Happy Thanksgiving Blog Candy

*****I wanted to push this back up to the top to remind everyone to enter!!***** This will stay at the top for a couple more days so scroll down to read new posts***********

I want to wish everyone in the USA a very Happy Thanksgiving! I am so thankful for so many things. One of the things I am thankful for is my scrap booking community. I love the camaraderie, the inspiration, the fun, I just love it all! So as a thank you I want to offer a blog candy giveaway.

As you probably know if you follow me, I am on the Design Team for Crafter's Companion. When I first joined their team they sent me one of their Ultimate Tools. I had never used one before and wondered if I would ever want to use it. Well....guess what?? It is used EVERY SINGLE TIME I scrap! Here is what they say about it at Crafter's Companion,

"The all-in-one, compact carry-case which allows you to score, measure, trim, emboss and embellish; create boxes, shaped card blanks, envelopes and so much more… The Ultimate Crafter's Companion is everything you will ever need for your card making projects, in one handy and portable carry case. Includes a 24 full page instruction booklet and a 2 1/2 Hour Project & Instructional DVD which takes you step by step through 12 different projects and detailed instructions. "

Guess what?? I'm giving away a Crafter's Companion Ultimate Tool!!!

All you need to do to enter is:

1. Follow me.

2. Link back to me from your blog.

3. Leave a comment telling me what you are thankful for this year.

That's it!

This starts today November 24th and ends on December 24th. I will try to post the winner on December 25th.

And YES, this is open to ALL my followers, no matter where you live. I'm thankful for you ALL!!

Happy Holidays

We had a lot of fun and spent two hours walking up and down the isles laughing and joking! I got some ribbon, brads, paper packs and scored and E2 for 199! But I had to hide it under the X-mas tree! Can't wait to bust it open... Do you think anyone would notice if I opened it and slide my old expression inside instead??? Ha that would be funny! Have a great night! We are leaving to go camping...

  17. Hi Stacy! Thanks for a chance to win. I found your lovely blog and giveaway from Cathy (CathyPlus5). I am now your newest follower. I am thankful for SO many things, but one of those things would have to be all the wonderful friends God has given in the blog world. I get SO much inspiration and encouragement from you all, and for that I am truly grateful. I would like to personally invite you to stop by my blog and also follow me (which is always an honor).

  24. i am thankful about the introduction to blogging world....as well as my new job...plus health of my family

  25. Hi Stacy, you know I totally missed your blogcandy (shame, shame....). I have so little blogtime these days that I miss quite a few posts here and there and this one is one of them. Fact of the matter is that I'm at home sick right now, and since I have no energy for anything else, all I do is sit behind the computer for a little bit and try and catch up, so here I am. Anyhow, you want to know what I'm grateful for? Well, I've been having my mammograms for a couple of years now, and this year I think was the 3rd time for me. Now all around me it seems friends are getting the bad new and are suffering from breast cancer, and I must admit that this year was the first time I was really anxious and worried about the outcome. Now stupid me thought that you would receive a letter only when there was bad news, so when my hubby told me last week there was a letter for me, my world collapsed, only to find out after I had opened it that I was fine! But for a moment there I actually felt what every woman who does get this awfull message must feel. I am fine and for that I am grateful, but I feel for all the women that are going through this unfair fight right now, especially those that are close to me, one of which is fighting a loosing battle. Sorry this is not a cheerful comment, it just struck me when you asked what I am grateful for. So never mind the terrible cold I am having right now, I do moan, but I shouldn't..... Hugs, Frea

  26. p.s. Sorry about the long post, I suppose this was on my mind more that I realised myself. Hugs, Frea

  27. what sweet candy Stacy :) I am increasingly thankful that my hubby and I both have jobs in this economy - we are struggling but not homeless and that is truly a reason to be thankful. I am thankful for my family and for my hubby's family and that we are all mostly healthy including his 101 yo grandmother - so thankful for each special moment we get to spend with her. Thanks for being so sweet!
