Some of you have have already said you would like to have a go at being a Guest Designer (GD) - also to be known as a 'Parsnip's Prefect', suggested by a certain scallywag - and I thank you so much for that. I'm thinking that it would be good to feature a GD (using snippets with flair/aplomb/inspiration) on this bi-weekly post in future so we'll kick that one off in two weeks time as I didn't want to rush anyone.
Please, please remember - this is a fun challenge. Never be afraid to put your hand up and say 'I'd like a go Miss'. We don't 'judge' one another in any way and I truthfully don't know of any other challenge with such a happy band of Playmates. In fact, I do know of some which come very close - but, to me, there is a beating heart in this Playground - and it's not just mine/Parsnip's. It's a whole load of little pitter patters of hearts, snuffles and snapping of knicker elastic as tisssues are removed from knicker legs - yup, I did that one as a kid too!! Plus scuffles, paper rustling and sharing of sweeties plus tinkling bottles of course!!
For this post I've picked someone deserving of a Gold Star who used snippets really effectively (and using up snippets is the whole point of you coming here, although the way snippets breed I suspect it's a losing battle!). I need a snippets Gold Star badge - help! This won't necessarily be a fortnightly thing, but pretty often there is one entry that just leaps out at me as being extra-special - and this is the one from Weeks 263/264:
Made by Heather - and there are other great ideas over in the same blog post so do go and take a peek please!
Now for our peek at the other picks:
That's my picks - as always a very hard choice! We had 71 Playmates joining in this past fortnight - with two new little friends joining us:
Prize draw time now and our winner of the Marianne Design Creatables - Shoe die (LR0291) and the Docrafts - Xcut Embossing Folder - Wicker is:
Well done Tina! Can you please drop me an email with your address in and I'll post your prize off as soon as possible! My email address is on the right hand side bar.
Well, that was a bit easier for me. Not the rush to do the post immediately the gates closed, not as many picks I'm afraid as that was adding a fair bit of time to the work doing a write-up each week, and as suggested by Sarn I haven't delved back through old posts and my own records to work out when the prize winner last had a win. I've also not spent lots of time chewing over how recently I might have featured someone chosen as a weekly pick. It's great to spread the love but in terms of back checking 'who featured as a pick when' it was unmanageable so without resorting to random
selection I've just gone with what I feel is right.
Talking of random selection - guess whose number was actually first out of the pot for the prize? Janice - she who actually made the card which started it all off - couldn't make it up could you! Do the Lottery kiddo :)
Keep those snippets entries coming, you still have a week left to play remember!
Love from the little white peril and me
