Giveaway Time! {closed!}

Remember that giveaway I mentioned a little while ago? Here it is! I've teamed up with the lovely Tatjana Buisson from Postcard Happiness to share the stationery and postage happiness with you lovely people! 
Postcard Happiness giveaway!
It's such a great project and really resonates with me, so if you haven't heard of Postick or Postcard Happiness before, here's the dealio from Tatjana herself:

"I created www.PostcardHappiness.com in an effort to inspire people to get back into sending each other postcards. The digital age is wonderful and incredibly efficient but there's something so special about receiving a physical postcard that was written by hand and posted by someone special. It makes us so happy and it lasts as long as the postcard does. There are two main branches to the website: The Postcard Happiness Project and Postick.

The Postcard Happiness Project is an ongoing initiative which makes it easy for anyone around the globe to send friendly postcards to strangers who could do with a little extra happiness. I add profiles of people who are experiencing challenging times and a link to their personal postal address. You can check in on the site every week or so and pick a person you'd like to send some friendly words to. You write them a postcard and send it and voila! You've made a complete stranger very happy with minimal effort.

Postick (which is part of this awesome giveaway) is a product I've recently developed out of pure necessity. Postick is my brand of sticky labels that look like the back of a postcard. You can stick one on the back of a printed photo, write your message and post it. Stick one on fabric off-cuts, illustrations, magazine cut-outs, bits of beautiful packaging... anything! So when you see something that reminds you of someone, keep it and send it with a Postick on the back and your written message. "

Here's what you get:
1 x Postick pack containing 10 Postick labels
3 x A6 Happiness is... inspirational notecards
4 x Happiness is... patterned gift tags

How to get it:
1. Share your favourite happiness quote or inspirational words in the comments on this post  
For extra entires you can "like" the Happiness is... page on Facebook and follow me on twitter, and mention each extra entry in the comments section (all in one comment is fine) so I can count it in. 

Last day for entries is Monday next week (6th May). Only open to South Africa.

Go forth and join the postcard revolution!

    My fave quote is by Audrey Hepburn; "I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."

    But I heard a cute one the other day; "I want to be as awesome as my dog thinks I am." Now if only there was a cat equivalent!

  18. So I know this is technically my second entry but you've just had me thinking all week about this and I realized that a quote that almost always guarantees a smile on my face and an injection of happiness into my soul is simply this:

    "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine..."

    I think everyone has that person who is their sunshine and who is able to make them feel better even in the darkest moments! I know I have that someone who is my sunshine and whose presence in the world absolutely makes it a better place! Friends are such a sure source of happiness!

    So thanks for making me think!!
