EXTENDED UNTIL 19 NOVEMBER! (more items on the candy being added)

(This post will stay on top so check bottom for latest posts. THANKS!)

Hi everyone! I can't believe I wasn't blogging for...5days now! Anyways, hope all of you are doing well. My DS2 Jhetro has a fever which started only early morning today so I didn't get to do much but to look after him. Good thing I was able to grab this chance to post as he's busy watching his favourite Thomas the Tank movie.

Yes, I'm offering my very first blog candy. Yay! I've been meaning to give a candy even before my birthday last month but I just didn't get the chance. But anyway, anytime can be a blog candy time so I hope you'll enjoy my 1st ever candy! But before that, I have to share with you first this altered caddy which I finished a few days back. The first shot is the front view. I bought this wooden caddy in it's raw state for $4 in one of our dollar shops here. There are areas that were already painted and these areas are the edges (the orangey areas that you can easily notice).

I then used my Heidi Grace paper that perfectly complemented the colour of the paint. I didn't put anything on the sides as I only focused on embellishing the front and the back. The alphas were made using my Cuttlebug Olivia alphas and I used my Xyron 5" Creative Station to adhere them. I had fun mixing and matching my Primas with my buttons! LOL! And I really like the final outcome of this caddy.

Here's the back view:

I also sponged the paper edges with my Versacube (Bark) and Mod Podged the whole caddy!

AND now for the BLOG CANDY. Here's what you gonna get:

24 pcs of 6x6 Heidi Grace papers (well, they're almost like a cardstock in quality)

2 single clear stamps (by Imaginisce and Inkadinkado)

1 spool of chocolate-coloured satin ribbon

(will throw in some other stuffs as well)

The rules are just simple if you wanna play along.

1) Leave a comment telling me what you think of my altered caddy, and putting a link of my blog candy onto your blog so that others may see it as well,


2) Make a card using my altered caddy as your inspiration.

Don't forget to put a number before your comment and the link to your card so I can see what you've came up to. For example: #1 then your comment.

Kindly leave your email as well when making a comment so that I'll know where to contact you just in case you win. :)

This is open until 19 November, Wednesday 11:59PM (AEST) and I will draw a winner on Thursday, 20 November at 10am (AEST).

Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!

ETA: I'm extending my blog candy offer for I know it's a very short notice between making the card and the draw day. Now you have more time and chance to create.

And sorry if I wrote October hahaha! It's supposed to be November. Gee! Thanks Bec for correcting me, I haven't noticed that myself.

Come join the fun!



  1. Hey there! Sorry your son is not well! hope he recovers quickly! Hope you are OK!!
    What fun! I'll see what I can do! :)

  2. I love the caddy! You did a great job on it.

  3. I haven't seen a little catty like this! It could be so useful--in the house OR stamp room! I'm thinking a good place for some copics!!

  4. Hey Jhet. I've been looking at your dates for your blogcandy give away. By my calculations and calendar, those dates match the year 2006 and not 2008. And this is November 15 but your give away
    is October. Am I missing something?

  5. Oh by the way I LOVE your caddy!! I think it looks really good and will be great for storing craft stuff in!

    and I made a card It's HERE


  6. Hi Jhet, I managed to complete your challenge, and you can find
    my card on my blogsite:
    Love your little basket.


♥ would love to hear from you ♥
