Well bloggers, it seems that once again it was not to be..... after staying up all night to resize my photo's and try uploading them to The Greeting Farm gallery I managed to miss out in loading my images in time!!!! Boooo Hoooo!! I am so disappointed. It is now 1.10 pm and I still haven't slept and I have no chance of winning the prize now (not that I probably ever did, however a chance would have been nice) I am going to bed....Better luck next time I suppose. At least I got one stage further this time and actually posted something even if it was in every section but the one it was supposed to be in!!
Good night all.....I am off to cry myself to sleep. :'-s
Update: I have managed to post my images and submit my entry, whooohooo so happy! Fingers crossed.
Good morning bloggers, we as I have now written on a number of occasions I have been intending to enter a challenge for a couple of months now. Well that day has arrived. There is finally a challenge for which the prize is absolutely too good to resist!! If you wonder over to The Greeting Farm's blog you will find the challenge details. Basically the challenge was to create a gift for a hostess to give to her guests. Since the challenge was set before Christmas it gave me an idea as to a nice little gift that I could give my guests following my Christmas Eve dinner. I decided to create a little folder which would hold a photo of the recipient taken on the night of the function (in this case it was Christmas Eve). I ensured that I photographed all my guests and later printed the photo's taken and placed the same in one of the folders that I had pre-prepared. The folder also included a thank you message and greeting as well as the event information and a copy of the menu to be sent to each guest as a permanent reminder of the evening shared with us. This is what I have submitted. The prize is the cheeky pie rubber stamp, plus rubber stamps of the entire January release. As those who know me already know.....this is the ultimate prize for me because I looooooooove The Greeting Farm stamps. Wish me luck!!!! :-)
I am still aglow after my win yesterday. I can't wait until I receive my new stamp set and when I do, be assured that I will be posting some projects which will incorporate the new stamps here. In the meantime, I promised that I would be posting some photo's of my latest crafting project (the Christmas present album which I have yet to finish for my little one's father - I know, slack aren't I). So as promised here they are.
So, what do you think? I think I really need to get my butt into gear as I clearly have a long way to go! So that's it from me at the moment. Ciao for now.
Hi there bloggers, (ok so it's still my one and only follower....:-( )
GREAT NEWS!!!! It is 4:30 in the morning and I was just getting ready to go to bed and thought I would check some of my favourite blogs before I going to sleep. So I merrily logged on to The Greeting Farm blog to check out the next sneak peek of their new stamps (soon to be released, can hardly wait) and low and behold....my name appeared on their blog!!! Yes that's right, I won something!! Whoo hoooo! I won a set of the "Little Dreamer" stamps set (which is sooooo cute by the way). Anyone who knows me knows what a thrill this must be for me since TGF is my favourite stamp company so to win a precious stamp prize is just more thrilling that words can express!!!! What a great end to my day. Anywhooooo I must sign off now and go and email Jess to arrange my prize. Whoohoooooo, won't I be a little dreamer tonight!
Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas. I hope everyone has had a lovely day. I for one spent it busily with family and whilst it was oh so lovely to spend time with everyone I really couldn't wait till everyone went home.... You see I got a fabulous new gift for Christmas.....yes you might guess it...it is something crafty.....it is..........a "BIG SHOT" (whoops and cheers) yipeeee!!! I could not wait to get down and crafty and break my new toy in. I have been busily working away on a couple of new projects one of which I did not get a chance to photograph before I surrendered it to the worthy recipient although my sister promises she will photograph it extensively for me so that I can put the images up here.
Another of my new projects was to create an album for my little one's father as a Christmas present full of pictures of him and her of moments they have shared so that he can always have her with him even while they are apart. I am sure that he will be very please with it. I shall post some progress photo's soon.
I have also been working on submitting a project for what will be my first challenge for the The Greeting Farm. I have to work out how to photograph it properly so that I can include it here before submitting it, since I want the best chance possible of winning their "Hostess with the Mostest" challenge. The prize if their whole January release....wouldn't I be absolutely stoked. I just love their stamps.
Another bit of exciting news is that one of my most favourite bloggers and scrapists (if that is even a word) has just been announced as a farmer for TGF!!! I can't wait to see what she produces. Her name is Sari and I have been following her blog and you tube video's for the past couple of months. She is an absolute genius. If you get a chance you should check out her blog. The link is listed in my favorites below.
Anyway, I have just returned from a night of Mahjong fun at my Auntie's house so I am buggered. It is already 4 am so I must go but I will try to post again soon. In the meantime, take a minute to have a sneek peek at the greeting farms new stamps, the link can be found in my favorite links.
