Blog Candy

As I clean up my stamp room I'm find some duplicate stamps or ones that I bought but never used.
I thought why not give them away to someone who can give them some love!!

This year I vow to use everything I buy! I'll give good thought before ordering online or picking up at the LSS if it's REALLY going to be used more than once. 

If you are interested in this little bit of blog candy please leave me a comment letting me know what you see yourself doing this year in the crafting world.
Is it trying something new? Scrapbooking? Getting on a DT? Designing your own stamps? Opening a store? 
Do tell!
I will leave open to everyone who can comment anywhere in the world.
Comments will close on Wednesday night and I'll draw a winner on Thursday morning before heading to work!

Stamps are:
My Favorite Things: Calendula and Corn Maze Girl
Verve: Bunny Shake and Proverbs 16:9

Have a great weekend!

Oh boy! I am hoping this is the year I get brave enough to submit for a publication call. Not sure yet but it is a goal I want to try and meet. Just need to get up the nerve to do it.

Joy said...

I don't have any of these! This year, my goal is to do the Project Life Mini Album, it's ordered and now I'm just waiting on it! Thanks for this opportunity!

Regina Hamilton said...

My goal this year is to try more techniques (water coloring, spritzing, molding paste). There are so many different things I just want to try.

Mandee said...

This year I am going to take part in the OWH mailing and make cards to send to solders. I am slow but I am going to do as many as I can.

KathyE said...

My goal this year is to make ALL my cards. I always have good intentions but then life gets in the way and I run out of time. I also plan on getting some of my quilting UFO's completed too.

Susan said...

I've been thinking about making cards for Ronald McDonald House this year....love to have these sweet sets for giveaway cards!.....and for friends, too!

Patti said...

This year I am setting some ambitious goals with numbers attached to assess my progress. Here us what my list looks like now:
200 cards
200 digital scrapbook pages (keep up with 2013 and finish 2011 and 2010 and get them printed!)
crochet 2 afghans
sew 4 purses (one for each season)
Learn enough woodwaorking to make a bunk bed for my niece's American Girl dolls and sew mattresses and blankets for the beds.
and finally -
find some time to relax!

Thanks for this oportunity.

My goal is mainly to just keep stamping regularly and using all the stuff I have. I plan to participate in a few more challenges too.

Anne Marie Hile said...

Oh, you buy duplicate stamps, too? Ha! This year, I am vowing to cut into the risiculous supply of patterned papers I have stockpiled in my room...same goes for ribbon. Another goal is to get my Etsy shop up and running. Oh and I also want to learn how to use my Copic markers like a pro. So many hoals...I better get crackin'! :)

Oh I would love to win! This year I need to tackle my son's scrapbook to give it to him as a graduation present. Yes, I have till June to get it done and have only done minimal work on it. HELP!! Thanks for your generosity.

How sweet of you to offer up these lovely goodies!
Goals for the year, hmmmm - I think the main one is to colour more with my copics. I took an amazing class with Suzanne Dean back in November and it really inspired me to get colouring. I learned so much! This will help me with another goal which is to show some love to my yet un-inked stamps.
Lastly, I would like to to more scrapbooking - I lean toward cards as they are a quicker fix when I have limited time.
Cheers,
Shanna :)

Sandra said...

My ultimate goal is to finish an album that has been in the works for over a year now and submit some cards for publication chances. Have so much enjoyed looking over all of your postings and blog. You have kept me inspired for sure.

Alanna said...

I would like to get back to scrapbooking. Haven't done any in years. Thanks for the chance to win.

SueB said...

I've vowed to try a new technique or style from each stamping-related magazine I buy this year. Thanx for the inspiration and blog candy opp!

Margo said...

I used to be an avid Scrapbooker, but for the past few years have been solely a card maker. This year I hope to get back to creating pages for my kids!

Cathy said...

Thank You Dawn for the chance to win your stamp blog candy.
I hope to be better coloring with the copics. That would be a huge adventure for me. And of course make lots of cards for the year.

Ann R. said...

I am excited about this blog candy. I have been eyeing that Corn Maze for a looooong time! Goals: Make 6 of every card I make; keep sets ready for gift giving and use what I buy. (I am a bit of a hoarder!)

Julie L. said...

Hi, I just want you to know I read your blog every day and love all of the different inspiration you provide to your readers! This year I am going to really try to finish my boys' scrapbook albums and try and use Project Life. Thanks for the chance to win!

Last year I set my goal to get my crafty stuff published... I managed to do it twice. I've kinda been bitten by a bug. So that's my goal this year... to get published again.
I love your blog and adore your work. :)

ellie said...

Every year I say the same thing...get the Christmas cards done before November...didn't make it this past year either...so maybe THIS will be the year I finally get it done!!! LOVE your inspiration, and thanks for the chance to win!!

Stacey Schafer said...

Fabulous blog candy, Dawn! I've taken on a new hobby besides card-making...digital scrapbooking..and loving it:)

Jennifer said...

Oh, Dawn!

I love, love, love MFT's Pure Innocence stamps!!! :) I don't have these (or many!) though!

My major goal for the year is to start a blog (my son, who was 9 at the time, started one last year & is still after me to start mine!)!!!!! Only then will I be able to go out for some design teams!

Thank you for making us commit to our goals (now that I've said it out loud or at least written it, I have to follow through, right?!) and for the generous giveaway!

Crafty hugs,

Oh, thanks for the chance to win these awesome stamps. I too love MFT's stamps.

My main goals are to get caught up on my scrapbooking. I am really behind and in 2012 I just didn't make as many layouts as I would have liked.

thanks again

My goal for the year is to try and get published in at least 2 different crafty magazines. Thanks for a chance to win, Dawn!

Glennis said...

This year I am going to spend more time attempting to do some mixed media canvas's and also clean up my craftroom at least once a week!!

Tania said...

This year I am going start up a cardmaking blog and enter regular card challenges.

Amy Johnson said...

My goal is the same as yours: using what I buy. It's ridiculous how much I buy, but do not use.

PatsyB said...

I have made several GOALS for this coming year!First off is to get my craft room in order!! I spend half my time looking for things and then I am too tired to make cards. Also, I bought a new organizer and put everyone's birthday in it so I can actually get a card to them on time instead of only making Belated B-day cards! I know my friends are sick of those. I have also worked out a budget of what I will spend on stamps. Good luck on that one!!! Anyway,I love the goodies you are offering and thanks so much for sharing not only your stamps but your talent!

Joanie said...

Sounds like many of us have the same goals....and mine are the same, work more on my blog (so I'm not embarassed by it), enter more challenges, and limit what I buy, I have a TON of stuff and really need to use it.

ANGELA STEVENSON said...

would love to stamp more!

Rema said...

My goal is to start submitting again for publication....

Betsy said...

Wow!!! This is great candy!! Love those PI kids!!
My goal this year is to get into my craft room more often. I seem to go in spurts, and I'd love to just be able to get in there for a little while every day. I've found that papercrafting is so relaxing for me ~ I completely lose track of time because I just enjoy it so much!
Thanks so much for the chance to win!!

Gypsy 2 said...

This year I will start my own blog!!!
I have watched and looked and now think I may have to courage to give it a go.
