Blog Candy.........Giveaway...

I would like to thank everyone who takes the time to read my little blog, I have made some wonderful blog friends along the way and love been part of the blog community.
I wrote my first post on 25th January 2010,who'd have thought 20 months later I'd be writing my 260th today and have over a hundred following me,which I'm thrilled with and really appreciate.
Anyway, I thought it was time I did a Blog Giveaway so to be in with a chance to win the blog candy below all you have to do is leave me a comment telling me what your favourite hobby/ pastime is.
If I could only pick one ,it would be card making even though I do love crochet and taking photo's nearly as much.

Blog Candy 
 my handmade pin cushion,a piece of pretty fabric,crocheted flowers,
notebook,paper flowers and a sweet metal hanging bird.

BTW, you don't have to become a follower to enter, if you want to spread the word though about the giveaway,please do.You have until next Monday, 9pm GMT+1. I am going to have a go at using a number generator to pick a winner but if I can't work out how to do it, I will go the old fashioned route and write all your names down on a piece of paper and get my baby niece to pick one on Tueday.

Yummy....a truly delicious giveaway! I LOVE your crochet flowers, they are super cute. I spend a lot of time sewing, so I suppose it must be my favourite hobby...then again, there is scrapbooking, thrifting and re-purposing...it's very tricky to pin one down! I will pop a link to your giveaway on my blog too...lovely goodies that I'd love to be entered for! Tania x

Congrats Debs!! and we've been friends for most of that time too!! Love your giveaway things ... so pretty and very generous ... Well you know I love card making ... but I love to make home decor items, 3d things and altering ... more than making cards ... I guess creating something from nothing is my passion ...

Linda R. said...

Well girly looks like you got an awesome giveaway going on.. I have really enjoyed your blog and am very happy we found each other..

Happy Monday to you!!

karisma said...

Oooh I don't think I could pick one, cross stitch, knitting and crochet are all pretty number one for me. I go through phases of really sticking to one or the other for a while but always feel the need to fit them all in occasionally. I also like to sew and get creative in other areas, painting, drawing, pastels and journal making but with everything else don't generally get the time. LOL Happy Monday to you too! Hope you have a beautiful week! Hugs xoxox

karisma said...

PS...I am so loving that pin cushion! Its absolutely gorgeous!

Ira said...

Yes, isn't it wonderful to meet new people in blog land? Sharing ideas and seeing other people's creative efforts? Awesome giveaway, you have made some fine stuff here Deb! Oh yes, before I forget: my favourite past time is crafting in general, reading, gardening, playing with my two nieces, cooking and baking, oh and my husband, of course :-) Have a great evening, Ira x

HillyT said...

It's hard to choose my favourite craft but I'm going to go with crochet, I'm quite new to it really but it's so absorbing. I'm enjoying your blog!

Romi and Bob said...

I forgot to enter my favourite hobby. It is of course sewing. Second after that is reading. xx

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Congrats.... and I am so glad that I found you my friend!
I love all kinds of craft, but so involved with paper crafting now that I hardly have any time for sewing, cross-stitching and other needle work, I still have projects "half-way done" laying all around the house. LOL!
So sweet of you to share your beautiful work!

ALISON said...

beberouge said...

Oh my goodness what an awesome give away. I love reading your blog and that pin cushion is just to die for, I need a new pin cushion too. I just have to enter so my favorite hobby is crochet because it opened up the crafty world to me and after teaching myself to crochet I have learnt to sew and embroider and recently to knit. Thanks for the great blog. xx

Hmmm, I love all my crafty pursuits but I'm going to say crochet because its seems to be the thing I choose to do the most. You are making me interested in paper crafts though.....

My favourite hobby would be crafting with kids. I love the look of achievement on their faces when they see what they have made.

What cool candy, I would love to win! Thanks for the chance! My favorite hobby is scrapbooking, but I'm also getting into the cardmaking, and I've dabbled in knitting and crocheting, although without much success. I hope to one day knit a pair of leg warmers! Hugs, Roxy.
