Some Good News

I have some pretty good news. #1) For the Maya Road "Summertime" contest, I was a finalist in the contest and I won a pretty good sized box of free Maya Road goodies. Who doesn't love Maya Road? They are awesome!! #2) I was one of the winners in Helga's Blog "Pink & Green" contest. I think that everyone who participated in that contest won, but that's okay, I'm still thrilled that she chose my "That's Amour" piece as one of the winners.

And if any of you read the English stamping magazine Craft Stamper, look for me in the December issue as the featured guest artist.

(I just proof read what I wrote and it sound like I'm really tooting my own horn and bragging a bit. I don't mean to sound that way I swear, I'm just excited to share some of my good news with you.)
