No Kidding?!

Did you hear? I'm having a giveaway! For more details, scroll down, or click on this link to head straight over there! Also, due to a slight oversight, I've edited my last post to include HOW to enter into my draw!

Remember this layout?


**Sorry--had to edit this post removing, temporarily, the layout that's being published. I'll put it back up here when the next Canadian Scrapbooker issue is out. December 1st is the magical date!!

I am pretty sure it made it into my blog, but I can't find the post.

Some time ago now, I sent it in to Canadian Scrapbooker, along with a bunch of other layouts- with the hope that one (or a few) of them would be published. Because, that's been a wild dream of mine for a while. Being published is the epitome of crafty nirvana.

My wildest dreams have finally come true! I am being published!

Keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming winter issue of Canadian Scrapbooker. You'll find it there! Eek!

So, to celebrate my first ever publication, and to extend the happiness a little further than just one RAK giveaway, I'm having two! Yup, TWO chances to win!

And, its simple: become a follower of my blog, spread the word on your own blog, and leave me a comment here letting me know you've done so. 

So, the goodies you'll be bidding for?

Here they are:

Prize one--

Prize two--

They are all cards I have in my stash, and they are all up for grabs! They are all ones that I've made myself. You might even recognize one or two of them- and that's because they were made with a specific purpose, but then were never used (for one reason or another). They could be yours!

There was a time, late last year and into the very early part of this year, where I was attempting to make and sell handmade cards, but the pressure got to me (because I was trying to sell myself, where it seemed no one was particularly interested), so I just gave up. Now, instead, my heart and focus is on Project 365, and its MUCH more satisfying than making and selling cards ever was!

I do want to say, however, that the intent is still there. So, if you know anyone that loves handmade cards- and needs cards- but doesn't want to make them themselves- send them in my direction. I'd love to help them out! 

Enjoy your day! My bestie is heading out tonight and we've got plans to hang out and catch up all weekend long. Yay!! I'll see everyone again Saturday night!
