  1. I like blog hops for their structure. I like to see the overlapping of what people do with the same or similar stencils. There isn't anything I don't like about them.

  2. Blog hops are fun - I love them as long as there are not too many blogs to visit! Thanks for asking.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I love blog hops for the ideas and inspiration, meeting new artists and finding new opportunities. Since stencils are indeed my best friends, I plan to hop through to the end :-)

  4. LOVE hops because:
    1. I LOVE having the chance to win!!
    2. I LOVE getting acquainted with new artists and their art forms.
    3. I LOVE learning new ways to use products.

    DON'T LOVE THIS abt some hops:
    1. Too long.
    2. Prize isn't interesting or not worth my time hopping.
    3. Blogs are hard to navigate or there are broken links.
    4. Too many hoops to jump through: must be a follower, pin, like, tweet, etc.
    5. Prefer Captcha over comments that must be okayed by blogger.....because I can at least see if my post was successful with Captcha.

    Thanks for asking!!! And thanks for the chance to win!

  5. I love blog hops because they show you the versatility of using products across artists. I only discovered hops this past year so its like opening a present. What I don't like is when links don't work or when there are too many steps (e.g. go here and here then come back, etc; sometimes they can be too long-- two weeks every day is too long for me). I like to be able to sit with coffee and spend an hour maybe two being inspired.

  6. I love to see new stencils and ways to use them. I have several of Michelle Ward's stencils and would love more of her lovely designs. What I don't like but understand is never winning the giveaway stencils. Sigh!

  7. First, thank you for the chance to win! I love these new stencils! Blog hops are fun - seeing different artists perspective with the same product is really inspiring

    ReplyDelete
  8. I love all your stencils they're amazing, I'm new to all this art journaling & scrapbooking but im learning... LOL... I am not really crazy about blog hopping for a contest, I would rather comment on one blog... I love to learn about all the other blogs & join their blogs as well so I can follow them in their creative journey, but I would rather just enter on one blog.... Your stencils are fabulous! I would love to win.... <3

  10. Normally I don't have a lot of time to visit blogs but during blog hops I can always make time to visit 'just one' and I almost always learn something new.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I like blog hops because I meet artists I may never have found any other way.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love Blog Hops. My favorite part is seeing the versatility of new products. I often buy a product I liked, but didn't think I'd use, after seeing the designers projects.
    Stencil Girl Blog Hops are extra fab as the designers each have their own style. There are quite often videos & new techniques to be learnt too. Theresa x

  13. Blog hops are a great way to come across different artists, techniques and resources. When I have the luxury of time the process is like chatting to like-minded people, widening my creative community. Sometimes a bit tedious when you are requested to tweet, pin and like, although I can understand it's a good way to get peoples names 'out there'. If the list is long I sometimes run out of steam/interest. Of course the lottery element of 'winning' adds to the thrill!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I like the blog hop to see the different talented works of art.

    I visit the blogs to see the work not for the gift. This is like going to the casino and playing the slot machine or the lottery.

    However, leaving a comment on all the blogs is time consuming and not easy. Each blog has a different process and validation which is extremely frustrating. I usually do not leave a comment because of the steps required to leave a comments.

    As i stated in the beginning, I love seeing the creativity.

  15. Hola, estoy encantada de ver todos los trabajos tan maravillosos que se pueden realizar con las plantillas, a través del blog hop ofrecéis muchas versiones de una misma plantilla, me gusta cómo despierta mi creatividad. Sois muy generosas por compartirlos. Muchas gracias. Feliz día.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Fairly new to stencils, and learning new ideas. Awesome designs by Michelle! This is the 2nd blog hop of yours that I've followed. Hops can be a bit time consuming, esp. when my computer loads SLOW, but I LOVE all the inspiration I get too :) Thanks so much for a chance to win!

  17. I love blog hops especially when everyone uses the same product! Great ideas and shows everyone's imagination... TFS..

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love blog hops. When I first started crafting I wasted a lot of money on products that looked good, but that I didn't use. Blog hops help me to get the most bang for my buck, by helping me choose the right products for my style & to get as much use out of them as possible.

    ReplyDelete
  19. What I love about blog hops is that I get introduced to new artists that I might not have found otherwise, as well as getting to catch up with some faves. However, I usually find the list of artists too long, simply because it's challenging to find the time and space to follow a hop for that long -- life just gets in the way at some point.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Blog hops are such a fun way to "meet" new artists!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I like blog hops, its interesting to see how different each artist is

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love Blog hops. Always find something new or something that intrigues me.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I like blog hops because they give me lots of different ideas as to how to use new tools/equipment.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I enjoy them because I get to see how others create and I don't like them because sometimes I get mixed up for the order and not always sure if I have done a Hop to a certain one LOL totally my own fault.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I like blog hops because they take to me to sites and introduce me to artists that I might not be aware of. The only thing I don't like is that many times I can't take the time to get all the way through the list or I lose my place along the way. But I do love them and the diverse ideas they present.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Delighted to be a part of this blog hop! Michelle's new stencils are fabulous!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Congratulations, Michelle! Great new additions to the line.
    I enjoy the diversity of ideas I see on blog hops. Each artist adds a new dimension to the flat Mylar, bringing it to 3D life.
    My only frustration is that I sometimes experience difficulties posting the comments, usually because of browser compatibility issues.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love bloghops because they are inspiring and usually introduce me to someone I did not know of. I don't like them because I don't always have the time I want to explore and play. Working gets in the way.

  30. I enjoy the hops because you see so many different ideas and techniques. You also find new companies and designers that you might not have heard of before and had no way of finding on your own. My complaint is when there is a prize offered for doing the hop, they say the winner will be announced on ........ I go back to the site on that day and the day after and the day......... and it may take weeks before they finally announce who won. I love winning prizes. I'd really like to win some of these stencils. My plan is to start doing stenciling - just have to buckle down and get started. thanks for the chance to win.

  31. I really like the new stencils!! can't wait to see how I am going to be inspired! Off to hop!!

  32. Thanks for showing all the new yummy stencils. I like abstract.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love blog hops for the inspiration from other others and finding new blogs that I want to follow.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love blog hops because I always find new blogs to follow and there's always so much inspiration. I love the new stencils.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love blog hops because there is wonderful opportunity to be introduced to something or someone new to me. I don't like them because I have limited data usage and I feel rushed to try to get through it, which is not the problem of the blog host at all. Blog hops can be an inspirational and fun experience.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Blog hops, for me, are like going to a museum to see wonderful works of art. Every artist has a unique way of making art come to life. I probably spend way too much time on them, but it is the "me" time that gives me the inspiration to make my own art. Thank you for sharing all these artists' talents.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm never really sure that I am entered correctly. Also, Does the order in which I view the hop matter?

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love seeing what people are doing.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I like seeing all the different ways that the stencils are used. This one was really great.

  40. I LOVE the blog hops! They are so inspiring and fun. Thank you to everyone who offers their posts!

  41. I like blog hops because not only do you get the chance to win a prize but also I'm introduced to new blogs.

  43. I can think of lots of ways to use these new stencils. Thanks for posting the blog hop. Never heard of that before.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love all the wonderful tutorials on the blog hops. Do not like the fact I never win anything and do not like having to read the numbers, etc to prove I am not a robot. Not even a robot could read these words/letters. Love these new stencils.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I have a love/hate relationship with blog hops. I love being able to see a product used in different ways and love "meeting" new artists. I love the opportunity to possibly win a prize I'm interested in. I really dislike that some blog hops involve too many hops, posts aren't up when they are supposed to be and broken links. I also dislike when prizes are given and winners not announced on the day stated for the announcement. I also dislike hops that involve having to jump though hoops to enter a drawing...a comment should be enough and not all the like this and pin that.

    I LOVE all of Michele's stencils and I'm keeping my finger crossed that the gift gods will smile upon me this one time...thanks for the opportunity and for the great gift package!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I LOVE blog hops. They give me inspiration, showing me innovative ways to use stencils. I get to see new products, and meet clever bloggers. They are always FUN.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I hate them because of the time factor, but I do like gathering inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I really enjoy seeing the creativity of the artists - how one product can be interpreted in so many different ways. I also love getting to know new artists I might never have been exposed to otherwise. I've bookmarked many sites from my hopping to revisit. On the flip side, I'd prefer if the winners were announced to everyone (not just the lucky individuals) to close out the hop.

    ReplyDelete
  49. What I find fascinating is how a group of artists can take the same basic materials and each one can create something unique! Seeing each one's style come to life is so inspiring, and makes me want to get out all my art supplies to play along!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Looking forward to all the great inspirations that come from a great group of artists!

    ReplyDelete
  51. can't think of anything i don't like about hops... unless they get complicated to follow. but i really enjoy them! thanks for the new stencils, and to everyone for playing in the hop, too! xo {love my stencils - always n forever!}

    ReplyDelete
  52. Bog hops are a fun way to focus and direct my web surfing. Love seeing the variety and creativity of the individual artists--and the giveaways are a bonus:)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Blog hops are great - I just run out of time and rarely get to all of the blogs! Very cool new stencils!

    ReplyDelete
  54. It is nice to see how different bloggers use the stencil (product) . If it is a give away then just give it away. One chance and forget all the hoops, skips and jumps! Time clicking okay is time away from doing it!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love the hops because it takes me places and shows me things I never would have found on my own.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I really like the blog hops because it has introduced me to so many wonderful artists I have not known before. I love to see what can e done with all the great Stencil Girl stencils. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  57. i like to look at all the projects on blog hops, but most include too many blogs. i only have time for 4-6, depending on the length of the blogs. i like the blogs that give step-by-step instructions so i can learn while enjoying the art.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love the blog hops, they take time, but it really is like a virtual field trip to the studios of all these wonderful mixed media artists!! My poor wallet, I think I'm going to order both sets!!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I enjoy the blog hops! See many different ideas for mixed media. I just wish I would win sometime!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Although I enjoy blog hops (in order to see what other artists create), sometimes there are just too many blogs to stop at. I love Michelle's stencils!

  63. I love seeing what others create with the stencils, but sometimes it has so many participants spread over so many days

  65. what I love about blog hopping is all the new artists you get to tour
    what I hate is I get lost in them before I finish the blog hop - so much to see.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I love hopping with you gals and most others;as I get to check out the Art of others and sometimes pick-up on new techniques and definitely for the inspiration!!
    Hugs and thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I like to see everything on the blogs, but if I have to comment on each one, I get confused and forget where I've been or left comments already, so I have to keep notes!

  68. I really enjoy seeing what everyone creates on blog hops.

  73. I have a love/don't-love relationship with blog hops.

    LOVE:
    - seeing the different interpretations of the same product from one artist to the next
    - being introduced to an artist I might never have discovered on my own
    - the anticipation that I might be the winner

    DON'T LOVE:
    - broken links or post not up when scheduled
    - being told to tweet this, pin that AND comment, too!
    - late announcement of winner

    I know it's called a blog hop and that's what we have to do, but wouldn't it be great if all the featured artists were on the host's blog in separate posts so they could be commented on separately?

    ReplyDelete
  74. A person could really get in the zone with these stencils!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Love blog hops because it gives a chance to see multiple artists' spin on the same materials. It's awe-inspiring and inspires creativity in us all.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I love to see what creative people are doing with the stencils. It's fun to see what each one does with the same stencil. It's amazing to see where they go.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I understand the hops, but I'll admit I'm not too into them. Many times I feel like I can't totally believe what the blogger has to say about the product because they're getting free advertising out of it. I like seeing different takes on usage, but after a while the ideas start to repeat themselves. That said...love the stencils!
