A Little Housekeeping & a Giveaway

Saturday, June 15, 2013

Happy Saturday, folks!  We'll be on our way to my sister's, for my niece's birthday party, in just a bit; but before that, I wanted to stop in here to say hi and give you all first dibs on a bunch of Stampin' Up stamp sets I've pulled for our yard sale in a couple of weeks.  They've been added to my For Sale page at 70% or more off their original prices.  So, be sure to stop by and check that out.

Some of you may have noticed that this month's Daily Dozen, as inspired by Elizabeth Kartchner, was lacking from my blog.  Well, you see, Lizzy has her hands super busy with her brand new, beautiful, baby Myles, too busy to be sending out reminders to all of us followers; and well, I'm super forgetful, and it completely slipped my mind with everything else that's been going on this summer.  Actually, I'm not sure how I've remembered to do it for the last five months.  I've also been stumped as to how to capture these memories on paper.  A 12" x 12" layout simply isn't big enough.  I've thought about doing a mini album for each month and collecting the year's worth of minis in a pretty box of some sort, but with all the other pictures that this picture-happy Mom takes, it just seems so overwhelming.  So, for now, I've put my Daily Dozen on hold.  I hope you can understand. 

I also wanted to remind you all that the challenges for our Let's Get Trendy Now! 3 workshop run throughout the course of the month of June with individual prizes for each trend and one grand prize for a player who has joined us for all FIVE trends.  Participant entries are currently being featured on the Let's Get Trendy Now! 3 Facebook Fan Page, and winners will be announced, both there and on the Let's Get Trendy Now! 3 Blog, on July 10, 2013.
Finally, my little blog has officially reached 300 followers.  Woohoo!  So, I'm thinking that it's about time for another giveaway.  Here's what's up for grabs.
That's (1) 3 Bugs in a Rug Deck the Halls Papercrafting Kit; (2) two each of Wplus9 Design's 8-1/2" x 11" Cranberry Crush, Sweet Gelato, Ballet Slippers, and Green Acres cardstock; (3) Hambly woodgrain screen print; (4) My Little Shoebox Sunday Market journaling die cuts; (5) Fancy Pants Designs Glitter Cuts; (6) Dear Lizzy black, puffy Thickers; (7) Brenda Walton's upper and lowercase, glitter alphas; (8) Hambly Family Portrait Antique Pink rub-ons...

(15) Market Street Stamps Vintage Notepad background stamp; (16) Market Street Stamps Here Comes the Sun background stamp; (17) Market Street Stamps Faithful Phrases 01 stamp set; (18) Maya Road Houndstooth Singleton Stamp...

To enter for your chance to win, simply leave me a comment below telling me your all-time favorite stamp set at the moment.  I'll leave the giveaway open for two weeks and announce a winner on Saturday, June 29, 2013.  Good luck, y'all!  I'll be back, late tomorrow, with the first of five days of June release treats from The Craft's Meow.  Until then, be blessed, and stay cool!  Hugs!

Congrats on 300. My favorite stamp set is always the one I'm stamping with at the moment. Lately, though, my favorite is Fabulous Florets by Stampin' Up!. It has a leafy stem that I love to stamp around the edges of a card and fill in the center with floral stamps.
