    Had my first Advent win!

    A lovely set of hardback books.....so that's my December challenge filled in and I'm very happy to say that in all my years of comping this is the first year where I've managed at least 1 win every month!

    Good Luck everyone

    Hope the advents are going well for you all!

    Well done on your wins again!

    I'm due some luck, the pet that I had to cancel my holiday for lost her battle yesterday afternoon, one bonus is I can't sleep so I can catch up on some competitions!

    Wishing you all well for the Christmas period. Some advents are coming to an end already with only 10-12 days of entry! Can't believe how fast Christmas is creeping up.
    Thank you to everyone who posts competitions and good luck to everyone who enters.

    Thanks Marg2k8.

    Just had a surprise delivery of a big box of mixed papers and card from simply cards and paper craft social media giveaway. Very happy girl. (I'm a paper crafter so I will definitely find use for it.)

    Congratulations on your win

    The hummingbird came back yesterday and I've already won 30p on it.
    That will likely be me done on that then, but it won't stop me trying!

    Sorry to hear of your loss Ms Dee.

    Congrats Ms Dee, 2013YOTH & Lucinad on your wins.

    I've received a few WEMs so far this month from Orbit, Female First, Under the Christmas Tree and Mother&Baby. Fingers crossed the prizes arrive before the end of the year so I'm able to cross off at least 2 more challenges.

    I've won a big bundle of Marshmallows (YUM!) from a November comp and a toaster from an Advent!

    I've also completed (as of 11th Dec) all my 1000 entry challenges, except for email which there's no way I'll finish, but I'm happy I made the rest!

    Well done on the wins so far everyone!

    Fingers crossed you all get more soon
