100 followers mystery giveaway prizes revealed at last

Manoli (El Costurero de Manoli)and Paky (paquicheli), both Spanish bloggers, were the winners of the mystery giveaway prize draw held on 6 March to say "thank you" to 100+ Followers who had joined Make Mine Mini. (Original draw post is here.) As I mentioned at the time the prizes were a mystery even to me as I had decided to wait and see who the winners were before choosing appropriate gifts because of the diversity of interests of MMM Followers. Now that Manoli and Paky have received their gifts and posted about them on their blogs I can share them with you all here.

Manoli is an arty crafter who paints lovely flowers, has a collection of thimbles, and wishes to make new friends through her blog. With these things in mind her gift package contained an artist's notebook that I decorated using friendship as a theme, a Sydney Opera House souvenir thimble, and an Australian wildflower pen. After what seemed like a very long time 'in transit' Manoli received her package a couple of days ago. This photo of the contents is taken from her blog



Paky is a popular miniaturist with projects featured on her blog that include a small shop, a pub and a big house, all full of great minis so it was quite hard to think of something to add. Eventually I decided to make a nightgown and boxed underwear set and a small travel case to add to a bedroom. Also included was a small corked bottle of very tiny Australian seashells, and a pair of little sandals (thongs/jandals/flip-flops) for her house outdoor setting. This pic of the gifts is from Paky's blog



Congratulations again to my Spanish blog friends Manoli and Paky. Now I'm starting to think about the next giveaway....

I just love your various travel cases :). It is very hard to make something for people you have not met. Yet, we share through our blogs more insights to ourselves than we ever do in real life :). It is so thoughtful of you, Norma !

I read somewhere that you have finished your hutches?

Thanks everyone, your kind comments are appreciated :)

Ummmm Sans, I know where you read the comment about the hutches, but your memory is slightly defective LOL I have done some demolishing on two but reconstruction/remodelling and finishing will depend on exactly where I'm going to use them. Anyway, watch this space! ;)
