Blog Candy Winner!

Thank you for your feedback on your favorite pubs and blogs on my blog candy post, it is very helpful! A goal of mine is to submit to more publications, although I will never stop submitting to CardMaker! Getting published in multiple places requires being extremely organized with all the different deadlines and submission processes, so for me that will be a bigger challenge than making the projects! There are several card calls closing this week, so I have made an effort to submit to a couple new ones for me (a few of which coincidentally many of you said you love!), and am happy to report I did have success with one, coming in September of this year! more on that soon, It is a fantastic pub, filled with so many things I was inspired to make but is not one that was mentioned here among your favorites (from those who commented anyway) , so I guess I'll need to give away another issue when it comes out! :)

So, the winner!! The signed CardMaker copy goes to:

Mel, so sorry that you are still not feeling any better...will continue to pray for you. I love Cardmaker and Papercrafts, but at the moment neither of my subscriptions are current. I do have all my old magazines, whatever they are that I go back and look at...would never get rid of them. Ha Congrats on your success. Will buy this issue if I do not win.

Congrats Patti, please send me your snail mail addy so I can pop it in the mail to you!

I'll be back with the "answer" to my "I Spy" challenge, I have not read the same answer twice and it is cracking me up LOL! so much so, that I don't really think there is one right answer, some of the ones you pointed out were ones I hadn't counted, hee hee! I'm going to take a few pics to show you were a few hidden ones are, again just for fun! :)

And soon, on update on "my condition". This morning I am hopeful I may be about to turn a corner, although to use another cliche I will also say it is always darkest before the dawn, and yesterday I felt HORRIBLE! so I must be about to get better! Talk to you soon!


  1. You so rock with all your pubs. I think the stamp/card world has finally realized you are TOPS in all your work!!!! YAY YOU!!!

    I hope you are doing better too. I will keep you in my prayers, my dear friend. *HUGS*

  2. Congrats Patti! It is a great issue and know you will enjoy it.
    Kudos to you Mel for branching out and trying for more publications...looking forward to seeing what you have in September :o) I am sure it takes more organization, but you can do it, get a BIG calendar with a BIG red marker, lol! Hope/pray the hand improves...

  3. are so real in all the projects I have ever seen. Given the right tools of the trade and a whole lot more creativeness zing that I can mustard, I might be knocking at your door. LOL!!!!! Your skill is exactly why I keep coming to your site to see all the you have to offer. I never walk away disappointed...YOU are fantastic!!!!
    Here's hoping you continue to improve to full health!!!


Your generous feedback helps make my work and this blog better! Thanks for inspiring and motivating me! :)
