Second Blogaversary and candy . . .
Approximately two years ago my dad died. When he passed away, I did two things: first, I went out and got a puppy (DH had nothing he could say in defense, it lived in my lap for at least two solid weeks). Second, I also started a blog as a method of additional stamping therapy and what a great experience it has been to date. Who knew you could 'meet' such great people through the internet? Although I have to admit, I met my DH through an internet dating site. (shhhh!!! don't tell anyone!)
I love blog hopping and seeing everyone else's fabulous artwork and enjoy sharing my projects online here as well.
So to thank those who wander across this space once in a while I'm offering some blog candy that will end one week after my blogaversary. I'll choose one person at random (you know the drill) and what I have here is a yard each of ribbon roses in pink and cream, a pack of Frost 6x6 DP from Memory Box, a deep edge Martha Stewart punch Garden Gate and a stamp set I have never used from Close to my Heart called Seed Packets and it has, of course, a rose stamp inside it.
To win my blog candy simply tell me about someone in your life who you love or have loved . . .
Instead of talking about my dad, I'm just going to say a few words about my grandmother. I only saw her once a year when she flew to visit us but I looked forward to those visits all year long. She was the quintessential grandmother, big lap to sit in to hear stories or songs, arms always ready to hug you, a constant smile, a great cook and unconditional love radiating from every fiber of her being. I treasured my time with her and miss her still, but she taught me my very first lessons in life about love and what it looks like in one of its best forms.
Now its your turn.
Blog candy ends midnight on February 21st.
