give a little love

giveaway time!
i know, & you thought this day would never come!
well, for ages i've been wracking my brains trying to think of an original yet nice idea for something to actually give away and now i think (or rather, i hope) i have a good one (:
something that newcomers to my blog may not know (as i haven't written or posted pictures on here in a very long time, sadly) is that i like to make jewellery & other accessory-type things.
mostly i make the jewellery from quirky little things like pearl beads & toys from kinder eggs, but sometimes i use pictures of musicians i like or stills from movies i love, like these;
jimi hendrix

bob dylan

& john mayer, this one i made for my friend joanna.
i was thinking that i could make one of these for whoever wins the giveaway, & the winner can choose who (or what) they would like on it!
if this sounds like something you would be interested in, then to enter all you have to do is;
  • be a follower of this blog (obviously, as this is a thank you to the followers of this blog!)
  • leave a comment on this post with your email address
  • and, just for the hell of it, in your comment tell me who your idol is & why.
  • for extra entries, you can tweet about this giveaway, or blog/tumble/whatever you wish - just remember to tell me in the comments so i can give you another entry!
the giveaway will end on december 5th at midnight gmt. i shall be picking a name in the old-fashioned way - out of a hat - & will contact the lucky winner as soon as that happens (:
edit: i changed the deadline of the giveaway as it might give me more time to get materials together, & that way it's a bit closer to christmas!


  1. Wow, this is a great idea Charlotte! I love the Hendrix one!

    I love Kele/Bloc Party as they have some of the best songs I've ever heard, lyrics wise, and I just love the songs. Bad reason, eh?


  2. Such a great and origional giveaway idea.

    I LOVE Orlando Weeks from The Maccebees with every little peice of my heart. Amazing music, amazing guy.


  3. oh, what a lovely work, charlotte! i love hendrix and bob dylan too! i´ll try do something like that but with my husband... :D
    good idea, girl!


  4. Oh gosh, what a fantastic idea! I love the Bob Dylan one, especially :)
    my email address is:

    Hmm... My idol would sort of be a toss up between John Lennon, Stephen Fry and JK Rowling, because they are all inspirational, wonderful people.


    Oky so my idol HAS to be John Butler - his music and words inspire me to be a better person and appreciate the world.

    And I will include this in my next post!
    But for now, I have a new post which you can take a peek other words, i'll link your blog in my next one :)

  6. AH MY HEAD IS EXPLODING WITH DESIRE TO DIY. These look so amazing. Someone's going to be very lucky!
