Christmas / new year giveaway - wooo!

I've been thinking about the possibility of having a giveaway for a little while and I've now decided to have one to celebrate my blog's new name :)
An idea sprang to me the other night to do a giveaway with a little twist - the twist is it's a mystery giveaway! The items that make up the prize are wrapped up like Christmas presents and nobody will know what they are until the winner receives their booty! Fun huh?

I'm far too disorganized and bad at maths to have any complicated rules or to give extra entries for tweets so I have come up with a sneaky plan... There are two giveaway prizes! 

Prize 1 can be won by being a follower of my blog and commenting below that you'd like to win.  It'd also be nice if you told me what the best Crimbo prezzie was that you got this year.  Also feel free to link away to your own blog - I'm always looking to find lovely new blogs to snoop. 

Prize 2 is for twitter followers.  All you need to do is be a follower of @tweetiegem and re-tweet one of my tweets about the giveaway - schimples!

The giveaway is open to all blog and twitter followers old and new and I will pick the winner using the random number generator.  The prize will be posted to winners anywhere in the UK.  I don't want to exclude international followers, so if you live outside the UK, feel free to enter, but if you win I might need to ask you to pay something towards the shipping to your country if it's pricey.

Get entering!  The giveaway will close at midnight on Thursday 6 January.  Good luck! x

My blog has changed name from realfourteen to flutter and sparkle

If you're already following, your sub will have updated to the new name, but the URL will be wrong, so you might not see my posts in your reading list (and that makes me sad).

To fix this, please click follow again. You won't be following me twice or following two blogs, your sub will just update to the new URL - schimples.

Sorry, for being a trouble maker, but I really wanted to change the name!

Thanks for reading and following, Gem xx
