My 1,000th Blog Post and Blog Candy Today!


Hi, Stampers! I am excited to say that today I have reached my 1,000th blog post, woo hoo! I thought I would celebrate by sharing some candy with my faithful followers. 

Since the holidays are just around the corner, I thought I would offer some perfectly coordinated holiday goodies from Stampin' Up. Included are: 16 6"x6" sheets of Snow Festival Designer Series Paper, a full roll (10 yards) of Gumball Green Sweater Trim, Snow Festival Designer Tags and a bottle of Dazzling Details. You'll be all ready to make some holiday projects!

How to play: Simply leave a comment at the end of this blog post (make sure it is this post only). Everyone is welcome to play! Any comment will do, but how about telling me how many holiday cards you plan on making this year? 

The deadline for entries is 6:00 pm ET, Friday, November 28th. Winner will be randomly selected using Random.org and announced on Saturday, November 29th. Winner must provide their mailing address (US only, please) within 48 hours, so be sure to check my post on the 29th to see if it is you!

Good Luck and Happy Stamping!

Well, congrats on your 1000th post! I enjoy each and every one of them, too! :D I am not even sure how many cards I'll be making this year! I sold some at a craft show, so now I need to regroup....probably at least 100!!! I love making and sending Christmas cards!

congrats on 1k! That's awesome.
So I've taken an inventory of the number of holiday cards I currently have and boy, did I need to get crackin'. I have under 30 now and dare I say that I want 70 more.

Wow - congratulations on your 1000th post. I enjoy visiting your site and seeing your wonderful creations. As for Christmas cards - I've made 20 so far (2 different designs) and hope to make at least another 20, plus lots of tags for presents. Thanks again for all your share on your blog.

I look at your blog everyday and have made several of your cards. I plan on making about 50 Christmas cards this year. I love to make about 10 different styles so I have a variety of cards.
Happy Thanksgiving,
Dianna

Congratulations! I love your blog. I had planned on making about 85 cards but with a new baby just placed with us I'm not sure if I'll get to it.

That's a whole lot of blogging, Sandy! Thank you for the chance to win some very nice Christmas items! I'm planning to make 35 cards this year. I plan to make some projects also, so your stash would be well appreciated! It's also my birthday next Saturday....wouldn't that be a nice present!

Congratulations on 1,000 blog posts; quite a mile stone! I'd love to win your blog candy as there's nothing quite as exciting as Christmas themed anything!!! I make about 24 cards each year and spend quite a bit of time on each one of them even though they are normally all the same.

Vicky said...

Congratulations! I have enjoyed all of them, thank you so much for sharing your talent.
I will probably make about 30 cards.

Sandra Schroeder said...

Well, I've made well over 100 so far, but sold some at a craft fair at church. Not sure if I need to make more for mailing. Only know that I wanmt to make more with so many wonderful stamp sets that I haven't used yet. The only problem is seeing how fast I heel from my hip replacement & how well I can get around to do so. Thanks for all your beautiful inspiration.

Evelyn said...

Last year I sent a card with our letter and make 86 but this year I will only be sending the letter with an envelope stamped to match the paper. I send so many birthday and anniversary cards that we decided to only do the letter this year.

Jaydee said...

Sandy, congratulations on this amazing milestone. 1000 blogposts is a lot of time and effort:-) I love that you provide us with so much inspiration, so regularly. Here's to the next 1000!
Hugs, my friend

Congratulations Sandy, you have a wonderful blog. Your cards are always inspiring. I am also enjoying watching your kitten grow. I will only make about a dozen cards for those on my special list.

Congrats on your milestone! I hope to have time to make at least a dozen cards. But I do plan on making little treat holders with tags to use in place of cards for my office co-workers! Annette P.

Barb capen said...

Hooray for you. Congrats on 1000th. Not sure how many Xmas cards I'll be doing since they are my favorite to make. Will be doing for family and friends as well as for craft fairs,so really hard to say except lots!

Elaine Shryock said...

Wow, your 1000th!!! I really don't count my cards...I just try to direct them to persons I know appreciate the artsy stuff. For anyone else I use something from the box stores that can be added onto for a little something special! Happy holidays!

Ka Hook said...

Congratulations on 1000 blog. I do enjoy your blog. I am not sure how many Christmas cards I will send this year. I just mailed 20 Thanksgiving cards.

Janelle Edgemon said...

Any cards I make over the next few weeks will be as gifts for others. Here's hoping I can carve (hee-hee) out some time! Congratulations on blog #1000. I so appreciate your clean style and your genuine personality.

Holly AKA KopyKat said...

Thanks for the chance to win candy. I'm hoping to make 10 holiday cards

Lynne said...

Wow, congratulation. Your blogs have been full of fun and inspiration.. Thanks so much for sharing.

Janet Mack said...

What a milestone, congratulations and thanks for the inspiration. I only make about 30 or so Christmas cards, life just gets too busy to make so many. Everybody gets handmade throughout the year.

Meredith L said...

Congratulations and thanks for the chance to win blog candy. I will probably make about 75 Hanukkah and Christmas cards.

Nance said...

Hi Sandy, Congrats on #1K! How super is that!!! I send out some store bought cards to those who don't know I make cards. Once you give a hand made card to someone . . . there is no going back. My list is down to about 80, with half being made . . . usually not two are alike either. I like seeing what supplies I can use up first. Have a great Thanksgiving. :)

Martha Herrera said...

congratulations on your 1000th post! That's fantastic!
I've done about 25 cards, but I need another 25. I'm on vacation this week, so I have a lot of crafting time.

Thanks for the chance to win blog candy!

JoAnn said...

Wow, congrats on your 1,000th blog post and thanks for all the inspiration you share in your posts. Gosh, I have made at least 2 Christmas cards almost every week this year, so I have made over 100 Christmas cards. Thanks for offering the generous blog candy.
I wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving.
