Thanks for popping in. Just been unpacking, after a fab week in the Netherlands. So enjoyed it. And the little carrot characters we doodled today just make me smile.
But today is the day we find out who won the Blog Candy! Remember on Monday? I asked you to see how many words you could make out od the phrase on the card I made?
All things Grow with Love.
Well, I thought I’d have a little dabble myself, and when I’d found 40, I thought, “that’ll do donkey,” “that’s respectable”
So imagine my surprise – nay, my incredulity – when the emails started pouring in. 145, 150, 170, 203, 226, 239, climbing climbing, 271,
Beautiful, painstakingly handwritten lists of words….isn’t that just wonderful?
climbing climbing…321, 357, then huge leap! 641! What!!?? Can‘t be. And whilst I was trying to figure out how, in came 743, then 750, then 800! And still it kept climbing…846, 935, 980.
Then the count topped 1,000. Yep. 1,100, even 1195. And it finally stopped at 1231. Let me say that slowly for you…
One thousand, two hundred and thirty one words made from ALLTHINGSGROWWITHLOVE. That truly is remarkable, isn’t it?!
And who is the crazy, clever person who topped the charts, and blew the doors off?
Blimey Gill. You must have been working on that list into the night!!! Well done to you, and actually, blimming well done and hats off to every single one of you good people, who joined in. You ALL beat me!!! Who knew that you were such wordsmiths?!?!? I always knew that our Clarity friends were bright sparks, but what dedication!!
So a £20 Clarity Gift Voucher goes to a very worthy winner, Gill.
And the other cheeky little blog candy was won by ‘Yvonne’, who sent in a one liner – and nailed how the card was made totally.
Looks great, it’s the stamp of the bird table which we did in the Shac Shac! And some Pergamano colouring pencils as well as some lovely paper which I spend time looking at rather than using!!
Well done to you too Yvonne. Comical really. Hundreds of collective hours were spent in the drafting of these wordlists, and Yvonne swoops in with a sentence.
All good fun. Thanks for joining in all you lovely, lovely people. Something about the Lockdown and the Schac-Shack has created a shift in our relationship, hasn’t it? Maybe it’s because we hang out together nearly every day!!
Have a great weekend! See you tomorrow.
And don’t forget! We’re on the telly – HOCHANDA.com tomorrow 11am and 3pm.
