VIDEO: Belated Birthday GIVEAWAY!!

 Hi guys!!!  I'm back tonight with a GIVEAWAY for you all!  Woo hoo!!  So my birthday was last week and as a belated birthday gift for all of you I am giving away two adorable mini stamp sets with coordinating dies from Lawn Fawn and a super awesome die from Mama Elephant!!  Yes, you read that correctly, there will be THREE winners!! 


So for the giveaway video I am trying something a little different and showing my face (gasp!) instead of just my hands.  I've been thinking about what I really want out of my blog and YouTube channel, why I do what I do, and the overwhelming reason is all of you!  I am in constant awe of the way the crafty community supports one another and comes together in all things and thought, wouldn't it be so great to tap into that community of support and sharing in other aspects of our lives?  So I have decided to bring in a few more personal elements to my posts and videos.  



Now, I will still be making cards and projects because that is where my passion lies, I'm just going to be adding little tidbits about me , the fan, things I am happy about or maybe struggling with.  I don't really have a concrete plan . . . I just think it would be cool if maybe I'm dealing with an issue that one of my readers/viewers has dealt with and they could give me some tips and vice versa!  It could be as simple as a good recipe for pot roast or as personal as my ongoing struggle to be healthy and exercise (it never ends, I tell ya!) but the point is, let's do it together!


So now that my spiel is out of the way, let's talk GIVEAWAY!!  So I'm giving away the Lawn Fawn Year Two stamp set and coordinating dies, the Lawn Fawn So Jelly stamp set and coordinating dies, and the Mama Elephant Lots of Stars die!!  SO THREE lucky folks will be selected!!  And you'll get a cute little notecard made with your new goodies as a sample!  You can enter using the Rafflecopter below until Thursday, February 11, 2016.  I'll announce the winners on Friday, February 12, 2016!!

a Rafflecopter giveaway
So go on, enter!!  And thank you all for being such a huge, important, happy part of my life!!  I simply cannot thank you enough!  I am so looking forward to the next chapter.  See you again soon!  Bye!

  2. How generous of you ~ thanks Tara. Last year for my birthday it was spent on the golf course with my son who plays High School Golf. My husband who is in the Army was TDY at the time so when he returned our family went out to eat at our favorite restaurant.

  30. Hello! It's brave of you to put yourself out there more with your audience but I like connecting and sharing and communicating; I feel shy showing my projects but I've enjoyed learning more about the online crafting community and becoming more comfortable because we all share the same passion! ... My birthday is coming up on Super Bowl Sunday the 7th, rooting for Peyton Manning and the Broncos! This weekend we're driving from Nacogdoches, east Texas, through Louisiana, to Natchez, MI. Gonna eat some seafood and celebrate Mardi Gras too! Thanks for the opportunity to win! I love your projects and videos! I'm also proud you channeled your inner Vicki P, good job!

  98. Tara, not sure if you'll get all the way down to this comment, but I wanted to propose a give-away myself. I often end up purchasing a duplicate item (somehow the quantity in my shopping cart changes to 2 instead of one) or I find I already have an item that I just ordered (who hasn't done that?). I don't really have any crafting friends as I work long hours, but I hate to see duplicates go to waste. It occurred to me that you have the vehicle, through your blog and YouTube, that I lack to find someone to whom these can be given, no cost to you or the receiver. If you are interested at all, please contact me privately through Facebook (I'm the only Leuri Zibetti on Facebook in Provo, Utah). Hope to hear from you, otherwise, these duplicates may be tossed! Oh, I went to dinner with my husband at a restaurant for which we had a gift certificate, so it was a good day!
