A little blog candy...

Hi, I hope you've enjoyed your weekend.   Just to make the start of the week a little nicer, I have a small blog candy/giveaway. There are two reasons for this:  firstly by way of an apology for not visiting as much as I'd like at the moment, partly due to our recent house move (we're still unpacking 2 months on - when will it end!) and also the birth of my grandson - life seems to be absolutely manic now and I'm having serious crafty withdrawl symptoms, lol.  Secondly, I think it's time for a bit of a blog facelift - and that's where you come in!

I've been blogging for over a year now and would dearly like to give my blog a complete overhaul - a new look and maybe a new name.  I've got a couple of names in mind but would love some more suggestions, if you can think of any?

This is my little parcel, it's not a lot but you could make some nice things with them - there are a couple of things to alter (one of those famous Ikea mirrors, and a slide mailer), 5 x 1m lengths of lovely lace/trim, 2 x CI stamps, 1 x Marianne Creatable ribbon die/embossing thingy, 4 small Stampbord pieces, and a few brass charms and a couple of other things.....


I'll draw the winner by randon number, so if you'd like to enter, please leave a comment below, make sure you're a follower, and, if you don't mind, I'd be eternally grateful if you would pop a pic in your sidebar or somewhere.  It will run until midnight on Sunday 23rd September, which is two weeks away. I'll also add this in the Blog Candy Cauldron (thank you Joanna).

There will also be a second surprise gift for someone who can come up with a better name for my blog than the ones I've thought of: :-)!!!

Bye for now...

Hi Maria. Sounds like you have been busy just lately with moving house and a new grandson. Very generous of you to offer this super candy. Wish I could help with a new name for your blog but am rubbish at coming up with names for things. I struggle with my blog post titles all the time lol. Good luck with the overhaul of your blog and thanks for the chance to win.

Hi Maria,

Oh the blog name is difficult; I was thinking mine about a year before I started my blog ( 4 years ago!)And then it just came from my last name!
How about Maz's makes!

Fabulous candy thanks for offering it to us, your loyal subjects.
As for unpacking, moved into this house 8 years ago and still have boxes that unopened. Good luck.

Hi Maria
This Blog Candy is amazing. That mirror looks incredible to alter.
Having one your previous Giveaway I know how generous you are, I am still playing with items you sent my way.
Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to be part of your Giveaway.
Not sure I am one to come up with a name for you as so difficult picking a name for someone else, you really have to be comfortable with what you go for.
Wishes
Lynne

Did my comment come through?
Appears to be a glitch at my end.
I know you are so generous with your Giveaways and this is no exception, thank you for the chance of winning those amazing goodies.
That mirror would be amazing to alter.
Wishes
Lynne
P.S. sorry but I cannot come up with a name, well I came up with one but it is rubbish - It's In The Details - I know, I wouldn't expect you to pick it!!!!
