A giveaway!

Yesterday I ran errands as I usually do after a hectic weekend of homework. I went shopping at Target and happened upon the office supply section in which I found printed paper tape...What is that you may ask? Another thing to add to a lot of already accumulating scrappy stuff. They sell them in sets of 4 in 4 select colors and I am finding out not all locations have them and many locations do not have the orange set. So not many of you had the chance to get it, many of you might live overseas and do not have a Target. So today I made a special trip and purchased the Orange/Yellow set of 4 rolls of the printed paper tape. I have already made a project with mine and found that it does not have a sticky residue and worked wonderful for $1.00 for a gracious sized roll! Here is the deal...I have never held a give away here at the Many Adventures of Bran so I figure this would be a great way to get to know some of you. I have one set of orange that has 4 rolls in it that I am giving away to one lucky person. Leave a comment by Saturday @11:59pm EST. I will then choose a lucky winner. In the comment let me know what it is about yellow/orange that inspires you.

I have loved orange for my whole life, I love how it makes me feel, creative and vibrant. I love the colors of Oranges which I cannot have as my body turns it into pure acid which we found out at 6 months old. Orange is the color of creativity, it is also the color I see in happiness. I love all of its hues and how the sunset all over the United States has shown me its glorious marvels. In Idaho, it shimmers like amber sand, in Utah it glimmers like orange topaz in the mountains, in Washington, D.C. if creates a noble glow on the monuments, in Florida it is like liquid golden amber on the ocean, in everywhere I have gone the orange in the sunset highlights beauty that cannot be seen at any other time and is often taken for granted. That is how I am inspired by orange now it is your turn.

Here is the picture showing the orange printed paper tape. Remember you have until Saturday @11:59pm EST.

  1. I've almost always loved Orange. I remember not liking it when I was very little then I went on a road trip with my slightly older cousin and we were coloring in my grandparent's rv... and she started coloring a barbie dress orange. And I discovered that I loved it.... and I've liked it ever since... and then for many years it was my eleven year old's favorite color (now it's purple)... he dressed in orange a lot - it's a flattering color for him, so it always makes me think of him.

  2. Wow that is cool tape. I live in the tropics and our weather and orange just seem to go together. I have loved it for an age as a colour and wish I could wear it but it does nothing for me!

  6. What a thoughtful thing to do! The tapes are so pretty! I didn't like orange as much when I was younger and either did my little sister. As we got older we got more into color and less into wearing and wanting all black everything (haa!) and I really like the color orange now! And my little sister absolutely loves it! I think I like it in terms of papercrafts because it's cheerful and festive - and it also works for boys as well as girls. Thanks for your kindness Brandy!

  16. Oh, I love Target and these tapes are gorgeous! I like the Orange/yellow color family because of the warmth and also the reminder of a fresh vibrant start. Kinda of like a nice tall glass of orange juice in the morning as the warm sun comes up- the perfect mix of colors and feelings! Again, thanks so much for sharing!

  20. The smell of oranges reminds me of two things- working night shifts as a student nurse, and satsumas at Christmas time. I love the colour- it is vibrant, happy and fresh. Thank you for the chance to enter the giveaway.
