It's Blog Candy Time

I began this blog this day in 2006!  That sounds SO long ago now.  I have been posting every day since then.  Though I think I may have missed a day once a year but for the most part I post every day and I still love it.

So to celebrate my 5 years of blogging I am giving this stamp set to the winner of the drawing.  

To have a chance at winning this you will need to leave a comment to this post.  In your comment, tell me what keeps you motivated to stamp?  I will draw a name on Thursday November 10th.

Thank You SO much for being faithful followers of my blog.  I have enjoyed posting to it and will continue for some time to come!

Please comment to this post only and it is open to USA and Canadian residents only.

Good luck to you all, 
Wanda

First, oodles of congrats on 5 years of blogging!! We ALL thank you for sharing with us when WE need the motivation. I know for me, when I see a card that just wows me for it's color palette or simplicity or sometimes, the various layers and textures, I think, ok, I can give it a try or tweak it a bit to make it my own--your blog and others are the key to that motivation. Sharing a hobby we all love and enjoy,is sometimes only achieved in the cyber world and how grand that is!
Stay well,
AnnMarie

Congrats on 5 years, Wanda! That is A LOT of dedication on your part and I'm very thankful for that. Being part of a secret stamper's group has kept me motivated. I don't want my "partner" be disappointed that she's not receiving a little happy mail from me on a continuous basis.
Thanks again for sharing your creativity with us every day.

I love creating cards because it keeps my 'old' mind active trying to find a new idea or using the wonderful ones I find on Wanda's blog. I have a wonderful stash of things to create with so no need to go out and buy more or a card. The end result is what makes me smile the most.........to think that I could do it.

Congratulations - and thank you for all your wonderful inspiration. What keeps me motivated is the need for peace and quiet and easy to use materials. No noisy tools are involved in stamping which is a big plus as well as supplies that are easily accessible. Also, the amount of sharing that is done between papercrafters is a constant flow of ideas.

Congratulations Wanda! I do enjoy visiting here every day. I especially enjoy your posts every Thursday after the sketch challenge is posted. I love seeing what you come up with each week. What motivates me is your consistancy. I often tell myself "if Wanda can post a card or project every single day - I could at least make one project this week". You provide lots of inspiration with your projects as well. Thanks for doing this!!!

Congratulations on your 5 year anniversary!

I almost lost my motivation to stamp when one lady who really loved getting my cards passed away this summer. Then I realized others do like getting my cards too, so I had to push myself to get going on some cards. Just in time for Christmas too!

Devina said...

I love giving home crafted gifts and having a hand crafted card to go with just seemed like I was taking my gift up a notch.

Shauna said...

Congratulations on 5 years! Following blogs like yours and needing a form of *relaxation* is my inspiration to continue stamping! Thanks for the opportunitu to win!

Motivated by the pleasure I get in putting together something that is as much as possible personalized for the recipient (and, of course, it's always nice to get a warm response!). Inspired by the creativity of blogs such as yours. Hope these have been five wonderful years for you and wishing you many fives more.

Athena said...

5 years! That's a lot of blogging! Congratulations. What keeps me stamping - I have all these ideas that swim around in my head and every now and then I have to give in and let them out. There are so many fun and intriguing stamps out there that it's hard NOT to create! Your inspiration doesn't hurt either! Thanks Wanda!

Congratulations on your 5 years of blogging, Wanda. A great deal of my motivation comes from your blog. I visit it every day. I have some of the SU stamps that you use and I get excited to use them.

We are having a boutique/bake sale in our apartment building this weekend and I am selling cards - so I have had to push myself some days to get more cards made. I will probably have around 150-175 cards to sell..that has been my second motivation, at this time!

May you have many more fun years of blogging. I will do my best to keep up with you! :)

Congratulations on 5 years! Thanks for the inspiration. I think what keeps me stamping is thinking about the recipients of my cards and hoping I can bring joy to their day.

Congrats on your five years of blogging. You are one of my favorite blogs and I love that you are a daily blooger!! I find myself motivated by need for cards and love of giving little 3D treats. I am inspired by blogs; I wouldn't be very creative without them. Thanks for all you share with us.

Congrats on 5 years with your blog. I don't remember how I came across your site, but I have enjoyed all of the things you do. You have taught me a lot about stamping. Keep up the good work.

Jilly said...

Hope I'm not too late to add my comment to the drawing ... hubby's surgery has me behind in lots of stuff. Love your blog ... it gives me inspiration and ideas. Most of my motivation comes from things I see on blogs ... I add my own twist, of course! Congrats on the anniversary.

Kim160 said...

Congrats on your 5 years....how time flies. What really keeps me motivated is all the new things that come out each year and people like you who give me the inspiration I need to use the new items. Thanks for the chance and have a great day.

Stamping keeps me sane! I've been stamping for 14 years now and still just love the hobby....creating something someone appreciates is the best feeling ever.

Noreen said...

Congratulations. Has it been 5 years already. I love your work, especially the 'projects'. I'm motivated by people like you. It's also therapy. There's something about coloring, cutting & stamping. Keeps me sane. I look forward to more of your projects.
