No trick...just a treat!




HAPPY FRIDAY!! Another EDIT!!

Lots of comments...LOTS of prizes. Keep them coming. 150 will be easy!!


And, for the FIRST person to comment on what link I added to my blog YESTERDAY...a special prize...A CHIPBOARD KEYCHAIN from MAYA ROAD!!!! These are to die for CUTE!!! FIRST person with the right answer WINS!!!


Start hunting!! I'll be back in a bit to check...

Wendy



Thursday 7PM edit...
WOW!!! You guys are amazing. looks like Rick will be pulling 3 lucky names for 3 MAYA ROAD prizes. Keep it up...150 is attainable. We're at 113 now!! THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wendy


Another edit...due to this question from MARIE..
Can we comment again, to get the count up to 150?

Ok...I'll do that...BUT, if you are posting for the second time...you NEED to tell us what Maya Road product is @ the top of your "wish list". What do you not currently own, but want REALLY bad!! Fair enough??
Wendy


Edited Thursday November 1st @ 8:30 am...
WOW!! I'm impressed with the wonderful turnout!! THANKS SOO VERY MUCH for the huge response!!
Looks like I better get going on the second prize package!!

I have read every comment & it makes me laugh that so many commenters couldn't choose just ONE Maya Road product. Believe me, I'm in the same boat, which explains why I'm in HEAVEN being on the design team.

Ok...here's the next goal...Get the comments up to 150 & I'll have Rick draw 3 names!!! Yes...that's 3 Maya Road goodie packages...tell all your friends!

I'm off to play with some of those goodies myself!!
Remember...DO SOMETHING CREATIVE EVERY DAY!!
Wendy







Happy Halloween & HAPPY GRAND OPENING of my blog!!

All the Maya Road goodies in the photo above will be given to one LUCKY poster. I made the art journal (or grocery list keeper) especially for this give away, using (of course) my favorite Maya Road chipboard blossoms and scroll. Look closely & you'll see the stamped flowers, which are from the journey east-primrose clear stamp set. At the top, you'll see my new addiction...Velvet Ric Rak...it's yummy!
The coffee cup stain is a stamp from Stamper's Anonymous...It's Tim's design. The herringbone stamp that I used on the scroll is also from Stampers Anonymous.

Here's the scoop...
Sign in and tell me your favorite Maya Road product. It's SIMPLE!! Rick will draw the lucky winner first thing on Monday morning. If you DON'T win...blame him!!

EDITED @ NOON...Since it's going so well...if we hit 100 comments, I'll give a second cool prize. Tell your friends!!!

Have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!!!!
Wendy

Wendy-I would have to say all the products are wonderful, but the chipboard books are my favorite. I buy them by the dozens for future projects. I love working with anything made from chipboard. Scotch gluestick makes it so easy to add delicious papers!

Maybe this is a bit old school, but I love the MR ribbons & ribbon charms. Thx for doing this! Your blog is full of fun!!!

Well to be honest with you I love it all but I have to say I love the MR bird. We have a Brittany Spaniel (our little bird dog) and I think of her when I swee these birds! Soooo cute. Happy Halloween to you also!

hmmm, favorite.....used to be anything chipboard, then it was anything ribbon, now it's anything sheer. I keep telling C & D that I'll go work for them. LOL!

Shelli said...

Choosing one fave is too hard. I adore the ribbons and chip flowers equally-- and insanely! What a great RAK! Huge congrats on your new blog!

Kath W said...

Cute giveaway! So hard to choose just one favorite...it'd have to be the Maya Road chipboard books.

Farmgirl said...

I think my favorite Maya Road product has to be the chipboard blossoms. In the last few days I've seen several very clever ideas using the blossoms and am very amazed at their versatility.

SANDIE MALLON said...

Beautiful RAK goodies!!! I ordered some Maya Road product for my Christmas Projects, so they are my current faves: I will be using the Sheer 5 ring tab books; Sheer crown coaster albums; scallop coasters and box; and the secret box! I'm bummed out though.. my online source is out of the desktop calendars & the bird chipboard... RATS!!! I also love the ribbon.. I guess I am among the 'anything Maya Road'.

Sarah C. said...

Congrats! I just started blogging myself. :) As for your question - it's hard to pick one favorite. But if I have to, I think it's the Sheer Collection.

Clockwork_Cat said...

Hi! I think this is a lovely thing to do on your behalf; and thank you for the encouragement to share my favorite Maya product:
Which must be the chipboard in vineyard, antique keys and scroll. I would LOVE to distress them, and stick them all over an AI'd Tea Break Tin. What a cute purse that could be!!!

Chelsea said...

Well, I have to say that I just recently discovered Maya Road products! (I know, where have I been, right?? :) ) I LOVE the variety of chipboard albums! I just finished my first binder album of my dd about a week or so ago! I am really happy with the way it turned out. Awesome blog! I love it and all the information on it! What an awesome "treat" too!!! :) Thanks for the opportunity. Congrats to the lucky winner!
