Today, I am here to announce the WINNER, who I chose from a "Random Drawing" of all entries, based on the date they were posted. I had 15 entries and the lucky winner is Number 9 and that is "Deborah Nolan" -- Congratulations Deb! I will be in touch with you today and will get your prize package out in the mail this week!
Here is a what Deb wrote in her post on September 21st!!
And for those who may be wondering, Deb had also emailed me and asked I wanted to take part in the really fun "Creative Blog Hop" that has being going around the Craft World. Unfortunately, as much as I LOVED the whole idea, I did not have any goodies with me in California and did not even have all my craft contacts, so I had to pass on her invite. If you would like to learn more about this, you can read "Deb's" post on her blog HERE! Isn't that such a fun idea? I sure thought so and was a bit bummed that I could not accept Deb's invite!
But, I have to admit that I was quite happy to be enjoying time with my son and daughter in law! I had a wonderful vacation, but admit, I was also ready to come home and the last day, I found I really missed my Hubby and my Pups! My hubby worked very hard while I was away and that means that my new craft room is all done and I'm now in the process of slowly moving in!! Yay! New pictures and a tour will follow soon!
It's a ton of work, but I am also doing a major purge and will be donating all my excess supplies to Little Paws Dachshund Rescue, who is hosting their Annual Fundraiser Yard Sale next weekend. I'm so happy that the timing worker out so well and hope that all these supplies, plus some other things we have put aside for the group, will help raise lots of money for the Group! For more information on adopting a Rescue from Little Paws, please visit their Facebook page HERE! Or their main page here, to see the available dogs, and to find the adoption application! You'll also find a link with information about the Yard Sale on the home page!! Fabre is the Chair for Fundraising and it's because of her that Skye and Zeva came into my life. I connected with Fabre after another on of my blog followers, (Diane), read my post looking to find out about adopting a Dachshund. The rest, as you all know is now history! I'm very fond of any rescue, especially those who love Dachshunds as much as I do!

We adopted Zeva just one year this week!

PS: I'm also currently taking the fabulous "Copic Markers for Card makers" class and have to admit that I'm very behind, because of my trip. But, I have watched ALL the videos and can NOT wait to start coloring. And even though I have been coloring with Copics for quite some time now, not to mention how many Copic related classes, I have already taken, this is one that's a MUST for all! A lot has changed since I first started my Copic Collection and the new tips and ideas the designers have shared in class, has been amazing. I can't believe how many new things I have learned and and am very much looking forward to coloring in my new craft room, very soon! To think that I almost didn't take this class, because I didn't think I'd learn anything new Wow, was I wrong! I am SO happy to be in the class and am looking forward to another fun filled week of coloring. I plan to share some of my coloring projects with you in the next few days. Stay tuned for that and more and I finally get back to crafting!
