2 small wins and pilgrims cheese

Last week I had 2 small wins, one unexpectedly turned up in the post, which was kin mouthwash!!!!!! It is worth £4.50 and didn't remember entering this but it seems as though I sent a postacrd off to win this in march sometime!! Oh well I will defo use it, I suppose it saves me buying it.
The other was from the maid to the stars facebook page, I won a challs cleaning product for my royal poem!! I will up date my totals when the prize has arrived as I don't know which one i will be receiving!!

I have been getting slightly disheartened by my lack of wins recently, I am determined to keep going though, I have entered quite alot of postcard copetition both locally and from the magazines which I get. I have also made something for the pilgrims choice win with cheese couture, I have to say I am very pleased with myself! It did take me about 2 hours to make though! Let me know what you think!
 Here's my rose bracelet

2 small wins today

I won a Mr Tumble magazine, my boys love watching him so hopefully will enjoy the activities in the magazine. I also won an ID gel wallpaper stripping tool from a facebook competition. This will come in handy when we decorate the kitchen.
Since I have come back from my holiday I have been thinking of prizes that I wouold like to win because I need to buy them anyway. Firstly I am going to need a pushchair, my daughter is 6 months old now and my son is 2 and a half and is not wanting to go in the double pram any more. I have a phil and ted so it can be used as a single pram, but as we will be going on holiday in the summer a small pushchair is a must. So I have 3 months to win one!! I am going to give it my best shot, I thought I would start by doing the following things:
  • Add all baby and pushchair companies on facebook
  • Add all companies on twitter
  • Do all pushchair related competitions on moneysavingexpert
  • Open all my baby related 'junk' emails I get to see if they have any competitions
Anybody have any other ideas? Please let me know.:)
Secondly I am going to need mascara in the next couple of weeks so will do all the above points aswell, i'm really hoping this will be an easier challenge as I have won a few before!
Wish me luck....

Colouring competitions..........

We have just been on holiday for 10 days to Holland and we came back to discover Leon my 4 year old had won a colouring competition with galt toys. He has won a sponge painting art set, when I told him he was delighted and asked if he could enter more! These type of competitions seem to have very low entries I think this one had 6 entries altogether, Leon's, Toby's (my 2 year old) and 2 that looked like they had been coloured in by adults!!!!
I can't help but feel slightly disappointed that I haven't won anything, but I will kept trying, I would love to win a holiday, but I do find it hard finding the time to seek out competitions that require effort, therfore lower entries.

Prizes today £8.00
Running total £236
