#QueenOf Favours

I have started writing this blog at 2am Friday 11th September.

Why am I up so early you ask? I have to escapees to deliver to the airport so went to bed around 8pm in the hope of getting at least a couple of hours sleep!

You may recall I won #OrderOfFabulous from http://www.theroyalconnection.co.uk ? Well, as of around 8pm last night I became #QueenOf Favours too!

I will finish and publish this blog once I have my new badge but will include my #OrderOfFabulous badge too!

It is now a few days later and I now have my new #QueenOf Favors badge – woohoo!

#QueenOf #OrderOfFabulous

Good morning, it is a little while since my last blog!

You may remember my blog last month where I  told you about my #SBS win from @TheoPaphitis? Well, this month has been just as exciting as I tweeted Andy Quinn of http://www.theroyalconnection.co.uk and won #QueenOf #OrderOfFabulous!

As soon as I have my badge I will post it onto my Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/charmsbyjoanna

I am overwhelmed! Lots of new Twitter followers and new likes to my page as well as fast paced networking hours!

If you want to be in with a chance to win too then here is what you do

For women in business – Thursdays between 9am and 9pm send a tweet to @ADG_IQ about your business and make sure you include #QueenOf – read other people’s tweets and share/interact and keep your fingers crossed

For men in business – Tuesday between 9am and 9pm send a tweet to @ADG_IQ about your business and make sure you include #KingOf – read other people’s tweets and share/interact and keep your fingers crossed

Good luck and a big thank you to Andy Quinn for selecting me in the first place!

Some of you may already know this but I like to help others.

My mum raises money for Cancer Research UK so we attend craft fairs and I help promote her #HappyBags and over the years they have gone as far as Australia (maybe when someone lives on the moon we can send some there!)

I am also a MoSista helping to raise money for Mens Health Awareness by donating money from the sale of any item with a moustache.

And my latest one is MK Pride. They are local to me and I met the directors when they organised an LGBT friendly wedding fair a couple of years ago. I have started to donate a portion of the sale of any rainbow themed item. This can be bold as brass with rainbow coloured beads or very subtle with a heart charm that says “Rainbow Love”. Ether way I will donate some of that sale to MK Pride so anyone wishing to purchase something to help can contact me to discuss what they would like.

Here are some of the things you can purchase to help any of the above charities.

standard #HappyBags are £1.50 each plus postage satin and lace #HappyBags are £2 each plus postage £1 from every bag will go to Cancer Research UK

#SBS Winner

Well, all I can say is OMG! It has been a while since I wrote a blog as I am never too sure what to write. Today I have no excuse as this needs to be shouted from the highest rooftops!

I am stunned because I am one of this week’s #SBS winners!

If you do not know what that is then do please click on this link and have a read.

The last couple of days have been unbelievable! Sunday evening I tweeted to @TheoPaphitis and tagged #SBS and thought no more of it as I know he has about 450,000 followers and loads of people tweeting him within the time slot.

Monday evening my phone went from water drips when I receive Twitter activity to more like a running tap!

The first messages I saw were congratulations, I had quite a few tweets to scroll down to find the one that was Theo Paphitis ReTweeting my tweet! I had won! He only RTs 6 people out of all of the small businesses who have tweeted him the evening before.

I am so excited! I have already been chatting to some of the other winners and a couple of my friends won previously – onward and upward – let’s see where this takes me.

Like I said – soooooooo excited!

here is my original tweet

Christmas

Well, Movember finishes today, these charms will be available throughout the year with 50p still going to support changing the face of men’s health.

Shall we move on to Christmas?

Have you put your Christmas tree up yet? Mum used to wait until the Sunday before and take it down the Sunday after.

I live in a tiny 1 bed flat with a hubby and dog. They take up a little bit of space, however, my craft items take up almost every available spot except for walk space so we only have a teeny weeny tree LOL.

I have been making tree decorations for a few weeks now, there are plenty of choices from the charms, bead types/colours and even ribbon/cord colour. To help those of you who are in the same boat as me I have also created so diddy charms that are only around 10cm (4″) long, perfect for a diddy tree.

Please be a responsible parent/grandparent. As with all small items, please do not give them to small children or allow small children to play with them, many of the beads I use are glass so are more than just a choking hazard, they could also cause internal damage if swallowed.

There is also still time to order hand decorated boxes, my last ordering date for them is 15th December to give me enough time to make sure they are dry before posting.

Last posting date for items ready made is 18th December
