A site for my handmade cards, accompanied by my photos and written meanderings which are occasionally witty, often tongue-in-cheek, and rarely profound. Beginning in June 2013, you'll also see lots of NBUS, which is an acronym I coined for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. Feel free to join in, use the acronym, and use up your NBUS too! Thanks for coming by! Have a beverage and enjoy!

You will be rewarded when you visit them not only by the products they offer, but by the special prizes some of them are offering for NBUS participants on their blogs! Go see!

SELECTION OF PRIZES

Because you are all my friends, I could never select one of you over another, so I will use Dr. Random and Mrs. Dot Org to choose the prize winners. They will work throughout the night and day on September 19th. I will notify the sponsors of the winners' names via email on September 19th and then Hammy and I will have a wodka to celebrate another successful challenge thanks to them and to all of you!

On Sunday, September 20, 2015, I will post the names of all the winners and their prizes!

GO!

I can't wait to see the beautiful creations you make and enter below using one or more item of Never-Before-Used Schtuff!!

If you have any questions, please email darnell dot knauss at gmail dot com.

Thank you very much for participating and for being incredible followers and supporters! Your friendship and your cheerleading comments keep me going! Hammy and I appreciate you very much!

Thanks for another NBUS challenge, Darnell ...... and what a fabulous set of prizes! Off to see what NBUS I can find hiding at the back of the cupboard that I can blow the dust off! xx

Suchi said...

Marianne said...

Wow, what an amazing line-up of sponsors and so well-deserved as well, since you are such an inspiration, the way you embrace all crafters and especially the way you make newbies feel welcome in this wonderful crafting community. Cannot wait to play along, Wish I could start right away, but I'm at the hospital for the start of round two for my husband's chemo. So far, he is doing very well, so we're hoping things will continue this way. I hope Kevin's surgery will go well today and that he'll be up and running again (pun intended) in no time thanks to the loving care of his two private nurses.

Jenny L said...

Hi Darnell,

Thank you so much for all your very hard work involved with this

KandA said...

Hi Darnell, thank you so much for inviting us all to come and play in your Playhouse and organising yet another super fun NBUS challenge. What amazing prizes on offer too... a big thank you to all your wonderful sponsors
I hope you've got plenty of coffee and cake to hand as I reckon you're gonna have a very busy 10 days - just don't knock yourself out trying to be superwoman - commenting on every single entry is NOT necessary and you do have the Mister to look after xx

Kylie said...

Carol L said...

WOWSAH!! What a FUN NBUS filled with generous sponsors! I just love watching your list of followers grow to incredible numbers! Well done my friend!

Pat said...

Wow Darnell, thank you for organising this and for inviting us to come join in the fun, which I for one will most certainly be doing, and what an incredible list of prizes and big thanks to you and Jeanne for finding so many wonderful sponsors, but unfortunately it couldn't have come at a more difficult time for you with the mister having his operation today. Hope you have your nurse's uniform hung up and ready to don and sincerely wish him the speediest of recoveries. Take care! x

Marybeth said...

Well, congratulations to you my friend! Look at how big you got, not your dress size, wow! Have fun!

Geez. Look at all those generous sponsors. It's a good thing you have Mr. Random and Ms. Dot-Org to sift through all the entries you're going to have. Hammy and you may go blind looking through them all. This is going to be fun. As a side note for today, sending prayers.

Birgit said...

I don't know why but I feel so intimidated because the cards everyone makes are so beautiful plus it sounds like I need to make 3 before the 20th?? This is an awesome challenge! Look at my fears which I know are wrong.

Sybrina K said...

Darnell, Congratulations on your newest NBUS Challenge! Hope you have lots and lots of entries. :)

Elizabeth S. said...

Throughout the year, I've tried to remmember to pull out a NBUS to use vs. it sitting away on the shelf and always think of you and your challenge in the past when doing so. I think it reminds all of us to pull one out or combine it with a new product plus fun to look at what you have. Your always so generous and supportive! Thank-you Darnell for being so sweet and thoughful.

LesLee said...

Thanks so much for all you do for this NBUS.. I love it.. it really helps get my basket empty... :)

What a FUN challenge, and what a slew of sponsors you have --my word! Your blog and your NBUS challenges are new to me...nice to "meet" you, Darnell! I hope your hubby is starting to feel better since he's got a sweet nurse taking such good care of him. ;) Thanks for giving me the inspiration to dust off some of my unused goodies!

I have posted 2 cards in your challenge but neither one shows up and when I try to do them again, it says the link already exists. I don't know what is going on. Hope you can help. Thanks,
JoAnn

Whoa, this challenge got huge! Thank you so much for hosting Darnell, so many beautiful entries, I can see why you have to use the random guy!

Hi Darnell. I have post number 420 and I FORGOT to say what my NBUS stuff was!!! Egads! The burlap on the front panel was given to me by a friend.It's the first that I've used it. I pulled out some of the strings of burlap to make a bow.
