Sometime at the beginning of the summer, I found a catalogue lying on our doormat. It was unlike any other I'd seen since the "Clothkits" brochures of the '70's, with line drawings of the clothes on offer, alongside the photographs of the dozens of possible combinations. It was by Gudrun Sjoden
and although I didn't buy anything, I didn't throw the catalogue away, which is always a sign I'm thinking about it. So when I discovered we were going to be close to an actual bricks and mortar Gudrun store, in Berlin, in August, I had to have a look around. And take pictures. I couldn't resist.
And, no, I didn't buy anything; though I did try on a tunic and I brought home the autumn catalogue, which has been in my bedside reading pile ever since.
I liked my Gudrun photos so much that I decided to use them for a Get It Scrapped sketch challenge; and my page appeared on their blog last week (details of the other pages and the sketch are here), round about the same time that I got an email

Gudrun was tempting me, with a voucher and a gift..mmm...I could just have a look. No! Mustn't! Too many other things to buy right now.
Until today: this very day, when I had already planned to post my page, I received another email:
Hi Sian, take 20% off our tunics
It was a done deal. Gudrun even let me combine my offers and then sent me a note
You have a colourful parcel to look forward to!
I have! Forget the fact that I bought the grey one! Maybe next time I'll go bold. But first? Might need to add a postscript to that journaling..
