Some Housekeeping items {RAKs & Blog Candy}

First, I have a long & overdue THANK YOU to Tracy over at Enchantasy. She was the winner of my first (ever) blog candy and sent me this adorable card and bookmark. How cute is she?

Today, my mailbox had some wonderful goodies from Elizebeth at eBethonline! My daughter, Isabella immediately grabbed the necklace and put it on- she is in love! This card is absolutely stunning and I am so glad that I ordered this SU set last week- I cannot wait to use it and Elizebeth has given me a wonderful inspiration piece to work from!

Finally, I owe my lovely & loyal readers my final installment of Blog Candy for my Seattle Shoppin' Extravaganza. I don't have another store to feature, so I came up with another idea. I will ask all of you to GUESS how many stamps I will come home with from Seattle-should be interesting. I will post the details {candy} when I return! Looking forward to all of your guesses!
ETA: The winner of the correct guess will be announced on Tuesday, September 11th. Please be sure to look at all of the comments & have an original guess. Good luck!

Oh, Im SO glad your daughter likes the necklace!She looks so adorable in the picture. =)

I had got all my soldering supplies and whipped it up and found the pearls and jewelry findings and just hoped it would be a 'twinkly treasure' for her.

How many stamps will you come home with? Im gonna guess that you bring home 33!
Happy shopping, it's gonna be so much fun!

Reality Show Reject said...

My guess is 21. Have fun shopping and thanks for the chance to win!

Elaine said...

I'm guessing an average of 8-10 stamps per store...Monkey Love, Impress, Paper Zone, Rubber Soul, A-muse, gosh - that's only some of the great shopping...I'll guess 50 stamps!

Elaine said...

You should have people guess HOW MUCH you'll spend at stamp stores!! Don't forget Michael's, Joann Superstores, Ben Franklin, etc!! There is also a store in Kirkland - I think it is called Standing room only?? And Friends in West Seattle...dang! I wish I could go with you!! I'll be here but working!! :(

Ijsbeer said...

My guess is 22:) Have fun shopping!

canben said...

I'm going to guess 38! I was going to say TOO MANY, but noticed that everyone else put a number ;)

Pattyjo said...

I am going to guess 30. Thank you for the chance!

Linda SS said...

27 stamps??? I'm sure you are having a ball - wish I was there too:)

janet allen said...

I'm going to go for an even 25. After all there has to be some damage control. If it were me I'd go to Seattle with the intention of buying 15 and then stretching it that extra 10 because they are too hard to resist. HAVE FUN!

Helen & Co. said...

Really love this so much!!
P.S. 33?

Kristine said...

How about 20 new stamps?

Kirstin said...

I am gonna say 33...has that been taken already???

jodene said...

My guess will be 26. Hope you had a great trip.

Betty said...

I live in Seattle!!! My guess is 29!

Kim (bscrapper04@yahoo.com) said...

Let's see..16.

Ghazal(ghazal_31005@yahoo.com) said...

Hmmmm ... I guess 23.

Selena said...

So cute! So nice that DD got an RAK too!

koz said...

11

Kris said...

Have lots of fun! I will miss you! I guess 19.

michaela said...

Looks like all the 20's have already been taken, so I'll go a bit on the low end with 18.

melissa r. said...

I will say 40 although that does sound like a lot. But you've been planning this trip for awhile so I am assuming you have been saving up for quite a spending spree. I'd have to take out a 2nd mortgage on our house if I bought that many:)

Tanis said...

Does this include my stamps, because that is 6 right there!
But, just for you, I am going to guess that you bring home at least 14 sentiment ones, as I know you can really never have enough of those!

Julieg said...

I'm going to guess 29! Thanks for sharing!

Latisha said...

Well it depends if you buy any sets, and if you do there could be 12-20 in just one set. I'm going to say 31. I really want to go higher but I will stick with that number.

~* Tracy *~ said...

I'm so glad Mr. Elephant showed up in your mail box! I was just wondering about that today!
I am going to guess 37... it is soooooooooo hard to guess!
hugs, Tracy
