One Year of Blogging CANDY !

Hello Everyone,

It’s now been a year since I started this blog.

How crazy is that! One whole year!

As mentioned in my previous post, I received the new desk (on my 1 year anniversary) that my Mother had given me – the catch was that I had to help her move all her other stuff too!

My whole day was taken up with this task, and the whole next week just slipped by as I attempted to get organised in Girl World each night after work. 

Enough with the excuses – it’s simply taken me 2 weeks to get organised and now my Girl World is complete, and I have some Candy to share with you.

The Candy items are all from my stash, all in new condition, or made by myself in the case of the paper flowers, and I will post them wherever they need to go to get to the winner at my expense.

Here’s a pic of my new desk…

desk Pretty cool huh!

and here’s a pic of the Candy I have to give away to one lucky random winner, share it on your blog’s sidebar if you like.


What’s in the Candy, you ask?
  • 1 x Hot Pink Hat Box full of random bling, brads and a couple of homemade flowers.
  • 1 x Papermania Build a Cupcake Layered Die
  • 1 x Kaiser Craft sheet of Rub On borders.
  • 1 x Wooden Butterfly
  • 7 x Tags for you to decorate
  • 1 pack of Handmade Sticker embellies
  • 2 x sheets of Sentiment stickers.
  • 1 x sheet of mini alphabet stickers
  • 4 x sheets of “inchie” style picture stickers
  • 1 x Packet of Petaloo Flowers in Lime Green, White & polka dot.
All you need to do to win is…
jump a few hurdles ha no, seriously

1. follow me 
2. link up to Mr Linky widget below
3. Leave a comment - if you want to
4. Put me on your sidebar to advertise my candy - if you want to

[edit 25/11/11 - The only thing you need to do to win is get your name into Mr Linky & Follow me ]

Very simple really!

Trish (my very good friend from Trish & Treasure) is so very competitive, and she is very pleased with her Blog Stats and the number of followers she has. (at my last look it was 133)

At this point I would like to thank those of you who do follow me now – as I said to Trish in my own defence – at least my followers are genuinely following me because they like me. You are all welcome to enter this Candy :)

Trish had joined a linky party some time ago where everybody on the list had to follow everybody else and her follower numbers skyrocketed overnight. I deemed this as cheating at the time, but as they say – all is fair and love and war. So now it’s my turn to cheat!

I will draw my Blog Candy as soon as I have the same number of (or more) followers as my lovely cheating friend Trish
edited 21-11-11 - We'll draw it at 133 followers to be fair to Trish :)

ps. to her credit – she is now doing You Tube Tutorials and totally surpassing my abilities. Check her out if you get the chance, she’s amazing!

Well, without further ado,,, here is Mr Linky…
