Happy Chinese New Year!
The above character is 福, the Chinese word for good luck or prosperity. Before you ask, no the tile is not upside down! During the festive season the character is commonly hung upside down, because the Chinese word for upside down sounds like "to come" in Mandarin... hence "come hither prosperity!"
For those wondering about my subject title... my birthday is coming in mid-March and I've always liked gift giving. I used to do small giveaways and exchanges on my old tatting blog but I haven't done any here yet... So... to celebrate my birthday, I'm giving away three small gifts!
First, a Disney Stitch Uni Kuru Toga pencil (the Kuru Toga is my choice of pencil when I'm in the mechanical pencil mood) and a selection of home cut tiles... and
... two more sets of home cut tiles, each with a snoopy pencil cap and a Mitsubishi 9800 2B pencil. Yes, Jetpens classifies these pencils as writing pencils but I have been using them on Zentangle tiles and I loving them... maybe you'd like to try them out too!
I am prepared to ship internationally (hopefully the shipping is not too scary!)!
If you'd like to have a chance to get any of these small gifts, please do leave a comment on this post =) with your email address! Or drop me an email at logically_thinking at yahoo dot co dot uk. Event runs till 15 March 2018!
In addition, for every reader who signs up for this simple giveaway, I will make a small donation to Arc Children's Centre.
