Giveaway - win a months free advertising!

Would you like to win a feature all about your work and a months free advertising on this blog, just like December's lucky winner? Just follow this blog and leave a comment at the end of this post - that's it!


The winner of the December advertising Spot is... 



Also known as Serena Cowdy from the succesful blog Cowdy Calling, a humourous and friendly blog about Serena's many and varied talents, actress, photographer, artist and freelance finance journalist...  




The Copper Swallow Folksy shop opened a few months ago selling 1930's inspired, handmade paper goods, greeting cards, tags and notelets and has become a popular shop already. 

"Why 'The Copper Swallow'? Well, I've got copper-coloured hair and I tend to zip here and there at half the speed of light. A bit like a swallow, in fact - although with a lot less grace..."

She may not be graceful, but her work is stylish and elegant and Serena has a strong brand awareness, as she uses a very select palette of materials for her current range. Old stamps, manilla card and a typewriter from the 1930's are used to make each piece. 



This apple place name tag is a perfect example of her work, which is all refreshingly uncomplicated and original.  It also shows off her photography skills!   I'm fairly sure there will be more than a few sophisticated brides-to-be wanting Serena to take on their wedding stationary order - I'd get in their fast if I were you, she's a busy lady!
