View Full Version : Hand Crafted Reward House - Competition - Closing date Friday 20th July 2012

04-07-2012, 02:06 PM
Another lovely hand made craft kindly donated by Helen :thumbsup:

This is what Helen says about it:

This one is a hand crafted house measuring 12x9x8 inch

The house is a rewards box, the lid lifts off access the rewards inside....I have inclosed 15 little rewards ( advise some are small so may not be suitable for very small children) winner could add any rewards or treats they want.

The box is board based so won't really be a suitable plaything....it really is more a pleasing decorative piece with a useful purpose

Cleaning would only need dusting....no wet cloths etc.

For your chance to win, simply add your comment below and winner will be drawn from all entries after the closing date. To make it fair only one entry each member will go in the draw, even if you post more than once.

Closing date: Friday 20th July 2012 - 12 noon London Time. Winner will be notified by private message and must claim their prize by Sunday 4th August 2012

Gosh that is fantastic I now feel distinctly less than average at my craft although I knew it was bad when my DD told me that my attempt at drawing a cow looked like a cat! :laughing::laughing:

Clearly not my gift but I do always have a go !

My treat house

The kitchen so untidy,
but beautiful just the same
I love to drink hot chocolate in there
especialy when this rain.
Tea cups around every corner,
none matching of course
one printed indeed
of nothing but a horse.

The gardens outside are bright and colorful
Flowers everywhere being very beautiful
stones on the ground leading the way
Wow! Is what you'll always say.

One day I will live in this house
and be so thankful each day
because everything will be going my way.

14-07-2012, 12:46 PM
That's so pretty! hoping LO's will be good to get the reward inside with a chance to get their hands on the house for a moment

Thank you for the really lovely posts about my creative things.
I have promised Pauline another special prize very soon but I will leave her to advise you about what they are....however Pauline has given me permission to tell you all that if there is anything that you see made by me you are welcome to contact me and I will make them to order. I really do just do these things for my pleasure and relaxation so I only charge what it costs me to make things.
Thanks again for the wonderful way these things have been accepted.
Helen :group hug::group hug:

Received the house today it is absolutely brilliant and is so realistic looking, you would never guess it was made out of card. Helen is very very clever. Thank you.
