Mid-Winter Blues Giveaway.

I dont know about anyone else but this time of year really gets me down...christmas is all over and done with and theres nothing but bills and diets to look forward to!!
Infact some scientists even say that the third monday in January is officially the most depressing day of the year.
This year our most depressing day is the 24th January!


So in honour of this most miserable of days I'm going to hold a giveaway, which I'll draw on January 24th.
I'm not sure what I'll be giving as my crafting recently has been Lego and Meccano (guess what Evie got for christmas) and I've not really done any shopping either but there will be a winner and two runners up and all gifts will be blue or blue themed.

Usual giveaway rules apply...stick my badge on your sidebar and leave a comment on this post and I'll draw my winners on the 24th.
Good luck.

Em xxxx
