SpReAd The Love Gives Back Week 2: Guy of Gisborne

It’s been a crazy week here so I’m a lot later getting this up than I wanted but I wanted to give you all a look at this week’s prize.

Multi-strand bracelet that does say Guy of Gisborne in there somewhere.

What makes this Guy-related is the text on the paper beads, verses I – XXXIX of “Robin Hood and Guy of Gisborne” from The Oxford Book of Ballads (Arthur Quiller-Couch, ed., 1910) which you can find here.

While all of the beads are strung there’s no clasp on it yet. When we choose a winner tomorrow that person is going to need to measure their wrist and then email me the size they come up with (I’ll give you directions if you need them so it isn’t too tight). We have just over 24 hours left for this giveaway so if this is the one you want comment with a kindness below or via the contact form on the About page. Have you gotten yours in yet?

SpReAd The Love Gives Back Week 2: Guy of Gisborne

Our first week of STL Gives Back was amazing! Thank you all so much for all the kindnesses that you submitted and, in case you missed it, our winner was Kitty who’ll be getting a paperback copy of In Consequence by Trudy Brasure. Thanks to everyone who entered and a special thanks to Trudy for donating a copy of her novel!

Our giveaways are all fan made items inspired by some of Richard Armitage’s most popular characters. This week’s giveaway, a jet and paper bead multi-strand bracelet, was inspired by Guy of Gisborne and is handmade by me. I’m still finishing it but as a preview, these are some of the materials I’m working with.

Jet beads and parchment paper. Hmmm, how could that say Guy of Gisborne?

Okay, again leave a comment with a kindness that you’ve done or that’s been done for you and your name will be entered into this week’s drawing. Additionally, each kindness generates a $1US matching donation up to $100 to one of the charities supported by Richard Armitage via JustGiving.  We’ll draw a winner on Friday at 5PM Eastern Time. Ready? Go!
