Love is something if you give it away...
you end up having more!


And I LOVE this Winter Woodland Cricut Cartridge & it is just one of the great prizes we are giving away at our Weekend To Unwind. I love giving stuff away, makes me feel like Oprah or Ellen (she gives away sooo much cool stuff.). The perfect job for me would just be giving away stuff all day. But here's the catch: I like getting an appreciative reaction.
Quick Story: I was at Scrapfest a couple years ago & Ranger had just come out with their new paint daubers. They weren't available in stores yet, but the Ranger instructor had a full set she was giving away in the class. So cool. I was so envious of the woman who's name was called (I was thinking I might beat her up & steal her goodies in the parking lot.....okay, not really.) Jealously isn't a good thing. But I wasn't just jealous, I was raging. Because when her name was called, she looked annoyed that she had to get up to claim her prize. She didn't smile. She didn't say Thank You. I was furious. I know I don't need those daubers. I am lucky. I have a store, and I get all sorts of goodies. I didn't deserve to win. But someone who at least looked appreciative should have. That's my story.
I think most people feel the same. It's fun to see someone excited. And that's the best part of giving stuff away. That's why Oprah is so lucky. That's why I am so lucky (for this weekend anyway). You can purchase tickets to our party for $15! It's from 7-10pm tomorrow and it features a mini class with My Minds Eye instructor Trisha Ladouceur.

I wouldn't be excited if I won anything. You know how laid back, subtle, and quiet I am. I have a hard time expressing myself and talking in front of others...
I am just kidding of course. BECAUSE I WANT TO WIN STUFF.
