Blog Candy

I think it's Easter Sunday, and with that in mind I'm giving you the opportunity to win some blog candy (which,not being an Easter Egg won't make you fat) courtesty of Maria Simms.  Maria and I are FB friends, but I can't remember if I asked her or she asked me,   But either way we are friends and she is a very talented lady.   So talented is she that she is on the design team for, amongst others, Barbara Gray and HunkyDory.  This weekend she was introduced as a new guest craft demonstrator on Ideal World so I went in search of her blog and discovered she is giving stuff away.  So, being the generous soul that I am, I thought I'd tell you all about it.  And it's got nothing to do with the fact that it's a condition of the giveaway that it's posted on your blog.  Nothing I tell you........

And, with my frugal head on (which is still not doing so well) by using TopCashback I have earned myself about £100 of cashback.   So using some of this I have ordered a couple of crafty things from Amazon, and I am about to receive my 2nd payment which I'm opting to get as credit to my paypal account.  I then intend to use this to get a brayer and some big and juicy stamp pads so that I can practice with the Barbara Gray stamps and free DVD I ordered from C&C in the big Easter weekend giveaway (DVD free)   And to bring this entry back full circle, I also ordered the gorgeous HunkyDory pick of the week (with free luxury cards) on which show was the lovely Maria.

Just as well it's payday before the the paint fusion POW on Royal Wedding Day.

Best continue tidying so I got some room to store my new goodies

Some stuff about the stuff in the blog


Very new at this blogging lark, so forgive me if I get a bit befuddled. User name is derived from my maiden name of George and the fact that by the time the Olympics are held in the UK in 2012, I will look as if I could compete. And not as a sumo wrestler.

For starters there is only one blog with contain my thoughts, but this might evolve into 3 or 4 when I work out what I'm doing.

In the main it will cover my slimming journey, my quilting exploits, my get fit and stay fit campaign, and my photography. Not forgetting my recent TrollBead obsession.

Should I ever get a lovelife you might get glimpses of that as well.
