About Me

My photo
My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.

From Trash to Treasure - Art Giveaway

I've not had a chance to create any artwork today to upload as its been busy, busy, busy...ironing...yuk! then a wonderful couple of hours getting my nails and hair done. After the last couple of weeks it was a welcome release. Then at 4.30 three managers from various departments concerned with our 'hole' arrived for a meeting with ourselves. I'll give you an update on this another time as for now I want to tell you about an amazing giveaway over on Lin Stevens blog.

I found the link through another blog I follow, Lottie, http://atcsbylottie.blogspot.com
As I like to dabble in altered art from time to time I thought I'd take a peek....WOW! She makes some fabby stuff and is giving some items away to celebrate her three year blog anniversary. There is also a BONUS giveaway of some numerous stamps. How generous is that???

Why don't you hop on over to her blog and enter her giveaway. Here comes the link and thanks for the chance of entering this brilliant giveaway Lin.

FOOTNOTE: Don't ask me what I've done to get the 'messed up' text, haven't a clue, lol
