How often do you enter giveaways? I only enter them if I really, really want the giveaway because somehow it just doesn't seem worth the odds - and I never win so those are the odds. And given those odds I forget about the giveaway seconds after I leave my comment/entry. So it was just the most unusual and amazing thing when I found an oldish message in my inbox from Kylie at Paravent (formerly known as the artist from 3 Sheets) letting me know I had won her cushion giveaway. I must have seemed like the rudest person, just ignoring the email, not replying with even a basic thank you. Anyway to say I was dumbfounded is an understatement. I wanted these cushions really really badly. I immediately made contact fearful she had given up on me and done a redraw!
When the cushions arrive and I saw them in person my jaw dropped. They are amazing. Not just cool but handmade flawlessly. Integrity all the way! Clever Kylie and lucky, lucky me.
I've been away from blog world for a little while due to illness and study so am a bit out of touch with what the bloggers are up to. But I do know, that after a small (though slightly bizarro) drama at the hands of etsy Kylie has started up a new blog called Paravent and left 3 sheets behind. So once my study is over (not long now thank goodness) I can reconnect a little to the blogosphere. First stop though to Kylie at Paravent to say a belated thank you, thank you and thank you again!
