I was wondering if you could a minute of your time to vote for my nail art in this competition.
It means I'd win £500 worth of cosmetics and make me a very happy Bunny!
The site is looking a lot more 'swish' these days and I've noticed that alot of recurring 'bugs' are fixed...
But is there anyway the Board could be improved at the moment of writing this the font for the sections are the same colour as the background making it really hard to read...
Also could the board have bits where we can have signatures... so we could have our blogs, shops, twitters.
Also a feature where you could click on something like 'show new replys to posts' or 'show unread posts' would be pretty useful.
All in all it's looking pretty good. :)
Yeah fair enough I've heard of Molten Brown :)!
I just double checked it Wickham not Wickman.
AND they do those fluffy socks in accessorize which to be honest is a great shop to buy presents for sisters from.
I'd want the books by Madeline Wickman (which is Sophie Kinsella's name when she first started to write) they are being re-released under with new covers.
It depends how old she is? I mean at the moment I'd want some nice perfume, a good mascara, or some nice cosmetics from the Sanctuary which you can get in the BIG OLD BOOTS NEAR WHERE YOU LIVE!!!!!
Well I won this contest... http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/contests/hardware-store-decor-contest
and got my prize pretty soon... though it still says winners announced soon but if you click on it my names there... confusing.
So if you haven't heard anything about 2 weeks after contest close, I guess it's safe to assume your probably haven't won! :) x
Any help and publicity you can give me through deviant art if hugely appreciated!
I'm not on there myself so anything you can do to inform people of the giveaway is great! I may join at some point later today myself.
I like the ones with the cosy fleece (3rd) ... I read a blog post how shearling boots are really in... over at
So they get my vote! I like em all really though.. i cannot wear boots with a heel so all those are perfect for me.
there is an option to comment anonomously but the competition is only open to subscribers. So if you don't want to use google/blogger, you'd need to subscribe via facebook or the newsletter option and then let me know your name or you'd just be ms anon!
I'm aware that the comment option is having a few issues at the moment (thanks jonesy!) so I am working on making the whole process a bit more simple! :)
Hope this answers your question! :)
@jonesy: I do know where you live. I played table tennis there once. Plus it has a big TESCO. Makes Hertford Tesco look like an anaemic prawn.
Yeh a litte publicity wouldn't go a miss thanks :)
@Momo I have advertised it on my facebook but not one person has seen it on there and entered apart from maybe Kiddo? Which means the 309 friends I have hate me. (god Im such an emo)
Not just any old Craft book but this....

Love to all my COAK friends!
Aww thanks guys.. The Etsy thing sounds good.
I'm really excited about the upcoming one! Been sent a Halloween craft book for review so that's going to be up for grabs. Best get moving on it actually :S
I want to have a giveaway on my blog some vintage fabric and other bits but I'm a bit :S about it.
I've never done one and I have less than 100 subscribers who I don't think actually read.. Does anybody have any advice or done giveaways sucessfully? It would be rubbish to only have 5 entrants!
@Em I checked out craft fail! Also love that site! It's so funny! I'm definately going to have to submit my story of craft fails to that site as I have oh so many!
I think it's just the delusion some people must be under that gets me! hehe
I know! :) I just needed to check it wasn't just me finding it hilarious as I do still get a little pang of sympathy for the poor people who may be a little deluded! Ha!
I hope I'm never on it... but then again it may shoot me to crafting fame for all the wrong reasons!
Can't believe I only just found it I must have been under a rock!
I recently started checking out regretsy... http://www.regretsy.com/ and I was just wondering what other people thought of it.
Some of it makes me laugh out loud but at the same time I feel so bad for the people that are being mocked.
Just wondered if anybody else had thought on it... :)
I'm not on it... to my knowledge or any other CO+Keepers!
