I am writing this post with great excitement and gratitude! I recently crossed 100 followers on my blog and it is a milestone certainly worth celebrating. I started my 'Crafting Till the Crack of Dawn' blog on December 6th 2012 - thats about 4 months ago but I first began blogging in June 2012 with the Itsy Bitsy blog. Some of you knew from the Itsy Bitsy blog and others found me here, but whatever the source, I really really REALLY appreciate your support and encouragement. Craft blogging has literally opened my life to a whole new hobby, new people, like minded folks and a world of self satisfaction and I can't thank you all enough for helping me along in this venture.
But I'm going to try... :) Since my whole start to blogging began with Itsy Bitsy, I am giving away a whole set of my favorite Itsy Bitsy supplies to one super lucky recipient. It's CANDY TIME!!!
There are loads of flowers, embellishments, eyelets, die, embossing folder, glitter strips, tags, and much more. I've really tried to pack in as much as I could. Here's what you need to do to win the candy:
- Be a follower of my blog - Crafting Till the Crack of Dawn.
- Enter your name on the inLinkz gadget at the end of this post.
- Add the image above to the sidebar of your blog with the title - Sunehra's Candy.
- If you don't have a blog - Create one! It's super easy to do - just head over to blogger.com and get started.
- You have 3 weeks to enter the draw. I choose a winner on May Day - May 1st.
- Worldwide entries are welcome! I will ship anywhere!
While the candy is available for all, it will only go to ONE random winner. While that's great for that one person, it's kinda sad for everyone else. I wish I could send all my 100 followers a little thank you present and perhaps one day I can but for now, I want to appreciate the support of 8 particular blogger friends. They have all frequently visited my blog, left me some very encouraging words and all this gave me a great sense validation for my creations! It's not easy to find the time to do this, God knows I never find the time to do it so to each of them I am sending a small gift along with a HUGE bucket of gratitude - Thank you SO SO SO MUCH ladies for being so nice to me!
To Hussena of Quill and Punch Works, the masterful florist on paper, I am sending this gorgeous pack of ItsyBitsy flowers, I'm sure she will create something even more magical with it.
To Khush of SomethingSassy is the PP addict, what else could I sent a pack of DCVW papers - this is a 24 page stack and I know Khush will use it better than anyone!
For Pooja of Reusing with Quilling - I suppose I should've got her some quilling supplies but then I would love to see her work with these Itsy Bitsy Camden Cottage flowers.
For Dr. Sonia - of Cards, Crafts and School Projects, who has offered me so much advice and guidance over the last few months, I am sending this Itsy Bitsy Swirly Rose Die - I know you have the other swirly flower die so this one can add to your collection.
To little Miss Stamps A lot - Deepti Stephens of Catchy Crafts - I am sending you this Kaisercraft Stamp set. Have fun lil D - your stamped creations are DA BOMB!
To Snehal of Snehal's Creations - I am sending this fabulous 2 by 2 Cuttlebug Die set - it's great for tags and bookmarks and we all know Snehal just ROCKS the tags.
To Tanvi of Paper Fantasee I am sending my all time favorite embossing folder from Itsy Bitsy. It's a Damask design and I am eagerly awaiting Tanvi's totally original spin on it to inspire my next project.
Finally to Sindhu of Trapped in Craft, I am sending 2 packs of pearls - because she, like me, is addicted to pearls - love how she uses them and one can never have too many pearls on a project.
That wraps up this post. Once again thank you all for your support and looking forward to your continued encouragement as I progress in this wonderful world of Blogland. Hussena, Khush, Sindhu, Sonia, Pooja, Deepti, Tanvi and Snehal, please send me your postal address to firstname.lastname@example.org. I am already packing your parcels for despatch. You can also participate in the candy above, it's for everyone!
