My photo's will soon be tinch'd on my magnetic wall, my colours will revolve around greens and browns and perhaps just a tinch of red. However, if I am lucky enough to win a magnetic alphabet soup set, I am off to buy a tinch more magnetic paint and blast my daughter's bedroom wall with colour!

5.Anita Murrell

My little boy Bryn

The girls' rooms have a tinch of Tinch to make it feel more homely but I'm sure they would love the alphabet soup to add more colour to their wall.

10.M Norman

The only thing comparable to a tinch of colour is a child's smile, it lights up the room!

11.Sarah T

I wish I were a tinch more creative when thinking up a sentence with the word 'colour' in it ;)

Rooms can look duller without a tinch of colour, and what could be better than many a letter.


My little girl deserves Tinch to help her learn her alphabet, and about colour - your gorgeous designs would brighten both her room and her mind! What more could a little girl and a Mum ask for!

My world was a tinch grey, until I discovered Helen's wallscapes to colour my day!

30.Susan Domett (3rd prize)

Her walls are white and bare

Oh what could I put there.

No colour to be seen

Creative I've not been.

My girl is soon off to school

The alphabet would be cool.

A little tinch up will delight,

Emily's smile will be bright!

31.Nardia Cooper

Potatoes are white, Sausages Grey

I need a tinch more colour to cook every day!


The alphabet soup would add more than a tinch of colour to my fridge!


My wall is bare and my child's a grinch, pretty please, would you colour me Tinch!


For best results combine a dash of colour, a tinch of glue, a smidgen of magnetism and a smattering of small children.


With a little pinch of tinch one has a tinch of amazing colour!


A Tinch of color can bring me a lot of smiles.

37.Tina Bothma

Just a wee tinch of colour helps the learning go the most delightful way :o) (sung somewhat tunefully to the spoonful of medicine tune!


Its been a dreary day in the land of the great white cloud, my only wish is there was a tinch more colour in my life - oh wait there could be if only I won a magnetic alphabet soup set then every day would be a tinch more colouful and all the better for it.

39.Danielle Graham

Tinch is a pinch of something so great,

Gotta get in before it finishes at eight, :-p

Alphabet colours would make a good learning tool,

so my girl can do the best at school.

40.Warren Crabtree

(1st prize)

Colour and design,

and all things sublime.

That's what a tinch is made of.


You colour our world tinch,

Rhyming this should be a synch,

I'd like a taste of Alphabet soup,

To help our large troupe!

42.Debbie-Lee Sorensen

A tinch of love, a tinch of joy, a tinch of colour and everything is a-ok with the world. X

A tinch of this and a tinch of that and you wil come out with a colourful stew!

44.Marsha Bennett

Lately I've felt like such a grinch - I think that I need just a tinch of colour, style, to make me smile!

Just a Tinch-ful of colour

when you decorate your room.

In the most delightful way!

47.Kim Gregory

I love colour and I love tinch, so that fabulous prize i'm sure I will clinch.

48.Kirsty Ren

Our current alphabet is pretty bland, and keeps falling off the fridge with its crappy $2 magnets. The beautiful Tinch Alphabet would bring a lovely tinch of colour to our new house. I'm not creative or poetic, so my entry is terrible, but I'm a huge fan of Tinch and would love to have alphabets to go along with my frabulous tinchy lovebirds. Pick me!
