Congratulations to...

Cory of http://www.etsy.com/shop/FallingStarLane whose suggested names will be used for my newest set of magnetic paper dolls.
There were many great choices, and it was not an easy decision- I could easily have compiled a combined list from all of the suggestions, but Cory's list won because I liked all the names and felt they suited the dolls.
So here are the names, as chosen by Cory:

     Timmy    Tammy   Daniel     Shirah     Micah     Ruth

Name these children competition!

I have just made a new set of magnetic wooden paper dolls to list in my Etsy shop, but they need names!
If you'd like to enter this competition, leave a comment with your suggestions (left to right).  If I choose your entry, your prize is a choice of any two of the dolls in my shop (including these new ones)
The competition closes on Saturday morning, 22nd May, Australian EST (wihich will be Friday night in the US).

My magnetic wooden paper dolls are mounted on 3mm craft wood, with a magnetic sheet sandwiched between the layers. Several coats of varnish give them protection from sticky little fingers!
The clothes, which have been laminated for strength and durability, can be attached with magnetic dots. Choose clothes to suit every occasion from the ever-growing wardrobe displayed in my shop: going to school, playing at home or having a sleepover.

Scrapbooking Giveaway Winner

Congratulations to Leslie of http://lesliepjackson.blogspot.com/ who won my scrapbooking giveaway.
It looks as though she can make good use of it, too.  here's what she had to say about her scrapbooking:

"I only started scrapping in Oct. 2008. Just before Christmas 2009, I totally finished my daughter's 1st book.... from the first ultrasound picture until her 1st birthday!

I have started on her 2nd book....day after 1st bday to 2nd bday, but I haven't been able to locate all the pics I need, so I stopped. I know...silly reason.

However.... my daughter will be SEVEN (7) in August, so I have some catching up to do. At least now, when I take pics, I think..."That would look good like (insert idea from my head) in her scrapbook." So I scrap as I snap now--at least in my head!"

Better to give than to receive.

Before reading on, please have a look at this: http://www.amkreations.blogspot.com/

There is more to this story.
I had had my suspicions as to whether Liz had included herself in the Secret Sibling when she had forgotten to send me details of who mine was until after the others had already been allocated.
So when my own gift turned out to be from Liz, I wasn't really surprised- but I was vey pleased!
Not only did I receive one of her beautiful hand made baskets, but it was filled with goodies, including my favourite dark chocolates, a "clean linen" scented candle, and was decorated with a spray of my favourite spring flowers- apple blossom!

When I convo'd her to say thank you, she replied saying that it was partly from Anita (author of the above blog and my secret sibling) -who had sold her the lovely blue and gold fabric (my favourite colour combination!)  That being so, the gift I in turn gave to Anita was in part from Liz, too!  Not being sure of how long it would take to get to the US, I had arranged to send it to Liz, who would forward it in time.  She refused to let me pay the additional postage, saying that was all part of the fun! To top it all off- Her gift to me had to be mailed to Australia, and the postage costs were far from cheap.  Some would have chosen a smaller, flatter parcel to send, because of the cost of shipping, but not Liz!

God will bless you, Liz.

"Give, and it shall be given to you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that you mete with it shall be measured to you again."  Luke 6:38
