444,444 pageviews Giveaway


Dear readers,

You probably noticed that I changed my profile photo.  My photo, for an unknown reason, disappeared. With the help of my dear friend Birgit, I managed to install a
new photo. The reason you don't see my old face anymore is that I cannot find the
photo. rest assured that the mystery house looks far better than I do.

About three weeks ago, the number of 444,444 page-views appeared on my blog. This is
a good reason to celebrate the occasion by offering a giveaway.

You only have to be a follower of this blog and comment hereunder if you like what is
offered and want to participate in the draw.

Officially, it's spring but today is cold, dark and fulltime raining here.  Anyway, my
giveaway is about spring whenever it decides to be here.  Everything is hand
made by me except the bunny.






 






Have a wonderful, creative week to come with blessings.

Hello dear readers,

First of all, thanks for your get well wishes.  It helped, my fingers are already
much better.

While I'll be preparing something for my promised giveaway, I've made, with
the help of young Dana, a very simple "Honey, I shrunk the candies" tutorial
to share with you.



We cut the candy's cellophane wrapping into small pieces, put a little colored
seed bead inside and twisted both sides around it.



To make this long-legged candy bowl you need a goggle-eye blister and a
transparent push-pin.  Hold the push-pin metal part over candlelight and
with a player slide it out. Glue the two together.  If necessary, sand smoothly
the rim of the blister.









A warm welcome and thanks to my new followers!
Happy crafting and lovely spring to all with blessings.

Hello dear readers,

The winters here in Israel are usually mild ones.  This year we are having days of
beautiful sunshine  and then a few days of unusually cold and rainy, in turns.
The rain and snow were welcome but personally, I'm not used to it and although my
home is airconditioned and I 'm wearing warm clothes and gloves when I go outdoors,
I got chilblains on all fingers and toes.  The result is that my fingers are swollen and
blue, making it difficult to work on miniatures.

But this doesn't mean  I forgot a giveaway to celebrate number 444,444 pageview
which happened 3 days ago.  By now the number has gone up although my blog
was silent for the past 3 weeks.  Shall let you know as soon as it's ready.
 

I wish you all a lovely weekend with blessings.
