Good Golly - A Giveaway!

Hello there!
Look what I have here... A basket FULL of Whimsy Farm Twine! And in bright, fun and NEW colours!

Would you like to meet the girls? Yes?

Alrighty, first up we have... Dolly!

Dolly is a vibrant blue twine - no white here, just full on colour! I once had a cow named Dolly, and she was the sweetest girl I'd ever met. Always the first in the dairy too, for a scratch and some extra feed snuck here and there. 

Next we have Holly...

I think I'm in love. This green twine is just delightful to look at! Holly the cow was a bit of a kicker in the dairy, but otherwise lovely... This colour has a bit of kick to it, so I thought it was appropriate! Also, Holly being green and Christmas-y... I thought it was a good fit.

Who's next? Let's see...

Molly! So pretty! This is so girly, I think she might be popular with Mummies of little girls. Molly the cow was a sweet little thing with the longest eyelashes, she was very pretty - just like this twine.

And lastly we have - can you guess? 
We've had Dolly, Holly and Molly...

Polly! Pretty Purple Polly.
Polly got to be an old cow, and she kept the young ones in line. She loved me, though!

So there you go - Whimsy Farm Twine's new colours! Exciting!

To celebrate the new colours 
(and my 1000 likers on Facebook - thank you so much!)
I'm giving away the four new colours to ONE lucky winner!

All you have to do is comment below with a happy 
Christmas-related memory - to get us all in the Christmas spirit! The winner will be drawn randomly using on Saturday the 24th of November at 7pm EST.

Also - and you don't have to do this to enter the giveaway - if you could share the Whimsy Farm Twine Facebook Page with your crafty friends, it'd be 'udderly' appreciated! And to those who have done so already, thank you so, so much. I'm just an ordinary little lady, juggling twine - so much twine! - with being a Mummy to three children (3, 2 and 1), and the lovely comments I get blow me away. Thank you all.

Good luck!

Twined-Up Parcels

I use twine every day to finish off my parcels. I love the idea of a customer opening their package and finding it wrapped like a little gift.

Whimsy Farm Twine Nellie is perfect for my parcels wrapped in brown paper; Nellie also matches just about any gift tag I attach, so she gets used quite a bit!

The blue-and-grey and pink-and-grey combinations of EllaBlue and EllieRose always make me think of elephants, so I made some little elephant gift tags to go with them.

And of course the red-and-black LadyBird is just meant for ladybirds!

Moustaches are everywhere now, aren't they? While I'm not a fan of the real thing (!) I do love some pretty little paper moustaches, pictured here with Whimsy Farm Twine Bessie.

Finally, my favourite colour at the moment - orange! So fresh and vibrant, Clementine brightens my mood every time I use it.

I've been sending so many parcels out lately though, that I'll soon have to devote a day to gift tag-making! (This isn't a problem, my favourite way to relax is by making gift tags... possibly with a bag of Clinkers by my side.) 

Til next time,
