About 1 month ago I was lucky enough to win a great giveaway over at Pink Stitches. I won $30 store credit to spend at Zipit. I have only used zips in a couple of projects before (I find them a bit scary), but decided to order a collection of 3inch zips in lots of pretty colours and they arrived today!

Look at those lovely colours… I almost don’t want to use them! But then I do have lots of them so maybe I can use a couple ūüėÄ

And in the packet was an extra surprise that I had not ordered. This super cute zipper pull and a fortune telling fish! (fish says I am “in love” which I am, with the zips!)

I have a couple of ideas on what to use the zips on, properly to make some cute little purses and maybe something for Christmas. I am sure I will share what I decide to use them on in a later post, (and also how my attempts with zips went!)

And the winner is …..

The other week I was lucky enough to win a giveaway on the Monster and Me. When the parcel arrived I had rip into it and just look at all the goodies!!

I really love the strawberry dust pan!!

Also I promised last week to tell you how my trial of printing onto fabric with my computer printer went. Well it started well, stuck the fabric to the paper easily, and it went through the printer and the ink seemed to be staying well and not smudging. The paper would feed into my printer fine, but coming out it kept squishing up at the front which made the ink smudge all nasty and the fabric get ruined ūüôĀ I eventually gave up after 5 sheets, but maybe if I get a new printer I will give it another try because it did look promising! Oh well!

And the winner is …..
