Where Oh Where...

AND THE WINNER IS....
Janet Z said...
Congrats on your milestone and thanks for a chance at your blog candy!
Thanks so much for playing y'all! And thank you for coming by! :) Please email your deets Janet so I can get your goodies in the mail! :)

....does the time go! I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful holiday break. It's been a fun ...and crazy.... time here. Today was the first day that I have actually sat down to stamp in what feels like forever! I look up from my desk to see my #2 son......



The giant jigsaw puzzle pieces belong to his little brother. What I have learned is that baby toys are so much more appealing when you are 6. Who knew?! Ok...how long is this break? lol! I think the boys are already going stir crazy!


...Needless to say, I haven't had a ton of blogging time this last week. Between finishing up for Christmas and keeping up with these little guys of mine, things have been quite crazy! I totally missed my blogs 150K hits! I totally cannot believe that I am there. Well, a little bit over now that I've actually noticed! How is that possible? Well, because of all of my online friends...because of all of you! Thank you so much for coming by each day and leaving me such kind comments. I cannot tell you how much it means to me!



Let's celebrate! As a thank you to each of you I am offering up some candy. This is what I have so far. If you've won from me before, you know that your package will arrive with a little extra. This time is no exception. One of my projects this week is to clean up my stamping space. Things are in total chaos! This is what I could put my hands on for the photo.....



The stamp set is from Stampin Up it's called By the Sea. The paper is Basic Grey. The ribbon is random satin. Once I come across some of the brads for this paper I will add it to the package. I know they are here somewhere!


Thank you! I really enjoy sharing with all of you! Thank you for coming by to see what's going on and for all of your kind words!


Hope you are all enjoying your break! I will post you soon! :)

***edited to add....deadline for this one will be Friday. I will announce the winner on Saturday morning. Hope you all enjoy your week. I will be back with posts throughout the week but I am scheduling them all. This promises to be an even busier week than last! :) Have a good one!

I totally hear you on the 6 year old loving the baby toys! :) My almost 6 year old has been playing with my one year old's new toys all day! I never thought baby toys would be so appealing to him. Congratulations on all your success, with your blog and all your DT positions...I love your work!

okienurse said...

It has been a hectic holiday for sure around here and I don't have small children to contend with. I spent the day straightening up my craft room after trying to find a valentines day stamp set. I empathize with you. This stamp set is not one I ran across today so I would love to add it to the collection! Happy New Year!

My 5 year old is like your son. I've tried packing up the "baby" toys, like the large Lego-type blocks, and he's almost in tears. He says "I'm still using those, Mama".

Thanks for a chance to win blog candy.

I seriously had to look at that picture for about three minutes, trying to figure out how your son got his head inside of that box. LOL! I come to your blog daily for inspiration; however, I don't show you the love like I should. I really appreciate all that you do, and I really enjoy your creations. Congrats on the hits.

Congratulations on hitting the milestone of 150,000 hits on your blog. I'm a rather new visitor. I bookmarked your site sometime in December, so I don't know how many of those 150K I helped out with! Thanks for offering the blog candy. My first grandchild will be born in April and I hope to do a scrapbook for him If I win, the boats will come in handy, I'm sure!

Love the picture of your little guy! What a cutie!!! Congrats on so many hits!! Not surprising really since your blog is fabulous and always full of lots of inspiration!!

FibreJunky said...

That's an impressive milestone! I'll be thrilled when I hit 1000. Wish I could tell you why baby toys are so much more fun when you're six, but it seems they're equally as impressive when you're 8 or 10. After that, the baby becomes more interesting than the toy - at least with my kids.

Congrats and Happy New Year!!
