It's All About You

I love a bit of blog reading of a lunchtime. I really do. (It's most often lunchtime, even if the bread crumbs get everywhere.) Don't think I'll ever be a "blopper", though. That has to be one of my least favourite words ever. Along with "outsourced" and "instore".

Anyway, what I want to say today is - look at you all!
Making and sending beautiful things round the world:

With delighted and grateful thanks to (l to r) Amanda for her card, Mel for her little diorama and card, and Jacky for her memory-keeper card
Organising exciting giveaways:

The gorgeous collection of bits I was lucky enough to receive in a generous giveaway posted by Annie the Felt Fairy. Thank you!. You chose perfectly!
Planning and creating and blogging challenges and tips and Things We All Need To Know. My current favourites:
  • Amy and friends at their new blog Simple Aussie Girls. Their emphasis on journaling is right up my street.
  • Rinda's Summertime Scavenger Hunt (details in her sidebar). I'm sure she wouldn't mind a few more photographers joining in.
  • Alexa's feast of free digital templates and tips AND Fabric printing fun (also at It's A Creative World here
  • Cate's planning ahead for a series of Christmas posts and she's looking for some guests here
  • Jemma and S will be looking out for the new Counterfeit Kit Challenge very soon
  • Louise has taken up the Captured In a Card idea and is working it here
because I thought a Show of appreciation on a Saturday might be a plan. Come on, it's Saturday, show someone you are there enjoying what they are doing! Subscribe to someone new, follow someone for the first time (me, maybe?), leave a comment for somebody you enjoy...

...but, please, do come back tomorrow for Storytelling Sunday. And have a nice weekend, whatever you are up to.

Hi Sian - having trouble keeping up with my usual blogs at the moment as life is so hectic at home and at work! However, have done my story for tomorrow and look forward to reading others - perhaps I'll find someone new through Story Telling Sunday!

Scribble Monster said...

It all looks lovely Sian. I have enjoyed seeing your blog posts so much recently and I am so sorry I haven't been over to comment for a while. I am trying to think of a tale for tomorrow!

Some great links there Sian, thank you. The goodies you've received look lovely. Not heard of a blopper - don't think I'm one though whatever it is!

Lovely post Siân - funnily enough I subscribed to a new blog after I realised that one lovely lady often comments on my posts, and produces super pages that I sometime miss!

Maria Ontiveros said...

Very cool Sian! And looking forward to Storytelling Sunday.
Rinda

Not sure what a blopper is, but guess I don't want to be one! Great links, you sure make the most of your lunchtime surfing!

"show someone you are there enjoying what they are doing! Subscribe to someone new, follow someone for the first time"
