Grab blinkie- giveaway!

How are you all doing?
It's a gloomy day here; it's pouring rain ( rain season has started) and my dear husband left this morning ( and will be gone for the rest of the year) so, yes, it's a pretty miserable day:(

Last weekend was good  though, when I went scrapping with my girlfriends. We stayed in a cabin overlooking the ocean and I don't think I went outside once. We scrapped, chatted, ate and watched movies non-stop.

Here's some of the layouts I made:


I thought it was time for a new giveaway!

This is for everyone of you that has a blog.
To be in the random drawing you have to do the following:

1.Look for "Grab my blinkie" in the right sidebar.
Copy the text under the blinkie.(Highlight and Ctrl C )

2. Go to dashboard on your blog and click "design".

3.Click "add a gadget" and then scroll down to "HTML/JavaScript".Click +

4.Paste by right clicking.

5. Now you should have a Scrap A Little blinkie on your blog.

6. Come back here and tell me your blog address.

I will show you a photo of the prize shortly:)


I just wanted to let you know that I have pulled my kids out of school and started homeschooling. That means I have absolutely NO TIME to myself whatsoever.
Gone are the days when I could scrap,blog and facebook all day long.
If I don't keep up my blog with tutorials and sketches as before, you know that I'm pulling my hair out over some 4th grade mathproblem. Wish me luck on this new adventure...

I'll be back soon to show you the giveaway:)
Pin It!

Diana Joy said...

Your layouts are fabulous... and yes; well, good luck with the home schooling and sorry the hubby is gone.

Sandy Huntress said...

Good for you for deciding to homeschool. It's not for the faint of heart, but well worth it.

I homeschooled my two sons from the time they were five on up. It was such a blessing to have that time with them and really get to know them. No crafts projects, no matter how fun, can replace that.

And, you'll be done before you know it (really!) and be looking back, so glad you took the time. :-)

Jen said...

I love the tutorials! My blog is just getting started, but I can't wait to showcase some of the flowers I've made.

Nicole said...

Beautiful work, Helen! Best of luck with the homeschooling! I SO wish that was something I was able to do for my kids- they just aren't being challenged at school.

I added your blinkie on my blog- I can't believe I hadn't already done it! Come on over!
