Giveaway Time!


Okay. This is going to be a quick one so be sure to post your comment right away. I'll draw a name tomorrow night & that person will win some cute stuff! A tote bag, a reversible headband & a travel tissue cozy.

Let's make this a little more interesting too.....tell me something.....anything....maybe something quirky about yourself.

Here are a few of mine:

* I think that I have a deep voice. I often ask Dylan if my voice is deep. Like too deep for a girl. He assures me that he never would have married me if he didn't like my voice. Then he tells me that he wouldn't describe it as "deep" but more like "husky". Now what girl wouldn't want to be told that her voice is husky? You all heard my voice in the video a few posts back. It's not deep, right? I'm just completely nuts.

* Last week I noticed that my bottom lip comes up a little in the center. I'm pretty positive that it's always been like this...but I also noticed that I bite my bottom lip whenever I'm concentrating on sewing.....which we all know I've been doing a ton of. So, even though I know this is the natural shape of my lip I also all of the sudden think that maybe my biting it has made it this way. So whenever I think about it, I pinch my bottom lip & try to plump it out. Again, I know.....I'm nuts.

* I also cry at every movie I watch. Always. Sometimes it's full on can't stop myself & sometimes I just get a little misty. Dylan also knows the exact point of the movie that I'll do this & he looks over at me & laughs.

Ok let's hear yours. :)

Hey Candace. I can't think of anything other then I won't wash anything nasty from dishes to laundry. For example, if a tupperware has been in the fridge a while I will throw it away. I have even chucked a pot my hubby put in the fridge that was hiding way deep in the corner. Or if Michael messes his undies I will for sure chuck those. I know so wasteful right. I just can't do it though. Thankfully I have another option other then clothes diapers or I would be buying new cloth diapers all the time!!!

Jessica said...

i am LOVIN this stuff for the giveaway!
so something about me?....
i can fit my fist in my mouth!

so imberrasing.

cbhoff said...

I have a weird fear of grates on the street/sidewalk. I can't, CAN'T walk over them. I think if I do it will give and I'll fall right in and break my shins.

I also think my voice is too deep. Abnormally deep, especially right after I wake up or talk on the phone. Brandt says the same thing as Dylan.

Mrs. Schwartz said...

Something quirky... I've been following your blog for a very long time. I stumbled across it on the Blogger.com homepage, Sparkle Power went across the ticker and I clicked on it. I’ve read every post from then on. Something most people don't know is that your blog, and more specifically your photographs, inspired me to buy an SLR camera and attempt to learn to take pictures as beautiful as yours.

Congrats on a successful first market.

Janae said...

I don't think your voice is "husky"! And I love this giveaway. I love all your stuff.

About me...I have a huge mole that sticks out on my head. It's been growing and changed color since I've had kids, so I'll be going to the doctor to get it removed. It's GROSS.

And I can't whistle or snap my fingers. Or blow very big bubbles with gum. I'm just not coordinated. :)

Maggie said...

I cry at anything patriotic. A soldier in full dress uniform or the national anthem.

I'm a complete pen snob. I won't use a pen that isn't mine and I'll spend hours trying out pens.

Best of luck with the giveaway.

Sunshine said...

I have one eye that is bigger than the other - Well, not the eye, just one eye opens slightly more than the other, so that anytime I notice it, I obsess over it, trying to open the smaller eye more without changing the other one...

Stacy said...

My chocolate cravings are so intense that I resort to munching on semi-sweet morsels intended for baking...

Love the give-away items... your stuff is rockin'.

Toiling Ant said...

I walk on tip-toes while cooking.

Candace said...

oh, man. you guys are cracking me up already!

Christina, I don't think your voice is deep at all so I'm feeling better about my own voice already. Also, I think we are crazy in a lot of the same ways.

Jessica - I can touch my tongue to my nose & chin. I have a massive cow tongue...very lady like, right.

Mrs. Schwartz - that's so cool. best of luck with your photography...thanks for the nice compliments...i'm just winging it, though. :)

Janae - dang moles that go nuts when we're pregnant. good luck with the removal....that's no fun.

sunshine - seriously, too funny. you made me laugh.

Candace said...

stacy - I do the same thing!!!!

Candi said...

love the cute stuff!
my strange thing is that i love ketchup, marinara sauce and salsa, but i cannot eat plain tomatoes. they gross me out!

chanel said...

hmmmm....what don't you know about me? when i am cleaning my house i pretend that i am in a surprise contest and any minute the contest people are going to ring my doorbell and come check to see if i have the cleanest house and I DO, and I win!!!! freak!

Patti said...

There isn't enough space to list the quirky . . .

How about this? I went to finishing school . . .

giddygoat said...

I'm Amanda. I have severe nerve damage in my fingers from several clumsy accidents, one involving a MixMaster at Christmas time.
I eat peanut butter every single day. Even if it's 100 degrees out I have to sleep under the covers. I brush my teeth so hard that I go through a toothbrush every two weeks.
Wow, I sound super OCD.

rachel said...

Some people bite their nails but I eat the skin off my fingers when I am nervous. Just the part that is dried up.Dang,that is gross,huh?? Well, I hope that story helped me to win!

Angie said...

something strange about myself. When I cook dinner I talk to the food. Sorda the way gardners talk to their plants. Saying strange things like "there ya go little chicken breast, a nice bath in marinade sauce". My kids love it though.

Michelle said...

I moved my part in my hair about 1cm and I think it gave me a whole new look... I think I'm the only one who noticed though!

i like your quirky thing Chanel!

ash said...

I have an anxiety attack whenever I get into an elevator. I'd rather walk several flights of stairs WITH my children than ride.

I would rather wear a broken bra than shop for a new one.

AND

I used to think I had a nice singing voice, but one daughter tells me to turn on the ipod instead of sing, and the other just yells "stop it" while her hands are over her ears. Mr. Colton isn't much better...I usually get a "shhhh" from him too!

krystie said...

well my big toes are ski jumps...ive always hated my feet and my family called them angry feet because they are so nasty.
cute giveaway!

Ariane said...

I am excited about this giveaway, that tote is so cute! Hmmm, quirky, I have no cartiledge (sp?) in my nose so I can bend it all different ways (I can almost touch the tip of my nose to my eye). I think I learned this stupid human trick in HS in some class that I was really bored in.

Rebecca said...

i toss deadheaded marigold blooms at my border collie who catches them in her mouth.... i paint my nails with ridge filler and then don't put polish on top.... i love to eat dough of any kind, almost better than the baked end product...

Rachel@oneprettything.com said...

Fun! I love that headband!

No matter what time I get up or what I have going on during the day my first meal HAS to be breakfast. It's 11am now and I won't have time to eat until 1 but it still has to be breakfast! I'll be going to a cafe and getting a pancake. =)

Candace said...

you guys are all weirdos!!

chanel- ha ha. you are even more crazy to me now.

ariane- no way! you need to put a video of that on your blog. maybe it was during that math class we had together. i hate math.

Melissa Everett said...

ok I think this is too funny! And kinda hard for me as your sister to think of something that you dont know about me...
*I can touch my tounge to my nose (Cant you do that too Candace?)
*small people (midgets) scare me

**Oh and I think I have a deep voice too
**And Cherine... I am the same way!! Wasteful Wasteful Wasteful! It just grosses me out knowing what it looked like when it was dirty!!!

alexandra said...

Ok, Candace... here are a few quirky things about me
- I wear a contact lens in only my left eye (the vision in my right is perfect!)
- dirty dishes have to go to the LEFT of the sink or I get crazy
- I never buy the first item on a shelf - always reach back for the second
- I have to have tea in the morning or I get grouchy and tired.
- my elbows are double jointed
- I don't like junk food but if you put a bowl of 'Cheesies' in front of me I can't control myself.
Love this give-away - I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this one!!
A.

Marcie said...

Wow, you guys are making me wish I had more quirks because these are so funny to read. Well, let's see ... I have to clean my house in the exact same order every day. It doesn't matter if the kitchen is the dirtiest, I will still start in my bedroom and work my way out. Also, anytime I pass by a relfective surface (mirrors, windows etc.) I check myself out. Vain huh? :)

wrightfamily said...

I LOVE this give-a-way!! My quirky thing is that I love making lists. Grocery list, menu list, project list, "to do" list, it really doesn't matter. If I can't sleep at night, I get up and make a list of things "to do" the next day. Then I feel much better.

Waldeck Dry Goods said...

Ooooohhh... a giveaway! And such cute things, too. Something about me... I love doing laundry and hanging it on the line. I am also really afraid of our chickens.

Colleen said...

When I have PMS I MUST EAT a Hershey's Symphony candy bar with almonds and don't bother even looking at it cause I won't give you a piece!

Amber said...

I am just like the wrightfamily....I am a list freak. I get up out of bed too if I think of something.

I am a freak about my pillow too. I sleep on it a certain side & everything. I always know if someone has touched it.

Bridget said...

I'm a lurker de-lurking, funny how giveaways do that ;o), and I love your blog!

I have to put my make-up on standing on one leg like a flamingo. Even 9 months pregnant I still do it. I don't know why but my make-up just goes on better when I stand that way.

Susan Cahill said...

My toes are webbed so I can't wear flip flops! I always found this annoying but not a critical flaw.
Looks like great giveaway, thanks for sharing.

Doreen said...

Wahooo! Love your giveaway! :)Hmmm a quirk well my eyes always look so small! It looks like I'm chinese! LOL I'm not but my Mom will often make that comment to me. :) They always look squishy, weird to me. Probably due to my Hypothyroidism!! Hope to win these goodies!

Doreen said...

Oh, I just wanted to post that someone once said, 'we are our worst critics' and it's soo true! I am always obsessive about how I look and everything. Always to seem to be nitpicking everything about my body.

Candace said...

bridget - I do that too! do you prop one leg up on the sink?

amanda said...

hey girl! love the things your giving away. just wanted to say hi and that my thing would be that i hate having trash in my car. i go a little crazy trying to clean it out. plus i fall asleep really fast, which drives eric crazy if were talking i'll fall asleep.

Keri said...

I may have divulged this before, but I can't really lift my eyebrows. As a kid, I couldn't at all...now I can, only ever so slightly.

Julia said...

I love your gifties!!
Something about me...I think it's funny to cross my eyes at my kids, but it's gross when they do it back! and ridiculus, I knbow but I'm alittle scared of ANTS! Ants of all things. ew.

Ruthanna said...

What a great giveaway...a perfect one for my first comment.
I am possessive of my paper towels and it irritates me so when my husband uses more than one.
I love your stuff and your blog! I'll be making hoards of crayon rolls for nieces at Christmas.

Abbey said...

What a great giveaway! Well, I tried to think of something else because this one about me sounds a little gross, but I have two toenail on my baby toe. Really, it is not as sick as it sounds. It looks like one toenail. I swear.

ollie said...

I still check your blog all the time -- I love your stuff! I was actually really sad to see that someone had already bought that quilt. I really wanted to get it!

Anyway, my weird thing is that until about 3 years ago I was still SUPER afraid of the dark. Our last apartment was situated right next to a street lamp and therefore it was way bright in our room at night. My husband obviously hated it, but I LOVED it.

Hello Pineapples! said...

I've just come across your blog via Craftzine and I like it. I also like giveaways, so I thought I'd comment.

I'm a little surprised that there are others who share my quirks (one eye smaller than the other, never taking the first thing on the shelf), but what is probably my biggest quirk is that I won't eat "pointy" french fries. In my world, there are "square" and "pointy" ended french fries. Since there are sometimes more pointy ones than I'd like, I break off the ends and then eat the rest of the french fry. Why? no idea. My best guess is that it may be related to a story told to me at a sleepover in grade six about a woman whose throat was (allegedly) cut open by the edge of a dorito.

Rolyndia said...

Let's see something about me, I have to be early for everything, I don't like being late and have people stare at me. Also, I can't walk over grates in the sidewalk and I don't let the kids either.

Heather said...

I don't like tomatoes....
but enjoy ketchup, fresh salsa and even tomato based soups.

rose said...

(this is my 2nd attempt so i hope i don't post twice by accident!)

i have been cracking up reading these quirks. so funny! i love it.

so mine would be that i don't like anyone touching my calves on my legs. it creeps me out!!

plus, i don't knowingly eat leftovers over 24 hrs old, or anything past the "best-if-used-by" date. even if it is past midnight one day after the date, i won't touch it.

and if a sequel comes out i have to rewatch the movies that come before it before i can watch the new one. hence, i still haven't seen the new indiana jones.

Gem said...

These are really funny - maybe I'm not such a wierdo after all !

Ok some "quirky" things about me:
1. I am the most clumsy person I know. If there is anything I could possibly hurt myself on you can guarantee I will!
2. I have a phobia about gravy. It makes me gag and I can't have it in the house.
3. Apparently when I crochet or I'm on the laptop I rub my feet against each other. I don't even notice I do it but it makes Mr P giggle...

Great topic for comments btw
x

Beth H said...

A quirky thing... I have a little flat spot on the front of my nose...but only on one side. SO does my mom. What a honorable family trait right?! makes me laugh either way.

KL said...

i hate drains. hate them. i won't fish anything out of the disposal, ever....ewwww

Grace =) said...

Your stuff is beautiful! I don't have a lot of interesting facts about myself, but I can whistle through my teeth. When I'm not wearing braces, which I am right now. :p

I wish I could sew like you do!

Walling Family said...

I have a home preschool/daycare and people think I am crazy, 6 kids total all day. I love it

shannon said...

Hi There, I just found you from a link at JC Handmade. I love this little tote you are giving away, so cute. My quirky thing is that marching bands always make me cry.

Rosanne said...

Hmm, I can't whistle not sure why?

pincushionpoints said...

OK, so I love the items in your give away this time. How fun to post quirky things. I'm cracking up reading the comments today.

I was once bitten by a cheetah.
My eyes are different sizes - the eyeball itself so I can't see without glasses.
I hate to have anything touch my nose.

Michele said...

These comments have been great to read! I also eat peanut butter just about everyday...with a spoon, straight out of the jar. I also cannot eat something if it's past the "Best if Used By" date (just like your other reader...one minute past midnight and I'm tossing it out...I'm so wasteful, I know.)

Another thing I do is whenever I'm shopping anywhere, I have to grab the item that's like the third or forth one toward the back of the shelf/rack. It drives my husband nuts. But I just cannot bring myself to buying the first thing on the shelf.

Cherine said...

Candace who are all these people! W-o-W!!!

Jessica said...

For some reason I always read magazines back to front instead of the normal front to back. Kinda strange!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Tracy said...

Since college (20 years ago), when I shower, I wash my body in the same order every time: shampoo hair, condition hair, wash body, shave underarms, shave right leg, rinse out hair conditioner, shave left leg, "wring out" my hair and skin. Wringing out the skin is sort of like using your hands as squeegees. It keeps my towel from getting too wet and unusable for the next day's shower. If I do anything out of order, I end up with an unshaven leg or conditioner in my hair when I get out.
Just imagine then my husband asks if he can join me...No WAY!! What chaos and confusion that will cause!!

Rolyndia said...

I thought I would leave another quirky thing about me.

I can twist my tongue to the left, but not to the right. I can't make the Spanish 'rrrrr' sound either, it is pretty funny to watch me try.

Rolyndia said...

I don't know how to edit a post, but wanted to also add that I don't like odd numbers. They have to be even, I know that sounds strange since I have triplets, but every thing ends up being even numbered.

angela said...

I blog stalk you from Shannon Swenson's blog...you are so creative and crafty.

I love great white sharks...I think thats pretty quirky, also sorry for posting when I don't know you but I am a sucker for a chance to win something free!!!

andrea said...

Lots of comments Candace! Crazy. So am I allowed to be in your give-away? I seem to have good luck on these.....

So something weird about me.....
I LOVE baths, but I am extremely picky about how clean the tub is. I won't take a bath unless it's a virgin tub....so no hotel rooms or old houses. Which means I have never bathed in our bathtub! I hate that I am so freaked out by it, but I wouldn't enjoy myself. What's the point of a bath when your not relaxed. So only showers for me until we get a new tub!

royaloaker said...

yayyyy, a contest! Thanks for doing that! I put salt on my watermelon and always order a lemon in my diet pop (is that weird?). I can recite all 50 states in alphabetical order. I love singing karaoke, and my song of choice is You Were Meant for Me by Jewel. I have never ice skated in my entire life either. Ever. :)

The Nelsons said...

I am great at using my toes to do things. I can pinch, pick up things, and even make them crack. Kind of gross but, being in my third trimester it is nice having handy toes to pick things up with.

Love the give away!

Amanda K said...

What a fun giveaway! I am so excited! A couple funny things about me are: I hate having my belly button touched... Hate it! Also, I have eaten road kill before and I got to go to boy scout camp and even earned some awards there!

Jenna said...

oh this is hillarious. love reading about other crazies! here's mine:
1.i lock my toes when i fold toes. it drives my husband nuts and he always "unlocks them". (my daughter locks her toes too.
2. i won't drink the last 1/2" of milk in a gallon. i'm positive its where all the germies live.
3. mouth open when mascara goes on.
4. toilet paper must come over the roll, not under. not ever.
5. i sit criss cross applesauce in most chairs, or with one knee up.
i'm sure there's more. i'm a freak.

Jen said...

This is such a fun give away! Candace your stuff is just beautiful by the way. Let's see quirky things about me.
1. I have an anti-foot fetish in that I just don't really like feet.
2. I have allergies and actually scratch the roof of my mouth with my tongue and it makes an annoying little noise that drive my hubby crazy, but I can't help it.
3. I am the worst pregnant person. Forget glowing, feeling great, looking adorable with a little basketball out in front...no not me. I don't glow, I feel horrible physically and emotionally, and I look anything but cute or adorable.
4. I am extremely frugal sometimes to my detriment.

Rachel said...

I know the contest is over, but this is too funny to not comment!

-Anything moldy or even thinking about something moldy makes my cheeks tingle and I get goosebumps.

-My biggest (unreasonable) fears are a shark attack or alligator attack, so I don't like estuaries... where both COULD be possible.

-I pick my bottom lip constantly and it always looks terrible. My husband has tried the last several years to get me to stop, but I don't listen.

Post a Comment

I looove comments. Thank you so much for taking the time. :)
