★ 20 Crafty Makes ★ and a GIVEAWAY ★

20 Crafty Makes is a little book bursting with creative projects, published to mark the 20th anniversary of the Stroke Association. Each book has twenty little gems of deliciously crafty projects to keep you busy on the cold winter nights (or lazy summer evenings) and each book sold raises money for the charity. It's a perfect little Christmas present that also gives something back.

Twenty makers have produced super-easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions on how to make lovely, clever, crafty things. You can learn how to print a collagraph card, crochet baubles, cross-stitch like Mr X Stitch himself, illustrate a tee, sew a purse and design a wonderful Christmas tree decoration, plus lots and lots more. You can even follow my project too if you fancy, which teaches you how to print your own reinbin wrapping paper (a reinbin being a reindeer and a robin muddled by magic, of course).

And here's the GIVEAWAY. Hurray!

It's super simple >>>>>>>

I'm giving away one copy of the book + the original Reinbin stamp I used in my project. So if you win, you not only get a 20 Crafty Makes book, but you can can merrily print lots and lots of wrapping to make your presents extra special this year too.

For your chance to win, just leave a comment on the bottom of this post before 9pm on Sunday 2nd December.* The winning comment will be picked at random and announced here on my blog.

The book is for sale from the 20 Crafty Makes Folksy Shop and costs £5, or you can order your copy by sending an email to
Profits from the book and e-book sales will be donated to the Stroke Association to support its future work and research.
