I was talking to a friend of mine the other day and I mentioned I'd recieved a parcel from a blog friend of mine and she (my friend) commented on how lucky I was to have such a nice friend ,which of course I am (The bloggy friend in question is This Lovely Lady ).
But it got me to thinking and I realised that the internet is a wonderful place to be...and yet it is portrayed by the media as a evil place populated by only paedophiles and murderers.
Now theres no denying the internet has played its part in helping some of these people commit the most terrible of crimes and it bothers me terribly to think that criminals like this have access to the internet.
But no one ever mentions the good things that happen on the internet...the people that meet and marry, the funds raised for charity, petitions for unjust treatment of political prisoners etc etc
On a more personal level though... I have met some lovely people through my time on the internet both from my gaming experiences and my time as a blogger and in celebration of these great friends I am going to hold a giveaway...
So the main giveaway prize will be some Gisella Graham lovlies, yankee candles, a little tin filled with buttons and beads , an FQ of the lovely red spotty fabric behind my goodies and a hand crocheted brooch (which I haven't made yet so its not in the picture).
A runner-up will get a little tine filled with buttons and beads, an FQ, a yankee candle and a crocheted brooch.
I'll keep my giveaway open until 9th August as I am going to be so incredibly busy in the next couple of weeks with the run up to my sisters wedding.
To enter become a follower and please leave a comment, I'll draw two names at random on 10th August.
I'd love it also if you would add my giveaway to your sidebar.
One last thing ...this is open to bloggers all over the world!!
Heres to friendship!!
