Just wanted to give you a heads up that today I am a guest over on the blog of my dear friend Kristina Werner. She is one of my favoritest (yes – I made up a word in her honor) people in the whole world… so I am honored to be there.
I will be back in the swing of things on my blog soon. Just got back from a family trip to Disney. I have been to Disney many times in my life, but this trip was the most magical yet. Lila is the first of my kids to really get into the characters and magic of being there. I will never forget her eyes when she saw the castle light up for the first time or the sound of her voice when she said, “Mom! It’s magic!” So amazing.
So, again, I will be back to normal posts (and hopefully email) soon.
Just saw these fun things that I thought you might like:
Hello! Just popping in to share a few more things that may be of interest to you.
HELP KIDS WITH DIABETES
My dear friend, Kristina, is working with her daughter to raise money to make kids with diabetes smile. Juvenile diabetes is such a terrible disease (my brother has it, as does Kristina’s young daughter), so I am big on supporting this effort. By donating money, you are eligible for some *HUGE* and awesome crafty prizes, including prizes from Online Card Classes and Simon Says Stamp. Check it out HERE.
NEW CLEARLY BESOTTED & PAPER SMOOCHES
I’ll be honest – I am really struggling lately to find time to be crafty. I am just going through a time where my friends and family need me more than my stamps do. (Although I honestly feel I need my stamps right now!) But these new Clearly Besotted products are on the top of my list to play with.
Yep! I am hoping to bring My Favorite Crafty Things to you again this year. (I have been getting a lot of emails!) Please know that my blog comes second to my family and friends… but I am hoping to bring this series to you soon. Yay! Stay tuned.
Did you know that Simon Says Stamp now sponsors a Flickr group? It’s a wonderful place where you can add your cards or projects using Simon’s very own exclusive brand of stamps, dies and stencils. In their discussion area, you’ll find challenges which are posted every other Friday. Click HERE for a link to the newest one.
There are prizes given away for each of the challenges too. (Some of which have been a $50.00 gift card to their on-line store!) It’s easy to join Flickr and once you’ve created an account, just join the Simon Says Stamp group and you’ll be all set to play in their challenges. You can find more info HERE and HERE. (Oh – and they didn’t ask me to post this. I was just impressed when I went to check it out!)
