It's blog candy on my work desk this Wednesday but lots of different things on the desks of the world.
Each week I join in one of the biggest blog hops in blogdom courtesy of Julia's grandiose idea that she started over four years ago. It's still going strong with almost 200 desks bared and as many souls bared too. If you want to attempt to spy on them all just call in on the Stamping Ground.
A couple of weeks ago I mentioned some blog candy here (in celebration of my June birthday and reaching 123,456 hits on my blog) but I've been so busy I apologise that I haven't managed to show the prize goodies before today.
I had thought to make it a mystery prize but I managed to get another Artists Travel Book, that so many of you coveted, when I showed mine, last week.
Here's a tempting glimpse of my candy but there will be a few more treats included and something hand made by me.
For now, there's a plate of beautifully detailed Christmas Stamps, a Crafty Individual vintage lady tag stamp, 3 rolls of washi tape, a border mask of gears, and a sheet of raised pearly dots.
The main item, to be won in the draw, is a good quality 7x10 inch Daler Rowney spiral bound multi media art journal, with magnetic clasp and a paintbrush inside.
Everyone is welcome to enter, just leave a comment to say you'd love the goodies.
There will be an extra entry for followers.
I love quotes, so if you leave me one of your favourite quotes you can have an extra entry, (and I can use your quote!) and everyone else can enjoy reading them. They're great for journalling too.
Here's one from me......
"In a world where you can be whatever you want,
Please, only follow me if you are interested in popping in, now and then, because you are genuinely interested in my blog and not just because of the candy.
My intention is to give this chance of a treat as a thanks to all the people who spare time to visit my blog as I do appreciate every visit and every comment.
Another one of my collected quotes..
"What if the Okey Kokey is what it says
and that's really what it's all about"
I received some more super ATCs this week and thanks go to Sandy Leigh in America who sent a lovely little card and stitched her tiny treasure for me...
Thanks also go to Ros C who sent a triple treat all the way from Australia, a beautiful card and TWO ATCs. I love them all but I would love to get my sticky fingers on that globe die on the right. I'm wondering who makes it.
This week I surprised some blogging buddies with a flag tag album in which to store their WOYWW ATC swaps. They have already been received by them so I can now share them here.
All very quickly made from recycled cereal packets and scrapbook papers.
Lots of co-ordinating pages inside for all those treasured ATCs.
I know, as you are all so eagle eyed, there will be comments about my gorgeous turquoise nail polish...... I've bought several bottles of this brand in different colours because it stays on so long without chipping. So before you ask, it's Miss Sport (Quick Dry) by Coty and it's only £1.99 a bottle and at the moment from Boots the second bottle is half price ... so 2 for £3. That's this weeks bargain for you!
Pop over to LillyBo quilts blog to see the latest consignment of super quilts from WOYWWer, Kate P's craft group in Spain. I'm thrilled, you will be thrilled and, most of all, so will all the children who receive them!
