She's Baaaaaaack!


Well, we're now well and truly over the half way hump of Blogtoberfest. How is everyone faring???


If you played along last year, you may remember the journey of SuperPops. I had a little creative competition where I asked everyone join in and create their own version of the character. I also managed to publicly humiliate myself on the www.  It was so much fun, that I now have an entire bloggy page dedicated just to SuperPops.


This weeks giveaway is following the SuperPops theme....

The prize will be a B2 size mailing box jam packed full of crafty goodness.

I'm making you work for it this week - to enter, just leave me a comment answering the following question:

If you had a superpower, what would it be, and why???

Just to keep it fair, I'll get my sister to pick the funniest entry as the winner - entries close Friday 22nd October at 8PM.

***Oh, and if you like SuperPops, you can find her in the shop!

That's so funny - I was just re-reading my post where I unveiled my entry into your SuperPops challenge!!

My super power would be to win every giveaway I entered ;-)

Blogtoberfest has been a challenge! But fun!

My super power would be to stop people feeling crap about themselves for no reason :)
Boring, but we a great power to have!

She's cool btw!

Ooh - super powers - I would like to be like Dr Doolittle and be able to talk to animals. Particularly if I get to live in that great big pink snail shell thingy.

HayleyK said...

Hmmm. If I had a super power it would be to be invisible. Who wouldn't want to sneak up on someone and listen in to conversations? Or, ok, let's be real, see certain people naked!

My super power would be - when I'm talking to really boring people, for example who don't understanding blogging, MY HEAD WOULD EXPLODE!

They run off screaming and my head would magically reform in a super power way, and with each reformation I get smarter (and younger)!

My super power would be to give people the ability to see life though the eyes of another person for a few minutes. That way we could become more caring and tolerant.

there are so many superpowers that I could use to benefit from but I think that for certain times when the little monkeys are driving me nuts, like having a tantrum at a store because they are tired (pittiful excuse) well, I reckon it would be funny if for that instant I could change into a 3 yr old myself & they would transform into an adult & I could throw my own tantrum. that would stop them in their tracks!

Selina said...

How funny! This is something my husband and I have already discussed. You might be aware that with my medical condition comes very salty sweat. So salty in fact that it actually rusts things. I can't have too much bling on a handbag for example, as it ends up rusty. And my keys and keyrings get rusty too. So, I already have a super power. RustWoman. No fortress could contain me. I would just have to sweat on the bars and I would send it rusty and then be free! Mwaahaaahaaa! (that is meant to be an evil laugh!)

Cath @ chunkychooky said...

Hmmmm, I think it would just be to sprout wings- like big gorgeous coloured feathered angel looking ones and fly, but not have the wings all the time as it would be hard to lay down.

I am finding blogtober pretty good really, not nearly as hard as I thought it would be.

Becky said...

I wish I was like Babe the pig and could control sheep, sure it sounds like a strange power to wish for but we just marked lambs this weekend and with no sheep yards this was hard. Picture me running, panting, diving, catching, tripping, falling, sweating, swearing....

'Baa Ram Ewe' indeed ;)

Mandy said...

I'd definitely want *super speed* No more watching in horror as my daredevil baby attempts to fall off the coffee table (again!) and being unable to get there in time to catch him. No more kids being late getting to school (yet again). Just imagine - no one else having a chance with the best online sales....bwahahahaha. Housework? pffft. 10.5 seconds and the house is spotless. And just imagine the amount of *crafting* you could get in!?! Only problem? Finding a sewing machine fast enough to keep up :P

Miss Amy said...

I want a cleaning superpower, one where I close my eyes, imagine a clean house, and when I opened my eyes it was real.... I think I would put it to good use in my crafty space!

GemmaJoy said...

Flying! It would be nice to travel and not have to sit on a plane for hours

Yvylyn Shaan-Lu said...

so funny - I was just putting together a "superhero" post for today when I read this (will be up in an hour or so...). I think my superpower (when I have enough energy, or as my daughter says, "power"!)is to be able to make dinner from whatever random stuff we have at home, and have it mostly edible!!

Tanya said...

So easy. So easy. What would happen would be, I would walk into a room in my house, glance around, glance back and everything would be where it belonged (things would magincally, have a place to belong), beds would be made, crap would be chucked out (that's part of the superpower- the deciding whats crap bit). Then I would knick off and sew- not that I spend my time cleaning and decluttering now, but I do spend my time moving things from one pile to another and feeling like I should be doing those things. I would have a clear head and be constantly inspired. Do you think I am asking too much?! And CHEERS- to blogtoberfest!

Swirlyarts said...

Hmmm my genuine super power would be to understand, communicate and converse fluently in every language in the world (it would be very handy!) and my funny one would be to convert farts into super turbo boosts so that we could get up to school quicker in the mornings - not that I fart you understand ;) I'm also thinking the super tidying super power would be very useful in this house too.

tartankiwi said...

I would like the superpower that my husband has. To be able to successfully clear the scene about 5 minutes before my daughter dirties her nappy. Only to casually saunter back into the room when the nappy change is complete!

Brighton Breezy said...

My superpower would be that when I talk or sing people would see colour as well as hear sound!

I have synaesthesia, so to me this is not a superpower, it's just normal, but I would love others to experience it.

Clarinda said...

I would like to be able to clone myself. So when the children are super whingy, I leave my clone to deal with it while I sneak off and eat chocolate, I could get my clone to go to the gym for me and to clean the toilet each day. (I have 3 sons- say no more)

Liz said...

Hmmm, my super power would have to be to be able to do the housework by clicking my fingers. No more spending ages matching socks or scrubby the bathroom - but more time to sew :)

Tania said...

Owww... my superpower would be to take away the pain of sick people, especially from my husband and kids (of whom i have one sick at home right now)

Rob B said...

Oooh my super power would definately have to be the Anti-fatigue-anti-hangover power! There's nothing I love more than having a glass or two while I sew when Hubby is off on night shift, but I always stay up too late and feel seedy the next morning :)

Flying - I would love to be able to fly

B @ Sweet Limes said...

My super power would have to do with driving. I'm amazed at how people can't drive properly around here and I always dream of being able to send my thoughts to them while they are being stupid. Of course I have always thought it would come up on their dash for pure clarification reasons. Imagine having, "MOVE OVER SNAIL!" come up beside your gas gauge or, "turn your bloody signal off already". Not sure how that would equate to a super power, but that would totally be it if I could make it work.

I have always wanted to be able to turn invisible at will - my main motivation for this used to be to get into movies for free, but now I realise there are unlimited posibilities... mind you, most of these posibilities are decidedly unethical, even illegal (tell me you wouldn't saunter unseen into the bank & help yourself to some pocket money, freaking peeps out with the ol'floating bowling bag in mid-air trick...), so I am thinking it would be more of an anti-super-power... I wouldn't be saving kittens or jumping tall buildings with a single bound, more like stowing away on luxury cruise ships & luxuriating in the spa with a single malt...

Weatherbee ;) said...

Hmmm...if I had a super power, I would choose stretchy abilities like Elastagirl in The Incredibles! I could grab stuff from another room, catch a kid falling off a chair, grab milk out of the fridge while stirring dinner...I could do it all. Because let's be realistic here, I'm a stay at home mom, where am I going to fly to?? Reading minds...the kid's guilt is written all over their faces anyways! Invisibility...what the heck for???....oh wait, I think I just thought of a better super power, what if you could slow down time??? Then you could do all of that stuff, and take a break in between, all in a seconds time! Now THAT would be a nice super power!!

Thanks for the giveaway! And the brief daydream. :)

Karen said...

Why would I waste the chance to have a super-power on anything but the ability to eat as much chocolate as I like without ever gaining weight!!
I wish!
Can SuperPops help me with this???
