I have one too...and a RAK

Well, I took the pluge and started an Etsy shop. You can find the link over here ---------------->
Not sure what I was thinking, but check it out and hopefully someone can give a good home to some cards! :)


And now, here is the RAK. I have a copy of the latest Paper Crafts special issue, 225 Cards and Gifts to give away! Just answer this question before 11:59 pm CST on Sunday, for your chance to win!
What is your favorite summertime activity, or your favorite summertime memory?
Good luck and thanks for stopping by!



ETA: My FeedBurner email feed has CRASHED! I could not be more stressed out because I cannot find anyone that can help!!! If you are a subscriber, and you got your feed this morning, can you please let me know? Or let me know if you have been getting your feeds at all. Just tell me in a comment. BUT, it gets even better, my computer is also dying. I am getting about 5 minutes of computer time before it freezes and I restart! ACK! I love and hate technology!! Better run before I cannot post this!!

My favorite memory is our family barbecues. Lots of grilling and eating, and tons of watermelon, with seed spitting contests :)

Anya said...

I just love to spend time outside tending the garden or reading a good book!

My favorite summertime memory is sitting on my parents old farmhouse porch with my stepsister when she came to visit and having a "kids only" picnic. :) Those were the times.

My favorite summertime memory is spending time every summer at my grandparent's cabin in Northern Minnesota when I was growing up. Loved to pick strawberries and raspberries in my grandmother's garden ... and fishing with my grandpa!

I love walking on the beach. My favorite memories of the summer are from when I used to babysit my cousins at a lake in NH.

Pegg S said...

Oh looks like a great issue! My favorite summertime activity is going to the beach, sitting under an umbrella, listening to the waves, smelling the salty air and playing travel scrabble. That, to me, is summer! :)

My favourite part about summer is the feeling of sand between my toes, while drinking an orange julius.
Congrats on your etsy shop

Hey Kim,

I subscribe to your feed, but not through feedburner. I got it fine this morning.

My favorite summer memory is watching the Fourth of July Concert in Public Square, downtown Cleveland. It was an annual tradition for the five years we lived there. Such fun!

Lindsay said...

One of my favorite summertime memories is going to the lake every year. We spend lots of time at our grandparent's lake house fishing, tubing and water sports. We cook out and have marshmallow roasts. It is a great time together as a family.

Pamela said...

One of my favorite summer time activities is sitting out on the porch late at night and looking at the stars.

I am one of those that is tech challenged...so I don't know much about feedburner. I subscribe through google reader and I got your post.

I hope your computer problems are solved and are a thing of the past. Have a wonderful day.

My favorite memory is catching lightning bugs & putting them in a jar. Between my sister, brother, & the neighbor boys (there were 4 of 'em), we must've caught tons of those little buggers. Thanks for asking!

Kelly Jo said...

Oh, I'd be sick if my computer was dying. Good luck with that!

Deanna said...

Oooh I could like this mag! My favorite memmory is water gun fights in the back yard!

Martha said...

My favorite memories are the summers we spent at the cottage in Southern Michigan. It's still my favorite place on Earth. I loved swimming in the lake and reading books in the hammock, as well as the family time and games we shared there.

Carolina said...

Oh no...sorry to hear about your feedburner crashing, wish I could help, but will keep my fingers crossed for you!

My favorite summer activity is taking weekend trips with hubby...we have such fun together and it's a nice way to do something different and get away from it all.

Walking on the beach, however, it has been years since I've been to the beach! I also enjoy going to summer camp and baking for the kids!

I feed several familes of raccoons right outside my backdoor. In another month, I will add new crop of babies to feeding and watching. That's my favorite summer activity.

I'll click on over to find your "store". Good luck with your oops!

Sharon said...

Sorry can't help you with the feed think.
My favorite activity is fishing I was raised up on a creek bank as we call it. We used to go some place every weekend and take my grandma that was in a wheelchair for losing a leg, she just loved fishing, I can see her now gray hair flying and she would sit for hours and wait for a fish to pass by. But now I can't get in the heat I have Lymphemeda from having breast cancer and must stay out so my summer heat days are limited to what I get to do.

Ginny said...

Yep..I getting your information....love your work

Amy said...

My favorite summer memories include spending three weeks of each summer on my grandparents' farm. They lived fourteen hours away from us, so we didn't get to visit often. But each summer when I was young, I'd get to go spend three weeks with them. It was such a different way of life for a city girl, and I loved it!

Daphne said...

Kim,
My favorite activity for the summer is swimming at the OU Pool. I love to go there with they boys. While they have lessons, I swim laps and then afterward we play around. I love the feeling of the sun and water and afterwards the coolness of a snowcone on the way home. That is summer to me!

Daphne said...

Kim,
I'm getting your feeds and have been since I signed up last week. It comes about a day later than you post, but it always comes.

My question on your feed problems is...could it be related to your computer dying? I don't know much (anything) about these things, but sometimes something seemingly unrelated can affect another system. We had that happen when our cable modem wasn't working, it made my whole computer sluggish. Once that was fixed (and we knew it was old and a problem), other things improved greatly as well.

Joann said...

I got my feed this morning.

My favorite summer activity is watching my kids have a blast boating, tubing & wake boarding.

Carol A. said...

I got my feed this morning Kim and wanted to wish you the very best with your Etsy store, even though I am sure you won't need it.

I think one of my fondest memories of summer was my mom and dad making homeade ice cream. It was always so fun to get your turn at turning the crank handle. No ice cream ever tasted better!

Patti said...

My favorite summertime activity is just sitting in the backyard with friends and fa,ily in the waning light late in the evening watching kids chase lightening bugs.

And my feeds have been delievered as normal the past few days. I couldn't tell you were having a problem.

Regina Cornelius said...

Hi Kim! My favorite summertime activity is planting! And cook outs! And being outside when it's not freezing! ;)

My fav activity for summer when I was a kid was sitting on my Grandmother's porch and working puzzles with her! Especially when it rained!! Now, I like to have a cold cocktail and just sit and watch my bulldogs play in their kiddie pool! Great way to spend time! Thanks for the blog candy.

ALLY said...

Aloha Jan said...

My girlfriend's Mom took us to the Oregon beach for a weekend of fun. The weather was soooooooo beautiful and we had so much fun! My friend's Mom had us laughing so hard at times---she knew how to be just as silly as two pre-teen girls!

Amanda said...

I love taking my boys to the swimming pool; my mom luckily has one next door, so we don't have to go far! It is our favorite summertime activity.

Sandra said...

I got this from feedburner at 8:00 am Saturday morning - that seems to be how feedburner is working for me, I get things the day after.

My favorite summertime activity is watching baseball - well - I have a lot of favorite activities, but in the summer I do enjoy a baseball game!
Thanks for the fun!
Sandra

When I was a kid I use to catch tiny fish from under rocks and hidden on shells! Me and my best friend enjoyed an afternoon almost every week for the summer! I will always remember!

My favorite summer activity is going on vacation. It doesn't matter where we go, just that we go and do something new and get away from home makes it the highlight every year.
