  • Bernie

    Oh nice goodies Marlene…hope I win…’cos I want that pink pinny….it’s for my hubby’s christmas pressie you see….MM = My Man and Making Memories…well that’s what it’s all about…so yeah, I’ll wear it (and a smile) and as i coyly turn I’ll ask ever so sweetly “darling, does my bum look big in this”….? bx I’m just soo cheeky you see!! bx

  • Jennie

    MMmmm mmmysterious mmarlene candy. Mmmm. I congratulate you on being so honest about the sheer amount of stash brought back from the US and disguising some of it (LOTS) of it as altruistic is tres clever!I think personally that all the giggles and laughter and well..sheer hysteria are due to too many E numbers from the crafty goodies. Not alot of people know that whilst small children become crazy creatures that bounce off the walls after too many E numbers in sweets and drinks, grown adults are similarly affected by craft stash. We don’t bounce around in the same way- we shriek and say things like ‘wow-American crafts letters made of python-wow!!!’ ‘In Pink!’ ‘Aaargh!’ And ‘oo oo oo…look…glitter in 376 types of well pink!’ ‘I’ll have one of best have two in case I run out’.
    Now you need to detox Marlene and the prognosis is good…until next time!!! Gald you all had fun!

  • Screppa

    Love your candy! Me like:0)

    (jumping up and down – me me me me me me me me me me me)

  • Elaine Livesey

    Oooh, what lovely goodies!! I’ve just enlarged the photo, and then I had to lean in to have a really good look, and now I’ve sat back down at my desk, I notice I’ve got strawberry yoghurt on my right boob!! That’s what happens when you eat at your desk,( plus I’m looking when I should be working Huh!) I knew you’d all have a blast! Can’t wait to see what you’ll make with all your new stash.
    Lots of love
    Elaine xx

  • Elaine

    Holy cow that’s a lovely heap of stash! Just how big is the stash mountain in your craft room at the moment, Marlene?!!! Did you actually bring any of your clothes back with you, or did you abandon them in favour of the Slice et al? 😉

  • Sue L

    Would give half my stash to go to CHA and the other half to win the Lottery. So now I don`t have any stash, can I maybe win some blog candy?

  • Alison

    Just left my housework to help my daughter print out a picture of Peppa Pig and whoops find myself blog hopping!!!!
    What do I find but an absolute plethora of blog candy. Do my eyes deceive me – hang on I will just put my glasses back on – no I was right. Some kind and generous person is giving away a load of fantstic goodies. To be in with a chance to win all I have to do is link to the candy – seems simple enough!! But my daughter now having finished her lunch wants sweets NOW!!!!!
    Right where was I, ah yes, Make you laugh? How on earth can I do that without pulling funny faces at you and you can’t see me!!! Perhaps you should imagine me doing the funny faces. If you have a good enough imagination you should be falling on the floor by now!!!!

    Good luck everyone

  • Chrissie

    Wow Marlene, this has to be the biggest pile of candy I’ve ever seen! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win it.

    If crafting is a petty crime
    I will soon be doing time
    If crafting is against the law
    I’ll do time forever more

    I sit and craft from morn ’til night,
    my family do despair,
    but armed with heat gun, ink pads too,
    I really just don’t care

    The more I see, the more I want,
    I cannot see an end,
    to sticky pads and funky foam,
    I have to spend, spend, spend

    I made a candle, just last week,
    it turned out quite a mess,
    I think I’ll stick to making cards,
    coz that’s what I do best

    (Written by Karla)


    Crafts are here, crafts are there.
    My crafts supplies are everywhere.
    I really should clean this mess,
    But I like it, I confess.

    Floor is littered, chairs are piled,
    Kitchens looking pretty wild,
    On the table, counter too,
    Seems that any place will do.

    Hall is stacked with cartons high,
    Filled with things folks like to buy.
    Garage is full, but so far…..
    There’s still room to park the car.

    I never have an idle day,
    New ideas come my way.
    Don’t know yet what I’ll create,
    But my Imag-e-nation’s great.

    My family smiles, they don’t complain,
    Although at times I am a pain.
    But when all is said and done,

    I really am a crafty one.

  • Nunt

    Ooh, wonderful candy! I could really use some cheer up right now, as our soon-4-month-old Parson Russel terrier puppy pooped on the floor (again) during the 10 minutes me and hubby drove down to the grocery store and he was alone. He hadn’t done his business since morning, so the smell and the sheer size of the MOUNTAIN of poo was quite nasty when we came home.


    Kids. Especially the furry ones. They have no backward memory, so you just have to swallow the “NOOOOOOO YOU LITTLE BRAT!!”-yell crawling up your throat and clean up. Well, hubby did, it’s his dog. Thank god.

  • Maria Therese

    wow what a yummi candy!! I really would like it to come to Norway all though I have scrappy shopped 4 times since my 2nd princess was born (3 months ago ) and all I have made is 3 cards and 2 layouts and all from old stuff I had from before.. *faint*

  • belinda

    Hallo Marlene, wat een prachtige tijd moeten jullie hebben gehad samen! Mijn vriendin waar ik normaal gezien ook overal naartoe ga, is momenteel heel ziek. Zo moet ik veel alleen naar beurzen en allerhande, wat natuurlijk niet kan tippen aan de tijd die je samen kan doorbrengen! Ik hoop dat ze na de zomer eindelijk thuis mag blijven (uit het zziekenhuis) en dat we in het najaar veel beurzen en leuke tijden met veel freubel momenten kunnen waarmaken. Want samen hebben altijd de grootste pret! Veel succes met de candy 🙂 xxx

  • sarah

    Wow Marlene,

  • Vicky

    Cor Blimey Marlene. That’s one heck of a candy you’ve got there! I’d have love to have gone to CHA as well, but probably just as well I didn’t looking at your stash it would have cost me a bloomin fortune! It wouldn’t have gone down so well with him indoors {he’s a bit of a tight a**e!}. Looks like you managed to spend the GDP of a third world country! Lol! Good on ya gal, at least you enjoyed yourself! Thanks for the chance to win this yummy candy though. Fingers crossed!

  • Beverley

    WOW! What an amazing candy! Thanks for the chance to win! Something funny… today I went to meet my friend in Starbucks in a nearby town I don’t go to that town but I had a rough idea where it was, so I get into town & I thought I had better get some money out from the cash point so I went to the nearest one got my money & went on my way. Starbucks wasn’t where I thought it was and ended up about 3 shops down from the bank with Starbucks on the other side of the street. Needless to say my friend was sitting by the window and saw me at the bank & walk off in the other direction, I had gone in a complete circle! Typical me!! It made my friend laugh & I had a chuckle too! Have a HAPPY day!

  • Kastrullis

    I would love to get my hands on this candy, I´m in!

  • Crafty Jenn

    Holy amazing Blog Candy! Did you buy a whole scrapbook store?! Thank you so much for the chance to win.

    A little something funny…..

    My parents had cleaned out their garage last weekend and discovered boxes of mine that I had packed when I was younger. Stuff I evidentally thought I’d want to keep “forever”. One of them was a suitcase FULL of New Kids On The Block stuff!! To include 3 dolls still in their boxes! Ha Ha! I cracked up so hard when I opened the case and saw all that. What cheesy memories!

    WOW Super great candy. I enjoyed watching all the CHA Youtube videos, wish I could have been there. Looks like so much fun. I have linked this candy on my blog, thanks so much for the chance to win.

    My son (7) was chasing my 10 month old around the house (he’s such a mother hen) I was sitting at the kitchen table watching and drinking my coffee. She’s all over the place and into everything right now. He tells me, “Mom, you need to watch her like I do”. I started laughing it was so cute.

  • Maureen W.

    Awww – you are so sweet and generous to share your stuff! I’m so jealous – wish I could’ve stowed away in your luggage and gone to the show with you… although I guess it wouldn’t make any sense for me to go all the way from Hawaii to the UK just to get in your bag and come back to the US, huh?! Anyway, congrats on winning the Slice and welcome back!

  • Gigi

  • Mariska

    Wow wat een geweldige stapel candy Marlene! Wat lief dat je dat in de groep gooit! Ik weet dat de kans bijzonder klein is dat mijn nummertje uit de hoge hoed komt rollen maar stel nou dat dan ben ik op vakantie tot de 17e. Mocht je mij dan dus mailen, en ik zei al dat ik best besef dat de kans klein is he :), maar toch, stel nou dat, een mens doet niet mee aan een loterij omdat ze zeker weten dat ze geen kans maken toch, dus mocht je mij nou mailen dan moet je dus niet boos worden als je niet gelijk iets hoort. Ik lig dan met mijn billen in het zwembad en kan er dan echt niks aan doen :). Wel erg gaaf hoor dat jullie met z’n allen op pad zijn geweest, een mens zou er jaloers van kunnen worden maar ik begrijp helemaal waarom iemand jou graag zou willen belonen voor je geweldige creaties.


  • Jo B

    Wow what a gorgeous lot of goodies, the charms are scrumptious, please add me to the candy giveaway.
    So kind of you and wishing you all good things for you and your blog.

  • Patricia

    Wauw!!!!!!!!!! Wat een super candy Marlene!
    Ik volg je blog al een tijdje en blijf me er steeds maar weer over verbazen hoe mooi jij je kaartjes maakt! Ben echt een super fan van je.
    En deze candy is eigenlijk to much to give away, maar toch heel erg lief dat je dat doet.

    Heel veel succes en ik blijf je blog volgen.

    Groetjes vanuit Nederland.

  • Tracee provis

    MMmmmmmmmmm yummmmmmmmmy candy(oops drooling on keyboard not good for the image LOL)how glad am I that all this contains no E numbers otherwise that ‘candy’ would be enough to keep me dancing for days.

    Thanks a lot ^^

  • Denise Lynds

    Hi Marlene, wow what a lot of candy. I havn’t been scrapping long but I know Claire (blogsite Silvercustard) which is where I got your link from (have now added you to my favourites). My husband bought me lots of scrapping equipment for my birthday with the message “all the gear, no idea” – I have lots of photos to scrap but am not very creative. I especially like the chipboard album as I have some lovely photos of my son aged 4 dressed as a ninja turtle for a fancy dress party – however when one of the mums asked what he was dressed as it would appear he had misheard the character he was and said he was an “injured tutle” not a ninja turtle – simply waiting to be scrapped eh!!!

    Thanks Denise

  • Lovely Linda

    Hello Marlene from Canberra Australia!! Wow – what YUMBLY Candy…CHA is repsonsible for so-o-o much! LOL! You are very generous to be giving all this away – someone is going to be blessed!! (Oh that it would be me!!

    The first time I won anything on SCS I screamed the house down yelling I’ve won something’ everyone got excited and asked what?how? I kept calling out ‘I don’t know!’ Excitement echoed through the house, especially as circumstances dictate that I am not able to buy any craft supplies for a time!! Last week I won something and everyone had the same reaction ‘ Awww – WHAT NOW!!’ Amazing isn’t it!

    I am linking your Candy to my Blog
    and would love you to visit sometime! God bless you!

  • Deirdre McCarthy

    Wow Marlene – thanks for this wonderful chance – hugs fom Ireland!

    WHO DO WE LOVE!!!!!!
    (Glad we were the other side of the camera)

  • Stacie

    Great candy! Thanks for the chance to win!
    I posted about this in my blog.

    Just waking up so the only funny thing I can think of at the moment is one time when I was in college and I was soooooo exhausted before going to bed that after washing my face I went to grab my toner and accidentally grabbed finger nail polish remover and boy did that sting!! OUCH!!! It was the same color and same style bottle so now I make sure to double check everything! Don’t want to put ear wax remover in my eye or vice versa….LOL!!!

    Have a fun and giggly day! 🙂

  • Tanya Sh.

    Hello! What’s a candy! Thanks for a chance to win!


  • Beth/thequeenofcups

    I am such a desperate housewife! This good looking young guy with tons of tattoos kept riding past our house every day on his bike. I began to look forward to seeing him until I was dense enough to shout out “I love when you ride past my house with all your tattoos!” ugh! What a fabulous loser!! Needless to say he doesn’t ride past my house anymore.
    I’m a follower and I’ve linked you on my sidebar too!
    Happy day!

  • Nikki C

    Hi Marlene,

    You have some fantastic Candy & I’ve added you into my sidebar.

    Something funny … humm… Have you ever noticed how our lovely Men are invincible at times when it comes to home repair .. My guy is very good at it and built alot of beautiful things but when it comes to turning off the power to change a lite switch out there’s a 20/80 chance that he will leave the power running for a while and try to change it with a live current. I swear one day I watched him get Zapped at least 8 times in a row maybe more. There he is saying he’s fine “ZAP” he curses and goes right back in there “ZAP” does a little dance and jig and sticks the screwdriver right back into the box 1.2.3.”ZAP” I’m just sitting there looking at him like no he’s gonna go turn off the power .. NOPE of course not in goes the screwdriver yet again “ZAP and ZAP again” I look at him Honey do you think you should turn the power off ” NO he Grumbles And right back at it he goes” Needless to say he got zapped a few more times did alot of cursing and Dancing and finally when he couldn’t feel his elbows went down and turned off the power. I just stood there laughing because i just couldn’t believe he’d let himself get zapped that many times in a row.. The other day the dimmer was broken and there he is replacing it .. Honey is the power off .. What do you think he reply was … “No it will only take a second to do this”….. “ZAP’
    down the stair he goes and shuts off the power…OMG I just stood there laughing. The things our men do to make us Laugh so hard

    Thanks for the chance and I hope you all enjoyed my little story

    Yummy candy, thanks so much for the chance to win

  • Annelies

    Wow, wat een fantastische candy! Voor een grappig verhaal duik ik even terug in de tijd. Toen ik klein was had ik problemen om ‘sch’ uit te spreken. Natuurlijk wilden volwassenen dat altijd oefenen met mij. Dus toen iemand mij op een dag ‘schoenen’ wilde laten zeggen, antwoordde ik gewoon dat ik liever sandalen droeg. Zelf herinner ik me dat niet meer, maar regelmatig komt dat verhaal nog eens naar boven en ik probeer dan heel ver weg te kruipen. Zonnige groetjes uit België, Annelies

  • Sarah B

    Hi Marlene, This is not for the candy, but just wanted to say your 7 page spread in Cardmaking and Papercraft are fabulous, I love the all, You have a very distinctive style and I have to buy the magazines I see you in, I really hope I can live up to yours and Tiets’ standards, Can’t wait to start designing some sugar, Hugs Sarah B X

  • Alison

    Wow, what wonderful blog candy! Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Christine (Craftling)

    Phew!! Do you KNOW how long it has taken me to find my way to the bottom of this list of eager-beavers* queuing up for the chance to win your blog candy? My index finger is throbbing from the effort of turning the wheel on my mouse.. those muscles were NOT meant to work that way! I need a splint and a massage!

    Still, it was worth the build up of lactose acid where lactose acid has no business building up, because the stash you’re offering is awesome in the truest sense of the word, and you’re a very generous lady.

    Me? Not so much. Now.. where did I put that ad? The one that says, “Have you been the victim of an injury that wasn’t your fault?” Hmmmm. What’s the going rate for a sore finger these days?


    Chris xx

    P.S. Please note that this word has an entirely innocent meaning here in the UK!!!

    Lot’s of love from Nederland,

    After counting all the entries you’ll sleep just like a log!
    And then you’ll pick the winner, and that will be just fine…
    I wish good luck to everyone,

    CAndy… CAndy.. Candy
    Joke to make you smile

    Children standing in line at school lunch queue.
    At one end is a large bowl of red apples and sign that reads
    “take only one, God is watching you”
    At the other end is a basket full of Yummie Chocolate…. and a note that some one has written
    “Take as many as you like, God is watching the apples”

    Well it made me smile :0)

  • Juls

    Wow Marlyn this is such a kind and generous offer from you.

    So fantastic of you to have won the pink Slice in CHA too!!

    Watching the man on the you tube clip reminded me of that old UK gameshow when they shout “Come on Down” to one lucky audience member. (It may have been called the Price is Right ?) Thank goodness no-one’s top fell off like I think happpened a few times on the show when some over excited woman would run down the steps excitedly and hysterically waving her arms in the air LOL

    Anyway, delighted to hear you all had a blast and thanks again for the candy opportunity.

    Hi Marlene, Queen of the most Generous Blog Candies!!

    Are you sure you weren’t on a diferent flight home because you had to charter a separate jet for old your yummy stash?! Perhaps with all those goodies you could build your own plane & fly us all out there next year. I’m sure you could find instructions on the interweb somewhere!!
    To be honest I don’t know what some of that candy is you have on display. But it all looks lush & want it! Is that so wrong? I would have spellt it rrong, but that sounds like an in joke & I don’t get it!
    Thank you for the opportunity to win such a fab prize & the inspiration you provide throughout the year.
    Big Hugs,
    Andie xx

    Great candy!!!!

    Wow what a generous blog candy Marlene, I have nearly finished my 3years of nurse training (at 40yrs old thats a miracle) when I started my hubby said the one piece of advice he could give was to always listen carefully !
    A male patient was lying in bed with an oxygen mask over his mouth. He is still heavily sedated from four hours of surgery. A student nurse appears to give him a wash and freshen up.”Nurse” he mumbles from behind the mask “Are my testicles black”. Embarrassed the student nurse replies “I dont know i have only come to give you a wash”. Concerned that he may elevate his vital signs from worry she overcomes her embarrassment and sheepishly pulls back the covers, raises his gown and lifts and moves his testicles around. Then she takes a closer look and says “Theres nothing wrong with your testicles, theyre fine”
    The man pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her and says “Thankyou very much for that, but i think you misheard me, I said “Are my test results back !
    This was a little story my hubby told me, i hope its not too rude, but it sure made me laugh. And i always listen very very carefully.
    Thanks for the chance to win

    Hiya Marlene,
    What super fab candy i would be grinning like a cheshire cat if i was
    “the Chosen one!”
    A little funny for you (genuine)
    I’m not that good finding my way round computers and when we first got one I freaked out that I had to phone the help line ( knowing that i wouldn’t have a clue what they were talking about) any way the guy started asking me general questions to find out the prob and asked “What windows to you have?” to which i replied “Sash windows but whats that got to do with my computer!!”
    This story gets told on so many occasions much to my embarassment by my other half !!!
    I will never live it down – hope it made you chuckle x
    Fingers crossed x and thanks for the chance x
    have a super day

    Hiya! Awesome bit of candy u have there! I’ve added a link to it on my sidebar, and I have a little candy on my blog too, if you wanna check it out 🙂 Thanks so much for the chance to win your awesome candy!

    And to make u giggle I try a Seinfeld quote I find very interesting…:
    Are there keys to a plane? Maybe that’s what those delays are sometimes, when you’re just sitting there at the gate. Maybe the pilot sits up there in the cockpit going, “Oh, I don’t believe this. Dammit..I did it again.” They tell you it’s something mechanical because they don’t want to come on the P.A. system, “Ladies and gentlemen, we’re going to be delayed here on the ground for a while. I uh..Oh, God this is so embarrassing…I, I left the keys to the plane in my apartment. They’re in this big ashtray by the front door. I’m sorry, I’ll run back and get them.”

    This is an amazing amount of candy you are giving away! Thank you so much for offering this to all of us! It looks like you had a wonderful time there! My chuckle for day comes from my son. This morning he informed me he has super powers. When I asked him what super power he has he told me he can turn food into poop! Then he grabs his lego magazine and heads for the bathroom! Yep, and there sat his proud Dad laughing and smiling. I told him that it must come from his side of the family! Christine G.

  • CharlieDK

    Hi there scrapfriend. JUST landed after two wonderful weeks in Provence, France – sun, wine, pool, cheese, friends, fun, guess you’ll get the picture. But NO PC and NO scrap for 14 days – taking about suffering !!!

    But just back I hurry into your blog and see this OMG – this is just soooo cool.

    Let me add this story from our holiday this year – one of the kind that is NOT funny till afterwards. We were a bit busy before going on vacation – but since we have our own house there and have made the trip a lot of times we told each other – “Don’t panic – if we forgot something we can buy it when we’re there” – this is such a good way to wind down from being stressed and always worked. BUT this year I forgot my drivers license… which means DH had to do all the driving in the rented car AND DH forgot the key to our house – well imagine going out to buy a new house while you’re there – not really a good idea is it. We did somehow manage to get a key from the poolman Thank God he had not left for his holidays.
    Panic only lasted a couple of hours – but GEE – it was NOT a nice adventure.

  • Lynn Speight

    What a lot of wonderful candy…
    I’m glad your back I need my inspiration fix…

    Wow, Marlene, this is a fabulous candy! Thanks for a chance to win! I posted the link in my sidebar.

    I don’t know how funny is this, but when I heard about unmounted stamps for the first time, I missread unamounted and thought that it means that those stamps are of a such great quality that they can be used so many times that it cannot be Totally silly, I know, but that’s what I thought. I was totally new to stamps and stamping at the time, though.:)

  • Karmyn (Leah the Orange)

    what seriously FAB candy, Marlene! i’d love to play with some of the goodies there!

    maybe you’ll laugh at this, because i had a good giggle over here, and it’s nearly 1 am and i could have woken the house up…

    the person on whose blog i found you had a bunch of blog candy images linked in her sidebar. as i scrolled down, i came across a picture of a baby girl, and thought to myself “omg, someone’s KID is blog candy?!” because i’m just THAT tired. 😀 luckily, we won’t have to be calling the authorities on her, because it’s just a picture of a cute baby girl, and you can’t win her by becoming a follower and leaving a comment. hee hee.

    okay, i’m off to bed. thanks for the fabulous opportunity at yummy candy! 😀

    Wow Marlene – gorgeous candy. Thanks for the opportunity to be in the running to win it – you are very, very generous.

    Something funny to share: I was in bed the other night and having finished writing my journal, I turned off the light and snuggled on down ready to sleep, when suddenly I felt something small and furry where my feet were. Eek! Fearing it was some sort of caterpillar or spider (or worse!) I leapt out of bed fumbling for the light switch and threw the covers off the bed only to discover one of my 6 yr old DD’s pipe cleaners! The next morning when I asked my DD if she put the pipe cleaner in my bed, she said “Yes, Mummy! I did it to trick you!” Well, I was definitely tricked! Ahh, life is never dull with a 6 yr old Jolly Joker in the house!!

    Thanks for the chance to win your candy. I have been racking my brains trying to remember a good joke or something, but I’ve got nothing sorry…. I hope you get a few chuckles from others.

    How wonderful of you to offer this candy! It’s fabulous!

    My funny was when I’d taken my son to the movies to see “Monsters, Inc” with my sister and brother in law. Now if you’ve seen the movie you know that in one scene the one eyed character Mike Wazowski comes out of the toilet and a piece of toilet paper is trailing behind him as he walks. Well, we’re leaving the movie theater, and I’d stopped at the restroom before exiting and lo and behold….there is toilet paper trailing me as I walk. Of course, my BIL noticed and said it loud enough that a group of teens nearby also caught sight of me and EVERYONE in the parking lot was laughing hysterically!
