Tuesday's giveaway… Emily Hogarth

14 Sep

I’m very excited about today’s giveaway… this is one I really wish I could win!

Just before Christmas 2008, on a rainy lunchtime, I went along to a crafty/arty exhibition in Leith and there I discovered the gorgeous work of Emily Hogarth.

She had an absolutely amazing ‘Caledonia’ papercut that I so wanted to buy…

… but then she confused me by telling me she did custom papercuts meaning I could have anything I wanted. So I went off to think about it and I’m still thinking about it now!

Anyway, for today’s giveaway Emily is offering up two amazing prizes…

One winner will win the tea-towel of their choice…

While another winner – and this one needs a drum-roll! – will win their very own customised A5 cutout!

How amazing is that?! Here’s a few examples of what Emily has done in the past for other people…

Emily says she “could include names, special dates, themes etc” so it’s totally up to you what you want!

Here’s one she did for a couple representing all the places they had lived in…

And here’s my absolute favourite of the things she sent through… I feel very Scottish all of a sudden!

So here’s what you have to do to win… Visit Emily Hogarth, have a wee look around for ideas, then come back here and tell us what you would like to be in your cutout and why.

Emily’s favourite will win the customised cutout. The second favourite will win the tea towel and postcard… so remember to say which colour you want too!

I’ll reveal the winner next Tuesday. If you’re one of my Facebook fans, you can also leave your comment there. Follow me on twitter? You get an extra vote for tweeting about the giveaway!

And that’s it! The blog birthday giveaway is over…

Well almost… but more on that another day!

UPDATE: AND THE WINNERS ARE….


Over to Emily to announce who she’s chosen as her winners. (I have no idea who I’d have chosen if I’d had to pick someone!)

“Well I have read through them all and it was really really hard! But the winner of the commissioned cutout is…

LEXI! It will be lovely to create something for her new baby!

BUTTERCUP CAREN has won the light blue tea towel and postcards! As it sounds like it will match her apartment wonderfully!

JENNY

NICKIE C
has won the red won (hopefully the red can be be a nice Xmas one for her, as I’m also a huge fan of Christmas!)”
