Blog Candy Winner!

Happy Friday!  The day has come to announce the winner of the blog candy!!!

First, I'd like to thank all of you for your compliments on my new craft room and your support.  I really appreciate it.  I am also glad to see some of you got inspiration for your own craft room!

The Blog Candy was this handy dandy ribbon carousel:

And without further due, the random winner of the blog candy is:

Patti J!

Feel free to visit her on her blog and leave some love! 

Congrats, Patti!   Enjoy getting your ribbons organized!  Please send me your snail mail address so you can receive your prize!  You can contact me at:

And speaking of treats, wouldn't it be nice to get a cold, refreshing drink in the middle of a hot day?  I had one of those days not long ago so I treated myself and my daughter to a smoothie.  Then it occurred to me it would be nice to surprise someone else with a refreshment so I made a little note card to go with the drink:

It's a simple little note but can put a big smile on someone's face!  And they can cool off too!  I used stamps from Gina K Designs 'Enjoy the Summer' kit.  The little wind thingie (Help me!  I forgot what its called!  LOL) is paper pieced with DP from the same kit.  Sorry I just went blank! Spanish is my first language and while my English is pretty good I get 'pockets' in the language every now and then!  Although I get them in Spanish too...  I think the 'pockets' are in my brain!  LOL.  So… Is it a handheld windmill?  When I say windmill I think of the big ones…  I googled 'handheld windmills' and the picture came up but I thought it had a specific name… A single word…  Maybe not!  Oh, goodness, this is going to be in my head until I find out! 

Anyways, I just wanted to share this little project and spread some summer cheer! So enjoy your day and stay cool! 

By the way, if you have not heard yet, there is a  blog hop today at Card Crafty Club.  Visit them for a chance to win some candy and get summer inspiration!  I will sure check it out! They will have blog hops every month and I am excited to be participating next month. Stay tuned! 

Have a bright day!


  1. Hi Axia, you have a lovely blog and I've enjoyed my visit. Congrats Patti, great win! Thanks so much for visiting me and I hope to see you again soon.

  2. Oh my goodness, Axia - thank you so much! I have not been able to do any blog surfing since last week - what a nice surprise this was! Thanks, too, for mentioning my blog here. You are too sweet! I totally love your drink tag! How fun would it be to put a gift card to Dairy Queen or someplace inside the empty glass, and hang the darling pinwheel tag on the outside! Thanks for the inspiration :)

    1. Pinwheel, that's it!!! I knew there was a word for it! LOL Thanks, Patti!
