Happy Surprises!

Hi Everyone~

Yesterday was sure a happy day! When I went to my mailbox, my copy of Creating Vintage Charm was in it...

Imagine my excitement when I opened the page that had some of my work on it! There's more too, but this is just a glimpse.

And my good friend Kathy from Creative Home Expressions has a super article in there too!

The entire magazine is chock-full of inspiration, decorating and craft ideas, and even graphics that you can use in your own projects--how neat is that?

Today I am happy to announce the winner of my 8 X 10 "Wander" piece--She is Sonya of Counting My Blessings! Congratulations Sonya!

Also, I have been getting emails from people asking me how to get the magazine. If you want a copy of your own, you can push the button on my sidebar and purchase it online...easy, peasy!

I have a FUN week coming up here on my blog, so I hope you'll stay tuned for my Girlie Girls theme!!!

Linking this to Blue Monday!

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh Cindy Sweetie...
I am so thrilled for you. It just makes my heart SING. When you first wrote about the magazine and you ordered yours, I went over and ordered mine as well, so I should be getting mine soon too. I can't wait. And the best part, I know the BEAUTIFUL artist who created inside. I love it.

You have been on my mind sweet friend. I pray that you had a good Monday. I was so swamped I am pooped tonight. I need a weeks rest at least. So much to be done, and such little time to get things done in. Was so happy to find that we got another 3 week continuing resolution. Praise God.

Keep me posted sweet one. Call when you get a chance. So much to talk about. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
