A great giveaway - TodaysMama & Provo Craft...

I just read about a great giveaway on one of my favorite blogs...  This woman is awesome!!!  You must check out her blog! 

For info about the giveaway please go to TodaysMama to find out more details and the rules! 

Here is my entry to win all that cool stuff:

Mama’s Holiday Wish List Meme
TodaysMama and Provo Craft are giving away a sleighful of gifts this holiday season and to enter I’m sharing this meme with you.
1. What 5 items are on your holiday wish list this year?
a. Complete my craft room
b. Continue exercising
c. Watch "Four Christmases"
d. Play with my Cricut more
e. Purge some things
*I realize this is more of a To Do list but they are wishes!!! 

2. What is your favorite handmade gift you have received?
In recent years, I want to say it was a fleece blanket that my fiance's mother made me.  It was pink and black.  :) 

3. What handmade gift have you always wanted to tackle?
Knitting a symmetrical scarf would be a good start!

4. What was the best Christmas gift you received as a child?
Hmmm...I can't remember....maybe my little brother--he was born on December 27. 
5. What items are on your kid’s wish list this year?
We don't have human children, but my fiance and I do have a Chihuahua and a Boston Terrier.  My guess is their wishes are to not be forced to go out in the snow and do their "business."

6. What is your favorite holiday food?
A Mexican stew...Pozole (Google it)!  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this stuff! 

7. What will you be hand-crafting for the holidays?
If I can get my craft room together it will be cards.

One that doesn't put me to sleep!  Ok, ok...It's A Wonderful Life.

Mariah Carey's holiday songs...and Rascal Flatts' holiday songs.

Eating!...Pozole, of course!

Even more blog candy @ "I Love Pretty Paper" blog

This is a pretty nifty blog candy RAK b/c you get to choose from one of three (3!) prizes...I think I would choose the home-made cards that she made. They are very pretty and original! My skills aren't at that level yet. If I won them I think I'd donate them as a drawing/raffle donation to the Tenaya Guild chapter back home in California. Every year they have a Christmas/holiday fundraiser to raise funds for Children's Hospital of Central California (Fresno, CA). Check out her cards here:

More blog candy at Leanne's blog "Created by Leanne"...

Blog candy is the best candy---and it's sugar-free!!! Leanne is offering up some really cute crafting paper...check it out here: Sign-up to follow her blog and enter for a chance to win 2 (two!) paper packs!!

Blog candy at Malisa's Ya Buggin' Me blog!

Oh my gravy, oh my gravy! I was too excited when I learned that Malisa is offering blog candy...she's giving us the chance to win a list full of craft supplies. One of the items is the Stampin' Up! Top Note's to DIE for! I've seen some really cute projects made with this die and I so want it. The Top Note Die itself would be blog candy enough for me! Head over to her blog for a chance to win!!!

Graduation bouquet for Fallon

I recently created a graduation bouquet for my friend and co-worker Fallon.  She graduated with her bachelors degree.  I love this girl.   She laughs at all my quirky comments and jokes.  We met in November 2007 at our job at a local college--we started within two weeks of each other.  We now work in another department at the college.  It just happened to work out that way and I'm glad it did because she's my girl!  I made the graduation bouquet using my Cricut Expression.  It's my 3rd project using my Cricut.  I get better with each project!  Fallon LOVES shoes and fashion so I wanted to make her bouquet with shoes.  I got the bouquet idea from the Cricut messageboard (MB) members.  I also got the "Congrat{shoe}lations!" idea off the MB.  Enjoy the pictures!  And leave comments!
