Welcome to part seven of my Fourth Blogoversary Celebration. I have had a lot of fun filling the boxes and reading your comments with the answers to my questions each day. The boxes now include over a dozen individual gifts and I think they are almost ready to mail. I hope you are taking the time to read the comments from other people - there have been some great tips and interesting ideas shared.
I want to thank all of the people who visit my blog regularly. I haven't posted about this celebration on message boards or forums because I would like the people who have been my readers over the years to have better odds of winning a box.
Here is how the giveaway works:
Just like last year, I have three boxes that I will be filling with gifts that I'll send to three blog readers. Each day I'll add more things to the boxes until they are full and ready to ship. You can comment on every post until the boxes are full to maximize your chance to be chosen by random draw. You don't have to be a follower or a subscriber to win, however, if you enjoy my blog, subscribing by email will help you make sure that you don't miss anything - just click HERE and fill in your address, then reply to the confirmation email to be added to the list. If you prefer to "follow" you can do that by clicking "Join this site" at the top of the right side column.
If you are a subscriber or follower, you can leave another comment and have a second chance each day as a way for me to thank you for your support. If you are a Facebook user you can also "like" the Capadia Designs page HERE and leave another comment telling me that you are a Facebook fan.
The last item is a large clothespin- these are fun to use for displaying cards or holding important notes. These have a Christmas dove design but can easily be altered. You could take them apart and paint them or simply add paper covering the design.
I used some cupcake and heart patterned paper (from the same K & Company paper pad that is included in the box) and cut pieces to fit above and below the hinge of the clothespin.
...or turn it sideways to hold a card for display.
I always keep an eye out for the items that are on sale after the Christmas holidays - the red can be used for Valentines Day and the green for St. Patrick's Day. (I have even separated bags of Christmas M &Ms into red and green - they last a few months and look cute!).
Here is the question for today - be sure to answer it in a comment below.
When do you find time to craft? Are you an early riser who squeezes in some time before the regular days starts, do you grab bits of time during the day (maybe when your children are napping?) or are you a night owl - working when the rest of your household is sleeping? Do you do most of your crafting at home or do you get together with others in classes or at crops? Is the finished product or the act of creating more important for you? Do other members of your family do any crafting?
Thanks for all of the get well wishes! I took it very slow yesterday and rested a lot. I am starting to feel better and should be back to normal soon.
One more note - Blitsy added lots of varieties of Card Candi to their site on Wednesday. Enfys (Going Buggy) uses these legless paper brads a lot. She brought me some Card Candi from England when we met in Germany and now I can add some more colors to my stash. The photo above shows one of the Card Candi projects I saw at CHA in 2011 in the Craftwork Cards booth.
Please click HERE to join Blitsy if you are not yet a member - it's free to join and once you are a member you can refer your friends and earn credits to shop on the site. There are also some Tim Holtz dies and embossing folders, sets of Memento inks and the Xyron Cheetah available on the site now.
Blitsy does not ship outside the US - if you are in Australia, you can get Card Candi from Mandy at Scrappy-go-Lucky.
