Wow Jenny what a giveaway! + non reply bloggers

Would you like to see what Jenny of Elefantz is giving away
and you could win just by popping by her blog and entering her Giveaway!
Have a look at this!

( wish I could enter..ssh.. don't tell Jenny...
I could say be umm... 'Freda Floss'.... hehe)

1. A pattern pack for my "Shabby Roses Beaded Cushion", complete with gorgeous Gutermann beads!

2. A copy of my favourite quilt book, the newly released (and not released yet in some countries!) "Material Obsession Two"!

3. Two fat quarters from the gorgeous new "Birdie" range from Me and My Sister!

4. A huge Sandy Gervais panel from her Celebrate Spring range, complete with 3 pretty quilt labels!!
Now it has come to my attention that some of you wonderful commenters are
Non- Reply bloggers..... What does this mean?
It means that when you make a comment to a blog we can not
reply to your comment through email...
or if you enter my Giveaway I can not add your comment to it unless you have written in your comment your email address.
How to make sure that you can get replies to your comments via email........
1. go to your Dashboard of your blog or your Account
2. then go to Edit Profile
3. click on this... will be in Edit User Profile
4.Go down to where there is a box called 'Show my Email address' make sure there is a tick in this box
and when you comment now you can receive replies........
the only time anyone sees this address is when you comment on a blog, the blog owner then gets an email and they can reply to you.
Also when viewers go to your profile and they click on email me...
It does not mean that the whole world will see your address when your blog is looked at
I have never had a problem
In fact I have met some very dear blogging friendsjust
by leaving a comment on a blog and them replying.
Like Joypatch, we have known each other for a fair while now because I left a message on a blog and the blog owner could reply to me and hooked me up to Joypatch for a swap.
Hope this helps some of you!
Hugs and blessings Dawn x x

Hi Dawn,
I have correct my Profile so thanks for the Tip

Allie said...

ALL your give-aways are wonderful! I too have met so many wonderful friends through blogging, I try hard to track down no-reply commenters as I love to reply to comments, but sometimes you just can't. You gave very good instructions for changing it!

Rachel Bates said...

This is fun and sometimes confusing but you all are great to get together and give us some fun. I am a follower if you and Gum Tree and am commenting. Don't know your plans but am loving the inspiration.

Denise :) said...

Ummm, yes, it helped A LOT! So, do we need to go back and do entries again if we were not set up correctly the first time? I hope not. You don't need that! :) I hope this is generating a lot of interest for you all! Happy weekend! :)

Oh I have become a follower of the Gum Tree Design and can't wait to see the 9 designs you ladies come up with. Now if I can only figure out how to get your buttons on my Blog page -- said with deep heavy sigh.

Thanks for the opportunity to see some beautiful work and may be even produce some!

I can't believe all these wonderful blogs were out there and I knew nothing about them. They really buzz with enthusiasm, great ideas and most of all, a desire to share their love of this craft with as many people as possible.
I've spent a morning just cutting up pieces of fabric and then stitching them together again, In a different order, of course...haha! :>)
Warm wishes Angela
