Introducing 'Donna Christine Designs' & Giveaway

I'd like to introduce you to a fabulous new business run by two mum's on the Gold Cost. I think you'll agree their clothing designs are gorgeous and well worth a look.   Donna Christine Designs is taking re-fashioning to new heights with their beautiful attention to detail and unique creative flair.

Donna Christine Designs  describes their clothing as re-designed, restored, reloved and reworked.  Breathing new life into old fashion with their own creative style.

All of their pieces are individually handmade in their Gold Coast workshop. They use original clothing and fabrics, giving new life to something that would normally be thrown away.

 Each recreated item has a history all of its own. The garments and fabrics used retain marks, holes or frays from their old life with an added twist of unusual buttons, buckles and beautiful embellishments giving an interesting and totally unique look.

The true beauty of this range is that no two pieces are ever the same so you can be sure you have an orginal masterpiece.

 You can find Donna Christine Designs on Facebook where new items are added regularly.  Check them out - I'm sure you'll be glad you did.

And now for the Giveway
In honour of the beautiful creative work done by the team at Donna Christine Designs I'm giving one reader a copy of  two (Yes Two!!)fabbo re-fashioning books.  There is Jayne Emerson's  New From Old   and Kathleen Maggio's Altered Clothing.  If you'd like to be in the draw to win all you need to is:

2)  Follow The Truth About Mummy.  (If you don't already.)

3)Leave me a comment and tell me which of the Donna Christine Designs creations  most appeals to you.  Please also leave a contact email or pop back to see if you win.
