    My grandson loves to read. (2nd grade) This book sounds good. I will have to find it for him. Thanks

  2. And now for Candy #3!

    I signed up to follow you last week because I am always looking for card and 3-D ideas to use with my peers at work. Wanted to say I do love you book picks. Love You Forever is a very difficult book to read. I used it for a speech when I was getting my teaching degree. I held the book so the class could see the pics and I just had to read the words. I started crying anyway. I tried reading it to my Kindergarten class and cried too. Then they kept asking me to read the book that made me cry.

    Nice to find a co-educator that enjoys paper crafting too! Finding many ideas on your blog, love your header and all your creations!

  5. I would have to say my favorite tool is my cricut expression. I use it on all my projects! I have a wish list that seems to grow by the minute and sometimes can change when the wind blows! Right at this moment I really want the new E2 airing on HSN April 26th! Thanks so much for the chance to win! Hugs, Leanne

    Awesome blog candy(s). Thanks for the chance to win.

  11. My favorite tool ..well I have have 2 . My cricut big E. ....and my cuttlebug. I love embossing. I would love to get my hands on the irock tool. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  12. I guess my #1 tool is my computer: photo editing, creating cut files for the Cricut, digital stamps, etc. Probably the tool I most would like to try would be the ATG -- you can never have too much good adhesive.

  13. Wow, a very generous blog candy. Congrats on 2 years. I still love your exploding birthday cupcake you shared. I use it for coworkers. My favorite crafting tools cutterbee scissors, MS scoreboard and cropadile. I love me some tools!

  15. I can tell you're a teacher. I think it's cute you're including books with your blog candy. My kids are too old for them, but I babysit the little boy next door and he would love this book! I too love the tools, especially the banner die. Thank you so much for my chance to win.

  16. My #1 tool is probably my Cuttlebug. I use it almost every time I make a card, scrapbook, or other paper craft. A tool that is on my wish list is actually the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher in this blog candy!!

    (I subscribe to you through Google Reader!)

  17. Such wonderful books! Thanks for the generous blog candy too! My favoriete tool right now is tools. I'm loving on the Distress Inks having too much fun blending and inking. I use the splat mat for different effects and the blending tool also. A tool on my wish list is an oldy but would be new to me. The girls and I want to give quilling a go so I want the basic set to try.

  18. Wow, you sure are being generous Karli. When I first checked these posts there was only one book you were giving away; now all three posts have books :). The last two I have never heard of...would love to win at least one of them, hehehe.

    My most favorite tool is my Gypsy. The hot item on my list is the Cricut Expression Version 2 Anniversary Edition that is being released later this month! Hope it isn't too expensive.

  19. My #1 tool would have to be my Cricut Expression. I use it for everything!!! I would love to get Imaginisce's cordless glue gun a.s.a.p.!!!

  21. Love your blog! Congratulations and thank you for a couple of chances to win! My favorite tool is scor-tape...I use it to craft all the time and I've maybe even used it to hem my pants in an emergency :)

  22. Wow- you are very generous- what a fun Blogversary celebration- love the look of the new Nestie banners so much! Hummmm if I had to name one favorite tool for crafting- it would probably be the Nestabilities.......although, there are other tools I would have trouble living without! Hugs!

  23. My favorite tool is my Spellbinders Wizard (hope that's considered a tool)! I use it all the time!
    Thanks again for the chance at all this awesome blog candy!!!!

  24. My #1 crafting tool would be my Silhouette SD. As I only have a few punches so this comes very handy to cut doilies, lil butterflies and MORE butterflies! LOL
    Your candy has been added in the Blog Candies section at Feline Playful!

  25. Oh, WOW! Now, you are talking my world! I am a serious tool freak!! I agree with you about the ATG gun! It has to be my "go-to" on every project! I also have to mention my heat gun! I use it for embossing, of course, but I have found so many more uses for it along the way! It is awesome for removing labels from acetate and containers! About the only thing I have left on my "wish list" is the sprays/mists and anything new from Cricut! Thanks again, Karli, for these wonderful opportunities to share in your blogoversary celebration! Hugs and blessings to you!

  26. I love tools too! My paper trimmer is my fav. use it all the time. A close second are my punches! thanks! joy4umetoo at hotmail dot com

  27. I just found your blog and love it! I would say that my favorite tools are my computer and my punches! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  28. I have so many must-have tools that are easily within reach on my table, it's hard to choose. I'd have to say that I have been grabbing my Cuttlebug more than usual because of all the PTI dies that have been released. If my bug breaks (which I hope it doesn't), I've been oogling the Vagabond ever since I saw it at my LSS. That's one cool toy!

  29. My favorite tool is my Cricut. Even though I only have the baby bug, it's still great for all of my crafting :)

  30. I have a lot of tools that are my number 1 but I am going to have to agree with a lot of people on this post and go with my computer because I would not be able to do all I do without my computer. I also have been using the Cuttlebug and Cricut a lot recently. Email is dustyberman at hotmail dot com

  31. Wow! What a generous package! Thanks so much for offering it. I love your sense of humor and am really glad I found your site! :)

  32. ello Karli - I am happy to be following - I am enjoying your Blog - thank you for the opportunity to play for your YUMBLY Candy. I have linked you to my Blog:
    and would love you to visit sometime!
    My favourite tool would be my Distressing Tool - which at times is scissors (when I cant find where I put my tool) I love all tools - they make creating so easy and fun! Thanks again! {{{hugs}}}

  33. Another great candy selection. I agree that book is a good one, too! I think my #1 fave tool would have to be my nesties or my stickles (they really aren't a tool, but I can't go without them). Hmmm, as far as a tool I've been eyeing, probably the air brush system, but I don't really know if I would use it, looks fun though.

    Happy Blogaversary Karli! I feel lucky to have you as a blogging buddy. You are always a great inspiration! Wishing you many more blogaversaries in the years to come!
