Blog Candy - Copic set of 72 Markers!

Remember when we offered you the Copic 72 pen set? What a blog candy that was, right!! Well we're only doing it again!! 72 pens, YES 72. Want them?

Charmed Cards & Crafts have yet again teamed up with Graphics Direct Ltd to bring you this fantastic prize. Graphics Direct Ltd are probably the cheapest place to get your Copics' in the UK, and with outstanding customer service to boot. Although we sell several markers, such as Le Plume, we highly recommend Graphics Direct Ltd for THE place to get your Copics'.
The twist is that we want you to link to a project on your blog (in your comment) that either uses a download or a stamped image that you coloured in.
•Link to a card you made with a download or a stamped image (does NOT have to be one of ours).
•If you are using one of the Charmed Cards & Crafts downloads or Delectable stamps then you get two chances (please enter two comments, in the second just write "my second chance). All entries will be checked.
•Link to the candy on your blog.
Please note that if you leave more than the allowed amount of comments then you will not be eligible for entry.

This will run until 4th August. This post will stay on top until then. The final draw will be entirely random.

Staying the Course by BJ Gallagher

Our journey of life is about progress,
not perfection.
It's not about doing one thing
100% better -
it's a matter of doing 100 things,
1% better each day.

Progress is evolutionary
not revolutionary,
and most days we measure our progress
in inches,
not miles.

What matters most
is showing up for your life
whether you feel like it
or not.

Ask yourself,
"What two or three little things
can I do today
that would move me forward?"

You'll be amazed
at how much distance
you can cover
by taking it in increments.

The little things add up;
the inches turn to miles;
and we string together our efforts
like so many pearls.
Before long,
look what you have -
a whole strand!

Ah... beautiful.

Wasp Spray not just for Wasp......

Never would have thought it !!! Good though.....

Wasp Spray

I have a friend who is a receptionist in a church in a high risk area who was concerned about someone coming into the office on Monday to rob them when they were counting the collection. She asked the local police department about using pepper spray and they recommended to her that she get a can of wasp spray instead. The wasp spray, they told her, can shoot up to twenty feet away and is a lot more accurate, while with the pepper spray they have to get too close to you and could overpower you. The wasp spray temporarily blinds an attacker until they get to the hospital for an antidote. She keeps a can on her desk in the office and it doesn't attract attention from people like a can of pepper spray would. She also keeps one nearby at home for home protection. Thought this was interesting and might be of use.

Watch a video about it here:
