A Few of My Favorite Things - A Giveaway!


Blogger has informed me that this is my 400th post. Holy.cow. What in the world have I been posting about? Oh yeah, cookies. And lots and lot of paper and glue. Oh, and there were those posts about the monsters. Brad probably made it in there somewhere as well. I am sure he would be thrilled.
In honor of my 400th post, I have a giveaway just for you! I dug through my stash of stuff and pulled out some of my favorites. All of my favorite brands are in here; Basic Grey, Cosmo Cricket, Pink Paislee and Jenni Bowlin to name a few. I also included some Wilton Valentine's Day sprinkles because, let's face it, you can never have too many sprinkles, some Valentine's Day M&Ms, because everything is cuter when packaged for a holiday and of course, a few Bath & Body Works lip glosses. Oh, and since Venti Chai Lattes are not exactly mailable (spell check says that is a word, but it doesn't look like one) I included a $5.00 Starbucks gift card so you can pick out your very own poison.

So... you want a shot at winning a box of my favorite things? All you have to do is tell me what your favorite things are right now. Are you reading something amazing? A new band that you are obsessed with? Let's hear it! What are your favorite things right now? You have until Monday, January 31st, 2011 at 9:00am CST to enter. If you want an extra chance at winning, just send your friends this direction and have them include your name when they post. I will post the winner Monday afternoon!

This post actually made me teary eyed. I miss scarpbooking so much (everything has been packed away since July 08 - I thought I was moving - long story).

My favorites right now - Michael Buble (I actually love him.. seriously!), Leonardo's stinky formula breath (I can't get enough of this and if I could bottle it I would), the way Miabella reads her books and the smell in the air when it snows.

In paper crafting, I'm loving:

In reading, I've renewed my love for the Dresden Files, by Jim Butcher.

In food, I'm trying to find a good reason to make a batch of hot cocoa from scratch in my slow cooker. The recipe I found uses chocolate chips!

Congratulations on that 400th post! How exciting, and thanks for having this giveaway. Angie Blom sent me over!

I am obsessing over a new technique I discovered for coloring with my Copics. I'm not very good at using them, but this new way I tried works so much better for me! So now I've been over here this evening coloring away on all sorts of digis I had printed up! Of course, I'm still grooving on the McDonald's $1 sweet iced tea - that's been my weakness for a couple of years now!

Betty Kimmel said...

myheartsinlynchburg said...

Estee- I guess I'm the only guy following your blog. I'm really into my kids right now.. having a blast with them at 10 & 8 years old. Just finished reading Velvet Elvis and trying to get back in the songwriting groove; all the while waiting impatiently for the weather to allow me to go golfing!

LianeZ said...

400, wow congrats! Favorite things: Sizzix, paper to play with all my Sizzix stuff, All Tim Holtz - especially his Sizzix stuff, and finishing my craft area so I have more room to play with all my Sizzix stuff especially my eClips!

Gina L said...

Estee, you are so generous! My absolute favorite thing right now is electricity. I kid you not. I have a new appreciation for it after two days of scooping out my sump pump by hand and carrying more than 30 buckets of water up the stairs and outside to be dumped. Oh, and doing all of this while my house was about 45 degrees and I had two cats wondering why I would not sit with them and warm them up. Yeah, electricity is GOOD. And now I am going to add a bit more to the fund my electric company has. I already give to it each month, but I'm giving a little more...wow, you never realize how awesome something is until it isn't there.

Congrats on 400 posts!

Lal said...

Glad to see you back and blogging :) My fave things right now? Miguel, Mikey, Elijah and our dog Max :)

Jenny said...

Michelle said...

Sure have missed you!!! I am off to buy some Reese's Peanut butter cups later this morning!!! A big congrat's on 400 posts!!!! My favorite things... watching movies with Britty.

Tax office cooking has started up again...making some of your yummy recipes for them again this year!! ;) I will post something on my blog too. I hope you have a fantabulous weekend!!

patti west said...

hi Estee! I found you through Sara Zenger's blog and am so glad I did! I am a new follower. :) What an awesome give-away this is!! My fave stuff is sunshine!!!! That and the band Sugarland, gingerbread flavored coffee, and Cadbury crunchy shell Easter eggs (I know it's early, but a co-worker already gave me a little bag, which I, in turn, inhaled). Also, I am stoked about the new stuff coming out by jillibean soup. thanks again!! :)

Deb K said...

Congrats on your accomplishment. I was directed to your page by Sara Zenger... My favorite thing right now is the awesome ebay seller that accepted a low bid on a camera to replace the one that broke last week. It's so nice when people pay it forward... I simply explained that I realized the screen on my camera was cracked when I was headed out to purchase a semi formal dress for my daughter. As a single mom, and fellow scrapper, I was devasted that 1) I had to spend money on a new camera and 2) I may miss taking pics of this event. She accepted a bid at $60 less than posted price to help me out as she has been there herself. Not only did I win this awesome camera, but it will arrive before the semi-formal, so I can have memories of this event. I guess my favorite thing right now is knowing that there are good people left out there!

Susan said...

Hey there, I haven't seen your blog roll up lately and I was so happy to see it. What's my fav thing lately CROPS!!! Having 7 kids and some with really hard disabilities I haven't really been out and about to any crops since the kids were little. I am also obsessed with my new ATG gun and my Slice that I got for Christmas.

Well Estee, I have missed reading your blog and hope that you and your family are all doing well.

QC Kelsey said...

Congratulations on your 400! Sara from One Day at a Time sent me. I agree that this is a truely drool worthy (hee hee) giveaway! Wow! My favorite things right now ... Urgh. I don't even know. I've been SO busy struggling through a few university courses that I've had no time for fun stuff. My doggy! Hee hee. I love combos of pink and black or brown and pink ... I love detailed layered altered items (or cards or los), I am loving my ATG I got for Christmas (even though it's not the pink one), and my new Flip HD video camera. And as always - anything Coca-Cola is definitely my favorite!!
