Big fat wrap party giveaway

I am feeling a bit giddy about completing 52 crafts in 52 weeks – there have been some tough weeks when I had completely no idea what to make so thank you from the bottom of my crafty heart for all the comments, support, ideas and encouragement along the way.

To say thank you and to celebrate the close of year one here’s a little giveaway for you. After a year of crafting, and the anticipation of year two, I’ve realised I can’t possibly keep everything I’ve made. So here’s what I’m giving away to one of you lucky readers…
