I am thrilled beyond words!!! I logged onto GCD Studios last night after a busy and stressful day to see how the blog party was going, and I saw this post! So I submitted some work for the DT position and I knew it was completely a long shot, but I really love their papers and I would love to be on a DT. The ladies they picked for the DT are insanely talented. I love to see the styles of other artists, so I enjoyed reading the bios and visiting their blogs. I just could not believe that I was picked to be a product tester! Yay!! Thank you to Heidi Sonboul, who was the coordinator in all of this. She had such kind and encouraging words to say about my work. I appreciate the opportunity so much! Okay. . .enough gushing, but I had to share or I would burst. =)

In other news, my mom and dad caved and gave in to this little sweetie!!

Isn't she the cutest? Her name is "Latte" and we are in love with her! I am babysitting right now. =) She is a cuddle bug and that tiny mushed in face just melts me.


It was the inspiration for this little ditty

Hope the rest of the week is just as lovely! We are finally all healthy! Whew. Looking forward to warmer days and no snow! THis crazy Indiana weather - geesh! Around this time when most places have flowers blooming and 70degree weather with sunshine and I wake up to snow, I ask myself - "Why do I live in Indiana?" Lol! Ah well - at least my uggs get some good useage. =)
