RAK and purchase

Just a note that I revised yesterdays post and added that the winner needs to contact me by this Friday!!

This is a RAK I won from Michelle at I Luv Scrapping. Lots of fun goodies...THANKS!!

And this little fantastic crafting tool flew all the way back home with me from my trip to Florida! LOL! I have tried for a month to get one of these Martha Stewart Score Boards back home and I even called Michaels BEFORE I drove an hour to the store the weekend before my trip and the lady said they finally got them in and there were plenty of them. So like an idiot I believed her and when I got there guess what??? Yep, all gone!! GRRR!!! So I questioned a lady and she said yeah we sold all three of them. THREE!? What happened to plenty?? Clearly my definition of plenty isn't three! For cryin' out loud this is a hot item!!! LOL!
So I contacted my mom and asked her if we could stop by the local Michaels once we flew into Jacksonville, Florida. And there is where they really had PLENTY of them to pass around (must not be such a hot item in that area?) and I was lucky enough to take along a 50 percent off coupon so I got this little gem for only 10 dollars!! What a bargain!

Now I can't compare this to the scor-pal as this is the first scoring item I have owned but if you want a comparison I found a really cool blog review here.

Thanks for stopping by and I will be back tomorrow with a Doodle Palace sneak peek!!
This image is so adorable you don't want to miss it!

Winner Announced!

Okay...I bet your all wondering what the recycled circles were on my Give A Hoot Candy card huh?? I was really sneaky this time! Recently I have seen things done with toilet paper rolls and toilet tissue so I decided to look a little harder for items not normally used in crafting and lo and behold I found these perfect items...tampax boxes and always wrappers!!! ROFL!! Yep, good ol' feminine products to the rescue! LMAO! And yes it was only the outer packaging so everything was sanitary! All I had to do was run the cardboard/plastic through my cuttlebug with a circle nestie die and voila!! Pretty clever right? You just never know what you will find around the house to use in crafting! :)

Now for the good stuff....the CANDY WINNER!!!
I had 10 people eligible for the candy and once again I had my hubby pick a name out of the lucky camo John Deere hat and that person is.........

Annette Bowes!!! Congrats! Please e-mail me with your mailing address and I will get your surprise candy on the way!

***Added on 3-22-10...if winner does not contact me by March 26th at noon EST I will draw another winner.

Thanks to all of you that played and those that left lovely comments...hope I can do another giveaway soon!

Happy Spring!!

Hope everyone is finding warmer temperatures as Spring is finally here!! YAH!
Sorry I still haven't shown a card lately...serious lack of mojo since coming back from vacation...also lots of time at my job, building a house and regular chores. Where does the time go??

I will be back later though with the Give A Hoot Candy Winner!! So stay tuned!!!
I also took a few pictures yesterday of some new crafty items I bought so maybe that will inspire me to create! :)
