Blog Candy Unity Blog Hop Unity Stamp Company Unity stamps by me

[1.1.2015] season’s givings + Unity blog hop *giveaway*

Season’s Givings Blog Hop

I’m so excited to be a part of the Season’s Givings hop again this year.  And to amp up the EXCITEMENT Unity Stamp Co has joined in on the fun too.  It is such a BIG, HUGE hop day.

I am hopping as both part of the Unity design team and as part of the Season’s Givings blog hop.  Depending on where you are arriving from, I’ll send you on your way at the bottom of the hop.  In either case, there is a ton to see and a ton of prizes to win.

A little about the Season’s Givings hop… a bunch of companies and bloggers all gather together to celebrate the season and by giving.  Every participant in this hop has a gift to give.  So make sure to leave comments and/or follow instructions on how to enter each giveaway.  FOR ME… just leave a lovely comment and I’ll pick a winner to receive the prize package below.  The prize package is for those in the USA, if you happen to win and are international, I’ll email you a $15 gift certificate to Unity Stamp Co instead.

my personal giveaway | a little thank you from me

I must admit, the blog was a little quieter this year.  Lots of life events to steal away my crafty blog time.  I stayed busy with the Unity Stamp Company design team, designing stamps for Unity and the Tag You’re It Challenge design team. Not to mention keeping up with family and friend’s events requiring cards.  Ha.

I have a couple of thank you cards to celebrate my THANKS today.  I really can’t express how THANKFUL I am that you take the time to visit me.  My little heart is warmed greatly by your visits, your comments and love.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

My 3 furry babies spent the weekend with their grandparents after Christmas.  My husband and I were married in Vegas 11 years ago on the 28th.  We tend to celebrate in Vegas every chance we get.  My parents went above and beyond this time as my little Lulu ripped off her toenail.  Yikes.  Lulu took it in stride and my parents were troopers and took her to the vet for us.  Grandparents of the year, right!?!  My little rugrats sent their grandparents this thank you for taking such good care of them.

I just adore this owl, he is my fave for sure.  I paper pieced his body, colored his legs with Copics and then added some glossy accents to his glasses.  Isn’t he darling?  I paired him with the perfect sentiment for today…  because I want to thank ALL of you with all my heart!!! ♥︎♥︎♥︎

I can’t thank my blog friends enough for sticking by me and if you are a new visitor, welcome.  I wish you a year full of happiness, joy and blessings.  Happy New Year.
