1st Blogoversary Candy


July 31st is my 1st Blogoversary and I'm also celebrating 20,000+ hits to my blog already, something I never ever dreamed of in the first year, in fact at the beginning I thought 20,000 hits would take nearer 5 So I firstly want to say thank you to everyone who has taken their time to visit my blog and for all the wonderful comments, everyone has been so encouraging and it so warming to see there are so many wonderful people out there in blog land. On top of this I've made some wonderful friends over the past year and I have been lucky to meet a few too - Lorraine, Sue, Marcea, Nicola, Bev, Katy and of course not forgetting a very special buddy (who's also now my boss) Emma. It was wonderful meeting each and everyone one of you!!!

OK, so here's the candy....





There is a selection of ribbons and lace.

PM Scalloped Circle Album

Big and Juicy Ink Pad in Soothing Sunset

PM Pop-Up

Two PM Metal Accents

Pack of Flat Backed Pearls

Summer Brads Set

Papirloftet Green Gem Brads

Kanban A5 Double Vision Card

PM 6 x 6 Exquisite Paper Pack

This is to get you started, I will be adding one extra item every Thursday for the next 3 weeks finishing on the 30th July. The candy will then end on 00:01 (GMT) on the 31st July and the winner picked at random will be announced later on the 31st July.

To be in with a chance of winning my blogoversary candy all you need to do is leave me a comment and if you wish to spread the word about my candy on your blog then that would be great, but it's not a requirement nor is becoming a follower. You could also earn yourself a second entry, a few days ago I posted some pics of my new craftroom, I'd love to see your craft areas/space/rooms/table, wherever it's is that you craft (yep I'm nosey!!) so to get yourself a second entry into the candy you need to put up a photo(s) of your craft area, space or room on your blog so not only can I be nosey but so can the rest of the blog world, just leave me a link in your comment to your blog post showing the photo(s).
If you don't have a blog you can still enter the candy but please make sure you leave an email address so that I can contact you if you are the winner. I will post worldwide!!

I also want to say a big thank you to my wonderful followers so on the 31st July I will be doing a second draw from my followers list the prize will be some stamped images and a few secret goodies.

Please only enter ONCE or twice if you want a second chance and are providing a link to your blog with photo's of your craft area. All other duplicates will be removed.

Happy upcoming blogoversary Joanne - and I must say your craft room looks! We just moved to a new house and for the first time I have a craft room too! Unfortunately we had no left over furniture, so at the moment it's just full-o boxes, waiting for next week and a foraging trip to Ikea. Fingers crossed I'll get it done next week ^_^

And what a nice blog candy too! I added you in my candybar and will keep my fingers crossed ;)

See you in blogland,
