Recently, I entered a box design contest with Where Women Create and Sizzix, to create a box design for one of their cute cookie boxes.

I was very lucky to have my design chosen as the Grand Prize winner, how exciting!!

I received a big box of amazing goodies earlier this week, and wow! Did I ever get spoiled, check it out!

box of goodies

Everything was so prettily wrapped, in coordinating Where Women Create brand colours, so awesome! It was like Christmas in August! (I saved all the pretty ribbons to make a tassel garland to hang in my sewing room, heehee!).

bag and goodies

An awesome hobo-style bag, some funky Halloween-y burlap-style ribbons, an awesome necklace, bookmark, star ornament, and handcream,


A wonderful Where Women Cook cookbook, yum!- a Sizzix guide and project book, and some super cute kids/adult picture books- Norm and I both read them and they are wonderful!

And a whole bunch of funky dies to use with a Sizzix Big Shot machine (still to arrive, so excited to try it out!)- love the toast shaped ones, well I love all of them! So much fun!


I also received magazine subscriptions to all 3 Where Women Create publications, oh my goodness, so awesome- they are my all-time, and long-time, favorite magazines, I pour over ever issue and read them cover to cover. So inspiring and  fun to read! Plus a future feature in one of the magazines, stay tuned for that, another dream come true!

I feel so very lucky and grateful to have my art chosen to win such awesome prizes, what an absolute honour to be recognized by my favorite magazine and by Sizzix! I can’t wait to play more with everything and try out the machine, oh the potential!

Massive thank you to Jo at Where Women Create, Sizzix, and all the sponsors who donated prizes, I’m thrilled and honoured!
