Last week, when I was away on holiday, my blog hit counter tipped over to 123456, a poignant figure at which I intended to do a giveaway, a bit of blog candy, a little thank you to all those visitors who bothered to stop at my place. With being away from home and only having intermittent internet connection, it came and went.
Today, Tuesday, is my birthday so I decided it should be now!
I have not yet decided what I'll give but I think I will make something special and also find some nice crafty goodies.
Maybe a mystery package would be intriguing!?
Just leave a comment if you'd like to be in on it with a chance of winning something from me and maybe over the next couple of days I will be able to fully advertise the package, meanwhile.... take a chance!!
Everyday, I notice on my live feed the range of visitors from all over the world and love to identify the countries by the flags. I often see return visitors and wonder who they are and why they choose to stop by my blog.
One visitor in particular pops in almost everyday, from Mountain View in California, and browses through my blog archives. Whilst I am so pleased that someone thinks there is enough of interest to drop by so often I also love to imagine that I might possibly give them some inspiration.
I hope one day for Mountain View to leave a comment and I'd love to say a personal thank you to them for all their visits but I have hesitated in writing this incase I frighten them away and no longer see them on the list.
Please keep calling! (but I'd love to know who you are)
My crafting this week has been to finish the tag flag book that we did in Gill's workshop at Victoria Stampers before I went away. There it is in the middle of the table tied with a red ribbon. It was such a good day even if I did have to rush home and start packing my suitcase.
I'll post it in detail soon.
My desk below is covered in all my lovely birthday cards and lots of crafty gifts which I have yet to be put on display as I've been out all day. I've had a lovely trip shopping in town and we had lunch in Jamie Oliver's Italian Restaurant.
Call in on our lovely instigator Julia at her stamping ground blog if you'd like to see an ever increasing and ever amazing range of the World's craft desks.
Here are my super hand crafted birthday cards but I received lots more fabulous shop bought ones and a couple of gorgeous Jacky Lawson egreetings too from Dolores and Alison CB. Thanks to everyone for all your wishes, they are all really appreciated.
