Fun News

Go HERE now:) The lovely and talented Miss Moki is featured on the CRAFT blog today!! How awesome is that!!!

On my first day of vacation (yesterday) I got up at 6:30!!!! Doesn't my body know that I get to sleep in for the next 8 days! I got tremendously far on my list of chores to get done though so I am all that much closer to being able to craft and work on getting my scrapbooking stuff organized for the L.O.A.D. challenge I am participating in.

And for those of you that got a copy of our family newsletter....I alluded to a new calling at church and today it is official. I was released as Relief Society pianist and called to serve in the Cub Scouts as a den leader. My co-den leader is my dear friend Carla so that is going to be really exciting. I know nothing about scouts, other than occassionally going to a scouting function with my little brothers so we'll see how this goes! I have my first official meeting on Wed night. I still have my calling at Ward Music Chairman too.

I mentioned quite a while ago that I did a gift exchange for Christmas with my local ATC group - here are the gifties I received.

A tortilla warmer, fortune cookie coasters and lavendar sachets from sweet Louise:

Ornaments and magnets made from Raine's awesome photography, two charms from Leau - I hung one on the tree and I am going to put the other on a necklace, Christmas earrings from vintage postage stamps from Donna and a really cool bird ornament also from Louise:

A handpainted silk scarf also from Donna and two fabulous quilted hot pads from Colleen - I told her they were too pretty to use as hotpads and I am going to instead hang them on my mini quilt wall (which I haven't put up yet - but it's on my to do list):

These ladies just ooze talent!!! I am so happy to be able to associate and be inspired by each one of them.

And be sure to leave Moki a comment at how excited you are that she is famous!

After I read this I checked my mail box and there was the letter from you! Lol what a coincidence. I also wanted to thank you for last Friday's package too! That was so sweet of you to send me the needle book and lip balm (I think it was you....) You are a sweetheart. All the best for 2008!
