Blog 2nd Anniversary Blog Candy!!!


LOL! I'm posting this blog candy on all of my blogs. Only one entry will apply. . .you may choose any of my blog to comment but only one entry will apply for all blogs.

Hey Everyone!!! Friday, December 5th is my Blog 2nd Anniversary! I was going to wait until the 5th to announce the blog candy but I want to get the package out before the Christmas rush kicks in. The blog candy will run from from December 3rd (today) and will end on Wednesday, December 10th, 12:00 midnight PST. The blog candy is open to US and Canadian residents only. I'm sorry for the International readers, I hate doing customs at the post-office. It's painful!

It's been such a wonderful 2 years of crafting and blogging and especially meeting such wonderful people who I would never have met if it wasn't for this fabulous world of blogging. Thank you for inspiring me, entertaining me, and just being kind and encouraging. I, especially, appreciate my regular blog readers who always comment with such kind words. . .you brighten my day when ever I receive your comments or emails!!

Whenever I visit a blog, I ALWAYS read what the blogger writes. That is one reason why I take a long time to make my rounds as far as commenting your blogs. I actually read what you write and I like to comment on what your talk about. I not only enjoy the beautiful work that you post on your blogs, but I especially enjoy reading what you have to say.

  • So here's the deal. . .one entry per person.
    Comment on this post by linking a blog that you regularly like to READ. . .not because of their beautiful art work but because you like what they write aside from the subject of card making, scrapbooking, or any art work. Tell me why you like to read this person's blog. The blog don't have to be stamping, cardmaking, scrapbooking related. . .any blog applies. I will, in time, follow those links and read them myself as well.
  • Please leave a comment on this blog. . .do not email me because I cannot keep track of my emails! LOL!!
  • Everyday until the blog candy ends next Wednesday. . .I'll add a new item in addition to what is pictured and listed below. This is just the start of the prizes!! Whoohoo!!
  • Link this blog candy on your blog and you'll receive an extra entry. Please let me know on your comment that you'll be linking this blog candy on your blog. Thanks!!
One winner will be RANDOMLY chosen and announced on Thursday, December 11th. If the winner do not respond within 48 hours, I will choose a new winner because I want to get the package mailed out as soon as possible.

Here is the list of items so far:

1. Marcella by K&CO rubber stamp set (Happy Occasion)
2. High Hopes rubber stamp (Birdies Fried - Snowlady)

Bona said...

Wow! Yummy blog candy Maria! There's so many blogs I enjoy reading, but I would have to say my favorite is Jackielou at http://nursejae.blogspot.com/. Everytime I read her blog, she always makes me laugh. Her work is amazing, but to be able to admire her work and have a good time makes it that much greater. There hasn't been one post of hers that I didn't end up without tears running down my eyes from laughing. She's so sweet and awesome.

Sharon Caudle said...

Wow! Really yummy blog candy Maria! Thanks for stopping by my blog today and for your sweet comments! And I LOVE the fact that you take the time to read the blogs. I do the same thing. It's really so rewarding! One blog that I really enjoy visiting, not only for the beautiful work she does, but just to read about her adventures, is Dawny. Here's the link for her blog: http://pinkpiggywiggy.blogspot.com/

thanks for the fun Maria!

JackieLou said...

You both give me so much inspirations to keep creating projects... You guys are so talented and are full of super funny stories of daily living... hahahaha

Jackielou

Lisa Lou said...

I love to read Jen's site (www.expressivelyme.blogspot.com) I find her funny and amazing with all she has to do and still gets done. I also love Kennedy & Friends (kennedyandfriends.typepad.com). She reminds me of myself, she has a little girl just a little older then my own, she's into the same things as me, and she always e-mails me back when I comment. Both sites inspire me as well.

I linked! Thanks Maria!

Liane said...

I love reading lots of blogs. I enjoy lauralooloo.blogspot.com for her artwork!

Marie said...

Oh wow... Choosing one blog is hard. But, I will have to say Kiyomi Krafts is a blog that I read on a regular basis. Not only is her blog informative, beautiful but also inspiring. I appreciate the effort that she takes to make her tutorials easy to understand. I read all blogs equally, in regards to the text, image and video.

Becky said...

Sassy & sweet http://sweetmissdaisy.typepad. love seeing her pictures of her chickens and hearing her stories of them. She is also does the sweetest cards and is a wonderful illistrator.

OK I will try it again. The way I worded my last one looked like I was drunk. I promise I am not. I love your blog. Another one I love to read is www.dooce.com
She takes normal everyday life and makes it hilarious. I love her dog, Chuck. She probably is my long lost sister because of her humor. Congratulations on your anniversary. I don't usually post but felt I needed to today.

Joani said...

Congrats Maria!
Besides yours, I like to read Mel Stampz. I don't know how she does it but she's always loaded with hints & tips and blog info.
Hugs,

I like it because she posts a little of everything, recipes, cards, projects! You never know what she might post! It's great!
Thanks for your generosity in giving away such an awesome prize package! Sure looks like Christmas may come early for some lucky person!

Jacqueline Frisbie said...

Hello Maria,
I have only 3 blogs that I read and I believe if I have to choose one I enjoy the most, it will have to be yours because you share about your family, about everyday life when you're not feeling well, about you new scrapbooking and card making area; just everyday life happenings and we all can relate and it helps each one of us.
So, thank you.

elaine said...

Great blog candy, Maria! Sure would find a use for this! And I can't believe you'll be adding more each day - WOW! My favorite blog to read for info would have to be Nicole Heady. She shares info from so many subjects - family, friends, past experiences, present events, co-workers, etc. Here's her link: http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/
Will be watching your blog now, too!

Rita said...

Wow, way to go girl with the blog candy! I luv to read Lauren Meader's blog because she has such great things to say & writes them well & she is such a talended woman. I luv how her mind works & how she sees something & can transfer that thought into a card, she's amazing & interesting! Here's her link:

http://laurenm.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/

I will put a link to your candy on my blog when I post later today.

Collette said...

There are so many out there and more each day. I have a few bookmarked and on my blog, but lately, I've been "looking up" the information at:
http://www.tayloredexpressions.blogspot.com/
Jennifer has lots of ideas and "talks" in an easy manner, it's almost like you're there talking to her. But again, I hate to single just one website out there when thre are so VERY many of them.
I'm going to put your blog address on my blog today.
Thanks again~

Congrat on your blog-anniversary. I enjoy reading Marie's blog because it is a way to stay in touch. Marie is married to an Air Force pilot and used to live in Del Rio and was my SU Demonstrator. And as the AF does, after a few years they moved on to a new base. Her kids are so cute, especially the youngest with whom she was pregnant with while stationed here. He is so cute and I have a soft spot for him in my heart ... and by reading her blog I can continue to see her kids grow. Here's her link: http://bootstostamps.typepad.com/

Lovely blog candy...

I find it calming and refreshing to read Sarah's journal on http://www.asliliessewing.blogspot.com (click on "About me" and then click the link "journal" on the left): Two positive thinking young ladies describing aspects of their farming life in Missouri. They are not doing much cardmaking or scrapbooking but are very crafty in other ways.

I have the longest list of blogs and it takes me a few hours per day to read them all. Thank goodness for nap time! My favorite is Unity Stamps http://theunitystampco.blogspot.com/
because I look forward to what Angela has to offer each week and of course the Hip Hop every Thursdays.
Thanks for the chance, I posted a link on my blog today :)

Thank you for this wonderful chance to win this blog candy. Congrats on your anniversary! I discovered this blog world a couple of weeks ago and my favorite one is Jenn's..kiyomikrafts.com I find hers really inspirational and funny.What I also liked was when she was sick and her husband posted a message with a very artistic photo.
