member news

Yesterday I had an email from Joanna of Mold club she had found out via Facebook that she had won a runners up prize - this was her message;

"Cowling and Wilcox:

The winning number for our Winsor & Newton Watercolour Stick giveaway is 4! Congratulations Lynne Gibbins!

Well done also to Runner Up, Joanna MacKintosh, who will receive a goody bag from us.

Thank you to everyone who entered, keep an eye out for more freebies soon!

Today, my prize arrived from Woodware (the Dreamweaver stencil prize) and I picked the Picasso tool - should be very useful:"

The motto for competitions is - you have to be in it to win it.  This is so true, & as I have said before I think - some of the things Joanna has won has been down to merely putting a comment on a website.


This morning I had another email from her which was headed - "I did it again!" - here's the email;

"Just seen on FaceBook:

Affixit Craft

Wow...what a fantastic response to our "Free Gift Time" Like & Share to Win a Super Sticky Kit + Christmas Paper competition we have had, Now to announce the WINNER.........Joanna Mackintosh - Congratulations your gifts are leaving us today! x"

Joanna closed  with this statement

Should I be feeling embarrassed? Or just very happy?"

I emailed back with just one word - Happy.

Keep going Joanna & I think I might join you in 2015.  :)


  1. I'm almost (but not really) embarrassed to tell you that since this morning I have found out that I've another prize on the way to me - for a challenge card I made for the Michael Strong group. No prize was officially offered but the lady in charged loved my lily card so much she's sending me a gift :)
