Tickle the Imagination

Tickle the Imagination


Hello friends,

As an official ‘tickle the imagination’ ambassador I would love you to do a few things for me.

  1. Get down to your local newsagent and grab the latest copy – which just happens to be Issue 17 –┬ápaper.scissors.rock. which is all about celebration tradition fun, games and crafts that you can enjoy with the kids!
  2. Go to my Facebook Page and enter the ‘tickle the imagination’ refer a friend competition – seriously, winning this is kinda awesome! There is a ‘tickle’ goodie bag full of crafty and creative goodness just waiting for the winner
  3. Head on over to the ‘tickle’ site and take a look around, and while you’re there why not sign up for a subscription. At just $49 for the year it makes a great gift, but seriously, you’ll need to purchase two because you just won’t want to give it away! And this month’s subscribers have the added fun of winning a gorgeous ‘birdynumnum design’ dreamer (valued at $59)


That is about it for today but I’ll be posting regularly about ‘tickle the imagination’ as well as holding some great competitions and giveaways from the girls at ‘tickle’!

Oh, and if you grab yourself this month’s copy and you’ll find lots and lots to keep the kids busy – awesome to stash away for school holidays!

Some Lovely Words for Your Beloved…

Some Lovely Words for Your Beloved…

Stuck thinking of something special to get your mate? Perhaps you’ve left your run too late and now you’re starting to get a little hot under the collar thinking perhaps you should have purchased earlier?

Never fear dear reader, a solution is close at hand…

Pop into your closest art supply shop and purchase some heavy, good quality, archival paper plus a few ink pens or something else you’ll be handy at writing with and get writing…

Here are a few others prepared earlier than you for inspiration! Oh, and next year perhaps you can order one of these earlier and save yourself the stress!

Love, Mrs Jones x
