uni-ball Pen Competition and Giveaway

There’s a massive cross-over, I know, between fabric obsessives and stationery obsessives… Pretty notebooks, washi tape, cute paperclips, fun stickers and most of all, fabulous pens, so I know a lot of you lovely readers out there will be fans of uni-ball pens. Personally I absolutely love my Posca pens – they’re great for writing and drawing on fabric, and such fun for other projects too.

Have you heard about the Painted Rocks phenomenon? People decorate rocks then leave them for other people to find – then exchange sightings on Facebook groups like this one in the UK. I decorated these pebbles with Posca pens for my garden a couple of years back, but I’m definitely planning to make some more and use them to join in with the giant hide and seek game.

Patterns Posca Pens

If you’re always after some new pens for your collection, you’ll definitely want to take part in the uni-ball Snow Globe competition:


You just need to shake the snow globe to be in with a chance of winning, plus each time you shake, you will get another entry into a sweepstake draw to win a huge £300 Amazon voucher.


And if you’re not lucky in the competition, I have 3 packs of uni-ball Designer Eye pens to give away!

These are really nice pens – I am already a big fan. They seem to encourage neat handwriting somehow, they are such a pleasure to write with, and there’s a good range of colours too so they are great for bullet journalling, for designing and for keeping sewing project notes.

To be in with a chance of winning just leave a comment on this blog post before 6pm on Monday 18th December. I’m very happy for you to just type ‘pick me’, or alternatively you could let me know what you’d use your pens for if you win. UK-based entrants only please (sorry to overseas readers). Good luck!

Disclosure: uni-ball very kindly sent me some pens in return for promoting their competition and giveaway. 

Sugru Moudable Glue Giveaway

I’ve written about Sugru before – but it’s such a fun product, with so many applications, that when Sugru offered me a look at their new Create & Craft kit, I didn’t hesitate to say yes – and because I have been lucky enough to play with the product before, I thought I would share my good fortune with my lovely readers, and off the kit as a little giveaway.

But before we get on to the giveaway – you’ll want to know what exactly Sugru is. Well – it is a high-tech, mouldable, self-curing putty that sticks to most materials, and turns into a strong flexible rubber overnight. Sounds a bit unexciting? NO! It’s fab. Check out some of the ideas that come in the little inspiration book that accompanies the Create and Craft kit:

Make yarn loops for your wool basket!
Personalise your stuff.
Organise your workspace.
Make some stamps – do some printing!

The little kit contains 4 packs of Sugru, the little book of inspiration, a cute storage tin and a couple of tools to work with too. You’ll have fun, I know it!


If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning, just leave a comment here before 10pm on Easter Monday. As always a quick ‘pick me’ is fine, or you can tell me what creativity you’ve got planned for the Easter holiday weekend.

Happy to post worldwide, so don’t let that put you off.

Meanwhile, these little Create and Craft kits will be available to buy from Sugru at the beginning of May.
