Blog Candy!

Can you believe it?  I missed my Blogoversary!  It was almost a week ago.  I was so busy with the craft fair stuff and getting caught up from the craft fair stuff that I completely forgot about my Blogoversary.  I started this blog back in 2006.  Back when there weren't a lot of stamping blogs out there.  Now there's tons of them for you to enjoy!  I have had a lot of fun posting to my blog and I plan to continue, as long as I have viewers!!!  I have noticed how the trend is changing and I too, have changed along with it. I use to use Google Reader and now I hardly look at it.  It has been replaced by Pinterest (one of my favorite places to spend a TON of time).  Though I don't often use Pinterest to search for card samples.  I still prefer Split Coast Stampers.  It's much more organized and easier to find what you are looking for.  With Pinterest you need to know exact wording and sometimes that doesn't always help.  But I will continue to post on here so you will always know where to find me!!

So onto the blog candy.  I have 3 different "Scrappy Cat" brand of clear rubber stamps.  All three come with images and sentiments.  The names of the sets are "Thank You", "Sunny Days", and "To Cheer You".  And as you know I always add to the package as the days count down, so the lucky winner receives a lot more than is in the photo.  

Nothing is free!!!  You need to answer a question to be entered in the drawing.  Ok, the question is:  "What is your favorite internet source of creative information/inspiration?"  Now you want to know when!  I will draw a name on Sunday November 18th.  I was going to move the date closer but I have a busy week and weekend.  My niece is getting married next month and her bridal shower happens to be on Saturday.  I am her godmother so I am hosting the shower which means I have LOTS of stuff to do.  Plus I am not done with the jewelry for the wedding party gals.  I am hoping to finish that up later tonight!  Gosh, when did life get so busy?  And especially at this time of the year too when it's normally extra busy because of the holidays.  UGH!!!  I'm SO looking forward to the end of the month when I can step back and take a short breather before the next wave of holiday stuff hits!  Then after the first of the year things will calm down a lot and I'm hoping to get a lot of beading done along with my other "usual" stuff!

So, please leave a comment to this post only for your chance to win the blog candy.  And please only enter once.  I also ask that it be limited to USA and Canadian residents only.  Thank you.

I thank you for visiting my blog and good luck!

I too love to use split coast stampers for inspiration. There are so many blogs that I often start blog hopping and then never actually get to make anything!

I do appreciate your blog as our style are similar. You have given me a lot of inspiration of the years.

happy blogoversary. i hope you have many more. i haven't been bitten by the pintrest bug yet. i don't seem to navigate splitcoast too well either , so most of my inspiration comes from different blogs. i love blagg hops. i have quite a few that i visit daily. if i have too many i go into sensory overload. i put the ideas i lkie into a group and peruse them when i have time or a specific look. thanks so much for offering blog candy. good luck all.

i have to agree i love pinterest...before pinterest, it was free digital stamps, because it brings you to so many creative people sites.....

thanks for posting/blogging

I agree with you. Pinterest isn't as organized. I love split coast stampers. To get inspiration at times, I pick a stamp set and search via that route. Thanks, Becky

I am always inspired by the stamping blogs I follow. There are so many great ideas, and the 5 of you whose blogs I read have such different ideas that I can always find an idea, color scheme, or even just the sentiments!!

Thanks so much for a great blog and the chance to win great prizes!!

Happy Blogoversary! Definitely Splitcoast Stampers for paper crafting inspiration but I love Pinterest for all other inspiration. I can spend hours and hours at either site! Happy Stampin'!

I still like my Google Reader for marking things I want to do later. But, I find the way I search for inspiration is just by googling the name of the stamp set and clicking on "images" instead of "web" search. This has more to do with my age than anything - the pictures are bigger on my computer!!! I love searching SCS but the pictures are way smaller.

Is that bad or what!

As usual I love stopping by here each and every day!

Pinterest, You tube tutorials, your blog and My Pink Stamper all give me great ideas . Oh to be so creative !!!

Julie said...

I subscribe to blogs (yours is one)and I like looking at Splitcost Stampers.

Laura B said...

I use your blog as well as a few others, pinterest, splitcoaststampers and sometimes just google and see what comes up.

Peggy S from OH said...

i would have to say blogs, althought I do check out splitcoaststampers, but not as often.

Happy Blogoversary, Wanda!

Jilly said...

I get my ideas mostly from blogs but I've been known to copy a tissue box and even an Arby's cup! I see potential cards in almost everything I look at. If I never look at another blog, magazine, or web search, I have enough ideas already tucked away to last me a lifetime! Love your stuff, Wanda ... keep up the great work.
