My First Blog Candy!

So you want to make your own Bamboo purse? Here are the two main ingredients needed. Yes, both the tile mat and purse liner could be yours if your name/number is called.

How do I win you wonder? It is simple!
Just add my Artistic Extras Blog link to your blog and leave a comment telling me where to see it.

Don't have a blog? Just leave a comment about my purse and promise to share my blog with at least 3 of you best artist friends.

Seeing as my blog is so new I will use a random generator to pick the winner on (or about) August 15th!


  1. You know I want it! You are on my blog!


  2. I've got you on my blog list Cindy! I've also mentioned your blog candy in my post today. Thanks for having me on your list!

  27. Hello Cindy! I am so glad you are starting to blog! You are one brave woman! I have a girlfriend who is after me, but I am afraid of the daily commitment. I will continue to be a stalker. Since I don't have a blog, I can't expose your blog but I will share with friends. Where do you get the bamboo mats that you use for your purses? I know you used to carry them in your store, but I am unsure where to go for them now.
