Blog Candy Finally and My Rocky Bear!


Good morning, its Tuesday again, and its well overdue for my blog candy. As some of you will know not only am i celebrating my Birthday this Saturday, yes i will be 21 again!!! but its also my blog anniversary at the end of the month. So to celebrate i have put together some blog candy which im hoping might tempt you all.

I will be adding some more to this candy over the next week, including a pile of stamped images, if you have any special requests i will accommodate if i can.

Selection of Pink Ribbons
DCWV Green Paper Stack
2 x packs C6 cards/envelopes
Bright pink 6mm Flat backed pearls
Stitche rub ons
Daisy D Paper Pack already die cut
2 x 20m organza spot ribbon (blue and white)
Sugar Nellie Grab Bag containing 4 stamps plus extras
3 x packs of assorted gems (glue, green, pink)
Spellbinders Framabilities - Scalloped Edge Frame
If you like the look of this candy then please leave a comment at the bottom of this post, and if you have a blog and would like to let others know about my candy thats great, but its not necessary. Also if you want to become a follower thats also great but not necessary.
There will however be another small blog candy surprise to one of my followers. This will be a separate draw done at the close of the main blog candy.
This candy will run till the 27th June mid day, good luck to you all.

As many of you will know we recently had an addition to our family, a 7 month old Rottie called Rocky Bear!! well, Rocky Bear is settling in well infact it feels like he's alway been here. I never knew how much joy a dog could bring you, but truly they do, and i can not imagine life without him. Despite him constantly taking rubbish from my bin and spreading it all over the floor!!!!
You can see that my baby loves to lay with me when im crafting, there is not much space down by my desk but just enough for him to lay!

Fast asleep, bless him!

Because of Rocky Bears arrival, and the fact that we have to contain him to the conservatory (for allergy reasons!) we thought it would be sensible to put a sofa in the conservatory so we can sit with him in the evening. As you know my crafting space is in the conservatory. Well there was no way we could fit a settee in as things were, so i had to re-arrange my crafting stash, and condense it (shows just how much i love Bear!). After hours of huffing and puffing i finally managed to fit everything in a much smaller space! admittedly it looks a bit untidy but it is working for me, things are closer to hand and i don't have to get up from my chair much!

This is a view from the top end of the conservatory, as you can see just enough space for the settee.

It's amazing how much you can fit into a space when you have to!

This is the settee, that i brought from ebay for the bargain price of £60. I can not tell you how thrilled we were when we went to collect it. It had been recovered last month! at a cost of £1699.00 for the complete suite. Unfortunately the suite got separated, but we coudn't have fitted in 2 more chairs anyway!

So now we get to spend the evenings sitting with Rocky Bear, either watching TV or in my case crafting!
Hope you are all having a good week, and i am looking forward to catching up with you all during the week, sorry for my less frequent visits, but my puppy is taking up so much of my time at the moment.
Thats it for now, remember i will be adding more blog candy during the week, will post photos as i do so!
Hugs for now Linda x

Wow Linda, you do seem to manage to contain a quart in a pint pot, how youve managed to get yourself and all your furniture and the settee into your conservatory I just dont know, but youve done it and it looks brilliant.
The Blogcandy looks really yummy and so generous of you, Im sure the person who wins it will think theyve had a birthday as well. With love and great big hugs to you and Rocky Bear, love Shirleyxxx

Nunt said...

Hi Linda,
gosh, I have some stash to go yet to get where you are at :D All my stuff fit into 2 boxes :D But that is a nice and comfy little place you have, very airy and light.

I don't know which is more adorable, your candy or Rocky Bear :D He at least looks very huggable <3 If I don't get lucky and win the candy, can I get a doggy-hug instead?

I posted your candy in my sidebar and I already was a follower, so see you around in the blog world ^_^

Loving Rocky Bear how cute is he!! We really do turn our lives upside down for dogs dont we!!

Can I just say HOLY MOLY how much stuff have you got? How on earth did you manage to condense it? Lol!!

I'm squished in a corner in the frontroom at the moment till hubby builds me my space in his workshop. I thought I had a lot of stash till I saw yours!!

Happy Birthday & Happy Anniversary. 21 again, doesnt time fly lol!!
Hugs Helen x

Kristine B. said...

Happy Birthday Linda!! :) I'm so sorry I haven't been visiting very often :( - I do WISH I had more time to blurf but it seems those days are quickly vanishing--but hopefully not for good!! Being on DT's definately has it's advantages, but it means less blurf time for me anyway.

WOW...what a GORGEOUS conservatory you have Linda!! It looks like you have a mini craft store right there!!! :) It's so bright and fresh and clean. I'd give my right arm to come visit and stamp with you in there! Rocky is soo sweet to keep you company while you craft :) Have a lovely day, and OH, please send me your snail addy---I want to send you a b-day greeting in the mail! THANKS!!

Jodi said...

Happy early Birthday Linda!! I love that you are making room for your cute doggie!! He is just adorable and yes, they really do bring lots of joy to our lives!!
Jodi =)

Angelo said...

Rocky bear is so sweet! I do understand how much time a puppy takes and how much you can love a dog. Having two dogs I could gladly have more :)

Your blog candy looks terrific! Who can resist laying their hands on any of the goodies you've put in there? Well, that person just can't be a true crafter!

Happy birthday, dear Linda!

Hugs, Kristin :)

Sandra said...

Jeni C Slack (^0^) said...

Linda, you have a really organized craft room! Wish mine looked like that. And Happy Birthday too!

I saw you had such a pretty card entry you had for the sugar bowl! I love the colors and the papers! I had fun playing the Sugar bowl as well.

I think you should definitely give it a try at Midnight Madness Sketch, your cards have beautiful color, and not to mention up to $500 prize they are giving, each week's entry is one more chance at the pot.
Please take a look, http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com

Linda, here’s wishing you a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY for tomorrow and also congratulations on your blog anniversary for the end of the month. I would love to be in with a chance of winning some blog candy for my cards I make solely to sell to raise funds for different charities and I’d put it to that use.

Give Rocky Bear a cuddle from me.

Jilli said...

Happy Birthday honey ... I'm such a slack blog buddy ... i just dont ever seem to have time to visit anyone just lately. I'm so envious of your gorgeous craft space and your beautiful Rocky Bear. My sister used to have a rottie some years ago, she was absolutely adorable and a treasure with the children, who used to climb over her, lie on her and do all manner of things to her with no repercussions at all. She was one of the best dogs ever! Anyhow ... lol ... your candy is fab ... you're linked on my blog sidebar. Thanks for the chance of winning. Jillix

Keep in touch... and Happy Birthday again!
Love, Birgit
