I love thickers...


...but I love you more.
I'm too embarrassed to show my personal stash (shameful) BUT, this stash could be your's.
Since I'm selfish (the stash that shall go unseen) there is of course something in it for me:
To win one of the three chipboard thicker accentss I'm giving away individually, just leave a comment here. Call it good as day. I've already got two specific numbers that I'll be giving them to (as in the number X poster and the number Y poster) so good luck. No randomness, just a bit of luck. I'll pull those winners before end of Friday (Remember, I'm west coast so my "end" is probably later than your's).
But for the motherlode - which includes the above and then some, what's in it for me.
I'm a blog lurker. Like no one's business. But I love bloglines (and bloggers' blog reader and just about any RSS reader really) because I don't have to stalk ya'll to know when you update.
To get into the big drawing for the huge stash, sign up to read my blog in a blog reader. If you already are married to one (I love Bloglines myself) and you just add my blog to the blogs listed in your reader, cool. If you don't have a blog reader, check out bloglines because it is super easy.
Once ya sign me up, come back and leave a comment telling me which reader you subscribe to my blog from. Yeah, even if you unsub right after the drawing, I won't hate on ya (smile).
You have until 9 pm Pacific on Sunday (this Sunday) night to get that done. I'll draw a winner and post (both on here and via postal mail). Which means that you pretty please with a cherry on top should do the blog reader subscription thing because it is really sad when I pick a winner who didn't leave their email addy (understandable) but who never comes back to see that, alas, they had won.
All said, have fun. My gain (finally!) is your win (hopefully!).
Ready. Set. Go.
***thickers up for grabs: Prancer - chipboard; Jewelry Box - chipboard; Vera - foam; Black Tie - velvet; Dolce - fabric covered chipboard; Shoebox - chipboard and glittered chipboard; Darling - chipboard; Pajamas - felt (in black and brown)***
And of COURSE bloglines is temporarily down...And it is UP again. Have at it!

I'll be first! It is very sweet and generous of you to do this and glad your persistence paid off in the great BL Thickers search of 2009!

Maybe afterwards you can post a picture of your stash - I would love to see a 'shameful' stash!!!

Thanks for the chance to win.

Melissa said...

I am drooling over the thickers... I like you have been waiting for them the hit the West Coast. Up here in OR they still haven't arrived, as of yesterday that is. Thank you for mentioning Bloglines, I never knew something like that existed. I have blogs that I like to visit but I don't stay current due to lack of time. But maybe with bloglines I can stay connected. The bloglines site is down right now, but I'll check it out in the morning and sign up. I'll get back to you when I do. Thanks again, Mel

Sharon said...

Well That Girl,
I want to be bold beautiful and brainy also, but you've got dibs on that! I just discovered your blog after looking at Jennifer McGuire's and then to 2 peas message board. I love your life blog - that is so sad that the young man, Damon, who has such a bright future has to contend with guns and violence in his neighborhood. I used to live in Longview, Washington, back in the mid 1980s.

I'd love to be considered to win that stash...I, too, am a Thicker-a-holic.

I'll sign up through Google Reader/my Blogger Dashboard.

OHIOGIRLof6 said...

I saw your generous give-away on 2peas and am now following your blog. Thanks for the chance to win, I checked out my BL the other day and they didn't have the awesome Thickers treasures that others are finding!

Suz said...

Wow great prize who doesn't love Thickers. My BL only had the pastel pink & white vinyl.

I am follwing in google reader

Sarah said...

I've just started *thinking* about Thickers... don't have any as of yet but know there's so much hype over them that I'd love to give them a try.

*Monica* said...

Cool! I am a Thickers addict too =) I just can't get enough of them! I have no idea how to use a blog reader & I don't have time to sign up for one (leaving for a 2-week vacation in 1 hour!). But thanks for the chance to win!

cindy said...

Hi there fellow Washingtonian! I stumbled upon your bolg on two peas, because I love thickers too!! I havent found any yet in our BL in the Olympia area- still searching. Thanks for the chance to win some. I signed up for the bloglines readrer. Cant wait to see how it can work for me.

Sarah said...

Figured out how to subscribe and did so through googlereader. :)

atlcarly said...

Hi there. I'm new to your blog, but a Thickers giveaway is an awesome way to get acquainted. I just subscribed to your blog from my Google reader. :) I haven't been sucked into the blog world yet, so no links to share.

Heather Bares said...

I would love to win some Thickers!!! a girl can never have too many, lol

Stephanie said...

You're so generous to have a blog giveaway! And what a great prize. Who doesn't love Thickers??

Glenda T. said...

I too would love to see your shame!! Those turquoise thickers have me salivating at the mouth (I can't buy them here!) Thanks for the chance to win!!

Jen said...

Oh, I want to be in for the Thickers. My BL only had some CB, not nearly as many as I have seen some girls pick up. You can never have too many thickers, right???

Denise said...

I'm an RSS fan myself...and I'm always looking for SISters to "stalk," LOL! Thanks again for the giveaway :)

amandaV. said...

wow, how generous of you! Thanks for the chance, and what a great source of inspiration your blog is, I will be following for sure!!

Renee said...

Welcome to the world of Thickers addiction. Are you sure you won't show us a peak of your stash. Really, you have lots of company in the stash department ...

Renee D.

Liz said...

Yummmm. Thickers. How nice of you to share!! I subbed in Google Reader. Gotta love Reader! :)

skurin said...

Totally following you through Blogger now. You really scored big time at Big Lots. I went the other day and got a couple of packages of Thickers. BUT I edited myself. :-) Wanted to buy them all, but didn't. You are super super generous to be giving away such a prize!!! :-)

Paula said...

How sweet! Love your blog and love your comment about colors - can I steal it?

Paula said...

Love your blog - and love your comment about colors - can I borrow it? Sweet deal on the thickers too - thanks!!!

Penny said...

yum! I should've come here first today. I just spent $40 on some new thickers this morning. But I could still use more!

I wish had a clue how to do the blogline thing... I need refresher courses I think? lol

Honey...G said...

Those Thickers look so good. Thanks for the chance of winning.

Mel said...

I use google reader..though sometimes it's not "reliable". Usually, I keep a list of bookmarks of all my fav blogs, and just check them when I can, which is often!

Wanda said...

Dang,that's a lot of thickers, and you have MORE? This giveaway stash is more than my personal stash.

Thanks for the chance to win!

pebblesjns said...

Great blog and I agree, blog readers make my life so much easier. I added you to my Google Reader.

Thanks so much for the chance to win those Thickers! Very generous of you. I wanted to hit up the Big Lots here, but unfortunately being on bedrest for the remainder of my pregnancy means I am not able to go shopping!

Adrienne said...

OKay, this is incredible, my mouth dropped at the site of those thickers... You're right... I LOVE THEM... And I would do a crazy thing for them too... maybe attempt to stand on my head and take a picture... That is pretty crazy to me. LOL

OKay bloglines is working now, this is going to be super cool. MMMM I am excited... But that happens easily!

Adding you on there NOW!

How sweet of you to rehome your Thickers! I don't have a shameful stash of Thickers, but I have plenty of other shameful stashes like cardstock, patterned paper, buttons, etc.

Denise Z. said...

Nice to meet you! I'm a No. CA Pea, too. I found a few Thickers at our Big Lots today, but none of those. Would love to win :)

Sadly, I don't have a blog :(

Just Us said...

Cynthia B. said...

All right...I'm in! I'm following your blog using Google Reader. Thanks for this generous offer! I love alphas in general, but w/ their choice of colors and styles, Thickers really are the best! There's only one Big Lots by me, and it has zero in the scrapping dept. :(
I'm looking around at your other blog posts too - good thing I've got you in my reader now - some FUN pages! :D

Chic With A Badass Truck said...

Ms_Pea said...

Sweet! I would LOVE me some Thickers but the closest Big Lots to me closed about 2 years ago :-(

Thanks for the chance to win!

Ms_Pea said...

OK, I just added you on my Google Reader account. Can you believe I just "discovered" Reader only about 3 weeks ago? Until then, I was checking each of my favorite blogs (30+) by individually opening them from my favorites folder to see if they had any new posts!! Now that I'm signed up for your blog, I look forward to reading through your archives (and seeing my name as the winner for the Thickers!) :-)

Kim said...

How very kind of you!

Kim said...

How very kind of you!

michelle said...

Oh my gosh you are such a sweetie for sharing all the great things that there are in the world!!!!!!! Especially since you have driven to the end of the world and back to find these GREAT little treasures. I have a little man that I am making a book for (my own son) and I will only use Thickers in his book and it is fun to have some that we do not have in this area!

Thank you for the WONDERFUL chance to win and trust me you are going to go into my favorites to check in on often!!!;)
