Blog candy is coming......

So, as some of you know, Feb 2014 will be the 4th anniversary of my Brain Surgery. Back in 2010 I had 2 brain surgeries which saved my life and took away the seizures I was having.  It was a tremendous change that took away pain that was everyday in my life. It brought about many huge changes including my weight loss of 70 pounds, my activity from being almost bed ridden and stuck in my home to going out and walking everyday, my enrichment in my relationship with my spouse who no longer has to worry about taking care of me, but can now just be my partner and now a reduction in the amount of day to day medications I have to take.  I look forward to further reducing these medications as the years come.  Everyday that I get further from surgery, the better the chance is that I won't have seizures again.  So every year means a whole lot more as I get further away....

Here's just SOME of the blog candy I have coming, it will be given out during ALL of Feb.  As before, candy will be going on all day during every day of Feb and many people will be winning more than once.  For that reason, I will be waiting to mail the goodies until the end of the month, to ensure I can mail out all the items you win in the same package.  Everyone is welcome to join in, regardless of the country of origin.  I can mail packages anywhere, but postal costs are getting so high that foreign packages are typically stamps or digital stamps as prizes. 

Here's the first sneak peak of photos....Lots more pics to come as this hardly taps the box that's filled with stamps!! (and I am not even counting the goodies that are coming from the vendors yet!!!)


Basic Grey:
 7 Gypsies, Maya Road, Saturated Canary
 Prima, Fiskars, TLC

 Bo Bunny Stamps
 My Mind's Eye, Stamping Bella
 Hero Arts, Fancy Pants, Elisabeth Bell, Mo Manning, Stampavie
 Kraftin Kimmie, CC Designs
More photos to come soon!!  please share the blog candy info....goodies will start going out on Feb 1 and you can play every day with a chance to win!!
