Its Time for More Blog Candy

I can't believe how many people have been looking at my little old blog over the last month, so I think its time for some more Blog Candy as I'm coming up to 10,000 HITS.......



All you have to do is leave me a comment with your thoughts on the following couple of questions......


1. How often do you visit Craft Blogs?.....


2. What else would you like to see on my blog?.....


I love hearing all your different views so have a go and leave me a comment to enter. I will run this until next Wednesday 17th October 09.00am, then I will pick a winner by random generator.


The items in the Blog Candy are: 1 pack of embellishment accessory set (new brad set from papermania) in purple, blues and pink, 1 pack of clear dovecraft clear stamps, 1 pack of sticky ribbons in the same colours as the brad pack and some gorgeous angelina fusible fibre.......





I had a very quick go at the 2,5,7,10 box on the resources section of splitcoaststampers site. It wasn't too hard to do, the instructions on there are very good.

I used the seeing spots wheel (on loan from Janette, thanks) using versamark on soft sky cardstock. The butterfly from the priceless stampset and the scallop punch and circle punch. The ribbon is blue bayou double stitched ribbon. I wish I had used that same ribbon for the top but I didn't make the holes big enough.......Doh!

Anyway if you fancy the look of the blog candy, don't forget to leave a comment before next wednesday.

Have a lovely evening.

Hi Jen,
As you know I visit several daily.
Some I look at in the morning and the others during the day while I am doing other things on the PC.
As to other things, I think its amazing whats on there already but I guess a few other altered items and more tutorials ???

Ohhh I'd love to be entered! Congrats on 10k. I visit you every day, sometimes twice a day. Same for all of my other crafty blogs. I just can't get enough. I wish I spent as much time creating as I do browsing!

I love everything you post. My only suggestion would be larger photos to see more details of your work.

Alex said...

Well, I visit crafting blogs every day, without fail!!!!! and a lot of them!!!!

I would love to see a picture tutorial on those scrummy boxes you make with the scalloped edges, ie each stage clearly photographed, cause I am super naff unless I see something like that set out in photo format!!!!! lol apart from that I love what you have on your blog, love all your cards you are making

tyreiko said...

My blogroll is over 100 crafty blogs long (yours included!) so I do visit them everyday! But it's fun to see what everyone is up to! I'd love to continue to see your lovely creations posted... I appreciate you sharing!

Congrats on the 10K milestone...what an acheivement...
I visit blogs daily, or as often as I get the opportunity. I stalk looking for inspiration...I love your card for the dorset stamper... the doodle stamp set is probably my all time fav set.... I love to see how other people use it. And as far as what I would like to see more of on a blog... I guess I would say altered items. I love being able to give people gifts that I have done for them so the more altered items, the more gift possibilities.
Thanks for allowing us the opportunity to play and win... :)

what a great blog you have, I love it.

Mary said...

I look at blogs, mainly yours and Janettes first thing every morning. Then several other times during the day in case I miss something and always last thing at night just to make sure. Maybe a few more tutorials or where we can find them would be nice and LOTS more Christmas cards of course.

SHAZGOO said...

Hi Jen
Congratulations Over 10,000 hits. WOW.
I only check out the half a dozen of my favourite blogs every day or so. Although I would like to spend more time looking, but if i do that, it leaves me even less time to craft!!!
I love you blog the way it is, great inspirational ideas, love all the extras like photo holders and gift boxes. Although you have done this previously already, I would like to see you use the same stamp set in a couple of different ways, colours & styles just to see what you do with them!! Also if you could bring us a new technique or gift item, save us hunting on SCS.
keep up the fabulous work.
Love & Hugs Sharon x

I am a blog junkie. I hate to think what I could get done if I didn't spend every day reading some of the MANY I subscribe to. I'm also a tutorial junkie, even if I've seen the technique before, so blog and "tute" away!! Thanks for the chance to play along.

Sonya said...

I visit blogs several times a day. I dream about them when I sleep. You have great projects. I like that you do more than cards. I have 80 teachers that I make things for and I have to keep things fresh and quick. I would like to see small gift-y things. Thank you for such great inspiration!

Hi Jen,

I stumbled upon your site today through Splitcoast. I am on there and my blog list daily (usually several times a day) and I need to tell you that you do beautiful work. It is very inspiring, it is so bright and beautiful. I will certainly be casing some of your work ans as I tell my stamping pals "casing is one of the sincerest forms of flattery". Thank you for taking the time to share your work with us.

The only thing that I could say that I would like to see on your site would be more of your work ;-)

1. How often do you visit Craft Blogs?..... I visit them everyday as I love the ideas that is on them. when you are in a rut or just need a little something for your card then going to these crafty blogs is great for ideas. then its like WOW!!! thats a great idea, I never thought of that!! :) so then you can sort of scraplift it to your card or layout. or whatever project you are working on.


2. What else would you like to see on my blog?.....tutorials, altered items,ideas for storage,

Mikaela said...

Hi Jenny,

Despite not having my craft stuff to hand right now, I still like to visit Craft Blogs (including yours, Janettes and others) on a daily basis, unless work gets in the way. I feel that even without being able to create right now, my mind is filling up with a candy shop of ideas which I can't wait to try out.

I love the crisp photo's that you offer and the assortment of ideas. Some really beautiful ideas and not just cards. Maybe a few more detailed photo's to assist in step by step guidance for the more advanced items.

congratulations on the 10k milestone and the opportunity to take part in your competition.

Hugs
Mikaela
