OMG! I am a winner!! Can I get a WHOOP WHOOP?!

OH YEAH! Doin' the Happy Dance [visualize as you dare].

My first winning entry for The Angel Company monthly contest! This one was for the Symbol of the Season contest. I now get to pick out a bunch of free stamps ($75 worth)... how will I choose? I am so excited! I've entered several times with no reward, so this is a welcome change! I am definitely going to start entering more often! You just never know...

Please leave a comment if you would like the list of products used for this card!

Now on to highlights from the 2008 Winter Round Up in Salina... Heather, Lori, JoAnn, and Avis put on a great event! Wendy, Judy and I had a great time! Great projects, met some wonderful Angels, didn't get enough sleep... it was all fun! I plan on teaching a few of the projects in my upcoming Hostess Club / Class nights, so be on the lookout! Here is the Prop Swap item that I made to trade:

It is an altered wooden heart w/ hanger. I used Pop Rockz paper & tags, green Bazzill cardstock, Palette inks, DoodleBug button, a safety pin and misc. ribbons. I think it turned out pretty well. Julie Griffith was the recipient at the Round Up... hope you enjoy it, Julie!

I'll be posting some more exciting news within the next couple days! Let's just say it will be a DOUBLE-duty post!


I know, I know...

I suck.

No photos, no posting, no anything. In my defense:

1. I still do not have a working scanner. Evidently, the one I have is not compatible with the new Windows Vista [of course] so now I have to buy a new one. Bastards. It's not even that old.

2. Yes, I will have to suck it up and start using my camera until I get a new scanner. What bites is the fact that when I zoom in close to a detail, it wigs out and won't focus. I just got this camera last year and it wasn't a cheap one! I really don't want to have two cameras, so now I have to do more research on that subject.

3. Nothing extremely exciting is going on right now. Just more of the same craziness:
  • A. I was busy getting my trades and projects done for the 2008 Winter RoundUp in Salina [I leave tomorrow for that... yeay!].
  • B. Teaching my classes/hostess nights.
  • C. I only did a couple of cards for the Paper Wings Design Team [Wingers] this month [I really need to start stepping it up there!]
  • D. I've got a Gardner Stamp Club meeting tonight where I am one of the ladies doing a make-n-take. I'll be doing the color pencil with mineral oil blending again... I just love the look of it. I created a nice 'spring-y' design since I am sooooooooooo ready for it.
  • E. I've been totally freezing my hiney off [I like the word 'hiney'... it makes it sound small... hee hee].
  • F. Had a lovely time at the Potentate's Ball for the Abdallah Shriners. Poot and I were on the Ball Committee, so it was a VERY busy day... but the decor and everything turned out great! We have been asked to serve on the next one, too.

I'll be going to the Topeka 'Oh Scrappy Day' crop with my friend Cindy on March 1st, so I'll need to start doing a little pre-planning for pages... only so I don't end up taking two rolling carts & shoulder bags like I have done before! I'm just not that much of a planner... I never know what I want to work on or with what until I sit down at my table! I'll just bring my K-State album stuff to work on... hopefully that will force me to finish it up!
