A Little Blog Candy


I was looking at my calendar and reflecting on all the reasons that I have to celebrate over the next few months. We have our daughter’s birthday, our wedding anniversary, Thanksgiving, a chance to see family that lives far away, my brother’s birthday, my husband’s birthday, friends’ birthdays, Christmas and that is just the start.

Since all this put me in a good mood, I decided I would offer up a little blog candy to my crafting friends. I have 2 My Mind’s Eye Six by Six pads (Darling Dear & All Spice) to give away to 1 random winner. (Both can be seen HERE on the MME website. Sorry for the fuzzy picture.)

What do you have to do?

  • FOR 1 ENTRY - Be a follower of my blog and leave me a comment. Tell me what you are looking forward to over the next few months or even just say “Hi”.
  • FOR A 2nd ENTRY – Let your friends know about my blog candy give away either in a post or in your blog sidebar. Please post the above photo and linking it back to my blog,
  • Maximum of 2 entries per person.
  • No candy only blogs please.

Enter using the linky tool below by 12-15-2011. I will post the name of the winner (chosen using on my blog by 12-17-2011. The winner will have 1 week to email me to claim their prize or I will use to pick another winner.

Hi there! I'm a new follower and I have the feeling I have already entered this blog today looking at lots of contributions to the "Anythng but a card-challenge" at Crafty Ribbons - or at least I remember I liked the blog and the blogger are from Wisconsin!

Looking forward to january when my husbands daughter will come from Chile (to Sweden) - she has not been here since she was four years old and her mother took her away from her country of birth. Now she's 18 and can decide for herself...

Awesome candy! I just love 6X6 pads and have sworn off 12X12 pads altogether. (The scale is usually too big for cards.)

Happy Day Cheryl! This is happy candy! Thanks for the opportunity to win it. I wish good luck to everyone!
1.) I look forward to today's LAST (hopefully) Worker's comp doc visit, so we can finally go to court...I got hurt on the job in April 2005, and am now disabled...this case needs to settle already!
2.) My youngest daughter is hosting TG this year for the first time, and I am very proud of her! I am very much looking forward to it!
3.) Looking forward to a sparkly and bright Holiday tree!
4.) I have just been picked for a DT for the first time and start the first Sunday in December, so I am also looking forward to that!

I hope you have lots to look forward to!

Your candy is now on my low sidebar with the rest of the candy!

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
