Mini Friendship Blog Hop! blog candy give a way, Skittles update and more!!

Hello Crafty friends!! We had our last day of school this past Thursday and we are officially on summer break!! Whoot Whoot!! I am looking forward to not having such a strict routine this summer. Looking ahead we already have a jam packed summer but as always I am hopeful that crafting will be included in there!!

I have a few updates to share, first off,  so sorry that my visits have been so few these last few weeks! Most of you know I am raising two young teens... and well.... enough said right?? So my time in front of the computer is limited, but with summer here I am planning on getting back into a better routine. I truly appreciate everyone that continues to stop over and takes the time to comment, I know how busy everyone is these days!

Please join the great challenges that are offered on the Design Teams that I am on; 3 Girl Jam and Docerela. They both offer up fun and easy challenges with prizes to be won!

I will be releasing a set of new skittle colors this summer!

 Here was my last update:

I am completely sold out of the Summer and Desert Skittle Release. I will not be re-creating the glittered colored options so I am re-releasing a new Summer/Desert Package with similar colors. They are now available for sale below or you can see additional options in my shop!

I love these colors!

Desert/Summer Package Release:
Colors include: Denim, Bottle, Terra, Pebble, Raspberry, Clover
6 Colors for $6.00 Free Shipping

New Release options

On a personal note, thank you Diana for being such an amazing friend! I am very blessed to have someone like you in my life!

  1. have a great weekend my friend the selfie is so funny looking. Hugs Diana.

  2. Am already a follower of both of you. Always enjoy your posts. To me a friend can be a brother, a sister, and even a parent when need be. Being there in good times and bad.

  3. That is so cool that you guys got to meet in person! I'm very happy that I follow both of your great blogs and number you among my best bloggy friends, you guys are super. What does friendship mean to me? Well, I think it's having a connection with someone, whether you know them in person or online, where you look forward to seeing/hearing from that person, they brighten your day and just make your overall life a better place! The number of friends you have is not as important as the genuine-ness (is that a word??) of the friendship, I am super lucky to have a small but wonderful group of truly supportive friends in my life. Hugs to all!

  10. I just came from Diana's blog and had to check out yours! I'm your newest followr 1070 - wowzers! So happy you two got to meet - I love your photos! Your skittles look awesome so count me in! Friendship means to me - someone who's always there for you, has your back, and understand what you're going through, sometimes even without saying a word. You can go for months without seeing them but you pick up right where you left off! Have a wonderful weekend!

  11. Happy that you two got to meet up in person!
    I met a wonderful friend online as well, many years ago. She and I had connected online and we finally got to meet at a stamp convention in Carson CA. It was so fun! We had spoken on the phone from our hotel rooms and I discovered she had a southern twang and accent. Later that day, over the rubber pit at the Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers booth, I heard that twang, turned and asked, "Are you Cyndi?". That was our first face to face meeting!
    I am a blog follower of both our your blogs already! Thanks for the chance at a prize!

  12. I've been a follower of Diana's for some time and I'm a newbie follower here, so it's great to meet you. I've met some of my closest friends through blogging and or social media and I'm so glad you two got to meet in person :)

  13. Oh how fun for all of you!
    So glad the timing worked out for you all.

  14. great story on your meeting. I have never had many girlfriends growing up until I got into scrapping (which was after my girls were grown up) and have made the best from this great hobby. I love making cards the most.

  15. It is so cool that you could both meet!
    To me friendship means having a person you can tell anything to and they listen, truly listen. They are also there through your ups and downs, supporting you all the way!

  16. How fun to get to meet up after several years!

  17. How great to finally meet. I give you and your daughters a lot of credit. My sister in law wouldn't eve come see my Mom and myself when we had a 6 hour layover in Vancouver. Have a wonderful weekend and a great summer with your kids. Where about in Arizona do you live? Who knows maybe we can get together next winter when we come down. LOL!
