Blogiversary Candy Give Away

***BLOG CANDY IS NOW CLOSED***

This post will stay on top until
27th April 2009
Please scroll down for the current post

 

It is coming up to my first blogiversary at the end of April and I wanted to do a Blog Candy Giveaway to celebrate a year of craft blogging.

The candy is a collection of ribbons, brads, beads, fabric flowers, shaped eyelets, with some more things creeping in as we progress through the month! But the stars of the show are a pot of my two favourite Shimmerz paints – Angel Wings and Blingz Flashee Fushchia from the very lovely Stacey at Shimmerz Paints. If you haven’t had a chance to try these fabby paints then here it is! Or if you are already a fan then you can stock up on some more for free with this candy!

So you have noticed a bag of mixed beads at the front? Well, here is how you can join in on this blog candy. Leave me a comment telling me how many beads you think are in the bag! Yep, I did count them LOL!

You can have more than one go but only one go per day!

The more goes you have the more chances you have – so in my calculations that is 20 chances between 8th and the 27th April!

Remember also to post about the candy on your blog (leaving me a direct link to the post would
be much appreciated!).

So how many beads are there…? Teehee, I am wicked making you work for your candy! For a clue to the number just click here.


The candy will close 27th April 2009 5pm BST (GMT+1h). The people who are within plus or minus 50 beads of the correct bead count will be thrown into the pot and random.org will pick the winner.
Open internationally.

PS. keep your eye on this space because there might be some additions between now and the end of April 🙂
Teehee!

  31. Hi,

    I’d guess at 1250 today. I’m really struggling though, as there could either be many many small beads hiding, or you’ve seperated all the little ones out to confuse us 😉

    Great idea though, I always liked the sweety in a jar type games.

I can not wait to start using them! And those fabric covered brads? How did u know that my favorite colours are pink and purple?? Andandandand….(I´m stuttering….) I am so amazed. The card is so cute! I love the colouring. Have you used pencils? The papers are just so FINE! What brand is it, if you dont mind me asking?? Is it OK if i post it in my blog?
