my first giveaway!

Woo-hoo! It's MAY GIVEAWAY DAY! Man, I can just feel the hours being sucked away as I look through all of the amazing things to be had online today....

I'm so excited to be participating, and with such amazing company I really wanted to bring it. So here it is, my super-awesome giveaway:


A British Words cloth book! These babies can be had in my shop but if you're lucky this one could be yours completely free!

I will ship internationally so everyone is welcome to take a chance. Just leave a comment on this post between now and the end of the day on May 31. I will randomly choose a winner on the morning of June 1.
