Grounded from CHA Giveaway

Were you ever grounded as a teenager? I was. Countless times. For a whole day. This is how I feel staying at home to work and take care of my other adult duties while what seems like ALLLLLLL the other crafty people are up in the Windy City shopping until their little hearts are content, surrounded by brilliant new products, creativity and crafty friends. SIGH.

So, in honor of those "grounded" at home, I am doing a daily stamp giveaway right here on my blog-o! Yep, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday (and maybe even Sunday) I'm giving away a stamp set. All you have to do is leave a comment on each day's stamp giveaway post with your email! I will pick the winners from each post on Sunday. If you are going to CHA, you can still win, I won't hold it against you (I'll just be jealous) :)

Good luck, and have a great week of crafting! (And don't worry, most of those awesome new toys that come out at CHA will be available for our eager little hands soon.)

Tuesday's Treat.....just leave a comment telling me what you are looking forward to seeing from CHA this year. Don't forget a way for me to get a hold of you.

I'm "grounded" too. I'm hoping to attend next year's winter show in Los Angeles. I'm in CA and it's a short train ride for me. Yay! I'm looking forward to all of the paper. Especially getting my hands on the new Basic Grey. Yum!

Thanks,

I know what you mean, Erin! We'll have to go next time for sure!
There are SO many awesome products coming out, I see lots of shopping in my future! But, I've seen some great new storage & organization products from Cropper Hopper that are exciting!
Thanks for a chance at these fab stamps, and for giving us something to look forward to while we're grounded! :)

DG said...

Not at CHA either. Maybe one of these years. Thanks for a give away. Please leave a comment on my craft blog if I when or my email link.

Helen said...

Erin, I wish I was going too :-( But, we can live through others, I guess--LOL!

JennyKozar said...

What I am looking forward to is meeting so many crafting friends at CHA. All the products and such will be out soon enough but to meet so many creative people at once will be amazing in my opinion!

I HATE Chicago so I opted to stay home even tho I'm only a 5 hour drive away. I am a paper lover so all things paper puts me in my happy place. Thanks for a great give away. papermemories4u(at)yahoo(dot)com

coachfans said...

I can't go either. I live in Florida and I am in trainings for the month of July which is supposed to be summer vacation (I teach). I sure do love having time making projects when I get home.

I am very new to the stamping community, so have to confess that I only heard of CHA within the last couple of months (had to Google what that "cha" thing was), so am at home as well. What I am looking forward to, though, are some great product releases -- especially some new rubber from Unity!
