My Birthday, Blogaversary and Thank You Candy


Good morning my lovely crafty friends and followers.

Today I am celebrating my blog birthday and in a couple of weeks I will be celebrating my own birthday.

It was exactly 6 years ago today that I posted my very first blog post and to date I have posted 1630 posts - including this special one :o)

I can't believe where the past 6 years have gone!!!
So much has happened in my life during this time - most if it has been truly wonderful.

I have made (and met) a number of inspirational friends, been extremely lucky to be or have been on some amazing Design Teams and more recently have had the fabulous opportunity to design for Papercraft Inspirations magazine - a dream that I never really imagined would come true.

And through it all I have had some amazing friends follow my crafty exploits and take time to leave some lovely encouraging comments.

I wish I could send something special to each and every one but that might just make me bankrupt hahaha!!!!

So instead I have the following Blogaversary, Birthday and Thank You candy available as a 


from me to you for all your continued support and encouragement.

Candy #1
A Selection of Sizzix Flower Dies

Candy #2
A Gorjuss 12x12 Paper Pack and a Gorjuss Stamp Set

Candy #3
A Selection of Hobby House Elisabeth Bell 'Quiet Moments' Toppers and Hobby House Embellishments

If you would like the chance to win one of the above parcels simply add your name to the link below - indicating which candy you would prefer and post a picture on your sidebar with a link back to my blog please.

This candy is for my loyal followers and friends only - it would be lovely if you wanted to start following me because you like what I do - but please no candy only followers thank you :o)
I will post overseas.

I will draw 3 winners from the entries on my birthday - 1st May and will post the winner details on my blog.

Many many thanks as always for your friendship and support.

Have a fabulous day.

Wowee 6 years and a lot of blog posts! I know exactly how you feel I have been blogging for exactly a year now and just about to offer some celebration candy of my own this week actually! Blogging has been the best thing I ever did, I get some much enjoyment in here and like you say there are so many wonderful people always willing to give a nice comment and admire each other's work! This blogland really is something special :-) it's definetely helping me through a very tough time in my life being severely ill and it's lovely to hear how much it means to other crafters too! So happy anniversary and birthday!
I'd love to win candy #2 please :-)
