Spread L-o-v-e #6 - Go shopping with your personalised tote bag!

October marks A Happy Mum's 1st anniversary.

Yes, I have been blogging for a few years but this blog only started in October 2011 when I wanted to move on to a new chapter of my life. Well, I can only say I'm jolly glad I started it and if you are reading this, thank you for making my first year such an enjoyable one.

I wrote a heartfelt post about the five 'R's of why I blog recently and so I'm not going to dwell on that any further. Instead, I want to share with you something fun I did for my anniversary.

I brought my blog button out for grocery shopping!

I would have liked to adorn it with lace and ribbons or use fabric paint to make it more fanciful. However, since I'm only left with less than two weeks to clear one whole house of stuff and prepare for my return to Singapore, I decided to keep it simple this time round. So what I did was to print out my blog button and tagline onto a transfer sheet and then iron it onto a plain, white tote bag.

I guess, simple things can make you happy too, right?


As chaotic as it is at home, I've not forgotten about my Spread L-o-v-e giveaways and in #6 of this project, I'm giving away a personalised tote bag to one of my readers!

Here's how to enter:

1) Like A Happy Mum's Facebook page here if you have not done so or follow me on GFC.

2) Leave a comment below in this post and complete the line:
I love to go shopping because __________.

3) Kindly leave your email address so I can reach you. If you do not wish to post your address here, just leave a comment but drop me a separate email at summer@ahappymum.com.

Who can take part:
Anyone in any part of the world!

This giveaway ends on 5th Oct (Fri) midnight. A winner will be randomly selected and contacted via email. Results will be posted on the following day.

If you are chosen as the winner, all you need to do is send me your preferred photograph/ picture along with your tagline. You can choose to feature your blog button, your favourite family picture, a photograph of your idol or simply a picture you love!

Bag details: The tote bag is 100% cotton, white in colour and measures 39cm x 42cm. Washing is to be done at 40°C inside out, and washing powder is recommended as it is a light fabric.

Disclaimer: This gift is made to the best of my ability but not of superior quality. For some reason, the ironing and transfer causes the end result to look slightly yellowish. I have not tried washing, please do not hunt for me if the colours run. 

So, if you are keen to bring your blog button or favourite picture out shopping, do take part now and share the joy of my 1st blog anniversary!

Let's Spread some L-o-v-e!

P/S: The winner will have 3 days to respond with the picture/tagline so that I can finish and send this gift in Oct before my printing and craft supplies get shipped to Singapore. If not, you might have to wait till Nov to receive it!
