Wow 5000 hits and some Blog Candy!

When I first starting blogging it was more to show my family what I do every day....LOL
My Mom lives in Ontario and she sees things I do, well when I send things to her! This way she can go online now and check out what her daughter is up to.
I wanted to do something for 5000 hits so I dug through my stash and found some of these goodies! Hope someone will be able to use them. It's been a lot of fun blogging and getting to know so many of you. Thanks to all of you who do visit on a regular basis. Your comments mean a lot to me!
Now onto the candy part....
I am a HUGE sports fan. So watching NHL and Nascar are what I do besides crafting. Although I craft WHILE watching sports...LOL
Please leave me a comment and let me know what other hobbies you may have besides paper crafting.

I will do a random draw for this on Sunday morning BEFORE the Nascar race starts. So about 11 AM Mountain time. Be sure to check back that afternoon for a winner to be announced! If it is you, then I will need you to email me your snail mail address so I can ship these goodies to you!
Included in the goodies:
Simply Scrappin' At Home Kit
10 chipboard coasters
36"of each...choc and white grosgrain ribbon
Decorative Flower Brads
Flowers Accents

Hmm... what do I love to do? I love to go to bed early, snuggle in with a good book!! But with 4 kids, one of them being only 3 months old, that hasn't happened for a long time! LOL!! I do love to watch the Amazing Race, or hang out with my Dh/kids and watch a good movie!

I love to play computer games. The point and click adventure kind. I like to go out to cafes too when I am well enough. And I do other crafts besides paper crafting. I love making jewellery and I am learning how to knit/crochet. I am also a movie buff so watching films are high on my list.

I love sport too. I watch European fotball often. The qualifications for the European Campionship are starting up again in September. Can't wait! Have fun watching NASCAR!

I love to garden (it's what I did all day...my muscles will be screaming in the morning), go for walks and play Scrabble. Come winter, I will be watching Flames games and mocking you...ha!

Dawn Easton said...

ROFL Allison!

jodene said...

Great giveaway. I love to cross-stich, paint and gardening. Oh and I am totally addicted to reality TV.

rebecca said...

I'm a sports fan, too, but also like to travel, read, garden, watch movies, go hiking, volunteer, visit family and friends. I'm easily smitten with whatever new thing I've never tried comes along, so have lots of things going on at once. You have a great blog and wonderful ideas. It's fun to play along, too.

I read, watch movies, eat out with friends, watch the Lakers...

Michelle in Boise said...

How come I don't see these people posting all the time? They just want the free "blog candy", eh?

I wouldn't know what to do with that prize, so I'll just keep my hobbies secret - heh.

Kathy W said...

I am an avid contra dancer and try and dance every Saturday night. I also love reading and bowling. Thanks for the chance at blog candy, and congrats on your blog hits!

Linda SS said...

Congrats on all those hits. I can see why & I've added you to my favorites. I have been looking through your cards and I truly love all of them! The ones with your Zoofari & Wild about you sets are my favorites, and that cute snowman with the glitter ice on his nose:) Besides making cards, I love to go to plays & theatre performances, travel, spoil my 3 little grandchildren, and strive to be the kind of person that God created me to be.

Cathy said...

Sweet yummy blog candy! I like to play games and watch crafts shows.
Thanks for a chance.

Hmmmm ... I love reading, watching TV, playing computer games!! And I'm sport fan too, specially Vollyball! Every friday i go to park with my friends to play vollyball.
Thanks for offering the blog candy.

Angel Wilde said...

Oh, oh... I want that kit. Besides stamping, I bead. I like to read, but tend to get totally engrossed in a book (to the exclusion if life) so I don't do that too often. I watch Nascar with hubby sometimes too. And then there's this silly computer. :-)

Dawn Griffith said...

Most of the time, when I'm not stamping, I'm doing "research" on the computer :)

Heidi said...

I am new to the blog world but absoultely can't wait to check yours every morning. Your ideas are wonderful and I can't wait until I have some time to CASE them. Thanks so much for all that you do.

Debi Costello said...

What a fun idea! I will be watching the race on Sunday too (GO Tony!), but my other passion is off-raoding and camping with my family. We have a '66 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 (www.tlca.org) and have met the greatest bunch of people from all over. I scrap pictures of our adventures, and the Making Tracks wheel has been a staple!

Thanks for letting me share!

scfranson said...

Congratulations! Love your blog! Other hobby: I crochet, stamp, make cards, coupon.

Alison Molumby said...

Believe it or not, I have another equally time-consuming hobby. I play drums in a scottish pipe band. We compete several times a month all summer. I've been doing this for nearly 30 years, so it predates stamping by a mile!

Jacquie Spilak said...

Hi Dawn
I just recently discovered your blog and you have such great ideas. My other hobbies include cross-stiching, reading, and movie watching. As well I love hockey too. I mean what else is there to do on a cold winter day then watch hockey.

Emily Shelton said...

Reading! In fact I am working on our basement now...one corner is my stamping corner and one corner is going to be my new reading corner!

MerryMerlin said...

Gosh...I love to do so many things. Read, make stuff (duh!), and especially make music (classical).

Laura W said...

I love to read in any spare time I can find!! :) Thanks, your blog is lots of fun!

5000 hits, thats great. I have had many hobbies over the years, my DH calls them fads and I have a basement full of stuff to proof it. LOL But I must say that stamping has lasted the longest, maybe I've found my nich. Thanks for the candy and I also will be watching the race.

When I'm not stamping, my favorite activity is reading. I really like murder mysteries that are not too gruesome...I can't handle a thriller!

NancyS said...

I like any type of paper crafts, as well as reading, volunteering at the library, and having coffee with friends every Friday morning.
Congrats on your blog.
