Blogoversary Candy on the Scene!!!!!

As promised, I have my blogoversary candy posted. I can't believe I have been blogging for one year as of 7/25/11. I was a bit nervous about it but decided one day while on vacation I would get started and I'm still going strong and having a lot of fun.

If you would like to win, here is what you do as I am a bit curious as to what you like best about blogging. If you don't blog, just tell me what you like about visiting blogs. Just leave a comment (only one, please) and let me know. AND, follow the rules below. I would love to read your answers. There are so many things I like.....meeting new people from all over the world, learning new techniques and getting soooo many, wonderful ideas. Of course, I love the blog challenges and winning awards and prizes.  Who doesn't?  I could go on and on but I want to hear your thoughts.

Here is my list of goodies:
1-Tim Holtz Tissue Tape (symphony)
1-Tim Holtz Ruler Ribbon/36 inches
1-Spellbinders Nestabilitie-Long Classic Scalloped Rectangle
1-Stampabilities wooden stamp-Distressed Leaf
1-Stampabilities (clear stamps) Tree and Leaves
1-EK Success edger punch-scalloped scallop
1-Martha Stewart oak leaf punch
1-Martha Stewart 'happy birthday' deep edge punch
1-14 pc dimensional sticker (robots, etc.)

I have so much fun searching for these items to give away. I look for the items on sale so it doesn't cost an arm and leg.

  • One comment per person telling me what you like about blogging.If you don't blog, tell me why you like to visit blogs.  Your comment must be on my blog by 7/25/11 no later than 7:00 pm. CST
  • You do not have to become a follower (sure would love it, though).
  • Be sure to come back on 7/26/11 when I'll draw a name from the comments and post the winner! Either email me (from my profile) or leave a comment on my blog  that you're the winner and an address if you don't blog so I can get in touch with you for your mailing address.
  • This is not a rule but I would love if you put my candy on your side bar. 
Good luck to all!!!

Happy Blogoversary Benzi. Didn't think you had it in you, but here you are. I'm still a-scared. When you send me this blog candy that I know I will win, then I will start to try being brave!! LOL! I think blogs are wonderful and such an exciting place for stampers to connect. As you know, I'm unable to do a blog right now. Can't even keep up with SCS as it is; but, I absolutely love your blog and all tlhe sidebars and friends you have made. Way 2 go. My address when I win is: ..... LOL!

Pam~ said...

Congrats Brenda ... A great milestone! Probably more than posting to my own blog, I enjoy seeing what others have created! There are so many fabulous blogs out there and you are at the top of my list! I like to post my cards to share my passion and to hopefully becoming a better stamper. I want to make sure my cards are "presentable" before posting them.

Wonderful assortment of goodies!

Congratulations on your upcoming Blogoversary, Benzi!! Has it been a year already?? Well, time does fly when you're having fun!! And I think that, overall, is what I like best about blogging!! It's fun to meet like-minded papercrafting folks; it's fun to see what others are making; it's fun to learn new techniques and about new products; it's fun to be inspired and stumble upon great inspiration; it's fun to support others with comments and encouragement; it's fun having others look at and like what I make. It's FUN!

Julie said...

Happy Blogoversary Brenda!! I think the thing I like most about blogging is that I get to meet people like you who are so talented and so sweet! I love to see what my friends in Blogland are creating - it's inspiring!

A huge congrats on year 1 and look forward to seeing Year 2. I'll be away with no access to a computer so if I win, consider that I have replied - okay??!!!

Happy Blogsversary to you!
I love blogging, but have taken a short break from it. I like to show off my cards I make and tell people about sites that have candy! Like this! I do follow and this is on my sidebar too! I hope you come visit my site also.

Annelies said...

Happy Blogoversary Benzi! I like visiting blogs especially for the inspiration. Tutorials are of course great, but seeing all those beautiful cards is actually already enough. Thanks for a chance to win! Greetings from Belgium, Annelies

Bernie said...

Happy Blogoversary!! First of all I must say I have just spent the last hour poking around your brilliant blog. So my inspiration! So many lovely cards! I will become a follower just as soon as blogger let's me, seems to be gone for a walk at the moment. I've posted your candy on my sidebar.

I’ve only been blogging for six weeks and what strikes me about crafty bloggers is there generosity. They all seem so willing to share their ideas, techniques, tutorials, what they’ve learned about various products and even their craft supplies without asking a thing in return. I love being able to interact with like minded people from around the world and all the inspiration I get from others. I think the best thing about it all is it’s making me a better crafter.
Blessings Bernie

Happy Bloganniversary Benzi... I just saw this now.. Back on blog land after ages.. I missed it so much on my holiday...
Blogging has been a unique experience for me so far.. What started out as just a medium to interact with fellow crafters from all around the world became so much more.. It's become an integral part of my life wherein I learn so much from looking into people's blogs to learn something new or maybe stare at a piece which is so unique that makes me wonder how he/she managed to do it..
It holds no barriers and have managed to make some great friends from India as well as abroad.. I also recently met up with some bloggers in a particular region where I was holiaying and it wa sa truly novel experience.. Meeting those people who are part of your virtual life into your real life... amkes it all the more real..
Great candy and congratulations once again.. Have posted it on my side bar..Good Luck every one!!


Leanne said...

What I like most about blogging are my new virtual friends who make such sweet comments & that there's a lot of crafting inspiration in blogosphere.

Misu said...

Yasmin said...

Happy Blogoversary , Benzi ! Lovely candy and thanks for the chance to win.
I like blogging because it's how i met such talented people and made some real great friends too. It's like spending time with friends and sharing your a part of you with them. I also get to learn a lot from the different bloggers ...my greatest source of inspiration and ideas.

Lynne in NI said...

Gosh, has it only been a year? (...and I mean that in a nice way LOL!) I've loved blogging as I get to meet friends from all over the world and I've turned into a total challenge junkie with all the fab blogs on the go! Of course there's a 'down' side too ... seeing everyone's lovely crafty goodies and 'having' to get some myself!! Happy Blogaversary my friend ... here's to many more!

FerrellGraph-x said...

Happy Anniversary! That is fantastic, you've blogged for one year and have over 120 followers. Congratulations!
What I like the most about blogging about papercrafting is all the kind comments people leave for one another. It's such a happy, positive online community. To quote my son "it makes my heart happy" to read my feedback. The other best part is so much beautiful inspiration, tips and tricks.
So on that note thank you for leaving me such kind comments. It really made my day! :)
Kindest regards,
Jennifer Ferrell

wow...what awesome candy

As to blogging, I enjoy getting to know a bit more about my SCS friends when they share personal news.....AND of course, the inspiration and motivation is incredible

I just discovered this (as I have been MIA) and am entering in the last hour, so posting it to my blog wouldn't really help you out....but I would if it were earlier..
