GIVEAWAY: BasicGrey Stamps

Conversation with my husband last September when I started my blog.

Ben: Are you going to have one of those craft blogs where they do a bunch of giveaways?
Me: (laughs) No. Those are for big sites. Scrapbook companies send them products to giveaway. It's a form of advertising.
Ben: But you have enough stuff to giveaway.
Me: Very funny. ... Maybe I'll have a giveaway for my 100th post.
Ben: What about when you have 100 readers?
Me: Yeah right. ... Fine. When...IF...100 people ever read my blog, I'll host a giveaway.

Fast forward to this week.

Well hello there, readers! Glad you liked my tutorials. :)

And look where you come from! Turns out, it's not just my proud parents clicking around on here.

I'm such a dorky fan girl that a few months ago I started keeping a list of the countries my blog visitors come from. Though we live far, far apart, I love seeing how the internet can bring people with common interests so close together. As an added bonus, my knowledge of eastern European geography has improved tremendously since I started checking my site stats each week. :)

Now for the giveaway...I have three sets of acrylic stamps from BasicGrey.

I'd Pick You



I also have a pack of BasicGrey Cozy Posies to give away. (That's a fancy name for chenille flowers.)

To enter, simply leave a comment telling me how you found my site. If you're a regular reader, I'd love to know that, too! Please make sure I have a way to contact you if you win. (Either leave your email address, blog address, or make sure your Google ID links to your contact info.) I'll pick a winner on July 1st and will gladly ship anywhere in the world. If you're willing to visit, I'm willing to say thanks!

Good luck!


  1. Congrats on reaching over 200 visitors from ALL over the world! I'm not at all surprised!! :)

    I found your blog via your family blog.

  2. Congrats on all of your visitors... isnt it cool when you see where all of the people come from. :) I am not exactly sure when or where I found your blog...most likely through blog surfing or I saw your card posted somewhere & loved your style & linked here for more fabulous inspiration. I subscribe through google reader. :)

  3. WOW--congrats on so many visitors! I found your site because you were linked through another RSS Feed that I subscribe to. I have been following ever since [through Shrook my RSS Feeder] ;)

    Thanks for the chance to win! LOVE visiting your site--so much crafty goodness:)

  4. You are so much braver than me keeping track of stats! When I first stated blogging, I had a vistor counter and then decided that I didn't want to know if no one was visiting and took it off!! Haha!!
    I really can't remember how I found your guess I followed a link from a creation of yours on someone else's blog

  5. I came across your site a few weeks ago...I think it was linked from another site that I follow, and I immediately fell in love :)

  6. You're so sweet! I have been following your blog for quite some time now. Someone (I want to say it was Kim Wilson) linked a wedding dress card (Moxie Fab) you made on their blog and I loved it so I'd been following ever since.

  7. Hi Rachel, I found your blog by the "Oneprettything" I saw the seven eyed Softies (I loved it). I'd like to do it for my grand daughter (someday)
    I always visit you. I have your blog on my Google Reader. I'd like so much to have these stamps. kisses from Brazil.
