New shop and blog candy!

This post will stay at the top until the candy is drawn.... At last I hear you say Keryn (amongst others)! Thanks for all your encouragement to do something with my doodles. And before another year passes thought I'd get me act in gear and at least take the easy option - with secure payment methods - and go for a shop at Shophandmade. It's my Birthday tomorrow 39 years young......so if I don't do it now It will be next year and I'll be 40 and still thinking about it!

As a little thanks for anyone who would like to do a wee linky thing to spread the word I will have some candy thought I ! What would you like....mmmmm!

Since it went down well last time I was thinking a personal doodle. You give me a theme and I will create you a digi image and also send you the coloured original - so it's all yours!

Please just provide a wee link to this post to spread the word and leave me a comment to let me know . Also if there is anything that you are looking for I will add it to my ever growing list of things to doodle! I will try to work out how to keep this post at the top and it will end on the 19th September.

Thanks again for all your encouragement and taking the time to blog hop in my direction.

  3. Hey, well done you!
    I started a shop there too, but didn't get round to posting anything there.
    I did my own blog shop instead, Delicious Doodles I called it.
    Maybe I'll just go and start up that shop again!
    Hugs,

  4. Hi Claire I have posted on my blog and just been to check out your fab shop. I could not resist buying one of your images and can not wait to make a card with it.

  5. Yes yes yes!!!! Good for you, and Happy day before your Birthday too!! I must join in on the cancancandy this time, and congratulations on the doodles!! AND, to get that post to stay at the top of your blog, go to the section of your post where it says edit, go to the area where it is time-stamped (lower right) and move the date and time to the one you desire and hit publish!! The trick with that is that you need to publish first, which you obviously have, and then edit the post. The post will remain at the top of your blog until that date passes. Now, gonna do some linking of the cancan on my sidebar!!

  54. Hi Claire,

    I think I thought I'll get back to this one later when I have a little time. Guess I very nearly forgot as it is a lot later.

    Hope you had a fabulous birthday, 40 years young, eh?

    would also love to be in with a chance of winning this lovely candy.

    Love,

    Jo.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Well that should have been 39 years young, but then 40 is no worse (I can know at 45, edging towards 46)
    (oops about that mistake, misread your message)

    Love,

    Jo.
