I'm not in the habit of highlighting give-aways and blog candy and the like because, well, to be honest, I don't always feel that a give-away that comes with conditions about linking and widgets and stuff is really up to me to promote. This isn't a personal rule though...I think it's probably more about being bone idle. But there are always things that motivate me more than others. And I want to tell you about two give-aways that are really just gifts. Of course, because I found them and am telling you, I'm going to claim a whole lot of credit. 'Specially if you enjoy them!
First, Stephanie and Dori over at Luscious Life Studios have, for the second month, produced free wallpaper to download..as you can see. There's 3 colours to choose from and even instructions!! (Which is why I'm using them on my itoys!)
And then, Elizabeth, WOYWW friend and Altered Book Lover is offering a completely free Altered Book course. Using a real stitched book, altering it properly. It's going to appear as a lesson on her blog, so there's no extra linking or finding. You won't have to join a group. You aren't asked to put a badge in your sidebar. You don't have to commit. Hell, you don't even have to admit that you're taking part. And already, following that link, you'll learn something about books and about the quality of the course that Elizabeth is offering. For free. It's free. And now you're going to learn something about the commitment phobic keeper of this blog. The one that pays for a class, downloads it over the weeks, files it and never looks at it again. I'm doing this Altered Book course. Elizabeth makes me feel like I can, and has promised not to laugh. See, there are so few conditions attached to taking part in her course, that I imposed my own condition..no laughing at my attempts. And so, and so, in the broad daylight, I'm choosing my book. It was going to be a Delia Smith recipe book (really, that woman, that sainted woman gets right on my nerves!)..but there are too many pictures. So now I'm going to look upstairs in my vast boxed collection. Don't come and get me..I'm going to enjoy this!
