Can I Ask a HUGE Favor? I Have Winners to Announce & More… 19

Hey Crafty friends,

I have some major winners to announce today – but before I do that….

I do not normally do this kind of thing from my blog, I will post it up in social media – but I generally don’t ask for this (generally!) BUT – my heart is IN this – and it’s just SO close and I know you all would do it for ME, so I’m asking – Would you do this for Melanie?

She is in a Cricut I Made It Contest and winning would be HUGE things – for her – and fun things for us! Would you please take a moment to click this link and then just click VOTE for Melanie the next few days – it’s totally safe and no other information is required from you – crafty and non-crafty friends can vote – just click this link and share it if you would?!?!

THANK YOU and Melanie will be forever grateful <3

Here’s what Deb said:

I struggle with the “creative process”…getting back into the groove of creating when I’ve been unable to create due to time constraints. Not sure their is much to be done about that. How about different card cuts and “storing” pictures on a scrapbook page in pockets? Love your enthusiasm and “let’s see how it goes” attitude!

    There are so many gadgets out there, but the thing I would Iike the most is CTMH cardstock paper packs. With cardstock the possibilities are endless.

  • Shirley sanders

    A perfect gift for our whole family would be a stress free Christmas and for our granddaughter to be told she is cancer free. It’s hard to create when your mind is wondering everywher, but I must say when I scrapbook or make cards I seem to worry less.

  • Melissa lanoue

    I love crafting with my girls when they have off of school we have so much fun doing it together. Sometimes they just like cutting out there names for there room. sometime we can’t figure out of what to do, we have a hard time layering things on paper that don’t look right and we have to start all over again. if u could give us some ideas i would really appreciate it alot

    thanks melissa

  • Janice

    An awesome gift to give this year would be to have our youngest daughter and her family come to visit us in Florida. Neither of us can afford it but, can you imagine, she doesn’t even have a cricut. So next best thing would be that. Love your blog.

  • Dennise Robinson

    I’ve been voting for Melanie too and I will continue. A perfect gift for me this year would be a huge stash of crafting supplies including but not limited to, adhesives of all kinds, card stock, printable iron on and vinyl, glass blocks, paints, shadow box’s, ribbons, and so much more, so I can do lots of various types of crafting. I just can’t afford everything all at once that I want to work with right now! But all and all the best gift is just time with loved ones that I rarely get to see.

  • Mabel

    Congrats to all the winners. I have been voting for Melanie since I found out about it…hope she wins. As for a gift for me or some of my crafty friends this year it would have to be nice storage. If I can’t see it I don’t use it. I have a lot of labeled boxes! Also maybe a pretty homemade journal to put in everything they have along with pics.

  • Bibi

    Wonderful thing you are doing here Megan. I too, have been voting for Melanie since it started. Really do hope she wins, she is incredibly talented. My Christmas wish would be to have all my family here for Christmas Eve dinner and then have a wonderful evening of enjoying each others company. Also, to complete the photo albums I’m making for gifts. The season is here!!!

  • Melissa

    Congrats to all the winners and best of luck to Melanie!! As a gift, I’d love to get back into my craft studio and make a baby album for my grandbaby, a wedding album for my step-daughter that just married on Friday, and simply enjoy the comfort of my home and craft studio over the holidays. I really need to dust off my cricut, break out my stamps, get out my photos and enjoy my favorite hobby! Any new products would be greatly appreciated and accepted in my home. Thank you for all you do for us – you are a true inspiration.

  • Donna

    Megan thank you for your giving spirit! Congratulations to all the winners!!
    All the things you list are great giveaways and I would be honored to have any of them. However I would love a CTMH shopping spree, or the Cricut Explore so that I can go to the next level in learning and crafting.

  • Melissa Smith

    Congrats to the winners. I would love prayers for my family. This is our first holiday season since my husband of 41 years died. I love your spirituality and giving. I have been using the EFT and so has my daughter.

  • Lm Benson

    I have been a fan of yours for sometime. Thanks for your sharing heart at all times and for being the same at all times. I would a gift of any paper , glue, EXPLORE and all the good paper crafting haul. I watch your demos at night and get up in the morning. Will continue to pray for you and your beautiful family Thanks

  • Cindy Sue

    Congratulations to all the winners. Since it is Election Day — I’m voting for Megan. She is the right candidate for the job. She has so much compassion and understanding and love that she shows us each week. Let’s give Megan our Vote of appreciation and a big Thank You.

  • Brenda Manz

    All of the supplies at CTMH are AWESOME and would be a welcome addition to my stamping corner. I love the cardstock and use adhesives like crazy, so a good supply of these would be helpful. All in all, just enjoy making cards for friends and loved ones (like my little grandchildren) a ‘work of HEART’ and GOOD THERAPY.
