Welcome to First Fridays Find and Giveaway for July. A monthly feature where I’ll post some fun, inspirational or useful finds and also offer a fabulous giveaway from myself, sponsors or the universe in general!

I just popped in from the sun and beach to list this months FIND & Giveaway. (sitting in a wifi enable bar with a cold Spanish beer – I could get used to this!). Ive been giving myself a holiday from computers and blackberrys and getting back into podcasts whilst in this beautiful place watching the world go by. CraftCast with Alison Lee is something I found a while ago and have been listening to eversince. Last Sunday I shared the “Lady in Spain” song which I first heard on one of Alisons podcasts, it was played on the episode where she interviewed Kelly Rae Roberts who many of us know and love. (cannot believe flying lessons ends tomorrow!)

When I first started listening to the podcasts (you can also subscribe to them in itunes), I didnt know many of the creatives Alison was interviewing and the beauty of these resources is you can just go back time after time as your own knowledge grows and awareness of artists does too. (im sure you know many of them already!) Enjoy.

First Friday Giveaway
As I am still in Spain soaking up the silence, sea air and sand, I wanted to share some of that with you. So this months giveaway will be a 11×8.5 glossy print of something I’ve photographed whilst taking time out. (photos to choose from will be revealed on Tuesday!). To win, all you need to do is add a comment below, adding a recent find of yours or for this month something you have done to completely switch off, rest and recharge. Winner will be chosen at random on Tuesday.

I’m back off to sit under my umbrella and watch the sun glisten on the waves….ahhhhh. Enjoy your weekend all (Happy 4th to all of you in the USA).
