Ok and now what you're really here for... the blog candy! Yummy!! I have a couple extra MFT sets to offload, plus a few of *my* favorite things... some pearls, dew drops, some swarovski crystals and a little assortment of safety pins and straight pins (I've been collecting them...!) Oh and of course my favorite thing of all - some Stickles!! I somehow ended up with two things of copper Stickles, don't ask me how! And for kicks I threw in a few little SU stamps and an edge distresser. To win this candy, I'd like you to do one of two things (or both!) - I wanted to come up with a cute name for my blog candy that fits my addiction theme, but I am drawing a blank. Can you help me come up with something???? Or, tell me what you're most addicted to in the stamp room. Honestly I'm not sure what my biggest addiction is - I love so many things - glitter, ribbon, brads... the list goes on and on. I'm a true addict! :-)
I really can't believe it's been over a year since I started this blog!! I totally did it on a whim one night. I had really just discovered exactly how wonderful Splitcoast was (even though I've been a "user" since 2005... I was slow to actually realize what an amazing resource and community it is!) And then I discovered that people actually have stamping blogs!! I didn't even know what a blog was at that point (yes I am even slower than you thought...!). But after looking at them for a bit, I went for it, thinking it was cheap entertainment and the only ones who would ever look at it were my sister and maybe a couple friends. Boy was I shocked, and nearly peed my pants, when the two comments I got on my very first post ever were from two Stamping Legends (hee hee), Beate and Debbie!!! OMG! My hubby had no clue why I was bouncing off the walls, but I totally was. Since then I've met so many other wonderful people through blogging - I am SO GLAD I started this little blog totally on an impulse!!
Ok in closing I have to share one other photo - if you've been following along you know I've been working like a mad woman to get our house ready to sell. Well it's going on the market tomorrow afternoon!! Eeek! Wish us luck. The photographer came yesterday to take photos for our virtual tour, and I need to share the one of my stamp room. It looks soooo pretty and neat and clean. This is a rare occurrence, I am typically a Stamping Slob. You know, a messy desk is the sign of a creative mind... or something like that...! Anyway I'm glad there's photographic proof that it once looked like this... Mind you, part of why it's so neat and clean is because half of my stuff (and nearly all my stamps!!) are boxed up and being stored at my sister's...!
Ok this is a record-long post, so I'll stop boring you now (WAKE UP!!). Leave a comment for the candy by Sunday at 9pm CST - I'll draw a winner then. Thanks for stopping by!!
