I’m lucky enough to live by the seaside. Always have and probably always will.
I grew up in Sunderland – the city by the sea – and we’d regularly walk down to Roker or Seaburn for some sea air, a bit of rockpooling and some fish and chips.
Watching the waves crash against Roker Pier is still one of my favourite things to do.
Now I live in South Shields and we’re literally a stone’s through away from some of the best beaches in the world, in my opinion. Give me Sandhaven over the Algarve any day!
Are you spending summer at the seaside?
If you’re heading for the coast over the holidays, I’ve got the perfect thing to get you in the mood!
I’m delighted to have been given a papercutting subscription box from Embellish to give away – and the theme is ‘Oh I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside’.
I tried papercutting myself for the first time before Christmas and it’s my intention to get back into over the summer as I found the process really enjoyable.
The Embellish Box is a themed subscription box for papercutters, containing papercutting templates, backing papers and themed gifts.
Amy Purdie, who lovingly curates each box, said: “This box has a seaside theme, so is all about sunshine, sand, strolling along the prom, seagulls and fishing. The perfect box to cut over the summer, especially if it isn’t as sunny as you’d hoped!”
The prize includes a cutting mat, a handle and a pack of blades, so the winner has everything they need to get started.
All you have to do is fill in the Rafflecopter entry form below. The closing date is Friday, August 4.
