The Story of a Spring Giveaway

ETA: Giveaway Now Closed

Oh I just love that it's Spring Time!
What I don't love is the idea of starting another week of night duty and sleeping these sunshiney days away. Ho hum.
I guess I have to keep myself amused in other ways. And so... I give you.... the Spring Giveaway!!


Filled with all sorts of delicious Springy goodness :-)
All you have to do to win this is leave me a comment here on this post. Tell me something interesting to keep my long nights enjoyable I beg you! LOL!
If you share this giveaway by blogging, Facebooking, Instagramming, Tweeting, whatever... well I'll just go on and give you another entry. And if you're one of my Followers.. well that'll earn you another entry too :-)

I'll keep this open for the duration I'm on Night Duty and draw a winner early next week. International entries welcome.

  3. What a wonderful Candy. And you're lucky having spring time. Here fall starts and it is getting cold already. Night duty can be hard, I know. I am planning a vacation with my parents in law and have ti find a way to calm my mother in law down during the trip. Real hard work, too. I guess our roadtrip will be very hard.
    I am already a follower and will be sharing this giveaway on my blog.

  5. What a gorgeous candy! I'm with you. I don't like it when summer ends. But on the other hand fall is a perfect opportunity to take some really gorgeous photos. Leaves in all colours of the rainbow - they are definitely something to wake up for as a photography addicted:)

  6. Of course I am a follower, I couldn't not be! As for a story, hmmmm. Okay, we made the most of a beautiful Sydney day yesterday and as a family spent the day geocaching in Sydney Olympic Park. We have lived near by for almost 5 years and we have never ventured through the park, really. It is just so surprising that there is such beauty right on our door step. We saw all kinds of beautiful landscapes and a huge number of birds. I hope I filled up a few moments for you!

  8. Hi Nat - would it be too cheeky to try and win again?? Oh it probably would but we will see how we go! I am so glad spring is almost here, although I do not like it when it teases us then gets so cold again. Today looks fantastic though, so I will be heading outside for some gardening. Thanks so much for a chance to win.

  15. You poor thing! Not ND again:( Blogged it, I'm a follower [oh! you noticed???!!!] & here's the comment. Nadda. I feel like Karen W. Nothin's coming. At all. Apart from trying to buy online tickets to the Accademia & Ufizzi Galleries in Florence for our trip...which I couldn't 'cos the internet was down...but I prevailed...& SUCCESS..even tho' I left it too close til when we leave & I couldn't visit when I wanted...so revised the itinerary. AGAIN. Oh, & exciting Poo stuff this am. Cos I'm 50 the GVT thinks I'll get bowel cancer, or whatever it is...so I got a Poo Kit. Fun trying to Poo on a sheet without weeing at the same time. Felt like I was 2 again - not that I remember that... used the wrong stick. Lost the paper work paper....but...the Poo has been Posted:):) Now, how's THAT for an exciting day? Betcha you're almost glad you're on night duty. Betcha you're VERY glad you didn't turn 50 this year!!!! And even more glad you work with pregger women....altho come to think of it, I remember squeezing out an awful lot of poo before labour kicked in good & proper!!!! Gosh, bodily functions are GROSS. That's why I was a hairdresser. Much more nice smelling - except for the peroxide for colours & ammonia for perms, I mean...THERE! That's kept you awake for a bit. Never ask an ex-english teacher to write stuff. Once started, you can hardly stop them...sorry Blogger.... sorry Natalie:):):) Byeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Night shift you poor thing, my daughter works shift work, she always seems to be at work or asleep getting over work or asleep to get sleep before she goes to work! I never know when I can phone her. I hope it is not to bad for you and goes quickly. I don't think I could beat Lizzy's story for the day lol

    cheers

  20. It made me chuckle to read about Spring since here in Canada, Spring feels like ages away! It's Autumn here (not yet, but very soon) - the leaves are already starting to change color. And although i love Autumn, it reminds me too much that Winter is right at its tail, so knowing that, i can never enjoy Autumn as much as i should. Winning your Spring giveaway would be sure to put a little sunshine in my life, and give me hope until Spring comes along for me - hehehe Thank you so much for the chance!

  26. I became a follower and I posted info about your give-away on my blog! I also enjoyed reading your stenciling tutorial. I don't know how you manage to scrap, maintain a blog, and work as an obstetrician! Amazing! Something interesting? I would win the prize for the slowest scrapbooker of all time. Each layout takes several hours--but I love working with color, so it is very relaxing!

  27. Hi Natalie! My life has been more than interesting.....Stressfull!!! My son left Perth to travel back to Melb and his car engine blew up in Norseman(he was towing a trailer and has his dog with him) now we are trying to work out how to get him home!? We may have to buy a car in Kalgoolie and get it to him somehow :( I'm very worried...I will keep you posted...I think I was your first follower...lol Your spring giveaway is fantastic, your very generous Nat!

  29. Hi Natalie, I have always loved your work and so with commenting on this beautiful giveaway I have also become a follower and will be posting this on my blog straight away.
    We live on a vineyard and harvest season is full of night harvests for my husband and I dislike it as much as he does. He's finally home during the day and he has to sleep!!!! and I still have put up with daily housework on my own :-(. Thankfully it's only for a few months.
    Having 4 children, I loved the night staff at hospital, they were my company when bubs let me know I was a mum; night staff had time for a chat, laugh and support. It was like our own world at night. Day time is full of activity and visitors but I always appreciate you all who work to help us all hours of the day/night.
    As for spring, we are welcoming it in the west. First 3 days of spring we had bad storms and were wondering where is the best season of the year. Then the nice warm days rolled in, beautiful. This morning I went for my first walk after dropping 3 of my children at the bus for school and it was so nice to be out again with the pram and the dog walking next to us. Funny thing was we just got home and it poured, phew we made it back in time, but now the sun is out again just right for my washing. Typical beautiful spring weather. Love it.
    Enjoy your night and hopefully there are only healthy little bubs born.

    I LOVE your work and recognised some of it from my other blog discoveries!
    As for your night shift, I hope it is a nice steady flow of non-urgent cases. So you don't get too bored or too busy!
    Hey, if you do get a lil bored why not pop over n say hi! Or cure/find the cause of pre-eclampsia lol don't want to go through it again but would love more kids.

    I really do not have any good advice for you for the night shift, other than trying to think positive, as they say, when you think positive, the world actually really does look better ;-)

  42. What a fantastic Giveaway. I'm so envious.. as you are just now enjoying your spring and we are dreading our long cold winters ahead. There hasn't been a killing frost yet, but it will be here one of these nights. It was only +8c the other day... DAY TIME... Ick! lol I so hate winter.. If I could I'd move to someplace that has a nice long summer. Or a place that has winter, but not cold enough to snow! Ohhh the life!

    I'll have your candy on my left hand column, so others will see your great candy! I'm a follower too!

    Enjoy your spring,
    Envious in Alberta Canada

  52. I'm an avid follower Nat - just love your work. I spent the most beautiful spring day yesterday, one full of bright sunshine and soft breezes, inside a humid noisy pool, time keeping for a swimming carnival for my son. I wish I could say I have made up for that today and am spending it outside but it has now turned cold and is grey and threatening rain - you can't win sometimes!

Thanks for visiting my blog today. Come back again soon :-)
