TFL and Blog Candy

Do you know what that means? That's short for Thanks For Looking. We see it all over the place on blogs & forums. So why am I bringing this up? Well, I noticed my hit counter is now over... 20,000! That means someone is LOOKING! Sooooooo TFL!

Blog Candy
Another fun thing I see on blogs is something called Blog Candy. I don't know who thought this up or when it started, but I know everyone likes it! :) When someone has Blog Candy, they are usually celebrating something. I'm thinkin I need to celebrate that you all have come to my blog.

I started my blog a little less than a year ago. Some of you might not realize that not only am I a demonstrator with StampinUP, but I'm also a demonstrator for Gold Canyon. Gold Canyon candles started here in Arizona a little over 10 years ago. Their candles and other products are awesome! If you want to read more about this company and their products click here. You can also check out my Gold Canyon Home Page for info as well here.

I've decided to share Gold Canyon products for my 1st Blog Candy!
Here's what is up for grabs:
1 Fresh Orange Auto Freshener
1 Macintosh Apple Book Mark
I will also be sending a little stamping related surprise as well :)

Here's how to enter:
To be entered into the drawing for this Blog Candy please submit a comment to this post and tell me how you found my blog and if you have visited more than once before. I will accept comments until 10pm GMT (Arizona time) Friday April 18th. There will be 3 winners for my drawing!! The items come in packs of 3 so I'm dividing them out to have more winners! Winners will be posted Saturday morning April 19th. U.S. Shipping Addresses only please.

Thanks to ALL of you who read my blog, subscribe, and leave me nice comments. It really does make my day :) Not to mention Michaela too! She LOVES to read the blog as well. This has been, and continues to be, a fun and inspiring adventure for me!

I'm not sure how I found your blog. I have you on my google reader so I see when you post something, but how it came to be there? I don't know. I love Gold Canyon scents! What a fun give away!

Hi Lori! My name is Emily and I came across your blog through splitcoast stampers. I don't know if I would qualify for your drawing because I am also a Stampin' Up! demonstrater. I have found a lot of good ideas on SCS. I think I came across your blog through your baby shower stuff you were working on at one time. I was amazed at how awesome it all looked, and all the work that it must have taken.

Nancy Riley said...

Great blog candy, Lori! I think YOU found ME late last summer. Your cyberspace friendship has been a blessing! We'll have to hook up for lunch someday since we're both in the valley!

Thanks for visiting my blog. First let me say you don't look old enough to have a granddaughter, but she is just too, too cute. Love those pics. Priceless. I found your blog because you found mine I guess and this is my first visit, but it won't be my last. You have made my day.

Kirsten said...
