THE STAMP MAN BLOG HOP, CANDY AND AWARD EVENT!

Good morning!

I hope you’ve all had a great Christmas and are ready to have some more fun along with a chance to win prizes. There are 16 great prizes to win, one on each of the blogs you visit on the hop!

There are 2 things to join in with, the Blog Hop, and the Awards, they are separate events.  To avoid confusion the details are in separate posts.  I hope you will be able to join us for both.

What you need to do for the Blog Hop

Look for THE STAMP MAN BLOG HOP, CANDY AND AWARD EVENT title on each of the blogs you visit, as there may have newer posts added to the blogs during the week. (Look for the title in the blog archive list or scroll down to find it).

Each of the featured blogs will have a code, (a letter) that you will need to write down. Leave a comment, then hop over to the next blog, continue in the correct order to find the answer. If you get lost along the way, come back to The Stamp Man blog and start again.  Once you have completed the blog hop, please email me at thestampman@btconnect.com with your answer.

To be in with a chance of winning a prize you must leave a comment on EVERY blog you visit in the blog hop.

If you get carried away looking through the work on the blogs you visit and run out of time to complete the hop that day, make a note of where you stop and start again another day. You have a week to complete the blog hop, there is no rush to get to the end, enjoy the journey and admire the scenery along the way!

The blog hop ends at midnight (GMT) on Sunday 3rd January.


The Blog Hop Prizes

You won't know what the prizes are until you start hopping along! Each blog has been allocated a prize to tell you about as well as a letter code.

Once the hop is over, I will list the names of people who have won a prize to ask you to email your address to us so we can post it to you.  The prizes will be allocated randomly to the winners.

If you enjoy anagrams, just for fun, here are a few clues about the prizes

Scatterbrain Sent Its Soul

Know Immortal Gospel

Tasteful Buyer Bite

The blog hop starts here so... let’s get started, your first letter is H

The first of the prizes is…. A SELECTION OF MOONGLOW PRODUCTS


Your next blog to visit is Janet at This and That

Before you go, don't forget to leave a comment under this post!

Have fun, and remember to call back here to take part in the awards too!  (See the next post for details, and post your award entries there).

The blogs you will be visiting on the blog hop will also feature the best/favourite projects the ladies feel they have made in 2009 for you to enjoy along the way.  For doing this they too will receive the award!




My favourite project of 2009 has to be this concertina book/suitcase, I enjoyed collecting all the bits and pieces for it as much as I did making it.  Click here to read more about it
