*My winner... Nikki's winner... just winners everywhere and a little SHOWCASE!* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all....

WOWWWWWW!! What a RESPONSE to not only MY Nikki Sivils GIVEAWAY... but also the one I did over on Nikki's blog too!! WOW!!! I have Nikki's blog winner posted on here BLOG here...and now for MY WINNER.....


CONGRATS Sarabeth.... please email your addy ASAP to get these YUMMY Nikki Sivils papers out to you... I leave in the AM for CHA... but hubby knows my addiction to the post office, so I am sure that he won't mind dropping your package off for me! LOL! (Hi Honey! Waving at Hubby!!! lol!) :):):):):):):):):):)):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)  
And let's see....oh yes, today is my day to POST over at Nikki's blog for my monthly "Showcase on YOU!"...this is BY FAR my FAVE post of the month, as I get to share creations people have made using Nikki's products!! Head on over to give them some LOVE!!!!  
And I got an award from Brandy yesterday!!! 
With this award...I am to name eight facts about me! :) 
1) People always wonder how I accomplish so! Well, part of it is I get up at 3:30 everyday (except for the weekends, when I get up at 5AM then!)...I started getting up at 3:30 when I was a single Mom with Adam when he was it was the only time I got to myself... and have been doing it ever since! :) 
2) I was in drama in school! (I know you are all shocked by this! lol!) ... in fact, I BET you can guess WHAT role I played in the play, "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown!"... *hint... she has the same hair color as me!* :) 
3) A lot of people think I create a lot of things at once, that's not really the case, if I have a month's worth of assignments, I get them all done at once, usually the month before they are due, in fact right now, I have all of my February work for and The Studio done...its just easier for me to work ahead rather than crunch my projects! :)
4) A lot of you all ready know this... but I will share again... I DO NOT drive! Never have, never scare me, period. 
5) My fave color is PINK... but I rarely create with it! :) 
6) I love winter clothes more than summer clothes... which really sucks, because I live in one of the hottest cities in the USA! :) 
7) One of my nicknames is "Miracle Worker"... I can walk into anyone's home/apartment etc...I can re-organize it/clean it/make it all work just right... usually within one day! My BFF once flew me out to NJ for the weekend, just to help her organize her new apartment! LOL!:) 
8) I wanted to be a teacher when I was growing up... I think that is why I am such an advocate for teachers... they don't get enough respect (OR MONEY for that matter!)... and I believe they deserve sooooooooo much more.. if it wasn't for them.... none of us would be where we are today! :) 
There you have it! :)  If you'd like to play along with this blog award... let me know... I'd love to see your list ! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) 
Thanks for stopping by... I truly appreciate it!!! :):):):):):):):):):)):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)  
***ANYONE else having spacing issues on blogger??? It is driving me batty! Sorry this post seems like ONE LONG sentence! I have tried for over an hour and almost 3 hours on Nikki's blog trying to get the spacing right... and its not working...when I am writing the post, it looks like I have 2 spaces in between each paragraph... but when I preview it... its all one long paragraph! :( *****


  1. Congrats to the winner!

    Loved reading these facts about you, I played Lucy Van Pelt in my high school's production of "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown"! :D

  2. Congrats to the winner......
    Julie how do you do it!!!! 330am.....I am yawning thinking about it!!wowwowowow!!!!!!!
    So how many hours of sleep do you get????

  3. I gave up on blogger over a year ago and now use windows live writer. So much easier and faster. It's free.

  4. Love your list. Wow 3:30 a.m. I am just a night owl. Wish I could get my day started that early. You are super woman for sure. :)

  5. what a great list! Wow 3:30 AM?? Do you get any sleep lady? I get up at 5:30 and think it's horrible! LOL! But I sort of understand. My BFF was a single mom for years and had to get up at 4AM and still can't break the habit now that her daughter is older and she is re-married. You are truly a super lady Julie!! Maybe I need to get up at 5:30 on the weekends so I can get stuff done!

  9. loved reading all your fun facts and WOW on the 3 am!!!! That is just amazing!!!!! seriously... if I could stay up till that time every night I would get more done and then sleep in late

  10. LOVE your list and you know I totally agree with the not driving, hahaha!!! But I still can't get used to the hours you get up, I am a sleepyhead on a Sunday I usually get up around 10:30!!!!
    I sometimes have the same problems with posting but I can change the spacing in the HTLM tab on the upper right side where you write your post, have you tried that?
    If won't talk to you anymore, have FUN this weekend wish I where there to meet you!!!!
