TENDing to a blog hop today...

GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED

i have never ever ever done a blog hop before, truth be told things like that seem to be quite a responsibility and i am tres pants the moment i am given a deadline. however i was given plenty of time and i told myself this was a blog hop of the utmost importance and how fortunate was i to be invited to participate, and then all was well again...


TEND is a new online magazine which you may well have heard whispers or indeed shouts about around the blog-sphere. it is the brain child of Debbie from the blog my so called life life and other lies whom i have had the most loveliest of pleasures to know for quite the years in blogging land. she has a most fabby team of contributors who helped her bring life to her online magazine dream and you can find out who they are over here
i do think the title does a jolly good job about explaining what it is all about in a nutshell...


to nourish the head, the hand, the heart and the home
to take note of the bonds within your family, your world, and others in the world
to care about the food you put on your table and where it came from
to be inspired to live more cleanly and more ethically
and
to be incouraged to TEND to the small things in our day to day life
so we may in turn find happiness and harmony in the small things.
and perhaps in turn, the big things will follow and fall into place


yes, it is a magazine full of inspiring images, but it goes way beyond that, it is filled with sound advice, not tricky to understand or follow, simple recipes for healthy eating, ideas for the home and garden, educational topics for children and crafting how-tos (you will find one from me in there) which includes a knitting pattern, a sewing pattern, a bird project and other creative activities to do as a family or indeed as just yourself. it really has a lot of jolly good advice for folks to make a more informed choice of how they wish to TEND to their well being and that of those around them. 


you can also find quite brilliantly, a free seed packet template to print off and the bird embroidery patterns are available free to everyone who signs up for the newsletter. well that is quite marvelous! but wait, there is more... ("really Tif?"... "oh yes indeedy" say i)




if perchance you would like to win a free copy of TEND you can leave a comment here and i have a spiffy code to share which will give you 20% discount on the cost of TEND too. just enter in DOTTIE20 in the right little place for it to do its magical thing.


and last but not least, next on the blog hopping trail is the most peachy Heather from Shivaya Naturals where you can have another chance at winning a copy of TEND too! oh hurrah hooray.

or you can visit all these lovely folks who hopped before me and enter there too!

Those lovely pics in Trend reminded me of my favorite embroidered vintage tray cloth which has the words 'Oh wind, If winter comes, can Spring be far behind'.......
