Welcome to my creative online journal

Wednesday, 9 February 2011


I'm very pleased to notice that I have reached 100 followers today! Thank you so much for following me and a very warm welcome to all my recent new followers.  To celebrate this ocassion I'm doing a mini blog giveaway which will be open exclusively to the 100 of you that are on my followers list as of this post today (9th Feb).

This is what I'm offering:

1. A brand new but backdated issue of Craft Stamper magazine (Nov 2009) including the free clear stamp that came with it (still attached to front).  It is of snowflakes and a label saying 'Just for You'. Articles inside include how to make a retro minibook and Liquid applique.

2. Another brand new recent issue (October 2010) of Craft Stamper magazine including the free clear stamp (use with an acrylic block) 'Time to Celebrate' in a circle.  This is a very versatile stamp that can be used all year round.  Amongst the articles inside is one on how to make a bracelet out of Precious Metal Clay.

3. A set of two very-difficult-to-get-hold-of (in the UK) Fine Black Sharpie Markers that won't bleed through paper:

4. In honour of the upcoming ocassion, Valentine's Day, a set of assorted coloured glittered mini heart beads from Crafty Bitz that would make a lovely piece of jewellery!

5. Also Valentine's related, a set of mini pink pegs with felt heart embellishments that I have subtley glittered.

6. In the background is a new ink pad, a Tim Holtz distress ink pad in Brushed Corduroy (a medium shade of brown).


7. A 6x8" booklet of Beatrix Potter papercrafts. This includes Decorative Papers, Sentiments, Toppers and Borders all on the theme of the cute nostalgic characters created by Beatrix Potter.

 I'm sorry not to be showing you a new craft for a little while, I have been dabbling in my craft room (just playing with my recent purchases) but I still have a very poorly left eye.  I've been to the Doctors and have been given some cream (its around the eye) but its not working!  I look as though I've been in a fight with Mike Tyson which is why I made this useful purchase today:

Dark Sunglasses!

Thanks for looking, good luck if you are taking part in the draw for followers,

Thanks for the chance to win some candy. I found it really hard to choose something, there is so much good stuff, but I opted for the fine line sharpie markers and the distress ink. Dawn x

Hi this is really kind of you to run a giveaway - my fav item has to be the mini pink pegs with felt heart embellishments that you have subtley glittered, this is because you have also found time to personalise the item for your giveaway.

I have also loved your calender and the shrink plastic valentine oh and the "squashed boiled sweet" lol

Woohoo, well done on getting to 100 hun!!! I couldnt possibly pick a fav craft from your blog as I'd be here all day, I find all your "playing" with techniques very inspiring, so I'll have to pick the sharpie pens, great for doodling :)

Fancy walking round with a puffed up eye, or even sunglasses on, anyone dare accuse your OH yet? Hope it improves soon xx

OOoooh congrats on reaching 100 followers, no surprise as you feature so many interesting aspects of crafting here. I love popping in to see what you're up to (tho don't often comment!!)I think my fave thing from all your give away goodies is probably the distress ink pad really want to start trying out using those!

Thanks for the congrats crafters, I see the Sharpies are popular as I thought they might be!

I must admit the sunglasses looked better yesterday when the sun was out, today I just got odd looks - as if I was trying to hide something! K, My OH has a good alibi, he's in Germany! ;-) I suspect the bad eye was caused by my doing too much late night interneting!

Congratulations on 100 followers, and thank you for the chance to win a fab giveaway, I think my favourite has to be the Beatrix Potter set, because it is a favourite with my darling granddaughter. xxx

Congratulations on the 100 followers Nicky :)

I have to say my favourite thing you've made is that scrapbook page of yourself with all the flourishes. Really sticks in my mind! I'm also loving your altered book and your calendar... of and your ever changing tree...

As for your giveaway - um... I think one of the magazines as I know a lot of bloggers that have been featured in it at one time or another and I keep meaning to check it out but have never got round to it :) Thank you for the lovely chance to win and I do hope your eye clears up soon, how aggravating :(

Congrats on the 100 followers! I think my favourite is the magazines. I often get stuck for ideas and am realising that i don't know a lot of techniques so they help give me a nudge in the right direction!
