Have you visited my Facebook Page recently?
The countdown to Witching Hour has begun!
Mwah ha ha!
If you’re a frequent visitor to my planet, you’ll know that Halloween is THE biggest event in my seasonal calendar; even bigger than Christmas.
Halloween or Samhain (pronounced Sowen or Soween) marks the start of the Celtic New Year and, like any New Year’s celebrations, it’s one of the most important of the ancient Gaelic festivals.
Forget December, it’s all about 31st October at The World of Suzy Homemaker!
After going a little nuts last year and gaining a reputation as The Witch at OneandSeventy, I’ve started early on this year’s Halloween decorations in a bid to get ahead of myself.
Beloved was dispatched to the loft a week ago to hoof out the ever-growing number of boxes marked “Samhain” and while many of you were chasing what might well be the last of the summer’s rays, I spent my August Bank Holiday excitedly pillaging the shelves at Homesense of their AMAZING Halloween items.
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll be well aware of some of THOSE goodies!
I may be in full Halloween crafting mode, but I know many of you are rolling your eyes and groaning.
“What? It’s only just September for pity’s sake!”
So to get you in the mood, I am running a very special, Halloween Giveaway.
Win a jewelled skull worth £150
The Facebook fans among you will already be acquainted with Edgar.
AKA One Eyed Willy, as some have dubbed him, Edgar made his debut a few weeks ago to much adoration.
Oh how he lapped up all the attention.
Talk about big head.
The number of people who wanted to buy Edgar took me by complete surprise. I made him as a quirky accessory for OneandSeventy’s Guest Room; it never entered my mind to sell him.
Edgar was a labour of love. After hand-painting the life-size replica skull, I painstakingly glued on each and every one of those beautiful beads and jewels by hand, in an epic crafting session that totalled 7 hours across two days.
While Edgar may not be for sale, I’m delighted to announce that Edgar has a twin.
A twin you can WIN!
Ah… I knew him well.
Slightly less detailed than Edgar, but equally as beautiful, you can win Yorick by entering my Halloween Giveaway.
Each of my jewelled skulls is entirely unique. No two will ever be the same and as of today, there are only two in existence. If you were to buy one of these pieces of art, it would set you back £150.
All you have to do be in with a chance of winning Yorick is enter the giveaway via the Rafflecopter widget below.
The instructions are self-explanatory, but basically there are three options. Each option carries a number of entries. The more options you complete, the more entries you’re given and the greater chance you have of winning this amazing prize.
The giveaway opens on 3rd September 2016 and runs until 3rd October 2016.
A hui hou,
This giveaway closes at 11:59pm on 3rd October 2016 and is open to all visitors.
The winner will be selected randomly via the Rafflecopter widget and will be announced on The World of Suzy Homemaker blog and Facebook Page by 7th October 2016.
