Blogging for Brownie Points

I'm finally catching my breath and working my way through piles of laundry. Suitcases are empty and ready for their return to storage, clothes are washed and folded (not yet placed in drawers), and I'm cruising my favorite blogs. Doughboy is freezing his tushie off in Pittsburgh and my life is returning to a normal routine.

The winter CHA Convention and Trade Show takes place next week. For those familiar with the Craft & Hobby Association, this event marks the semi-annual release of new products and latest industry trends. One of my favorite products is AccuCut. I already own several dies and enjoy sharing them with my Scrap Club friends. AccuCut is having a sneak peek on their blog and hosting a give-away of one of their new stationary dies.

I gain brownie points if I post about the give-away and link back to the AccuCut blog. It's no problem posting about this product - I would gladly do it with or without a give-away. But if it gets me closer to winning this fabulous die, I'll do whatever it takes. So here I am - pimping for brownie points :)

The preceding has been a public service announcement from a deranged AccuCut fan.



P.S. Scrap Club Divas - please post on your blog to win this die. It would be a great new addition to our existing library.

Hi, Debra. I visited the site and it's pretty cool.

I just remembered that I never thanked you for the gorgeous Christmas card you sent me. I was so surprised at how beautiful it was! So, thank you.

Will post for a chance to win.

You're welcome, Kate. I'm glad you liked the card. I try to make our Christmas cards every year. But for all my good intentions, time usually gets away from me. I started this year's cards back last summer. It took an entire day just to machine stitch the cardstock and another day to place the die cuts. Gluing each individual sequin drove me crazy but it didn't look as nice without it. I'm already looking for the the perfect card idea for Christmas 2009. Nuthin' says lovin' like homemade :)

For those of you wondering what " I already own several dies " means quantitively,let me just say that the real estate needed to simply store her collection is bigger than the 'great room' in my Pittsburgh apartment. I've never been to any scrapbook store that has a larger collection in stock or, given the discontinued status of many, a listing of those currently available for sale. Accucut would do well to do a cover story here..........we're talking literally hundreds here.

I love it when Doughboy weighs in! In this case, we can't argue with him. The supplies that you have accumulated, out of the goodness of your heart, for your friends is spectacular! Accucut should feature your scrap room in their marketing materials...and the Divas, of course!

Men are so funny! Anyway, I have already visited the Accucut site and obliged with the link back to the blog.
Can't wait to be the guest teacher! Have you had any luck locating the "goods"?

Maintenance Guy unjams the dies from the die press. I got skills !

Where would we be without Doughboy. I can still remember the day he unjammed the AccuCut machine. We love him. Debra's collection of dies is by far the best I've ever seen. Maybe only second to AccuCut. :-)
