GIVEAWAY that's right I said GIVEAWAY

Recently I was the of winner a giveaway from Lauren at This Little Piggie Went to Market which included many a lovely thing, including some of her handmade goodies.

This wasn't just any giveaway though this is a very special giveaway, it is a pass the parcel giveaway that was started by Vicci at She Will Have Her Way here and then continued on by Lauren here.

The idea of the giveaway is that the winner gets the parcel, takes out what they like/what fits/what's shiny etc and then adds to whatever is left and passes the parcel on as their own giveaway. So it is a bit of a pay it forward giveaway, I thought it was the most brilliant idea, and was so happy to be part of it, and now you can too!

So just to clarify the rules
  • To enter just comment on this post telling me you would like to be a part
  • The winner gets to select from the giveaway parcel what they like
  • The winner then adds to the parcel - whatever takes your fancy
  • The winner then hosts the giveaway.
Now I don't want to exclude people who don't have blogs from the giveaway I would really like to keep this going, so what I might do is, if someone who doesn't have a blog wins the parcel I might draw another name and make two parcels.

In the spirit of pass the parcel I've decided to to be explicit about what it's the parcel (because in the game it's a surprise! also It's not quite finished yet...), but I will give you a little bit of an idea of what the winner will be getting. The parcel includes some thrifted items of clothes - very fabulous but didn't fit me unfortunately, some lovely handmade items from Lauren - because I felt greedy taking all of them, I have added some more thirfted items of clothing and also some jewelery and accessories - all very neato! There will also be some surprises that I will pick up this weekend. I took into account some of your suggestions on my post asking what I want so hopefully I done good. I might included some pictures later if I feel kind, but think of the surprise people, the surprise!!

I'm going to hold the giveaway for 1 week - so entries will close next Friday *EDIT* ENTRIES NOW CLOSE SUNDAY AND I WILL ANNOUNCE THE WINNER ON MONDAY New Zealand time, which I think is Thursday for the rest of the world. So what are you waiting for - enter!

I've recently vowed to buy less and use more of what I already have. Having made this promise to myself many times before and failing, I was considering starting a blog to document my progress. This seems like a great incentive. So, if it's not too late, please count me in.
