Happy surprises...

My sweet Hubby brought home some beautiful flowers to me on the anniversary of our meeting each other 20 years ago...What a sweet surprise!!!...Our real anniversary isn't until December :0)

...I popped into the bookstore the other day and picked up the current copy of Somerset Studio and Cloth Paper Scissors magazines to peek at what was new...In both magazines many things caught my eye but in particular one artists work really stood out and demanded I look at it over and over again taking in all the small details that make her art what it is...The artist is Tracie Lyn Huskamp and if you haven't witnessed her art I encourage you to do so :0)

Call it timing or call it fate but when I got home I looked her up on the internet and was pleased that she was having a giveaway on her blog and I threw my name in the hat for the drawing...I was one of the winners of her outstanding bird stencils...They came in the mail yesterday all tied up in a pretty pink ribbon...I couldn't be more excited!!!I never win anything it seems... and I LOVE birds, so I am one super happy girl!!!

I can't wait to start playing around with them and see where my little mischevious MUSE takes me :0)
Thank You so MUCH Tracie, what a fun surprise for me!!!

Amber.. THANK YOU so VERY MUCH for visiting my blog. I am THRILLED you were one of the winners. If you have any questions, regarding your stencils PLEASE don't hesitate to email me.

Your kind compliments have REALLY made me smile this morning.



I thought my husband and I must be the only ones who celebrate the anniversary of the day we met :) He always brings me flowers that day too :) Aren't husbands sweet? (Well, most of the time) We celebrate that day in lieu of Valentine's Day, as it really does have special meaning for us. Happy 20th!!
