Good morning fantastic friends of mine. Thanks to all of you, I won the guest designer spot for Cosmo Cricket next month!!!!!! Woohoo! I will be receiving my goodie box soon and will be creating projects for the month of November. You can watch the video here where Julie announces the winner. Man my pits were dripping wet.....then I snarfed down a Kit Kat that was supposed to be used for a blog post. :) I couldn't have won without all of you casting your votes for me. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. And this couldn't have happened at a better time. I was feeling quite bummed over the weekend and my creativity was zapped. When you share and share and share......and then someone takes advantage of your ideas and tries to profit from them....it's very disheartening. I didn't want to create a single thing. But then I got the announcement from Cosmo Cricket and I read all of your wonderful comments on their blog post. I was brought to tears by your kindness. I realized that it only took one person to bring me down....but there were dozens and dozens of you out there lifting me up. So I thank you again, I am truly humbled.
Okay, enough of the gushy stuff. I'm getting the girls off to school and then I'm having a canning session with my mom. Can you believe the gardens are still producing? We have oodles of jalapeno peppers so we're trynig our hand at Candied Jalapenos. Stay tuned for a new post yet today.....I'll be featuring some adorably cute Christmas tags and a new item from my Etsy shop.
