Win a Perfect Tea-Time!


It's competition time! I've joined forces with the good people at Cafédirect to bring you a truly excellent prize. Cafédirect have very kindly provided me with a hamper full of drinkable Fairtrade goodies for my blog readers to win, including: São Tomé Hot Chocolate, Hand-picked Tea, Classic Medium Roast instant coffee, Rich Roast ground coffee, a crisp Fairtrade tea towel and a shiny new mug to drink it all from! I'll be honest- when the box arrived, I was very tempted to drink it all myself!

And if all that wasn't enough to make for some top teatimes- I'm adding a few of my designs to the prize pack too. I'm giving away a large-size A Cup of Tea Solves Everything print, a limited edition Bourbon keyring (not available to buy- anywhere!) and one of my new Jam Heart biscuit cushions for you to cuddle up with!

Visit Cafédirect online for more about their fine Fairtrade hot drinks and for an extra chance to win some biscuit cushions & drinkable goodies!

HOW TO ENTER:
Just make sure you follow my blog and leave a comment on the post below saying why you'd like to win. I'll pick a winner at random on Friday the 9th of March at 9pm GMT**

Good luck everyone!

**Please note- due to the size & weight of the prize, this competition is only open to UK residents.

As I've given up Chocolate and Coffee for Lent, this would be a lovely way to end on 8 April 2012 (not that I'm counting but I've 44 days left!)

I'd like to win so I could give my mother this lovely stuff when she's out of hospital from her operation. She'd love the 'Tea solves everything' print in our kitchen, and the cushion would look nice on our settee.

Also, I'd like to experience tea that's not from a teabag, I've never had one of them before.

Blackmagpie said...

i need to win as my chocolate digestive cushion is quite lonely all on its own on the sofa! Also your stuff is awesome and i like tea! Tea for when i'm knitting.

=)

I love all of your things, but as a student I can rarely do something other than gaze in wonder and in wait of my birthday! The prizes would also help me brighten up my new flat?

gigifiji said...

Looooove this, I'm a fan, sew and draw,paint, adore art. I live in dundee and am a total tea jenny! Amazing art and design creations. Id love to win and would celebrate with a most awesome tea party!

Red Boots said...

Oooh, I'd like to win as I've just had a baby, so when my baby goes to sleep I like to do nothing better than curl up on my sofa with a nice cup of tea. Some new tea, hot chocolate and coffee and a mug would make it even better, and a gorgeous cushion to snuggle up to would be the icing on the cake (or rather, icing on the biscuit!!). Following the blog too :) x

SMR said...

Hi, love the blog, thanks for the competition!

I'd love to win for lots of different reasons, including: it's been a pretty rubbish week at work and a good cup of tea would be just the thing, my boyfriend started a brand new job last week and it'd be great to give him a present and/or I'm training for the London Marathon and am looking forward to the post 17 mile cup of tea I'll be having on Sunday (as well as the post 6 mile cup of tea on Saturday!).

Anyway, thanks for the blog - now following on Friend connect (and on twitter as @KeyserSuze)

Oh my goodness I would love to win this prize! Being a model I rarely touch a biscuit but I love a good strong cup of tea. Your bourbon biscuit key ring is so cute and yummy looking, in fact all your tasty goodies would be enough to satisfy a biccy craving! Love it.

Already following via google reader but I've followed via blogger as well. Would like to win as the cushion could go with the tunnocks tea cake one in my girl's room.

feeoonah said...

I'd love to win because... I'm a fan of your work and a fan of tea and coffee.. and I have a degree show coming up and need all the tea and coffee and goodies I can get my hands on ;) fi xx

vanillaink said...

HI Nikki,

What a great prize. I want to win because I love your work, so much so that I had to bring you in to speak to 50 2nd years from DJCAD to share your awesome success.

I also love tea so much that I have it tattooed on my. A teapot and a teacup with words from a Scottish rhyme that my grandad sang to me when I was little saying "I'll gie you a cup o tea tae keep yer belly warm." I also have loads of hearts tattooed so I am obviously attracted to your cushion and you never know, if I win, I might throw in a bourbon tattoo too ;)

Roisin Connolly said...

Ahh how exciting. I already follow your little blog but I shall leave a comment.


I don't know about you but when it comes to making I will always be found in my work shed in the wee small hours and a yummy coffee always go down a treat, keeping me awake and warming me up- my shed, it's not so warm.

loving all the new cushions. You're keeping busy.

marmalady said...

Your jammy heart cushion is gorgeous- it would make me smile every day :)

Your jammy heart cushion is gorgeous- it would make me smile everyday :) I love hot chocolate, it is the perfect treat with marshmallows x

Nicola Louise Reed said...

Been a follower for a while and if there's someone who likes her tea - inspired memorabilia its ME!! Plus your work is lovely and I wants some! :D xxx

hannahdickson said...

I want to win because I love tea, and biscuits, and prints, and chocolate, and cushions!

Amy said...

ooo!
I have been following your blog for a wee while now, your work is lovely :)

The reasons I should win are
1. I am quite (very) partial to a good cup of tea
2. Tea should always be accompanied with a biscuit and if possible, while relaxing on a biscuit shaped cushion.
3. Dundee is the best place to live.

:)

Roobarb said...

What a gorgeous giveaway Nikki.
I love reading your blog and watch you grow your business. You are doing a brilliant job keep up the great work :)

Sarahm said...

Love your blog and your work and although from experience this week a cup of tea can't solve evrything, it can make things a whole lot better!

Unknown said...

Moving into a new office soon - this would be the perfect 'settling in' bundle!

We'll have a tiny, boring, white kitchen with dreary white cupboards...the print would bring much-needed cheer to the walls.

The rest of the bundle would make me SO happy and therefore SO much more efficient ;)

Lovely prize! (And three cheers for good old Cafe Direct.)

xx

Sheila Roussel said...

I'm so glad you came to talk to the 2nd years at DJCAD now I know about your Blog and I can enter this competition!
I am a tea addict, I was brought up (from a wee girl)drinking cups of tea and dunking my rich tea bisuits!

mhairi m said...

I think this prize would help me through the last few weeks of my degree. Coffee is an essential in 4th year!

Michelle said...

Ooh this tea and coffee selection would help me with my makes for my first ever craft fair, and I'll snuggle up on the lovely cushion when I'm all tuckered out :)

tillymintboutique said...

I would love to win because (il be completely honest) I LOVE your designs! You're a very talented lady! :-) x

Emma said...

After seeing your designs at the London Ideal Home Show, I have been saving up for two cushions that will take pride of place on my sofa.

Winning would mean that I will no longer think it is acceptable to demolish nearly a whole packet of biscuits, in one go, as I will then have to face your beautiful cushion, knowing full well that I have just destroyed a whole packet! It is a sacrifice I am more than willing to make!

Hello!

May I be entered please?

I'd like to win because I love tea, and those cushions are really cute, and also I live in Dundee, so you wouldn't even have to post it!

I'd maybe even be very kind and give the keyring to my tea-hating (I KNOW!) husband.

Thanks :)

wennster! said...

I'm very much of the oppinion that there's not much that can't be sorted by a cuppa, and a biscuit-well, bourbons rule as far as I'm concerned!
