{ Blog Candy} A clean house and a 4 year-old


BLOG CANDY as a Thank you for over 2000 posts!! Thanks for checking in on me here. I plan to have more cards up now as well as more scrapbook layouts too. But otherwise I hope your enjoy stopping in here.

Got my picture now so you can see what you are getting. I have one FOREVER Heidi Swapp clear stamp, two small notebooks to be altered, a some fiber, and various Primas.



To get the Blog Candy, just leave me a lil note in the comments section with your name and maybe tell me what you are looking for when you browse the blogs. Just so I know what I can do.

ETA - I didn't set an ending date. You can comment until Friday night until 8 pm. Then I'll draw a name!! Good luck!

As for the rest of my headlines - I spent the day scrubbing house(the upstairs anyway). Yes, the day. It really needed a good scrubbing and so I went to town. I love it. I really like a clean house, but with three kids, Greg and then a puppy it isn't always something that's easy to do. I don't mind the toys and what not strewn around, I just like to take care of the garbage and what not that gets mixed in there!! And now with the puppy, he likes to chew things up... UGH.

RC (the 4 year-old) was pretty helpful today too. He really entertained McKinley when I needed him too. And he was good for the most part. When I turned the water on the lawn and said stay out of it, I wasn't at all surprised when he came inside wet.
But he has this fasination with things being hot. Like on the stove or at mom and dad's with their wood stove. I know that I have spent at least 3 of the last 4 years telling him that things are hot and not to touch. But now he likes to walk up to them and touch them, asking if they are hot. He got burned twice now. Nothing serious, but still. Why is he doing this? And why isn't he learning from getting burned! I tell you he may be lucky to see 5.
I also noticed he spends too much time with my mom and dad. Today he was having a Coffee Break. Something I think they do a little too often out there. (winks**)

PS Tell your friends about the Blog Candy!!

What do I like to see when I browse my blogs? I like to find that it's been updated relatively regularly. I like to see anything creative. Something that makes me stop to ponder what I could do with what I have to create something just as wonderful!

Allison said...

I'm with Nancy...I like to see blogs that are updated regularly with lots of pictures (so I can CASE them...ha!)...

doverdi said...

I have to agree with the others about liking blogs that are updated regularly. I also like to see cards, techniques, scrapbook pages, altered items just whatever the blog owner choses to share. I like to see that she is having fun with her blog because that's what is important...pleasing yourself first.

Hi! I like to see photos of people's work so that I can be inspired for my own creations.

Jackie said...

Hi Katie! I, too, love to see regularly updated blogs and photos of projects, whether they be cards, notebooks, altered tins, different containers, etc. Just something to spark my creativity when I'm not feeling so creative my own self. I am continually amazed by the different ideas people have using basically the same products - sort of "wow, I coulda had a V8" kind of moments!

Hello Katie! My name is Jackie and I mainly browse blogs to see how other stampers create things. Pictures is something I always look for when roaming through blogs, they always make me stop and consider someone elses creation.

bethtrue said...

hi Katie - your blog looks cool.... i like to browse blogs (and subscribe to them and also add them to Google Reader) looking for ideas - pictures of cards using patterned paper in new ways, ideas for stamp sets that i already own, new color combinations, etc. i also like to read about people's daily lives; activities, recipes, shopping trips, etc. i like it all! :-)

have a great day -
