I Won!

Exciting news...I won a copy of Altered Books 102, Beyond the Basics from Sally Turlington. I commented on her blog about new techniques I would like to try and got picked out of those comments to win! Yipee! Thanks, Sally. Please go over to or and check out her beautiful work. You will be very inspired after viewing it.

Took down my tree and all the Christmas decorations today. It's later than I usually take it down, but spent much of my time last week painting. So now everything is back in "order". Now for my craft room, quite a mess. Kind of an organized mess, but a mess non-the-less. Have work to do and need some space to do it in! LOL

Thanks for stopping in to look, and please take a look at Sally's sites. You'll be glad you did.

Happy New Year everyone! DH and I went to see "The Great Debaters" last night on New Year's Eve. What a wonderful movie, inspirational. Densel Washington and Forrest Whitaker did an excellent job and I see awards in their future for their performances.
After arriving back home we sat down to watch the new year ring in at Times Square and went promptly to bed at about 12:05. Hey, we made it up past midnight, which we failed to do last year!
My "goal".....notice I didn't say new years to remember to call and send everyone close to me a birthday card......on time!! That's where the problem arises. I am making a birthday reminder folder and making all my cards this year, hopefully. I'm such a bad procrastinator when it comes to getting cards off on time. So far one's already on it's way to a daughter-in-law whose birthday happens to be January 4th. Happy birthday Dawn!!
I wish everyone great health and many blessings over the new year! Beth
