wish upon a star

So what's in a name ? I am hooking up on this little link at Dawns blog, As sweet as cinnamon she is having a giveaway so come and join in!
I guess everyone can remember the walt disney movie where pinoccio has a wish to be a real boy, it seems most of us have looked up into the sky and made a little wish, sometimes they come true if you believe hard enough, i think being a bit of a dreamer helps!

The only problem i had when naming the blog was that i liked the url also, which i probably should have kept the same, but once started it seemed too hard to change!

There are loads of things i would love to do in this lifetime, so i guess this blog is a bit of a bucket list in some ways, i have been fortunate enough to travel to the places i really wanted to see before i got too old and crumbly!

And i have taken up a hobby in quilting which i first started many years ago, and started looking at what other crafty things were out there in the www, so this blog seemed like the way to share ideas. It doesnt matter how many followers there are, or how styled the photos are, its the substance behind that counts, and there are plenty of amazingly talented beings to admire!
Thanks for stopping by and taking a little look into my world!

You know, I've never noticed your URL - I found your blog linked from somewhere else, liked what I saw, copied the URL to my reading list and didn't think any more about it! Well, there you go!! LOL

I love the name you've given your blog and I absolutely GET it ! Although the URL is great too , it is perhaps a bit restrictive so I think you made a great choice.
This has been a great idea hasn't it?... and the give away is good too!

I love the name of your blog and like Helsie I think the URL as a title might have been restrictive whereas Wish upon a Star can cover absolutely anything you fancy can't it. Glad you have managed to see and do so many of the things you really want to do already and hope that you will have many more wishes coming true before too long.
