Belated Thanks

Back in December 2008 I did a giveaway and the winner was Funkymonkey.

She said she wanted to send me a 'little' something by way of a thank you for winning. Well, the 'little' something turned out to be a set of lovely tin Christmas tree decorations and the most beautifully made button necklace that she had made herself. The necklace is wired and includes an array of unusual buttons and beads and is fastened with a fine satin ribbon. Thank you Tracey for the time and effort you put in to making my gift. It was truly appreciated.

I would also like to say thank you to those of you who have put themselves down as followers of my blog. I know that I may not have the most riveting blog around but hope that it contains something of interest to you from time to time. I am hoping to feature a lot more crafty bits and pieces over the coming months. That is if I ever get around to actually DOING something rather than just THINKING about it!


  1. The great thing about blogging is that there are no rules!

    Its not generally just the blog that keeps people interested, its the author too!

    We all have different strengths and weaknesses.

    I love your blog especially pics of gizmo as I dont have a cat anymore.

  4. What lovely gifts!!!
    I think we all probably worry at times about are blog , I think that is the lovely thing about reading other peoples blogs seeing what other people do and make.
    I love your blog how it is, and as for craft I make know where near as much as I should do, so you are not alone.
    Take care…love Lou xxx :0)

  7. Your blog isn't boring at all!!! I love popping in and seeing what you have been up to :) I think we all go through little "crises of confidence" about what we write on our blogs but like summerfete said the great thing about blogging is hat there are no rules :) There is an award waiting for you at my blog if you fancy popping in :) xxx

  8. your blog is lovely (as is your gorgous cat)not boring at all. It's lovely to see how others spend their days and like others have said it can't be so bad or why would we keep coming back.
