Basket of Basic Grey Bling Blog Candy!

I dare ya to say that five times!!! I have been craving candy all day, chocolate candy, so I decided to make up a little basket of "blog candy" to get my mind off the other kind. No occasion really . . . I just decided that it was time to have a little fun here at Bella Willow and see what all of my dear stamping, cardmaking, scrapbooking, altering, and papercrafting friends are up to these days. I took a long break from blogging due to a very hectic work schedule, but I am back now and I hope you will still come and visit once in a while, and say hello.

You all know what I have been up to . . . working, taking care of my sweet Willow and Isabella, stamping with my friends, and just enjoying life. So come on over to Bella Willow and tell me what you have been up to. Tell me about your latest paper crafting project, achievement, favorite stamp set, or just say hi and tell me what you would like to see more of here at Bella Willow. If you have a favorite place to shop that you would like to tell everyone about, or you own a company, let me know and I will add it to my recommended shopping list. If you have a blog that you would like us to know about, let me know and I will add it to the Blogs list.

So don't be shy . . . leave a message for a chance to win this most fabulous basket of Basic Grey bling blog candy. This cute little wire basket is full of all kinds of goodies for your stamping and papercrafting enjoyment. You will receive a stamp set from Rhonna Farrar, a spool of ribbon, a little book to embellish, a book from Kaisercraft, some bling, some brads from Making Memories, and . . . . drum roll please . . . a brand new 6 x 6 pad of paper from Basic Grey in the much anticipated Porcelain line. It is absolutely gorgeous. Archiver's just got it in a few days ago and I bought two so I could share one.

I will be randomly picking a name on Wednesday evening and announcing the winner. Good luck everyone!!!

Thank you for stopping by and thanks for your posts.

Big stamping hugs.

Hi Pegi, good to see you back. Wish I could say that for my blog--I haven't posted in such a long time. My husband and I are entering a new phase of our lives as he was laid off from his job in November and at 60 years of age in this job market, we are finding that there are no jobs. So, we have our home up for sale and are living in a campground now in our camper. I do have my stamps and paper with me so I have done some stamping (mainly for gifts) but am adjusting to this change. We had to put our precious westie, Abby, down in Oct, so as you can tell 2008 was not our best year ever. On the positive side, we are looking forward to entering this next adventure to see what awaits us. Hugs to your sweet doggies.

This candy looks delicious Pegi! I'm so glad that you're posting again and look forward to seeing more of your beautiful creations to inspire me!

Pegi, thanks so much for posting this. I have been working in a chocolate shop recently -- but this does look yummier than chocolate to me! As much as I would enjoy it -- it sounds like CHERYL could really use a pick-me-up!

If I do win, send it to her instead!

Welcome back. I'm looking forward to seeing what you have to share with us. I would really like to win this candy, but I have to agree with Julie. So if I'm the lucky one please send the basket to Cheryl.

blog candy. Thanks for sharing. I love to make cards. I love sharing the joy of cardmaking with family, friends and the youth group at church. Can't wait to see what you have to share next. I can always use good ideas. Mary

Hi Pegi!
I am so glad to see Willow and Bella again :)
I am still a subscriber, so I get your updates, I just don't get to read them every day now that I'm working again.

I started a part time job at my LSS and I just love it...getting paid to create with paper and ink...what fun!

Thanks so much for a chance to win that gorgeous BG!

It's so nice to see you blogging again! I have been in a crafting/blogging slump the last few weeks - too much work and other life stress, I guess. But a nice three-day weekend last weekend helped me find my groove again and it has been nice to get inky again.

OMG I just saw your creation below this post with the BG paper...I sure hope I win!! YAhhooo how cute! I know you were really busy with a new job before, so it's great to have a super crafty lady back on the scene! Welcome back! :)
