Want to win £60? - CSN Sponsored contest

I was approached by some very nice people from CSN Stores to see if I would like to give away a £60 gift certificate to one of my readers. Well I love offering you freebies, so I had a look at the site, they have some fabulous stuff on there - from lights, to tableware, to cookware. If you are in the USA or Canada, you would get a $60 gift certificate if you won, to spend on CSN's US site. So even though they don't sell craft stuff, how about a coffee maker for your craft space, or a really good light for your table?

To win, all you have to do is to link this post on your blog if you have one, and leave a comment here telling me what you would buy with your gift certificate. Do you think anyone would notice if a person called Enfys won? I would love that Jamie Oliver cookware. The winner will be drawn by random.org on Wednesday 7th July at 5 p.m GMT or thereabouts, (noon EST)

As you read this I will be 35,000' in the air, fighting a losing battle with boredom. I have tried everything on long plane journeys - even taking stamped images with me to colour, but it's just too difficult, I kept dropping the tops of the markers, then driving everyone around me crazy by ferreting around on the floor for them. So I shall sit and read, and look forward to the rubbish food, which I always eat because I am so bored, and it's something to do. It's always the same choice of food as well, just cooked in different ways (we always use the same carrier). 'Chicken or beef' the cabin crew chant as they trundle down the aisle. When you ask 'what sort of beef? 'Lasagne' 'what sort of chicken?' 'stir fry with rice' Now it seems to me that their life would be so much simpler if they chanted 'lasagne or stir fry chicken' in the first place, to deflect the questions from awkward customers like me. No, the missing case has not appeared, very mysterious and strange

The missing case mystery! Quick someone call Miss Marple She'll know what to do! I can't believe you haven't found it.

I don't have a blog to link to, so I'll just comment here and hope for the best. I saw some great kitchen organization tools that I'd love to have if I should be so lucky as to win.

Hi Enfys, welcome home I suspect you wont be reading this till you get in, but its lovely to have you back. Hope that you didnt have such awful food as you described but I know some of the meals are awful on the planes these days. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxx

Hope there were at least one or two interesting people on the flight. People watching is always a good boredom fighter.

Arlene said...

Oh yes and I would buy something for the outside, really like the water features.

Hope you have a safe and uneventful trip home. Yummm, airplane food! On my last plane trip the person to my right across the aisle brought a pizza and the man on my left brought a giant Subway loaded with onions. The smells about knocked me out! I don't have a blog so can't participate in the $60 drawing, but it looks like fun anyway.

Well, my first trans-atlantic trip to Paris was this year from San Diego and it was brutally long. Especially when we discovered half way there that my mom's hearing aid had been run over by the food cart! Who can sleep on a plane anyway? I'll miss the DD posts, but I bet you can't wait to see those grand-babies. Thanks for a great blog. Pam

Enfys,
Something for my house. Mom needs some new bed linens. If they have that I will use it for her. I will miss you but still follow the blog. Thanks for the great work that you do and the inspiration you give to all of us.

I don't have a blog, but I would get a guidecraft kitchen helper.

Sharon said...

I forgot to tell you what I'd buy with the gift certificate: A clock. The clock in my craft room eats batteries for lunch. Don't know when my DH picked the thing up at, but I'd prefer he gave it back!! I've also put a link on my blog to yours. :)

I would love to win $60. I hope I am in the drawing even though I don't have a blog.
Did you know I need a new coffee maker? We can only turn it on with the program timer and the pot leaks. Sorry you didn't find your case. It couldn't have gone far, right? I just want to remind you how much I love seeing your cards and reading your emails. You are a real inspiration.

Carolyn said...

I would love to win so I could buy a good light for my table. I do not have a blog but I follow yours. Thanks for the chance to win.

Rufus said...

Hope that you had a nice, uneventful, boring flight home. So did you go for beef or chicken? LOL
