Better late than never - Giveaway Day!



A promise is a promise, so when I got home from work today, I made a belated prize for SMS Giveaway Day!

A sweet little tote made using Ayumi's pattern found in Krista's beautiful new book, Make It Take It, which I received on Tuesday...


If you would like to be in with a chance of getting your hands on this token of my appreciation, you can have two chances as I am feeling generous guilty:

i.  leave a comment letting me know the job you are least suited to - I am probably not really suited to my actual job, nor being a Nun, for so many reasons!

ii.  leave a second comment if you are a follower, old or new, and let me know how, GFC, Bloglovin, whatever, the more the merrier.

I will mail internationally; will re-draw if you are a No Reply blogger and don't leave an email address in you comment, and will delete comments in excess of your two allowable, harsh, I know.

The giveaway will remain open until 9pm BST Sunday 10th May, so I can email the winner before I go to bed!

Good luck xxx

  3. A job where I would have to sell / advertise something ... I couldn't really do that ...

    ReplyDelete
  6. Well I am not suited for being a waitress. I did it once for about 30 days and by the time I was done I had actually slapped a regular (he was in total violation of my personal space). I was done. It was like $2.30/hr plus tips. No thanks! I have personal space issues and do not want strangers touching me and well you can see where that is going!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Someone said it already, but I would be a terrible telemarketer! I hate talking on the phone, especially with people I don't know!! :)

  37. I've debated what would be the worst for me, and it's tied between waitress and police force. I'm not good at being friendly, or telling people what to do. Although, now that I think about it, nun might be even harder for old atheist me.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  50. Holy cow this is the coolest bag ever! My worst job would be sales or complaints handling. I don't like confrontation! I would also not be a good candidate for anything sporty. Or anything that required me to get up really early in the morning. Maybe it would be quicker for me to write what I would be ok at!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  81. Dental assistant or working in a home for elderly people. On the latter I would find it difficult because I get too attached to people and it would devastate me if anyone would die, and the dental assistant because of the blood and pulling teeth, I hate dentists... Anything medical really. I work in retail and that's ok, although the customers can drive you mental sometimes lol!
    Many thanks for the chance to win this cute and awesome bag!

    ReplyDelete
  82. There are many jobs I am not suited to do but LEAST suited for....nanny or housekeeper (outside of nun). Thanks for the chance to win a bag which will cause many people to giggle at the irony if I should get the chance to carry it.
