Nearly 1500 followers! Wow thank you!!

Zoe July 16, 2011 49

Hi Everyone,

It’s hard to believe that you all follow for me one reason or another. I don’t think of myself as someone that special and it amazes me that you find me somewhat interesting. haha!

Thank you all sooo much for your support and for all your wonderful comments. It really does mean the world to me. I do try to reciprocate however I am ashamed to say that these days I just don’t get to go blog hopping as much as I used to. I spend many hours answering emails, running the business, manufacturing, packaging and so on that my ‘play time’ has been reduced to th————-is much. hehee The not so fun side to having a crafting business!!

So as I was sitting here I thought, wouldn’t it be extra special if during my store’s 1st anniversary month I hit the 1500 followers target??

I thought, maybe you could help me?

So I created this REALLY simple badge that I’m hoping you will want to add to your blog.

As a thank you I will give away
TWO $20 vouchers
to spend in my store.

Just add the banner and then comment below!

I’ll draw a winner when I draw the winner for the candy at the end of the month!

Here is the code you can copy and paste.



But before you rush off I have another TWO random winners chosen from those who have commented on my blog.

The first winner is – CHRISSY (

The second winner is – Frances (

Congratulations Chrissy and Frances. You have both won your choice of TWO digi stamps from the new Steampunk collection.

Please contact me via the ‘Contact Us’ link top right with your choices.

    Congratulations Chrissy and Frances.

    Funny, I just noticed your count a few days ago and was thinking how nice it was that your following has grown so large. I’m not surprised though; you are the most amazing colourist and I love seeing your latest handiwork. You also put so much of yourself into your business; I get tired just thinking about it.

    Of course I will help you get 1500 followers (and more, you deserve it!)
    I love your colouring and your designs (the new Steampunk collection is GREAT), and obviously many bloggers agree with me ๐Ÿ™‚
