100 !!!!! and 5 !!! GIVEAWAY!!!!

Well I've got there at last. 100 followers, actually 105!!

I am going to have a giveaway!!! I hope everyone will join in. All I want you to do is leave a comment here and tell me what makes you smile.
We are going away in the campervan this weekend for a couple of weeks, our destination is Scotland. I'm hoping when I return my Mojo comes back with me. It has been well and truly in hiding this last few weeks. I have so many things I need to get on with, including restocking my fair box.
So... on my return I will do the big draw for the winner of the giveaway,it will be on 7th September which is a special day for me. The prize will be a surprise parcel of bits and pieces made by me. Love Jain xx

  21. I am a follower of your old blog and now I am here also. I would like to take part on winning your giveaway.
    Often very little things make me smiling: to watch at little childs on their faces, to see animals in a funny way, going with a open mind through my town I always find something to smile. And by getting older I smile more and more on all the little things and being happy.
    With a smile in my eyes

  22. Please count me in Jain. Besides the usual things that can make a person smile I love seeing our troops returnig from the war zone. Its like you've been holding your breath for months and you can finally take a new one. My job is in support of them and their families so that event is very satisfying.
