My first blog candy - finally!

I 'm terrribly sorry for taking so long to post the blog candy I had announced in the previous post.  I owe all of you who visit my blog an apology. In fact I had hoped to post it before Easter Sunday, but things got a bit out of control because I've been having quite a busy time lately and time really flies... Anyway, here it is, finally. Here's what I'm offering you:

- an altered notebook

- 2 ATCs

- an altered notebook

- letter paper + matching envelopes and pen

- cross-stitch fabric, blue thread and pink grosgrain ribbon

- an altered box

- metallic beads 

- green flowers (in the picture they look blue but they aren't) and a couple of colourful animals (they're stickers  and I think they're made of EVA)

-two polymer clay pendants/charms and some beads (made by me)

- découpage paper and napkin papers for découpage

For a chance to win, all you need to do is post a comment here and a link to this post on your blog (to spread the word).

I'll keep this running until I have at least ten comments.  The winner will be chosen using a random number generator.

Good luck and thanks for being a visitor to my blog!



Thank you very much to all who participated in it and to all the people who decided to become a follower too.

Unfortunately, there is only one winner and you can find it here.

Blog candy coming soon...

I've wanted to have a giveaway for a long time. Actually, I've been thinking about it since last year, so it's about time I do it. My birthday was a week ago (April 2nd) and so I can't find a better way to celebrate being alive than creating some art and give it away to someone else as a way of thanking God for being so generous to me.

The ATC in the picture is just "an appetizer" and will be part of the giveaway, as well as the spring ATC I've just posted.

I'm still finishing a couple of projects (a little box and an altered notebook). So when I'm done, which will hopefully happen before Easter Sunday, I'll post the full picture of what you might win if you post a comment. By the way, all you have to do to enter the draw is share a cherished memory of one of your birthdays and post a link to this post on your blog to spread the word. The more the merrier... The draw will run for about two weeks (I'll tell you the exact date later)and I will use a random number generator to choose the winning post.

You make my heart sing

Spring is the theme at Created by Hand. Here is my ATC.

Thanks for looking!

Secret garden

Secret garden is the them at TGiF. Here's my ATC. (It was the first time I used the bandana technique.)

Thanks for looking!

The key to happiness

Key is the theme at Inspire me Thursday. At Mixed Media Monday the theme is polka dots and or stripes, so I've combined both challenges.
