Still experimenting folks - bear with me! At the very least I hope that a visit here leaves you laughing - even if its only at all my blunders! Having succeeded in getting a working link in my side  bar for biwubaer giveaway - but still no picture, I am now going to insert a picture into this post......

This 'Giveaway' picture
from BiWuBaren
is out of date but...
I like it too much to
delete it!
 ....... till I've published I wont know if it has worked but its looking good!

Birgit, I tried the instructions you kindly sent me but I wasnt given any opportunity to add a picture?  Obviously I must master this and
I will visit Jenny's "How To" page to-day but so far this morning I've
only managed to go and leave a comment on your Giveaway....then
another visit to your Witchtower which diverted me to Nicky's blog! 
My goodness, I couldn't believe it! At this moment in time my
particular passion is Dragons, Wizards, Skeletons and Steampunk
in any combination or setting that is crazy enough.  For me exploring
Nicky's work was like letting a chocoholic loose in Thornton's!! 

But I must now come back to some sort of reality - my two cats,
after having walked across my keyboard a couple of times
(near disaster!), made determined attempts to sit on my lap, they 
are now in the process of tying up spotted hankies on sticks and are
pulling on their walking boots - they are still waiting to be fed!! 
Be back later!

It seems that all I've written just lately has been 'thank you's' to visitors! Promises to keep adding interesting things haven't been kept so I better try a bit harder.  I have had a couple of days of visiting other blogs and Etsy shops and being so, so impressed and rather intimidated by the quality and standard, not only of the things people have made, but by the wonderfully professional way they have been presented.  It has been a joy doing this.  But a lot of frustration arises when I cant immediately find the right way to comment on the blog I'm visiting!  So until I've learned how to achieve that, I will just have to scuttle back to my blog and post about my visits and name names!
Yesterday I spent a long time on reading the lovely stories about Jennifer's characters - such great ideas. 
From there Jennifer provided a link to the wonderful world of Vicky at  That is a really special site and I'd love to ask Vicky some questions.  As she lives in the U.K. (so do I) - where is the beautiful beach she obviously visits a lot? 
To-day I've been browsing through Thank you for the translation - I enjoyed all that I saw - I think I managed to leave a comment..?? I also spent ages reading about The Witchtower Crew - great fun. Got inspiration from one of your photos, near the end, of what I could do with all the tiny creatures and people I've been 'rescuing' from charity shop kids  boxes for longer than I care to remember. At last they might find a 'life' out side their carrier bags!!
But here goes - I'm now trying to include the biwubaer giveaway picture.

If it doesn't work, feel free - all you seasoned bloggers - to let me know how I can put links, with picture, into my side bar?  
Another quick question - too much writing for one post.....??  Honest answers please!

Still not sure what I'm doing!  But I have just added some photos with descriptions.  Before I do any more I'm hoping I can check and see what they look like! A Small Sample......
Then I should go and try to catch up with Jaz and Debbie......
Well in the hope that this last attempt actually succeeded -  hello fellow bloggers......? I must admit that setting this blog up has cost me quite a lot of frustrating hours on my computer.  Must be losing my ability to follow instructions!  This is all the fault of Jazzi and her Christmas in July swap which she promoted on Minis4all.  Everyone else who signed up had a blog - not me! 
But if this has worked this time - I shall be eternally grateful Jaz. 
Now all I've got to do is make use of it.........!!
