"We would love to design a free print for you," said the lovely ladies from Pickle Pie in an email.
"Sure," I said. Well, you would, wouldn't you?
They asked me for a list of my favourite things. That took a few minutes. Well, the list itself hardly took any time, what I dithered about was whether the list would be what should be my favourites - world peace, fluffy bunnies, green vegetables - or what I really like.
The result is in the top picture and I adore it. It makes me smile each time I look at it. The other photos show some of their other prints.
Furthermore, the Pickle Pie ladies have solved my what to get as a present problems for the foreseeable future. They can do a print for every occasion, and the prices are very reasonable too.
And if that wasn't enough, they are offering a giveaway prize of a free 'loves' print. To enter have a look at the Pickle Pie site and then let me know BY EMAIL one of the things that Lizzy loves. Send your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org with PICKLE PIE in the subject line.
Competition closes on May 14, 2012 and all decisions are mine. The winning print is unframed.
