    Mynew year’s resolutions include losing weight AND stamping more. maybe even scrapping!!!!


  4. Kelly Watts Says:

    New Years Resolution…. Definitely to get into better shape, exercise more so that I don’t get so sore while crafting. To scrap more of my numerous pics.
    Thanks for sharing


  5. Elaine Says:

    I should join in with you on the new year’s resolution!! What a nice way to share what you have stashed and work toward your goals!!
    Happy New Year!


  6. jenna Says:

    This is a most terrific blog candy offer! You rock! My resolutions? The first is the same as yours – use up what I have. The second is either lose weight this year or quit nagging myself and accept and enjoy who I am.


  7. sandie carter Says:

    I tend to keep my New Year resolutions simple – more likely to keep them that way!! LOL

    1/ I aim to ink up some virgin rubber(clear stamps included) each time I have a stamping session and hopefully get to use all my stamps at least once in my life time!!.

    2/ Start my Christmas cards in January and hopefully get them done in the first half of the year.

    I know I will never use up all the stash of stamping goodies I have bought over the years but I am making myself try to use some of it. I will be slowly going through it all and either giving away stuff I no longer use or want or throwing away (shock horror – this is so hard to do) all those scraps of c/b I have saved but never used.

    What an amazing blog ! My resolution is to make more cards for the troops in Iraq.


  9. Lisa K Says:

    Funny you mention that…because I too want to curb my scrapbook/stamping spending! I am going to resolve to stop Hording and start Using! 😉 Also, I am going to have a stash of cards and not wait until the last minute to mail them! Thanks! Lisa K


  10. Nettystamps Says:

    OMG….what a stash! And this would soooo help me on my New Year’s resolution….to spend more time actually on my crafting (mostly stamping and scrapping)…. Your generousity is overwhelming!!! YOU GO GIRL!

    I hope you and your family have a New Year full of blessings and happiness!!!


  11. sandie994 Says:

    I really need to get my stamp room organized. That is my number one priority. I would also like to be more produtive in my stamping. Thanks for the chance to win.


  12. katey Says:

    WOW!!! nice RAK!!!

    My hope to join design team, lose some weight, potty training my daughter, and get vacation family!

    Happy new year!


  13. Mandiannie Says:

    Well one of mine is to spend less on scrapbooking stuff so winning some would be a great way to keep that promise and to start off the new year.


  14. Michael Says:

    What a fun idea!

    One of my resolutions this year is to take my polymer clay-related work more seriously– get my new website up and running (and stocked), continue adding to the “old” one, work on some of the new designs I’ve been thinking about forever, and just generally treat it more like a business than a hobby.

    Good luck with your resolution! :o)


  15. Nicole Says:

    New Years resolutions….I am not into making promises to myself that I know I won’t keep…however this year I am wanting to get to know God more and am wanting to become a more loving, and compassionate person. It’s so easy to become self-centered in this world and I don’t want to be that.
    I have just started stamping and card-making, I love it!! There’s no better way to tell people just how much you love em!!


  16. Ghazal Says:

    It’s easy to make New Year’s resolutions but they are hard to keep. My resolutions for this year are:
    Manage my money better … Enjoy life more … Organize my craft room!! … Make my life more peaceful.


  17. SusanH Says:

    Wow, what a great pile of candy!! Happy New Year to you, too!!


  18. Angela Says:

    Great giveaway & great New Year’s res. I can definitely relate to the using-what-you-have concept, having just cleaned out my craft room (& realizing I have *way* too much stuff!).

    But this year I’m trying out Christine Kane’s one-word alternative to resolutions, (she has a great article on it at I’m still feeling out my words, actually. I’m either going with “focus” (e.g., focusing on the most important things), “action” (e.g., not putting things off), or “choice” (e.g., being conscious of the choices I make about how I spend my time). Happy New Year!
