Been meaning to show you some of my new acquisitions, since Christmas!
Bad, bad blogger that I am.
I've always admired Alicia Singleton's lovely little Alliebean Doll's, especially her little Monsters. I was captivated the first time, I saw one picking its nose, I know its gross, but so, so cute, but I've never been lucky enough to get one. I've always been too late. Just before Christmas, I happened to see Alicia's post, on her facebook, about some little Reindeer's, that she would be putting in her Etsy Shop. I hightailed it over there pretty sharpish and was lucky enough to secure one of the five that Alicia, was making.
Alicia, contacted me and asked what I wanted my little Reindeer to look like. I asked for his tongue to be sticking out. Then I saw that Alicia, had also put a little Monkey in her Ebay shop, so I popped over to have a look, and low and behold, there in her Ebay listings, was a little Monster, on a buy it now. Well I didn't need to think about it twice and brought him. Mick gave me the money for the purchases, for Christmas (Reindeer) and my Birthday (Monster). Alicia, put them both in the same package. I am absolutely delighted with them. They are currently sitting together in my Glass cabinet, so that I can admire them, but I do have an idea for the little Monster.
I also fell in love, with the beautifully painted Polka Dot bowls, by Nikki. I do love Polka Dots. Nikki, also had some lovely Toadstool Cake stands, so treated myself to one of those as well. I also had some wonderful miniature gifts, from Nikki for Christmas. I'll show you them later.
Just to let you all know that Nikki, has recently opened a shop over on Folksy. Its very similar to Etsy, but is UK based.
Just to let you all know, that I have removed the link, from my post below. I had a telephone call, from Ben earlier and he has nearly reached his quota on his survey.
He would like to say thank you to all that shared his link and taken part in his survey so far.
As you all know my Son Ben, is a third year Psychology Student at University. He is conducting a study on Gaming
behaviour, for his dissertation. The survey takes all of 5 minutes to complete and the only requirement is
that you regularly play some kind of video game, even if its only facebook games and that you are based in the United Kingdom.
Ben is putting up a prize of a £20 Amazon Voucher, for one lucky participant.
only need a total of 300 participants so that's pretty good odds of
winning £20 for only 5 minutes of your time. The survey closes 20th February 2013, so
get in there quick. Please note you need to submit at the end of the survey, to be
entered into the draw.
