Blog Candy....FINALLY!


I'm sorry. I teased you all with the idea of Blog Candy a while back, but I'm FINALLY ready to give some away. I actually had to search through my supplies to find something that I could part with (since it's REALLY hard to find scrappin stuff over here!!) But I hope you all will find my offering worthy!

There are some metal edged tags (all vellum) some flower eyelets, some metal embossed squares from Scrap Yard, some adorable silk leaves perfect for autumn cards, one of my photo wallets, and a few more things will be added - such as some coasters from my favorite Bier Garten and a cute notebook I'm almost done with.

How to enter? Please comment on this entry and include your favorite Valentine memory, and how you found my blog! I will be drawing from all comments left on Thursday, February 15th around noon Germany time (Meridian time +1) so get to it!

TFL!

  1. Hi there...my favourite memory would be one of my first child-like romances at the age 9. We exchanged valentines through a mutual friend, stated that we were boyfriend and girlfriend but never actually talked...silly! I can't recall how I found your site (I look at far too many!)...if I were to guess, I would say that I found it as a link from another blog. Should there be no issue, I am going to post this contest link on my site...

  2. I found you from Allison's blog. My fondest Valentine memory was when I was a Sophmore in high school and I gave my boyfriend a valentine that was a dog that said it was a smooch pooch and he thought it said he was a smooth pooch. He ended up being a smooth pooch & I married him 33 years ago.
    Love your blog!

  4. Hi Jana, Allison has sent me as well! LOL I am just loving your blog...totally adorable artwork!! I'll be subscribing and checking in for sure!
    A favorite v-day memory? I think it just goes back to elementary school and making those (ugly) valentine boxes and then swapping cards w/ the whole class. We would put our desks in a circle and have one big party every year. So much fun then but not all that exciting to tell about now. lol

  5. I found your blog through Kerry's! My favourite Valentine memory was probably in my teens when I attended a church youth group. We did a "box social" thing, dressed like the 50's and I think we watched Princess Bride! Fun memories! Although now my hubby is usually pretty great at bringing me flowers (I tell him to pick a different day so they aren't so pricey but he never does!) and we maybe do dinner :)

  8. My favorite memory is receiving a box of chocolates from my dad just like he gave my mom. Keep in mind, my dad passed away (1988) at the age of 41. So I miss him terribly. especially since it was 5 days after my birthday.

  9. Hi Jana! I found your blog through Allison's. Hmm, favourite Valentine's memory would be when my then-brand-new-boyfriend-now-husband walked a very long way in the dead of winter to buy me Hershey kisses and a card. We were in university at the time and he couldn't afford a car. I was in night class and when I got back to my dorm, there were the kisses placed in a heart around a very romantic card. I'll never forget that!

  11. I love the variety in your blog candy, but to be honest, I'd love it were all the same stuff.

    My favorite valentine memories are those in grade school, making our valentine boxes from a shoebox, crepe paper, and construction paper. Then receiving valentine cards from every member of the class.

    Oh, and your mom told me about your blog!

  12. My favorite Valentine memory is that my dad would come home with a bouquet of flowers for my stepmom and would always have a special single bloom just for me. That always made me feel so special to him :)

  14. Ok, Allison should get a prize! I found you through her too. BTW, I live in Maine! My husband grew up here (in OOB,) went to college in S.California, but we live in Maine now. Funny. . . anyway, I really don't have any great valentine memories, but I still love the holiday!

  15. Creative Expressions by Stephanie is the blog that told me about your blog candy.

    My favorite Vday memory? Hmmmm, that is really difficult. I don't have one. Perhaps this year will be it? My DS is in preschool now and I am helping out for his party so this is a first for me! :D

  18. What great blog candy! I found your blog through the Creative Expressions blog. Unfortunately I cannot share a favorite Valentine's memory. Valentine's day has not as yet been a great day in my life. (Makes me wonder) I'll try my best to make great memories for someone else (my kids!) TFS!

  19. I think I found your blog via SCS or something like that.

    My favourite memory is my daughter (who will 34 in May) giving me a valentine. I'm sad because it has gotten lost in the many moves we've had over the years!!!

    One of my favorite mmemories is when our daughters exchanged homemade cards as little girls who were sure their cards were the prettiest valentines in the world!

  22. Hi Jana,

  24. I found your blog because of Allison-she must read every blog on the internet. I dont have a favorite valenitne memory-because I am usually home alone. But I do like to make valentines and give them away.

  25. I found your blog through Stephanie's blog, so will be adding to my favourites

    My one time favourite memory of valentines was when I met my boyfriend (first boyfriend and is now my husband of 13 years!!! arh)

    I went to go to work one morning (when I lived at home) and i opened up the back door and on the doorstep was a big box in a black bin liner as it was raining!!

    In it was a great big cuddly "My Pet Monster" horrible blue and purple and green thing, but I thought it was the most wonderful thing I had ever had (it did have plastic cuff links on, he he he)

  26. I found your blog from Stepanie. I am so glad that I did as you have some amazing work here. I really have no valentines memories. My husband is not one for giving gifts on any occasion so I never receive anything. We normally eat valentines day dinner by candlelight which at least sets the day apart.
    Thanks for the blog candy.

  27. I found your site at Stephanies site and will be linking it on mine. My favorite valentine memory is my first date with my husband back when we were in high school. I wasn't 16 yet (2 days later I was) so we went out on a group date. It definately wasn't the most glamourous date ever but we're still together 10 years later.
    Happy Valentines to you and your family!

  30. Must be a lot of people perusing Allison's blog. I found your site through her too!
    My favorite valentine memory is when my husband (who's not a very romantic fella) sent me flowers! Can you imagine my surprise & of course loads of tears!!! Very sweet.

  31. My favorite Valentine memories would be when I was in public school. We'd spend a few days before the big day writing up all our cards and making sure to save the best one's for those special friends. Then the big day comes and we'd exchange our cards. It was so special at the time. Coming home with all our cards and pouring over them.

  32. Gosh, I have many good Valentine memories. I love the memories of a child getting the valentines from all your classmates. As an adult, I have been lucky enough to have had many great memories, none that are super exciting, but I have been lucky in love.

  33. I found your blog in a roundabout way from Anna Wight. My memories from Valentines Days past is when I was in grade school and waiting to see what the boys wrote in my Valentines. Wow! Those were the days..:)

  34. Oh, I totally remember my favorite Valentine--it just happened a couple of days ago! My 6 year old kindergartner and a little boy in her class are "sweet" on each other (already!). So she reminded me it was almost Valentine's and to make sure "Cameron" remembered, she made him a Happy AlMOST Valentine's Day card and took it to school the next day!! So cute! Gotta start early putting the thoughts in the boy's heads to remember those dates! Turns out, he is the son of my UPS man!!! oi!!

  35. My favorite Valentne memory would be from 1947 when I was in the 5th grade. We made shoebox Valentine boxes and then we had a Valentine exchange. I still have some of my Valentines in a scrapbook. I wonder if they are still in one piece.

  36. My favorite Valentine memory would have to be when my husband (boyfriend, almost fiance) asked me to a Valentine's dinner/dance/party in Haiti in 2000 -- we were both missionaries there. I thought for sure he was going to propose that night, but he didn't! (He ended up proposing 2 months later & we were married July 1, 2000.)

    I found your blog from "kylamaestassweetwaterstampers" who I found through splitcoaststampers. I just LOVE going on stamping adventures through cyber space!

  37. Hi Jana,
    So, have to share the memorable moment that happened this morning . . . said "Happy Valentine's" to my hubby as he was leaving for work and he looked very surprised and sheepish and said, "What? Oh no, today's Valentine's Day! I thought it was this past weekend!" What a romantic! LOL!

    Hope you fare better than me with your hubby!

    Hugs,
    M

  38. I had forgotten about my father always bringing home Turtles made by Fannie May candies when I was a little girl. He brought my mother and I both a box. Funny thing was, my mom didn't even like them. My dad and I were the ones who loved them. My poor mom ~ she didn't even get her favorite candies. But you know, we always laughed about it. Maybe she was just being a kind mom.

  39. I see my friend Tanis has posted, so I should, too! Hehehe. I can't recall how I found your blog...perhaps also through Allison's? My favourite Valentine memory...hmmm....perhaps the time my mother surprised me with a trip to Toronto during spring break. I think it was during Valentine's! (Don't have any romantic memories. Such is life for a single girl!)
    Danke schön!
