Hello Kitty!

These are my favorite Kitty Addie photos from yesterday …

My nice camera lens got sand in it back in April (yes, April!) and I really need to get it fixed, because I’m not getting the quality (lots of fuzzy) photos, I want to get. I think my Halloween pictures will finally get me to the shop to arrange a repair!

But seriously, could she be any more adorable?

Speaking of Hello Kitty, I was a HUGE Hello Kitty fan. They used to have stores in malls and my friends and I could blow an entire babysitting wad on packs of mini-pencils and rolls of stickers (a hint of things to come!) I was recently given a BIG box of fun Hello Kitty scrapbooking products to review and share. These are brand new designs that will be available in Michaels stores this fall (perhaps even now?!)

Hello Kitty Box #1

Hello Kitty Box #2

Anyway, since I’m announcing the WINNER of the Sn@p! product for our BPC 12/12/12 event, I thought I’d also giveaway these two boxes of Hello Kitty goodies …

WINNER: Carmel, who said: Ha Ha – love the price of the class Stacey … $20.12 You are such a hoot!- and I adore Addies socks.

I am a hoot, I agree … but I have to give credit where credit is due. Angie Lucas came up with $20.12 and I thought it was genius too. Congrats Carmel! I’ve sent you an email, so that I can get these products on their way to you and you can begin your Yearbook in a Snap! preparations.

If YOU would love and use a box of Hello Kitty.
Leave me a comment and I will post a winner on Monday with my next round of Happy Mail!


  1. I don’t know that I’d use all of that Hello Kitty goodness, but I have a crafty 12-year old who would freak out if she won such treasures! :-)

    Miss Addie is a. dor. a. ble. Love her and you, Miss Stacy. Keep up the great work!!

  2. What a cute kitty! My daughter who just turned 6 would be over the moon if she saw me using that Hello Kitty stash!

  3. I am not necessarily a fan but my daughter-in-law LOVES Hello Kitty. In fact, she had a vinyl sticker on the back window of their van for a while but my son got teased mercilessly about it so she took pity on him and took it off.
    Your Addie pictures turned out so cute!

  4. Jennifer C. says:

    I have three girls, ages 9,5, & 3. All four of us love Hello Kitty! We buy everything from pj’s to socks to coloring books & crayons, and the list goes on! Each of my girls are just as crafty as their mother (of course so are the men in my life, they just don’t care as much about Hello Kitty)! Those kits look like so much fun with plenty for us to share in our next crafting togetherness that we try to do at least once a week. We would all be grateful for them, and are very grateful for the opportunity to win them! Thanks Stacy!

  5. Oh, oh, oh…I loooove Hello Kitty!! :)))

    Thanks for a great giveaway!

  6. Marina D-K says:

    My dd was hello kitty for Halloween! She just loves the stuff. We would be so excited for one of these boxes. Thanks for the chance!

  7. I have a sweet princess here who adores Hello Kitty.

  8. kitty Addie is just so cute! The Hello Kitty stuff looks so nice too!!!

  9. I would love to use the Hello Kitty box of goodies for my almost 6 year old nieces album. Thanks for the chance :)

  10. How cute are those products? I have a feeling I could do some great pages from my childhood and now for my Hello Kitty-loving 4-year-old! And I just know they’d push up my page count for Twelve (best class ever, and I’m not just saying that because it’s your blog!).

  11. I have 4 beautiful granddaughters and they would love to use your stash when they scrapbook with me! Thanks so much for sharing.

  12. Jenny Gilbert says:

    I love the new Hello Kitty products! I can think of all kinds of uses for these. Each of the girls in my family has gone through a Hello Kitty/Sanrio stage at some point and these would be perfect to scrapbook those photos (not to mention writing and sharing cute happy mail).

  13. I too LOVED going to the Hello Kitty store when I was growing up. Some of my best childhood memories include my little sister taking a big bite out of my new bubblegum scented Hello Kitty eraser and using my multi-compartment pencil boxes. Now I have 4 daughters of my own! We’d LOVE some Hello Kitty happy mail! :) And YES, Addy *is* the cutest kitty ever!

  14. What a cute collection of stuff.

  15. My niece is absolutely crazy about Hello Kitty and she’d be thrilled to get some of those so I hope I’ll get a bit lucky for her.

  16. I love your little kitty!! She is so adorable!!

    I also have 3 girls (and secretly, myself, too!) who would LOVE to use all that Hello Kitty goodness!!

  17. Hello!
    That Hello kitty line is super cute. I am about 3 years behind on my albums. This cuteness whispers “start with today”- my youngest loves hello kitty and friends.
    thanks for sharing.

  18. What!? I remember those stores and the mini pencils…I did the same thing! What fun – and now my 5 year old daughter is into Hello Kitty and actually wears this one dress 3 times a week. Could so see her pictures with these fun products!

  19. Hello Kitty is so timeless! I used to hoard HK stationary back in the days. I love that she’s still around!
    And yes get your nice lens fixed. You’re going to need it in Hawaii! Looking forward to 12/12/12 at Home!

  20. Addie is an adorable kitty! You couldn’t find a better costume for her!
    I love all cats including Hello Kitty. She is my FB friend LOL
    My daughter didn’t care for her before but now when she is a teenager she changed her mind. She even was Hello Kitty for Halloween last year.
    The new products look so much fun, I know I will be buying some!

  21. Your little kitty is adorable! My girls and I love “Hello kitty” and would have a blast creating!

  22. I send cards each week for Send Love Today (http://sendlovetoday.org/), an organization that sends homemade cards to people (mostly children) with brain cancer. I know quite a few of the girls would LOVE some Hello Kitty cards!!

  23. Could Kitty Addie be any cuter! Especially like the pout photo.

  24. OMG- so cute! All of it! Especially Addie. And if I win, I PROMISE to split the loot with my own My Little Kitty fanatic – my Gracie, who is seven and was a “snow princess” for Halloween.

  25. Addie’s just too cute!! My daughter and I (yes, me!!!) LOVE Hello Kitty! We’d love to have a box. We’re looking forward to the new products @ Michaels!! Woo-hoo!!

  26. I would LOVE the Hello Kitty goodies……..but my DD would be the one to love AND use them……she’s just started a smashbook!

  27. That is one CUTE kitty cat you have there! Love how you work with themes….
    My little kitty just turned 17, but still loves Hello Kitty!

  28. Have loved Hello Kitty since my girls were young and now have a granddaughter tovshare the love with. This box for a grandma play date.

  29. Linda Smith says:

    My granddaughter loves Hello Kitty, and is just now getting into scrapbooking-yay!

  30. Huge Hello Kitty fan here too….. love her to pieces :) Thanks for the opportunity!

  31. Addie is so cute! My granddaughter loves Hello Kitty. She loves crafting and we would have so much fun using one of these kits. Thanks for the chance to win.

  32. OMG that Hello Kitty stuff is awesome! My daughter is a fanatic and would love this! Can’t wait to see it in the stores. Not to mention the memories it brings back from my childhood. Thanks for the giveaway! My daughter was also a cat this year for the 3 year in a row!!

  33. Cindy McDannol says:

    I made a Hello Kitty Halloween costurme for my “step great niece” . She adores Hello Kitty. I have her Library of Memories albums for the last 4 years (she is 6 now) and she loves to come to my house and sit and go through them over and over.

    Being such a Hello Kitty fan, she would love to see these in her album. Thanks for the chance to win and alerting me to the possibility of more scrapbook “stuff”.

  34. I’m 45 & used to walk to the Hallmark store & spend my babysitting money too on all the Hello Kitty goodies I could find! I had it all!! I agree, big future indicator of my lifelong love of paper, pens, stickers, & stamps!! Is it wrong that I want to use all of those adorable goodies in my own Smash Books?! I’ll be stalking my Michael’s for sure looking for their arrival.

  35. My daughters used to love Hello Kitty and now I have two granddaughters that love that Kitty! Lots of great ideas for an album swirling in my head.

  36. angela g a says:

    My own little girl & I would love to do some Hello Kitty projects, thanks for the giveaway!

  44. Wow – I love the Hello Kitty scrapbook stuff! I wouldn’t expect to go for it – but it’s really cute! I like that it looks a bit “vintage Kitty” – similar to the Hello Kitty stuff I used to buy when I was a kid. Would love to win some!

  45. Roseann Hoyle says:

    Love Addie-she makes a really cute kitten. I saw the Hello Kitty products in Michaels this week, and thought what a great gift idea for my granddaughter. She would love it!

  48. I adore Hello Kitty! I used to blow my money on stationary type stuff featuring my newest face but Hello Kitty will always be my first favorite.

    My 10 year old daughter has a Hello Kitty backpack and a scrapbook set and she would love to see me using this adorable set!

  49. I fully blame Hello Kitty for my love of stationery and paper products! That was one of my favorite places to visit at the mall, and even now, in my mid-thirties, it is hard to pass up Hello Kitty stuff.

    Do I know what I’d do with it? Nope. But I’m sure I could find something. ;)

  50. I would love to win this but my nine-year old daughter would be OVER THE MOON. She has started to scrapbook with me and would be beyond thrilled to work with all this product that has HELLO KITTY…hello, if you are nine, that is like heaven.

  51. I have the BEST memories of the Hello Kitty store. When we moved to Co. I found a set of the small pencils I bought in 6th grade! Remember the prizes they taped on the bag of stuff you bought? THE BEST EVER!

  52. jane rogers says:

    Hi – wow gotta love Hello Kitty…is that washi tape ???


  53. She looks so cute! I LOVE Hello Kitty!

  54. I have been hoarding the last few pieces of my Hello Kitty stationary from childhood. Perhaps it is time to send it out and start hoarding this!

  55. Hi,

  56. Sweet, sweet pictures. :) I adore Hello Kitty, as does my 9 year old. We’d be thrilled to win.

  57. I love Hello Kitty! I also spent too much money on Hello Kitty merchandise and remember the stores well. I would love to win this, as my 8 year old daughter just told me she wants to start scrapbooking like me (joy!!) and I want to get her some fun supplies she would love.


  58. This couldnt come at a more appropriate time!! My granddaughters birthday is Monday and her party this weekend is “HELLO KITTY” yeah!!!!!!!!!! thanks for the chance, if I dont win guess i will be hitting up Michaels~

  60. Hailey Mann says:

    Omg this is awesome!!! I see mini book making with my daughter!

  61. Stephanie G. says:

    It’s almost embarrassing how much I love Hello Kitty. I think it’s because she reminds me if my childhood. She’s right up there with Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears!

  62. i remember all too well the san rio stores in the mall!!! my 6 year old niece LOVES hello kitty!

  63. I’m on my second generation of Hello Kitty! (Guess I’m telling my age, hmm?) :) My daughters loved her and now my granddaughters love her. My youngest went as “Hello Kitty” for Halloween and was quite adorable. :) Would love to do mother-daughter / then and now scrapbook pages with Hello Kitty for them all!

  64. Cheryl S. says:

  69. Melinda T says:

    I’m not a big Hello Kitty fan, but my daughter is! She would be over the moon if I won!

  70. Hello Kitty has come a long way. I remember saving to buy things at the local store. My cousins, sisters and I would trade the stickers and when you were “best friends” with someone, you’d let them use your hello kitty box or pencils or pens at school.
    Ah, memories.

  71. Beth Anne says:

    Anything Kitty is wonderful!

  72. Leticia Vasquez says:

  74. For the love of Hello Kitty! My sweet daughter is spending her first year away at college. Her entire dorm room and bathroom has been decorated in Hello Kitty. She spent a week with her cousins at Grandma and Grandpa’s annual quilt camp making a Hello Kitty quilt. I think she would adore these Hello Kitty scrapbook goodies to record all her memories of cousins, grandparents and college. Oh, to be young again and decorate with Hello Kitty!

  75. Mamasue123 says:

    Hello Kitty, got to love it. My daughter used to hoard anything Hello Kitty, she still has pencils in her desk …. used down to the nub but won’t throw them away!

  76. I LOVE Hello Kitty! I have been a fan since around 1979 & still have some of that vintage stuff!

  77. I would love Hello Kitty goodies! My almost 2 year old and my 3 year old girls are obsessed with anything Hello Kitty, from shoes to costumes to books to stickers.

  78. Jennifer C. says:

    How fun are these! I remember saving up my money & spending every dime in the Hello Kitty store, too! I have a teeneager who thinks Hello Kitty is the coolest & would love to scrapbook her with these goodies.

  79. I am a bigger fan of Hello Kitty then my 7 yr old daughter, lol. Can’t resist the charm of a mouthless kitty.

  80. I would love love love the Hello Kitty supplies. As would my daughter. I have spoken to her about starting a scrapbook, and this would be a wonderful way for her to use one of her favourite things to do it.

  81. Susan Romick says:

    Hello Kitty! What a purrrrrrrrfect idea. But wait, no fake fur ball or kitty litter to go with it? Maybe use some sand paper for the background. That would be a great add. Although rumor has it that Hello Kitty doesn’t use Kitty Litter!
    Hello Kitty a favorite of my girls and now my grandgirls. Always in style.
    Can’t wait to get this paper line.
    Addie is always adorable.

  82. marsha j. says:

  85. Oh how I love that cute Hello Kitty! My daughter had a Hello Kitty birthday party a few years ago and they have such cute, fun, colorful items! Great give away Stacy…thanks!

  86. As the only girl in my house, (including the cat!,) I’d love to have some girly scrap supplies. I could use them on my “YOU(me)” pages and my “(girl)FRIENDS” pages for TWELVE. I’d probably also split it with my scrappy friend whose daughter was a HUGE HK fan back in jr high! You know…pay it forward, spread the kitty love! Thanks for the chance!
    -Rhonda (mom2h)

  87. Hello Kitty hasn’t been that big here in the Netherands, until lately.
    But it’s mostly kid stuff in toy stores.
    I’d love to work with even a bit if that Hello Kitty stuff for a gift album for my friend, who is well in her 40′s, looks like she’s still 19 and has loved HK before she became known here.

    Thanks for the chance!

  88. Thanks for the awesome give away. Would love to pull some older pictures of my now 13 year old daughter and remember when she was not too cool for Hello Kitty!

  89. Ohhhhh, how I remember using babysitting money at our store! It was called The Friendship Station. :-) Thanks for that long lost memory. Jenny

  92. Since living in Japan in 1980 I have been in love with Hello Kitty–and now my Granddaughter loves Hello Kitty also! Since she lives in Washington and I am in Northern California I would love to win and write her letters and send her cards with all of this:)

  93. Sheryl Coe says:

    I would LOVE some Hello Kitty! I also loved the HK store as a kid, and have passed the love of that, along with my love of paper crafts, to my six year old. As much as it would kill me, I’d put this away until Christmas and make her the happiest almost-seven-year-old on the block!

  94. Not sure if I made it in time for the giveaway deadline, but in any case also wanted to say that Addie looks absolutely ADORABLE as a kitty! Oh my goodness, she is just SO cute.

  95. Crystal M. says:

    I’m not sure if I made the deadline for this fab giveaway….
    I’ve loved Hello Kitty since I was a kid and was so excited to hear that Michael’s has a line. I passed my love for HK on to my 3 year old daughter. We would love to win these goodies! Thank you for the opportunity!
