Oodagoodies!!


I know it has been LONG overdue, but I was organizing my craft space and realized that I never gave this away! A while ago, I won Melanie's complete Hippy Hoppy Collection on GinaK's blog. I already had two of the sets, so guess who benefits from that? YOU! That's right! Just leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite thing you've done this summer. You have until Wednesday, July 23 at 10am EST. I'll select a random winner and post the winner shortly after. Good luck and thanks for visiting!

How nice of you to share! I love Gina K stamps. And I'd love to win. What a great birthday present for me--mine's on the 24th!

My favorite thing this summer is coming up in a couple of weeks. My brother and his family come east from California every summer and leave my nieces with my father for a couple of weeks after they go home. I always take them for a weekend, and they LOVE making cards! They sure would love this set, too!

Inkylin said...

Nothing exciting here this summer I'm afraid to say. I have been really enjoying the CHA reports, of course, wishing I could have been there. Thanks for sharing with us.

Lisa said...

Haven't done it yet, but I hope to drive to Austin to visit our best friends. They moved there a few months ago and we miss them terribly!

Michelle said...

This looks like a great fun set. Because of the high fuel costs.. we've been staying local. We've explored more of Idaho's landmarks and fishing/camping spots. Its been alot of fun.

Pegg S said...

What a cute set!! My vacation is next week so that will soon be my favorite "thing" :) but for now... the best thing I've done this summer is take a duck tour in my city (1st time!) on my bday and I got to drive it while it was in the water. That was very cool!

Maria Gurnsey said...

my favorite thing so far this summer has been the fourth of july and the same weekend my 10 year class reunion. it was nice to see everyone again and we still knew how to have fun even after to kids!! we turned in earlier than we use to but what a blast!!!

Kerry J. said...

My fave things are still to come - my mom's 60th birthday party and going camping with my family. Thanks for the chance to win!

Lori said...

I love this set! I enjoy your blog and your creations. You are very talented! TFS

My favorite thing to this summer is 4-wheeling on the mountain. My DH and I take our 4 kids (one 5-year old and 3-year old triplets) camping and 4-wheeling a lot. It's the best!!

Lori

Oma said...

Believe it or not, my favourite thing this summer is the fact that my DH had his ankle fusion surgery on July 11th. It had originally been scheduled for Oct. 31st. He has severe degenerative arthritis in his right ankle and was in a lot of pain. Recuperation will be lengthy with no weight bearing for several weeks. Having the surgery in the summer means he can wear shorts and I don't have to cut up his jeans etc. to fit over the large cast he has on. This just might be the most original favourite summer event that is posted to your blog. Thanks for giving me the chance to win some blog candy. As a fairly new "card maker" I can use all the stash I can get!

Mary Dawn said...

i got a job...doesn't sound too fun, but it DOES mean i can buy more stamps n paper! LOL

Cindy H. said...

It's been a quiet summer so far but a vacation on Cape Cod is coming up:) I rather like quiet summers - I sit on my deck and read rubberstamp and papercraft magazines.

Thank you for offering this cute set from Gina K. I'd love to win it! It makes me smile when I remember a card you created with it - where the hips move - too cute!!!

Brenda said...

My favorite thing I did this summer was camping with my family. It is the besst. I would love to win these stamps I love Gina K stamps they are awesome. Thanks for the chance.

Michelle said...

What a fun question! I just moved and started a new job, so no summer vacation for me. That said, I think my favorite activities this summer have been weekend get-togethers with family and friends for holidays and birthdays.

Stephanie said...

Wow! I would love to have this set! :D I would have to say that the favorite thing I have done this summer is stamp! :D I have my summers off so I finally get to wake up and stamp right away! Wahoo! :D Thanks so much for the generous gift Charmaine!

blduran said...

My favorite thing about this summer has been being able to sit around, relax, and have fun by the pool. I'm a teacher and there's just not time to do that during the school year!! I've made plenty of time to stamp also!! Hope I can win that candy ;) Thanks, Charmaine!

Michelle said...

I'm a teacher so I've been taking it easy this summer. I've had lots of time to stamp and relax, which I have really enjoyed! My time off is almost over, just 2 1/2 more weeks to go.

Amy said...

I'm a teacher and so I really do get summer off! I have had two favorites! 1 - spending lots of time with my 2 year old! 2 - having friends over to stamp EVERY Wednesday. It has been great.

Cat said...

how lucky for you?! & how lucky for one of us :)

my husband and i just returned from a two-week boating trip with friends. we spent time in the bahamas and the florida keys before having to come home. it was SO relaxting!

tara wiersma said...

my favorite thing about this summer was visiting my best friend in kansas city,mo. it was such a blast to have a girls weekend. we went sight seeing and got our nails done,and much more. it was such a good time,and i have great memories.

cadnileb said...

How sweet of you! My favorite thing this summer has been the small mini-vacations camping I've taken with my friends. :-) Thanks again!

Sharon said...

Thanks so much for the opportunity to win this fantastic blog candy! My favorite thing that we have done this summer is take the kids to DisneyWorld! It was the first time for the kids (ages 14, 12 & 8)to fly and it was the first time any of us had been there - what an adventure!

Melissa said...

How generous of you Charmaine!

My favorite thing I've done this summer would be the impromptu beach trip my husband I took one weekend. We only stayed one night, but it was awesome to be away from all of the normalcy at home and to just look at the ocean...

Thanks for the chance to win!

Many Blessings,
M.

scrappinmominky said...

My favorite thing this summer was our vacation in Hilton Head. We stayed at an awesome resort and had a great time.

Tara Macfarlane said...

Hi Charmaine! I think this set is just sooooo cute! You're so very generous to be giving it away! Even though the summer is still young, my favorite thing we've done so far is: My oldest son Ryan was dying to go to Dairy Queen "as a family". Well, we all had a nice lunch together and then took the kids (I have a 2 year old and 7 year old) to the park to run off the ice cream. I brought a blanket along and my husband and I hung out on the blanket watching the kids play. It was fantastic.
Hope you're having a wonderful summer yourself!
Tara

Missy said...

OMGosh, I so wish I can have this set. I would love to have a Melanie stamp set.
My favorite thing this summer. We have done a lot but not much I would have liked to have done.
We did take a nice trip to Lake Tahoe, we have my brother's wedding to go to at the end of August that I am looking forward to.

Anonymous said...

OK where I live it is winter right now, not summer, but we still have such lovely weather here that it can't really be classed as winter in the true sense of the word. My DD turns 21 this month and in South Africa that is the coming of age for a child and is THE big birthday. Yesterday we had the official birthday party and she invited 16 friends over to go for a micro lite flight! Very scary, but very exhilirating!! One of the things that should be on your 100 things to do before I die list!

Jewels said...

My favortie part of summer will be this weekend. My brothers and I are outting a pond with rustic wood surrounding it. Along with flowerbeds and and a few more "rusic" style things to match. The pond was started in my Dad's yard and he was working on it shortly before he passed away. SO it will be in honor of my Dad and set up according to the plans that he made up!

Lisaa728 said...

What a cute stamp set! Thank you for giving us a chance to try it out! My favorite thing has to be the beach day our family had last weekend. Since we live on the gulf side of FL, it is usually pretty tame. But there was a storm brewing in the gulf so the waves were up & the kids just loved it! Even though I got the sunburn of a lifetime, it was fun watching them enjoy themselves so much!

Alexandra said...

Oooh, Charmaine - I LOVE this set and don't have it!!! That hippo is so dang cute, how nice and generous of you to share!! My best part of this summer was my oldest child coming home from college, since I had not seen him since Christmas! We spent a week out on the lake living on the houseboat, and it was wonderful family time! He has gone back now, and I really miss him but loved the time we spent together!!

*STAMPIN HUGS* Alex

Lailo said...

Thanks for this great give away, it is really kind of you. My favorite and special occasion - my mom is visiting my family from Central Asia. It's been three years since I've seen my family, many wonderful and sad things happened since then. Among them - passing of my dear grandparents, arrival of my fifth nephew and one of the most exciting events - my son was born two years ago. Since we could not travel to see my family, my mom finally decided to come and stay with us for a couple of weeks. It is her first time in New York and her first time meeting her grandson. Although it can be overwhelming at times, we try to spend as much time together and our days are filled with joy and excitement. I am so thankful we have this opportunity to reconnect and for my son to get to know his grandma. So my favorite thing this summer - making special memories. Best,

Janet Swofford said...

I think my favorite thing is just spending time with my family , away from the crazy schedules and busyness of the school year. Our children are 20 and 17 and usually going in different directions. Our 20 year old is away at college during the school year and our 17 year old is very busy with high school and her friends. So just having a meal together or going to a movie or taking a walk together is very special. They grow up so fast!
Thanks for the chance to win the Ginak stamps, very cool! I love your blog ! Thanks for all of the inspiration.
Janet

Theresa said...

I am having a great summer. I took a class with my daughter (who is sixteen), so got to spend some time with her. I also ordered and stamped with my very first Gina K stamps and now I am addicted.

My sister has this set and I got to use it recently. I love it! I still have a few stamped images left, but they are precious few. Thanks for the chance to win!

Amy said...

I would LOVE to win this set Charmaine! I'd say my favorite thing so far this summer is having the boys home, the hubby home (unemployed) and being all together! I thought I'd be going crazy, but it's really been nice. We've grilled lots of great foods and had lots of fun being together!

Hugs,
Amy

Jamie A. said...

So far this summer my favorite thing has been my standing bowling date with my children and my best friend. We go every Wednesday and have lunch and a game (or two, or three).

Looking forward to the rest of the summer -- it's going too fast!

Jamie

Connie said...

I absolutely love this set and winning it would so make my day!!! My favorite thing this summer (so far) would be our vacation we took two weeks ago. We are also going to an amusement park in three weeks that I haven't been to in 20 years so that will have to be my next favorite!!

Dana said...

Our trip to NY was hands down the best so far! Having my daughter's port removed signified an end to her chemo and the start of being cancer free!!

Cheryl said...

That is very generous of you and I would really love to have this set. We just returned home from a week camping in Williamsburg, VA, so that would have to be my favorite thing I have done this summer. Our grandkids came also and that is our chance to do some serious bonding with them as they live 8 hours from us. Thanks again.
Cheryl Sims

karen m. said...

My favorite thing this summer has been getting together with friends for a weekly bible study for a young man that has won the struggle over crack cocaine. Just to see the strength and joy of God shining through this young man has been the best thing I could have ever been a part of this summer!!!! Thank you for offering this stamp set. It has been on my wish list. Hope it will be mine...

Allison said...

WOW! I have been wanting this set!
My favourite thing I've done this summer is go to the Mayan Riviera with my boyfriend. It was so beautiful and so nice to get away!

Julie said...

Wow, thanks for the chance to win. My favorite thing that I did this summer just happened this weekend. My friend and I just took the train to NYC (from Northern NJ) to see The Country Girl with Morgan Freeman, Frances McDormand, and Peter Gallagher, and they were all there, no understudies. We were 3 rows from the stage in the center, they are all did a wonderful job (as expected). It was amazing. Thanks for the chance to win! ~Julie

Naomi (Urban Mummy) said...

Mary A said...

I am getting ready for Baby #2... not such a bad way to spend a summer! ;)

Anthonette said...

My favorite thing this Summer has been a trip down to Southern CA. We took my 4-year old to Legoland. Very fun.

Amy said...

You may not believe me, but I really haven't done anything too exciting this summer. Like, I've barely left my own town! So, with that said, I sure do hope my number is picked! Thanks for the chance!

Dana (*danavee*) said...

I never, ever, thought I'd say this, but the most fun I've had all summer is watching my corn grow! We live firmly in the suburbs, but I decided to plant corn, and my 5 year-old son & I LOVE to watch it's progress!

Thanks for the chance to win this fun set... it's been on my wish list for a while!

kerianne said...

My favorite thing was actually two things. :-) We don't usually travel in the summer, but this year, we took two trips to visit family. We had a great time both times!

KathyS said...

My favorite thing so far has been my break from teaching! LOL Probably the next best thing is seeing all of our kids and grandchildren at the beach last week. It was a crazy week.

Tanya said...

I would love this set! You're very kind to share!
My favorite thing is all the time I've spent with my kids and husband "doing interesting things"! Little day trips to somewhere new is actaully a really good way to 'travel' with kids!

Anonymous said...

OHH, would love to win this set. Thanks for a chance. My favorite thing this summer is celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary on 7/15, and of course shopping for scrapbooking and stamping goodies.

Amanda From: AJ's In-Sanity Center said...

My favorite things so far this summer? I took my 4yr old DD to a very large zoo, and then we just got home a few hours ago from going camping for the weekend. Her first time sleeping in a tent!! ;) Her joy and enthusiasm just couldn't be beat!

Robbin said...

I am taking vacation in August and going to Lake Tahoe, Scaramento, and Santa Cruz which I am really looking forward to! But so far the most favorite thing was making baby shower invitations for my daughter who is pregnant! This is my first grandchild and I am so excited....this stamp set would be perfect!!!

Hugs,
Robbin

The most exciting thing I've done so far this summer is take my 17 year old son freshman orientation. I am so excited that he has the opportunity and is going to college. What a blessing!! Also I turned 40 a few weeks ago and had a wonderful birthday celebration. Two fantastic events in just 2 weeks. WOW!!!!

Susan said...

My favorite things I have done this summer is help out with Vacation Bible School at my church. www.fbcjax.com
Thanks, Susan

ElyBlair said...

I got to go to the Former Soviet Union with my grandparents! It was AMAZING!!!

LMinVT said...

My entire immediate family ( which is hard enough to make happen ) went to camp (cottage on lake) as well as my parents and both brother and sister and their families. It hasn't happened since my brother got married that we were all in one place. The weather was beautiful, more family came to their nearby places as well. We all sat at the same table. I am unsure if this will happen again in a while. Thanks for the opportunity to try for your candy. Take care, Laura

Skye said...

My favorite thing so far this summer has been our family trip to Duluth. It's not far from here, but it was the first trip we have taken as a family since we got married 12 years ago. It was a blast!

Jocelyn said...

My favorite thing this summer is taking my kids to the parks with giant sprinklers which have become very popular here in Michigan parks.

Aviator girl said...

Thanks for the chance to win this set. I have been eyeing it just haven't purchased it yet. So far the highlight of my summer has been the birth of my first nephew. My sister just gave birth and even though I have a child of my own I just didn't know how special this was going to be.

inkedx2 said...

Great stamp set. My favorite thing I did this summer was spend 2 weeks touring Italy with my daughters. We had a blast and it was so much fun to spend time with my grown up girls!

Robbie

Marilyn said...

Well, this doesn't sound too fun, but it is the only out of the ordinary thing that has happened this summer - I got a new John Deere zero-turning-radius mower - and after all these years of using a riding mower on my lawn, I had to learn anew how to drive a riding mower. The learning curve is fairly steep, but by the time I finished mowing my front and back yards (about 2 hours), I think I finally had a good working knowledge of that mower. Although I will probably have to relearn when I mow again tomorrow!! That's about as fun as it is around my house this summer! LOL!!!

Shona said...

My favorite thing I've done this summer is take my kids swimming. I know this seems pretty un-exciting, but my 3 yr. old has a rare disorder called Angelman Syndrome and to say that she LOVES the water is an understatement! It is soooo fun to watch her and to watch her brother and sisters play with her.

Patti said...

My favorite thing so far this summer was the big family water fight we had with all of my husband's family. Some of them it was the first time I have even met them since we were married 10yrs ago. Most of them live in Saskatchewan and we are in British Columbia.

Melanie aka Batgirl said...

we have been camping a bit here and there through the summer! so fun with little kids! lol. Love the candy!

Mary Jane said...

This summer we drove from California to Colorado to spend time with my DH's brother and family. It was fun, relaxing, interesting and a great trip overall. The best part was just being together and spending time with family. Although I did get an afternoon to myself to go shopping at stamp and craft stores. : )

Annelies said...

I haven't done anything special yet this summer as my vacation is planned in September. I did enjoy last weekend. My family and I did an walk organized by an Belgian magazine. The weather was ok for once (we took our umbrella, but didn't have to use it). Afterwards there was a free beer, a concert and a BBQ. It was a very relaxing Sunday afternoon. Greetings from Belgium, Annelies

JoanOttevanger said...

Were about going to our vacation to Scotland we from The Netherlands This is the 1fst vacation this year because last year our daughters moving out of or home and we had a lot of DIY on there houses.

Linda said...

Well it's winter for us Aussie girls at the moment...but when it is Summer my favourite thing to do is go for a picnic in the park by one of the Gold Coast beaches, maybe Burleigh or Paradise Point....just a lovely walk along the beach in the late afternoon is a great way to finish a summer day too. Love this set and NEED it
too:0))

Pam Ford said...

The best thing I've done this summer is to spend time with my kids. Believe it or not, they're at the ages where I'm starting to realize they're not going to always be here for "summer vacation." So, we're trying to make a lot of memories.

Pam Ford, (from Pittsburgh,PA, too!)

Aunt T said...

What a great set! My most favorite thing to do in the summer (or really any time) is spending time with my family. We had a great random Sunday evening a few weeks ago - the boys were playing basketball in the pool and we cooked out. So much fun!

Teresa

Tanja said...

We went to a free family movie under the stars at the highest spot in our very flat beach town. We sat on blankets and watched the sun rise over "Mount Trashmore", a local park. The highlight was the moon rising over the hill. AFterwards, we went for McD's 49 cent cones. The kids rolled down the hill and it all felt magical and old-fashioned! Thanks for sharing your set!

I had 2 of my sisters here for 2 weeks and then my Mum and dad for 2 months, all from Ireland so this was wonderful. This set looks cute.

The highlight of my summer, or any summer yet, I was able to attend college orientation with my daughter. This is my first child to attend college, my first two children didnt. I think I was the proudest parent there. I loved seeing where her dorm is, dining hall, student center etc. This has been the most exciting thing I have ever ever done in my life!

Thank you for sharing! I love the Gina K stamps and would love to win. My favorite thing this summer was flying to Jamaica for my nephew's wedding. People flew in from Florida, New York, DC, LA and Korea for the wedding. What a fabulous place to visit. We all didn't want to leave.

Susan Sucher said...

Hi Charmaine. I got to spend a some time with my kids before they went back to school. They go year round and had a short break at the end of June thru July 4th. We also celebrated my b-day (the 4th of July). The set you're giving away is soooo cute. Hope I win!!! Cheryl in Reno-Sparks, NV

Jeni said...

My favorite thing I've done this summer is camping with my family, BBQ's, amusement park and swimming. I love just spending time with my family and friends.

MichelleH said...

My very favorite thing we've done this summer is simply spend time together. Our big leave town vacation is not until Sept. The rest of summer is spent hanging out with the kids, playing, playing, playing. Sports, crafts, movies, reading together, board games, wii, the park, the zoo, etc, etc, etc...just enjoying every minute with our three little darlings. That's been the very best thing about this summer for me.

~Denise Lynn~ said...

Wow! What fabulous blog candy! My favorite thing to do this summer has been spending the days outside watching my kids play. Time goes by so fast and pretty soon we'll be stuck inside all winter, so getting out is really fun, even in the heat! Thanks for the chance! :)

Lastel said...

The funnest thing I have done this summer was to got out to dinner with my honey , we done get to do that very often . I am hoping for someting a little more exciting to happen but not gonna get my hopes up too high !

Cassie said...

How sweet of you! My favorite thing this summer has been our family vacation to the mountains!

Karinn said...

I love hiking in the northern NV and northern CA mountains. I lead a hiking group here (with 201 members, whew!)in Reno and we've had a blast this summer. Great exercise, great learning opportunities with wild flowers and animals, and getting to know new friends. My 2 young boys often join us on our excursions too! Last weekend, my group completed a beautiful 17 miler! Thanks for letting me share, and hope to meet some of you on the trails too :0)

The funnest thing I have done this summer is gone to the beach. We live an hour from the beach and and hour from the mountains. So we get to frequent the beach a lot- but we are going to the greastest show on earth- this Thursday so I am sure that will be fun also!

Well, my first thought was "potty training" because it has been going so well. But I haven't really "done" that myself. So I would have to say that making Raspberry Jam was favorite thing that I have done so far this summer!

While this is not necessarily my favorite thing ever I potty trained and not my little girl to swim. Both have in turn made the summer so much more enjoyable. Thanks for the generous offer.

This summer several of my friends and I vowed to stamp together at least once a month. Our schedules ususally conflict and we made a special effort to get together. It has been a great time. Seeing someone elses ideas and passion can get you excited all over again for stamping. Also, in September my husband and I are going to Las Vegas. That is always fun. Thanks for the opportunity to win, love that Hippy Hoppy set.

Every Thursday, a nearby town celebrates Market Fest with bands, food vendors, childrens games and a petting zoo.
I enjoy visiting with friends, browsing the stores, buying cotton candy and listening to the music.

I went on retreat with the kids at church and just really had a great time with them; so far, it's definitely the highlight of my summer!

Thanks for the chance to win!

The best thing about summer has been just spending time with my family. My baby graduated and we had a wonderful party for him with great food, family and fun. Thanks for the chance to win a great stamp set.

My favorite thing I have done this summer is going to the beach with my family! We had about 50 people at the same condo's and it was so much fun!

Thanks for sharing!! My fav thing has been taking the kids to the pool along with supplies for me to work on my cards...poolside!! I don't spend any time in the water so it's been nice to work on cards and get a ton done!

I would have to say the summer has been nice with a new dog and we have spent time at the doggie park. My DH and dog have had some fun times.

Just hanging out and stamping. My four older kids have been busy doing the camping thing. Hopefully now we can vacation just a tad...

We were able to visit my parents this summer. They live 6 hours away so we don't get to see them that often. While there I took a class at Archiver's (with no children)! IT was so fun! Thanks for sharing your goodies!

we have had a crazy summer but the best thing...we found a new church home! We have also had a lot of fun doing around town sight seeing, it is amazing how we take the local stuff for granted!
