My 1st Blogaversary!

Candy now closed.

A warm and special WELCOME as TODAY (Sept 10th) is my 1st Blogaversary!

A heartfelt THANK-YOU goes to all those who have left lovely compliments and followed loyally over the past year. Your presence is the reason for my continued blogging and has made whole heaps of a difference to the enjoyment crafting brings me.

To celebrate in blogging tradition, I am sharing some 'stash'. To have a chance to win the candy all you need do is:
a) Comment at the end of this post and
b) Place a picure of my candy on your blog sidebar with a link back to my blog
c) To win, you don't have to be a follower but IF you like my work and would like to sign up to follow then that would be terrific.

'The Candy'

I am happy to ship worldwide. 'Candy-only blog' comments will be deleted. Draw will stay open until midnight September 30th. The winner will be drawn at random thereafter.

Good Luck everyone and thank-you again for making my experience in 'blogland' such a very happy one.

Nicola x

  4. Happy, happy first anniversary Nicola!! Though I am a follower, I also know that there are times when I don't seem to get around and leave comments to everyone whom I would like to visit, so I want to apologize for that, time just always seems to run away with me. I really want you to know that when I am here today, it is not just for the candy, but to say thank you for sharing your beautiful work and for being such a loyal visitor to my blog.

    I will certainly share your candy on my blog and I wish you many further years of joyful blogging and creating!!

  6. What a lush collection of goodies Nicola, will post on my sidebar now. And happy Bloggaversary.

    As Astrid said, sometimes I too can be a bad blogger, not usually through choice just because bits of me have their days when they fail to work as a team. And I think I might have missed the one below so apols for that.

  13. Hello Nicola
    Happy Blogaversary!
    This is a very special place where we come to connect with others who share a passion, share their art and their hearts and I am so glad I am part of it. To be able to view art such as what you share with us, well that brings joy to my life.
    The first year is surely the most special - I wonder if you were like me, I was a reluctant blogger and so sure I wouldn't last one month!
    I am a Follower and of course I will add to my sidebar.
    The goodies are completely and utterly gorgeous, those stamps are so WOW as are the flowers and ribbons.
    Thank you for this wonderful opportunity and to you, thank you for bringing such beautiful art into our lives.
    Wishes
    Lynne
    P.S. Will chat soon :)
