All in the Family GIVEAWAY...


Hi crafty friends! So, I opened the mail today and found the latest issue of Paper Crafts magazine tucked inside the mailbox and I was really excited. I don't have anything published in this issue, but it doesn't mean that I'm not represented...by my husband! Alas, he didn't submit a card, but the sweet P. Kelly Smith published one of his "comment to win" comments in the Online Corner on pg. 18 under the headline: "Happy Wife = Happy Life" -- it's pretty hilarious and I'm giggling that both of us can now say we've been "published" in the same magazine!
The magazine was kind enough to send my husband his very own copy, so we have two in the house. As much as I want to hang on to every copy of my fave mag, I thought I'd share the love by giving one away to celebrate my reaching 250 Followers and over 50 "Like"ers on The Stampin' Bean on Facebook! If you'd like to win this issue (May/June 2011), just leave a comment below telling me who in your life makes you happy by midnight EST on Sunday, April 10 and my husband will draw one lucky winner! (I just may include a little something extra, so feel free to tell your friends!)

Hi Regina, ah, what a sweet hubby. Love his comment. My husband makes me happy. He lets me sit for hours reading stamping blogs, buy Copic markers, make cards and scrapbook. He is very supportive of my hobby and loves that I always have a card ready for when someone needs one. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of the Papercrafts magazine. joanvanc@gmail.com

LeAnne said...

Regina, I was CRACKING up when I read that article! You're both famous! I don't need the copy so you can leave me out of the running, but my dear granddaughter brings a smile to my face and makes me happy every single day! My DH does too, especially when he helps around the house! :D

P. Kelly Smith said...

Regina, I loved printing your husband's comment in our May/June issue! We don't receive many comments from men, so when your husband's e-mail came across my inbox, I just knew I had to share it with our readers. Tell your husband he's welcome to leave a comment anytime...he might just get "published" again!

Kelly Smith,
Paper Crafts magazine

Tina Gilliland said...

Congrats!!! I flipped through my magazine today and THAT was the first thing I saw!!! I read it to my hubby and he agreed with your DH's statement... "Happy wife = happy life." LOL Congrats again!

Mrs Ham said...

I glad to here that your husband's comment was published. I'm so excited for you.

Don't enter me into the drawing, I subscribe to Paper Crafts. I just wanted to say congradulations to you and your hubby.

Regina

You have a sweet hubby. My children make my life happy.

Michelle said...

my fiance and daughter bring me joy everyday....

Shale Photography said...

Too cute! My husband is my sunshine - he makes every day better and the longer I know him, the more I love him (and actually, genuinely LIKE him, too!) Thanks for the chance to win!

michelled said...

My hubby, children and.....my dog all make me happy!

Cyndi said...

That is too cute! What a wonderful hubby. I have to say he thinks along the same line as mine, as he has always told the kids as they were growing up, "if Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!" In his travels out on the road he even found a t-shirt with that on it and brought it home to me. Everyone in the house knew that when I wore that shirt, I was not happy about something, and they would all work hard to make my day go better. LOL

Nancy and Monica said...

My husband and 15 year old son make my life happy. They both do so many things that show how much they love and appreciate me. One of those things would be allowing me to spend time uninterrupted in my craft room.

SusanHellinger said...

My family and friends make me happy -- I am very blessed and grateful for them.

MrsLeftyFixIt said...

Love it!! I would die if my hubby got published like that, but then again, he would do it if he had the chance. He is the one that makes me so happy. He tells me every morning that I am the very reason his heart beats. He is the reason that I breathe my next breath. He always turns my frown upside down into a smile.....every day.

Julie Anne said...

My children make me happy when they tell me they love me!! So sweet... hope they still say it when they are teenagers!

kimmy said...

Aww your husband is so sweet! I love to hear cute stories like that. My dear boyfriend makes me happy with random surprises of cupcakes or other sweet treats!

scrape n scrap said...

Hi Regina,
Oh! how sweet is your hubby... I love his comment..
My hubby is supportive to my hobby. He allows us (me and my daughter) attend every club day. How I love to have Paper Crafts..
God bless you and your family!

Becky said...

My grandaughter Sarah makes me happy. She has CP & Autisum and she is always happy with a smile on her face. We call her our sunshine!!

Dream of Scrappin' said...

How sweet of your husband to send in a comment about you! Such fun that you've both been "published".

Thank you for this chance!

My husband and son make me Happy, my husband never says no when I want to buy new stamps and all, I love making all my cards!

Mary B. said...

My family makes me happy! My husband, 3 daughters, 2 son-in-laws, 5 grandbabies, 5 sisters, 1 brother, 4 nieces/nephews, 1 sister-in-law, 3 boyfriends (that belong to my sisters), my Mom and my Dad! That's a whole lot of happiness rolled up in to one big fat Italian family!

jengd said...

Too funny! I love that you've both been published in PC, regardless of how much crafting is done by either. :) My husband and son are the ones that tend to make me the happiest... when they're not making me insane. ;)

GI_musician said...

Wow that's great! My husband and I do our own thing; he does his engineering things while I do my crafting. One kid at my work makes me feel happy.

Ohana in Bend said...

Jesus is my joy, everyday! i like what your hubby did, that is wonderfully sweet!

rstuck2003 said...

That is hilarious! My 7 month old granddaughter makes me happy! She is the sunshine on a cloudy day! My children and fiancée also make me happy!

Mary said...

Funny! Congrats on your "likers" and followers. Right now, the person that makes me happy is my new granddaughter! She's a little over a week old and was born weighing just 1 lb. 1 oz.! I am so in love with her!

Barb's Boys said...

That is sooo cute (and so true!) how awesome that he felt the urge to leave a comment! My baby boy just turned 20 today and he makes me very happy...for Christmas he took the time to go shopping for some Spellbinders Nestabilities...he did well! Thanks for the chance to win this issue! barbsboys123.blogspot.com

Jean said...

Congrats on you hubby being published! Too funny.

jlytranch said...

My husband makes me happiest of all.

Amery said...

Ha Ha. Your hubby is absolutely right though :) My hubby and daughter make me happy! Thanks for thinking of others and giving us an opportunity to win.

Liz said...

You must have an incredible husband ! My children are 23 and 25, and they both live 1500 miles away. Nothing warms my heart more than when they still call me momma or mommy at their age.

Patty said...

Awwww - your hubby is a smart smart man!!! My hubby and sweet little girl make me the happiest ever. Thanks for the chance to win.

April said...

God fills me with His joy! :)

Auntie Em said...

That's so cute! A husband that realizes if you can't win, join them! You have to love someone who enables an addiction, especially paper crafting! Mine does, even when he doesn't realize it!!! :D

Its Ace said...

Like most of these ladies, it would have to be my husband of 34 years. He has been my rock in a hard place though out our life together and makes every day just as interesting as the first day together. He understands my card making obsession and says that
"I am in my Happy Place" when I am making cards. Got to love that man....Oh yeah I Do! Thanks Hun.

happygifting said...

Hubbby, of course! He encouraged me to attend Michael's crop night even though I offered to stay home with the kids. I've been waiting for months to go, lol well ever since they started last year.

Linda Callahan said...

That is too cute that they published his comment! My husband tells everyone that my cards are just like Hallmark's but without the decimal point - then goes on to explain that instead of 3.50 each "she uses $350 worth of equipment to make one!" About that Harley he has in the garage........

Lindsey said...

What a sweet story! For me, it's my husb. :)

Krista said...

Who makes me happy? My family. My hubby is so willing to do things for me. My kids' antics make me laugh.

DebbieG said...

My Daughters, beautiful Grandkids and my Boston Terrier, Bella make me happy. My cup runneth over.

marilynwillauer said...

Of course it's my hubby that makes me the happiest, makes me feel special, and most of all NEVER complains about my paper crafting or other hobbies I choose to do rather than housework!!! My boys come in a very close second place!!!

Susan said...

I love this mag, but alas I am unable to afford to buy it. I rely on my great stamping buddy to share her copy. They always have great ideas and I love the easy instructions.
BTW, your blog is AWESOME! You've done some really cute stuff. I have put it in my favorites and will visit often.

Jessica said...

My sweetie got me a Cricut Expression for my birthday a couple of years ago. He's been very suportive of my 'need' for cartridges. He read your hubbys comment and said it was true, a happy wife = a happy life. Please don't add me to the list for the copy of the mag, I have my own. So if my name is draw, please draw again.
Ijust wanted to share. Hugs
Jessica

I have a subscription to Paper Crafts but I seem to have trouble lately getting it delivered in the mail. I joke that my mail lady is a papercrafter. Hopefully I will get mine soon and I can let you know and someone else can win it! Of course I'd keep the extra goody! So I guess getting my Paper Craft magazine makes me happy :)

~Tammy~ said...

Now, if more hubbys got that simple, but important comment. Very sweet of him! My son and hubby make me happy.

Kimberly S. said...

Who makes me happy?? My husband, my 2 little boys, and all of my kitties make me so happy I never want to leave my house!! LOL! OK...that's not true, but they all do make me very happy!!! I would LOVE to win a copy of this magazine! As a stay-at-home Mom, we do not have any "extra" money after everyone else has used it (hubby to eat out for lunch a couple of times a week because he hates taking sandwiches every day, and both kids are in soccer, school pictures, etc), so I have not been able to subscribe to this magazine yet....even though I want to get it more than you can imagine!! I am trying to sell the cards & crafts I make to earn a little extra money for me...but it's slow going. It costs to advertize, so I'm stuck. Anyway...thanks for the chance to win this!!!

Lisa Condreay said...

Congratulations for your hubbys publication. That was a very sweet thing he did. It is something my hubby would do for me. He and my son are my greatest joy. Very blessed to have them in my life.

Denise Willerton said...

That is fabulous ~ congrats to your hubby ~ thanks for the opportunity to win ~ our three children, three grandsons and one on the way??? as well as my husband make me extremely happy! TFS your gifts with us & have a wonderful day :-)

Lindsay said...

Oh my goodness I laughed out loud when I read your husbands quote! So so funny! I read it to my husband and he laughed too!

Beth said...

Cute idea! Husbands are the BEST!! I moved so far away from my 5 sisters and 2 brothers (no children of our own) ~ so guess who 'gets' to be my family 24/7 : ) Lucky Lucky Me! I know of no one else who would put up with this scrapbooking addiction that permeates every corner of our home . . . *sigh* He's the greatest!

Karinn said...

Awww, I love that your husband was so sweet to do that (have him call my DH to hive him some tips, would ya?). I love my husband bunches, but when it comes to crafting, my little ones make me happy and provide my ideas for cards and most of my scrapbook pages. They love to come in and give me advice, color schemes and "help" me make cards. I love those 3 squirts sooooo much, how can I resist their charms - er- I mean help?

Gailanne said...

My hubby is very supportive of my stamping addiction (!) and very patient when I'm away at classes during the weekend when he's home from work. He definitely makes me very happy!

Basement Stamper said...

my kids make me very happy-I love watching them grow and they say the funniest things when I need them the most.

Naomi said...

My ultimate happiness is not on any one person, but my husband definitely tops the list. My kids are a close 2nd, followed by my close circle of friends (A.K.A. Scrapping buddies). My life wouldn't be complete without any one of them.
