Grow Your Blog Blog hop - January 24th

I figured a few extra followers of my blog would be nice so I joined the "Grow Your Blog" blog hop

I guess I ought to introduce myself.



I'm Sarah, 36, and live in Loughborough Leicestershire England with my long suffering other half G. I break things frequently but G is brilliant at fixing things so we're perfect for one another.

As well as working in a jewellery making warehouse, I design jewellery, make it, and sell it at numerous craft fairs, festivals and markets. I also attempt to grow vegetables in my garden.

I'm also a bookcrosser, geocacher, knitter, and general all round crafter. I also hoard things because "you never know"

I've found over the years that writing isn't for me, but I love sharing photos. This year I'm taking part in a Photo a Day which I'm really enjoying. A new phase to my blogging life!

I used to blog a lot on livejournal but since less and less people are using that particular website, I've decided to make my blogging home on Blogspot. I have 46 followers from all around the world and I read blogs daily.

  1. I'm already a follower to your blog and I love the photos you are posting each day. I'm participating in the party too and I'm holding a giveaway at my blog. Come and visit me.

  8. Oh, Sarah, to live in a place that's name ends in "shire" - **sigh** - I can only dream about that. I'm here for the GYB party and know I'll come back often to have a look at your daily photos. Please keep the ones of the shire coming! I'm already regretting not having planted snowdrops this year! I read about them in one of British author Beverly Nichols' books and have wanted to plant them ever since. I hope you'll come visit me over at TheCranesNest.com and be sure to say hello!
