a scrappy giveaway

I have to admit, I never thought I'd start scrapbooking. But about 8 years ago (while pregnant with Hadleigh) I did. My first project was quite an undertaking...I surprised Brent with an Air Force career album, beginning with his AF Academy days up until the present. (I must admit, that album needs updating now!)

It's been downhill since then. I've found a hobby that I love. One that allows me to be a storyteller with words and pictures for our family. One that also gives me a creative outlet.

And believe it or not, scrapbooking was how I found out about blogging. Ali Edwards mentioned her blog once in an article in Creating Keepsakes Magazine. I looked it up...found links to Jenni Bowlin and Kelli Crowe.

Then I found Rhonna Farrer's blog and The {21} challenge. I wanted to join...but needed a place to share pages I created. And so, I began New Every Morning.

Lately, my crafty posts have been few and far between...but I'm hoping to share more...scrapbooking as well as some other creative endeavors we do here at home.

So...for our last giveaway, I thought it was only appropriate to give away some of my favorite scrapbooking goodies!

Included in this giveaway:
  • My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose Mabel "Play" Layered Chipboard
  • My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose Mabel "So Sweet" Buttons
  • Jenni Bowlin Vintage Navy Alpha Stickers
  • Studio Calico polka dot background stamp (roughly 4 x 6 inches)
  • Studio Calico $5 gift card
  • 2 yards each of Divine Twine bakers twine in Oyster Grey, Blueberry, Airmail
  • 2 yards each of The Twinery bakers twine in Peapod, Pink Sorbet, Charcoal, Caribbean, and Lemondrop
Can I tell you how excited I am about that airmail twine?!?!?

If you'd like to be entered in this giveaway, please leave a comment with your name and share one of your favorite hobbies. Comments will be accepted through Monday, March 28 at midnight EST.

Thanks for sharing this "blog anniversary" week with me! Make sure you've entered the other two giveaways below...I'll make an announcement of winners on Tuesday afternoon!

Shawna said...

I am HUGE fan of that twine. Might just have to get some of that myself. I have several hobbies, but the problem is sticking with them. Hmmm....knitting: mid-way through a scarf, sewing: finished one project and excited about the next one, scrapbooking - think it's turned to digital photo books at this point, eating - still a winner. :)

notetoself said...

Oh for the love of twine! ;) I love your blog! So inspiring. Besides scrapbooking I also enjoy embroidery. It's a great "grab & go" hobby for when I know I'll be waiting in a Dr's office or when I'm going to be in the car for any length of time. :)
