I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

Coopy said...

I would absolutely love to be entered into your giveaway. As a crafter, my mind is spinning my new friend, just spinning.

Might I also say, God bless for you opening your giveaway to worldwide folks. I do so also. I figure why not reach across the waters and mountains to make new friends. Many do not so I'm mindful to only join those who do. Hugs. I dont' tweet or anything but I'll do a link for you on my blog. HUGS. Tammy aka Coopy

Krishenka said...

Thanks so much Tammy and for the share on your blog. For obvious reasons I can't enter this, but would love to:) Much more fun to do worldwide giveaways and as you said you meet some fabulous people into the bargain. All the best and the draw is tomorrow. Good luck

Mary Lindsay said...

Hello everyone, just popped in to say - The Giveaway is almost ready to be given away to one of you Giveaway entrants.
Using my mathematical conbobulating brain I will compile and number all entrants, then, using my creative skills (as well as my mathematical conbobulating grey matter) will design a temporary numerical receptacle using an outer extremity protector to which I will deposit the said numbers (entrants) into with care, precision and utmost reverence. After which I will apply the most basic mathematical equation in order to procure a great, although temporary gravitational resistance, this limited resistance of course will soon reverse, allowing gravity to dominate and bring about the singular natural conclusion where upon the contents will find their expected resting space, except one !! This one I will catch.
That my dear friends will be the Giveaway number (entrant) who will receive the giveaway gift which will be boxed posted and given away.
- In short folks -
I will put all the numbers in a hat, throw them up in the air and grab the first one I can - Hey Presto we have a winner. Good luck to you all.
Mary ( I need to go rest in a dark room now!)

Krishenka said...

whoo Mary what an epic have you written a book yet? you should! I cant wait to see who wins and after that epic I think you should have a wee rest:) Thanks so much agin Mary for your fabulous giveaway and humour:)
