The Valentine Lettering Winners are...


You are the first 6 people who responded to my contest blog, so you will receive the same lettering that appears on the candy jar shown (5 commented first on the blog and one sent an email at the same time, so there are 6 winners instead of 5). Please email me your addresses (email address is in my profile) unless it would be ridiculous to give me your address when I will be seeing you today when we go Visiting Teaching, plus I know where you live anyway. :)

I will be awarding the candy jar next week. There's still a few days to submit your ideas for a cute Valentine door hanger. (See January 21 post).

Me, again

I discovered one thing about the slide shows while I was playing around with them...if you click on the little sidebar on the right side of the slide show, it will take you to a larger and much easier to view image. Problem solved.

(Sometimes I amaze even myself)

While I've got your attention...

If you're looking for the contest, it's in the previous entry (the one titled Contest! Contest! Contest!--yeah, that one), but while you're here, I have a question...does anyone know how to make slide shows bigger? I'm trying to showcase lettering ideas, but some are just too small to be readable.

Contest! Contest! Contest!

Yes, it's contest time again..this time a Valentine's Day Writing Contest. I need a catchy Valentine greeting or phrase that I can put on a board to hang on my front door. One I did last year says: HUGS KISSES Valentine Wishes. My idea, so far, for this year is SWEETS for the SWEET, and under that it says: -inquire within-. Can you come up with something better?

Here's how it will work...leave your Valentiney idea as a comment to this blog. (If for some reason you are not able to comment, email your idea to my address found in my profile). Remember it can't be too wordy, it needs to fit on a board, sized to look good hanging on the front door.

ATTENTION: This is where I reveal the fabulous prizes!!! The winning entry will receive the cute Valentine's Candy Jar* pictured above. The first 5 comments (all entries or random comments included) will receive the same lettering shown on the jar for you to apply to your own candy jar. I will accept submissions through January 31st. If there's a bunch, I may open it up for voting--we'll see how it goes. Winners will be announced the first week of February.
*If the jar need to be mailed to the winner and would cost more to do so than the jar itself, I reserve the right to mail the lettering and a $4 check for the recipient to purchase their own jar. (I bought mine at IKEA for $3.99 last year, but no, I'm not accounting for inflation...or the recession either).

Welcome to 2009! New year--new fun blog stuff--

Take time to check out my new slide shows--I will be changing them from time to time. Right now the theme is Love, Family, Valentine's Day...if you need vinyl lettering ideas on other topics or for specific rooms, just let me know.

It was so fun having a Christmas contest to give away free stuff that I will have something similar in the works before Valentine's Day, so stay tuned. It's amazing how happy winning free stuff makes people and Valentine's Day is all about making people happy, right?
