What a weekend!

Okay, so I had my little pity party on Friday night. Hey, everyone is allowed one once in a while. But, I'm over it. And, how could I not be? I had a pretty fabulous weekend! Rather, more of a LUCKY weekend. First off, I won some of the fabulous new Halloween line from Making Memories. It's called Spellbound, and it's fabulous! Definitely my favorite Halloween line this time around! In case you missed it, take a peek...

Good stuff, right? So, after I got over the high of winning that, I went to check my Bloglines. Lo and behold, I won Lisa Garay's yummy "Rainbowliscious" RAK. Thanks, Lisa! And, as if that wasn't enough, I scored a Fiskar's prize pack from 2Peas! Talk about luck! And, they couldn't have gone to a more grateful girl. Seriously. With the price of, well, EVERYTHING skyrocketing lately, the crafty budget was the first thing to get nixed off the spending list. I haven't bought scrapbooking or craft supplies in I don't know how long. Months. So, I truly am grateful. Unfortunately, my luck doesn't extend beyond winning scrappy supplies and purses because we didn't score a single number right on Saturday's Powerball.

Don't go yet! There's more good news! I received an e-mail last week from the amazingly talented Heather Bailey requesting to use one of my projects to advertise her new paper-crafting line for Autumn Leaves! Of course! Did she have to ask? Tee hee! You can find Sake's mini-book from last month's Label Tulip kit on Heather's new paper-crafting site here. And, be sure to check out her brand new shop! Lots of fun sewing patterns, fabric, paper crafting goodies, and her famous trash ties!

And, to end on another good note, I have been asked to guest design for Lotus Paperie" for the month of August. So honored to have been asked...thanks Vanessa! Check back there on August 1st to kick off a month full of challenges!

Hope everyone's week is off to a great start. If you were lucky enough to go to CHA, I want to hear all about it! And, I promise to keep my jealousy to a minimum. ;0) I'll be back in the next couple of days with some fun projects that I have been working on!
