  1. My idea of pampering is having a few hours to do some papercrafting! Nothing is more relaxing! Have fun, Mary!

  2. Pampering? Hmmmm. It,s been so long since I have been and so much has happened in my life but I do remember one hear when my children got me an all day spa treatment to include a whole body massage, facial, manicure, pedicure and healthy salad for lunch. I was so relaxed afterwards I had to take a nap……now pampering includes a day of stamping and creativity doing what I love…..

  3. I love it when I have some time to stay in my pajama’s and read a good book uninterrupted….heaven!

  4. A nice relaxing bubble bath followed by a nap. What more could a girl ask for?

  5. I am a homeschool mom, so I have time while my daughter is independently working to stamp, or bake, or even catch up on a recorded show. But pampering to me is just chatting with a friend over coffee.

  6. Pampering to me is getting a massage. My everyother week pampering is getting my nails done!

  7. Pampered…now that’s a term I haven’t heard in a while! We own a busy hay farm and this time of year is crazy. Don’t tell my husband, but sometimes I pray for rain so I get a chance to lock myself in my craft room for the day. Thanks for this great giveway, hope you’re having a blast!

  8. Maybe a massage, or just relaxing with a good book, either one sounds fantastic!

  9. I love a pedicure! And reading a good book while my feet soak makes it even better!

  10. I too love a pedicure and having pretty toes when I leave.

  11. My favorite way to feel pampered takes a little preparation, but the results are so worth it! After straightening up the house, I make a tray of tea things and set it out for a special guest—me! With some soft music, a scented candle and a stack of favorite magazines (or Stampin’ up idea books!)I sit in a comfy chair with my feet up and allow myself to drift off to sleep. Sheer bliss! (True confession: the clean house is the secret ingredient! Haha!)

  13. I love to pamper myself by going to Scrapbooking retreats and enjoying a weekend of fun and laughs with my friends.

  16. Staying in bed is a luxury with 3 busy kids not one that happens too often. Pure luxury is a weekend away, crafting with a friend where the big decision is what time someone else will make dinner for me!! (LOVE a day off from cooking!!)

  17. Stamping and creating a beautiful card takes me away!!!

  18. My favorite way to feel pampered is a day off work and a new stamp set to play with.

  43. My daughter-in-law and I visit a local salon for manicure, pedicure and massage We relax, chat and just get ‘alone’ time.
    Enjoy your ‘pampering’ with SU and thank you for all of the inspiration you give to us.

  44. I know this is going to sound odd to most woman, but I can’t think of anything more pampering than when I get on my harley and experience complete freedom from everything. It is the best therapy I know….then on rainy days, I make cards…HA!

  45. Pampering to me is when my husband feeds all the animals, we have three alpacas, three dogs and three cats and he lets me make cards or sew with out having to stop and take care of the animals.

  46. Pampering to me is to stay in bed and read a good book with a cup of tea. Have fun at your getaway. I love your creativity. Thanks.

  52. Lifesadance2@sbcglobal.net

  62. Have a GREAT time in SLC! How fun! Pampering is a day alone to stay in my craft room ALL day and then a bubble bath!!!!

  63. Pampering to me – oh, there could be many items on my list. But I think my favorite is having a pedicure with a foot massage. Particularly when I get a pretty color of polish. And I only speak Stampin’Up colors when I choose my color. The lady who does my pedicures gets a real kick out of our color names.

  64. My idea of pampering: hubby having dinner on the table when I get in from work, then cleaning the kitchen while I stamp. He does this all the time now that he is retired and I am still working. It’s great!

  65. I have a hard time allowing others to pamper me — I guess it is the control freak mom in me. But after surgery in August I had to let my family do more for me and, I must say, it was not bad at all. Just being able to ask for my water bottle to be filled and getting it done without a bunch of whining was a pleasure. Of course, it didn’t last long, but it was nice while it did last. Thanks for the chance at winning a little pampering & have a great time in St. George!!!!

  66. Hmm, a nice massage with relaxing music sounds pretty good to me!

  67. My pampering consist of a couple of hours to have manicure and a pedicure in a wonderful message chair. Turn the cellphone off and enjoy.

  68. Have fun and enjoy your pampering Mary. My favorite way to be pampered is to go to my upline’s house (thanks Karen) and have a scrap day! She feeds us and we get to play in her stampin’ room all day!! I love it and I feel so refreshed afterwards!

  69. My pedicures are my favorite pampering! Although, if I could afford it, I’d get massages more often!

  70. When I wake up each morning, I have my coffee in bed with my laptop and Mary Fish….yes, I start each day with your post. Love seeing all of your ideas and your One Minute to Wow videos. My dream is to one have have a craft room as beautiful as your.

    Thanks for all your inspiration.

  71. The ultimate pampering for me is spending an entire morning with a hot cup of coffee (or two!), a dachshund curled up in my lap and the NEW annual Stampin’ Up! catalog in my hands. Heavenly!!! Thanks for the chance to win !!

  72. My favorite way to feel pampered is to go out to dinner and then to come home to watch a good movie while cuddled up with the hubs, nice and warm (can you tell it is a chilly a.m.?).

  73. Laughing and stamping with friends is my perfect way to relax. Enjoy your time at Founder’s Circle! Your posts and blog candy are wonderful!

  74. I like to sit down on my bed and make a bunch of cool crafts. i just think its so fun to make crafts, it keeps me in a relaxing mood.

  75. My fav way to feel pampered is a mani/pedi for sure and I am long overdue for a pedicure at least! Don’t you feel better when your feet have been ‘filed’ down and the polish looks fresh? I do! BUT I would feel ALOT better if I could win your blog candy; it’s heavenly and I don’t own any of it so it seems like it is meant for me; don’t you think so? Thanks for the chance to win it all!

  76. Wow! That is amazing blog candy. My favorite way to be pampered is a good book or magazine with a cappuccino. Thank you for continuing to share of your time, talent and you!

  77. I feel pampered when my husband makes me dinner and serves it to me. It is like having a restaurant in my own home.

  78. When my husband fixes my coffee in the morning

  79. I feel pampered when my husband cooks (he is an amazing cook and puts lots of effort into the meal as an example – 12 hours to make a pasta sauce and it was yummy!!!) and cleans the house for me so that I can spend quality time with our children and maybe sneak in some papercrafting time.

  80. My favorite form of pampering is going to my craft cave in the basement and have fun creating some fun and pretty cards to give away to family and friends! Enjoy your time in Utah. Here’s hoping I win the blog candy. Thank you Mary . . .


  81. Most definitely, my pampering is on a massage table! Just love that! A pedicure comes in a close second……. Thanks for the chance.

  82. A day of stamping with friends!

  83. My favorite way to feel pampered is to get my hair cut and styled…just seat back and let my stylist do it all!

  84. I like to pamper myself by going for a massage and while deeply relaxed thinking up new designs to create with my Stampin Up stamps and DSP.

  85. I absolutely love to have a pedicure! I walk out of my nail salon with rested legs, softened feet and super cute toes. Having my legs rubbed down and massaged with hot stones feels amazing after a week of work which has me on my feet over 8 hours a day. I can’t wait til my next one. I wish I could have one every week!

  86. I would have to say the most relaxing way for me to pamper myself is to get a massage and then relax in the sun after. It always seem that when I do get a massage (which isn’t often enough – maybe 1 every few yrs – YIKES I need to change that – not nearly frequent enough!!) It always seem that I have to run off to doing something else after a nice massage – So I would love to be able to extend the relaxation by then sitting out in the warm sun listening to some relaxing music also.

  87. Ahhhhh, a bubble bath by candle light, a glass of white on the side of the tub, a mask on my face and either some nice music or a good book on my iPad. That is my definition of pampering.

  88. Have a wonderful time. Thanks for sharing your pampering treat with us. :)

  89. To be honest, pampering for me is to be taken out to dinner. I don’t like to cook, and it is a chore to come up with something fairly healthy for my family (2 of us are diabetic), every night. If we go out I don’t have to be concerned about what we will eat and, even better, it give me a longer time to craft!

  90. Tammy VanRosendale

    My idea of a perfect pampering is heading to the
    Campgrounds with peace and quiet. Sweater on
    Nice campfire and my hubby. Perfect.

  91. Shopping for a new Coach handbag hits the spot for me! No, wait – there are so many beautiful choices that it’s hard to decide! So maybe its not the traditional definition of “relaxing” but it sure is FUN! Thanks for the contest!

  92. A massage day or a day of stamping & scrapbooking with friends!!!

  93. Ahhhhh…pampering. My favorite way to be pampered would be to have a full body, hour long massage. A close second would be curled up with a good book, particularly if there is a blizzard going on and I have no place I have to go. Thanks for a chance to win the Blog Candy.

  94. A day of pampering for me would be a day at the spa, never been but I think it would be fantabulous!! Enjoy your stampin retreat!

  95. Oh, that second cup of coffee and a good book. I am pampered with a wonderful craft room and a supportive husband! Thanks for all your inspiration, Mary. Enjoy some stamping and pampering in St. George.

  96. My favorite is a girls night out with Mani/Pedis, dinner & shopping… Oh yeah, & no babies!

  97. I love going with my stamping gals to get pedicures! It is just more of a treat when we can all go together. Our stamping group has been together for almost 10 years!

  102. My idea of pampering would be a trip to the spa for a mani & pedi. Thanks for the chance to win. Enjoy your trip.

  103. Have a wonderful time!! I’m sure you’ll be back to inspire us all and get our creative juices goin’! Pampering for me is a full body massage :) Thanks for the chance!

  104. We own a 24/7 business so just to have an uninterrupted long nap would be heaven to me!! (and if someone was giving me a massage as I napped wouldn’t be bad either!!) LOL

  105. A day of pampering is to be home alone to do whatever I want!

  106. My favorite way of pampering myself is playing with my grandchildren and basking in their laughter!!

  107. Oh definitely a day in my “spa” space (my craftroom) papercrafting ALL day with no “I’m hungry” interruptions!! Hope you have a WONDERFUL time, Mary!!

  108. Mary, I hope you have a wonderful time being pampered in Utah. Thanks for the opportunity to win your fabulous prizes. I’m fortunate to be pampered every other week by having my nails done. My nail tech and I have become very good friends, and we each have a glass of wine while she does my nails. Then I order “to go” from a local restaurant. Wonderful!

  109. Pampering would be a nice long massage, chai tea by the fireplace.

  110. I love soaking my feet in this “miracle mixture”…1/2 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/2 cup brown Listerine, and 2 cups boiling water. It works like a charm…bubbles off all the dead skin and calluses. A little towel rub and coconut oil, and I’m feeling really pampered. Now, if I could just get my husband to prepare everything and handle the toweling and oiling, that would be kicking it up a notch! : )

  111. My favorite way to feel pampered is to have a bubble bath in our large jetted bathtub. Hot water and bubbles are the way to go relax.

  112. Pampering is a day off in my craft room. Hubby gives me that once in a while. No kids, no grandkids and he brings me lunch and it’s so quiet!!! Love those days!

  113. Pampering to me is dinner out or a flower or two from my husband or one of my sons. Makes me smile!

  114. i am easy- a box of homemade chocolate truffles works!

  122. If I could get in an hour or two, I would peruse the current catalogs page by page and take in each and every picture and word while relaxing in a hot bath :)

  124. Pampering–morning coffee out on my pretty patio.
    Enjoy your trip, Mary!

He built me a beautiful craft room and I now have time to get the massage, mani/pedi that I want when I want them. My life is filled with love and pampering every day. I do still like a good cup of tea and a good book though when I need to take care of myself.

  132. Pampering to me is having the whole house to myself for an entire week-end. Then, I do what I want, when I want, and if I want!

  133. I feel pampered when my husband fixes me green tea after dinner and then does the dishes.

  134. Pampering for me is to sit back in recliner and someone bring me a nice hot cup of coffee

  135. Getting a full service pedicure with paraffin wax and foot/leg message:)

  136. I feel pampered when DH waits on ME (instead of the normal other way around)!! LOL But after almost 34 years of marriage, I’d still marry him all over again!

  137. Just having time to do nothing but stampin’, especially when my stampin’ friends get together, is my idea of pampering. And, a pedicure ain’t too bad either! :)

  145. Pampering for me is getting a mani/pedi. It doesn’t happen that often so it’s always a treat when I can get them done!

  146. A day at the spa would be my best idea for pampering. Mani/pedi, massage, facile, hair and makeup. What a day.

  147. Pampering to me is when my husband goes out of town (for a short while) and my adult daughter stays with friends over the weekend. I can do what I want – stamp, read, Pinterest, definitely stay in PJ’s, no make up & no hair do. Very relaxing! Thanks for the chance to win!

  148. My thoughts of pampering is a quiet evening, a comfortable chair and watching a beautiful sunset.

  152. My ideal pampering is to have a whole day of paper crafting without having to worrying about anything I may be neglecting, i.e., hubby fixes dinner, etc. Enjoy your time in St George.

  153. Juliesprincess@yahoo.com

    I am a homeschool mom of three. My weekdays are very hectic. I start school at 8 am and end around 3 so I can give each child their due teacher time with me. Then comes making supper and laundry. But when the weekend comes, my husband rewards me by rubbing my feet while we watch tv. It is all worth it.

    I also adore my baths at the end of our school days. Calgon take me away!

  154. I pamper myself by taking a nice warm bath, candles lit, while listening to music. I’d love a massage, those are wonderful, had a hot stone massage once before and it was heavenly. I’ll settle for a back rub from the hubby though 😉

  155. None of these suggested pampering s are as pleasing as uninterrupted time in my craft room. I would not refuse any of them though! :)

  156. My pampered pleasure is a foot soak and foot massage followed by a pedicure with a new pretty color painted on toe nails to brighten up my world.

  157. Having a surprise outing planned for me is the ultimate pampering, whether it’s appetizers after work with my husband, or a pedicure scheduled by my daughter. That’s just the best!

  158. The best pampering for me would be a weekend to my myself in my craft room. With daily life I only get a hour here and there.Thanks Mary!

  159. Relaxing outside on a comfy bench, sun shining, blue skies and songs of birds on a wonderful fall day.

  160. Pampering for me is just letting me go to my craft room in my pajamas and staying there all day. No dishes, cooking, cleaning or anything but making cards. Have fun on your getaway.

  161. I love it when my husband fixes dinner!!!

  162. A good pedicure with friends!

  163. My idea of being pampered is having a cup of coffee, sitting quietly and doing something that doesn’t require working around the house.

    This is a very nice thing you are doing by offering this Blog Candy Give away.

  164. I look forward to your daily post. When I wake up in the morning, I get my coffee, watch the news and open my computer to see you post. Thank you for your all the effort it takes to share every day.

  165. One of my favorite ways to feel pampered is a day at the beach with my husband. Even though we live in a resort area and don’t always take the time to really enjoy it. So packing a lunch, putting on some good music and sitting back relaxing, talking and idling the day away is a real treat.

  166. I feel pampered when the guys in my house do all the housework for the day. My husband and 2 sons have done this for me twice – even bathrooms!! They cook, they clean – it is just shear pleasure for me to have a break.

  167. Hi Mary…..a heavenly way of being pampered is a spa massage or pedicure which includes a foot and leg massage. Either one is soooooo relaxing :)

    for something real pretty.

  173. Pampering– relaxing on a nice summer day on the deck, with a cold beverage in one hand and a good book in the other, and no one to interrupt. Smelling the sweet smell of the flowers blooming and listening to the rustle of the leaves in the trees from the slight breeze that is flowing thru the trees.

  174. Pampering for me is getting my nails done, fingers & toes!! I also love a good massage. Have fun on your trip!!

  175. I would say a massage and a glass of white wine to follow. Thx Mary. XO

  176. Nothing says pampering and relaxation than a few hours of scrappin’ and stampin’! Have a great day!

  177. My day of pampering would be a long hot shower first thing, a light but yummy breakfast prepared for me, the whole day to create at my craft table with lunch prepared and served by anyone but me. What a day!!

  178. Pampering myself involves some stampin with no interruptions … Tall glass of tea and a clean workspace to start my projects ( there just something about everything being put away before you start again on a project).

  179. My ideal pampering day would be a day off work and just hanging out and doing crafts all day!! :)

  180. Pampering for me is a long relaxing bubble bath! Thanks for all your inspiration and for a chance to win!!


  181. My ideal pampering is our semi-annual scrap camp! We get to stay in cute cabins and have all of our delicious meals prepared for us while we stamp or scrapbook all weekend.

  182. Pampering to me is sleeping in on Saturday morning until 8am. I usually have to get up at 5am for work. Those few extra hours are heavenly.

  183. Nothing feels like being pampered compared to having a message or pedicure! They are special treats for me…as I really prefer spending my money on more SU products! Have a fun trip Mary!

  184. I got into stamping after a good friend sent me a home made card during a very long illness. That card stayed by my side for literally months. Having someone actually sit down and create something special just for me when I needed it most is my idea of being pampered. Plus it lasts so much longer than a massage! You just don’t realize what it might mean to someone to know you created something just for them. What we do is the epitome of pampering.

  185. A day of pampering to me is being able to spend the day reading a really good book and not having to feel guilty about it.

  186. Heidi Casler-Muska

    my pampering is getting to spend the whole day making cards with my best friend , fun stories and lots of laughs.

  187. Pampering? What is that? I have never gotten a massage and have only had fewer than 10 pedicures! Only time I feel pampered is when my husband scratches my back. Anyway, would LOVE to tin.

  188. Time at my craft table during the day a nd then a camp fire and glass of wine with my family after dark. Maybe today?

  189. Well Mary I really had to give this some thought. Pampering is not usually a word in my life, but I will try. :-) I absolutely love a day in the beauty salon. Having my hair washed, cut and styled is heaven, followed by a nice hand massage. But mostly, I love a day at the soccer field, football field or softball field watching my grandchildren play. Now thats Heaven as well! Have a wonderful time and thank you for being you.

  190. A 4 day crop and foot reflexology is my favorite form of pampering! Thank you for pampering us Mary!

  191. A special treat for me is selecting a new Trollbead for my most favorite piece of jewelry. My bracelet bead collection has grown over the years, but there always seems to be one I’m wishing for out there!
    Enjoy your pampering time, Mary. Fortunately for us, we’ll all benefit from the new tricks you learn, and projects you see/make! Your creativity is most inspiring :-)

  192. Charissa May-Riley

    A full body massage is the way to go!

  193. Pampering for me is sleeping in with my husband and then having him make pancakes and coffee for our breakfast.

  194. Pampering for me is sitting with a good book with my cat on my lap.

  195. Pampering to me means a period of time for me to relax, no alarm set, no appointments, no interuptions…Quiet time to do what I want for a change and not having to tend to everyone elses needs! aaaahhhhhhh…Can you imagine?

  196. A bubble bath with time to think is a great way to feel pampered.

  197. I like to pamper myself at least once a year with a pedicure. Have my toes painted is relaxing. It is something I do for myself at the beginning of summer to get my feet ready to be seen.

  198. Oh, this is so rare…
    either a nice meal out with friends or to have my hair styled. It is hard to choose.

  199. As a mom to 4 boys, I do not get a lot of pampering but if someone else does the cooking, that is wonderful.

  200. Deep tissue massage, or quiet time with a good book…

  201. The last time I did a big SU card day, I spent the better part of the day on my feet creating wonderful cards that just thrilled my spirit. A foot massage is a real treat! Of course the products are too! ?

  202. Pampering… An afternoon with a good book and no interruptions from husband, child, and telephone. LOVE that!!!! Have fun on your trip.

  203. A different kind of pampering — My bestest friend is coming from Ca for a 2 week visit ! And we are going to stamp and stamp and stamp some more ! With maybe a cocktail and some candles for inspiration in the evening !

  204. Well, I’ve never had it, but a whole day to stamp with my friends, with meals delivered, would be awesome!

  205. A fun relaxing day of pampering to me would be stamping with a friend for the day. THat’s when the creative juices can flow & cards can be made. We get stuff spread out all over the table & stamp, color, glue & assemble to our heart’s delight..Mix in some laughter, lunch & a wee bit of chocolate. There’s the recipe for a great day. Thanks for sharing your One minute to WOW videos- they are inspiring!

  206. love getting a mani & pedi. :)


  207. I would pack a two day picnic with all our favorite foods , curl up by a nice fire, and reminisce with my hubby, all the memories we’ve shared over our 44 years together…..on a bear skin rug of course….out in the wilderness, with NO PHONE, JUST US…..Now, that is PAMPERING to me…thanks Mary for letting me have this moment of ” what if “….it felt GREAT!….smiles
    Enjoy your pampered time away, and thanks for your generosity !

  208. My favorite way to feel pampered would have to be to sit and read a book for hours and hours…no interruptions!!! Wow what a treat that would be.

  209. Hiking in the mountains and taking wildflower photos. Heaven!

  210. Pampering for me would be to sit down with a cup of coffee and read a good book – after I’ve checked out your site with your new ideas.

  211. Pampering to me is very different than the others, it is sitting back and enjoying the way a room looks after I totally redecorate it. Or when I make a new crayon wreath, or a new design of a diaper cake, or painting a project for the grandkids that my husband made. I amaze myself sometimes. I enjoy decorating and crafting so much. My pampering is mental, not physical. Love your creativity Mary.

  212. Pedicures are my standard pampering event. If I want to really treat myself, I get a full body massage!

  213. Just being able to sit down for a couple of hours and catch up with all of the stamping blogs I visit without having to get my sons to all of the sporting events is my way of relaxing.

  214. My favorite pampering is a girls day, which includes a pedicure, lunch with my girls(aka Daughters and Granddaughters), and then some stampin and craftin.

  215. Pampering for me is when hubby says “go spend the day in your stamp room.” Ahhhh, bliss!

  216. I’m with Lynn C. Full body massage which I’ve had only once….ahhhh. The book is essential preferably a mysyery.
    Have fun!!!!

  217. Thanks for fun give away, have a great trip, can’t wait to see the pictures. My idea of pampering is a pedicure. It feels so good, and love how pretty my toenails look when done!

  218. I like to sit down with a good book & a cup of coffee & read away. Karen

  219. Mary, I hope that you enjoy yourself. I always feel realaxed when i get to stamp.

  220. My favorite way to be pampered is by staying in my PJ’s and spending all day in my stamp room with my husband bringing me lunch so I don’t have to leave.

  221. Pampering for me is when hubby says “go spend the day in your stamp room.” Ahhhhh, pure bliss!

  222. A pampered day for me is being with and playing with my family – out to lunch, bowling, playing volleyball, to a movie, out to dinner, playing tennis, and finishing off with a tall beverage of our choice!!! Whatta day that would be!!

  223. I can’t wait to see what all you get to do while at Founder’s Circle!
    My idea of being pampered is having a French pedicure.

  224. Getting a pedicure where they have those massage chairs that you can control and a good cup of coffee! Heavenly!!

  225. Believe it or not, my favorite pampering is to be able to stay in my PJ’s and create in my craft room all day, listening to my music on my iPod. And if I had my own waiter that day, to make dinner and serve my beverages, that would be wonderful !

  226. Pampering to me is date night with my favorite guy, my wonderful husband.

  227. My idea of a good pampering is a couple hours of quiet to read through all my favorite Stampin Up blogs with a good cup of coffee!!

  228. a massage and facial for sure!

  229. Nothing beats a good massage for a great pampering experience! I hope you have a glorious rejuvenating time in St, George! Thanks for sharing wonderful inspiration here on your blog!

  230. Having more stamps – of course !

  231. I feel pampered when I get a spa pedicure with a leg/foot massage…amazing!!! I also feel pampered when I have a whole day to spend in my craft room with no interruptions. Thanks for the chance to win such awesome blog candy Mary!!! Enjoy your pampering in Utah ?

  232. I know a bunch of people will say facial, massage, foot massage…fortunately, I am married to a massage therapist PLUS he just graduated with his esthetic’s license so he can do all the fun facial and herbology stuff…My idea of being pampered is a quiet place to stamp, read, or work on my Bible study!

  233. I’d have to say my husband cooking dinner while I continue stamping. And the bonus…he cleans up.

  234. Pampering for me is having my hair done at the salon; I just love having someone else shampoo my hair! Add in a Starbucks latte and I’m all set!!

  235. A bubble bath

  236. Pampering for me is not having to cook all day – just going out to breakfast, lunch and dinner with my hubby, the man of my dreams! 😉

  237. Pampering to me is a day with my stamping friends making new things with all the new Stampin Up products! I come home all relaxed, energized and ready to use my new stamps and products.

  238. I love getting a massage but a manicure and pedicure is also very relaxing.

  239. It?s amazing what a difference a year makes. Last year my husband of 5 years had an unexpected major medical issue which was touch and go for a few days and is still healing but doing so much better. Pampering to me now is sitting in my living room, whether getting creative or watching TV and hearing in the background my husband singing his music ? I never realized how beautiful it was until I didn’t hear for months and am very lucky to hear it again.

  240. Staying in my PJ’s and spending the morning in my stamp room.

  241. My fave is just being able to spend the day doing what I want, like maybe stamping? Have a great time at Founders!

  242. Pampering to me is date night with my favorite fellow, my wonderful husband.

  243. In my world, an uninterrupted block of time longer than 30 minutes,for paper crafts would be the ultimate pamper for me. Thank you for the wonderful inspiration you provide!

  244. My favorite pampering would be a pedicure while reading a good mystery with Elvis or the Beach Boys music playing!

  245. I love to be pampered! Like many have said, a full body massage is the best! Just relax and forget about everything else! Next best thing is a pedicure. Enjoy your trip to St. George, lucky gal! And thanks for a chance to win awesome blog candy.

  246. Pampering? What’s that? It’s been so long since I’ve been pampered. I think I agree with many of the other comments, that spending a nice long day at the spa would be fantastic. I have never had that opportunity before, but sounds relaxing. Even a nice long bubble bath at home would be wonderful, lol

  247. My idea of being pampered is to sit by the pool or on the beach with a good book with no thoughts of laundry, housecleaning or cooking. Just “Me Time”.
    Have a great time being pampered!

  248. What a great collection giveaway!! Pampering for me is a quiet house with a good book. Candles lit and a warm afghan just add to the mix.

  249. My idea of pampering is to sneak away to my craft area or visit a papercrafting store with a friend. Enjoy your days of fun and pampering!

  250. I would love to go back to Maui and snorkel right off the beach all day … that was the most relaxing trip that made me feel very pampered!

    I hope you have a wonderful trip and I’m looking forward to checking out your updates on Facebook. Thanks for this opportunity to win some great swag!

  251. There a zillion ways to pamper myself but my favorite lately is to have a spa manicure/pedicure and facial combo.

  252. Hi Mary, I just love to be in my craft room and be
    able to do lots of stamping! Thanks for a chance
    to win. Would love all of thes goodies! Love your
    videos and love your studio! maw1@windstream.net.

  253. I would love to be pampered. I’m a dog breeder and board other people’s dogs so I stay pretty busy. Pampered to me is being able to sleep in. . . which doesn’t even happen when I get away. So I do turn to stamping as a get away. Dogs on the couch and scrap paper all over the tables. This is my stress relief! Thanks for the opportunity to WIN!

  254. I have never had much time to be pampered or to pamper myself, I am a Grandma and enjoy pampering my Grandsons who love to see the cards I make and sometimes they make cards to. My favorite are the cards they make for me.

  255. Pampering to me is when my husband is making dinner and I am tucked away in my craft room playing with my Stampin’Up! goodies.

  256. Pampering is not having an agenda and doing what I feel like in the moment. Freedom is a special thing. It often leads to creativity and stamping or searching out new ideas or calling a friend. Time is a precious gift.

  257. Getting my hair done…..without kids! Cut, highlight whatever but just a little me time.

  258. Hmmm, a full body massage is my idea of heaven. But I recently had a wonderful pedicure and having pretty toes to enjoy everyday is wonderful! Thanks for sharing stamping ideas with me, Mary!

  259. We recently renovated a house. My husband designed a fabulous studio for me to do my papercrafting and machine embroidery. Every time I go into my studio I feel pampered and blessed. Mary, thanks for all of your great inspirations!

  260. I love a pedicure! Thanks for the opportunity to win some fun stuff!

  261. Pampering for me is getting a massage or going to get a soa pedicure & manicure.

  262. Pampering for me is just to have “me” time to do whatever I feel like doing! I do enjoy making cards and actually, crafting of any sort, but that’s very rare to have time for that. I don’t have space, so it’s hard to get those things done. Thanks for the chance to win all that great stuff, even if it is retired, it’s all good! I love your creativity and so enjoy reading your blog every day.

  263. My favorite pampering is to either have someone do the housework for the day so I can stay sleep in or work on a project.

  264. A deep tissue massage is the best pampering I can think of!

  265. A perfect day of pampering for me is a day at the spa. It is such a relaxing atmosphere. My treatments would be a hot stone massage, facial and maybe even a pedicure.

  266. A movie, or good book with a glass of wine. Or just a trip to the store with no kiddos!!

  267. Lunch with a dear girlfriend always makes me feel special and grateful.
    THanks for this generous opportunity!

  268. Massage or some quiet time to stamp…

  269. Getting a facial always makes me feel super pampered!

  270. My way of pampering my self is to stamp! I start by choosing some paper and stamp pads, then the stamps! The creative juices start to flow!

  271. Just being able to be alone with a good book or to watch a movie. Enjoying the quiet.

  272. For me…time alone to choose whatever I please is the best way to pamper me. Stamping is my typical choice to fill my time. Thanks for the chance to win some awesome blog candy! Enjoy Founder’s Circle!

  273. Pampered often by dear husband…starts out with a bouquet of roses and a nice meal, a long quiet drive in the country and visit to a botanical garden (lots of color combinations and ideas) and then home to my cardmaking undisturbed. Ah, one can dream!!! let it be so!!!

  274. I love getting a pedicure! It is so relaxing and offers giggles because I am a bit ticklish ?
    I love your blog and ideas!!! Lots of fun!!

  275. I like poking around in quirky gift shops and antique stores for an entire afternoon – usually I don’t buy much, but the process is so relaxing! Have a GREAT time Mary – you deserve it! Thank you for all you do!

  276. At this point in my life, sometimes the best pampering I do for myself is to go out for a run. Having 30-45 minutes of truly uninterrupted time alone to refresh my mind, body, and sole.

  277. Now this may sound silly to some, but to a mom of small children, it’s DEFINITELY pampering…I like to add some DoTerra Citrus Bliss essential oil to my lotion and put it on my body after showering!! I feel SO refreshed, energized, and ready to start my day! I don’t even remember what a full body massage feels like anymore, but I’m SURE that will be at the top of my list again some day. LOL!

  278. I love being pampered with a pedicure! It’s so relaxing.

  279. I love to indulge in a chocolate croissant or brioche from a local french bakery with my daughter, it’s so much more fun to share the pampering! Mary have a fabulous time!

  280. When I am able to get new products from SU and get the time to create with them; I feel so unstressed. That’s as close to pampering as I can get. Have a fun and safe trip! I can’t wait to see your pic’s. Thank you so much for sharing!

  281. Nothing is more satisfying than spending time in my card castle. I am totally pampered there for I am the Queen.

  282. I feel pampered when I can spend a full day in my craft room, with some Christian radio playing, a few good chocolate candies to nibble on and a diet coke! Now that’s living!!!

  283. My favorite kind of pampering is a beach getaway with palm trees and people walking up and down the beach offering manicures, massages, and fresh coconut juice. Aaahhhh….

  284. I’m usually the pamperer, not the pamperee. I really enjoy taking care of people. As for feeling pampered, I guess getting my fingernails and toenails shaped and painted is my idea of pampering. Or maybe a really long hot shower using one of my favorite handmade soaps.

  285. A nice massage would be wonderful! But just taking time to stamp & not worry about cooking or cleaning (at the time! LOL) is probably typical. Enjoy Founders Circle & thank you for sharing your talent with us!

  286. Pampering for me is just making projects with My Stampin’Up. I like to set at my dining table and just “shut everything else out and just relax making cards”

  287. laura_pryor@hotmail.com

    Spending the day with my sister at a spa!

  288. Pampering for me would be a day to read a really good book and not have to feel guilty about it.

  289. llswild4@yahoo.com

    Watching a Christmas movie is a wonderful way to be pampered. Love them!!!

  290. A day of pampering for me is having a day off work, hanging out in my pajamas, reading a book and of course doing some stamping.

  291. Pampering to me means getting some time alone with my hubby. We have 3 little ones that make it difficult to enjoy quiet conversation! I know that someday I will miss it, but somedays I dream of a quiet house! LOL!!

  292. Mary you sure know how to treat a gal. My pampering is a night out for supper. As we are both retired and it is just the two of us at home now it’s hard to cook for two. Hope you enjoy yourself.

  293. Francie Schlesinger

    My favorite way to be pampered is for my husband and boys to go out to the movies so that I have a few hours alone to stamp – no interruptions.

  294. When I’m on vacation I love, love, love going to the spa a day and getting a massage, pedicure, facial…just make a day out of it.

  295. Pampering for me means: FULL SPA DAY BABY!!!! All the works! :)

  296. The perfect pampering for me would be a relaxing deluxe pedicure and manicure.

  297. Pampering for me is a bubble bath, pajamas, and a good book or movie. Have a great time, Mary!!!

  298. My favorite way to feel pampered is with a good cup of coffee, a good book, and my cat, purring, on my lap…..The “icing on the cake” would be something on the stove that smells wonderful and a gentle snowfall outside (I’m one of those strange people that loves fall and winter the best)

  299. Pampering to me is being hugged by those I love.

  300. I would feel pampered if I had someone to clean my house from top to bottom – do all the dusting I despise. If I was lucky enough to be getting a pedicure while the person was cleaning that would be even beter. :-)

  301. Pampering is spending the entire day at the ocean with friends and family. Have a wonderful trip and enjoy the pampering Mary……well deserved!!

  302. Pampering for me is a pedicure! Thank you for the opportunity to win this give away!!

  303. A day of pampering can be many things for me-being at home barbecuing with me son, working in my daughters garden, painting a room in the house or stamping in my studio. It’s doing something I enjoy with people I love. <3

  304. My pampering is being able to stay on bed while my husband watches the kids :)

  305. Seriously, eating — savoring — meatloaf and mashed potatoes once in awhile feels like pampering to me! Have fun stamping and pampering!

  306. A massage works every time!

  307. Well, aren’t you nice–such a cool assortment of goodies! Pampering, for me, is either time to “play in the dirt” in my garden or time to “play in the ink” with my SU goodies!

  308. Having the house to myself! Doesn’t matter what I do, whether it’s stamping or cleaning…….it’s so much nicer with peace and quiet!

  309. Yesterday was my birthday, so pampering I got!! Daughter took me out for lunch to my fave restaurant and then to a cupcake bakery to pick my choice. Out for supper with friends and hubby surprised me with a dozen white roses…..great day of pampering for me!

  310. Pampering for me is a HOT bath with candles burning and music playing! I wish I had a jacuzzi tub!

  311. Stamping and Skyping with my favorite stamp buddy in Arizona!!

  312. Pampering to me would be a nice hot bubble bath, candles burning, soft music and a glass of wine.

  313. A weekend at the beach would be a wonderful, pampering retreat!

  314. Oh my…pampering for me is getting away to spend time with my grandchildren and their lovely parents.

  315. To come home to find hubby has cooked supper and theres a cold glass of white waiting with the bath run…..don’t mind filling the dishwasher! I would gladly pay the pandp for you. lol. Lovely website.

  316. : ) Along with so many others, I don’t really know what pampering would be like. I’ve never had a professional massage or had my nails done BUT I do enjoy just sitting down in the evening and playing Scrabble on my Kindle : ))
    My husband doesn’t enjoy games and the kids live too far away. My Mother and I used to play every time I went to visit her (about 7 states away : ). She is now with the Lord but I’m sure she would be smiling at me as I play on the Kindle.
    Thank you for putting so much helpful information out there for all of us.

  317. My favorite pampering for me is a day to spend making cards, catching up on the shows on my DVR and eating junk. That is the BEST therapy ever…. Thanks for the chance.

  318. Jennifer Burgmeyer

    Pampered. Life is so wonderfully full of kids, school, home, and everything else that pampering sadly is not in the vocabulary. Right now I’d love to sit listening to music and watching the rain. I do find a few moments every now and then to pull out some stamps and create. It’s very soothing to the soul.

  319. mwswinter@frontiernet.net

    A good back rub is my idea of pampering!!

  320. Hope you have a fabulous time being pampered by StampinUp. My favorite pampering is to get a massage and facial on the same day, which has only happened twice, as a gift. Should do it more often. Thanks for sharing blog candy, it looks mighty tasty!

  321. I feel pampered everyday I wake up to my wonderful Husband! But no girl cam turn down a spa day!!!

  322. A glass of wine and a quiet house. Love your designs!

  323. Ahh…getting to visit my grandchildren and their parents is a perfect pampering for me. The 4-year old are mini Stampers already.

  324. My Idea of papmpering is a good glass of wine, a great book, a comfy spot and quietness. I am a busy mom of 3 boys, and I work in a daycare. Quietness is a rare comodity for me so when I have it I treasure it.

  325. Hope you get some great pampering. Hugs.

  326. Pampering would include a nice bubble bath, candles, soft music and a great book to read! Enjoy your trip and keep up the great job of inspiring us every day.

  327. For me, it’s spending time with my “gal pals” eating at our favorite restaurant at Brookwood Community, then shopping in the gift shop and finally spending the afternoon catching up with each other. Nothing better!

  328. What a wonderful way to pamper someone!! I’m anxiously awaiting Thanksgiving Break from school so that I can sit down, drag out my Stampin’ Up things and make some cards!! Counting the days, and this package would be so very helpful. :)

  329. Thanks for this fun contest Mary. My idea of pampering is a massage in a relaxing spa.

  330. To me, the best pampering is getting a facial at the spa. But sometimes I am so relaxed that I fall asleep and then I am kind of upset because I feel like I missed some of the pampering! Have fun on your trip Mary, I hope you feel “pampered” while there!

  331. A few hours in the Urban Sweat Saunas followed by an hour long massage. All the while hydrating with cucumber water!

  332. A bubble bath with a glass of wine and a good book! That’s how I pamper myself.

  333. My idea of pampering is enjoying the sun on my face, my toes in the sand, and the breeze of ocean air while at the beach.

  334. My papmering moment is going to a luxury hotel in our downtown area and being waited on. No beds to make, no meals to cook, and doing whatever I want.

  335. What a great collection giveaway!! Pampering for me would be a quiet house and a good book! Candles lit and a warm afghan- ummmmm,

  336. I love to have a pajama day. Pampering includes whatever feels nice at the time. Usually unplanned, very relaxed and a fun filled day.

  337. WOWZERS !!! I love your give-a-way today. I always do …*smile* THANKS MARY !!!

  339. WOWZERS !!! I love your give-a-way today. I always do …*smile* THANKS MARY !!!

    I hope you have a wonderful trip.

  344. I am off on Fridays and one Friday a month I spend the day on me. I start with a 90 minute massage at Massage Envy and then on to my favorite salon for a facial, haircut and a pedicure.

  347. My idea of being pampered includes a long bath, then curl up with a good book, then enjoy a wonderful meal that’s cooked by someone else!

  348. You are so generous! My most favorite pampering is when my husband brushes my hair and massages my shoulders after a long day at work. He is precious in that way.

  349. I think my favorite pampering has to be a spa day. Years ago when my mom had cancer, my four sisters & I took her for a day spa. It was the most pampering I had ever had and it was wonderful. More so it was wonderful for me knowing that she felt wonderful. Then we took her to Greek town where she got some oh her most favorite ~ Baklava. I think it is kinda pampering to pamper somebody else… Thanks for the invite to win…

  350. Pampering to me is getting to stamp all afternoon and that happens a lot less than I wish! Once a year I will treat myself to a pedicure to get the gunk off my feet but true pampering is my stamping because that is what I love. Wishing you a truly fun time in Utah!

  351. Time uninterrupted at my stamping/scrapping table and my comfy slippers. CHocolate of course is a must!!! Thanks Mary!!

  352. Pampering to me would be a pedicure and some shopping! By myself!!

  353. Pampering is something I like to do for others….so, a day spent with my husband and two grown children is a special treat for me. I also like to spend time paper crafting for them…these things are my favorite “pampering” moments for sure!

  354. My very favorite way to pamper myself is to pop a big bowl of popcorn (buttered of course) and stick a good movie in the DVD player and sit back and enjoy! Doesn’t even cost much! Love your blog, Mary! I get some great card ideas from you!

  355. Mary… a day of pampering for me is to have a full day in my craft room making all kinds of beautiful cards and projects without anyone bothering me for anything. Nothing but my creative ideas flowing with a cup of iced coffee and all my Stampin’ Up goodies!!! I hope I have a day of pampering soon!!!

  356. Thanks for the chance at blog candy Mary. I love a nice hot bath, a good book and a great cup of coffee. Enjoy your stamping and pampering and send us great pictures! I was at convention this year and know that you so deserve this pampering! Hugs.

  357. Wow, what a great giveaway! I’m not a high maintenance girl. The ultimate pampering would be a manicure & pedicure. That is usually my Mother’s Day gift. My favorite way of pampering myself is with new stamping products!

  358. Pampering … getting my hair & nails done “just because”! Everyday should be a Special Occassion!!! ?

  359. Pampering? Yes…I think a nice long massage would be the ticket. And then that Stampin’ Up order I put in would show up and I have the whole weekend to myself to play!

  360. I love getting my hair done or even having my daughter “play” with my hair. It’s so relaxing!

  361. Pampering myself would include getting a message, taking a warm bath then back into my pjs with a good book.. Ahhhh!

  362. Pampering for me is getting a day to do things I enjoy, to get my hair done or just laying in bed watching TV or maybe a hot bath or taking a nap.

  363. A massage followed by a pedicure is my favorite way of being pampered, but I also like the comment one person made where they can stay in their PJ’s all day and not have a care in the world. That sounds luxurious to me since I have four small kids I have to chase around, but I love it!

  364. A massage would be a wonderful way to feel pampered, but I would also love sleeping in while my husband attends to our wee one. Thanks for the chance to win!

  365. Pampering for me is getting a pedicure and reading a good book.

  366. A glass of wine, sitting on the patio in warm sunshine, talking to my children on the phone. Pure bliss:-)

  367. A nice warm bath with candles all around. (And nobody knocking on the door asking me when I’ll be done) :-)

  368. Pampering for me is a good book or new Stampin’ Up catalog with my favorite beverage and time to indulge.

  369. it wouldn’t take much for this stay-at-home & homeschooling mom to feel pampered! I would love for someone to take on my normal responsibilities so that I can lock myself in my craft room for a day! aahhh that would be nice! :)

  370. I like to feel pampered with a relaxing lunch out with friends, especially somewhere that has outdoor dining.

  371. Pampering? I not sure I have ever been pampered, no pedicures, or manicures have i ever had, no body massages either. But all of sounds like a great way to spend the day with no worries. Love your blog and always enjoy the chance to win blog candy.

  372. Pampering for me is renting a hotel room with my best friend Karen, filling it with all our stamping and scrapping stuff, and working on that all weekend!

  373. Pampering means a weekend away with a nice spa treatment.

  374. Pampering, to me, is an hour and a half facial performed by the one and only Barb Hackbarth!! She is AMAZING!! Now if only there was a way to sneak a glass of wine in there while I have this done! 😉

  375. A mani/ pedi alone would be amazing :-) enjoy uour week being pampered

  376. I love a rainy morning with a cup of coffee, back in bed with a good book. Then a nap until lunchtime and an afternoon in my craft room! ;)))

  377. Pampering is just some time to me…with friends and family usually, stamping, laughing and enjoying their company.

  378. Pampering for me is…Coming home after a long day at work and finding supper on the table. Then a good book, a cup of tea and maybe some Hershey Kisses!

  379. My favorite way to be pampered is having my daughter invite us to her place for a wonderful meal, she a good cook!

  380. Pampering for me would start with a fantastic massage, followed by a great haircut, after which would come a mani/pedi – all ending with a romantic dinner with my hubby!!!

  381. The most awesome way I would feel pampered: have someone come deep clean my house and then have my hubby take me out on an awesome dinner date. (I could even leave off the dinner – just having my house cleaned would be so special!)

  382. My favorite way to be pampered is my husband taking my early-rising baby in the mornings to let me sleep a few more hours. Extra bonus if he does some dishes!

  383. A pedi is a luxury to me! I’ve been going to the same lady for about 10 years, so she takes good care of me!!!!

  384. My idea of pampering is more time to share what I love with others. I know you will enjoy your trip. So deserving! Thank you for what you do and sharing what you love! Blog candy is only one way you do that! Bring back lots of inspiration with you. I am eager to be inspired!

  385. My way to get pampered is to go for a walk in the country side and listen to piano music on a cool crisp fall day and enjoy the smell of a fresh baked apple pie in the oven after the walk, fall is my favorite time of the year in Minnesota with the cool air and leaves changing colors – and then to just enjoy the day to myself and do whatever I want to do with nobody around!

  386. A foot massage & pedi! They don’t happen very often w/ 3 sports kids & other activities our busy family has. Love me time!

  387. My favorite pampering method is to make a cup of tea and call a friend to catch up. I live pretty far from all my friends so keeping up with what is happening with their lives is very important to me. When I do this I feel as though I am back home and that is so very relaxing.

  388. I feel the best way to be pampered is to earn it! Whenever I go for a massage or pedicure, I make sure to hit the gym extra hard beforehand so I feel like I’ve deserved it!

  389. Pampering for me is taking a long bubble bath. Wow love the give a way. Have a wonder trip as you are being pampered………..

  390. Pampering is taking my self shopping and a nice lunch at Panera Bread. Going to all of the craft stores and finding bargains.

  391. Being retired means that my husband pampers me a lot, so my idea of pampering is to give HIM a day off! I love to do the things he regularly does: make breakfast, bring in the paper, make and return the phone calls, just cover the little details that usually fall to him. Doing something for him just makes my day!

  392. A bubble bath, relaxing music and a good book make me happy.

  393. anytime my husband makes dinner…. no stress of figuring out what to cook! Enjoy your retreat Mary!

  394. Pampering for me means I get to stay in bed a little bit later, read the paper and drink my morning coffee!
    Oh, how nice….

  395. A favorite way to feel pampered is to have someone else prepare, serve, and clean up dinner! In MY house! I would LOVE that. Meanwhile, while I dream, YOU have a great time in Utah and come back with loads of new ideas for us! And thanks for the chance to win some wonderful “stuff”!
    Barbara in SC

  396. My favorite way to be pampered is my husband taking our early rising baby in the morning to give me a few more hours of sleep. Extra bonus if he does some dishes!

  397. Pampering to me is a soothing foot massage from my husband. He is the best. He pampers me daily by noticing what needs to be done and taking care of it! Although I do love having a mani and pedi!

  409. I feel pampered when I can have a day JUST for genealogy or making cards. The only sound I hear is from relaxing music. No TV, making meals, or housework.
    Wishing you a relaxing day.
    Andrea Storm

  410. Time of my own is what I most treasure; that in itself is pampering to me. Knowing that I may choose what to do for myself is a little present. The ultimate pamper for me is a day that is all about me. I feel selfish just saying it! Lol!

  411. Pampering…hmm…getting my hair done and having the day to myself to do what I enjoy including making cards, shopping or reading a book. Have a great time on your trip and I’ll look forward to seeing pictures.

  412. Right now pampering would be for someone else to come in and pack up the rest of my house so I don’t have to. Our move is coming soon! I’d rather be stamping!

  413. Pampering is such a fantastic word. It has so many meanings and feelings associated with it. But yet it invokes a different emotion in all of us. I love anything from massages, pedicures, or going to the movie theatre with a big bowl of popcorn, or cuddling with one of my kids. These are some of my favorite pampering activities.

  414. My usual pampering consists of a manicure and pedicure, but for a extra special pampering…definitely a full body massage. Enjoy your time in Utah.

  418. I love your blog. My idea of pampering would be a full day of playing in my craftroom without interruption.

  421. My pampered time is when I am down in my crafting room working on cards to send to people to help brighten their day. In return they usually let me know how much they enjoy receiving the cards so that brightens my day.

  422. What a wonderful chance to win some awesome blog candy!

    Pampering for me is when an SU! order comes in…usually once every 3 months! 😉


  423. Pampering for me is having time for hobbies: stamping, papercrafting, boating, four-wheeling, relaxing family time, a good movie…..

  424. Pampering for me is to have breakfast made by my hubby on the weekend. He does it every weekend! Gives me a chance to look at my SU catalog or plan my next card project!! What a guy!

  429. Massage, mani, pedi! I hope you have the best time ever!!

  430. Hi Mary! Enjoy your trip, you earned it and deserve it! Hmm…. My favorite way to pamper myself… When I place a large order of SU products, especially new products, and then when they come it’s like Christmas! Then playing with all my new toys & tools always relaxed me. I love a good massage or facial or mani pedi too. But I just love being a demonstrator and ordering stuff that isn’t specifically for a class or camp is so much fun and always feels like I am pampering myself!

  431. my favorite way to pamper myself is a hot bath. a little lavender and some epsom salts. or i go downstairs and make a card.

  432. Awww, pampering is an hour massage, and then home to a good book and a cup of hot tea.

  433. Pampering to me is sitting in the den with a glass of wine, stamping or knitting, while hubby fixes dinner AND cleans up the kitchen. Lucky me!
    Enjoy your 5 days, Mary. I’m sure you’ll have wonderful show and tell for us soon!

  434. Pampering to me means a nice massage, nails done pedicure and someone else cooks me dinner :-)

  435. Pampering? I’m not sure that’s part of my life :-) but I do like massages (haven’t had one for 2 years) and Stampin Up crafting. Card making soothes me.

  439. Pampered to me means doing what ever I want to do….or not without any interruptions at home to relax without the worry that I need to be here or I need to be there by a certain schedule. Then I would able to ENJOY spending time to CREATE instead of being in front of a computer all the time.

  440. Pampering for me is relaxing in the den with a glass of wine, stamping or knitting, while hubby fixes dinner AND cleans up the kitchen. Lucky ME!

  441. My favorite pampering is when my husband meets me at the back door (he gets home before I do) with a glass of wine. We then sit and talk about our day while sharing the wine. I feel so close and connected to him. What better way to keep our marriage strong!

    Thanks for your inspiration in card making. I love your daily posts!!

  442. Number one way to wind down and feel pampered? A spa pedicure! I would go everyday ifmI could afford it. Thanks for yiur generousity and for sharing your talents with all of us. Blessings, Diane

  443. A wonderful deep tissue massage followed by a big glass of red wine! Tomorrow, I’ll be ready to stamp.

  444. My girls to cook Sunday night family dinner including clean up after so I can watch football.

  445. It’s always relaxing playing with stamps and punches, designing cards for no particular reason or occasion, just to be a little creative and avoid cleaning or another task I probably should be doing :-).

  446. For me all it takes is a new book by Nora Roberts and an empty house, So I can read in peace and quiet !!

  447. HI Mary! My ideal wish for a pampering day would be….
    pedicure with a friend (or my late sister) and a massage….home for a a cocktail or two;) then stamp some cards for next furry fundraiser….while enjoying each others company wouldn’t that be awesome! Maybe watching a Richard Gere movie, hubba, hubba!
    I will be daydreaming about this, thanks for the wonderful thoughts Mary. And thank you for all your creative sharing!

  448. I adore a day where I can laze around in bed reading a book.

  449. Pampering is every Thursday when two other ladies and I meet for breakfast and then come back to my house for some Stampin’ Up. So much fun being together and sharing ideas.

  450. Going out for a special dinner. Thanks for the the opportunity to be pampered with
    more stamping supplies

  451. Now that my kids are grown, I find I don’t need as much pampering! But I love it when “someone else” makes the salad…

  452. I feel pampered when I visit your blog daily! You pamper, energize and fill my brain with excitement to be creative. I can visit daily and you always have something new for me to think about. Thank you!

  453. My idea of pampering is a cup of coffee made by my sweet husband and watching Stampin’ Up! tutorials. I LOVE it!!!!

  454. I pamper myself each and every morning!! I pour myself a great cup of coffee and head to Mary’s Stampin’ Pretty and then it’s off to Stamp with Brian! :) Then I check out my other favorite sites that have posted new great ideas dealing with Stampin’ Up! products!

    Have a great time in St. George Mary! Enjoy some stamping and pampering!

  455. Pampering for me is getting to sleep in & not having to cook Dinner & change diapers! Oh the busy life of a stay at home mom of 2 young kids.

  456. I feel pampered when I have a day to myself. After everyone leaves in the morning on my day off I can relax and have a cup of coffee, read my email, then get ready for the day. A day filled with paper crafting!!!

  457. Good book, hot tea and a blanket setting on my deck.

  458. Pampering for this gal is having uninterrupted Stampin time, no husband, no adult son and the cat not wanting in/out/something when I am on a roll…but have to add Stampin days with my friends and a pedicure….not to forget about a few pieces of really good chocolate…lol! Know you will get lots of pampering the next few days…and thank you for the blog candy chance.

  459. Pampering? You hit the nail on the head with foot massage…along with a soothing facial. Enjoy Founders!

  460. My idea of pampering is going and getting a pedicure. Although, to enjoy some time to myself lately, it’s been just going and creating some cards so my stampin’ room has become a place of luxury and pampering.

  461. For me it is all about SOMEONE ELSE making my food, serving it and cleaning it up! Have a blast in Utah!

  462. My favorite thing to do for pampering myself is a one hour foot and leg massage. My local Spa offers this and it’s amazing! The place is dimly lit, smells of relaxing lavendar and by the time they recline the cushy oversized chair….I’m usually half asleep already 😉 I always come away from my one hour escape completely rejuvenated and calm.

  463. Mary Beth Krakowski

    Pampering, hmmm! A manicure/pedicure feels so luxurious; I ‘ve never had a massage, I think that would be wonderful and lunch with my daughter!

  464. Just having a few uninterrupted hours to craft, whether it be stamping, beading, sewing, etc… I love it all.

  465. I’m the head cook and bottle washer in my house. So I feel pampered when the cooking and kitchen duties are tended to (without my asking) by my hubby. He has been battling Leukemia for a year, so it doesn’t happen often but it’s pretty special when he feels well enough to say “sit down I’ve got it”.

  466. Enjoy your papering time!! I’m jealous LOL! Pampering for me is getting a facial and a massage, but the budget doesn’t allow for that so I feel pampered when I can have uninterrupted stamping time (a nice block of it) or a nice block of time to read.

  467. A quiet day, doing my thing… Pedi with my daughters , a good movie and a nap!

  468. I love to get a pedicure & I love to spend the day in my studio. I just love making cards/crafts…so if I were to get a pedicure then come home and craft away, I would really be pampered.
    Have fun in St. George, can’t wait to see pictures.

  471. Funny thing, I just returned from having my nails done – to me that’s being pampered! Love it!

  474. pampering is a day with no phone calls, no errands, no cooking, no cleaning and laying on the couch watching a good movie. I rarely have alone time so this comes far and few between but is enjoyed when it happens. I do have to say my stamping time is pretty relaxing too!

  475. My favorite is cuddling up with my husband and having him rub my back…a pedicure is also very nice!

  476. Ahh late at night everyone in the house is asleep and I have the TV + remote to myself there I sit watching something I like and having Milano cookies and some milk –

  477. Having my husband sit next to me and rub my tired feet…while we both listen to jazz and have a little wine and cheese….now that’s pampering…..

  478. One of my favorite ways to be pampered is when my husband cooks breakfast. I then get an earlier chance to go in my stamping room and create. Thanks for all your inspiration and have a great trip!

  479. My thoughts of pampering is to receive my fun stamps I ordered in the mail and be able to actually go straight into the house and sit down and be able to use them to create something fun!

  480. Have a wonderful trip to St. George! My idea of being pampered is having my husband take care of dinner. That usually means pizza delivery, but it gets me out of the kitchen once in a while!

  481. Hi Mary,
    Oh my gosh! Great for you and the others who are retreating to Pamperville! I work full time for the county, do my own lawn work and even clean my gutters and all the while I am thinking of the variety of cards that I will be making once I retreat to my Pamper-Craft Room proudly called my Stampin Up haven. My haven brings me lots of stress relief, a sense of peace, and creativity.

  489. Pampering for me is when my guys clean house without being asked!

    Enjoy your trip, Mary, you certainly have earned it. :)

  498. I’m not one for massages, so I’d have to say dinner at my favorite restaurant with my husband. Delicious food, great conversation and a couple if frou-frou tropical drinks and I’m in heaven. Thanks for being so generous with the blog candy, Mary, and have fun at Founders Circle.

  499. My favorite way to feel pampered is to get my nails done followed by a fresh hair cut and then followed by a fantastic massage and a dinner out with husband or friends. This has never happened to me all in one day or even all in one year but it would be nice!!

  521. Pampering for me is going to a spa nearby where in between treatments, you can go to the “quiet room” and read/nap.

  522. Pampering for me is time to do what I want…playing with my stamps, creating cards, or reading. Kind of an escape into an alter reality!

  524. Pampering to me is having everybody in the house leave with something to do. turning off all noise elements and sitting in a rocking chair listening to the quiet.

  525. A 90 minute massage is total pampering to me!

  526. Ahh, pampering oneself is…how should I put this… like having unlimited chocolate and not putting on a pound! I do enjoy my pedicures and having my feet massaged even though it tickles! Thanks, Mary, for the chance at some candy blog!

  527. Pampering for me is a mani, pedi, and then some stamping with friends!

  528. Facial…enough said!

  531. My favorite way to pamper myself is a beautiful quiet morning spent in my craft room. No makeup, no hair products, no rushing out to work….just a morning to relax as my natural self making cards with no interruptions.

  532. Love a Spa Pedicure and then dinner and a movie.

  533. I love to go shopping and my two favorite items to buy are jewelry and shoes.

  534. Teresa C in California

    Have a wonderful trip! We look forward to seeing the pictures!

    My favorite way to feel pampered is to take a day off with my husband, and take a day trip getaway.

  535. My idea of pampering is when everyone is gone, I start the day with a long hot bubble bath with listening to Kenny G and soak in the peace and quiet. Then I head out to the mall to find myself something that is just for me, (like jewelry!!!!!!!) Then I go into my scrapbooking room, shut the door turn on some music that touches my creative side and have fun… I am so glad I found Stampin Up..

  536. Sunday breakfast in bed, made (and cleaned up!) by the children, and reading the newspaper while I enjoy the omelette, bacon, hash browns, and coffee

  537. The best way I like to be pampered is laying by the pool, music going & friends to share it with me. Sooo relaxing!

  538. Hillary Lobenstein

    Pampering means going to a spa for the morning, going out to lunch with a friend, and having some time to stamp at home (while my husband has the kids busy and out of the house).

  540. Pampering for me is a little bit of quiet time to myself – to craft of course!

  541. Pampering for me is getting to have some one on one time with my hubby having a “date night” enjoying some Hawaiian food and going to a Hawaiian concert afterwards.

  545. Pampered for me is a barefooted walk on the beach! Have a wonderful trip!

  551. I don’t get to do it very often but getting a massage is the ultimate for me.

  552. Pampering to me is a little time in the hot tub, strawberry lemonade and some card making all while someone else cleans up my house! Thanks for the chance to share and play along!

  554. True pampering for me is when my husband cleans the house (or at least helps!), then cooks dinner & does the dishes afterwards, & then entertains the kids so that I can have time to do whatever I want to do. Those things don’t happen often, but when they do I can be found in my craft room immersed in beautiful Stampin’ Up products!

  565. One of my favorite ways to get pampered is when I go to my salon to get my hair washed and add on a scalp massage on top of that. Something about it takes me back to when I was a baby and my mom would wash my hair for me. Oh, memories! =)

  571. First – have a wonderful and save trip to Utah. It’s the little things that my husband does for me. Ex: When it’s cold out he’ll go and warm up my car so that it’s nice and warm when I have to go out or when He knows I’ve had a long day he makes dinner or when he knows that i need something special while I’m busy with crafting he’ll help me out, and the list could go on. It’s all the little things that most people take for granted that he makes me feel special and pampered.

  582. My day of pampering would consist of a shopping trip with girlfriends, mani-pedi, getting my hair done and dinner out. However the dessert would be the real feature! :) Then I would ask to live that day over and over. Lol. One can always hope right!

  711. Pampering is by far a massage and a quiet time to relax and enjoy the small things in life. My relaxing time is creating ! ! !! Stamping my Art Out Veronica Meyer

  713. My favorite pampering would have to be uninterrupted crafting time! Although, a shopping spree to the bookstore is a real close second!!

  714. Pampering for me is a cruise vacation. I don’t have to cook, clean, or any other household duties. I can just sit in the hot tub, then relax on the deck with a good book!

  715. Hi Mary!

    My type of pampering is to have time to sit and read a book and sip on some green tea! It’s ideal!

    Thanks for the blog candy!!

  716. Make me a nice cup of coffee with hazelnut creamer, add a toasted bagel and let me curl up with the Sunday papers. Refill coffee and it’s off to work my way through the crossword puzzle. Ahhh, happiness.

  717. I guess at home I am pretty simple. I feel pampered when someone else cleans up after I have cooked a great meal. My ultimate pampering is a week on a ship with family & friends.
    Mary you are such an inspiration. CAS is my toughest style. I would LOVE to win this awesome blog candy so I can work on my CAS!!!

  738. Pampering for me is a pedicure and manicure.

  739. Pampering is having my sister with me to enjoy a day of shopping, eating, and pedicures!

  740. Pharpo@windstream.net

    A massage followed by a light lunch and time relaxing with a loved one; on a nice cool fall afternoon. This,to me, is a little bit of Heavenly pampering!

  741. Oh, Mary, do I envy you all the stamping/pampering with Stampin’ Up…Have fun! Thank you for the opportunity to win this stamping and pampering blog candy!! You are so generous!!!

    P.S. Hope it’s cooler there than it is here in Tucson!

  742. For me, a busy grandmother of 12, pampering is a day with no appointments, no grandchildren and just doing whatever suites my fancy in any given moment! Those days are few and far between, but that’s what makes them so enjoyable!

  743. A massage is great…and so is a manipedi but I feel really pampered when someone else does the laundry!!

  744. Pampering is now a common word to me since I retired…spending hours on end in my craft room no longer makes me feel guilty.

  745. I love being able to relax and read (uninterrupted)a good book AFTER going out for a great dinner! I say “why settle for just ONE relaxing thing!” LOL

    Hope you have fun in Utah…..oh heck, what am I saying? I just KNOW you will! How can you not, right? It IS SU after all!

  746. Anytime my husband takes the kids and I get to choose is my pampering. Sometimes I choose to stamp, or get a pedicure, or go shopping, or read a book uninterrupted, or even catch up on sleep. Anytime I get to choose what I do is a luxury!

  747. For me it is a pan fried rainbow trout dinner at any historic National Park lodge after a day of hiking!

  748. Pampering is not having to be anywhere that day and I can sleep later and leisurely begin my day. A foot rub would be over the top!

  749. A pedicure!

  750. Pampering for me is having the house to myself to do whatever I want to do!

    Enjoy St George!

  751. pampering to me is a relaxing massage with lavender oil then a good cup of tea

  752. I love how pampered I feel after having a spa mani/pedi. I always feel like a kid with a new pair of shoes because I can’t quit looking at my pretty painted toenails!!!

  753. Ahh, pampering. I would love a body wrap treatment followed by a scrub, and then a good full body massage. Bliss! Hope you’re having lots of fun over there! =)

  754. I would have to say eating out would be a very nice way to be pampered.
    Who does not like pampering!

  755. Is it bad to say I like it all??? Pampering means being self indulgent for a time… Since that isn’t the norm for me. Doing things I love, special treats, not doing things I don’t enjoy, and the list goes on. Hope you enjoy your pampering!

  756. Pampering includes a day spent crafting with my talented girl friends. So enjoy your blog!

  757. Pampering with a massage will do me just fine!

  758. My favorite way to relax and feel pampered is to get a 90 min. massage followed by a pedicure and manicure.

  759. Pampering…. Wow, been a long time since I’ve done that :) Have to say pedicure & manicure. Thanks for the opportunity to win and for all the amazing ideas over the years!

  760. My favorite way to spend spa time is in my scrapbook/stamp room just piddling around.

  761. I pamper myself by sitting is a quiet room and reading a great book. When I get pampered my husband goes to the bedroom and leaves me to peace and quiet. Lol

  762. I pamper myself by making cards and other paper products. Right now I’m working on a Thanksgiving project and I couldn’t be more relaxed.

  763. a mani, pedi & massage, please!

  764. Pampering for me is to have a facial with my friend who has an awesome and very soothing spa. After the wonderful facial, I love to come home to read and/or do some stampin’ :-)

  765. These days with two little kids my idea of pampering is a trip to the store by myself!! :)

  766. Having someone cook dinner for me from start to finish and………taste good!

  767. I treat myself to a hot bubble bath then my jammies and a good book, all snuggled up with a warm golden retriever granddog!

  768. Mary,

    This is an awesome Blog Candy giveaway … I never win … but I always try … I feel pampered when someone else cooks me a nice meal .. or takes me out for dinner … which doesn’t happen often .. but when it does it’s always special.

    Thanks again,

  769. I just get in my recliner, pull a blanket over me and snooooooooooooooooze. And try not to look at my paper supplies strewn over every surface of my kitchen!
    Love your ideas!

  770. Pampering for me is spending a long weekend camping. That is the only time I get to relax and not feel like I should be doing something else!

  771. Quiet time reading a book!

  772. Pampering…

    Having my hubby make dessert, while I snuggle up by the fire with a good book.

  773. My pampering is when my husband says I should sit down and relax, and he’ll make supper for us. I can go visit stamping sites on the internet, read a book, stamp some cards, or do nothing at all, while he makes us a scrumptious meal. My hubby is one of the best, and really makes me feel pampered.

  774. Pampering for me is coming home from a long day of work, and having nothing to do when I get there because my loving husband has already done everything. Then i get to do whatever I want for the rest of the evening.

  775. Pampering for me is just about any type of salon treatment… but tonight I had a salon treatment that I was surprised at how relaxed it made me… after the fact. I had my legs waxed, in preparation for our beach vacation that starts on Saturday!!

  776. Pampering is coming home from work and my hubby has dinner already on the table. Love your blog and thanks for the change to win.

  777. My idea of pampering would be to be let loose in the Stampin’ Up warehouse to use whatever supplies and stamps I want for a day.

  778. Pampering is having a day to myself to do what ever I choose which could be spending the day stamping, quilting, baking or a spa treatment.

  779. So, I don’t get a lot of pampering BUT I just snagged a great deal on a combination 60-minute massage, manicure, pedicure & glass of wine for less than $100. Whoo hoo! Now that is going to be a lovely afternoon. Thanks for the opportunity to win Mary!

  780. Pampering definitely is a massage! So nice! Thanks for the giveaway, Mary!!

  781. Hope you have a fabulous trip! I’m sure you’ll be very pampered by Stampin Up. My favorite pampering is to get a pedicure. I love just going & relaxing for a couple hours. Plus, I get beautiful toes out of the process!

  782. My idea of being pampered would be a massage and pedicure/manicure. I have recently los 75 lbs, and now in constant disarray, due to size changes. So, the above would be wonderful and then of course having a day to do just my stamping and making a bunch of cards for the holidays. Thanks Mary.

  783. Sounds silly but my favorite “pampering” is when I am able to take my horse to the beach right as it opens to start the day off right! Makes for a MUCH better mood and day!! Enjoy Utah!

  784. A pedicure and massage….Heaven!

  785. Pampering…now that’s a term I haven’t been able to enjoy. Just small thing, no cooking, no cleaning, and all time to stamp in my room.

  786. I am sitting in a dreadful, freezing, mind-numbing workshop at the moment and all I can think about is getting out and going for a walk. That is how I’d like to be pampered at this moment! Thanks for the fabulous blog and great give away Mary!

  787. A message is my special treat!

  788. ahhhhhh a 90 minute body massage.

  789. Pampered is getting some quality time with my husband. We have such busy lives that it is always nice to just be together without phone, text, email and the like.

  790. My idea of pampering is a soak in my jet tub…..ahhhhhhhh.

  791. I love to be pampered by having someone else wash my hair, maybe a pedicure and then someone else figuring out what is for dinner and cooking it for. ME! Then a great book and lots of quiet time to enjoy it.

  792. My idea of pampering is no housework, cooking or laundry!

  793. I’ve never had a full body massage, but from reading what others posted, I might have to try it soon!! Thanks for the chance to win and hope you have a great time!!

  794. I have not been able to see my post on here so I am sending this: My idea of pampering is to be able to sit in my stamping area and work on my card making which relaxes me so much and of course this is after a pedicure. Enjoy your well deserved trip! Thank you for the chance to win this great blog candy!

  795. Pampering for this old lady is being able to sleep late, Paddling around the house in my PJ’s all day long. A glass of freshly brewed Iced Tea always near-by, and then retreat to my own little world in my scrapbooking room and create. Making everything and nothing too.

  796. Sunday morning, sitting on the swing in my backyard with the paper and a whole pot of coffee to myself!

  797. pampering…I’m not sure what that is any more. It took three weeks to find time to get my nails done. I love bubble baths with music and candles. Unfortunately even though we have a garden tub the onl time I get to do that is when we go to Gatlinburg.

  798. My idea in pampering when I can afford to buy scrapbooking products and be able to spend time in my hobby room to be creative. Love to be in my hobby room!

  799. kikigraham@comcast.net

    A foot rub, a back rub, a scrub rub….and
    RUBBER STAMPING… you make my day special. Thanks

  800. It’s been forever, but when I feel the most pampered, is when I get a couple days away with my husband, and we go out to eat at a nice restaurant, and I get a pedicure and massage.

  801. A massage is my ideal pampering. I hold all of my stress in my shoulders, so the rare massage I get is treasured.

  802. Massage, no question.

  803. My favorite way I like to be pampered is when my husband cooks dinner. That is such a treat for me. While he is cooking, I spend that time in my card room usually putting finishing touches on my latest card. Mary, you are such an amazing person. I appreciate your daily blog and your WOW videos. Thanks

  804. My favorite way to be pampered is a manicure and pedicure.

  805. A whole day in my craft room, with hubby dealing with dinner is my ultimate nirvana! Hope you have a wonderful time in St. George!

  806. Pampering to me is a cup coffee and studing my stampin up catalog!

  807. Oh wow, hope you have a great time and get lots of pampering in. hmmmm, I would say my favorite way to feel pampered is when my husband rubs my feet at the end of a long day, and he does this almost weekly, so I am a pretty pampered and spoiled wife, lol. Fabulous give a way, thanks for the chance to win.

  808. Pampering to me is definitely a foot massage and pedicure : ) There’s nothing like paying someone I don’t know massage and make my feet pretty. And even better when it’s after a day of shopping. This doesn’t happen very often to me so when it does it’s so great!

  809. A mani pedi is my favorite pampering. Sleeping late on a cold morning is good too!

  810. Pampering is having a manicure or a pedicure. Divine.

  811. I pamper myself by buying a box of chocolate covered strawberries and indulging myself with every single one of them.

  812. nothing can get much better than having a manicure/pedicure with your girlfriends & of course a little card making.

  813. Pampering is having my children do all the laundry and putting it away. Hope you are having a great time!

  814. kcook1016@comcast.net

    A day of scraping & stamping. Food in the crock pot, Husband & son OFF fishing! Relaxing!

  815. Arising on a Saturday morning before anyone else is up, enjoy my coffee with a good book, snuggled under a blanket on our kitchen couch. Solitude is lovely! Really enjoy your creations, Mary.

  816. I love having my hair washed at the salon. I love having my hair cut and styled, too. That’s my idea of pampering.


  817. Pampering? Can’t get mani/pedi now because I haven’t found job yet, but that would be first choice. So… I love to get a hair cut about 3-4 times a year. I LOVE the shampoo part (like the gal in the tv commercial….ooh aah, ooh aah! Hope you enjoy every minute in Utah Mary…..how fun!

  818. Oh….Pampering to me is going out with hubby to the restaurant that I like,, where they serve the best baby back ribs!!! No cooking and no cleanup is nice also. Thanks for the chance of winning your great blog candy, Mary.


  819. I love a full body massage for my pampering session, but I especially love getting hugs and kisses from my grandbabies!

  820. Oh, to be pampered. Just the thought of it makes me feel pampered. A little piece of chocolate and some alone time to stamp.

  821. Massage with relaxing music followed by a coconut flavored cocktail.

  822. maries75@verizon.net

    Mary, Love your tutorials ‘Your cards are simple, but elegant. Thank for sharing.

  823. Love to be taken out to eat one of my favorite dishes and the cleaning done for me.

    marg0006 at Verizon dot net

  824. Hi Mary -enjoy stamping in St. George ! I’m due to be released from the hospital tomorrow or Friday (10 days this time — for a total of 9weeks) and boy could I use some pampering – perhaps a massage and a facial would make me feel so much better. I have to have 6 to 12 weeks of IV antibiotics but in answer to my prayers, I might be able to have this done at my home. I can’t wait to stamp again and maybe even start on my holiday cards! Thanks for a chance at great blog candy.

  825. My favorite pampering is to have “free” time to play with my Stampin’ Up goodies with all of my children out of the house. It is a rarity!

  826. Pampering is when my husband says “I will shop and do the dishes while you stamp”. He pampers me all the time. Enjoy your trip.

  827. A massage! :) I love foot rubs, too! :) and coffee, and hugs…I’m easy to please!
    Thanks for the chance to win! :)

  828. My pampering is dinner at my favorite tiny little Thai restaurant with my BFF of 20 years…usually a 4 to 5 hour dinner- the little Thai guy just smiles at us as we share our lives with each other- laughing and sometimes a tear or two. We usually get together each month but tonight it had been 6 weeks since we have seen each other, and we live only 15 minutes away!

  829. . . . a nap on a weekend afternoon . . . sheer indulgence!

  830. My idea of pampering is a relaxing Swedish massage. Oh such sweet ecstasy! Jy tomita

  831. Pampering….hmmm. What exactly is that? Lol. Having a 4 year old girl and a special needs 6 year old boy, my idea of relaxing is taking a shower or believe it or not, doing laundry (all by myself, without the kids around).

  832. Pampering for me is time alone with a cuppa and a book.

  833. For me pampering is getting a pedicure. I hate yucky feet so it is a necessity, but also some much needed “me” time! Enjoy your trip, can’t wait to hear all about it! Thanks for an opportunity to win some goodies, so very sweet of you :o)

  834. I feel so pampered when I get an ultimate spa foot pedi, complete with hot stones and my feet soaked in hot wax! And I can’t forget the flower design painted on my big toes. Just divine!

  835. Pampering for me means anything that will help me take that long breath that I’ve been needing to take and focus inward instead of on those around me (which is always with a military family of four!). It could be as simple and happy as paper crafting with a good friend and some junk food or as fancy as a mani/pedi and some shopping. We all, but especially us gals, need moments from time to time to recharge in whatever way helps us be a better “us.” Thanks for the chance to win such lovely goodies! 😉

  836. Pampering for me is a weekend getaway, it’s nice to spend time away from being busy around the house.

  837. I love a pedicure, nice when a friend can go with me and enjoy the time together.

  838. A pedicure with an extra long foot massage!

  839. This may be a little different but pampering to me is when my husband and 6 year old son make me a breakfast together (it makes me so relaxed hearing them laugh and talk together and i do not have to do anything) and then they let me relax the morning reading or they go out golfing and I get the house to myself.

  840. The few times a year my husband and I steal away for a couple of days to reconnect always feels like pamper time for me, he treats me special and makes me feel like a queen. Lucky me!
