I have had my eye on this baby for some time...
a real necessity in my little crafty world

I ve posted a link on my blog :-)

Lorraine A said...

Oh I forgot to tell you what I got, well, my kids bought me wine and my husband gave me chocs and money for me to buy my own crafty bits, Living in Gozo I have to order most of my things online ,,,.They know me well ha ha

Valems said...

Hello! Gorgeous candy. I agree with Lorraine, I think it's cuttlebug. As for me, I got two Sarah Kay stamps. I will post the link in my blog candy alerts.

Dawn said...

Hiya!!!
My eyes are on stalks at all that fabby stickers - siiiigh!!!
Well now Mrs Kath - myself and the two furries think it's a MM Slice!!!
My Santa (otherwise known as ME!!!LOL) what is it with North East Santas - they have no interest in the crafty world - Grrrr!!)bought Circle Nesties, Inkadinkadoo Stamps, Tim Holtz distresser and Prima flowers and Crystals! pity I had to pay for it myself though!!! Rofl

Hugs
Dawn

Bibi said...

I was going to guess Cuttlebug too, but to be different, I'll guess...Cricut machine? Santa brought me all sorts of goodies, but my favourite is probably a Spencer and Rutherford travel bag. I had to buy my own craft supplies though, as my friends/family don't share this love of scrapping! And here's the link to my blog, linking to this:

Hi Kath, I think your pressy was a laptop/notebook thingy. If so, you'll have great fun using photoshop type software, your stash looks FAN - TAS - TIC. Santa didnt bring me anything crafty, he either thought i had it all! or thought i would prefer to pick it myself (right on both counts). speak soon. jen x

Lorraine said...

Oh now I would wonder if it's a threading water punch, but then again would you have been able to conceal the evidence until now.

Big hugs & fab candy...

Lorraine xxx

metalicbutterfly said...

Hmmmm!
well I am probably going totally down the wrong track with this one but maybe it wasnt anything crafty!.........mmmm! you should see the smoke coming out of my ears..........
well here goes I wonder if its a small magnifying glass (you know ..had my 'eye' on this 'Baby') well i already think I am way off the mark but hey in for a penny!....
whoever wins will be an incredibly lucky person so good luck!!!!

(i'll pop the link in the usual place kathx)

Sondra said...

I think you got a laptop. I got a camera! I'm sorry but I don't have a blog to post your link too. I would if I could cause your stuff's fab. :)

Tracey said...

Fantastic giveaway Kath!! Thanks for the chance!

I am going to guess that Santa brought you a Slice! As for me I got a QK Revolution for Christmas - it's fantastic!!

Cheryl Koskakura said...

Hi Kath,
I'm thinking a Cuttlebug with some embossing folders. Santa Baby gave me some new Stampin' Up! stamp sets!
Thanks for hosting such a fun giveway!

Cassie said...

Oh no! I'm not very knowledgeable on all of the wonders of the craft accessory world!! I would have to say a Cuttlebug also. It's one of the few things that I know of, and think it would just be wonderful!

My family wasn't too big on the gift thing this year. I did get a variety of wonderful smelling lotions and bath stuff. I love smelly lotions and bath stuff!

Nettie said...

Kath, my guess would have to be a Cricut machine why else would you give a way such an awesome assortment of Alphabet candy.

What ever it was I hope your enjoying your long awaited for new toy.

mudmaven said...

I've never been one to go out on a limb (at least not too far out anyway) so I'm going to go along with the consensus here and say it was either a Cuttlebug or a Cricut! I've linked you up on my blog: http://mudmaven.blogspot.com/2009/01/blog-candy-alert.html and I can't wait to find out what you got! ~chris

Anonymous said...

Hi Kath, Happy New Year! I am guessing you received either an iPod or an iPhone. But I am betting more money on the iPod -- a really cuddle bunny piece of technology.Such fun, whatever your Christmas Gifts. Take care. Carol

NGCARDS said...

ooo yummy candy!! hmmm let me guess could it be a machine of some sort?? a cuttlebug / cricut / bind it all! any of them? lol xxx

aardvarkpest said...

Well I think you already have a cuttlebug so to be different I am guessing that maybe nice new laptop or a nice new printer to go in your new revamped craft room. I brought myself some stampin-up and forever friends stamps on behalf of hubby who doesn't do shopping.

juliejules said...

Hmmmm Kath, my first thoughts were, was it Tim Holtz wrapped up in a big bow??????? No????? Hmmmm well then my next thought was maybe it was a Cuttlebug???? Love ya blog!!! Jules

scotspanda said...

Ok I am going to say a cuttlebug because I don't remember seeing any cards made by you with cuttlebug embossing on until after Xmas :o)

My crafty santa brought me a cuttlebug and my hub is the same as yours so I told him what I wanted, saved it on ebay so he could look at it and then eventually just ordered it myself........aftr years of receiving really awful presents I have learned lol

I have linked you here

cdziuba said...

I bet it's a cuttlebug. I actually didn't give or get much this year, we cut way back. Thanks for the contest.

Annelies said...

I think you got a Cuttlebug from Santa. I received money, which I'm going to spend in a stamping shop next weekend. Here's my link . Thanks for a chance to win! Greetings from Belgium, Annelies

Liza said...

Fab candy Kath. My guess would be a cuttlebug or a cricut. Santa was very good to me this year, I received a cuttlebug, dies and embossing folders, stamps, inks, and loads of other crafty goodies. Thanks for the chance to win, off to link now.

Liza x

KarimGomez said...

hi kath, i was looking at your scraproom photos trying to find something "brand new" and i think there's two posibilities:
1. the Sizzix SideKick Machine, i think it cuz it is still in its box hihihi or
2. the cutteblug cuz you used a cutteblug to emboss after xmas...

well Santa didn't come to my house this year :(, so it would be awesome to get the giveaway, you would become my santa!! hihihihi, thak you for being so generous!!!!

Sunday Girl said...

Hi Kath, I was going to go with the general consensus and say a cuttlebug but as you are now the proud owner of a craft robo im going to say a bind it all. I would love one of these. Santa didn't bring anything crafty this year but hopefully I will be able to buy some new stamps in the sales. Thanks for the chance to win some beautiful candy and I have linked.
Lisa x

Moni said...

It is something that i want for a long time-the cuttlebug! I have my new digit camera! I lined you on my blog! hugs, Moni

Anne said...

Well Kath, I wanted to say something different too but I've been doing a bit of investigating around your blog and I noticed too that you've only just started using embossing folders, PLUS you said you always wanted to join in the Cuttlebug challenges.....Hmmmm..... have to go with the majority 'fraid and say Cuttlebug!

That's a very generous giveaway you have there - I'm sure someone will appreciate it greatly! xx

weewiccababe said...

well I reckon it was the cuttlebug - I saw you'd entered the cuttlebug challenge.

Santa brought no crafty things to my hoose at all - bad santa!! but he did bring me loads of books. And I'm saving my pennies for a trip to Letham Crafts soon.

have linked you already, and may i just say this is another fantabulous candy missus.

Alison said...

Another fab candy Kath. Well I thinks Santa got you a new camera for your Christmas this year. Thanks for cahnce to win, popping a link on me blog.

Cheri Howard said...

Hmmmmm....could be a set of nesties that you've been wanting? Santa brought me some Cuttlebug embossing folders, a couple of nesties sets, two Whimsy stamps and some vellum paper!

I've already linked you up in the CandyBar at my blog, The Paper Freak.

Jingle said...

Oh, what fun! I'm guessing that Santa brought you....a Bind It All! I see from your room pics that you have a CB, a CAD, and some of the other essentials, so I'm going with the BIA! I got some scrappy cash to order photos and pic up a couple of fun things!

Sara said...

Hi Kath,

I am hoping that your Santa brought you a Cricut just like ME!

:)

Thanks for the generous giveaway, Sara.

PS- HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Joy said...

Hi Kath, my first thought was also a cuttlebug. I have not made cards for ages and am going to start again this year and think you have given me lots of food for thought. I did not recieve any crafty items for Christmas but some lovely jeweler and a voucher for another tattoo, but hubby is not happy about that so we will have to see.
Thanks for another generous prize. Joy x

debby4000 said...

Well I think the clue is in the word necessity, sounds like nestabilities and you need a cuttlebug especially if you like the embossing.

-Agnes- said...

Hi Kath, I think it might have been a cricut, is that right? Santa brought me a drum kit! I'm not sure excatly why - think it was some kind of impulse buy - but it's (literally) the biggest surprise ever... Here is the link to my blog post where I spread the words about your candy.

Judy's Crafty Moments said...

well, my guess is not too different from the others. I was going to guess a cricut. As for me I got a mini sewing machine from Santa...so much fun. Now all my cards are going to have stitching on them! Thanks for the fab blog candy...I love all those letter and alphabets! Yum Yum!
Judy x

Jen said...

Morning Kath, can i cheat and have another go?????? My second guess is a camera to take even better piccies of your lovely cards, but if i can only have one guess, I'll have to stick with the laptop :-)

rumpelwibschstilzchen said...

I think, Santa brought you this cute little green handbag, everybody is talking about. I have had one for over a year and I can't lie without it!
What is a green handbag? Well yes, cuttlebug some call it *lol*
I got some lovely spellbinders and I can't live without them neither!
Thanks for this great chance!

Life At Camellia Cottage said...

Well, Kath, I'm thinking it was either a Cricut or a Cuttlebug as well. Sounds like those are the big ones on everyone's list! I got lots of neat stuff, but the only crafty one was a gift card from my LSS - I'm using it to get 4 sets of nestabilities - all scallopped, the circles, ovals, squares and rectangles. They've been ordered - can't wait to get them! I have your blog candy on my sidebar also. Blessings, Becky G.

vittory said...

I would say that you've got on New Year Crop-it-Die. Am I right??? This year Santa gave me some extra money so it's shopping time =))

Jilli said...

I think Santa bought you a Slice!!! I wish he'd got me one they look amazing! Santa got me some Nesties, new scissors and cottons. You're all linked up on my blog. Jillix

Sam said...

Hmmm, after much blog searching I gave up and decided to read some other comments first before thinking again. And when I saw a few comments saying that you'd only just begun to do cuttlebug embossing, I went back and had another look - they were right!!! (as far I can tell anyway) so my guess, along with a million others is a Cuttlebug!! ;-)

Mar G said...

Wow fab give-away (yet again) Kath!
I'm following the majority & guessing that Santa brought you a Cuttlebug?
Santa didn't leave crafty goodies at my house but.....I treated myself when we were away in Inverness!
I'll link you on my blog - Tc Mar G x

TheLittleFrog said...

I believe it is either Cricut machine or a Cuttlebug:))) I think both those machines are great! I am hopping and wishing to get a Cricut machine for my Birthday, we'll see:)))
My Santa(my fiance) was pretty generous - I got a trip to London. It was awesome!!! Greetings from Lucia:)

SHartl said...

Hmm, from what you say about Santa, I'm thinking it isn't something totally crafty..so how about a new printer?
This year was as dry as a desert, craft-wise but that doesn't mean I won't go treat myself to some new papers and ribbon!

Tip Top said...

I know!! It IS a Tim Holtz life size cardboard cut out isn't it??!! I knew you'd get one someday!! Link will be on my sidebar!

Paula said...

Hiya Kath well i think your santa brought you a camera? To take photo's of your lovely card's? My santa brought me a Crop A Dile which i was very surprised with now i just have to work out how to use the blooming thing lol. Im just going to link you on my blog now and thankyou for the chance to win this Fantastic Candy.
Paula xxxx

Carol said...

Good Evening Kath!

After examination of your blog I too think that it was a cuttlebug that you got! and you'll have great fun with it too....those embossing folders are just divine!
I got a jukebox and design studio for my cricut, and some other bits and bobs!

Take care, Carolxx

Kathryn said...

So I'm gonna go WAY out on a limb from everybody else and say that MAYBE it was a SEWING MACHINE! :)

Mainly because you seem to use a lot of stitched patterns in your cards; but they're mostly stamped or drawn-in as far as I can tell...
I use my Brother CE-4000 machine all the time.

For Christmas I got a set of blue-and-white Oriental sushi dishes that my husband noticed I had been eyeing. Hooray!

Still, watch everybody else be right about the Cuttlebug! ;)... Honestly, I also avoided that guess though because it's a touchy subject...a Cuttlebug or Cricut machine will probably be on my wishlist forever!

Thanks for the chance at these awesome alphabets, though! Best of luck to everyone! :)

KV Creative Designs said...

Hi Kath,
I am going to guess that Santa brought you the Cricut Expressions machine! Santa in this area doesn't bring Art supplies either, I got clothes, jewelry and perfume.

Happy New Year and Artful Blessings,
Kathryn
P.S. Stop by my blog and come celebrate my Blogiversary giveaway!!

fancyscrap said...

I have searched your blog up and down for two days and think your gift from Santa is a cuttlebug.
Santa didn't leave for me crafty supplies this year...

Andrea said...

Congratulations for your cany blog!!!! Is great!! Happy New Year!!! Andrea

Artyjen said...

Well - I think old Santa probably kept to tradition & your pressie was not craft related! How about a super-duper coffee maker that you can keep alongside your craft space and have on tap 24/7?
Thanks for the chance to win some candy.

Hi Kath

Well the only thing I can imagine that you could possibly need is a Tardis which will enable you to store all of the lovely craft goodies you won recently - and I am sure that Santa would be the only person that could satisfy this need because he is magic.

My craft present from Santa was 2 sets of ProMarker pens from Letraset. I already bought myself one set to see how I got on with them. I fell in love with them and my youngest son asked Santa to bring me another two sets. Lucky me!!!

Sorry Kath - still no blog of my own to feature your blog candy on but I wanted to let you know my guess.

Take care

Lots of love
Jules xx

Betty Rollins said...

That dear old man brought you a cuttlebug, I'm hoping. Love your blog!

Sondra said...

Wowee! I think I posted before but I don't see it here.

Stamp Time said...

Hmmmmm....My guess is a cuttlebug. If that is what it is you are going to love it! I love mine and can't seem to use it enough!

Thanks for the chance to win.

Stamp Time said...

Hmmmm... My guess is a cuttlebug. If that is what it is, you are going to love it! I can't seem to use mine enough!

Thanks for the chance to win!

JDSHQ said...

I'm afraid I'll have to go with a Cuttlebug as well. Although the coffee pot is a good idea as well.....but I'm officially clueless as to what you received! I got the best present I could have gotten - a gift certificate to my fav hobby store, so I was very happy!

JDSHQ said...

I haven't a clue, so I'm going to have to go witht the majority and say a Cuttlebug. I was thinking a new camera, but I really don't know. What did I get? A gift card to my fav hobby store!

K said...

I agree with the most, it's a cuttlebug and texture plates for it, I'm a tad envious, but that goes away when I see your creations ;)
I got some pastel pencils from the crafty Santa's helper!
Bye, Kitty

Shirley said...

Well, I searched your blog, and I have to agree...probably a cuttlebug. My husband also doesn't get the "craft" thing...but the man went all out and got me a cricut expression. How he even knew what it was is beyond me! Anyhow, I've linked you up, and hope you enjoy your new toy. Thanks for the chance.

Tracy B. said...

Wow! I think Santa would bring you something small and compact since your so organized with shelving...my guess is a cricut. My 3 girls and I would just love all those fun stickers. I got a Scor-it from Santa:) I don't have MY blog up yet so I'll email my girlfriends about your great giveaway!! Thanks. jerryb17011@yahoo.com

Jerrold said...

Hey Kath. If I were your Santa I'd give you a Cuttlebug with folders. I gave my wife...I mean Santa got her;) some punches and new holiday stamps. I'll let all the women in my life know about your blog corner. jerroldbeck@yahoo.com

Anonymous said...

I'm sorry but I don't have a blog...I'm probably the only crafter in the world that doesn't have one. One of these days I will get into the blog world. I do love blogs and was just doing some playing and ended up here. I love to go from one blog to another to see all the great things that you people make. Well, everyone has guessed that you got either a Cuttlebug or a Cricut. I must say it has to be one of those two. I have them both and LOVE them. My family is clueless when it comes to gifts for me. They all say I am hard to buy for...all they have to do is buy me gift certificates to my favorite craft shopping places. I did get one Michael's gift certificate but that is ALL!! I just had to use my own money and go buy me a few Cuttlebug embossing folders and wrap them up from Santa and put them under the tree. I love all the terrific items in you blog candy give away. I'll tell my buddies all about your blog and send them your way.

Lainy's Little Blog said...

Umm.... I'm totally confused!!! I originally thought that you had a cuttlebug but after reading the responses I'm now thinking that perhaps I have been hallucinating??? Mind you, first week back at work and my brain is all over the place! I think you got some kind of machine but not quite sure what! I agree with the person who said that you perhaps got a sizzix sidekick as I do recall seeing one in the new pictures of your cubbyhole. Santa was very good to me crafting wise - martha stewarta punches, cuttlebug, Fiskars punches and scalloped nesties. But then again, I did have to request them!! Hugs, Lainy xxx

Kimberley said...

I think it is definitely a Slice but then again....... no I'll stick with my first hunch. Whatever it was I hope you get lots of enjoyment out of it and ultimately so will your blog followers.

The Crafty Den said...

Hi Kath, I think you were lucky enough to get some sets of nestabilities from Santa. Hope you have fun with them (if you did). Hugs, Denise x

Kimberley said...

Happy Crafter said...

I think its a cricut but could be nestabilities :)
Great candy you are offering i am off to link you on my blog now and whatever it is i hope you enjoy it thoroughly :)
Happy new Year Kath to you and all your family xx
Hugz Val xxx

Katarina said...

Hmm, I see most has guessed on cuttlebug, which I guess is the right answer? But how about a bind-it-all? And lots of glitter, lol.

I didn't get anything crafty for X-mas, but took care of that myself. All I needed was a sale and my creditcard ;) I got a lot of brads, a whole bunch of promarkers and everything in between.

I've written about your candy on my blog:

The Vannoy Family said...

Hello Kath - sounds like you have a very special Santa that has taken good care of you. I'm curious of what he has brought you - maybe a cuttlebug or a cricut - (Bugs & crickets for Christmas??) machine... Glad I found your blog - thank you for sharing! You've got a link with me in Texas on my sidebar!

Emma said...

Well after much searching and wondering I am going with the majority and saying a cuttlebug.
Santa didn't bring me any crafty goodies but did leave me some pennies to buy my own...I got some new stamps, nesties, papers and more pro markers.
Thank you so much for the chance to win...will pop a link on my blog.
Emma x

Suzanne said...

As a very late entry...........Sorry!

I know you have a Bind-It-All, Big Bite Crop-A-Dile, Craftrobo..............being the stalker that I am lol!

But you've never mentioned a Die Cutting machine........I note the concensus is that it could be a Cuttlebug.........just to be different I'm going to say........ELLISON/SIZZIX BIG SHOT..........then again it could be a Spellbinders Wizard lol!

Any of the above being a must!

Consider yourself linked!.........better late than never lol!

Hugs Suze x
