It's my Party and I am celebrating with some BLOG CANDY!!

-CANDY IS CLOSED - THANK YOU! Winner will be announced in Sunday's post -
My birthday is coming... and I decided that was a great time to celebrate - and so I am offering up the "gift" for you! Yep it is BLOG CANDY TIME!!!

Here is my prize:
And so lets see what I have put together here... a little is new stuff I just went out and purchased and a few things are brand new that have been in my stash and need some love!While digging though one of my drawers a couple of weeks ago I found FOUR new Sugar Nellie images! Imagine that the poor things have never seen ink! They are all Rachelle Anne Miller, Duck in Boots, Lola with Bunny, Simon and Lola and Lola with Gift - all in the package with their adoption certificates - :0)

Then I went shopping...
I got two 4 x 6 DCWV Nana's Nursery stacks - one boy and one girl. (my two favorite card stacks)
I found these wonderful card bases & envelopes from K&Co. - recycled card stock in baby colors
One of my other favorites, Cloud 9 epoxy sentiment stickers.
And a Fiskars effervescent Border Punch -
And what would a blog candy be with out some ribbon? So I found this adorable baby carriage ribbon.. and another pink and white check ribbon...

I do hope you like all the goodies I have put together... they are some of my favorites and some that I would love see go to a home that will love them. Now what do you have to do to get this?

Well my "day" is August 15th - so let say it will end 8 pm (central time) on Saturday the 15th. My blog post on Sunday will be the winner! To qualify please leave me a comment on this post. Then please spread the word that I am growing another year older... LOL and that I have candy- you do not have to have a blog to qualify, but please spread the word where ever you chat.

Oh and one more thing.. in your comment...some of you may have read that Hubby has started our new addition to the house... my CRAFT ROOM... how about some ideas for paint colors!

Good Luck! and Thanks so much for visiting me -

Tracey said...

angel wishes tracey xxx

Jingle said...

I didn't leave you any paint color ideas! My suggestion is to go neutral...I had a room with black on the bottom and grey on top with bright white chair rail and it was great because it didn't reflect any color onto my work! It made it a nice, warm place to work! I loved it!

Lisa said...

Fabulous blog candy! I'd say a neutral too. One that matches your sweet donkeys maybe. :)

Redlady said...

Happy Birthday for the day
As for your craftroom. I think it should be decorated like a stable with lovely pictures of your donkeys on the walls. Then they will think it's their sunroom and can come and visit you when they get lonely

Happy Birthday to YOU! Wow you know how to celebrate with this sweet yummy candy. I would love to be the lucky stamper to play with all these goodies. I just love making baby cards and projects. Thanks so much for a chance.
How exciting to get a brand new stamping room. I can't wait to see it all fixed up....I bet you can't either. LOL
I would probably do it in a soft pastel colors and bright colors for the accents.
I posted your celebration here:

SannaS said...

Hi! And congratulations for your upcoming birthday! =)
Thanks for the chance for this great candy! YUM!
Hugs, SannaS
ooops, forgot to say that your craft room should be white, so you can decorate the walls with your own wonderful creations and tools etc. I think they would inspire you most in your new craft room!

Heidi Brawley said...

Wow!!! Your own craft room. That is a great gift. I am sooo jealous. lol!! Happy Early Birthday to you!!!!!!!!! Well I love red and white so that would by my suggestion on paint colors!!! Congrats again on your room and Have a VERY Happy Birthday too!! Hugs! Heidi

Shauna K said...

Yays, happy birthday!!! Hmmm... I would say to paint it either whatever your fav color(s) are or whatever colors relax or inspire you. I think the crafting room is a sanctuary of sorts, so whatever gets the mojo flowing and makes you feel at home is best :D

Selma said...

Happy Birthday Michelle. A new craft room is such a great birthday present. I think you should paint your room in a color that makes you feel happy and of course like others said, have pictures of your cute donkies on the wall. I will help spread the word about your blog candy.

Unknown said...

Hsppy Birthday! If you lived in Malta it would always be a public holiday on your day :P For your craft room, I would do one of the walls in a cheerful colour like yellow/light orange to help the inspiration to flow, while keeping the other walls white, but that's just me :)
Lovely candy, thanks for the chance to win!
Hugs, Louise

Tertia said...

What fab candy. Such a pity you only have a birthday once a year.
Happy birthday for the 15th.

Janiel/ janny said...

Michelle, Happy Birthday to you. A craftroom will be great fun for you and as for the colors. Well, anything you love to help keep the creative juices flowing. Is what I would say. Thanks for the chance at you candy.
many hugs, janny

stella said...

Goodness, how lucky you are to have a birthday and a new craft room. Love the photos of the donkeys and your blog. Keeping my fingers crossed to win this great candy. I would go with a very light mauve on the craft room walls, kinda like your blog background color.

Jacilynn said...

Happy Birthday Michelle! How exciting to get a new craft room. I would paint it Pink, cause I love pink and it makes me happy!
Super candy!

Fun Family Tips said...

#1) love the blog #2) Orange is supposed to naturally enhance creativity. Although not the favorite color of most, you may be able to find a shade that you like. I was bound and determined to find a shade of orange to work for my craft room and finally selected a very light (almost pastel orangy-pink) shade of orange which I now love (despite my natural hatred of orange :)

Leah l'Orange said...

WOO HOO for the craft room! this is fabulous (and i am envious)!

i'm with Jennifer above me about the colour orange... it's always inspiring (and my absolute favourite colour)! you seem to like bright, bold colours, so perhaps some orange and purple or yellow, with DONKEY TRIM! :) you'll have to post pics when it's all done! and ooohhh, what a WONDERFUL birthday gift.

so have a fab birthday, Michelle! my son is a Leo, too - August is a great month for birthdays! i have linked your candy up HERE... and have my fingers crossed, because i'd LOVE to win that yum!

ciao! :)


Penni said...

Hi Michelle

Happy Early Birthday.

So you're getting a craft room - you lucky lady!!! I think you should stick with a neutral colour, fresh and clean and without distraction.

FAB Candy you have on offer too - I'll put you a link on my sidebar.



Your birthday just happens to be my anniversary! We will be married 38 years on August 15.

Wish I could advise about color, but not knowing you that is hard to do - a suggestion though - look in your closet and find the color that you have the most of. That is probably the color that most inspires you and that you are comfortable with!

Happy Birthday!

Linda w said...

Happy almost birthday Michelle. As far as a color for your new stamp room, I would definitely go with something light to brighten up the room. I painted mine a real pastel pink just because I never had a pink room. Being the Mom of three boys their rooms were either blue or grey. I drew the line at ds wanting the walls painted black so his black lights would look cool. He got grey.

thanks much

Anonymous said...

Happy birthday for the 15th. I can't believe you had those stamps and nt even inked them up lol. How about a nice blue colour for your craftroom. Blue is supposed to boost creativity

Robin Brown aka Mrs Pup in NY said...

Happy Birthday coming Michelle. I love Birthdays, gives me a reason to celebrate with somebody :) I love the goodies you are giving away on your birthday. Hurray on the craftroom, I would want a nice yellow with stencilling I think. Yellow always makes a room bright. For a warmer, calmer feeling some shades of brown with maybe a little ink trim. I would have a hard time choosing myself, I love alot of colors. I added you to my blog and I will tell my groups too. I hope everyday before your birthday is wonderful too.

Chrissy said...

Awesome blog candy!! Hope you have an amazing birthday. Lucky you to be getting a new craft favorite colors are aqua, so that would be my color choice for the room. Thanks for sharing your creations with us!

Marla said...

Happy Birthday to you!!!! What awesome goodies you have for a lucky winner. I have been wanting some magnolia images but havent been lucky enough to get any. Hope your day is wonderful!!! ENjoy that birthday!!

Unknown said...

Colors. Hmm, I've been debating this problem myself. lol. Can't wait to see what you decide. Good luck!

Pamela said...

Happy Birthday. Thanks for a chance for some blog candy and thanks for being so generous.

I am terrible at colors, but I am sure you will come up with something you like. There are so many choices out there.

Have a wonderful day.

GLOANN said...

What a neat bundle of goodies! I am expecting a new grandbaby and some of this would be so perfect. As for color in your new craft room, I love a good neutral shade so I can use whatever decor items suit me at that point in time.

Archies Mum said...

I'm just starting out so mine wouldn't be so elaborate a party but you have an awesome collection!

Can't wait to see who is the winner!

I love your mascot, Raffie. Ours is Happy the hippo.

Meg Farris said...

Hope you have an awesome birthday! Your blog candy looks awesome. I would love to paint a craft room the new Crushed Curry color from Stampin Up on 3 walls, with the Melon color on one wall. I just love those colors together. You will have to post pics of your room when it is done!

Jessie said...

Great candy! Here's my link . I redecorated my room in July and I chose green . After 15 years yellow I'm still getting used to it, but every day I like it more and more. Good luck with the painting! Greetings from Belgium, Annelies

Donna said...

hugs Donna

PattiM said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! How sweet to offer candy to everyone....
Color.. I love pink and black. I figure your scrap room is your haven so paint it the color YOU want and make it as frilly as YOU want. Also pumpkin and cricket green is pretty Hope you have a great bday!!


(Pattie's passion)

I Scrap So All Moments Are Remembered!

Chrisd said...

You're having a birthday...Happy Birthday to you...Congrats!
What delicious "treats" you have for one of us. Those stamps are extra yummy!
I put your offer on my blog(chrisd-simplethingsinlife.blogspot), in the treats area..
As for a color for your "special room" ...What about Sea Glass. It will make you rested and feel like you are visiting the beach as you work. A little touch of Paradise!

Janet said...

Have a wonderful Birthday, I love all the items you have for someone to win.
I think a light sage green would be wonderful for your craft area.

Wendy Swenne said...

Happy birthday!!!! Have a great day.

And how sweet of you to give away such a cute candy!!

Put a link on my blog.



Scrappinology said...

a it goes in my bestest singing voice!


Hope your day is special!

Let's see....what color to paint your room....hummmm I would say a color that you find cheery. I think bright colors help me to be more creative and others find soft colors more inspirational....I think it is kinda a personal choice and the first color that pops into your head is the one you should go with!

Off to spread the word now!!!


Nunt said...

Happy upcoming b-day Michelle!

Unused Sugar Nellie stamps in your drawers, woman you must be mad! Oh well, I won't complain since you are offering them to be adopted - I sure would give them a loving and inky home ;)

About your craft room: you should go visit a home improvement store and stock up on paint samples - they are awesome to punch out flowers etc once you've decided on the color! :D I know it's a bit boring, but I would go for white though - gives the best natural light in the room. And you can always put up your own art to spice things up!


Ellis said...

Congrats in advance! =)
I would use green if I had a craft room and some creative quote nearby! =)
Would love to win the blogcandy, will write about it on my blog.! =)
Hugs, Elenor

Kristin said...

Happy birthday-in-a-few-days! :D
I love the candy you're offering to celebrate it! It's really lovely, and I really understand why those are some of your favourites! :D

Colour on the walls... I'd go for something light - not neccesarily (oooh, way too long since I spelled that word! Can't remember the right way!) white, but something in that direction. :)
Hope you'll show us some pictures when it's done! ;)

Harley Dee said...

Happy early birthday!! And a new craft room sounds exciting! Paint is a color that excites you, or makes you happy. Something that will make you want to spend lots of time in there :)

pysselsara said...

Happy birthday!!! What a yummy blog candy.
I would paint it in soft pink.

Betty J Schaub said...

Happy Birthday Sweet Lady! I can just hear the donkeys' serenade...
YeeHaw, YeeHaw, YeeHaw. Everyone chimes in cause it's Momma's Brithday. Have a wonderful day!

Di said...

Happy Birthday Michelle, Thanks for the chance to win this FAB candy! i have spread the word!
Oh i would go neutral in your room, some creams or even white for the light!

Hugs Di xxxx

Lene said...

Adrina said...


Happy Birthday.
A great candy!!

I have a tearoom in the garden and that's yellow and brown.
I think it's very nice. Yellow is sunny and a happy colour and it matches beautiful with brown earth colours.

I put a link in my sidebar for your candy.

Amanda P (Australia) said...

Happy Birthday (August is the best month). As for paint colours I have a wall in my craft room with a very large cork board that have swatches of all my cardstock on it (with some of my favourite DSP). The colours are all arranged randomly and I find this inspires me to try unusual colour compinations.


Sheri said...

Happy Birthday! I love your candy and would love to have a chance to win it. Lucky you - a craft room to call your own! I would paint it cranberry and cream if it were mine!

Darla said...

mmmmmmmmmmm.... I feel a sweet tooth coming on!!! :)
I just emailed the link to my crafty friends!!
Happy Birthday (early right now I know but figure I'd better say it now so I don't miss it!!)

As for a scrap room colour I say pick your "old stand-by" colour or patterned paper and choose colours from that, if they're colours you gravitate to whenever you craft then you must really like them!

Nikki said...

I think it would be nice to have a craft room in a light pale Yellow that always feels warm and sunny and then hang up pictures that inspire you to get creative (12*12 designer papers all framed up .. we all have some we have a hard time cutting into lol)
I have posted your Candy Here in my sidebar
Thanks You For the Chance
Huggs ♥ Nikki C ♥

Vanja said...

Diamond Doll said...

Alysabeth said...

My favorite craft room was Soft Sky with Dark wood floors and white accents:o) I loved it best now my room is River Rock with Black accents. Good luck with my candy and your room.

Very good to have just our corner, I suggest a light green color to your song and your blog candy is plentiful and very beautiful. Kisses

Denise ~ Paper Ponderings said...

What incredible blog candy. I love, love, love that DCWV "boy" pad. I made a really pretty coffee card with it and I would so love to have another (and all of your yummy stuff). I'll post it on my blog on the left side. Let's see...I think a clean creamy ivory with brown embellishments...some flourishes and some words like "create" on the wall. Oooooh...gorgeous!

RDH said...

Happy Birthday to you!!!! I will put a link to your candy on my blog. I am going to be doing a mini baby book for MIL....these would be wonderful!!
I love purple!!! If I were you...that's what I would use.

Rosanne said...

Hi Michelle--Happy Birthda to you...I do hope your day is filled with sunshine and laughter! How nice to be getting a craft room--the perfect gift! I recently had my craft room redone, and had my hubby paint it a beautiful beige color. It doesn't clash with anything I have in there! Best of luck to you in choosing your colors!

I have linked your site to my blog, and will gladly spread the word of your wonderful blog candy. Thank you for the chance to win--I will keep my fingers crossed!

Tina said...

Mary Lou Kemp said...

holy moly that some stash for blog candy....and a Happy Birthday as well. I'm totally jealous that you will have a brand new stamp room. I so want to have a special place to work on cards and scrapbooking. Right now I have taken over my dining room table and the whole room has my stamping supplies in who can make cards when you don't know which box has what! Anyway, thanks for the great birthday giveaway.

Tracey said...

Well, first, let me wish you a happy early birthday!! One day earlier and you could have shared your day with my baby girl!! :)

Fabulous candy. Thanks for the chance to win! :)

As for paint colours - really if you could see my house you would not be asking me about colour choices. I have pretty drab neutral walls. I am waiting for the day when I can have a 'grown up' house that is decorated with real furniture and everything! Good luck in your colour choosing! :)

Ms. Cheryl said...

I will always say PINK !!!! My craft room is pink and it's my happy place. I would love the candy you have put together, especially the stamps!! WINK WINK, ms.cheryl

Anonymous said...

Happy Birthday! Thanks for the opportunity to have some blog candy. I would paint my craft room a color from the Stampin Up! catalog because then you would have some great decorative paper to choose from to make some cool accessories for your room (Maybe a Big M with designer paper on it, frame with your favorite photo and the mat out of a piece of designer paper) The opportunities are endless. Have fun.

StampingJan said...

Happy Birthday!! Thanks for offering the fantastic blog candy! I would paint my craft room a pretty shade of green or turquoise, something Martha Stewart-ish maybe, definately cheerful. That is awesome that you are getting a new craftroom. I hope it's ready for your Birthday!
Janice C. in NY

Anonymous said...

Happy Birthday to you and congratulations with your new craft room.. I would take a shade of white or beige - that way it´s easier to change the colour "on the wall" with posters, pictures or your beautiful cards ;-)
I don´t have a blog, but thanks for the chance to win anyway..

crafty amy said...

Hiya Michelle,
Wow this is an amazing amount of candy you are so generous I will be putting a link in my side bar for you as soon as fininshed commenting here :D
As for paint I know it sounds boring but for a creative space I love the idea of white with a load of black framed bright prints. I think the white would make all the colourfull embelishments stand out on the shelves :)

Penny said...

Great candy! Thanks so much for this chance to win it!!!!

Ive posted a link in my sidebar here: and I'm your newest follower.

Um... as for the paint color, I'm a BIG fan of Blue... or Purple. Any shade will do... lol. I wish I could paint my craft room but we're in military housing and anything we do we have to undo when we move, so I'm not dealing with the offwhite walls. lol. If I could though, I'd definately go with blue!

Happy birthday for 15th, hope you have a fabulously fantastic day - as for colour scheme for your new craft room - what about lemon and white? Very crisp and clean looking and will refelect the light making the room appear larger than it is and spacious.


Mary Duffek said...

Happy Birthday! And a new craft room...I am so trying not to be jealous...LOL!!(just teasn')

I love the color green....any green really and they say green is a soothing/calming color...not sure if it's the perfect thing for a craft room though..LOL!

Thanks for a chance to win some uber yummy candy!

Niki said...

How generous to offer such great blog candy! Hope your birthday is fabulous.

I think a sunny yellow would be a fun craft room color, maybe with lots of pics of your "critters" to keep you company while you're crafting.

Enjoy your special day,

Wishing you a happy birthday. I just did a room in light-medium blue (with a gray undertone) and brilliant white trim on the moldings and turned out really good (unfortunately it was not for a new craft room). Thanks for a chance at your generous candy.

Cheryl Walker said...

Happy Birthday early Michelle, just had to tell you that your birthday is the same day as my Grandmas, but she was born in 1916 aug 15th. Anyways love all your blog candy and someone will be a happy crafter:)


Regina said...

Grace said...

Well first of all... Happy Birthday! I'm celebrating an anniversary on the 14th... wouldn't this be a great surprise!!! I LOVE these stamps and would soooo love to give them a new warm home with lots of love! Your candy is most generous! Now on to the craft room.... my hubby is slowing working on one for me too... and I plan to use a yellowish tan... if you know what I mean... it's a neutral, but it's a warm tan, almost a touch of gold. I love that as a backdrop for ANY piece of art you put on it and it feels warm and cozy. Just my thoughts! I will post your candy in my side bar! Thanks for the chance to win, o and by the way... I am offering some pretty nice candy now too you might want to check out! Thanks again!

KarenB said...

Happy almost-birthday! Lucky you for getting a fabulous craft room. I'd go a light colour, maybe a soft cream or something that complements your furniture and any artwork that you want to display. Light colours also work will at night for brightening a room and reflecting available light.

Your blog candy is so generous! I've linked you up on my sidebar and I'm keeping my fingers crossed :)

Jodi said...

Michelle I hope you have a wonderful birthday! What a fantastic bunch of candy you are giving away to celebrate (which would be very welcome to take up residence in my craft room). As for painting, I chose a yellow for my craft room (since I don't get any sunlight in it I thought it was a good choice to brighten it up). I've linked your giveaway on my blog. Thanks for the chance to win :)

Happy Birthday! Great candy, thank you for sharing your work and the donkey pictures. I think a shade of medium blue would make a great craft room. Texas Cropper

Julie said...

Happy Birthday ! And thank you for letting us celebrate it with you !

This is such an awesome blog candy and I have several new birth cards to make so would be perfect for me!

My job is a painter, decorator and interior designer ! I would suggest a light colour, not white. I love Farrow & Ball paint for the chalky texture, but it's of no use if you have children!

Slipper Satin is a lovely neutral colour a little bit between off white with a grey/green tinge !

I also saw one of the bloggers had cut out using vinyl and her cricut an inspirational saying about crafting and put it above her window. It looked amazing !

Sorry to go on - this is a passion as well as card making!

Good luck with the room - don't forget to post before and after pictures!


Ellen (aka ScrapStampnMama) said...

An early HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! to you and congrats on the new craft favorite color is blue so I would paint it in soft shades of blue. Thanks for the chance to win blog candy too! Linked to my sidebar for you.
