Giveaways and a share…

Hey, everyone.

I have a share and some giveaways.

First, the share.  I did a ton of these with scraps this weekend at the retreat.  I just like to have little things like this on-hand to throw in packages I send out.  (The post office man knows me well.  :)   I just colored them with pencils and then used a clear glitter pen over them for a bit of shine. 

092508 BIrds
Hero Arts stamps (birds and greeting)
Hero Arts tiny clear gems, colored black with a permanent pen for eyes
Copic Glitter Pen
Creative Impressions Silk Ribbon
Black Memories Ink
Colored Pencils and Gamsol
Paper Shaper Punches

Now… for the fun part!  April over at Studio Calico generously sent me some extra stamps to giveaway.  They are so kind over there – I highly recommend you check them out.  The sneak peek of their October kit has me drooling.  I will be getting it for sure.  And the guest designer is none other than one of my favorites – Leslie Lightfoot.  Woohoo!

So, I have these three clear stamps.  I will pick three winners – each will get one stamp.  (Gotta spread the love around a bit.)  Just leave a comment here by tomorrow (Friday the 26th) at 11:59pmEDT.  In your comment, tell me something good that happened to you today.


Thanks again to Studio Calico.

Oh, and the good thing that happened to me today: I taught a class at my local store.  I just love doing that.


(BTW: Thanks for the House link.  You all rock.  Lipstick Jungle caught me off guard, too!  Just as long as they keep good ol' Kirby around, I will be happy.  :)

ETA: Did you all see this good news?  Jason is the next Bachelor!  Simple pleasures. Hee.

    I love your site – happened upon in a few weeks and am addicted – I also live in Cincinnati!

    Best thing that happened to me today – had the day off and got to spend one on one time with my second grader – I have four boys so getting time with just one doing something of their choice is a treat!

    Hmmm, each day really is full of blessings, but today we stopped at a little farm stand, and the nice man there gave each of my girls a little decorative pumpkin. I thought that was sweet, and my girls love them!

  3. Kirby is the bomb!!! hehe. I was able to make my good friend smile today and that was the best thing to happen to me all week (it was a really bad week).

    Hi Jennifer, I’m new to your site and love it! The best thing that happened to me today is that my 2 kids (ages 4 and 7months) took a 3 hour nap, and I got to take a 2 hour nap! :)

    Today is my hubby’s b-day. He took the day off and the kids were off school. We spent the day together, went to the Westside Market in Cleveland and bought a bunch of great stuff. Had a yummy dinner and I made him his favorite cake (chocolate with panuche frosting). The weather was perfect and I took a bunch of cute pictures. Would love to win one of the stamps!

  12. Roberta

    Something good (actually great) was that I went to a childrens consignment sale today and got amazing bargains on clothes and baby items for my baby boy. And I had lunch with my bff! The stamps are great. I would love to win one!

    I had the best thing happen to me yesterday……I finally got electricity after being in the dark for 13 days!!!! Don’t know when I’ll get to scrap again since my crafting area had some water damage. But I’m hoping that everyone else in my neck of the woods gets electricity very soon!!!

  30. Sarah

    ooh- LOVE the stamps. SO cute- esp. the “wicker” one…instant ideas!

    A good thing that happened to me today. Someone (a stranger)asked my kids how they were liking school and their teacher and they were both enthusiastic in their response- and said “Our mom teaches us–and she’s the BEST teacher!” ;) We homeschool and I’m new at it- so it was a tremendous blessing of reassurance. It made my day!

    I left the house at 6.30 am this morning to get a free breakfast and participate in a competition on local radio. No I didn’t win, but the children got wash, dressed and breakfasted without me. Unfortunately DD had left her school shoes in my car, but DS (12) wrote her a letter to give to the teacher. Lucky girl I spotted the shoes and got them to school just before the bell.

  32. Cute tags, Jennifer! I should make some in advance as well so I always have them on hand.

    Something good that happened to me today was that I got to spend the entire day shopping with my mom! We had a great time :)

  33. Donna Hooper

    I spent the day making cards with 25 other like minded ladies – how cool is that


  34. peg

    I had someone tell me I was wonderful! Sure made my day.
