A Happy Day!

Hi Everyone--

Today is the Launch Party for Whimsical Musings Magazine,

an online magazine created to inspire you!

I hope you’ll click the button on my right side bar and join the fun!

I am having a Valentine’s Day blog candy giveaway! To enter, just make

sure you’re a follower and leave a message on here. If you would like 2

chances to win, just post the button on your sidebar and let me know that

you have put it on with a link back to here. The winner will be announced

on Valentine’s Day.

While I have just purchased brand-new items for the giveaway, I have

also created handmade flowers and tags of various shapes and sizes this

weekend. There are items from different companies, including Martha Stewart

and Fiskars. There are flocked stickers, alphabet letters, metallic butterflies--

and more! There’s plenty of fun things to make all kinds of crafty goodness

in no time at all!

If you are an artist, you will have lots of fun with these products. If you are new

to all this, it would be a great way to get started making cards and tags.

One more thing--I will be leaving this post up for a few days and

will check back often for messages--I just want to make sure that

everyone has a chance to see it and enter!

I am linking this to Rednesday so that all my friends from there will also have a chance to win!

Also, my friend Linda is having a giveaway--Her link is on my right side bar--don't miss it!!!

This giveaway is now closed--Feb. 13, 2011.)

Sally Annie Magundy said...

Hi Cindy!
Wishing you much success and lots of creative fun with your new online zine! I know it will be wonderful.
whisper whisper ... I'm a weirdo, I don't technically "follow" anyone's blogs - I'm not a joiner kind of person. So very silly of me, I know. Please know I adore you and always look forward to Rednesday to catch up with you.
(All of that is a long way of saying that I read your criteria for your giveaway and sniffle sniffle, I understand.)
Someone is going to be one very lucky crafter to win all that loot!

Happy Zine Launch and Happy Rednesday!
