Merry Christmas from harrysdesk!

December 13, 2010

As part of the huge international give-away run by Sew-Mama-Sew, I am having a give-away too.

I thought, rather than ME choose what you might like…. that’s happening enough at this time of year….. I would let YOU choose what you would like.

So wait for it…

$100 AUD to spend however you like in my etsy store. Everything there is handmade and upcycled.

It’s as close as you can get to responsible shopping.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

All you have to do to enter is comment below, giving me a three to four word phrase that describes how you are feeling right now. Don’t think about it, just write. Eg: Well I never! or Can I play? Something like that.

You have until the 17th to enter, and I will choose a winner randomly at Midnight Friday 17th December. I will then contact you… and you will scream with delight!

Lots of others are giving things away too. Go check them out at sew-mama-sew.

Don’t forget about

  63. Wishing I had a family.

    That’s 5 words, but it’s true. It’s hard to not have a family you belong to in the holidays and even though I am now married and have kids it’s sad and lonely during these times to see everyone getting together with their extended family members when I have none.

    Anyways, onto something happy……LOVE your giveaway. I went to your shop and was drooling something fierce. This would be the best Christmas gift EVER. Love your style, love what you create. Totally awesome, original and unique. I do hope I win.
