New Year Giveaway - kick start your creativity!

The New Year is a great time for new pursuits, so if you haven't embraced your creativity yet here's a great opportunity to have a go (and fabulous if you already have a passion for creating!) with a few bits and pieces I've put together to make a creativity doll.  Of course there is a certain amount of bling and other embellishments:


I've included a ready sewn doll shell - it just needs stuffing!  You can either leave it blank or colour it with acrylic paints, permanent markers - write a creative affirmation to yourself - or textas.  It's up to you.  No technical skills required - embellish to your hearts content and most of all, have fun!  There are also feathers, buttons, ribbon and lace, and I'll pop in a piece of calico and some instructions on how to make a face.  (I'm sure there will be a few other bits and bobs added by New Year!)



All you need to do to enter the draw is leave a comment on this post.  If you post a link to this post in your own blog you'll get a second entry - but remember to leave a comment to tell me you've done it!

Good luck - you've got until midnight on 31st December - I'll announce the winner on New Year's Day. xx

Lovely to be introduced to your blog! :) Don't count me in on the giveaway - I've just moved a mountain of craft supplies and don't need any more - but good luck with it all!

Oh how fun does that look! I like the idea of trying fabric pens. I've been meaning to for ages. This could be an interesting way to experiment! Merry Christmas & Happy new Year!

I love your blog Larissa. And the doll ....I've been intending to try my hand at creating something similar and had just never carved out the time. You've inspired me! I'm headed over to my blog to post a link to your give-a-way there.

Hello Laura,
Love your approach... and since I work in different, non-traditional media a lot, the doll sounds like fun. Haven't made a doll for years... who knows?
Just loving you and the fun you create!
Will add a link in my blog post! www.starbear.wordpress.com
