I hope I can figure out how to do this right. I haven't added photos in the middle of a blog post before. I was really super lucky last week - not counting the pizza in the microwave episode - and won both blog candy and some Hip Hop stamps!

Now, if you don't know about Hip Hop, let me tell you, you are seriously missing out. Unity Stamp Company gives away something like $300 in stamp products every Thursday over on their forum at SplitCoastStampers.com. It starts at 10am Central and ends when we all poop out. I usually make it 'til around midnight.

Okay, so first I won these stamps for guessing what Sawyer was going to be for Halloween. They are Thank You Words. I can definitely see where they'll be useful. Thank you Angela!

I also won some blog candy from ticketbelle. Thanks Michelle!! She sent Simply Said, a really sweet set of sentiments designed by AJ Otto.

On top of my winnings, I ordered a couple sets of Christmas stamps and the fabulous Unity Handles. I used them to stamp up some images for an image swap and I am in love! They are so much better than any other acrylic block I've ever tried to use. There is really no comparison. Here are my new stamps and handles.

I also picked up some of the other Christmas stamps, but I didn't want to go overboard on the photos, so I made do with just these.
I took a beginning stamping class in August. The person teaching it had just learned about Unity - and the shop had just begun carrying them. I was intrigued and, of course, came home and did a web-search, because that's how I roll. I get interested in something and have to look it up. I found the most incredible group of people. Talented, friendly, generous... Like I said, I've been really lucky.
