The more I explore the world of blogs, the more I learn about nifty little features. Yesterday, I discovered the 'Follow This Blog' feature, which is kind of like a stalker's best friend: it lets me know the moment new posts are up on my favourite blogs. I had a blast adding many sensational blogs and sites to my list, which you can view here.

After I became an Official Stalker of 20 other blogs, I wanted to know if anyone was stalking me... and they weren't! What's a girl without her own Official Craft Stalkers, I asked myself? Not a true blogger, that's what!

I sat my staff down to work on our plan, officially dubbed Mission Stalker-Getter. Monsieur the ginger cat was not so interested in stalkers- he tells me that as he is such a good looking French man, his stalkers come to him naturally. Tango the Bichon was far more interested in chewing on his bone than in helping me out, and Manhattan the Malamute was busy wrestling with a freshly-planted tree. It was Coco the cat who came through with the best idea: having a giveaway!

So, here's the deal:

Everyone who becomes a Stalker of Pepperberry & Co. by signing up as a 'Follower' shall go in the draw to win one personalised Notebook Cover made by me. You will have the pleasure of choosing the colours that inspire you and having the personalised cover delivered right to your door. If you're lucky, I'll even ask Coco if she can sit on the cover whilst I'm making it and donate some of her fur!

So, don't dilly-dally: the winner will be chosen at random on Sunday, April the 19th. I look forward to being Officially Craft Stalked by you!

Well, I happen to be a stalker without being a Follower, lol. I subscribe to your blog, but I recently found out that Subscribing and Following are different, only in the fact that if I Follow, then you know I Follow :) So.. I'm now a Follower Stalker :)

I'll happily stalk you... since I'm partly responsible for the new SEWING you... I'm very interested to read what you get up to!

I have been stalking you for a while (by having your blog in my bookmarks!) I didn't know I could become a follower... Thanks for informing me of something new and thank you for all the beautiful things that you do!

Hello and welcome to everyone! Thank you so much for choosing to stalk me :-) I'm glad this is the good, crafty kind of stalking, and not that strange hiding-in-bushes type!

I love to respond to every comment personally, as that's what really inspires me about blogging. For some comments, though, I only get a generic no-reply blogger email address, so please forgive me if I don't get back to you! If you haven't heard from me (mainly Janya) then please feel free to get in touch with me via email (littlemisspepperberry AT gmail DOT com) so we can chat :-)

Thanks gorgeous Pepperberrians!

xx Sandra

I also find myself looking for stalkers (the good kind). I think I might even install some felt bushes on my blog for people to hide behind!

I'll just be a stalker, but I'm not a follower (harhar). I don't like what following does on my google reader, so I don't do it. Oh, and thanks for that yummy cuke recipe!

I would love to stalk your blog officially, but my computer does funny things - maybe you could guide me through the process!

But you already know that I follow your blog and I just love hearing what you get up to!!! Now must try that cucumber salad recipe - it is the only vegetable my youngest son will eat!

Hi Sandra
Added my name to your followers a few days ago, but my comment didn't publish... something to do with my internet connection at work I think.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend.
Cheers.

Your 'stalker' post made me giggle, enough so that I've been talked into stalking your blog! Hope to see many more crafty/funny posts from your blog! :)

Sandra,

I just found your blog from "ric-ric" blog, and I love it! I was going to "follow" even before I read about the "giveaway", so here I am, letting you know as soon as I'm done writing this, I will be a stalking blogger. :D
Thanks for making "blog-land" that much more creative!

I know I'm probably too late for the giveaway, and that's fine. I'm just glad to have found your blog. Looks great. I think I came over from RicRac but I click on so many links that sometimes I get confused!
