The Crafty Scribe Communiqué - The Count's Sad News

News Flash... Communiqué... News Flash

Dear Scribblers

I heard some very sad news today. Jerry Nelson who voiced Count von Count in Sesame Street has died.

The Count has always had a special place in my heart as I explained in a previous communiqué -

In fact, the Count was with me last weekend when we visited a favourite pub which was converted from a church. I though he looked splendid in his lair!

The joy and learning that Mr Nelson gave to millions of children worldwide will never be forgotten. We thank you, sir.

In remembrance.

Happy Scribing!

The Crafty Scribe Inspiration Corner

Dear Scribblers

Something a little different from me today. A friend posted this photo onto their Facebook page and I had to share.

This dog meets his cat friend everyday and they go for a walk! You can tell what great friends they are, can't you? So inspirational... and very cute too!

I wish I could tell you where the photo comes from. If you know, please let me know and I'll add the correct details here straight away. Credit where credit's due.

I've been a little poorly Crafty Scribe, hence the posting delay. I promise you I'll be back soon with the next series - Scrapbooking Your Holiday.

See you soon!

Happy Scribing!

The Crafty Scribe Communiqué - CHA & ScrapTime iBooks Recommendation

Communiqué... News Flash... Communiqué

Dear Scribblers

Did you, like me, miss out on going to CHA last month? I'm not one of the lucky ones who has ever been, even though I would love to, but at least we get to see lots of photos from all the wonderful bloggers who attend, right?

How about going one better and seeing video? Check out Christine Urias and her crafty fact-packed video podcasts, Scrap Time. Not only has she uploaded a ton of inspiration from CHA Summer 2012, she also posts regularly to show products and techniques.

Christine has now expanded into the world of iBooks, creating crafting books on a number of subjects, including this one! CHA Summer 2012

Not only is it a full colour book jammed full of fabulous photos, its also includes lots of videos for you to watch... and it's FREE!

I enjoy watching all of Christine's videos and I've learnt so much from her, I promise you, it's worth a look.

Happy Scribing!

Just A Note:
As always, these posts are my own views.
I do not get paid or reimbursed, in any form, from any supplier mentioned.
I write about 'em, because I like 'em! ;-)

Communiqué... News Flash... Communiqué...

Dear Scribblers

Just a little reminder asking you to pop along to my other blog - 555 Days as a Poet and take a look at the daily entries. It's a tough track I'm trekking and I would love some people along for the journey.

Please pass the details onto all your poem reading and verse writing pals, and even those new to poetry, you might find a stanza that resonates that soul string deep within you.

Hop on over, I'd love to see you there.

Happy Scribing!

The Crafty Scribe Communiqué - A Recommendation - Books by Nick Spalding

Communiqué... New Flash... Communiqué...

Dear Scribblers

You know how much I like to craft and write. You also know how much I love to read.

I thought today I would introduce you to an author some of you may not of heard of... yet, but his popularity is growing rapidly with the Kindle and iBooks release of his "Love... " books. In fact, he is a best selling author, sitting in the top 100, then 20 and top 10, at various times, for many months. Just pipped at the post by all those "Shades of Grey."

 At the time of writing,
his most popular book,
"Love... from Both Sides"
is at 24 on the UK Kindle chart.

His name is Nick Spadling. In fact, his own pages on Amazon, and his blog, speak for themselves.

The books are laugh-out-loud funny, but I warn you, they are not for delicate readers.

Take a look, you might "Love..." them!

Happy Scribing!
