Code RED, Competition and the Creative Artisan – Bendigo, Victoria!
Playing the tourist on a 3 day Bendigo bender re-awakened my latent gold-mining tendencies, suppressed for too long following a total lack of disappointing result in the creek running through our property.
But the Bendigo region’s got the golden goods! The world’s biggest alluvial gold nugget – the Welcome Stranger – was found nearby. With a 71+ kg (3123 oz) record to beat, the stakes AND incentives are high!
So while strolling through the excellent Bendigo CBD’s Rosalind Park, finding a hunk of melodramatic marble (albeit beautifully sculpted) instead of a large gold nugget was somewhat anticlimactic. Apparently a previous mayor thought a statue of a thinly clad youth fighting off two wild creatures yet to be found in the Aussie bush would make a fitting reward for the citizens of Bendigo.
Although the marble monolith was superbly disguised as a gift, I for one would have preferred a more practical present – like a share of the gold revenue, or a complimentary gold nugget! Or even a selection of the wonderfully artistic and creative Journey Jottings products I spotted in Bendigo’s Visitor Information Centre.
And as if she’d read my mind, my favourite Creative Artisan, the FAAAAABULOUS Linda, owner and creator of Journey Jottings Map Journals and Accessories donated a prize pack of her all-Aussie products for one lucky reader to win!!
All because Bendigo is just one of SIX Aussie HOT Spots featuring in my most recent guest post on Linda’s Blog (yes folks, she’s a sucker for punishment …).
SO … to be in the running to win 2 Notebooks (pix below), a Puzzle Postcard and a Sydney Map Magnet, all you have to do is:
- Read my guest post on Linda’s Blog HERE; and
- Return back here to THIS post on MY blog; and
- Leave a comment telling me a) which of the 6 destinations you’d most like to visit AND b) why you’d like to win!
The entry that makes me laugh the most will win – from anywhere in the world!!
You have until midnight, Wednesday, 8th May (Australian Eastern Standard Time).
All I need to do now is disguise my Google details so I can win it for myself …
But that would be wrong …
Because there can be only ONE winner!
The competition is now over, but the Journey Jottings FINE products are still available on http://journeyjottings.com/
Why not treat yourself – AND solve all your Birthday & Christmas gift dilemmas at the same time!!
Be a winner either way with Journey Jottings and RedzAustralia!
