and the winner is........

you MUST be kidding...it's way too early in the post to announce the winner...



Ah.........
the anticipation....

I got this email again...& she asked "where really do you make your art...you tease alot...is that magazine really your studio?"


YEP...the photo on the right sidebar REALLY IS my studio...no joking...this time

Believe me...I LOVE IT!

And several asked for updates on the wool projects...
those are coming next week...

I'll have plenty of airport wait time this week to get something done...
so...stay tuned on that front...

Here's another fun holiday project...

a bonus of sorts... because I LOVE YOU GUYS...
a little inspiration for you...I hope...





The supplies are all available from my 2 favorite on line shopping hot spots...

eclecticPaperie ...they have the Maya Road scallop chipboard base

and...

Simon Says Stamp ...they have ALL the archival inks & reinkers now!

Both have all my stamps too.

And speaking of Simon Says Stamp...
remember this???

I've just hopped over for the first time from Simon Says Stamp, hearing about you first (and for a long time) on Hels and Linda E's blogs, and have become a follower... I like what I've seen and look forward to more inspiration.

And WOW at that studio ! You are sooooo fortunate to have a playroom like that Wendy!
