Can I show you some Candy I have received?

Hi Peeps

I am afraid that I have been a really bad blogger lately.  Unfortunately, our internet has been a little flakey yet again!! 

To be honest though I have not been doing an awful lot of crafting at the moment due to one thing and another though I do seem to have an awful lot of projects on the go and in little "just put this here while I make another birthday/anniversary/new home/wedding card" around my craft room.  I also seem to have an awful lot of magazine piles which need sorting out too.  So much so that today I have had a few hours in my room just sorting stuff out.  The magazines are next to my bed so that I can go through them whilst I drink my Horlicks/hot chocolate/ovaltine whichever I am having that night.  Don't worry, they will not be thrown away but they will be passed on to a good friend of mine and her Grandaughter who are interested in crafting. 

I thought that tonight I would show you some Candy I have received recently from some wonderful Blogging Friends.

First up is a wonderful box of goodies which I received from the lovely Jo at Jozart.  A few months ago I learnt of a lovely crafter Ethyl who had unfortunately had a terrible accident and was undergoing some serious operations, and her wonderful friend Sheree was asking fellow crafters to make Get Well cards which would be sent on to Ethyl  to help speed her recovery.  Well some other wonderful people offered some gifts which Sheree drew lots from the people who had sent cards.  I was lucky enough to be drawn to receive Jo's gift which was a lovely box full of goodies.  Boy did my face light up when I opened this box.

The second wonderful bit of Candy I received was from Sasa.  Sasa is running a wonderful monthly challenge called MOJO Monthly.  Please visit Sasa as the interviews and challenges really are wonderful. 

Well last month you may remember seeing this....

Well it won the MOJO Monthly and I was lucky enough to receive these.   I am sooo happy as these stamps look wonderful. 

Well, I am off to finish making the Sunday tea now and settle down with some hand quilting in front of the TV for a few hours before going to bed! 

It just remains for me to say a huge Thank You to Sheree, Jo and Sasa. 

See ya soon and have a good week whatever you are up to.  Please keep your fingers crossed that this internet problem stays away.

Lovely gifts you received, Hettie. I suppose kindness begets kindness but it's great to have surprises. I'll go and see what the MOJO Monthly is all about.
Enjoy the new week,
