So Happy feeling warm and fuzzy inside

Well of course CHA was a BLAST. I always walk away with such a happy and uplifted feeling. I am so inspired in so many ways...creatively for one and for two, I am emotionally charged and inspired to move forward and focus on all the good that lies ahead.


At CHA, for those of you who haven't heard, I was Quickutz's lucky grand prize winner. I won the brand new Silhouette. This is of course is outstanding and I feel so very fortunate ! Thank you QK !!!



In other news, Jenn and I started a new blog called Scrap it Forward. It is based on "paying it forward" to our fellow man and being crafty while doing it! We of course wanted to combine 2 things that we are very passionate about..crafting and charity/community activeness. So...we found a way! You should definitely check us out! There are crafty challenges posted as well as prompts suggesting ways to "pay it forward".


CHA was so very inspiring and I am so touched that during these tough financial times, that there were still so many companies willing to sponsor us and commit to working on future projects with us. I am so thrilled and excited about it all ! Not to mention the fact that I have so many friends behind us on this. Illyse is desinging for us and we have a whole crew of followers already! Thank you so very much. This means the world to me !

Now I need to organize it all ! My house looks like some kind of "crafty bomb" went off in it! Back in awhile with more updates !
