Weird world and blog candy!

Slide show Poll.

There are 15 hours to go on the poll (NOW CLOSED, 2 VOTES TO KEEP 2 TO CHANGE) on the photographers effect on the slide show. Now to be fair and due to only one previous vote and apparent lack of interest I removed the photographers a while ago, substituted them for butterflies, got fed up with that, tried a few things and ended up with hearts!

Two people by then had voted for a different effect to photographers. Now with hours to go and no photographers to be seen somebody voted that they like the photographers!

I wonder if I should put them back until it ends!


On the stamp organisation front - I realised I put the stamps in rubber side down, which is wrong for storage, and I know I could have turned the Tuff boxes over but then the labels (and the lid) would be the wrong way up!

So today I renamed all the photos I took of each box, some boxes were labelled already but now have slightly different contents and half of them didn't have labels so I got the Dymo out and made labels. I have just realised there is a place on the handle for a label, I hadn't noticed before so had stuck them on the box next to the handles and they were always falling off or getting knocked off!

Blog Candy.

I have decided to give some blog candy to the crafter who guesses correctly (or closest to the correct number), how many wood mounted stamps do I have in the Tuff boxes.

I don't know the answer yet, I have to count them.

Here are some clues:
1. There are 17 Tuff boxes
2. The tuff boxes are A4 size
3. The stamps are different sizes
4. There are some gaps in a few of the boxes
5. There are some small foam stamps and one acrylic backed stamp which won't count.


The winner must be a crafter that has a craft blog, or is a member of a craft forum who has been posting photos of their work and can provide details that can be verified - link to blog or forum and your forum name!

The prize is likely to be a new stamp or stamps, and/or other bits! I haven't totally decided yet.

If more than one crafter guesses the right or same closest amount there will be a draw unless there are only two - then I might manage two prizes!

I will eliminate anyone who has more than two guesses (or two guesses with a big gap between them), and if there are two guesses close together because the first was wrong you must let me know, I will then only take the second guess regardless of which is correct.

(Please note that as I moderate all comments they won't appear right away, however if it is obvious that someone has posted the exactly the same comment with the same guess more than once I will let you off!.)

The closing date is 20th April.

  14. You have more stamps than our local craft shop LOL
    Sooooooo ... my guess is 228 wood mounted stamps.

    Good Luck with the counting.

    I know the poll is closed but I prefer the slideshow without the photographers.


  15. ok, i think 289, again completely random number

  16. You can only have one guess, if you have entered one in error and changed your mind as Louly did, you need to let me know! Louly did let me know which one is the one to take!

    If you don't let me know I will just take the last guess!

  17. I suppose 221 stamps would give you lots of ideas! Great contest!
