Merry Christmas - Blog Candy :)

Hi everyone.
Well Christmas is almost here and I am not ready at all lol.
Never mind, as long as the family are together things will be great.
I have been thinking alt about this year, which hasn't been great for me.  I have chronic health problems anyway, which most of you probably know, but I've also had pneumonia this year, followed by shingles and I still haven't really recovered fully.
However, I am grateful that I am at present able to create things which gives me immense pleasure and I know that many of us craft as a sort of therapy, even if just for relaxation after a tough day at work :)
So, I am hoping for a better year next year, but I know that January can be a bit flat after all the preparations for Christmas, which seem to start earlier every year, so I thought I would do a blog candy.  In fact I am doing 2, one here and one on the challenge blog HERE , so you can add your name to both if you like :) (It seems that this happens automatically - not sure how I've managed to do that but now you only need to enter one to be entered into both :) )
This is what you could win;

It's a little something to say thanks for popping by and seeing me, and also a pledge that I will try to blog more next year with lots of the things that I make.
All you need to do to enter is add you name to the linky at the bottom (it would be nice if you choose to follow me but you don't have to if you don't want to :))
It would also be nice if you left a comment just to say hi, but again, not essential.
I am going to run it until the 7th of January, so you have a month to enter and don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and enter there too :)
Hopefully I will be back before the big day, but if not I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope that you all get some great pressies (ooh, please comment after the day and let me know what you've received, as I'm very nosy and I'd love to know :) )

Take care



  1. I didn't realise you had your own blog Sam.
    Am now following here too and added a photo and links to here and the challenge. Thanks for the chance Karen x

  2. Thank you for the candy! I just linked up on your challenge blog and came over here to check out your second candy, but it looks like the link-up at the other blog has carried over to here, so that's lovely! I guess I don't have to add my name because you've done it for me - thank you! I just joined as a follower too. Wishing you a better year in 2015! (For both of us!)

  3. Yup, it linked me up on both automatically. Well that works! Thanks so much for the fun! Lizzy

  4. Thanks for candy. Wishing you a very healthy year full of joy and happiness.


  5. I'm sorry to hear about your health problems. I really hope that 2015 will be a better year for you. May year 2015 be filled with love, joy, laughter and hapines. Wishing you all the best!

    Hugs! xx
