Blog Candy :)

Hi everyone.
Well Christmas is almost here and I am not ready at all lol.
Never mind, as long as the family are together things will be great.
I have been thinking alt about this year, which hasn't been great for me.  I have chronic health problems anyway, which most of you probably know, but I've also had pneumonia this year, followed by shingles and I still haven't really recovered fully.
However, I am grateful that I am at present able to create things which gives me immense pleasure and I know that many of us craft as a sort of therapy, even if just for relaxation after a tough day at work :)
So, I am hoping for a better year next year, but I know that January can be a bit flat after all the preparations for Christmas, which seem to start earlier every year, so I thought I would do a blog candy.  In fact I am doing 2, one here and one on my blog HERE  , so you can add your name to both if you like :) (It seems that this happens automatically - not sure how I've managed to do that but now you only need to enter one to be entered into both :) ) It's also a big thank you to all of you who enter our challenges and support this blog:)
This is what you could win;
All you need to do to enter is add you name to the linky at the bottom (it would be nice if you choose to follow me but you don't have to if you don't want to :))
It would also be nice if you left a comment just to say hi, but again, not essential.
I am going to run it until the 7th of January, so you have a month to enter and don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and enter there too :)
Hopefully I will be back before the big day, but if not I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope that you all get some great pressies (ooh, please comment after the day and let me know what you've received, as I'm very nosy and I'd love to know :) )

Take care


  1. Hiya Sam, thank you for the chance to win the lovely candy. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and all the best for the new year!!! I hope that the next one is a better year for you. Take Care, Cuddles Jay xxx

  2. hi, great blog and giveaway, i have added you to my sidebar.

  3. Sorry you've had such a rough year - I've had a bad one myself! Hoping 2015 is a much better year - for both of us! Thank you for the scrumptious candy! I am already a follower and I enjoy playing in your challenges every month. I will go check out your other blog too! Thank you so much - I am sending hugs, prayers, and best wishes your way.

  4. Hi Sam, it's been a very difficult year for me. Losing my Dad on Jan 1 and then my darling beagle Bailey on Oct 28. I've recently gotten a new little beagle (Linus). My heart has hurt his year so much yet it's the first year I've been physically healthy. I think I liked previous years better when the hurt could be healed with a doctor's visit. I am praying for so many of us for a better 2015. I think of you and Bertie often. Hugs, Gail
