CELEBRATION - Blog Candy!
It's not too late to enter!

Click the image to see it larger
And the WINNER IS.....Staci from New Jersey! (her blog is Precious Memories Scrapbooking and More) Congratulations Staci!  E-mail me your addy so I can send your goodies to you!

WOW!  I can't believe I've hit 50,000 visits already!  I can't thank all of you enough for making me feel every day that my blog is worthwhile.  I love sharing with all of you, and I love being a part of the online crafting community.  I have made some wonderful friends because of this blog, and I hope to make many, many more.

In celebration of my 50,000 visits, in the year that I turned 50 - two big milestones - I have some BLOG CANDY to give away!  Last week I promised you all a peek at my haul from Tuesday Morning.  Well, I decided not to show you and save it as a surprise giveaway instead, so here is part of it - the part I'm giving away!  All you have to do to win is be or become a follower AND leave a comment under this post.  On Wednesday, April 21 at 11:00 PM, I'll choose a winner from the comments and post the winner here. 

But wait, there's more!!   I'm currently at 683 followers.  If I reach 700 by midnight tonight, I'll also give away a pink Target pencil case for storing Gypsy, a 3-pack of styluses (is that the plural of stylus?) that includes one of the new bendable ones to "attach" to your finger for those marathon Gypsy design sessions, AND a surprise package of miscellaneous scrapping and cardmaking supplies.

That's TWO chances to win a prize - one at midnight tonight and one on Wednesday! All you need to do is comment, then spread the word so I can get 17 more followers by midnight tonight!  Easy Peasy!

PS - Don't forget to leave me a way to contact you!  If your user ID doesn't connect me to your email, please leave it in your comment so I can let you know the minute you win!  Good luck!

Had 703 followers by 9:27 PM Sunday!  Thank you all!
THE WINNER OF THE MIDNIGHT DRAWING IS....

Nicole of Croppin Momma Designs! Congratulations Nicole! E-mail your address and I'll get your prize to you ASAP!
