Because 50 is Nifty


I mean it…it really is.  Heck Provo Craft even has a cartridge called Nifty Fifties right?  Well, with my epically failed effort to get to 100 subscribers in my first 90 days, I learned a lesson…let’s reward littler steps along the way.  If you are subscribed to and reading my blog then you know how much I am ♥ing Verve stamps right?  If you’re not, you are probably missing out on some cool stuff (see…my subscribers are smiling and nodding I can feel it) and might want to consider a subscription.  It’s free…it notifies you when a new blog post is made, AND it’s even painless.  What more do you need…oh wait I know…maybe you need bribed enticed influenced…yeah influenced by blog candy?!?!?  Oh…ok I suppose I can accommodate you!  When this blog reaches 50 subscriptions, I will give one lucky winner their choice of either Verve set featured below:

And, if this happens on or before Valentine’s Day, I’ll select another winner and give them the other set.  How do you get entered to win:

  1. You must be a subscriber.  Enter your email address on the top left sidebar and hit the “sign me up” button.  Be sure to check your email to verify your subscription or you won’t be updated.  Check your SPAM folder, it often goes there.

That’s right, all people subscribed get a chance to win!  For a second chance, leave a comment on THIS post saying you’ve spread the word via your own blog, Facebook, Twitter, or whatever and I’ll enter your name twice!

Mystery meal turned candy

Sunday nights we usually have a mystery meal.  Basically it’s the designated night I choose to introduce my children to a new recipe.  Some flop, some not.  Tonight though, we did a fend for yourself so I turned what would be a mystery meal into mystery blog candy.

Here’s my dilemma…I get a lot of feedback on Facebook about thoughts and feelings on my blog, but I really want to see that feedback here!  When I had my blog at Blogger, I had 70 followers or so and then life just kinda happened and my blogs got neglected so I couldn’t ever get past 70 followers.  When I decided to start blogging again, I set up a new spot here at WordPress and now have only 5 subscribers.  Call me greedy, but I want more…LOTS more.  So…as I’ve been getting my SERIOUS craft on due to the homemade Christmas we’re doing this year, I’ve come across oodles of things I bought thinking “oh WOW I could do…..with this” but then never “did” and my storage space is pretty limited.  In addition, I’m having tons of fun spraying almost everything with my DIY glimmer mist so, if my goal for subscriber growth is met by the deadline,  I’ll throw in five 4 oz bottles of my DIY glimmer spray ~ Gold, Silver, Copper, Pearl White, and Misty Lavender because purple is my favorite color!!!  Keep in mind that a 2 oz bottle of Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels is about $7 a bottle!  You could get DOUBLE this amount FREE!  Can I get a Woot Woot?!?!?!?

Here’s a sneak peak of some of the things I’m looking to find a new home for:


This isn't even the beginning of the beginning!

And since I’m feeling pretty crafty, I might even make some fun items to throw in the box just because I can.  So…are you tempted yet?  I hope so…here’s the “fine print”:

I will be featuring a blog post with my favorite crafting tool besides my Cricut and ATG quite soon.  I want to know what YOUR other favorite tools are!  I know we all love our Cricuts and our ATG’s, but what else do you just ADORE and don’t think your life would be the same if you didn’t have it?  Receive one entry into my mystery blog candy giveaway just by telling me your favorite tool (remember it can’t be your Cricut or ATG).  Why stop there though…why not increase your odds of winning?

1.  Subscribe to this blog and get FIVE extra entries…yes I did just type FIVE!  (see I SERIOUSLY want more readers).  Take a look at the top left of the page…do you see where it says “Search This Blog”…directly under this is a window. Type you’re email in the box (or the email you want update notifications sent to) and hit the sign me up button.  That’s it…now whenever I post something you’ll get an email letting you know.

2.  Post a link to this giveaway on Facebook or your own blog and leave another comment letting me know and you’ll get another entry.

3.  Invite friends…one additional entry per person who says “Faithfule Creations (insert your name there) sent me!”  I may even send a special lil sumthin sumthin to the person who refers the most new subscribers.

That’s it…three easy ways to earn extra entries!  When I have 100 subscribers by December 23rd (my first 90 days at this spot),  5 bottles of DIY Glimmer Mist go into the pot.  And, if the goal is reached before then, I’ll make an extra 5 bottles…colors to be determined and yes, I’ll take your requests and do my best to accommodate them.  So, thinking positively that 95 more subscriptions will occur before Dec 23rd, one lucky winner will receive a blog candy package award valued at more than $150.   I guess now there are just two questions left to ask…are you subscribed and who do you know?
