Giveaway Time!

I'm back from a lovely holiday in Norfolk, where we 'enjoyed' an even more eclectic selection of the British weather than usual.  Inspiration wasn't lacking, and I produced a couple of pieces to choose from for my entry into the latest Wire Goddess challenge, which I'll blog about next time.  I also played about with wrapping one of the beautiful pebbles that Norfolk's beaches are studded with:
And, for anyone who thinks that Norfolk is just flat, let me tell you it has some of the most stunning forests in the country.  I'd never actually seen an entire forest of silver birches before (right next to a pine forest) and as the silver birch is my favourite tree, I was inspired to make this tree of life pendant, with a cluster of violets at the base of the tree:


I recently reached 100,000 overall views on my Flickr album (which, while not a significant milestone to some, still makes me feel chuffed!), and to thank all those of you who have taken the time to look at my work, I've decided to give away the tree pendant.
 

All you have to do is leave a comment on my blog (and follow it if you aren't already) and/or leave a comment on my Facebook page LouiseGoodchildDesigns by next Sunday 13th May.  Feel free to like my Facebook page too - if you do like it! - but it's not obligatory.  I will put the names into my trusty straw hat next Sunday, and will contact the name drawn by an independent judge (my long-suffering hubby again) to obtain your address.  If you would like me to hang the pendant from a simple thong so that it's ready to wear, just let me know.

Again, thank you so much for taking an interest in my work, and please do keep coming back - I'm not done yet! :D

I just joined your blog a moment before reading that was what I needed to do to try to win your lovely piece! Your work is so creative, I want to hear more about it! It was great hearing your inspiration for this one--I'm imagining that forest of birch trees now!

Thanks and very best wishes! --Sharyl

P.S. I found this through the CBC group. I'll go find your fb page next! Thanks for the give-away offer! How exciting!

I found you through the CBC facebook page as well..and had to follow that tree! It is beautiful, and I love the variation of the delicate flowers at the base of the tree. You should go on vacation more often if it provides that type of inspiration!

Found you through CBC group and my friend Sharyl. Your work is awesome! I joined you blog. Please do not include me in the drawing. Much as I would love to win, I have been blessed lately with a couple of wins in other giveaways, and want to give others a chance.

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments. x

Rene - sorry it took you so long to find me, I originally called myself Cobweb's Cache, decided after a while that it was a ridiculous name that anyone hearing it would mispell, so I changed it. Isn't it amazing what you can find with Google now, though? :)

Pine Ridge Treasures - that is very generous of you. Feel free to include yourself next time I have a giveaway, though! x
