I Have Some Cleaning to Do... And Some Fun News to Share

THIS is what my table looks like right now after all my Valentine crafting. No joke. Looking at it, I'm not even sure how I finished my last project -- there's no room at all. I need to clean this up before I can do any more stamping, so I don't have a project to share today. Maybe, if I'm lucky, there will be something tomorrow. I DO have some fun news to share, though...

Nancy Panko awarded me this Excellent Blog award. Check out her blog, Fancy Nancy Loves 2 Stamp -- she has some fantastic projects there!! Thanks for the award, Nancy -- I'm honored! :) I can't possibly nominate just a few bloggers to receive this award, because I'm inspired by so many ladies every day! I'll just nominate my entire blogroll -- you all are amazing!! :)

In other news... yesterday I received a complimentary copy of the Take Ten Spring 2008 issue, which means I had something published!!!! I didn't even know I had anything in this issue, so it was definitely a happy surprise! I have two cards in there -- on pages 30 and 60. They are cards I had submitted for their "variations on a theme", so they have the same layout and stamp sets. They decided to break up the pair and use them separately -- okay by me!! *big grin*
Gotta go get a start on that table -- thanks for checking in! Happy Friday -- have a great weekend!!
