Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Thank YOU Blog Candy - Drawn at 310 Encouragers!

Hi there dear Wonderful Encouragers of this blog,
I thought it high time that we had a small candy as a little THANK YOU TO ALL YOU WONDERFUL Folk - to all of you dear Encouragers of this blog.
I missed the sixth blogaversary, been hovering in 290's for months, gain one, loose one or two, so decided to incorporate this goal of 310+ with the candy. 
The reason for the number is in the hope it will stay above 300. 😊
To enter:
1. Be an Encourager of this blog ie join through the follow button, on side bar.
I suggest you check it is showing "un-follow" button - as sometimes blogger plays tricks and un-follows you - it has with me! and had to re-follow blogs.

2. It would be appreciated if  you would put a link on your sidebar, or mention it in a post (add link for this in a comment) step 2 -  gives you an extra entry in candy.

3. Please leave a comment below. (ONE entry for comment, EXTRA ENTRY for those who add to sidebar)

In event a non-crafter wins I will do them a piece of calligraphy ... so if you dont craft and want a piece of personalised calligraphy,  please do enter... also if you prefer the calligraphy that is okay too. Just say!

New Encouragers or followers are very welcome. If they are genuine, not just candy hunters.

Hi Shaz, well done you for getting so many followers. I have found it really hard to build them up. Happy crafting, Angela x

Aileen Ryan said...

Well I get all your posts by email but I am now a follower as well. Sorry Im not great with the blog so not sure what I am meant to do with the second. But thank you so much for the offer of candy, really brilliant that you have 300 (mind you it didnt change when I clicked on it so may have already been a follower!!!)

Im hovering on 98 at the moment, so long nothing was happening and then I looked woohoo 98. Will it ever move above???

I want to say I always enjoy visiting with the wide range of crafting that you do and seeing your wonderful photos of Australia.

Hugs aileen

Congratulations on your sixth anniversary!
I'm so thankful I found your lovely Blog through my dear Stephanie when I began blogging almost three years ago. Three years doesn't seem right, but April will be my third anniversary. Wow, time goes fast.
I follow you through e mail but I just became a follower as well.
I have enjoyed my visits here with you and look forward to many more.
Your beauty in your creativity amazes me time after time and the beauty of your little corner of the world captivates me.

God bless you, dear lady~

Congratulations on your blogaversary, Shaz, and your 300+ Encouragers. I can't add a link on my sidebar as I can only use an iPad for visiting blogs for the next couple of weeks. I haven't worked out how to edit my blog on an iPad, but will add a link when I'm back on my computer, if your giveaway is still running. xx

Finally got some time on my laptop so I could put up a photo and link to your candy on my sidebar:) I haven't figured out how to do that from my Ipad...
Thank you for being such a source of inspiration and for leaving me encouraging comments.

Gabriella Thomas said...

I just found your site and I remember now why I loved calligraphy. It's been a number (big number) of years since I've worked with it. Your work is just lovely!! I'm going to browse around and see what all you have but I wanted you to know how pleased I am to see such beautiful calligraphy on the net and that you have a new follower. I do hope you blast past 310 up to 500. I'll give you a shout out and see if I can help you get more members. Thank you for offering the candy and of course I'd love to win but I'm so happy to look around and renew my old love.
