I usually shy away from these sorts of posts because I don't want to seem boisterious amounst a sea of talented crafters. Sometimes I feel like the little people, the newbies, folks like me get overlooked when I know, I KNOW, how much heart and soul we all pour into our creations, the last thing I want to do is have a Nanee-nanee-booboo Look at me!! Look at me!!! moment. On the other hand, I have allowed myself to appear ungrateful in what I thought was a shot at modesty, so here we are, a fine medium, I think. I hope.
Well, to start off, I have been sent an award from my dear boss lady Kellie,

Now ladies, don't worry about getting to this, if you can, then go ahead, but if not, no worries :) I could possibly be the worst blog award reciever out there, so no worries if a monosyllabic quiz doesn't strike you as top-priority. I certainly won't take it personally, after all, worst passer outer right here!! *************GOOD NEWS*************
The adoption papers have been processed & finalized & it is now official: I am a bonafide Adopted Aussie!!!Kellie
has invited me to stay on as a permanent Design Team member atMagnolia Down Under Challenges
andMagnolia Down Under,
the shop!! Hot diggity dog!! Thanks Boss Lady!! *************MORE GOOD NEWS**********
There must have been something in the water that week
because a couple of my last Magnolia creations have gone and
won me some awards!!
My DT-MDU Edwin the Chef
was SPOTLIGHTED atSaturday Spotlight with Hidden PotentialPilgrim Tilda
, the Thanksgiving card I made for my great aunt
won the challenge over at Stampin' For The Weekend
, it was a wonderful sketch and I can barely wait to play with that WOJ stamp!! It will be my first :) Pilgrim Tilda got placed in the Top over atThe Pink Elephant
and she has also been displayed on the 7 Kids College Fund store blog
. How cool is that??! Tab is a sweetie, and I have noticed that she gets her Maggies in before other U.S. shops do, hint hint...
On a sadder note, my great aunt passed away this past Tuesday,
so it is a little weird to have this card I made for her getting
such rave reviews, however, I did take it with me when I flew out
to California to see her for the last time and I brought the card
along and gave it to her. She used to make porcelain dolls and
that is one of the reasons why I like Tilda so much, she reminds me
of the little baby dolls my great aunt used to make, sniffle sniffle.
Rest In Peace, Aunt Jamie.
It's been a great pleasure to have something, or somethings upbeat happen in such sad times, so thanks to all of you that have come by and visited and left me such nice thoughts. Thank you soooo sooooo much. And Kellie, thank you!! I've been walking on air since I got your email, I am so glad you've chosen me to be your Adopted Aussie, it must be my blonde hair...No. No, it is the Wizard of Oz thing!! Kidding, but I sure do love working with ya and our random chats and analogies, ha!! Thanks for listening to me, or reading along with my melancholy days, it means a lot to me.
