News-Worthy Week!

The highlight of my week was coming home to a package from fellow artist extraordinaire, Leslie Avila. Leslie made me a wonderful beachy colored canvas collage that is as extraordinary as she. Thank you and HUGE smooches out to this sweet gal.

My beautiful collage is covered with interesting things to see...painting, stamping, flocking, beading, sewing, piecing, Swarovski crystals...I could go on and on. It is amazing and I will treasure it forever! Can you believe she made this for me??? Do yourself a favor and visit Leslie's blog sometime soon!

It has been a whirlwind week...running with my MIL to appts. and lunches with she and her delightful sister and dinner with my galpal, Bonnie plus planning and scheduling a last minute cruise to the Virgin Islands for hubby & I next month!! Woohoo! We have been wanting to visit Mazatlan in Mexico for 2 years but it just wasn't in the cards with current oil prices making airfare so expensive. We opted for something that was a better value and included meals!! Oh my, on our last cruise I actually got tired of eating but this a shorter one so we should be okay. All that is left to plan now is return airfare and one night hotel...sheesh...what a relief.

From that to blog candy... Check out fellow Magnolia-licious member, Rene's, blog candy for a $20 gift certificate to the Magnolia-licious store. Hurry over to check it out...the contest ends 3/11!

Well, I hope you had a chance to read my post below about my granddaughters' Valentine card which was inspired by the wonderful photo from ABC DT Challenge blog. I was thrilled to peek in on the blog this morning to see I won first prize and a gift certificate!! Woohoo!! Big thank yous to the ABC DT!
