But I thought I'd pop on here and annoy you all today...I'm good like that.
Question...Is anyone else getting lots of spam comments? Sheesh, I checked my blog one morning and there was a comment awaiting moderation..and 17 spam comments! From folks selling plastic business cards to some that sounded a bit unsavoury. I've had the occasional spam before but not on this scale and they keep on coming. I'm just glad that I chose to moderate my comments so I can weed the buggers out first!
I've also suddenly started to receive "We'll send you one of these free and another to give away as blog candy" emails. I have refused them all - politely of course. If I was offered something I already use then I would willingly accept the occasional freebie to give away as blog candy. But if I don't use it then it's wrong to pimp it on my blog, in my opinion.
Other news...I found a fabulous Dutch shop! I am always a little wary when buying from abroad. I do occasionally buy from the USA but gosh I always get stung with import duties!
And in my new found Dutch shop I saw this....
She is a very special little Tilda. Magnolia have made this stamp only to be sold at my Dutch shop. You notice it's now called MY Dutch shop?
Magnolia are donating 500 euros to the Swedish Cancer Fund, and for every one of these stamps sold 2 euros is donated to the Pink Ribbon Cancer Fund. All in all a very worthy cause and you even get a stamp at the end of it!
This charity is also very close to Astrid's heart (the owner of the Dutch shop) as she has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer herself and is going into hospital on Tuesday.
So if you want to do your bit for charity then you can find the stamp HERE. Yes, she is a little more expensive than your average Tilda, but she's a very special Tilda! They are on pre-order at the moment but are due in the shop early next week. I did my bit and bought some for gifts, plus an extra one for a future candy.
I did do a little extra shopping whilst I was there...Maja and Pion papers..it's a terrible addiction you know.
And I blame a certain lady in Indiana for sending me the link to the shop. You know who you are!
I forgot to add this..there are NO import duties to buy from Holland to the UK!
Next topic...if you've not fallen asleep/gone into a coma/died...
I much prefer to give away little candy's than big 'uns. If they are smaller then I can do them more often and spread the love around more. All makes sense to me.
So I have a little one :)
Candy consists of:
3 Wishes by Sylvia Zet for SCACD unmounted rubber stamp.
Bildmalarna Mimosa Walk unmounted rubber stamp.
Authentique Uncommon 6x6 paper pad.
It's a quick giveaway and will end later tonight, this way I hope that the people who enter are my followers and the ones who usually bob by rather than those on the look out for a freebie.
I've put a froggy link on, only because it is so much easier and the fairest way for Mr Random to pick a number from those who enter. Usual rules apply..I'm sure my regulars know them already!
Thanks for looking.
Love Elaine xxx
