How about a little CANDY ????

I've only been blogging for a couple weeks now and I feel like a fish out of water. This is a whole new experience for me.. So.. I think it's time for a little blog candy. It's very simple. All you need to do is post a comment to "THIS" post. If your a blogger I'd love to know if you have any helpful hints, what you may have found most helpful when you first started your blog etc. If you do not have your own blog, I'd love hear your comments.. (please be kind, I'm very new at this.. LOL) On Sunday March 4th at 6 PM (EST) I will be drawing a winner from all of the comments posted. The winner will receive.. The latest issue of Paper Crafts Gourmet, A new unmounted "Gently Falling" stamp set, a tooth fairy tin and a brand new container of Brazzill Wings " (1.5" blossoms in the color Arroyo). Good Luck..

Also, if your a blogger I'd love to check out your blog. Please feel free to post your site in your comment..

Well, you've started off right by having Allison hook you up. I found you from her blog. Even though I don't have a blog of my own I often find new blogs from the links.

Awesome blog candy. I love the Tooth Fairy tin, it is so cute. The color of the Bazill flowers is so pretty. Plus who wouldn't love the SU set. I'll be sending my niece Chantale by to have a look. Thanks.

Heidi said...

Wow! Now that is generous! I really enjoyed reading your blog! You make your cards kind of the same way I do....one will be bright and cheery, the next one will be very simple, and the one after that will have lots of layers! I love crafting that way!

Lynne said...

Congrats on your blog....I'll be keep my eyes out for your creations on your blog..

Beautiful blog! It's an addiction, this blogging thing! I have to be careful not to let my desire to blog get in the way of actually creating. My biggest tip, though, is to sign up for Google Reader, if you haven't already. That free service keeps an account of when all the blogs you've subscribed to have been updated. It's such a time saver! My blog:

Congrats on your new blog!! They are very addicting!--especially with all this candy floating around! The best advice I can give you is to make it fun for you, or it will end up being a chore to update! my readers really love that it sounds like i am talking to them as if they were right there in the conversation. KWIM? Good luck and great job so far! Here's mine--- www.susiestampalot.blogspot.com

Congratulations on your new blog. I can't subscribe to your blog because I don't know how to do it, I can only use FeedBlitz. I am computer use impaired. I will Bookmark you and I do check on the blogs I have listed there daily. You are more than generous with your blog candy. Thank you for sharing with us. My daughter and I are thinking about starting a blog together.

Lilian said...

Props to you for your new blog! ur cards are beautiful!!

i{heart}2stamp said...

great blog and great blog candy. i don't know that i have any advice other than just be yourself. i was so into "what do others want to read" when i started. i quickly figured out that it was MY blog and i could do what I wanted. have fun with it!!! i'll be adding you to my blogging list on www.iheart2stamp.com

shelley davis said...

Hello,
No sadly I don't have a blog. But I am getting better at this whole computing thing! Thank heavens for kids!
One thing that I would advise is don't get down hearted if you don't get lots of comments. We're still out here. I tend not to comment unless I have a lot of time. I prefer to only post when I have something worth while to say.
Have a wonderful week.
Shelley

quickcurl said...

I think you have a great blog! I dont have one myself. I love to look at other people's creations and get inspired! You are doing a fine job of that! Thanks for sharing! Christine

stampin_melissa said...

Offering blog candy is a good way of getting your blog out there and noticed. What yummy blog candy you are offering! I'm adding your blog to my reader so I'll be back!

Lauren Pittman said...

Wow! Great blog candy!! I hope I win!! hehe! I have a blog, but sadly I have not updated it for awhile. I have been too busy with school and work, so its been hard lately, but I hope when summer comes and I have a break I will be back to doing it regularly! Im looking forward to reading your blog for many times to come! =)

Hi! Well, since you are allowing me to comment, you've already received my blog suggestion. I like the projects you've posted this month, and I hope you get your "subscribe" thingy worked out too. mnhyrkas

laura j said...

Thanks for offering the blog candy and congrats on your new blog! I plan to visit again on a regular basis!

Nancy said...

Great candy! How generous of you! My best advice is to stamp because you want to... not because of a sense of obligation to your readers. Share what you create, but create because you love to!

Leah said...

Allison, it looks like you're doing a great job with your blog! I'm new myself, so I don't really have any suggestions :) looks like great blog candy! TFS!

Jan Scholl said...

I saw that magazine at the book store-very yummy. I have a blog but dont have enough time to update like all the other ladies seem to do multiple times a day. Wish there was a blogging hour.

Sarebear said...

great blog candy! You can get to my blogs (my main blog, then my crafting ones are linked in my sidebar, near the top) by clicking on my name.

Figure out what you like about other people's blogs, ie, how they put their personality into it, they way they do tutorials, or whatnot, and figure out what aspects of those you'd be able to do yourself (obviously with your own content, about you and stuff).

mjb coffee said...

Wow! What great blog candy. I like to see what you are doing and to hear about things happening in your life. A little of both is good.

Scrappyant said...

Hi Allison,

Great Blog Candy! I enjoy reading your blog and the inspirations you give.

You had asked about blogging. Well, I just started my own. I did quite a bit of reading before I began my blog. I checked out other blogs, made a list of what I wanted my blog to look like. What should I list on the sidebars. I think I finally have a blog that I like. It is still evolving.

Ila said...

Your blog looks great...beautiful cards! I've enjoyed looking around..I'll be back. I'm a new blogger too..I'll add you to my favourite places to visit.

Heather Leech said...

I found you through Allison's site as well! I've quickly browsed your blog and I'm glad I did! Awesome blog candy as well!!

Angie Britt said...

Great blog! I don't have one yet so I can't give you any technical pointers, sorry! I can tell you that it looks wonderful and I can't wait to come back and see what you have done!

tanis said...

I don't have one either, but so far so good! Always love the giveaways
;)
Hope you're enjoying this new adventure!

These blogs are addicting! One leads you from one to another and before you know it your head is spinning with so many ideas (blog candy in itself!) I don't have this stamp set or the flowers. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. The toothfairy tin would be so adorable for my 7 year old granddaughter!

Love the blog candy!! For a blog tip I would say just stamp what you love and then share it with us.

Louise said...

Welcome to blogville! I've been doing this since November and I'm still learning too! What you have so far, looks good though so you're on the right track! Regular posts do keep a captive audience :) Your blog candy looks good too! www.alittlehouseontheprairie.blogspot.com

Stacy Westman said...

Congrats Lisa! It's a new world for me too! The most helpful comment I can give you is to update it fairly often- I think a minimum of once a week, and keep it interesting. Have fun with it!
