Blog Candy Contest


Three classes down - 3 more to go! It's a full, full day! Isn't this star amazing? It's actually very easy, and a great way to use your decorative paper. This is about 9x9"! I'm definitely going to bring this back to teach - it's great bang for the buck - easy and it doesn't require much precision. Wahoo!
I'm also having my first every blog candy contest. I got some fun little goodies I want to share, so all you have to do is post a comment to the blog sometime this weekend. (Actually through 11:59 PM Monday night). I'll choose 3 winners randomly from those who left comments to win some little goodies. Easy as that!

Hey,

Look at you, aren't you something? The contest is a great idea. Hope you are having fun.

Leslie Hanna said...

Cool star! And heaven knows I have half your paper selection in my stash, so supplies are not a problem. :-) Thanks for the chance to win!

I'm looking forward to hearing more about your trip & seeing all fresh techniques you are mastering. Enjoy your travels!

Cassi said...

Hi Angela -- How fun to meet your twin! The star is gorgeous, I hope you can teach it before Christmas b/c I'd love to use them as decorations and a smaller version would make great ornaments or gift bag bling. Buy lots of stuff for us!

Claudia Lewis said...

I'm sure I can speak for all the Divas when I say, "We need to learn how to make that cool star!"
Enjoy your trip.

I am here at the Outer Banks for two weeks. I will try quilting, jewelry making, and tatting. I played in a bridge tournament and was 2nd and 3rd, and earned my first silver points.

Kim said...

You look like you are having way too much fun, but if you share when you get back....

Anjou Krelovich said...

Looks like a great time Angela! Can't wait to see all the wonderful goodies you bring back for the shop!

Najah said...

For a second there, I thought the star was the "blog candy" and that you'd be bringing back some edible sugar paper or something. Guess I'm just looking for a way to combine eating and crafting ;-) Thanks for the sneak peeks, Angela!

LPCrafting said...

Sign me up for the star class!! I love anything with stars. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

Sandra said...

The star is fabulous; I'm imagining an entire Christmas tree decorated with them. Hmm - I should have started last July - but you're just now taking the class. Guess I'll have to put it on my calendar for NEXT July!

Enjoy your trip!! I'm a customer from Massachusetts who comes in whenever i'm in Ashburn, VA visiting my Mom. I'm here in Ashburn now, but you're away! LOL! Of course I'll visit anyway. I'm here till the 17th of Oct. Thanks for the chance to win!!

Lisa said...

The star would be great to tie on a holiday gift...actually a gift in itself...but would be a beautiful addition to a package with tag.

Mayra said...

Thanks for the chance to enter your blog candy. Love the star..

Mary said...

What fun to see you on this blog! After the beginning pencils class last week and my very own little shopping spree (smuggled into the house and right down to the basement) I feel like a fat cat stamper this weekend. I'm so happy to have found your shop and even happier to be able to learn so many things from some of the great names in stamping. Thanks!

Laure said...

I'm glad that you said that making that star doesn't require a lot of precision. I would never be able to make it if it did! I'd love to learn how. Enjoy Orlando ... rain or not, it's still Florida (my home state!)

Jenn said...

It sounds like a great, productive trip! Can't wait to see what you pick up there.

Sunghee said...

Cards on the blog look beautiful. Can't wait to see the "goodies" you got.

That is a very nifty star!
Hope the rest of your trip is great.

Leslie said...

Glad to find your blog. I love your store but it's so far away for me I can't come very often.

cpullum said...

Please enter me in your Blog Candy Contest! Have a nice weekend! Thanks! Love Blog Candy!

I can't believe how many classes you are taking--hope you can remember it all, so we can pull it out of you when you get home!

It looks like you're having a blast in FL. Can't wait till my next trip up to your store. It's always a good time!! Hugs, Angi

That star is a beauty! Have a great time in your classes!

~*~Patty Szymkowicz said...

Nothing like some 'blog candy' to get people out of the woodwork ;)
What a lot of fun it looks and sounds like you're having Angela. It's fun hearing all about it!
Cheers!!!

Love the star. Can't wait to see it in person. Thanks for the chance to win.

Hi Angela - I broke my leg July 2 and the first fun thing I did when I could get up and out was come in for a make-n-take and sign up for a couple classes to re-energize my creative juices and of course to cheer myself up! The BEST part of my outing was when Susan said "wow, we haven't seen you in a while". I can't tell you how good that made me feel. I can hardly wait to learn to make the star!!! Joyce

Hola Angela,

Sounds like you're having fun--I envy you these trade show experiences. Although I bet they're exhausting, too. I can't wait to see the new loot!

That star is beautiful! Hope you're having fun!

Nikki said...

Hi Angela
The star is fabulous -- as are you! Will this be one of those very complicated items I will have to fly all the way back to learn? Gee, I hope so! Hugs
Nikki

Awesome star! Can't wait to hear all about your trip, as well as all the new stuff and techniques! Enjoy the rest of your trip :o)

Horse Poet said...

Hi Angela, that star looks good enough to eat...but then I would not be able to display it on my tree. Yikes...first, I need to learn how to make it! Please come home soon and teach us. Be safe, and continue having fun with learning. Melanie
