Ready, Set, Craft's One Year Blogiversary Bash - Sticker Giveaway!

Did I mention yet that I love birthday parties?  : )

When I was a kid, my favorite part of my birthday party was the goody bags that I "helped" my Mum put together for all my little friends to take home.  It was so fun picking out the kind of bag I wanted and discovering all of the great treats Mum had put inside (yes, even though I was the birthday girl, I got a goody bag as well!)

I still love goody bags and favors, and try to have some kind of takeaway for every party I host.  Remember the cupcake goody bags from Lily's first birthday party?  Or the favors from Alison's bridal shower?  Or how about the last minute Halloween goody bags for my nieces and nephew?

What I always LOVED getting in my birthday party bag was some fun stickers!  I swear, no matter how old I get I will always love me some stickers!  Stickers are fun for adults, too!  They are a great way to promote your blog or your business. You can use them as address labels, event stickers, to seal envelopes or put your child's name inside his/her books and belongings, the list could go on!

What wouldn't I do with 250 stickers? A great party memory was my 5th Birthday. I invited my entire class (of 20+ kids) plus our huge family full of cousins. We all ran around crazy playing games all day.

Happy Blogiversary!

My daughter has one of those giant cupcake - cake pans and they are very fun to make.

Congrats on a whole year!

My favorite birthday memory was decorating my own cake when I was 8. My cousins and I have birthdays around the same time, so our moms bakeds and frosted cakes for us, filled up several piping bags full of frosting, and let us loose... it was a fun, sticky mess and I loved it!

Custom stickers?! You have to be kidding?! I'm fairly certain I'm drooling right now.

My favorite birthday memory was each year having my birthday cake be the chocolate cake from Bill Knapps restaurant because that was my favorite. And when I was real little my mom would put my gifts on the dining room table and put a happy birthday banner in front. It was always so special for me! Something I plan on doing with my little guy for sure!

what a great gift Joanne!

I love uprinting I use them for all my marketing. They do a beautiful job on drop tags business cards, everything. But I have not done labels yet... My favorite birthday was when I turned 28 (LONG time ago). My mom gave me a surprise party and it was wonderful!

I'm following too. :)

Have a PEAR-fect day!!

I am a follower, my favorite memory is my sisters birthday. I baked her a banana cake and was worried about the banana turning so I put blue food coloring in it (hey I was 12). Her friends said their Mom did not allow them to eat blue cake. LOL

I would probably use them for my business, stickers to seal the clear plastic bags. I currently use tape, which is functional but not all that pretty.

And I follow you!!

Christine said...

Wow - 250 custom stickers/labels?! I am a total sticker addict!!

My favorite birthday party memory was my 8th birthday party at our house...playing pin the tail on the donkey, and laughing hysterically when our dog decided to jump into the pool and join everyone for a pool party!!! :-)

I totally thought I already commented on this. Oops! I would LOVE the stickers because I love to hand-write letters to friends and grandparents (And I always like to make them extra pretty). I'm a follower, so count me in!

Personalized stickers would be so fun to seal handwritten envelopes with! I would probably put a hand-drawn picture from one of my boys on it, so it would be the 1st thing the recipient sees in the mail! How fun. Lovin' the blog, Joanne :)
