Birthday Candy and Huge Thanks

Remember me???

Ohh it feels like I haven't blogged for ages.


So, first things first.

I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who gave the craft sale a toot xxxx We had a really good day - there were between 50 and 70 people there. I knew it would be a long shot putting it on the blog as we are all over the country but there was at least 1 lady there who had read about it in Blogland (and not on my blog) so it did work. Eloise was thrilled it went so well and was really grateful. We sold quite a bit of stuff but it barely put a dent in it all. So there may be another one in the new year.



I have to say sorry for being a bad bad blogger and for being awol but I got home on Saturday after the sale and within an hour I started to feel ill - really properly ill. I ended up going to bed and have only really been up and about properly today. I tell you, I would not wish this on anyone and I reckon it was flu. Richard had it and I suspect that poor Emma will be next as she has the sore throat and aching that it starts with. Ohh dear!!!!! I think this has lurked in my system for months though as I have not been 100% for a good while now. I

Ok, some of you know this next bit. This coming Monday, I have 'one of those' birthdays - ohh I can barely say it but it is half a century - I am vain enough to care that I am becoming an old fart!!!!!. Shallow I know, but I am really feeling old farty at the mo as well, cry cry xx.
Now I know that the alternative is worse and considering that my sis died aged 46 I should not moan. But I am moaning. Well not so much moaning but wailing like a banshee to be truthful.!!!! I am sooo not looking forward to it, and will be dragged there on Monday kicking and screaming and fighting it every inch of the goddam way.


Soooooo

I thought a bit of birthday candy was in order and I thought I would do a little mixture of stuff.


So here's what's on offer ....





Completely gorge new Sarah Kay stamp - fab for Valentine's Day xxxx






A pack of Anna Griffin papers - 12 sheets of paper and 12 sheets of cardstock (English Garden Palette)



800 Papermania brads in a neat little caddy, a pack of 5 3D Crystal Neon Lacquer Pens and a really arty stamp.

Plus a £10 Poppicrafts Gift Voucher to top it all off. :))))

How does that sound?

So all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is to leave a comment here and mention my blog candy on your blog and that lovelies, is that!!! I will do a random generator thingie to pick a winner on 20th December and this is open to everyone and not just UK bloglies. I will arrange for the candy to be shipped after Christmas Day so it won't get lost in our wonderful postal system lol xx and I'll leave a shortened version of this post at the top until 20th.

As it's been so flippin long since I made a card, I'm just off for a blog hop which will hopefully give me a bit of much needed inspiration. I've really missed seeing everyone's stuff but I haven't had the energy to take to top of me pens let alone colour anything with them. It's a shame!!!!.
Have a great evening and hugs to all xxxxxx

Oh goodness Dawny!! I'm sooooo sorry you've been feeling so poorly! You're not a bad blogger! You've just been living your life, which does every now and then interfere with our crafting world. :) don't feel so bad about the birthday! I hit that one a couple years ago, and it's really not all that bad. It's kind of fun being able to blame a lot of screw ups on my age! HAHA! Take care of yourself and don't kick and scream too hard on your birthday!! big hugs!!!

Cheryl said...

Hi Dawny....now you listen here, age is all in the mind.....I will be sixty in two and a bit years time and I feel years younger......
Every day is a bonus......enjoy it......and remember to feel good in your skin......

Lecture over.....you get better soon and start to think positive....

Ikki said...

Wow, I think this is a great candy and thanks for the chance to win. Hope you're soon feeling more chipper and if it any consolaton, when my hubby reach 39 he sulked for the next 12 months. Like you, he didn't like the number. BUT, on the day, friends visiting - a nice meal - a few drinks (well to be honest quite a few) it was okay. It's just a number - what matters is what you have around you and it sounds as if you surrounded by good things. Enjoy the day and then start crafting again. Not forgetting of course to share your cards with us. Happy Birthday, ooxx ikki

Lyndsey Marie said...

Hi Dawn, thats some fab candy you are giving away, I wil put a link on my blog for you. Hope you feel better soon, its definately something nasty going round. Half the customers that have been in the shop today have beeb ill over the last week or so. And I wouldn't worry about your birthday my stepmom is 50 and she knocks spots of some of the younger ladies. At least when you do something a bit odd which most of us do at some time you can blame it on a senior moment!!!!!. Happy Birthday enjoy every minute of it.

Dawny, happy birthday! You're just a baby compared to me - I'll be 55 in January! We're just like fine wine - we get better, not older! I recently discovered cardmaking (in addition to my previous scrapbooking) and I love it. Thanks for the opportunity to win some special scrapping /card-making goodies! All best wishes for a happy birthday, a Happy Christmas, and a wonderful 2009!

Since you aren't were happy about your birthday, I won't congratulate you. But a verse of anonymus author pop in to my head: Life is not measured by the number of braths we take, but by the moments that take our brath away. And since your blog did take my brath away, for that I congratulate you.
