently - beautiful!!] They are tall, strong, majestic, wise and very long living!'

Special mention goes to to the dotty one who wanted to be an aubergine.

Thanks for the fantastic answers. I can offer everyone else who took the time to enter this giveaway a 10% discount on any purchases and free international shipping in the Month of May. Simply type the answer you put into the box at checkout and I'll refund shipping and 10% via Paypal.


  1. Thanks for the special mention :o) I don't know where aubergine came from - clearly some vital part of my brain must be missing!
    Thanks for the discount offer too - I may well take you up on that - just need to spend a couple more days convincing myself I really do need ANOTHER bag!
    Am really enjoying your blog xx
