CraftyFolk MiniBook Giveaway Update

I recently received another beautiful piece of artwork kindly contributed by Miss Bohemia for our CraftyFolk Etsy Team Mini Book Giveway. Isn't this owl absolutely gorgeous?

Jen of Miss Bohemia said that she hasn't painted for a while but it certainly doesn't show!

This gorgeous flower was also contributed a while ago by Trish of MoodyCow Designs:
I think it will make a perfect focal point for the front cover, what do you think?

So we now have all the contributions and you can see them all here together - this really is going to make a wonderful prize for someone isn't it?



Watch this space for more pictures of the completed Mini Book and details of when the winner will be drawn. Remember, for a chance of winning all this loveliness, all you need to do is be a follower of the blog.

Just to note that I have also been sent a contribution by Leanne of The Press Gang. Sadly it seems Royal Mail has decided to lose it somewhere in that black hole they seem to have. Needless to say, if it shows up it will be included either in this Mini Book or a future giveaway.
