When I decided to close down Blank Canvas Gifts I had a couple of weeks of sadness - thinking about how much the business meant to me and how much it had grown in a few short years. For some silly reason one day I decided to map out where my kits had been sent across Australia (and a few around the world). It was pretty cool actually and somehow that little exercise made me feel better.
It also hatched an idea!
Christmas is the time of giving. And I LOVE to give! I spend hours trying to think of the perfect present for someone and then almost hold my breath when they open it, hoping I've got it right.
So now it's my turn to give back to all who have supported Blank Canvas Gifts. When I did my map I realised I'd sent packages to every State across Australia - with lots going to remote and rural Australia. (In case you're interested 40% WA - my hometown; 20% NSW; 15% VIC; 10% QLD; 10% SA; 2% TAS; 2% NT; 1% ACT).
And I'm pretty sure there are plenty more kids who would love a gift from Blank Canvas. So I've decided to give some away. And by some, I mean 10! One for each State with a bonus couple for my fellow sandgropers.
So if you know a child who loves their art or someone who would love a little extra under the tree this Christmas, enter them in the competition to win a pack. All you have to do is:
- find this picture on either my Instagram or Facebook page (click these links to go there)
- comment with their parents username and State or Territory - eg @blankcanvasgifts WA (and if you don't want to enter online, send me an email at email@example.com with the subject Competition Entry and note their email address and State)
- I'll randomly select 10 winners (one from each State + bonus 2 for WA) on Monday 11 December. I'll talk to their parents and work out the best present for their age group and express post their prize so it'll reach them for Christmas.
I hope you'll all join in and help me share some festive goodness this Christmas. You can enter as many people as you like - just use a new line for each entry.
(And it goes without saying this competition is not endorsed or supported by Facebook or Instagram - it's just me wanting to give back something this Christmas).
