A huge thank you to everyone who entered the prize draw to win A Green Guide to Natural Beauty by Karen Gilbert from CICO Books.

Your comments were lovely and it was really interesting to hear about all of the different things you love making.

So I printed off  all of the entries, cut them up separately and put them in my grandfather’s old bowler hat, closed my eyes, rummaged and pulled one out.

And the winner is…


Congratulations to Anneline who said “I love anything handmade and love doing various arts and crafts but my passion is textile and surface pattern design which also means that I love to sew. This book would be perfect to help me with my handmade Christmas as I’m aiming to make all presents myself this year.

Thank you again to everyone for entering and to CICO Books for donating the book and postage, and I’m sure I’ll run another giveaway in the future.

For those that didn’t win, don’t forget the book is available to buy on and

Thank you!
