You will love the magazine girls! All you have to do , is email me your address, so that I can pass it on to Cindy Wycoff (SD owner/editor), and she will get them mailed out to each of you.
HUGE thanks to Cindy for making this giveaway possible!


I thought I'd share some of the fun things that came in the mail this week.

My dear friend Catherine sent this adorable card and incredible piece of art to me. Cat and I met years ago when when we were on the ScrapMuse Design Team together. I have been in awe of this girls talent ever since. Not to mention... SO... thankful for her friendship. Love ya Kitty! I treasure every piece of art you've ever given me!

Catherine is the Author of these two incredible books.

And... remember a while back when when I was talking with you about "Pass it on"? Well these are just some of the goodies I got from Denise Lynn. Oh.... I love vintage cards... and these are all so fun! Thanks so much Denise!!!

And my new friend Cathy from Radid City South Dakota , sent these treasures. Cathy... I swear I'm coming to teach at your store someday. I love the Black Hills! Our Aunt and Uncle used to own a cabin there, and almost every summer as we were growning up , we went there for vacation. Even after I had children of my own ... we did the same thing. I have so many great memories of SD. Dan and I keep talking about how we need to go back. You might find me on your doorstep yet! lol Thankyou Cathy!!!

Talk about a fun mail week!

Okay... go enjoy the first day of "2008"!!!

If you are coming to SD, you might as well pop over the border and take some photos of K and N and do some of my scrapbooking for me... Nah, bad idea ~ they'd spy the difference in your fancy stuff versus my "oops, oh well, this will have to do" methods! LOL! Happy New Year!
