Blogging for me, has been an entirely positive experience. I have found a supportive network of friends who have been very welcoming. A sisterhood. I love the community I have become part of. I have found some wonderful people through blogging… people who I have more in common with than many of my friends.
It has increased my productivity. I'm getting things done like never before. A kick up the arse. It's chanelled my creativity. It has also brought me new clients.
It never ceases to amaze me that people read this! To say a BIG thank you to my readers and fellow bloggers I'm having a giveaway. Here's the stash...
Firstly for the UK people:
My husband was given a box of OPI nail varnishes when he filmed an OPI lady at a show.
|They aren't Alpine Snow...|
Now you know my hands are like these...
...except with added paint and bitten nails but I stashed them away for a future giveaway. I believe they are worth squillions. There are 4 bottles in the box.
They are: Natural Nail Base Coat, Russian Navy Nail Lacquer (looks purple to me,) Barre my Soul Nail Lacquer (pale pink) and a bottle of Top Coat.
I'm also offering this sweet little crate...
...which I will paint for you with the text of your choice if you wish.
...whatever you want. (But it is small!)

And this time, to be fair to my non UK readers there is another prize that I can post overseas. You won't get the nail polish,the tea towels or the crate, (some countries are funny about wooden products being imported) but you will get this very sweet vintage English marmalade pot.
And when I say 'vintage' I mean dating from 1873-1898 so actually 'antique'. I love these pots for holding paintbrushes. You can also use them as vases but you sometimes need to have a jam jar inside to hold the water as cracks and crazing means they aren't always water tight. Sorry to the UK folks but this prize is overseas only. (They are quite plentiful here though.)
So, to enter you must be a follower with Google Friend Connect and leave a comment below. If you are overseas please tell me this as the overseas people will be entered into a separate draw. Easy peasy. Oh, and please make sure you aren't on a 'no reply' setting as I will need to email you.
The deadline is midnight on Wednesday 13th June.
As for the future of this blog, I just hope I never run out of ideas. Or indeed furniture. My husband is a film maker and he's trying to persuade me to get in front of the camera. We'll see...
But for now, THANK YOU for reading! And good luck.
