1st day of the giveaway!

Today's giveaway is for some ultra cute Valentine's tags! It is Sunday here but for some reason says Saturday!
Don't forget to leave your name or e-mail so I can contact you if you're the winner!

My Mother loved to travel, and so growing up was kind of an adventure for me! Well when I was about 5 or 6, we had a Volkswagen pop-up camper, and we traveled a lot! My Mom & Dad would sleep in the back, my brother got the cot in the pop-up & I slept in the cot above the driver's seat!

Now that I have my own family, I really want my children to see the beauties of America! Mt. Rushmore, the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, the Rockies. I remember being in the Redwoods, and driving through a tree! Dec 9th when I was in NYC, I hopped on the subway and went to ground zero. It's one thing to see it on TV, but to be there in person made me speechless! I also walked across the street to Battery Park so I could get a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty. I got a little choked up because I was reminded about the things we Americans take for granted.. Liberty and Freedom! My Mother was a Swedish immigrant, and my Father a Canadian immigrant so it really hits home with me!

So my question for you is, how many states have I been to? And tell me where you have been, and what your favorite place is.

SUNDAY starts my 10 day giveaway!! Yeah!

I'm really excited about it! I was out shopping last night, for yummy goodies! I'm a sucker for those sales! I stayed up til 2:45a.m. working on NEW designs! WoW! What delicious paper I found! My favorite part of Paper Treats is designing! There's something about creating with paper, ribbon, buttons & other treasures! I can't wait to share all the Paper Treat goodies!

On Sunday and the days following, I will ask a question and possibly give a hint if it's a little tricky! Everyone will have a chance to win regardless if you guess right. For my high tech picking system....I'll put eveyones name in a bowl & have 1 of my 3 children pick the winner!

Keep in mind, We go to church Sunday. Getting lunch together after church will take some time. I probably won't check in here till 2 pm Michigan time. Feel to leave your answers, and the next day I will announce the winner here!

The card I made for Martha Stewart

Just listed this in the store! Nice and happy for spring!

The funny thing is, I ran to the store to buy MS paper & created this just minutes before running out the door to go meet Martha!

Sometimes I create well under pressure, but usually my head fills with ideas as I try to go to sleep. I like to keep a notebook next to my bed, so I can quickly jot down mental pictures! To bad I can't just snap my fingers & make it appear! worked for Mary Poppins hehehe!

Happy New Year!

I decided to start a blog today to keep you up to date on my newest paper treat adventures. I'd like to do promotions, contests, freebies etc. from here. Be patient as I learn the ropes of blogging!

I'd like to start a mailing list as well, so let me know if you are interested. I'll probably send an e-mail once a month.
