What's on your winning wish list?
Oh, I know, as compers we all dream of
winning the big, exciting prizes. Cars, cash, holidays, money can't buy
experiences. I've had my fair share of those and I hope I will have more to
come. And we love the useful things too..... Shopping vouchers, food and drink
prizes, toiletries, nappies if you are a new Mum, bunches of flowers to
brighten a dull day. Even the tiniest prize can be a real morale booster.
But of those smaller prizes, which are the ones that mean the most to
YOU personally? I am always thrilled to receive a new book, yet a DVD or CD of
the same value wouldn't excite me at all. Fragrance, skincare, jewellery and
handcare products are favourite treats too. It's lovely to spoil yourself! And
now I'm a granny, children's clothes and toys make very welcome prizes too
because spoiling the grandchildren is even better than spoiling
On top of that, there are some things I'm really making a
determined effort to win this year. They include
A set of Downton Abbey
DVDs. I know I've just said I'm not excited about winning DVDs, but one of my
daughters lives in France and has missed several episodes so she's put in a
"Mummy win it" request.
A decent camera. I know I'll never be as good a
photographer as my husband, but now I have my food and craft blog I'd love to be
able to take decent photos. At the moment the only good photos are taken for me
Tickets to the Make It Show in Farnborough on March 1st to 3rd.
I've never NOT won tickets before so it would be a real shock to have to pay
Craft supplies. Regular readers of Onions and Paper will know
that I have banned myself from buying new craft supplies, apart from replacing
basics. I simply have Too Much Stuff. But prizes don't count as breaking a shopping ban,
A new bathroom. Well, maybe that doesn't actually count as a
small prize. But I would love to win one and eliminate not only the cost but the
hassle of shopping around and getting estimates. So the hassle part of the prize is the small-but-special thing.
So what are the little things that would mean a lot to YOU? What's on your winning wish list? Do let me know- maybe we can help each other to find suitable competitions to enter.
