1 Year Blogoversary candy!

Good morning everyone!

(This is also sticky post ā€“ see what I mean by giveaway galore! Please scroll down for the post of the day – next one is it – I promise)

Can you believe I have been blogging for a year!! (exactly a year on May eight) .. I mean where has that year gone??

Here are a few of my personal favorite projects this year.

To thank you for your support this many months, I’m offering blog candy (tons of goodies worth over USD$70).

To win my blog candy, here is what you do:

  • Leave me a comment letting me know what inspires you (eg. colors, sketch, design, products etc)
  • Follow my blog (if you are not a current follower)
  • Post my blog button (on my sidebar) on your blog.

I will draw a winner from my comments on May 8. Please contact me by May 15 so I may get your prize out promptly.

Thank you my friends and see you on the flip side!

    Your friend,

  2. Happy Blogoversary Steph…I remember how exciting it is to celebrate your first year. Congratulations! Love your style…it is a broad range of different techniques…very cool. I am inspired by others who are passionate about their crafts. I enjoy using challenge inspiration to help me create, but love my Unity Stamps. They really awaken my creative beast.

    Congrats girl!! WOO HOO! You are a rock star if you have only had a blog for one year! AMAZING!

    It is hard to tell you what inspires me because I am inspired by EVERYTHING. I see design ideas in so many places. And one of the best places is right here on your blog!! Thanks for that.

    hugs, Stacy

    I love to experiment with new techniques and fun projects, particularly things that are interactive or 3D but really anything that is new to me. When I see a particularly captivating tutorial I have to sit down and craft using that technique!

  5. Becky D says:

    Hi Steph! Happy blogaversary! I am a new follower of yours just in the last week, but after looking at the projects above, I know why I just had to follow you :) Lovely projects and lots of inspiration! So, what inspires me? I love challenges and sketches, new products, but what really inspires me is other crafty people! When I see something I love, I just have to try it! If that means following a sketch or buying a new product (when my budget allows), then that is okay :) Thanks for the chance to win this lovely candy!

  6. Emily H says:

    Congrats on your one year blogaversary! you have made a lot of pretty cards. I like the one with coffee! :-)

    • Anjenic G says:

      I forgot to answer your question and I wanted to ask how do I become a follower of your blog. I see the button but every timeI click it I get this weird page with all types of letter and numbers. :-) I posted your candy on my blog and I’m mostly inspired by colors, and design! I like natural colors the nice fall colors of green, reds, organs and yellow. I know its Spring; but I really just love fall.
