You have knocked our socks off with your inspiring creativity and sweet blog posts!
We want to sincerely thank you for playing with us each week and inviting us to your blogs.  Its an absolute treat getting to know you!

Speaking of treats, we have a real treat for you this week! A tasty challenge and a fabulous sponsor who is offering a delicious prize!

“PSA what?”
Nope -we aren’t a Public Service Announcement.
We are PSA Essentials. The “P” stands for paper, “S” stands for stamps, and the “A” stands for accessories.   Since we opened in 2002, we’ve gotten the attention of a lot of people and national publications!
We manufacture self-inking custom stamps. We have a variety of styles and ways to personalize.  The stamp comes ready to go, with black ink already assembled so you can start stamping right away.  NO assembly required!
Custom stamps are great for stamping your correspondence –no more writing your address dozens of times!
We have patent-pending PEEL & STICK® technology. Peel away your inner or outer ring and stick on a new one for added customization and design. Think of it as “switchable middles!”
PSA have over 100 Peel & Stick® designs! One for each holiday and lots others.
PSA Essentials also has licenses with Hello Kitty, Peanuts, Maxine, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Smirk, U.B.U., Greek & Collegiate, and more are coming!
For project ideas, visit our blog at for great ways to use PSA Essentials Peel & Stick® stamps!

I wouldn't be surprised if we all gained a few pounds this week. Everyone was tooooo good at making the sweets real and scrumptious. Way too tempting. ;)
