October Blog Waltz Review and Winners Announced


The Waltzingmouse Stamps team was so impressed and amazed with the creative projects of those who participated in the Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz this past Monday.  We are please to share some of those great projects with you, just in case you happened to miss then..


Cathy Weber showed us how beautiful a home-decorated candle bring the season into our homes.  She used  Bountiful Basket Additions and Flourishes-Scallops and Dots to make this candle.


Laurie Jones used Spring Baskets and Bountiful Baskets Additions to create this lovely iconic image of Fall.  The great texture of the burlap die cut adds to the earthy feel of this great card. Notice how she stamped the circle rope image from the Very Vintage Labels 3 set.  It's the small touches that add so much detail to a project, and these circle rope images make these button embellishments stand out.

Pat used Blessed by You and Teeny Trees to create this autumnal creation filled with lovely leaves layered on this plaid background.  Great dimension adds to the design to give it a real 3D look and feel. 

All the projects were awesome, and as promised, we selected one random winner from all those who participated in the Waltz.  That lucky winner is: Karen Haman .  Congratulations Karen!  Please e-mail Claire at with your mailing address and you set of choice and she will make sure that it gets to you.

Last, but not lease, we also selected one commenter who posted their answer to the following question:  What are are MOST grateful for?

The winning comment came from craftymom205 who said:

"I am thankful for a husband that loves me and allows me to craft. I am also thankful for may family and that I have a job right now."

Please follow the same directions above to acquire your free stamp set.

There are so many things that we can find to be thankful for if we only take a moment to think about it.  Being thankful for what we already have is probably the most powerful tool of positive thinking. The ability to notice what we already have, and to consider ourselves blessed with it, truly unlocks the door to abundance and to feeling good.

And a BIG thank you to everyone who participated and commented.  YOU are what makes these Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz events so much fun and so inspiring.

Have a great day!
