*Some good stuff...some bad stuff* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all....

Wanted to share some good stuff and some bad stuff today....



Good news also :)

Yard sale was a big success! Got rid of lots and lots of stuff and made a VERY nice chunk-o-change! :)

And I have determined that the 26th of January is going to be the busiest day ever of my life! LOL! I am announcing the FAVE THINGS DT that day, announcing the WINNERS of my Nikki Sivils PRIZE on MY BLOG, and also ANOTHER winner on NIKKI'S BLOG for a giveaway I am doing over there too. I will be packing for CHA and re-checking my "to bring" list with me a hundred times, doing a "Showcase on YOU!" post on Nikki Sivils blog...ohhhhhh shoot I KNOW there is something else that day... I think I might have to dig for one of the million to do lists scrap papers I have laying around here! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And speaking of Nikki Sivils... I was just informed yesterday that SCRAPBOOK.COM has PRE-ORDERED all of Nikki's new Spring/Summer lines!! That is HUGE!!! WOW WOW WOW!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

I also wanted to share the mini album I made using Nikki Sivils Sugar Cookie line, that was shown on her blog earlier this week! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

























And a few reminders......
   
The latest challenge is over at the Nikki Sivils blog!
 

And.... Blue Moon Scrapbooking is having a sketch challenge this month.. see all the deets right HERE! :):):):):):)


 And JEAN is HAVING an AMAZING HOLY WOW GIVEAWAY!!! Go check it OUT! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  28. Man oh man!!! You are a busy lady!!!
    Can I just say that I looooove that mini album of yours and I am so stoked to hear that Scrapbook.com will be selling all the NS papers, makes it MUCH easier to get my hands on them in case my LS store does not get her lines which I doubt because that is where I have always gotten my NS papers and stamps.
    Wishing you a wonderful week!!!
    (((((BIG hugs)))))
