I've been watching the little counter on my blog waiting for it to "turn" over 30,000. I had to re-set it October 1 (at least I think it was October 1), so it has been fun to watch. I decided that when it turned over 30,000, I'd do another "give away." I will be sending an assortment of patterned papers to some lucky stamper (some Stampin Up, some not). Leave a comment naming your favorite stamp company OTHER THAN Stampin Up! and why you like that line of stamps. I'll keep the contest open until Friday, January 5th, at 9:00 pm on the east coast of the US! (I can never remember if we are on or off daylight savings time!) and have my son pick a lucky winner. (Note: comments that just say I only love SU will NOT be eligible to win, but are welcome nonetheless! I'll announce the winner over the weekend. Other news: My mom was back in the hospital on New Year's Eve, but is home today. I was just feeling too pitiful sorry for myself to even post that news a few days ago. But, she's doing really well and hoping for a New York Giants victory this weekend. Go Giants! And, finally, a whole bunch of A2 Cuttlebug Embossing Folders came in the mail today! Woohoo!
