Thanks and Technical Difficulties

Hello bloggy crafty friends. You all are so awesome for all the hard work and help sending new followers my way to my blog. Wow I almost did not think I was going to make it but with friends like you what was  I thinking?   You all worked so hard to get new viewers to my blog . I wish  I could give something to each of you.  Hey maybe one day right??? I have all these new followers now and am so excited. Most or some of you know my content will be changing and I am so hapy about that. There is not much content  and some know why and some of you do not. My blog is really new. Well really since mid February of this year. I have made some things and posted only a few picks of them. I have so much more to post. I will post them before the blog changes direction. This last year and the time I have spent recouping has almost been a blessing. It has really made me take stock and really really realize where my passions lie. God, my two favorite men(hubby and my lil Noah) Not so lil anymore he is having a big milestone birthday in May.Where does the time go? I feel like he was just born. Well most daysLOL!!!!!

 Well on to the contest. The contest rules were to just follow. All you had to do to win was follow. For more chances at winning you had the opportunity to link the contest on your blog or on fb or send some people my way for more chances to win. Pretty simple . Well Cricut Chick and Paula QuickDriver pretty much tied for first place. My intentions were to give out two prizes but like I stated  Iwish I could give to all of you. So Cricut Chick and Paula know whats coming their way. CCis getting Pearl ex powders and chose a Pooh Font Cart from Custom Crops. Paula is receiving Pearl ex powders and a stamp set of her choice from Sarah Pink Cricut's line of stamps PBD. For the random follower they will recieve also a set of  pearl ex pigments and random .org is acting crazy wonky on my blog. So that is why WE do not have the winner of that portion of the contest. As mentioned I stated  I was going to give the most refferal person the two items and the random follower a set of the powders but  I had so many that helped out and the two ladies tied I felt it only fair to give to both o them. I did mention when  I extended the contest an extra 12 hrs that there would be a surprise in store and that surprise was a cart and that is what Cricut Chick chose instead of a stamp set. So you never know what you might get when  I run a follower contest. Easy peasy kind of contest .Just by being a follower you havea chance of winning and referring and having your referrals comment who sent  them helps me chose the winner. For the follower that will receive the other set of Pearl ex pigments thanks for your patience on the random .org and I should have it in place by Wed. Thanks for a great contest and  I hope that you will continue to stick around as we get ready to start the content change .Chat with you all tomorrow. Night Night. Stacey

Winners ,well one of them so far

Yeah Yeah Yeah, We did it. Thanks so much for coming on over . At least you all know I exsist even though I do not have to many projects up on my blog you came on over and showed the support. I so appreciate all of you for becoming followers and for referring others to come to my site. We even passed the 150 mark and Im so very excited. Well I will make this short because I know how you all just love reading my 10 minute stories. For the referral part of the contest Cricut Chick came in first place. Now for the other winner who is being drawn the app for that on my blog is being very testy, So I will have to give you the answer to the other winner well later today since it is almost 2 am. CricutChick and the other winner will win Pearl ex powders and Cricut Chick also gets a second sweet surprise and she already knows what that is.  So yeah to you for making this so great for me. I hope that all of you will come back to see who the other winner is and also visit often as we have some great fun planned. Thanks again for making this happen and for making it fun. Hugs,Stacey

Woot We made it!!!! You did it!!!

Thank you so much for all your support in helping me reach my goal. You all did it. And it really shows how supportive we can be of one another. I know some of you have a huge competetive streak in you and there is nothing wrong with a woman who goes after what she wants and who helps others reach their goals as they try to reach a goal themselves. 160 as  I count right now Paula, CricutChick,Gloria,and Deanna,  in no certain order are in the running for the referral contest portion that will have a stamp set of your choice.Well now not  that  I am not happy that I reached 150 ,in fact I am super excited how you all pulled through for me and knowing that  I do not have much content on my site with my blog still being fairly new. There are a few reasons for that as I explained in an earler post this month. I am going to be changing my content up and have been talking and networking with some great peeps in the biz. They have all been so receptive to my ideas and  I can not wait to share everything  I will be doing with all of you. We have some big supporters for what  I will be rolling out and while dusting off the shelves and getting ready for the new stage of my blog.Which will be bigger and better,  I appreciate the patience. SO with that said Why not shoot for more followers. What can  I do to sweeten the pot???A cart Of choice hmmm??  Maybe another stamp set from one of your favorite companies hmm. O.k this will be a surprise and a good  one .Jeanne Siegal I have not forgotten about you. Got your email and your zip So you prize is on its way from the Feb contest. Sorry about the delay but you and I kept crossong paths with emails and we are straight now.  I think you will love your prize girl. So I will end the referral contest portion since you lil crafty gals are so good at a lil competition  I will let it go till tomorrow. Isnt it worth another stamp set or a cart?? Who knows what will be thrown in but itwill be good you know it!!!!!  Im ending it at noon just to give some of those who lined their blogs a chance to get some more referrals. i am limiting it though to those who already have theur blogs linked but not limiting the people who are referring if the ydo not have blogs.  ihope this makes  sense as  ialready have the names of those in the lead as posted above so it will not affect those in a bad way only betters your chance ie. CricutChick  That is just an example and does not mean that is who has won but used as an example. So if you started referring like she did then keep it going and at noon it stops. Again it just gives you extra chances. Its a close tie ladies. BigBigBig hugs for all your help. Oh and anothersweet prize becasaue the pot just got sweeter. You will have to stand by for the news. You will like the extra prize of choice on this one.

Show me some  love .Keep it coming ladies 22 more and we will have 2 winners.  Thanks Ends tonight!!!!!!

Sweetening the pot

Hey ladies and crafty friens. You all know Sarah at Pink By Design who has the snazziest stamp set going these days in the crafty world. IMO. Well I have decided to add that to the pot. For the person who has the most referrals to my site I will throw in a set of her stamps limited to 20 bucks or under and its your choice of what stamps you want not what I want you to have. So hows that for sweetening the deal????? Well start reffering and make sure you let your followers know to comment under the 150 follower post after  they FOLLOW on Google to let me know who sent them over. Contest ends tomorrow. If we do not reach 150 by tomorrow evening then I will not be sweetening the pot with Sarah's Stamps. Might have to get them for myself  or another reason. But send them on over. Please remember that my blog is new and that ther eis not much in the way of content. The content will be changing soon. I can not wait for all of you to see it. SO while we are dusting offthe shelves for the new content unveiling how about a 150 follower giveaway .You are automatically enetered jsut by already being a follower. There will be 2 sets of prizes as mentioned in the previous post 150 follower giveaway.

150 follower give away read all of the post as well as make sure to follow

Ok ladies we are alomst there to the 150 mark. I can not count all of the followings between the two follower apps. Some of you are on the Networked  following through Fb and also follow through the regular follower group. So  I will have to go through and see who is following through both to make sure  everyone has a chance at winning. If you are following through Networked blogs, thank you. If you are following both ways, thanks again. I so appreciate all the support. One think is though that through the random generator I believe if not mistaken that it will only generate the followers amnd comments through  the google following. So please please make sure you are following through the google follower as well and not just through networked blogs. It would make it a lot easier on the generating of the random pic for the two pearl ex prize give aways. Hereis a pick of what you might win. They are so very versitile and if you gototheir site you can see all the wonderful crafting you can do with these pigments. A little goes a long way. Glimmer mist ,mix with clear embossing pwder to get any color you desire, use for stamping,polymer clay to name a few. The list is endless. Ok two ways to win. 1. just follow through the google button to the left and subscribe. If you are already a follower than you are good. 2. you have lots of extra chances at winning by referring your friends to follow. Thhey must follow and also comment on who sent them to give you credit. The more referrals you have the better chance. Godd chance of winning with referrals since  Iam only shooting for 150. Would love more and if that happen great. If not  I would just love to hand out these prizes to thos that do follow and subscribe as well as reffer. You may also have anothe rchance if you post on your blog and link back or via fb. Alright ladies you have showed me so much support already. Can you help me meeet my goal?? The contest closes Sunday but may stretch to Monday . Though would love it to happen Sunday. Thanks again and keep sending your friends on over. We have some big things planned for this site.

a little something I made

A super simple understated notecard and matching gift tag.


150 plus follower giveaway!!!!!

Alright ladies  I have spent the last month recouping from some personal stuff and also networking with some pople while away from my blog. I have two new sponsors on my right hand side bar who have some pretty nice stuff too for my crfty friends. First  I want to say about Fairy Cut and Universal Scrapbooking that they are both software companies. While Fairy Cut dotes that you can make your own carts for all your die cutting machines. That is just the tip of the iceberg with them. They have so much to offer with theier software besides cutting, the possibilities are endless in all kinds of crafting. They have an SVG feauture and so much more. You can make templates for rhinestnes and to top it off on their software they have bazzil cardstock for all your scrapping needs as well a rhinestone sizes for the artwork in their library so you can get that perfect template for all your blinged out items. They also have a free hand draw tool and otions for sewers and needle work crafting.The list goes on and on. Universal has a library of art work too that you can use with all ofyour cutters and do digital scrapbooking as well as other crafting. The unique thing with Universal is that if you are an artist who manipulates your images or even creates you own images they will let you download it to their library and give you credits for their art work which they call logos. That is how you purchase your art work through them with credits. So I will be giving or they have so graciously offered to give credit cards to their site too once a month to one of my bloggy followers as well as Fairy Cut has offered a software package a month in a drawing for one of my followers. So go check them out to the right. It wll take you straight to their page. On another note I would like to reah my goal of 150 followers by the end of the week. For that  I am giving away a super special grab bag of goodies in a drawing when  I reach my goal.  All you have to do to join in on the fun is either become a follower and subscriber for one  chance to win. For a second chance to win blog about it and link back to my page and for a third chance to win put it up on your status or talk about it on facebook. That is all pretty easy peasy. Thanks to all of you that continue to follow me and for being patient with me and my blog as  I get this show on the road. Oh one more way you can win is to comment on this post and tell me who sent you .The person who has the most referrals will also win a fun grab bag of goodies as well. So get statred and see if you will be the winner. The follower contest closes on Sunday and I may exctend it to Monday as I am getting started late with this post. Have a scrappyweek my friends
