Celebrating My 6th Blogaversary with Candy

FYI, my blog candy is now closed.

Hiya peeps.   OMG, I can't believe 6 years have gone by since I started my blog.  And what a fun and exciting journey it continues to be.   I must thank many of you who share your inspiring creations on your blog, Facebook, and/or Pinterest.   Thank you also to those who visit my blog and leave sweet comments.  It sure keeps my crafting drive going full speed.  LOL

Thought I'd do something a little different this time.   I'll have 3 prize packages.  Each will be numbered 1, 2, or 3.  I'll have someone in my family randomly draw the 3 winners.  The first name pulled will get pkg. #1, 2nd name drawn will get pkg. #2, and the 3rd gets pkg. #3.

Here are pix of the prize packages:

Prize Pkg. #1

Prize Pkg. #2

Prize Pkg. #3

I welcome you in joining the celebration.  As usual, I'm keeping the "rules" easy-peasy.

1)  You must be a current follower of my blog.
2)  Leave a comment on this post and tell me at least one crafty item that is on your wish list for Christmas.
3)  One entry per person please.

Deadline is Sunday, November 29, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. (Hawaii Standard Time)

The winners will be posted shortly after the deadline.

Thanks again and good luck!!!!

A Mousy Christmas

We have a flash flood advisory on right now but no rain for several hours.  Well, that's a good thing because we sure had our share of rain recently.
