Blog Candy

Ok, I know you've been waiting patiently for the blog candy to celebrate my blog reaching (and surpassing) 300,000 hits. And here it is!!! Since it's wedding months coming up I thought I'd offer up a Scrappy Cat Clear stamps set "Wedding Wishes." ($17+ value at Addicted to Rubber Stamps). This set has a wedding cake, package, bells, rings, wording and a few other themed images. Plus I'm adding 5 Studio G sets, Wedding, Friends, Thank You, Boys Sports and laugh Out Loud flower and butterfly. Lots of hours of fun there!!! I'm also including (but not pictured here) 5 yards of the 5/8" Vanilla grosgrain ribbon.

Do you need to answer a question this time??? Sure you do!!! You don't expect to get something for nothing do you??? LOL

t.allman posted a comment some time back and asked me a question I'm sure some of you may be asking yourself as well.

She was wondering if I would share with you all how I find the time to put something on my blog every day.

Here's the answers you may pick from:
a) I got some extra time as a gift and have not used it all up yet!
b) I neglect my home and family to stamp.
c) I stay up late and stamp
d) I dedicate a certain amount of time each day for stamping
e) I make a weeks worth of items in one day and post them as I need them
f) I never sleep
g) I have people help me (You know like Martha Stewart!!!)
h)

There you go! I left "h" blank in the event you don't buy into any of those you can just write your own thought in!!!

Have fun and keep it clean (especially you Peggy R!!!) LOL

Play nice!
Wanda

I'm anxious to see your answer! If it was me, I'd "B", neglect the family and home ("What? You want to eat dinner tonight?!"), "C" ("It's only 3 a.m. -- I have 3 more hours till I have to start tomorrow!") and "F" ("Well, now it's too late to go to bed anyway!!) LOL!!! I bet you do a bunch of projects in 1 day -- you seem quite organized -- not sure what "letter" that was. TFS! Jeanne

sparklystamper said...

Congratulations on such a great site and over 300,000 hits! My answer is "C" because I stay up late to stamp. And I neglect the housework to stamp. And I get up early to stamp. And..... Susan :-)

trulyblessed said...

WOW,300,000 hits...the sign of a great, creative crafter/stamper/blogger. I hafta go with a combination of all of them a-g....we do what we gotta do LOL

Carolynn W. said...

I'm going to say "D"!!
Thanks for the chance to win these great stamps! Congrats on the # of hits!

Andrea said...

hmmm. a little of b, c and e I am going for, that's how I do it anyway LOL. congratulations!!!!!

Amy said...

I love your blog and others do to so those hits don't surprise me!

I am going to guess D. :)

Jackie said...

300,000 - wow! Congrats. I am going to go with "e" as well but if the real answer is "a" please let me know who gave it to you - I could use some more myself!

Jan Scholl said...

I personally do E for myself, sometimes even making a month's worth of stuff. But I want to pick H for you-you are really an AI and have been programmed by the real one to do all the fun stuff and she gets to do the mundane stuff. I know that is backwards but she is human-she screwed up!

Lisa said...

I vote for "C".

Congrats on the hits!

Jen said...

Wow on the hits!

I think it might be that you don't sleep, but my real guess is that you make a weeks worth and then post something each day.

Kristine said...

I would go for answer b)!!
And this is a fabulous blog candy and your cards are so beautiful!

Nettie said...

I am chosen H= All of the above!

Congrats I really enjoy visiting your site on a daily basis.

Debby said...

Linda said...

I hate to admit it, but b would be my answer. My stamping room is just off the room where my husband watches TV so at least I am within talking distance.

Carol said...

I'm going with all the answers! LOL That's how a real stamper lives! We MAKE time to stamp regardless of what goes on around us, right?!?! LOL

t.allman said...

WOW, that blog counter is just climbing so fast! Congrats on reaching such a large group of friends to craft with. I think I am going with (nuts, forgot the letter LOL) but its that you never sleep! Whatever the reason...I'm glad you're able to share like you do. You inspire!
Nanc

Terry Molineux said...

Wow! That's a hard one but I think I'll go with "D". "E" sounds good too but it's already taken!! LOL

Cindy said...

Mmmmm....I have to say I would go with B, yes the answer is B. Thanks for all of the wonderful inspiration.

tinamarie said...

d) I dedicate a certain amount of time each day for stamping

This is me. I try to sit down every night and stamp after dinner. It does not always though due to DH and the kids! Or if DH is tired of doing the dishes, then I do them but it cuts into my prescious stamping time!!LOL
Yes, CONGRATS on your hits! This is such a great site and I love to get the email notices of new things on it!!!
THANK YOU!!

denise said...

I don't have a blog, but I try to do something creative each day. Even if it is for 15 minutes. I like H though because it leaves it wide open! Congratulations on your hits! Your blog is an inspiration!

Chrissy said...

Congrats on your blog! I always love seeing what you make!

My family would answer with B but MY answer is D.

Keep up the great work!

Chrissy

~Deborah~ said...

WOW! CONGRATS! QUEEN BLOGGER! LOL
IM going with: c) I stay up late and stamp
Good Luck Everyone!
~Deborah

~Lana B.~ said...

h) You are a mad genius that works at such a high rate of speed that in essence you gain several hours each day to work on various projects which may vary depending on day, date, and time.

That's my guess and I'm stickin to it! ;)
~Lana B~

Anonymous said...

Wow that's a lot of hits! I'm just startout and hope I can do as well. I would have to say "A" or if I add my own "H" would be "I force myself to do it!"
Mary P.

Denise... said...

Jennifer (jennifer-g on SCS) said...

Wow, congrats on all the hits! I check your blog every day. :-) I am going to guess that you:

c) stay up late and stamp

Since that is what I do, LOL!

mudmaven said...

Congrats on a great blog! I think I'll have to opt for "h" and say that I still haven't figured it out yet and am hoping to get some answers from everyone else! Thanks ~chris

kat said...

WOW! But I'm not surprised at the number of hits you get; you have fantastic ideas and you're a pleasure to 'visit'.

I say the answer is "D"......

Darlene said...

Hi. Love your blog. You have great cards posted with the sets I have and I like that. My guess is well H: my alter ego does all the work. LOL. Have a great week and thanks for the wonderful blog candy offer. Darlene

Sandy said...

lol so are we guessing YOUR answer? or answering for ourselves? :)
For you I'll guess A, for me its definitely D--if I don't make something I get verrrry cranky!

Kathy H said...

D. you have a certain amount of time a day you stamp, Thanks for letting me play, Kathy H...

scfranson said...

Pat S. said...

Hello, my twisted friend!

I think you have those cats helping you out...they have to earn their keep...especially that one that just comes over to eat & sleep :)

JenniferL. said...

Oh I definitely neglect things that need to be done around the house to stamp and blog. I usually stamp several cards or projects on the weekend and then I have something to show most everyday. The actual upload to the blog for me doesn't take more than 5-10 minutes it is the stamping part so that I have something to show that I have the trouble with.

Brenda said...

Well, I don't have a blog, but I'd have to pick "C"...I do stay up late to do most of my stamping!
Congrats on all the hits...great blog! I really love the card you posted on Friday...too cute! I may just have to get that set now! Thanks for this chance to win!
~Brenda H.

Laurie said...

Hmmmm, if you're like Martha then it's D, E oR G. If you're normal (giggle) then it's B, C or F.

Mucho congrats on your hitcount - and thanks for such a fun blog!

Dorothy said...

Hey Wanda - I'm gonna guess D! Thanks for the chance to win the great blog candy! Keep those great cards coming.....
Dorothy

Marge Sexton said...

I was going to say C or D....but then again it could be E...hmmm...anxious to hear your answer. Congrats....Love your work! Thanks for the inspiration!

Anonymous said...

I will guess C. Although I do not blog (yet!) I often stay up stamping and such and often lose track of the time. Speaking of which, hubby just asked when I was coming to bed...hmmmm

By the way, congrats on surpassing 300,000 hits!

Sara said...

Congratulations. I'm guessing and hoping, for your familys sake, the answer is d. Thanks for the chance to win.
Sara

charlene.herter said...

I am going to say C because that seems like what you would do. You wouldn't take time away from your family but you might stay up late after everyone goes to sleep. Thanks for the opportunity and congrats on the blog!

Just Peggy said...

Well, now you've challenged me. I say you stay up late with tassels on! So there, nanny nanny boo boo! Thanks for the chance to win great candy, Wanda, and for the wonderful, inspiring, and creative blog.

Barbara said...

First thank you for all you do. You have a wonderful site. I would say a little bit of everything. But I also vote for h. You do it because you can!!!

Diane said...

I love your blog and thanks for the
chance to win this wonderful prize!
Wow,lots of goodies here!
I'm going to say D,I figure you post everyday,so you must take time everyday for stamping too!!!

Pat said...

Hmmm...Maybe a little of all depending on the day. That's a lotta stamps. Congrats and thanks for sharing!

Mary Campbell said...

I am going for the last one. you know, Fill in the blank. And the answer would be "a combination of all of the above". That's the way I do it. Thanks for the chance to win some great blog candy. Mary

Ettiene said...

I am going to go with e. Although for h i would write - I do it at work when I am supossed to be doing work.

Neva said...

Congrats on that whopping number of hits. I am new to blogging so it will take me years to get there.
My answer to your question is:
d) I dedicate a certain amount of time each day for stamping

I am an early riser and tend to do my best thinking early in the morning so I LOVE to go upstairs and make my creation using the challenges from SCS then loading to my gallery and hop right over to my blog. All of this before going to work. I get so out of wak when I have to be at work too early to stamp. It disrupts my entire day.

Anonymous said...

a) I got some extra time as a gift and have not used it all up yet!

that would be my answer. I think time truly is a gift and lately I have an overabundance of it for some reason or another. Yeah there's stuff I should do, but nothing that has to be done at this instant.
Great candy by the way thanks for a chance to win it.

Linda SS said...

H - All of the above!

You are so funny...I don't have a clue how you do it, Wanda. I'm tired just trying to figure out how you do it all:)

Shaz said...

What a fantastic number of hits and a great blog candy you have on offer.

I would say that d) I dedicate a certain amount of time each day for stamping sounds like a good option. Even if one doesn't actually get to stamp a card every day one can still be thinking about a new card to create, a stamp set to use etc.... If you are thinking about what to blog about during the day it often doesn't take long to create a blog post. When you sit down to blog and your mind goes blank is when it becomes something of a chore and not likely to happen.

Keep up the great posts. Always great to check in to see what you are up to and your latest creations.

Anonymous said...

I would likely have to say a bit of all but most of all because of your love for the craft.

Erika M. said...

I think D - You dedicate a certain amount of time for stamping - I love all the additional comments some of them are quite funny.

merri

Amy said...

Thats a hard question!! Myself it would be C - I stay up late. But I'm debating between D - you dedicate the evening to C - stay up late and then E - you make a weeks worth of items and since you stayed up late it would be F - never sleep however, it could be H - since you are so talented and your blessed with that gift you just make time!!!!

Anonymous said...

I would say B. That is what I do. LOL!

JIB said...

Well I'd have to say C & D. I myself never sleep (insomnia) so I don't put that time to waste.

Congrats!!

Debbie said...

I think it is simply for the love of it...I know that is why I scrap, stamp and create.

Congrats on your 300,000, that is awesome. Keep up the good work!

Anonymous said...

Definitely must be all of the above...and then some!

Thanks and congratulations!

Antoinette said...

You seem like a late nighter... I'm going with "C".
Obviously with the number of hits on your blog, we all appreciate you finding time to blog. :-)

I am not sure if this is over with but if I was guessing I would say D, as everyone needs a little time to themselves everyday.
