*she creates with me* :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

hi all....

Today our newest challenge went LIVE over at These are a Few of My Favorite Things!!! This time we want to see your FAVE TOYS!!! Well.... MY FAVE TOY is my SEWING MACHINE!!!! Seriously.... U can ask many of my Arizona friends... I was SCARED to DEATH of using one of these... I have a disability in my right hand and was always scared that I would hurt myself using one of these fast moving machines... but one of my friends taught me (Thanks Kerry Lynn... love U forever for this!!) how to use one and I have been HOOKED ever since!! U will rarely see me NOT sew on one of my pages now!!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)







Yep...this is my Bertha girl!!! We are still learning each other and as long as Julie keeps her patience....Bertha plays along just nicely!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):) Those adorable little sewing chipboard pieces on the top of my lo are from my dear kindred spirit (and fellow Rochester, NY'er!) Diana!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And I wanted to thank those that gave me CONGRATS on staying on for another year designing for Nikki Sivils!! U can see the announcement here!!!   I am wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy excited to be staying on for another term and thanks to Nikki, Susan and Hilde for choosing me again!! I can not wait to get started working with everyone!!!! And since Nikki took my normal 14th post (hehehehehehehe...its all good, since she was announcing the new team! LOL!) I will BE POSTING over on Nikki's blog TOMORROW the 16th!!! Make sure to come check it out...as some of U may know... I showcase others work that have used Nikki's products on her blog and TOMORROW I am LUCKY enough to have NINE people's lo's to share with everyone!! CAN'T WAIT! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  11. Congrats on being chosen once again for the NS Team!! Let me just say, I hear you on being scared of a sewing machine. I bought mine in January and have barely used it because that darn little thing scares the crap out of me. You might have to come over and give me lessons :)
