BLACK FRIDAY BLOG HOP

Welcome to Love4Stamps.blogspot.com and the Black Friday Blog Hop!
If you've come from visiting http://www.almabrooksblog.blogspot.com//, you're in the right place! Aren't Alma's projects AMAZING!!!!

If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop, you can go to http://www.crazyaboutcricut.blogspot.com/ and start at the beginning. Each blog has created a project centered around the shopping or using the colors black and green. (I used black, green and pink) Be sure to visit each blog for inspiration and fun blog candy!

Here is the list in order in case you get lost along the way!

MUAH HAHAHAHA! And you thought I would actually be home posting this???? UM NO! This is a scheduled post if I've ever had a scheduled post!!! I am shopping my little heart out right now hopefully picking up a teal Expression along with ALL of the Cricut Lites my hands can hold. I kid you NOT! And my honey wants a 55' T.V. Um seriously is that necessary? "You know honey if you wait I can get more Cricut cartridges." HEHEHE just kidding I didn't say that but I thought it and then I thought "bad Raven." Okay so...

Here is the project I chose to come up with. Because of all the chaos and shenanigans I like to attempt to  be organized on Black Friday. "ATTEMPT" being the operative word. So this year I made an organizer out of...yup you guessed it paper bags. I have pockets for Santa wish lists and places to keep my receipts in case something doesn't fit or I find it somewhere else cheaper. I also have a section to insert my ads. Walli world price matches, SCORE! Thanks for looking y'all! Let me know what you think.




I have two giveaways for this blog hop so two lucky ducks will win something. The first something is from my AMAZING friend Angelica at Market Street Stamps, she makes THE BEST Stamps. One lucky winner will win the new BFF set pictured below.

Another lucky winner will win a Cricut Dust Cover made by yours truly. Please just tell me in the comments what size Cricut you have.

In order to win you must:
1.) Leave a comment on this post here
2.) Become a follower (This helps so that you can see if you won!!! I will NOT be able to find you so please check back) I've had to redraw a few winner in the last month! :(
Now go on over and check out what the AMAZING Misty has in store for you at
