    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  3. I do genealogy. My favorite wooden cooking spoon has engraved on it “I seek dead people”

  4. Refinishing old furniture…love to make something old become new again. Sometimes refurbish the original piece…sometimes a total redo.

  5. Besides paper crafting I enjoy gardening. Your blog site always inspires my creativity.

  6. I absolutely love making cards with or without gifts, which I enjoy giving to friends and family. I also enjoy different projects, crocheting and jewelry making. All these gifts I accompany with the cards I make. It’s fun! Thank you Mary for giving me a chance to win the Dear Doily set.

  7. I don’t have one other favorite hobby! I have sewing and basket making! Good thing I have an understanding husband. Making cards is where most of my time is spent.

  8. I love getting together with my grilfriends. Sometimes we meet up for appetizers, dinner or go to a play. I am so grateful for their company. The safe environment allows me to recharge and refresh!

  9. Paper Crafting is number one for me!
    But I also belong to a local group that paints rocks and leaves them in random places for others to find. I love sharing my creations!

  10. I would say embroidery is a favorite hobby and also sewing, using my late grandmother’s Singer sewing machine. Her name was Iris so I call her sewing machine ‘The Iris’ ?

  11. Cardmaking is my #1 hobby. But I do love to bake breads, cookies etc and share with my elderly neighbors.

  12. Besides stamping, another favorite hobby of mine is gardening. I find it relaxing and I enjoy being outside.

  13. Besides STAMPING!! my favorite hobby is genealogy. I inherited a house that I call The Pink House because when my grandma lived there thats what she would say “At My Pink House…” The house is located in a little mining town in Colorado called Victor. The Pink House was built by my great grandparents, Jake and Maude Grater in 1895. My grandparents Roy and Nellie Grater moved in during WW II. My dad, Richard Grater moved in at the beginning of 1973. Now it is my Pink House. I love researching stories about everything that happened in the house and everybody who lived there. I will pass down not only The Pink House to my son but also a book with its history!

  14. Well, I have lots of hobbies, but I’d say gardening is my 2nd fav. Thank you for the chance to win some blog candy!

  15. Hello Mary – love your blog, you always manage to inspire me. I have been a papercrafter for as long as I remember. However, when I’m not stamping, I absolutely love to travel. Visiting fantastic places, interacting with people different from myself and learning about their culture, and ohhhhh …… the glorious food!

  16. Thank for this opportunity. I have been crafting forever and tried many things, but paper crafting and card making will be one I hope to always do, but I also love to garden, particularly day lilies. Love your site and especially you “WOW” tips!

  17. Thanks for a chance to win this set. I had my eye on this set and couldn’t purchase it before it retired. My favorite hobby besides paper crafting is counted cross stitch and quilting

  18. My favorite hobby besides stamping is cooking but I also like to sew and I’m getting into gardening lately

  19. Life beyond paper crafting for me involves gardening and fused glass. There’s nothing like being outside and getting your hands dirty, except maybe being inside and getting your hands dirty! Creating with glass is amazing, there are so many different colors and textures. In a way it is very similar to paper.

  20. I would have to say my hobby besides crafting is reading. I enjoy historical fiction.

  21. Wow, thank you for such an awesome question. My favorite hobbies are.reading mystery novels, jewelry making (nice to have a gift for all those cards) and genealogy.

  22. I love taking walks out in nature. I need to balance the inside crafting time with outside activities. This doily set is my favorite. Thank you for the chance to win.

  23. Love the fantastic Doily set!! my other hobby is gardening. Moved to a new house recently and have to start over! It’s quite the challenge!

  24. My second favorite hobby is reading. Nothing better than curling up with a good book and a hot cup of tea on a rainy day (except for papercrafting, of course!)

  25. Besides cardmaking and scrapbooking, I really enjoy camping, reading, and photography.

  26. When I’m not paper crafting, I love to play golf! There’s something relaxing about hitting that little white ball around on a beautiful day, on a beautiful golf course— just enjoying nature!

  27. Papercrafting is my number one hobby. I would say knitting is my second, which I learned at a very young age. Thanks for your great papercrafting ideas and for the chance to win!

  28. Oh I love to sew and quilt. To me it is like being an artist but instead of paint, you use fabric.

  29. I love needlepoint and counted cross stitch, when I’m not drawing and stamping. Thank you Mary for sharing your talent with all of us!

  30. I love this bundle and was disappointed that it wasn’t available when I was ready to purchase. My other favorite hobby is wreath making.

  31. Besides paper crafting/stamping, I love any kind of sewing project and playing the hammered dulcimer. Love this set!!

  32. I love to sew. I have most recently been making different sizes of zipper bags to use for travel or to hold other small items. When I give these as gifts I use my Stampin Up products to make a cute tag to match the bags. Very fun!

  33. I love camping, or should I say glamping. We like traveling and taking the dogs with us and there is no better way than taking the 5th wheel trailer. I also always take some stamping supplies for when I need to take break from the fresh air .

  34. In addition to crafting with Stampin Up, I love watching Korean dramas. Sometimes I craft and watch the dramas at the same time.

  35. It would have to be cooking/baking in the cooler months, Gardening is what I’m most involved with now.

  36. Since I moved to California 23 plus years ago, I have been perfecting the art of making sourdough bread. I have baked enough loaves that I consider myself an expert. What do I do with all this bread? My husband and I polish off a loaf every few days. I give away loaves of bread daily to friends, family, and anyone who stops by my house.

  37. Other than papercrafting, which is a big other, my favorite hobby is reading. I also knit and spin fiber, which involves handling objects, but one reason I love making cards is the pleasure of handling the actual materials. Choosing color, cutting paper, and getting ink onto paper is a great chance to feel good about what I’m creating.

  38. favorite hobby hmm other than papercrafts, well knitting and learning a new craft or improving on one i know about

  39. I love flower gardening along with card making. I’m not sure which influences my choice of flowers or stamp sets. So many to choose from!!!

  40. My favorite hobby would reading books and camping other than crafting. Reading book is important to feed knowledge into the brain.

  41. I do acrylic painting, but recently discovered Alcohol Inks. Besides making extraordinary pictures, I also use them as a background piece for my cards.

  42. My favorite hobby would be trying new recipes (cooking or baking). It is exciting to temp the tastebuds with new foods, and most of the time we like them. Thank you, Mary, for another wonderful bundle, which I don’t own.

  43. Next to stamping I love to cook – especially for my family!! I also am a rabid recipe collector and haven’t tried all of them yet!!

  44. I love your ideas and fun posts. I would dearly love the dear doilies bundle!!

  45. Oh my, what a difficult choice to narrow it down to just one hobby. At the moment it would have to be quilting. I have made quilts for both of our children, all six of our grandchildren, and the four great-grandchildren. Now that the greats are out of their cribs I need to get busy again and make some for their “big kids beds”. Maybe if I get busy real soon I can finish them by Christmas. It will be difficult with all of the fantastic offerings in the new catty. Thanks for offering to have one of us the be the winner of the Dear Doily Bundle. You are so generous.

  46. Besides making cards, I love to make fudge and candy to give away. I don’t usually eat it but love to see someone smile when they eat it.

  47. Sewing has been a passion of mind. Then I wanted to give a present to my Mom & Dad for their 50th anniversary and I learned to quilt. They enjoyed the quilts.

  48. My other favorite hobby is reading.
    I enjoy your blog. Thanks for sharing your ideas with us and for chance to win!

  49. Always love your inspiration and the work of others you post! So many talented people out there! I have been crafting all my life thanks to a crafting grandmother who got me going on some project every summer while visiting her. I must say papercrafting is my favorite but I have made a living out of floral design and weddings.

  50. My other favorite hobby is scrapbooking and the neat thing about that is that Stampin’ Up! fuels both card-making and scrapbooking! It’s easy to double-dip.

  51. My second favorite hobby is cake decorating: wedding, cathedrals, castles, dolls, life scenes and anything you can think of!!! I build buildings with kit Kat’s and other edibles. I go into my own little “zone”!

  52. Camping is my 2nd favorite hobby.
    I receive your daily emails and want you to know that I am always inspired by your creativity. The blog hop on 6-12 was fabulous.

Although passionate about my paper crafting, I also love crocheting. I make lots and lots of baby blankets with matching hats. It’s sort of a mission to keep as many babies warm as possible. I will be taking my first guitar lesson tomorrow. I hope to be able to learn enough to consider it another of my hobbies. Jean S ~

  170. My favorite hobby besides paper crafting would have to be cake decorating, which I actually have been doing longer than scrapbooking and card making. This is a GREAT giveaway Mary, thanks for the opportunity to win!

  171. I love scrapbooking. It tells the stories of our lives. It’s tangible for everyone to revisit at any time. It showcases many wonderful memories and can be passed down from generation to generation to maintain the spirits of those who have earned their angelic wings. The albums have been used to resolve many disagreements about something from the past, lol. The albums have provided many hours of smiles, laughs and even some tears, on a snowy day. All in all, scrapbooking provides much needed therapy for me and a timeline of our lives for everyone!

  172. Unfortunately I do have another hobby other than papercrafting and that would be SHOPPING!$$$

  173. Baking, Cooking, Sewing……I even macraméd a 5 foot giraffe once upon a time!!

  177. I like to find old and vintage items and repurpose them into to something new and fresh.

  178. Flower gardening has to be my next favorite hobby. However, it’s not as easy to get up when I am on my knees gardening as I get older.

What a beautiful gift you are giving away.

  186. I started learning to quilt last year. It gives me a lot of happiness and lets my mind wander as I am sewing, giving it a well-deserved break. Thanks, Mary, for all your inspiration!

  195. Hi Mary,

    Other than card making and scrapbooking, I enjoy quilting to relax.

    Thanks for all your fabulous card ideas!

  196. Other than papercrafting, I love to read! A good book and an icy cold diet coke is pure heaven for me.

  197. I love to Read BOOKS! Books that inspire my creativity, Books that let me live in pass, Books that take to different places in the world and beyond, Books that help me escape from the real world! The printed Word is a gift I totally and forever will enjoy!

  198. I have several “second” hobbies! Reading, quilting, cross stitch projects, walking, etc. Thanks for the chance to win a great bundle! ?

  199. Love home decor and anything that involves organizing from closets to drawers to craft supplies!

  200. My favorite hobby other than card making is traveling. Still have some states in the US that we havent been. thanks for everything Mary.

  201. My favorite is painting. I do not get to do very much of it any more but I really loved to do decorative painting. So carding making is so much faster so I get immediate satisfaction. Thank you so much for a chance at your wonderful blog candy.

  202. Love your blog! Thank you for the opportunity to participate.
    I love to work out in the yard with all my plants when not paper crafting.

  203. Thank you for the blog candy! My other hobby is shopping which is sort of what we do when acquiring our crafting supplies.

  204. I’ll be honest with you, I don’t have a second hobby! I know that sounds awful, but, I don’t. I have 32 grand children, I spend most of my ti,me making cards for them. I also want to add something. If I’m fortunate enough to win, I’d like to donate the stamp set ONLY, I want the dies. But, if I don’t win, then I don’t win!

    Second, thank you for this opportunity to apply to win this awesome bundle. I love doilies, have some of my grandma’s. lol

    thank you,

  211. I would have to say sewing. I sew dresses for Dress A Girl Around the World- a non profit organization that is part of Hope for Women International. It is the goal to endure that every little girl has at least one new dress. I have sewn over 500 dress in the past 8 years-just as addicting as card making is

  212. Thank you Mary for sharing this beautiful set! I tried ordering it, but I was too late! Thank you very much for your generosity! Love your blog postseason!

  213. Hard to pick just one but my favorite hobby outside of paper crafts is reading…my daughter loves to read as well so sharing that quiet time with her is always a special time!

  214. I also pain ceramics as my other hobby…..I like the whole creative process even when I case others. and you are one of my favorites to case!

  215. I love photography as well as crafting!

    so many things to explore like traveling and various forms of art… one day right!

  216. I would say this is a hard one, but it’s not. I love love love papercrafting, but my second favorite hobby is nail art – I am obsessed with making my nails match everything!

  217. I love to do counted cross stitch. I’m very lucky that I am still able to see so good so I am able to read the charts. I love that Stampin Up has made some stamp sets that resemble cross stitch.

  218. Oh boy, that’s a tough one—I like birding and photography, especially photographing birds! Stamping/cardmaking is #1.

  219. My favorite hobby besides papercrafting is quilting. With SU beautiful DSP I can even incorporate some quilting with papers into my papercrafting!

  220. When I’m not papercrafting, I enjoy playing video games. My husband and I have met people around the world because of playing online games.

  221. I love anything and everything that involves paper crafting, but I do love to mix it up in the kitchen cooking and baking (involves lot’s of chocolate)! Mary, thanks for all you do and share, you are a true inspiration to all us Pals!

  222. I love gardening, which is probably why I love paper crafting! I love the creative process and seeing things “come to life” because of what I’ve done. With both, I find great peace just in the process of it…getting my hands dirty with dirt or ink touches a place in my soul. And I get to see the final result over and over! Thanks so much, Mary, for all you give of yourself!

  223. I have come late to the doily-loving state, so don’t have that die…would be so fun to be able to make doilies in all colors!!!

  224. I love flowers, so in the spring and summer I am working in my gardens or with the flowers on my deck. I enjoy seeing the hummingbirds and bees visiting the floral blooms. I have several perrenial gardens in the yard and seasonal flowers on the deck. They take a lot of watering but I love the results.

  225. Woodcarving is #2 and how I met my husband. He helped supply wood cutouts to make Comfort Crosses, to bless folks at our new Ronald McDonald house, and many other people since. I started making cards to give with the crosses, combining my 2 favorite crafts with blessing other people. My Stampin’ Success came today and it has a page showing how to stamp and color on wood!! Can’t wait to try it! Becky

  226. Reading is my favorite other hobby. I have been part of a book club for a number of years and that makes the pleasure even greater!

  227. I have two favorite hobbies. The first is reading. I will read almost anything. The second is playing bridge. I have found fund bridge groups wherever I am living or visiting.

  228. Thanks for another chance at a free giveaway, Mary, I love to garden, its a great hobby. Though my REAL hobby is collecting Stampin’ Up products. Ruth M. in MI

  229. I love running and biking! I also enjoy reading and looking at home decor trends.

  230. Other than paper crafting, I love to walk on my treadmill. Now, if only I could spend more time on the treadmill, but stamping in my Stampin’ Pub (A Stamp In Each Hand) keeps calling me 🙂

  231. I love running and biking! As a more “mellow” hobby I enjoy reading, and looking at home decor trends.

  232. I would say “Bible Journaling” – mainly because I LOVE to study God’s word; but if that’s considered paper crafting, then I’d say “cooking”. I enjoy trying new recipes, and experimenting with different ways to fix meals. I’m not much of a baker, but I DO like to cook!

  233. In addition to Stampin’ Up stamping (since 2001) with my consultant and Senior Center, I also scrapbook, intragrating ideas between the two. But long before I was introduced to these cherished hobbies I was an avid reader and cross stitcher. I still read all the time but the stitching has gone to the wayside in favor of stamping!

  234. Special family time is ALWAYS a priority. That aside, I love gardening and watching all the pretty plants, shrubs and flowers grow. My paper crafting reflects much of this as it is another form of beauty, individualized by one’s taste, preference of color palette and creativity. I have to add that much of this nurturing of plants, though not intended as such, provides food and dessert for so many of God’s wildlife. Another form of giving back while enjoying nature. ?

  235. Thank you for offering such a wonderful bundle set. My other passions include gardening and spending time with my six grands!

  236. Oh, I love bird watching! That includes traveling to the “hot spots”. And wouldn’t ya know it, birds always look great on cards!

  237. I enjoy playing Bridge. It makes me think and plan my next move. I don’t always win but I keep going.

  238. I love going to see movies with my husband (whenever we’re lucky enough to have a babysitter for our son!).

  239. I enjoy gardening very much and find real flowers help me to create accurate colors on the flowered Stampin’ Up cards that I am pleased to share with others.

  240. Hey Mary,
    I’m not big on cooking, but I love to do the prep work! This works great for us, because my MIL is teaching my husband to cook, and my contribution is getting everything ready!
    I also love reading!

  241. Thanks for your generosity! My next favorite hobby is playing games. We have all sorts of games we play as a family

  242. I have to say my absolutely favorite hobby other than papercrafting is SCUBA diving! I have been a certified diver since 1970 and jump at the chance to dive whenever I can! Yes old women can still dive! Thanks for offering such a beautiful set!

  243. I like to do sewing as my other hobby……..such as small quilting projects, table toppers, etc. Plus cross stitch. Thanks for an opportunity for a lovely stamp set. Card making is really my #1 love.

    Mary

  245. I love papercrafting! My first love was genealogy and family history. With 21 grandchildren and a great granddaughter, keeping track of the family has always been a joy for me. We have traced some lines back to ancient times and love to learn about the people from 100-200 years ago that we can really identify.

  246. It is so gorgeous design .. I was planning to order it but it told me, it is no longer disconnected .. I was so disappointed ..

Thank you. =0\

  257. Before I was introduced to paper crafting and SU! in June 2017, I had never really crafted. I sewed a little but that was really not for me. I got hooked on paper crafting right away and totally love it! I have always enjoyed reading and I still do! Thank you for the opportunity to win this bundle. It’s one I was unable to purchase but love it!!

  258. In addition to paper crafting, I also enjoy knitting — and I’m learning to speak Spanish and listen to Spanish language recordings while I do both.

  259. What a beautiful set. I love dollies! After papercrafting my next hobby would be quilting. I love taking large pieces of fabric, cutting them into smaller pieces and putting it back together in a beautiful pattern. Sewing it together to be used by someone to keep warm. It reminds me a lot of card making. Cutting pieces of paper, gluing them together and making a beautiful card or scrapbook page. Thanks for being so generous in your giveaways!

  260. Papercrafting is my #1 hobby and a close 2nd is reading. Love your blog, ideas, and videos.

  261. Totally reading! Never happy unless I have a stack of new books to look forward to! Love your blog!

  275. Love the doily set it is so versatile. I did not purchase it but wish I had as it would be a great addition to my collection. So many great cards have been made with this set

  276. Gardening and more importantly my roses that line the sidewalk in front of my house. Spraying and feeding them, deadheading blossoms, and picking the flowers and watering them is very time consuming. These beauties bring so much joy to my neighborhood. People pushing walkers, moms with strollers, dog walkers, and just people out getting their steps in stop to put their little noses in for a moment and smell the roses. I never realized how such a simple thing as rose garden coud bring so much joy to so many people. I get comments all the time about how much they enjoy my garden. It’s like are cards and albums we make. I never realized how many people have kept every hand made card I sent them. Then one day people started telling me and some even display all my cards each year for the seasons as decorations to brighten their homes. It’s the little things we do that can touch peoples lives in big ways.

  277. Although papercrafting is my ultimate hobby, reading is a close second. I have given up trying to break my habit of reading two or three books at the same time. Somehow, it all works out.

  278. I love baking. I do a lot of it for others. It is so relaxing and I can do it while I am also making cards!!!!

Over the years I have found so many things I did not know about my ancestors; they were crafts people: from collaging, to hand sewn quilts, to keeping local histories, and my great grandfather was a blacksmith. I have used some of my favorite stampin up sets to do scrapbooks on my family history.

  281. Thank you, Mary, for your generosity. A close second to cardmaking is reading of mysteries! You think you know how it will end…but do you really?!! 🙂

The teacher believes in free hand drawing, but I cannot draw, so when at home I stamp and watercolor. I finally got up the strength to share some of my stampin up creations with my class, asking the teacher to help me determine how to shade and shadow my stampin up teapots and those detailed handles I was watercoloring. Everyone, teacher included loved my teapots in the many colors I stamped and painted, shadowed and highlighted in a variety of trials and errors, but all looking fabulous. Now I can safely and enthusiastically mix the two without fear of being chastised for not drawing my own. I love the stampin up family, all sharing and friendly group of people and your blog is fabulous!! Thank you for all your sharing.

I gift many of the foodstuffs that I grow either directly from the garden or baked/cooked. Paper crafting containers, labels and cards makes presentation of the above items even better!!

  503. Besides my addictive paper crafting, I also do a lot of sewing making quilts. I find both to be very rewarding hobbies. I share both with my family members who really appreciate the time involved.

  504. I enjoy crocheting, when I am trying to relax and “not think”. I have also been doing gifts using essential oils. (Lip balms, dryer balls, scrubs, etc.)

  505. Favorite hobby— word puzzles of any kind, but jigsaws too. Thank you for your inspiration,

  506. My favorite hobby other than card making is working in my flower beds. Nothing more relaxing than playing in the dirt. ?

  507. Thanks Mary for the chance to win an awesome set, my favorite thing to do when not making cards is working outside with my flowers.

  508. The two hobbies I enjoy besides cardmaking are gardening and reading. It is often difficult to juggle my time between all these fun activities. ?

  509. My favorite hobby outside of paper crafting is teaching yoga: 5 classes a week minimum.

  510. Other than paper crafting my hobby is amateur dramatics. I’m currently rehearsing for a play now

  511. Love to sew! My sewing and papercrafting projects are usually done to celebrate birthdays and other special occasions for my family.

  512. I have a couple hobbies other than stamping, photography, sewing, and neexlecraft. My main focus has been papercrafts for several hears. I love your blog and the designs you share.

  513. Had to think about the question really hard… Since paper crafting is number one through 10 on my list! I think I don’t most have to say Basebal, after watching 14 years of my children playing, I still like to tune in for games on TV !

  514. Other than paper crafting, my favorite hobby is quilting. It’s another opportunity to creat and give away with love.

  515. My other addiction would be quilting. When I started paper crafting I thought at least paper wouldn’t take up as much space; how wrong I was!!

  516. Woodworking, I make furniture for myself and family. They give me pictures or specific ideas of what they would like and I build it for them
