When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

National Craft Month Blog Candies

Hello everyone, today is the start of the National Craft Month celebration and hope you can celebrate it with me and my friend Joan, Tinker Planet.   The two of us joined crafty forces to celebrate the month by creating all kinds of crafty projects.  Our goal is to encourage fellow crafters like us to make at least one crafty project every day for the whole month of March.  Yeah, it is a dare, that requires your precious time and hardwork but in the end it will be all worth it.  You will be surprised how productive you were during the whole month of March.  

Of course hard work always gets rewarded right, so my friend, Joan and I will be giving away a total of 4 blog candies that will be drawn in April.

Below are some basic rules that you must follow:

1.) Leave a  comment on my blog and Joan's blog then you can post your project for the day.  2 comments (mine and Joan) + 1 project = 1 official entry.
2.) Your entry projects can be anything from cardmaking, scrapbooking, any kind of papercrafting, crocheting, beading, jewelry-making, knitting, cross-stitching, sewing and anything crafty that you can think of.  Joan and I will be collecting submitted project using the inlinkz tool below.
3.) Collection will end on March 31 so post projects as much as you can, as much as you want PROVIDED that it is a new project made between the dates of March 1 - 31, 2011.  Winners will be given 24hours to get in touch and if not then a new winner will be drawn again.
4.) Reposting the blog candy in your blog is acceptable but not a requirement although we would appreciate it if you will spread the word.  The more, the merrier, right!?
5.) Having a blog is not a requirement to join in the fun.  For those who doesn't have a blog, you can upload your entry projects to galleries like SCS and Photobucket and then link it to Inlinkz tool below.
6.) Please make sure that your site is not set to private so we can view it as well as the other participants.  Anyways, we are here to inspire each other with our own masterpieces, right!?

1st Winner: Cricut Cartridge Paisley, Copic markers, stamps, inkpads, chipboard albums and all sorts of embellishment

 Also included in the goodies is a pack of  Action Wobble (10pieces)
 2nd Winner: Cricut Cartridge Simply Charmed,  Copic markers, stamps, inkpads, chipboard albums and all sorts of embellishments:
Like the first goodies, this second giveaway will include a pack of Action Wobble (10pieces)

Remember, the goal is to CREATE, CREATE and CREATE.  Start out by taking out your supplies especially those that's been collecting dust in your craftroon and put them in good use. 

Looking forward to see your projects.  Happy Crafting everyone!  Don't forget to visit my friend, Joan at Tinker Planet and here's her Blog Candies!


UPDATE: CLARIFICATION ABOUT NCM RULE (written and posted March 25, 2011)
Hello Ladies,

This is just a clarification about a certain rule in our NCM Challenge.  I am posting this so it will be clear to everybody.  My friend Joan and I agreed that we should go easy on RULE No. 1: 1 comment for Joan and 1 comment for myself + 1 project = 1 official entry.  Since NCM had become really successful we agreed to go easy on that particular rule and to be perfectly honest, it was confusing.  So there you go ladies, disregard rule number 1 but of course we would both appreciate it if you can stop by once in awhile and leave us some lovely comments but no pressure okay.

Still have couple days to go.  Please keep on posting your projects.  Remember, the more projects you post, the bigger your chance to  win the  goodies.

Thanks for making our NCM challenge a big success.  Now I am starting to think what challenge I might do for next month... or should I just wait for May for National Scrapbooking Day?  Hmmm, what do think?  Let me know your thoughts please...

Goodluck ladies and hope everyone is having a nice weekend!  Hugs!
