I have to choose between the two? Sigh...I'm a girl so I choose pink LOL!

I don't do any other crafts any more really. I used to cross stitch but I hate how long it takes to get real results.

The only other "crafty" thing I do than papercrafting is I like to play with cake decorating... but really, I'm not all that great at it!

Barb S said...

SO many blogs....so little time..(to check them all out!!)lol. I pick BLUE and other crafts I do are gardening, cross stitching, baking and playing with grandkids!!
THanks for a chance at the "candy"

desiree kuhnlein said...

I love crafts.... mostly stamping, scrapbooking, cross stitch and quilting. Since joining SU I hardly have any time for the others but that is ok.
I choose blue.... I am curious about those stamps...

Nice blog

Debby said...

I could never choose between the two. Both are great.
I do all kinds of crafts, it is great therapy. I am a rubber stamper, scrapbooking, quilter, counted cross stitch and crocheting and last but not least tole painting and oh paper piecing too. I love to keep my hands busy.

Ellen said...

I like to knit - taught myself last year from downloaded directions. Knitting comes into play when I need something to do and can't bring all my stamping and scrapping mess (like car trips).

I'd like to be in the running for the BLUE please!

Sherri R said...

Sarah, I do paper crafts, both scrapbooking and card making. I love to crochet (that is a new hobby of mine), cross stitch, I have an embroidery machine and use it some. I used to love to sew, but have 3 kids and little time to do much of anyone. I love to garden and love to just spend time with my family.

I would have to say for a color just surprise me. I love surprises :)

Blessings to you, Sherri

Trish Brunkhart said...

Hi This is Trish from Stampinupfriends. I am blurfer..I love surfing blogs...LOL.

I also knit and do scrapbooking and other paper arts besides rubber stamping.

Basket number one has rubons and I am challenged by them,..if I win some I promise to learn to do it FINALLY!!
Thanks for a great place to visit.
Trish

Dawn aka TreasureOiler said...

ohhhhhhh what fun!

I love the PINK one!

I LOVE crafting anything and everything to give it away to my friends! I don't keep much for myself anymore...lol

Baking is probably the only other thing that I do with my free time. I have to SQUEEZE that in though!

Phyllis Zart said...

How cute is that pink ribbon. Believe it or not, I started working on a 6x6 quote book last weekend and the colors are pink, green and brown. That ribbon would be perfect for it! I used to sew (when my 25yr.old daughter was younger), now I am a paper junkie...stamping, scrapping, creating books and 3-D items. It is such a disease, but oh so much fun. I guess I have always into paper...coloring books and paper dolls! Did I mention I stamped all the wedding invitations for my daughter, her thank you's for 2 showers and the wedding gifts and part of the favors for the wedding. Soon I will start working on scrapping some wedding photos. It is very nice of you to have 'give aways' that are so nice! Even if I don't win, thanks!!

Jan Scholl said...

Surprises surprises. I cannot choose. if I win, you much surprise me.

I like lots of crafts including stamping, quilting (i am making a quilt from the shirts I get from running races-sewing by hand only), all sorts of sewing especially Halloween costumes, just learning to knit and have crocheted for years. I like painting my clay pots for the garden in funny ways-we jokingly painted one saying the weed pot-not thinking some would find that offensive. I used to do cross stitch but got burned out on it and recently donated all those supplies to the local HOspice and if I get time, love traditional needlepoint.

diane mcvey said...

Wow, so awesome! I love my flowers, that is my hobby in Spring and Summer. I plant lots of containers for my patio and landscaping. . .they are just so pretty! If I had to choose, I would choose PINK! No particular reason! Thanks so much for the generous offering!

Anonymous said...

Hello, I am from Modesto,California, my name is Christina Amador and I love to stamp and scrapbook...I like many other crafts, I like to sew, or shall I say, I like to dream of sewing...I also like to paint, furniture is what I like to do, make faux finishes on walls, if this counts...I really enjoy boating, and I just love to collect little trinkets to use them on who knows what...just gotta have them. I guess ou could say I am a little bit of a pack rat!!! But now they're organized!
If I am chosen a winner, I would like the BLUE basket please...thank you

Anonymous said...

I have to admit that I haven't done much crafting lately because it's too difficult to get to any of my supplies but I love all kinds of crafts. Years ago I was a consultant for a company called Creative Stitchery (or something like that...can't remember the exact name) where we taught people needlecrafts like candlewicking, crewel embroidery etc.
Over the years I have done sewing, candlemaking, dabbled in knitting & crochet, plastic canvas, cross stitching. I tried to learn tatting but that was a bomb!
My main love is rubber stamping.
I prefer the pink basket but both look great!

Kristine Reynolds said...

Mostly I just love papercrafting. Stamping & scrapbooking. When I am not doing that I enjoy camping with my family. If I win the candy, blue candy please! Thanks!

Andrea said...

Hi, I am from Australia so dont know if you will post here. I love paper crafts and am an SU demo but also teach all other kinds of card making. I am also a folk artist but have painted so many things over the years, I am taking a break from that for now. I also love to browse the net to see other peoples creations.
take care
Andrea

Nancy Towry said...

My choice is pink...girly pink!

I used to do lots of cross stitch and then I had kids and instant gratification became a necessity. A friend got me addicted to stamping. I'm now in the process of convincing my husband to give up his workshop for my craft room.

I like making all kinds of things with my stamps and patterned paper. Cards are the main thing but I'm always game for new ideas.

Shelby said...

It is so nice that there are some of you who give Blog candy. I don't have a blog or website. But I do love to surf the internet and love reading all the blogs I come across. My main hobby for the past four years has been stampin up. I am basiclly a hobby demo. I love to stamp and scrapbook. Not great at the scrapbooking but I am learning. Recently started doing altered items. What fun. I have (in the past) knitted, crocheted, painted, and sewed. LIke someone else said, I tried to tat but no luck. i have also done cross stitching, plastic canvas and other needlearts. Making latchhoot rugs pictures etc. I think I have tried just about everything, but stamping has been the most fun although not the most profitable. I love making things but have very little to show for it. I usually give things I make to someone else. Pink is first choice. But blue is good too. And thank you.

Mary Campbell said...

I love crafts. I quilt, crochet, machine embroider, making purches, sewing, painting, and gardening. I would choose the blue basket mostly because my first grandchild was born this week and he is a boy. Thanks, Mary

Kay Vinson said...

Hi Sarah,

I am Kay and I live in sunny Sydney, Australia. I have been sewing and crafting almost my whole life. I love doing things with my hands and over the years I have knitted, crotcheted, done folk art even cut my own wood. In 2000 the scrapbook bug bit and I was hooked. That led me into rubber stamping and that is my current passion. Should I win, and you don't mind shipping to Australia, then I would love the blue basket please.

Allison said...

Hi there...I like the blue one but I am really easy (hey, candy is candy, right?). Hmm, besides papercrafts, I knit and garden. Knitting has fallen by the wayside but my gardening is seriously going to interfere with my blogging...grins!

Michelle said...

I am also a quilter, scrapbooker, stamper. I also enjoy making soaps occassionally with my twin 5 year old girls. Because I have girls, I'd have to say that pink is my choice.

Anonymous said...

Paper crafting is the end all and be all for me. I love to alter anything that sits still....making eggs with the flower punches right now. Love to Scrapbook.

I have 3 grandgirls, so I guess I say Pink. Thanks so much.

Kelly Sampson AKA Emmiestamps said...

I love the pink one!! But the blue is good too! Other then crafting, hmmmm it would have to be shopping!

Rochelle W said...

Ok, first of all, I love your cursor. Very cool. Second, if I had a choice, I like the blue basket. Now for a little about me.
I am a stay at home mom who loves to craft. I seem to make "things" way more than cards. I just love to make things for other people rather than for myself. My other hobby is photography. I hope someday to own my own photography studio. I love love love taking pictures and developing them. I took some classes at the college last year to learn how. It is so cool. I also love to bake but my husband made me stop when he gained a few pounds. LOL
Thanks for the chance to win this fun blog candy.
P.S. Super cool blog too.

Randell said...

First of all I am loving your cards!! I have actually saved a few of the images from SU!Yahoo group. I love painting, watercolor and acrylics, that is actually how I got lured into scrapping/stamping is by the idea of incorporating stamps into my paintings, like one of my favourite artists Grant Leier. I love the blue basket ,of course with the stamp set, they are both wat to generous though! Randell

Dawn Mercedes said...

Hmmmmmmmm...I enjoy sewing a big. I do have a quilt that really needs some attention...or it'll be more like rags.

I love stamping with my 6 year old daughter. We ask each other questions about "what color should I add" or do you like this embellishment?

I also like stamping with my mom via speaker phone. Although we live too far to stamp with each other, technology helps us out a lot!

Leah said...

how fun! I think I like the pink one best ;) I have always been pretty crafty. I have been stamping for about 5 years.. I have less than half a dozen scrapbook pages done too.. LOL! but I really want to get into it. Mostly I make cards & am venturing into other 3D items. I have cross stitched for a long time, but I have nothing to show for it since I create things to give away :) My mother in law is a wonderful quilter & she is teaching me the craft - we are quilting a bed spread for my husband's & my bed (so pretty!) TFS!

Maria Pane said...

Hi!
That is my birthday on March 30th!
I love to craft!
I am a stamper and crafter
and my favorite thing to do
is to get together with friends
and make cards and scrapbook.
Way too much fun!
Maria Pane

Alex said...

Oooh yummy, um if I had to choose I think I would choose the blue corner!!! My favourite thing to do is to stamp and watercolour, also I lovvvvve to read other peoples crafting blogs, thanks for a fantastic blog candy opportunity

Terry Molineux said...

My funest craft is STAMPING of course but then again SCRAPBOOKING! Aren't they one in the same???? I love to be taught how to do anything....I love learning so if there is anyone out there with a project I love to learn...I buy the product, print out the directions and wait until my UPLINE teaches it...no really I am serious...I am direction challenged!!!!

I would really love to win the blue!!! Thanks for letting me play..

doverdi said...

I used to do tole painting and gave it up several years ago when the market was flooded with tole painters. Then in 2004, I found scrapbooking and love it. Now I seem to have gotten into all types of papercrafts - stamping, paper embroidery, spirelli, paper pricking. I love to learn new things and love making mini books. I'm also an avid reader which I take time to squeeze it in.
Love your blog candy and I think I would chose BLUE, since I am still working on my son's scrapbook blue stuff would come in handy.

L8ybug2 said...

Other crafts I do are scrapbooking and sewing. Now, pick a color, pink, blue, pink, blue, hmmmmmm BLUE.......

Patsy Turner said...

I think I will choose Pink!! I am new to this, and have been watching these blog candy give aways. They look like so much fun. I work full time as an operating room nurse, but I relax with card making, scrapbooking, crocheting, and I make pottery. I also have a sourdough starter going, that I mess with every 2-3 day. Have a great day!!

Wendy said...

Ooh wonderful blog candy! Do I *have* to choose? I love both! But for the sake of choosing, I will say Blue. Other hobbies include... Beading... Essential Oils and reading which I don't do enough of. Thanks!
Wendy

loislane said...

How Generous!!! Let's see, besides paper crafts (stamping, scrapbooking) I really don't do any other crafts right now. In the past I have tole painted, crocheted, cross stitched..but right now, mostly card making. I also like to read and sing!

Bonnie Weiss said...

Aside from stamping and scrapping, I like to crochet (scarves). I buy the wool on sale; crochet them up; keep them for the next Christmas and parcel them up as gifts. Who doesn't like something made by hand and given from the heart?
Pink or blue basket - either one would be appeciated.

Cora said...

I would love a crack at the blue basket.
I am totally addicted to stamping cards and other creations. I also do some scrapbooking, needlework, crochet and other "crafty" things.
Other than crafts, I love to work in my garden, go camping, and just generally spend time outdoors!

Donna Grady said...

I love your blog and just got started recently subbing to them...I would choose the pink gift.

I have been stamping since 1996 when my one and only daughter was 5yrs old. She is 15 now.

I am a single mom living in Flordia.

I have recently started beading and making jewelry too. I have needlpointed, scrapbooked, macrame'd, mixed media art, you name it. Love all crafts.

Now into cooking and taking cooking classes.

Love my stamping the best though and have a room to prove it.

I get together monthly with my friends to be creative...

Thanks for your contest.

I am from Nebraska and love to stamp, scrapbook, read and go for long walks. I have never received blog candy so it really makes no difference to me which one I would receive if I were the winner. Maybe the first one if I have to choose. I loved reading your blog!

Sheri Danielson

Susanna said...

Hmmm. Hobbies that aren't paper crafting? Do I have to actually finish the projects? I have 1/2 needlepoint laying around. I also have 3/4 of a Suduko Puzzle book around here somewhere. Mostly, I like to paper craft. There is tremendous joy in being able to finish something in pretty short order.

I like the blue basket, but both are lovely. Thanks for sharing your great blog!

Judy said...

What fun! I would love the Pink one! Another craft I enjoy would be scrapbooking, of course.
Other crafts, are the school projects with the kids.
Thanks for the fun treats!
Love Candy!

Patty said...

Well, I love to make cards. Started out stamping only, but now there's so much good stuff out there, started to migrate to non-stamping cards as well.

Meantime, other than papercraft, I was crazy w/ the Altoid Tins for a while too.

Other than papercrafting, I also love to Swing Dance, and have taught for 7 years. Talking about keeping a girl moving. If I have to pick between the two, I would pick blue. :) Thanks for the candy!

Cheryl said...

So hard to choose, but I would choose the pink and that is only because I have never used the clear stamps at all. I love to stamp, scrapbook, and I have made baskets. I love any kind of crafts actually.
Thanks for this awesome blog candy. Very cute and clever.
Cheryl

Korin Carter said...

I enjoy scrapbooking, have fallen in love with card making, sew, doe blackwork, quilting and have begun beading. In addition to my inside hobbies, my family and friends dress up the weekends and take a step back in time as historical reenactors. Our favorites are pirates, AARrrgh!
I would prefer blue as it is the color of the open sea.

Julie said...

What great candy!! I think I like the blue! As for your question, I love the sew and smock (I just don't do it too often cause I have no place to have my machine up all the time). I also started knitting a couple years ago and really enjoy that!

Terri said...

I love art, all kinds. Paper arts is another outlet in which I can be creative. LOVE IT. I also love to hang out with my teenager, funny but we have a great relationship! Great friends. I also love music. I am not great at creating it anymore, but love to listen and watch people performing! This blog candy is awesome. I would pick the blue basket! Thanks!!!!!

Oh boy, choices! I choose Blue! I do love papercrafting as well but I also love to cook and I play the piano as a stress reliever.(ok, well I have to practice too, because I play the keyboard at church!)

Id let you choose wich basket i would win becasue they both look soooooooo yummy!!! TFS!

Janet B said...

I love both the baskets--You did a great job making them. I'd love to win either, although the blue one with the stickles in it looks interesting.I've never tried stickles before.

I love to papercraft and I usually make cards and altered items. I don't remember the last time I did a scrapbook page.

I am the chair of a charity scrapbook convention here in Canada--that's taking up loads of my time.

Other crafty things I like to do? I love to quilt. Also cross stitch. Reading too is a favorite hobby.

Thanks for sharing the candy. Love your blog.

Janet B

Deb said...

I choose the blue basket. My love right now is making cards, but I have also been known to do wood painting and scrapbooking. I also love to ski, hike, run and basically do anything outdoors.

Thanks for the incredible *candy* offer!

Karin H said...

I love pink so that basket would be my choice if I'm so lucky be a winner!

Paper crafts are my favorite, with stamping at the top of the list. I wish I could make more time for scrapbooking though. I also do a little knitting and I love to bake, used to do cake decorating but it was too time consuming.

Kathy said...

I choose blue, but it was a hard decision! As far as other crafts, I enjoy photography, cross stitching, scrapbooking, gardening and I'm learning to crochet.

Love your blog! Thanks for sharing!

Kathy

shelley davis said...

What a wonderful idea! I love pink.
I craft everything. Knit, crochet, mosaic, paint. One of my favorite things to do is play tool girl. I put in my garbage disposal, changed all the light fixtures in my house, paint. And lastly I love to garden. I love my roses and hygrangias.
Shelley

PinkBumblebees said...

I love crafting, I always have! I currently scrapbook, stamp, and make rosaries. In my past I have also been obsessed with crochet and counted cross stitch. I am just not happy unless I am creating something. ;)

I really like your blog, your stamping style is similar to mine. ;)

I like both treats, but if I have to pick, I like Pink. ;)

Love your blog! Enjoy the quilts at the bottom also. I'd love a chance at the blue, I think.... it is so hard!!

Hi, I am Denise, I am new to stampin up and love it! I also like to sew, but never seem to have the time for that. With Stamping I can pull out a few things at a time.
I enjoy your blog and seeing all the great ideas.
I would love to have the chance at the pink basket.
thanks for a great blog and I love anything new! Get those creative juices flowing.

Beth Eldridge said...

I love to scrapbook & make cards. I used to Tole paint & do counted cross stitch, but any time I go into any craft I go whole hog.
I would like the pink basket if I am the winner.Beth Eldridge

~*Dawn*~ said...

Hi Sarah! I just found your blog!! Awesome blog candy. I am a mom to twin girls who are turning two on Sunday so I barely have time to craft, but I love to scrapbook, make cards and alter stuff! I pick pink (go figure!).

Gina Wrona said...

mmmmmmmmm they both look delicious, but I would lean towards the pink one if I had to choose.

Before stampin'up came into my life, sometimes I would crochet baby blankets, booties, sweaters, bonnets, etc.

And of course, work outside in my many flower beds.

bethtrue said...

Hi Sarah - what a fun give-away. Too hard to choose but I guess i'd go with blue since I have a son (and as he always says "Pink is for Girls") - where does he get these ideas?!

Anyway - my other crafty thing is that i have done cross-stitch but not in a long long time. I would like to take up knitting but guess I feel like I don't have enough time for the papercrafts already, let alone a new hobby!

Have a great day!

Beth (mommy to a busy 3 1/2 year old)

Peggy Maier said...

Hi, great giveaway! Thanks!!!
I love making cards!...other than that I do crochet, cross-stitch & embroidery. (of course these other things have fallen by the wayside since I became a papercrafter) Also love to make desserts which makes my husband real happy! If I had to choose between the two baskets, I'd choose the pink one.

jeanna said...

oooh oooh ooh Basket 2 basket 2! 2 Boys here - definitely love basket 2! In addition to papercrafting I've done almost everything else (haven't most of us) crochet, cross stitch, latch hook, sewing, painting.....thanks for the great blog candy

Heather said...

My choice is Blue

My other "crafts" are gardening and preserving the foods I grow. Cooking, and a little bit of crocheting.

Thanks for the oppportunity.

I love the ribbon in the pink basket!!!

I love your stamping projects, but I'm in awe of your quilts.
I, too, have made several quilts. My favorite is a "bug jar" quilt.Keep up the wonderful work.eajjmv

Peggy said...

I dabble in knitting and cross-stitch. I would love to be able to embroider napkins or things like that!

Thanks for this great candy-- 2 great choices! I will choose BLUE!

Debbie said...

I love to learn any craft. I have to be careful and not watch Carol Duvall or else I buy all the products and have no where to store them.:) I have gotten down to 3. Stampin, Scrapbooking and sewing. Of course I dabble in whatever. I would choose the blue candy because of the stamps:) but if I win I would take either.

Love your blog cool cards.

Cher said...

Love your blog!
I pick blue and I love to do wood crafts for my garden.

Amber H said...

I also decorate cakes (mainly for my kids), sew for my kids and dabble in photography (which than turns into scrapbooking!). I use to cross stitch and smocking.

I'd like to be in the pink drawing.

Sherry Yeager said...

I am new to the group, but I make cards and baskets. I send cards to Kieki Cards and kids on Aloha Cards.. I love learning new things and have been happy with the group. Every blog I go to is so informative and helpful. I would love any of the baskets.

Love your blog......I would have to say I like the blue basket. The other crafts I do are sewing, crocheting and counted cross stitch. TFS :o)

Jackie said...

Put me down for the pink one, please :-) There are things other than papercrafts?? Who knew? I do like to read, watch movies and take photographs once in a while. We moved to NC from Florida 3 years ago and I used to love the beach, well, I still do but it's a bit farther away now. We really like living up here though - the weather suits us better and I have made some good friends, both stamping and otherwise. My children are all grown so it's just myself, hubby and the most precious kitty in the world (who loves him better than she does me!).

Susan said...

Rubberstamping, scrapbooking, and taking pictures are the most fun! And I would pick the blue one!!

Nancy said...

Hello,
I'd pick the pink. :-) I'm a paper crafter for the most part. I also like to sew and sing.

gretchenhs said...

Your blog is so nice! Thanks for sharing your talents with everyone!

I enjoy photography, animals, and my 3 year old baby girl. I also love to cross stitch and build doll houses.

I like the blue basket, but only because it has things I've never had a chance to try, like Stickles!

Shop girl said...

Hummmmm I pick Pink because of my 3 Grand-daughters. I am a hand quilter, card maker, scrapbooker,
and now a album maker, I am trying ATC's right now. I am a crafter, and I am always looking for something new to do. I love to shop for paper, and I am trying to make background paper of my own.
Come visit me when you get a minute...

Anonymous said...

Besides papercrafting cards and all the other great projects you can make with stamps, I love to sew, I have made a lot of things for my granddaughters sewing "PINK" after having had boys! Made my granddaughters first communion dress, Easter outfits, I would love to start working on a quilt!
I think I would like the blue that has the Stickles, everytime I check the local Scrapbook stores they are out!
Thanks for the chance at the blog candy.

sunshinevickie said...

Thanks for offering this "candy"!
My main thing to do is Paper crafting, but I also dabble in one-step painting, sewing - love to make things with fabric yo-yo's, and making things to decorate my home.
I think I'd like the pink!

Debbie Schubauer said...

Love your blog! I choose pink. Other hobbies I have are tole painting - haven't done much since I started stamping. Right now I'm making snowmen out of a landscaping block that has kind of a snowman shape - head and body. Also have a bunch of wooden eggs to paint. Also like walking my dog and baking

I love the pink basket! A little bit about me...I love to garden and to can my own veggies and fruit. I also love orchids. I love to travel to tropical places too.
Cheryl Kelly-Van Domelen

Jackie said...

I don't know where to begin, I honestly have tried almost every craft out there at some point in time. I scrapbook and card make as well as cross stictch, quilting, candle making, floral arranging, make jewlery, paint, big into photography...I think that is all I can think of, but you get the point..oh wait and I make candy too!

Anonymous said...

Ooooh, I love the pink- the ribbons are lovely!
My first and foremost craft work is the creation of my four daughters (a never-ending work in progress!), and I also rubber stamp and scrapbook.
I love to embroider, both cross stitch and other styles of embroidery.
I used to sew much more than I do now (now it's limited to taking up hems on pants!), and I also knit when I get the time.
I taught mt two youngest to finger knit last weekend, now I have them clamouring for me to get them more yarn! The 10 year old has her sights set on a record with over 30 metres done already!
Thanks for offering the blog candy, it's so cool!

My husband and I enjoy going on "adventures" where we go for a day drive in some direction and see what is out there in the world.

Forgot to add that I love both baskets but I'd pink the pink one.

Joy said...

I like to scrapbook. I love to bake, but I also love to eat what I bake, so I'm trying to control that a little. Beading is fun....I think I would go for the pink basket. thank you!

Regina Davis said...

When I'm not stampin', I'm usually outside in the garden. (davisfamily4930@comcast.net)

Linda Shaw said...

My pick is blue. Besides card creating, I enjoy reading craft books & magazines. I also am a collector of beautiful fabrics that I plan to use when I take up sewing again. (which will probably be NEVER:) Linda SS

Lesley said...

I do counted cross stitch, crocheting, knitting, jewelry making and I love to read!

My name is Lesley Clark.

I'd love to have the pink basket.

MiMi's Place said...

I enjoy many different crafts. If it looks like something I would enjoy I am all over it. I have quite the collection of craft related supplies that I may need some day.

I enjoy crocheting, reading, gardening, and playing with my three granddaughters. I am even teaching the oldest (3 years old) to stamp and scrapbook. She is amazing. Her eye for color is great, and she loves to stamp cards for her friends.

The one and only craft that I totally could not learn was tatting. My 90 year old neighbor tried tirelessly to teach me the art of tatting. She had a motto "Never Give Up ~ Ever" I am sorry to say she even dubbed me a failure at tatting!

Since you are giving us a chance to pick between either of the colors I will go with Pink.

Thanks for such a chance to pick up some Sweet Blog Candy~

Michelle said...

Awesome!

My name is Michelle, I live in Calgary, AB CANADA...I started Scrapbooking, papercrafting about 4 years ago, I'm an SU Demo. I love reality TV and I started blogging in November 2006!

I love the blue basket!

Natasha said...

Wow! Exciting giveaway!

Other crafty pursuits of mine... drawing portraits, painting (a true rarity now, with all my stamping stuff, there's no space to dedicate to oil painting), I also like to write, in my journal, stories, whatever.

I'm a sucker for all things BLUE :D

Adelina said...

wow - that blue one looks amazing! They both look great, but I think I'd like the blue one.

I don't do any other crafts, but I have taken up gardening. I really enjoy it!

Hi! I am an elementary teacher and a mother to 4! I love many types of crafts, however, papercrafting is my favorite. I also enjoy reading, pulling weeds (ok- not really!), gardening, baking, and running my kiddos everywhere! If I had to choose one of your adorable baskets I would pick the pink one.
Thank you for sharing your art work here as an inspiration for others!

I have been a crafter most of my life.But once I discovered SU I knew I had a way to support my habit. I also started knitting and love it too! A girl can never have too much yarn or stamps!

And I would be THRILLED with either basket~

Love your blog!

Since pink is my favorite color, I would have to chose the pink basket. Besides my first love of making cards, I love to alter almost anything. I also crochet, something I learned years ago from my mother. I also keep two separate bags of craft items to create with my grandchildren on my visits. They really look forward to that.

I have always been a pink girl, so my pick is the pink box. I also do ribbon embroidery, crocheting, and counted cross stitch, plus other various crafts.

Your blog candy looks so fun! If I had to choose I would say the blue one!

I love to crochet, knit, sew (quilts mainly), bake as well as stamping and the occasional scrapbook page.

I'm a university student who lives away from home while attending school and travels back home for the summer, so I don't have the time or space for all the crafts and hobbies I'd like to do. Lately I've been papercrafting (although I haven't gotten into stamping) and knitting, although in the past I've done some other things like tatting, beading, and chip carving. I also like to read, cook, and dance (mostly by myself).

I'd like to put my name in for the blue prize, please.

Hi~ *waves* My name is Wendy Hawkinson and I'm from the the land of cheesecurds and beer...yep, Wisconsin. There's not a lot of anything around here so we learn to amuse ourselves. I love stamping and scrapbooking, but am also a wannabe quilter. I'm not very good because I detest ironing. I'm addicted to online scrabble. LOL.. I should be smarter than what I am. My newest hobby; however, is building a house. I'd rather be stamping!

I really like both baskets ... you choose. :)

Carol Lavrich said...

Love the candy. I choose blue. I also do metalsmithing and jewelry making.

Enjoy your spring break!!!!

Lynn said...

I choose PINK! I don't do any other crafty things besides scrapbooking and stamping. I used to cross stitch, but I grew out of that. I also used to knit scarves, but I was always making mistakes and just didn't enjoy it. I just stick to my paper crafts now.

Jackie said...

I have always loved my crafts, besides stamping, scrapbooking, jewerly making and sewing I love to crochet baby blankets and scarfs. Right now I am hooked with altering anything I can get my hands ons. From tin to chipboards to wooden purses. In my younger world I even done the string and nail art.
Since I have 5 grandsons, no girls the blue will do nicely/

Betty B said...

Hi,
My newest (and favorite of all time)hobby is staring at the face of my first grandchild, Cheyanne Elizabeth, 11 days old. How I will return to work next week after spending two weeks with her is difficult to comprehend, but I need to work to buy those adorable outfits, lol.
Pre-Cheyanne, I am an avid SU fan and will become a demo in the fall when my new home is completed and I have room for my crafts. I also cross stitch and plan to learn quilting very soon. I recently did some mosaics and will continue with that also.
Recent projects included doing 30 invites to my daughter's baby shower and then doing her thank you card for that. We just finished 50 birth announcements and now I have to get started on my younger daughter's wedding invitations, I am playing with a couple of designs, but haven't tweeked it yet.

Choosing is hard, so I will leave that in your hands, should I be a winner....but I am already a winner in the game of life, I got that precious gift 11 days ago.

The Bella's are the BEST....
I also do stained glass art.

Amy said...

I really enjoy checking in on you! What fun candy and what a hard choice. I think I will go for blue since i have never tried stickles.

In my spare time (hah!), well besides stampin' I love watching movies with my husband or playing with my one year old. I also sing with my church's praise team and that is fun too.

Thanks for being so generous!

Hi Sarah, what a great blog you have-went to my fav's! I love stamping and dabble in scrapping. I used to do more cross-stitching. I love to do anything with my 2 sisters!! Unfortunately, they are 16 hrs away:-( I love going to scrap/stamp conventions-one next month! I pick blue-love clear stamps!

Heather Leech said...

Great blog candy!! I like to garden when I can. I used to do alot of cross stitching, and will get back to it one day.
If I had to choose between the 2 fabulous prizes, I'd probably go with the pink as I love the ribbon. But both are great!!!

I LOVE BAKING. TO MAKE IT EVEN MORE FUN MY 5 YEAR OLD SON LOVES TO BAKE WITH ME.I SAY I PICK BLUE FOR MY BOY

>>>commenting from east central coast of Florida

I have enjoyed checking out your blog every few days. Your card ideas are very similar to my own tastes.

I started in papercrafting/cardmaking/stamping from scrapbooking; started in scrapbooking from genealogy.

The blog "candy" is a great idea. I'd chose blue. :)

My only other hobby is Quad riding with the hubby & The Boys!! So much fun but so dirty.............Bsnboys@msn.com
Thanks for the oppourtunity

Andrea Matteson said...

Wow! Great Baskets! I like the blue one best! Other than rubber stamping and scrapbooking, my favorite craft is crocheting (very relaxing - except when I screw up! I usually crochet in the evening while watching TV with my DH). I have, however, recently begun altering. I also used to (but don't have time for it anymore) make homemade soaps.

Hapagirl said...

I love scrapbooking, making cards, and taking photos of my daughters, ages 2 and 8. Both baskets are adorable! :)

Thanks for the fun give away!
Kimberly

Hapagirl said...

I like to rubber stamp, make cards and take photos of my daugthers, ages 2 and 8 years old.

Both baskets are very cute. Thanks for the fun give away! :)

Casey White said...

I choose the PINK! I love the rub-ons. I stumbled across your blog from another site. I always tell my customers that I'm a stampaholic and the only 12 step program I need is to have 12 steps or less between me and my stamps!

I have been doing rubber stamping and scrapbooking for 10 yrs, but did counted cross-stitch and other small wood crafts for many years.

Wife2TJ said...

Wow girl, 121 comments, you go!!! Great blog candy. Thanks for sharing it with us all.

Stampin'JenP said...

I love making things with my hands. I am not really picky about what it is, whether bracelets, scrapbooking, and Stampin' Up! I never knew I was crafty at all until my step sister introduced me to it a little over a year ago and I had to have everything. I am such an addict. I also love to bake, spend time with my family, and tinker with computer programming

Momabellah said...

Wow, very generous of you! I love making scrapbooks for my two daughters. I also write journals for them both. I write everyday since they were born. I had personalized hope chests made for them, so when they get married or turn 18 something special like that I will give it to them. Thanks for the chance! :)

Momabellah said...

oppss.. me again. I chose pink! I am soo girly! Thanks :)

keferretti said...

Hi! You have a great blog. Lots of beautiful things. I've only visited a few blogs and this is the first time I've commented. I'm new to this cardmaking thing and can see it's going to be very addictive. :)

The only other craft/hobby I have is candy making. I've also dabbled in cake decorating. Can you tell I love food? :)

Thanks for sharing your beautiful work and for great "blog candy". I love them both so you can pick for me.
