it's here - the blog crawl!


aren't you excited?

if you are new here, welcome welcome! please be sure to poke around a bit. my blog is basically a place to go for daily inspiration - i comb the web for cool ideas and share them with you, my readers. you'll find loads of tutorials, free printables, and other paper craft inspiration every day!

if you are one of my loyal readers, just stopping by...be sure to visit bella blvdjillibean soup and nikki sivils scrapbooker to sign up for a chance to win a prize pack ($50 value) and weave your way through design team members blogs to enter to win handmade items! (see list of bella blvd designers with links below - go to jillibean soup and nikki sivils scrapbooker for list of their designers)

here's my handmade giveaway....

isn't it the cutest ever?  i used the estate sale line from bella blvd to make this - i love the combination of pink and grey in this line!

my friend and amazing altered goddess extraordinaire, vanessa felie sells these blank wooden perpetual calendar bases in her etsy shop. her husband makes them! isn't that cool? if you don't feel up to altering one yourself, she offers completed calendars in her shop with loads of themes. i'm especially partial to the teacher ones. i'm seriously thinking that might be the teacher appreciation gift this year.

to enter the drawing, please leave a comment below telling what your favorite inspiration blog is and be please sure that i can get in touch with you. everyone is welcome to enter even the international ladies! i'll draw a winner on monday, so check back to see if you won!

be sure to visit these other bella blvd designers to see what they are giving away...
