Happy Etsy and Blog Anniversary to ME!

STICKY: I'm going to leave this post at the top until I give it away.  Please scroll down for new blog posts.
It's been almost a year since I joined Etsy and decided that my cards were good enough to show to other people.  I'd like to believe I've evolved a lot since then.  This blog was started shortly after to talk about my creative journey, it has DEFINITELY evolved since then.  I would really like to thank everyone who comes here, reads my blog, plays my challenges, and gives me support.  I really appreciate it!  

Here's the blog candy!  YAY!  I'm sure you see that awful skull stamp that just won't go away.  There's another small clear stamp, a set of clear flower stamps, a glue pen, rub ons, scrapbook rivets and nails, stickers, and ribbon.  Something for everyone really.  :)

I'm gonna make you work just a little for this though.  I would like you to visit any of my design team member's blogs and leave a comment.  Come back here and let me know who's blog you commented on.  If you'd like an extra entry, you can mention this blog candy on your blog too.  Just leave me another comment with the link.  Here are the girls (in reverse alphabetical order):


This blog candy is for EVERYONE.  The only person who can't win is me.  Please one comment entry and one blog entry per person!  You have until Nov 1 at midnight Pacific time to enter.  I will do a drawing on Nov 2.
