I have some big news to share with you - something that I've been keeping a secret and that needs to be celebrated. Me, little old me,
WON CRAFT STAMPER'S ALTERED/MIXED MEDIA ARTIST OF THE YEAR 2010!!!
Can you believe it? And I don't even have altering as my main talent (but don't tell anyone ;)
This, together with the fact that I have reached over 200 followers and have had over 10,000 hits since feb 1:st calls for a big celebration candy. I also want to thank my followers and all of you lovely blogfriends out there that take the time to leave me comments. You don't know how much it means to me.
AND I'm launching a new blog called CRAFTER'S GUIDE where I put links to all sorts of crafts: free quiltpatterns, amigurumi, magazine blogs, challenge blogs, candy, tutorials and everything that I can't fit here. I'm hoping to review products and write about webshops. It all depends on the feedback I get and what you're interested in. I'd like to be your guinaepig :)
So to celebrate I have put together the SWEETest candy ever. All stamps are given to me by Lynette - the owner of sweetpea stamps. Thank you Lynette.
There will be several winners:
First prize is the biggest one with a candy/fruit/cupcakes themed paper set from DCWV, 5 SWEETpea stamps (Ryla, white peacock dryad, bad bunny and two textstamps) and a whole lot of embellishments, ribbons and other things (seen in the top image and below).
Second prize is three stamps from sweetpea stamps seen below. A fab mix of different artists from the sweetpea shop. With the first one you will be able to enter our Alice in wonderland/little red riding hood contest and that's one of the reasons I'm giving it away. So whoever wins this I hope you'll join us. Last day to enter the contest is march 30:th.

Third prize is a 3-month pro membership to instructables.com. With the pro membership you can dowload your fav instructables as pdf, have less ads and other things. I have posted a couple of tutorials there and it's a great way to learn step-by-step. I even managed to win a weddingcontest with my silk fabric bouquet. HERE is a link to all my tutorials on instructables.
Ok, so now I would like to show you what I won and where I got published, oh and WHAT got published, lol.
Remeber my sweetpea mask? (Click the link for a tutorial of the mask)
and now seen in the january 2011 issue of craft stamper (the colours are more accurate on my pic above):
And here's what I won together with a 1 year subscription to the mag. So much loot to play with (and alter)
OK, so here's how to win one of my candies:
1. Spread the word about my candy. Add the top image to your candyblogroll if you have one, blogpost or however you do it. I'd love if you could mention my additonal blog craftersguide if you make a post on your blog. If you fancy take a look around here and become a follower if you see what you like (not a requirement)
2. Add your name to mr linky below. Only one per person please. Candy is open worldwide and closes just before I draw the winner on march 13:th (probably my time in the evening).
3. Come by on march 13:th to see if you won and to help me celebrate my birthday. This year I'll be all alone, only the computer to keep me company so I'll probably be surfing around. I'll make sure to stuff some cake on the monitor so you can have a taste ;) Only advantage to this kind of celebration is that I can have the cake aaaall to myself :D
That's it! Hope you'll help me spread the word.
