Can you say BLOG CANDY?

Having birthdays are such fun and sharing them with you doubles the pleasure for me! Here's what's in my BLOG CANDY store for you as I celebrate my birthday on the 18th July...

Blog Candy Draw #1 (international draw)



I'm using this bag as my Big Shot Bag - and loving it! You can use it for your own craft tote, an overnight bag, anything you can think of!

Blog Candy Draw #2 & #3 (local draw)

The Scrapbook Factory Shop has generously sponsored TWO x R50.00 gift vouchers - which I will use for local draws.



Thank you Carolyn of the Scrapbook Factory Shop for sponsoring these prizes!

Blog Candy draw #4 (international draw)



This candy consists of the storage container, along with a variety of embellishments.

Blog Candy Draw #5 (international draw)



This candy has a lovely set of Chiswick unmounted stamps, and some fab self-adhesive bling strips.


What to do to win some CANDY...

1. Be a follower or an email subscriber.
2. Leave a comment about someone who inspires you to be creative, whether it's your favourite designer, your mom, husband, kids, friends, etc.

If you'd like to post a link on your own blog or website, to the blog candy giveaway, you're welcome to do so, and you'll receive an extra ticket in the draw. Let me know in the comment!

The draws will take place on the 31st July and winners names posted on the 1st August.

TFL!

Would love to win this gorgeous bag! Thank you for the opportunity. My sweet granddaughter inspires me to play with paper and to enjoy life through the eyes of a child! Thank you!

I am a follower on your blog and always enjoy the things you share with us. Happy Birthday!! To answer the question about who inspires my being creative: I grew up in a family that was messed up as best!! Lots of junk went on and the kids were encouraged to stay out of the way. As I grew up I had amazing people come into my life and those people encouraged me in all parts of my life. I loved art but just knew I wasn't any good at it. But, these wonderful people taught me I could do anything I ever wanted to do. I love playing at being creative because those great people taught me that I just needed to do it and believe in myself. No more comparing myself to what I was taught to believe as a child. No doors were closed to me...I just had to turn the knob on the doors and go in! I will forever be in debt to those people who taught me to believe and do! We all need people like that in our lives and we do to be that person for others.

OOPS...I usually leave my address on my blog notes to others and forgot.

Happy Birthday! My inspiration comes from my daughter. It has never occured to her that there might be a project or craft that I can't do so I constantly get to learn new things!!

Scrappy Rat said...

Happy Birthday! :) I am inspired by my friends on the Fiskateer message board. They always have cool projects to upload, so I want to come up with new things too!

Happy Birthday ! Helen We share the same month for our birthday. I posted your give away on my blog. Thank you for giving us a chance for your wonderful goodies.

Casmiles said...

Wow Helen - what great candy! I'll be selfish and hope I win since my birthday is in August. I love your idea of a month long celebration (instead of just a day) for our birthday, and a win on the 31st of July would be the perfect start to my celebration! As for where I get my inspiration - so many places. Obviously as others have mentioned - from special bloggers and friends and fun things/ideas I encounter during my day. Keep it up - you do inspire us. And keep celebrating - you've got almost 1/2 a month left! Have a wonderful weekend! Cindy

Susan Nel said...

Happy Birthday Helen,,,hope you're having a wonderful day,,,

Elexa said...

Kimberly Wilson inspires me to be creative these days. She is the author of "Tranquilista" a book I've been reading. She really gets the vibe I feel about myself. I want to be tranquil and live my life with meditation and yoga added but I'm also sassy and love wearing heels and being an entrepreneur, therefore, I'm a tranquilista!
