Grow Your Blog

Hi new people I'm Ziggyeor: aka Melissa Cook! My name I made years ago when I first started on the internet. Think of Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh with Ziggy Stardust red hair and that's what I was thinking of.
You have come to a very loopy place. One day it will be scrapbooking, another stitching, a few photos of orts, reading, maybe some beer and wine making and whenever we get the new pets I'm sure they'll be in there too. There maybe posts of my dresses and skirts and my obsession with pretty tights and hats. Sometimes there will be long stretches of nothing because I've looped somewhere else in the internet. But I'll get a few people to message me and ask what's up when I don't post so it will hopefully be a good blogging year for me. Other things I love are: Eeyore (obviously), bunnies, David Bowie (so excited he has a new album coming out), Zachary Quinto (yeah had to buy the Spock action figure with removable hand for $5 just cause :) He'll look good next to my Viggo Mortensen as Stryder figure), getting into Star Trek, Whovian, Sherlockian (Steven Moffat ruins my life), Graphic Novels, Neil Gaiman, Carson McCullers, Dorothy Parker, and the colors yellow and purple. Was that eclectic enough for you? Things I have going on currently to keep me posting is a Winter Reads program. You have to read 6 books by March 6th and comment on the current weeks blog posts (I went on vacation last Wednesday and forgot to post!) You will be entered to win a stitched by me bookmark. Also, a friend on facebook posted this fun make your Madam Name So if you have a good or terrible (as mine was) Madam name you can comment there and I will enter you in the drawing to see who's Madam name I will stitch for them. Trying to find my Mardi Gras Themed mini patterns from one of my Cross-Stitch and Needlework Mags. My loopy sense of humor thinks it would be hilarious to stitch up the name, especially mine in a sampler pattern or some such :) For The Grow Your Blog - Blog Hop I will stitch yet another thing! LOL all this stitching but I will get it done! Comment on this post and I will stitch you a book mark of your choosing from Stoney Creeks X-marks the spot book.
All the bookmarks are on the front cover and you can tell me your color preference if you want something changed and I will see what I have in my sprawling stash. This post will be updated Feb 1st with the winner. Thank You for coming by my loopy trail and I hope you enjoyed your stay! UPDATE True Random Number Generator Min: Max: Result: 7 Powered by RANDOM.ORG THE 7TH PERSON IS EMILY C! So dream bookmark with the butterfly it is. Do you like those colors? Thanks for everyone who stopped by my blog. I never made it through the whole blog list but I had fun stopping by what I could and I'll try to keep blogging through!

Love those bookmarks. You can never have too many bookmarks!

I've added a Shelfari gadget to my Happy Dance blog to keep track of the books I'm reading to my son this year. Brisingr is the current tome (700 pages out loud!)
