BUMPER Christmas Giveaway!

Since starting Find, Make, Do in March, I have found dozens of amazing, creative, local and international artists and designers.
So here's a big thank you to all the readers and followers who have joined in ..... you deserve some presents.
As it's been such a busy, productive, Findin', Makin' and Doin' year, some kind and crafty folks and I have offered up a selection of cool handmade and locally produced goodies for the Find, Make, Do BUMPER Christmas Giveaway!
So ring the bells, pull the crackers and stuff the turkey...... it's getting to be alot like CHRISTMAS !

First up is a Betty Jo Designs Rainbow Orb brooch. There's a green and red one pictured in the Xmas collage, but you get to choose your own colour!Rainbow Orbs
These colourful rainbow hued brooches are crafted from recycled Linoleum and laminex discs and a mixture of pre-loved buttons.

Robyn Stewardson from Focus on Art makes adorable owls from salvaged household bric-a-brac ( I should know, I am the proud ownwer of a Kitchen Owl called "Big Night Out"). You might remember Robyn"s individually named and numbered handmade owls from an earlier post on Find, Make, Do. We are lucky enough to have this cute little fellow called "Hoyt's" to giveaway. He would be perfect hanging in your garden or kitchen to keep an eye on things. Make him sleepy or awake!Thanks Robyn. If you would like to find out about all the cool products from Focus on Art check out the blog.

Crafty lady Shara Lambeth makes the sweetest lasercut wooden brooches and you could win this cutie.The sweet little Fawn will love to sit upon your shirt and keep you company all day long :-)
This brooch is laser cut from sustainable Rimu wood and has a silver tone brooch pin at the back. See Sharas other gorgeous creations on etsy and check out her blog.


The extra generous Justine from Mixtape Zine has provided us with some copies of the latest issue (and the 2nd last ever) to give away.
Issue 14 has double cover action, Christina Gordon & Amy Karol !
Mixtape is a craft maga(ZINE) about making time for the small things! A collision of craft, eco-cool and pop culture kitsch. If you already have yours, this would be perfect to give to an uninitiated friend!

Leigh Wagner is a Brisbane based Visual Art & Design teacher who, in recent years, has turned her attention to jewellery making. Leigh uses recycled kitchen laminate in her jewellery, and we are lucky enought to have this very snappy Kookaburra brooch as a giveaway.The brooch has been cut from two sturdy layers of laminate and has a sprung pin attached at the back. He’s been cut from a decorative charcoal and blue patterned laminate in keeping with his natural Kingfisher coloring. Go and visit Leighs etsy shop for more broochy goodness!
Kristie from Rouke and Henry and Coco's Closet has given us this cute "Live Your Life Bunting".Consisting of three cool hand drawn images and inspirational words, laminated and sewn onto ribbon, this is totally one of a kind! Kristie uses old books to draw on, giving them new life and creating a great decorating item for a kids (or a kid at heart's) room!
The lovely Kirsten from the brilliant crafty online store Miss Milla's has donated a wonderful square glass pendant kit for crafty readers that like to DIY!You can make these gorgeous glass tile pendants yourself! This Glass Pendant Kit has everything you need including a professionally prepared tutorial with photos and tips to make 6 pretty pendants like this.
