Heart Candy is Back!

Heart Candy is back. This week's heart candy is a CTMH acrylix stamp set called Simple Stitches.


To win is simple. What's your New Year's Resolution? It doesn't have to be anything serious, it could be a crafting resolution. Mine is to finish my baby's one year album once and for all and to use up the paper I have (or at least some of it!) before buying more! Just leave your comment here by midnight Tuesday and I will use random.org to pick a winner on Wednesday, January 9.

Cindy, my resolution is to finish up the unfinished projects from last year - the scarves half knit, the scrapbooks for the grandkids, etc. I also want to try new things - push that creative envelope! Thanks, Chris

My resolution is to lose 20 pounds... I'm down 28 pounds right now... so I have to keep going!

Melissas said...

Happy New Year! One of my resolutions is to spend more time with friends. It's too easy to get wrapped up in work and stuff and miss them! Great blog candy, btw.

Cindy said...

One of my crafty goals for 2008 is to use up all of my fabric before I buy more.

Thanks for the cool blog candy!

Tricia said...

I have a list of projects to complete fully this year. Some are partially finished like cross-stitch projects and quilts. But I have SO much and need to use it instead of buying new stuff!!

Goals (not resolutions):

1.) blog at least weekly on my own new blog

2.) more scrapbooking/cardmaking -- at least 2 to 3 times per week

3.) walk at least 25 miles every 2 weeks

We'll see how far I get!! :)

Jan Scholl said...

I want to run a marathon in the fall. and for something not serious--I want to run a marathon next month (just so I can go somewhere warm) Mardi Gras sounds good.

Happy New Year Cindy! What sweet candy to start of the New Year. Count me in on this sweet stamp set. A couple of my resolutions are:
1. Do some challenges

Thanks for a chance.

I would have to say that mine is to make sure that I start working on my sons scrapbook a little at a time and not letting all of those pictures build up and not know when they were taken.

Rita said...

My New Years resolution is to set aside at least 1 or 2 days a week to do some scrapbook pages, I've been lacking in that department since I started stamping 7 months ago. I need to work on my daughter's engagement book, which will be everyting leading up to the wedding. I want to give this book to her the morning of her wedding in July. So I need to get my butt in gear!

nettystamps said...

I want to get more scrapping done. I used to be alot more productive in that area until I discovered the wonderful art of stamping. I still scrap, it's my first love, but cardmaking (stamping) is closer to instant gratification... LOL....
Anyway I admire your resolution to use your existing paper before purchasing more...you must be very determined and have a wonderfully STRONG will, I know I would fail miserably at that one!!! LOL

Happy New Year to you and your family!

Jaime said...

I am a lurker and I'm coming out of the closet to comment. :-)

My resolution is to try to craft only after I've done other responsibilities... "try" is the key word... :-)

canben said...

My resolutions are to scrap/stamp more, lose weight, catch up on my son's scrapbook (hence #1), and build my business!

paulaquiltgirl said...

My New Year's resolution is to used to 1/2 of my Basic Grey stash before buying anymore!!! That's a lot of LOs and cards, so wish me luck.

Thanks

Linda SS said...

I don't generally like making a resolution because I have never been serious about them and forget about them soon after. But I do like your idea to use up my paper before buying more. I could really benefit from this one as I have a hard time resisting all the pretty papers they come out with & it is not only costly, but I'm running out of room to store it:)

Mandiannie said...

I'm only making resolutions that I can keep this year. Like make a scrapbook for DH. Finish 50 thanks you cards for sisters wedding. Things like that.
I hope to lose a few pounds, but I'm not trying all that hard. I'm hoping to just let it happen.

HeyHeyPaula said...

My New Year's resolution is to eat healthier and to exercise regularly. my crafting resolution is to use up things that I have before buying more! Thanks for the chance to win some yummy blog candy.

Tejal said...

Hi Cindy, Happy new year...great Candy as always..
My new year resolution is to make cards and actually post them..not think about posting them..
And the other is to set mini goals for every month instead of one resolution for the entire year..

foodpartyfun said...

Wow...how cute is this stamp set?! I am starting the new year using what stamping "stuff" I already own instead of buying more to hoard away. Also, I am on a mission in 2008 to send out more RAK's to brighten other's days. Thanks for sharing!

Nikki said...

my resolution is organize, organize, organize!!!! I'm tired just thinking of it!!! LOL {SMILES}

Val said...

Well, I have 2 main resolutions this year: 1. Do more stamping - I'm going to try and stamp at least one thing a week. This would be a great improvement over the last 2 years as I only stamped a couple of times last year. 2. Exercise 30 minutes a day at least 5 times a week. I've given up on the losing weight one, but maybe this will accomplish 2 things!

Deb said...

I hadn't thought of this as a real resolution but I am planning to do more scrapbooking this year and after a tip from a blogging pal I intend to make 10 xmas cards each month so that next xmas I will be all done by early December! this is a challenge on SCS!
Happy New Year!

April Driggers said...

My resolution is to lose a few pounds and then try for a 2008 baby ...Hopefully it will be as easy as it sounds !!!!

Paula said...

My resolution this year is to be prepared and have a homemade card for every occasion. I want to give all my friends and family cards on time. I never seem to get things done like that lately and this year I am going to do my best to get it done.

dd2njoy said...

I gave up on resolutions,I'm going
to call them goals now,lol.
I want to get more organized in my stamp room and make 3 to 4 cards a week so I have cards in advance. I had some cards last year but never enough.
Thanks for the chance at your awesome candy!!

Karen Gladney said...

I have to lose the extra pounds that I have on me. MY weight is holding me back from too many things and this summer I want to be able to do more.

Good luck to me... this is gonna be hard.

Good luck to you all on your resolutions.

Cheers!

Happy New Year! My New Year's Resolution is to finish my son's first birthday scrapbook. (He just turned 3!) I've been working on it, so hopefully it's a goal I can keep!

Julie Mutch said...

Hi Cindy,

Well, now that I've lost 86 lbs, I need to do some serious toning, so I guess that's my New Year's Resolution, to actually hit the gym instead of just wishing the extra would disappear on it's own! lol :)

Thanks for your generosity and for the chance to win your yummy heart candy.

Hope you're having a great weekend.

Hugs,
Julie

My new year's resolution is to get all of my stamps inventoried. Considering that I lost count after 1,000 I am in for a big undertaking. I have so many stamps I haven't used yet mainly because I don't remember what I have. I am so bad!LOL Thanks for hosting a fun blog candy contest.
