550K Blog Candy

I had the awesome privilege of meeting a blog fan over the weekend! Kathryn from Bourbonnais was in town visiting her family and emailed me about the 2011 Desk Calendars I created with My Digital Studio. She stopped by to say hello and pick one up. Thanks for coming by, Kathryn! I hope next time we'll have more time for stamping!

As I was getting the calendars out for Kathryn, I realized how many I still had left and thought it would be the perfect thing to give away for blog candy! And since the hit counter passed the 550,000 mark over the weekend, it's time for some blog candy RIGHT NOW!!

Thank you Kathryn, and everyone else, for "following" me and allowing me to share my stamping journey with you!

I'll be giving away TWO of these 2011 Desk Calendars. (Want your own? Click here for all the details to purchase your own calendar.) To be eligible for the blog candy, please leave on a comment on THIS post with your name tell me where you're from! City & State or Country. Anyone else from Illinois? (And by the way, I'm willing to travel for workshops!) I'll use random.org to pick two winners on Friday, February 4th at Noon.

For my record more than anything else, here are the latest blog stats, as of today, 1-31-11:

# of Posts: 885
# of Hits: 551,135

I'm games for candy. I hate being first. The first one never gets chosen. I am from Murray, UT but I live in Hewitt, TX. I have only been to Illinois. I like this calendar because of it's size. It is perfect for a guest room. I would need one for my scrapbook area to remember what day today is.

Hi Julie. Note for everyone else: I own one of these calendars -- it's on my desk at work -- but I'd certainly welcome another one to give as a gift. I faithfully follow Julie's blog and I'm really happy she keeps it short, sweet, clever, and up-beat. I live in Champaign, Illinois.

I love this desk calendar. Such a great size for a desktop. Very creative design and use of the acrylic picture frames. I live in Jenison, MI but I was born in Jackson, MI on the other side of the state. I have been to Illinois a few times in my life. It is a great place to visit. Love the blog candy ideas you have. Thanks for sharing!
