Contest is over! I will draw a winner Tuesday! :) Thanks all! Be sure to check this wonderful list and visit some new blogs!

Time to give some stuff away and discover some cool crafty blogs to boot! Here's the scoop. I have this cool pile of stuff; some Micheal's $1 spot clear stamps and blocks, a little Bella and a matching sentiment, cool punches, and the coveted Rhonna Farrer swirly bird stamp... I'm sure I will end up tossing some other stuff in there too... cause that's how I roll.

You could win this; and win an EXTRA swirly bird stamp for your favorite blogger!

All you have to do to get this cool stuff is leave a comment here... and let me know one (and only one) of your favorite crafty (and only crafty) blogs. If you win I will send you the cool pile of stuff shown here, and I will send your fave blogger an EXTRA swirly bird on your behalf! :)

Please enter one time only; and try your best to leave me a link to the blog you love so we can all go check it out! You have until Monday at Midnight (cst) to enter!

And if you really want to make me super duper happy (no bonus points, just love and admiration from me), vote for Craft Critique... we were nominated for a Blogger's Choice Award! Whoo hoo!

Anonymous said...

Hi Sarah,

Yikes! Just one? So hard!

All right if I had to pick, I'd say Allison at http://stampinwhenican.blogspot.com

I explained Allison to a non-stamping friend of mine as the "Queen of stampers and bloggers!"

She is super nice to list all the tutorials, cool sites, funny tidbits and blog candy in one place! On top of all that she finds time to make and post some cool cards!!!


sdaly said...

I really do think of your blog as one of my favorites! However, I think to pick another I'd list Kendra Giles
I am inspired by her great idea!

Carolyn S. said...

I love Kelly Sampsons blog Diaries of a Stamper. She is fantabulous! www.diariesofastamper.blogspot.com

Debi said...

Phyllis Strickland

Lynda said...

Scrappyant said...

HI Sarah,

Cool Blog candy. It is difficult to select a favorite blog. They are all great.
Choosing just one would be AmyR - http://prairiepaperandink.typepad.com/amyr/

kathy said...

Its hard to name my favorite blogs cuz i have so many Yours included and craft critique and stampin mama
and amusing musings and things I could go on and on but I would run out of room so Just visit my blog and you will see all my favorites.I promise I would give the birdie a good home....lol

Lynn said...

It's hard to choose just ONE. I'll have to say Taylored Expressions, and that's because I find myself CASE-ing her stuff all the time. There are so many I really like, though, including Sarah and the Stampstars! Great idea to have people list their favorites. I'm sure I will be adding lots of new blogs to my Google Reader.

Jen said...

Hey Sarah! Jen here (www.stampwithjen.typepad.com)... Lately I've been reading Michelle's blog at: http://www.inkartist.net/. Love the blog candy!

doverdi said...

What an awesome selection of goodies for some lucky person. A favorite blogger of mine is http://stampalicious.typepad.com/my_weblog/

There are so many great bloggers out there right now that it is so hard to pick just one. I do have your's in my reader so your also on my list of who to visit.

skyviewstamper said...

stampin_melissa said...

OMGodness! Just ONE???? How can I possibly chose just ONE????

*Breath deeply*


There are so many talented stampers out there and several with more personality than you can shake a stick at, but I guess if I had to pick one that I would like to meet in person it would be JanTink! Janine has talent in stampin' skillz and writing so her posts are just hilarious! Here's her blogsite: http://stampspaperscissors.typepad.com/stamps_paper_scissors/

Andrea said...

She makes the coolest cards and the best vegan food this side of the mississippi!



sandie c said...

I tend to subcribe to mainly stamping blogs and only a few craft only blogs so that makes answering your queston a lot easier. It has to be Craft Critique as I am learning new things about so many things.

I know anyone winning this blog candy will be thrilled as I would be. We don't get all the yummy stamps you lucky people over the big pond get. I hope that doesn't mean that I am out of the running to win all this yummy blog candy living overseas!! I had better wipe the drool off my keyboard and send this off to you!! LOL

primdollie said...

I wanted to say yours is a great crafty blog AND congrats my dear on getting to be a memeber of the Tuscan Rose Design team!!!!!! hurrah you deserve it!!!! awesome dear!!!!!! so happy for you!!!! big hugs Linda

Selina said...

Ooohhh...A tinkerbella - she's the one I really want!

I don't have a favorite blog I visit because there are so many, so I randomly chose one and it's:

Tisha said...

That bird is becoming quite the hot property - and I would love to have him too!! I would have to say that one of my favorites is Miss Sarah Bertolino's awesome blog:


She is incredibly creative and just one all-around cool chickie!!

Great question - I can't wait to go check out all the new blogs I found in the comments!! Thanks - Tisha

Mary Campbell said...

lorrietori said...

I am addicted to Taylor's blog found here hhttp://tayloredexpressions.blogspot.com/

Her blog is the very first one that I stumbled upon back in about September, 2006. I love it so much that it inspired me to start my own!!!! Great blog candy, thanks! Lorrie

Mary-Beth said...

Oh, I just found your blog through Alison's, who I also recently just discovered. Wonderful blog candy and that bird is to die for! LOL

I have tons of favourite blogs, all for different reasons but I think my absolute fav right now is daring cardmakers. Great ideas and challenges, very talented card makers.


I'm going to link to you so I can find you again to give your blog a good look over. Thank you.

Lynnette said...

Do you mean my favorite other than you? I guess so if you are sending an additional bird stamp her way. I think I'd have to say Heather Nichols (aka Pinefeather). Her work is fabulous and inspiring. JanTink is a very close second. She keeps me howling in laughter with her hilariously witty entries.

Susan H said...

Wow, a hard question because I like a lot of blogs, including yours of course. And right now I'm really enjoying http://tayloredexpression.blogspot.com/ for the nice cards and different projects! Thanks for asking!!

Tami said...

One of my fave blogs that I check everyday when I get home is Allison at http://stampinwhenican.blogspot.com

Dori F. said...

My recent favorite is Mish Mash...she has some wonderful ideas!!

Deb said...

Wow, what a tough question! I guess it would be Taylored Expressions. I love her style!


Kraftin' Kimmie said...

Lisa B said...

If I were to choose a blog right now, I'd say Kurtis' Stampin' Kub blog http://www.stampinkub.com/blog/index.php

I absolutely love the way he photographs his projects. He puts so much thought into laying out the photo, and the care he puts into everything really shows. Besides, a guy's point of view is nice in a world of crafty women sometimes!

Sharon in NE said...

What a great thing to ask for: I love discovering new blogs. This one is my favorite, just because the girl oozes with talent (not to mention humility, cough cough, jk) and especially because she honors the One who has blessed her.

Lisa said...

Hmm. One of my favorites is Sweet Miss Daisy's blog. http://sweetmissdaisy.typepad.com/ I love it because it has a little bit of everything. Awesome photography, cardmaking, sewing, etc. :)

Wow..I have so many favorite Blogs...but I am going to say:

Her cards are beautiful and she just happens to be related!

Patti said...

[sigh] so many blogs, so little time! I feel like I've already won a prize - just finding out about everybody's fave. I go to Gina K's everyday (do you need the url too?)

And love love love craft critique!

Hope I win! That swirly bird is great!

Amy said...

There are so many great craft blogs reflecting so many wonderfully diverse styles. I don't feel like I can single out a favorite on that front. So I'll pick Beate's:


because she seems to me to exemplify the primary value underlying why I craft -- generosity. She is generous with her time, her ideas, her gratitude, and her words of encouragement.

Susie said...

This is easy for me. Even though I adore Mish Mash and pine is here (among countless others) my absolute favorite is Cambria Turnbows "Stamp a Little Love Baby!". Not only is she wonderfully talented but the energy she brings to her blog just makes me feel good!

Craft Critique ROCKS !! It's a daily read for me!

Nadine said...

There are so many wonderful blogs out there but I must say my ultimate favorite is Duckwaddle Quack. Her blog is http://quackingcreations.blogspot.com. I have always been inspired by her style and just LOVE her cards.
Her sense of colors and her layering constantly amaze me.
This is great candy & I just love the bird. Thanks for sharing.

Sarah said...

This is one of the best ...


Linda and her stamps ROCK!!!

Thanks for the generous offering!

Scapped Princess said...

this isn't a blog but I wanted to share this awesome site with you.
It's worth checking out.

Corvus said...

That is such a hard question! I keep up with over a hundred crafty blogs in addition to writing my own.

For today I'm going to vote yarnstom. http://www.yarnstorm.blogs.com/

She has such a wonderful sense of color and a way of bringing creativity into everyday life that I love.

Trish D said...

Wow, how generous!! And as for a favorite craft blog - I'd have to say http://theartfulmama.blogspot.com/ because I love the way she shares her experiments, and her style is great!

Gina Wrona said...

Wow, how awesomely generous of you.

I would have to vote for more than 1 blog, but my first one would be my demonstrator, Dawn Griffith.


I have like close to 100 subscriptions to all the blogs I like so I won't take up the rest of this post with all of them, but you get the idea, KWiM?
