The Giveaway Goody Pics

As some of you remember, I recently had my 3rd Blogoversary and had a giveaway drawing in celebration. The winner of the giveaway was Debbie of Creations by Debbie =)

Here are some photos of what I made for her...the French-inspired shadow box (featuring a gorgeous rhinestone very vintage button), a packet of Sweet Williams to plant - just because they are so darn pretty, and a framed (French inspired, again) ATC. Unfortunately, the card you see in the photo got pink paint on it (hmmm, wonder how that happened?) so I sent Debbie a different card (but didn't have the opportunity to get a pic of it). Sorry 'bout that!

I really loved hosting a giveaway, and hope to have another one soon. Again, thank you to everyone who signed up and many, many congratulations to Debbie!

Crazy Amigo Challenge - Travel

I absolutely love to travel; unfortunately it's something I never seem to do enough of. But if I could, I would most definitely go to Paris and then spend hours and days, weeks...months? ... out in the French countryside. My brother and his family live in England, so I would love to visit them too - and see all the thatch-roofed cottages - in person, not in photographs. My roots are in Europe, like so many of us in the US - and I suppose I've always thought of it as "home" even though I've yet to go there.
