My First Blog Candy

So, many things to say....

Last night before I went to bed, I was 2 away from 5000 hits. And some how this morning, only FIVE hours later (yes, I know.... only 5 hours... uh, the boys are HOME! YAY!), I'm at 5200.

Did I mention that my luggage didn't come home with us Sunday night? UH, HELLO... my stamping stuff was in there!!! Okay, okay, calm down. BUT ALL of my A MUSE stamps except 2 that I loaned to my friend Amy, were in there. Did I say ALL.... yes, ALL. Okay, breathe in, then out... so at 11pm last night, our luggage showed up. All 3 pieces. The connection in Miami to Dallas was really tight and we had to RUN through customs with our bags. "They" stopped me and said, "Ma'am, you need to slow down". I said we're not going to make our connection... (and I have to get home to my boys... okay I didn't say that but I was thinking it). So they looked it up and said, "Do you think you can run all the way to your gate?" They took our bags, led us through the employee security section and off we went. We made it... our 3 bags didn't. Anyway, my A Muse stamps and the rest of my stuff are safe in their home now.

But these 2 things together made me think that's it's high time I did some blog candy. So, I'm going to do my own rendition of the A Muse luggage contest, guess how many stamps are in there - only because they are all still packed. Leave a comment here with your guess before midnight Central Wednesday night. The winner will be picked at random from the comments (i.e. not the one that guesses the number - although if you guess the EXACT number, I'll send you something too).



The prize:


Lots to alter and some other stuff:
2 large Gable boxes
3 small Gable boxes
Target $ spot green stripe container (great for cuttlebug dies)
6 medium weight coasters
5 chipboard flowers
Some prima flowers
Some black and white polka dot ribbon
Michael's Pregnant lady stamp
SU! Small incentive stamp
Tags in various colors of SU! cardstock including vellum
10 white bags - good for kid's school treats (they are the thin kind)
2 mini manila folder embellishments
6x6 12 month Desktop calendar to alter

Let the guessing begin.

Thanks so much for following my creative journey...
