Laura Whitaker is the randomly-chosen winner of the Limited Edition You Rock die by Julie Ebersole! YAY! Laura likes dies, and I know this one is going to a good home. Laura, please email me your snail mail address at susanraihala at roadrunner dot com, and I'll mail your prize out as soon as I can!
Now for the cork board. I have a couple of cork boards on the wall in my craft area where I keep a bunch of cards, mostly ones that y'all have sent me. Before Christmas, here's what the board looked like:
Then, I cleared it all off, except for Annie's picture, because I love how Annie's looking up at the board as if to say, "Dang, girl, you have some awesomely talented friends!" BTW, Annie is the furry daughter of my friend Lisa over at Flat Fish Paper Arts. You will see more pictures of Annie over there.
Then, I took all the holiday cards I received and put them up for Annie and me to admire.
If you click on the picture, you will see it larger. What gorgeous cards! Many thanks to all who took the time to make and/or send me cards. It's so sweet of you to do that, and I really do appreciate your kindness.
And now for the pear, as promised.
