Crafty Sunday With A 500 Follower Giveaway!!

Hey All!!!

It has been a LOOOONNNNGGGG time since I was able to have a CRAFTY SUNDAY! Do you remember them??? I feel like I forgot what they were! I have been working my behind off for the last few months and I feel like I am FINALLY able to get things to slow down at work and now at home! Booger is  now officially set in a routine and is comfortable playing with his toys in his room while I do my crafty stuff in my craft room. I think that it helps that my craft room is RIGHT NEXT to his bedroom, hee hee!

Speaking of craft room, HOLY COW! It was SUPER messy for the longest time! I have no idea how I was able to get ANY projects done! Well, today, even though we lost an hour, this girl didn't let ANY time get away from her! My hubby had to work extra today at work, so I woke up bright and early with him and just got right to work! I cleaned my book shelf, got rid of all my scraps that I said I would use and never did, I re-organized all my embellishments into folders with a theme name on it to make it easier to see what I had, I re-organized all my paper into just patterned paper and then patterned paper with purpose (Birthday, Christmas, Halloween, Wedding, Baby, etc) into alphabetical by maker, I organized all my clear stamps, and I re-organized all my embossing folder and dies! Can I tell you just how much stuff that I had that I never even realized??? WOW!

I even found time to run to Michael's to take advantage of the Scrapbook Paper Pad sale! I found Heidi Swapp's No Limits Paper Pack & Recollections Today, Tomorrow, & Forever Paper Pack! Wanna know what else I found??? A Washi Tape holder/dispenser! WHOOT WHOOT! Here are the pictures of my finds:

Heidi Swapp No Limits Paper

Recollections Today Tomorrow Forever Paper

Washi Tape Dispenser filled up according to color!
And after that was all said and done, I even found time to DO a little bit of crafting!
My sister in law (and business partner) came over so we could get started on the invites for my step Mother In Law's surprise 50th party! My Father in Law said to do a 70's theme and that was it! So, we went to the Silhouette Store to look for some 70's inspired images, and boy, did we find EXACTLY what we wanted!!! We googled some sayings for fun birthday sayings for our theme and we found a super cute one! My sister in law got all excited because she said that she say an invite while she was looking for sayings that had the image we found on it! There was a lot of "testing" with the invite, BUT, we finally got it to be the way we wanted!!!
Here it is:
Cute Snail File (for flowers)-Silhouette Store
Camper Van File (for the van)-Silhouette Store
Disco Diva

Isn't it SUPER cute??? I LOVE IT! Doing this and seeing just how cute it turned out makes me want to invest in a Laser Printer! And don't mind that green paper...I realized AFTER I shared it on my Instagram that I had my cell AND address on there! YIKES! Glad I deleted it!!

So, now....a little announcement.... And the important announcement is in ALL RED!
So, in an effort to gain my followers, I have decided to host another Follower Giveaway!
This giveaway is going to be A-MAZ-ING!!! Here's what you will be entered to win:

Tim Holtz Idea-ology Configurations Boxes
S.E.I Spiral Bound Journal
Close To My Heart Simply Snapshots Paper Pack
Close To My Heart Petite Perks Stamp Set
Stampin' Up Calypso Coral Organdy Ribbon (10 Yards)
K & Company SMASH Mini Book
I think that is a pretty awesome giveaway!!! As soon as I hit 500, this package will go home to one lucky follower!!!
But how you ask? How DO you win??
Now, you asked HOW....Here's how!!!



The reason you have to say who sent you to my blog is because the friend who sends you to my blog gets:

 2 FREE SVG Files from my Craftin' And Stampin' Etsy Shop!

Once I reach 500 people, please look for the winner to be announced! I will announce it in a post, and in an update of CRAFTIN' AND STAMPIN' facebook page!

So just so we are clear, ANY of my followers can win, AS LONG AS YOU FOLLOW THE RULES! I will be checking to make sure all requirements are completed if you win! If not, I will pick a new winner! I like to be fair!! I will NOT comment on this page because I will make RANDOM.ORG be the way I pick my winner and I do not want any of my comments to be posted. Instead, I will thank you by visiting your blog and becoming a follower and thanking you there!!!

So, these are the same rules that applied to my 250 Follower Giveaway! I am so very excited for this! And once again, this is because I so very much appreciate my followers!!!

OK, I think I am pretty much ready to call it quits now!!!

Hope to catch you all Craftin' and Stampin'!

I am a new subscriber to your blog by email.

I guess it is unfortunate, in a way, that you require people to have a blog and do Facebook, in order to be eligible. I don't have access to Facebook and I don't have a blog.....but I am subscribing to you, anyway, because I think your blog looks interesting. I followed the link from the Scrapbooking Queen's post abt the Birthday Blog Hop today and found you for the first time today.

Hope you get your 500 followers soon. Your blog is cool and you deserve it!

Unknown said...

Yay! I would love to win this package of awesome goodies :)
