Happy Monday, everyone!

I have been doing some major purging in the studio this weekend and I had lots of little goodies that were too good to throw away, yet I don't have any need for them.  I stuffed FIVE flat rate priority mail boxes full of Papertrey stamps, project kits leftover from the cruise, ink pads, magazines, idea books and more.  I'd like to find happy homes for all this loot.  You have until noon EST tomorrow (Tuesday, January 19th) to leave a comment here about what your favorite things are about this blog.  I will then randomly select five of you to receive a goodie box (Sorry, U.S. residents only please)

Good luck!

Nichole Heady

    Meghan Spaulding says:

    Its hard to pick just one, but if I really had to choose it would be the previous count down links. I love to go back and get re-acquainted with stamp sets I may have forgotten about for a while. It gives me just the inspiration I need to pull out stamps that haven’t been inked up in a while.

  • 32

  • 35
    Lolita says:

    Your blog to me is inspiration. The little kick I need to get creating. Often I don’t have the same stamps, or paper etc but more often than not an idea, a color combination, a forgotten technique, a layout will clique with me and be the starting point for a project. Inspiration and motivation to be better and reach for the stars. Thanks.

    My favorite thing about your blog design… I would say how organized it is. It is super simple for me to find what I’m looking for – previous countdowns, other cool blogs, PTI designers, etc.
    My favorite thing about your blog content is definitely your cards!!! I can never resist a stamp set when you show samples, the clean but sophisticated style is one I strive for!

    Janis says:

    My favorite posts are the projects…uses for the stamp sets that I wouldn’t think of on my own. Last March, I ordered the Filed with Flair template at the release and had made the Custom Card Set (with sentiment portfolio) and gave it to my mother for her birthday within 12 hours! I just love ideas like that!

    This blog totally ROCKS! I love your daily posts– consistency is what keeps me coming back. There is nothing more disappointing than to find a blog you like only to keep seeing the same ol’ stale/week old post.
    The photos are simply beautiful– I can really see details of any stamp set or technique that you are trying to show. I am new to Papertrey Ink and love everything about your products – and blog.
    Thank you!

    Best things about your blog….Oh my, there is no way I have the time to list them all! Your blog gives me inspiration for tons and tons of projects. I am here almost daily and could sit for days on end just mesmerized at everything!

    Jada says:

    WOW! There really isn’t anything I don’t love about this blog. I absolutely LOVE the countdowns and sneak peeks. There are tons of inspiration here!

  • 131

    My favorite thing about this blog is that it provides me with an opportunity to take a break from the routine tasks of everyday life while also inspiring my creativity. What I always find interesting is that fact that Nichole and the whole Papertrey Team always seem to find the “extraordinary” in everyday, ordinary life as they come up with projects and designs. This inspires me to take a second look at things around me when I am stamping and creating my own projects. For instance, taking a moment to stop and watch the sunset has led me to explore color combinations that I wouldn’t necessarily have thought of before I witnessed a particular sunset. Clearly, whether I am browsing the Papertrey blog or completing routine tasks, creative inspiration is right at my fingertips. Thank you, Nichole and the entire Papertrey team, for inspiring me each and every day to always reach further in my creative pursuits.

    I used to read TONS of blogs through Google Reader but eventually, I deleted some that weren’t my style. Then, I got rid of a few more that I usually just skimmed through and decided to keep only the ones that I really, really thoroughly enjoyed and referred to over and over again. And, guess which ones are still there? All the Papertrey Design Team member blogs, of course!

    I’d use Papertrey supplies anyway, just because of the quality, but thanks for all the great ideas!

I just can’t seem to get enough of PTI. I love how you show us absolutely gorgeous cards with such phenomenal details. And they are easy to duplicate thanks to your explanations and tips. I love the free templates that you have here. love the endless amount of ideas you have for every imaginable occasion. Your step by step tutorials with beautiful pictures make it so easy to learn. Your upbeat and positive attitude just shines through your blog. I always look forward to what you have to say. And of course, last but not least, the countdowns that temp us until the release. It’s the first thing I do in the morning and even sometimes when insomnia sets in, I check your blog to see the latest peek. Nichole, you have set some pretty high standards that many bloggers try to duplicate, but nobody comes close. Not only are you a trend setter in the paper crafting arena, you are a leader and a teacher as well. Thank you for sharing with us all that you do.

I have got to say you and your design team are awesome. When I grow up I want to be just like you guys! (unfortunately, I think I am older that most if not all of you!)

    I think my favorite part of your blog is the team challenge area. I revisit it time and time again when I need a “kick start” to get creating. The layout is so easy to browse. . . I can quickly find a snapshot that speaks to me, then link over to the associated blog for more details. It’s just what I need to get going when I’m in a slump. Thanks for all you do Nicole!

    Maria BF says:

    OMG! Are you kidding me? What isn’t there to love!! There are unlimited ideas on how to use every product available and in ways that you wouldn’t think to use them. PTI has become an internet “destination” for me on a daily basis just to be inspired!

  • 633
    Amy says:

    I have been following your blog (as well as some of your PTI design teams blogs) for a few years now! I love everything! The creative inspiration is amazing! Keep up the great work! I know I will keep reading and be inspired!

  • 634

    I love the clean look of your blog, sometimes blogs can get “cluttered” (like mine!) and it’s distracting. But mostly I love your projects, products and the inspiration you give all of your readers!

    I have always loved what originally drew me to your site and that is the homemade gift ideas. Of course since then I have been visiting for a while I have found a million other fantastic ideas.

  • 637
    ElizabethB says:

    Visiting your blog is like meeting up with the girls at the cafe. To chat and see all of the amazing new goodies every month. Or, like flipping through my much anticipated favorite magazine before I even pull away from the mailbox. Saying ‘thank you’ hardly seems enough for the inspiration and fabulous products to create with.

  • 638
    Deborah says:

    Love the ideas, color combinations, creativity and product information. I especially seeing/reading about the designers … and who could forget the MONTHLY COUNTDOWN! Lots of fun šŸ™‚

    I love how you have the blog organized. I like being able to click on tutorials or click on homemade gifts and search for a project I want to try. Call me crazy – but most of all I like the “Surprise Me” link that takes you to a random page. no matter my reason for visiting, I can’t resist clicking on the surprise button.

    Tabby says:

    Oh a box full of surprises…count me in.

    I enjoy your blog because I like your style of stamping. I also am really enjoying your search button because now I can look at old releases and remember why I bought some of the sets I have..sometimes I just get stumped but can always get a little motivation by looking at your blog.

    Your blog is a little slice of happy!

    Christine McMullin says:

    I love the variety of ideas you present on your blog. I’m amazed by your generousity (the contests, the out right give aways with each release, the freebie templates) – but even if you never ever gave another thing away, I think your blog would continue to be a special place because you create things that are beautiful, but do-able for the average stamper.

  • 653
    Stephanie King says:

    My favorite thing about this blog is probably the posts where you depart from stamping. I really like the countdown posts and the plethora of samples you share, but the non-stamping posts sprinkled here and there are so exciting. Getting a peek into how you set up your craft room or how you dealt with a cramped pantry gives me so many ideas!

  • 654

    I love the excitement you all bring to your work. It must be hard coming up with new ideas all the time, but you do it with style. PaperTrey has some of the best designers going!
