Im new at this...But THANK YOU SARAH!!!

Thank you so much for all the warm welcomes from all of you! It means so much!!

 I'd like to say "THANK YOU!!" to my bestest Etsy pal Sarah from 'My so called junky life' for setting me up on my blog and creating my beautiful blog banner! I never thought I'd have such a pretty blog!! To be honest, having a blog always seemed like it would take up any extra time I have (which is hardly any), plus, Im much more a 'creator' than a writer. So there will probably be alot more photos than words here!

 Sarah is one of those people that you are fortunate to have in your life. She's very warm and caring, and listens to me babble about the husband, the kids, this and that. We met on etsy, she bought a hat from me when I first started out. (Remember the hat Sarah?) Acually, I think we traded for something. Anyways, we became friends not long after that. We talk on the phone, she sends me goodies in the mail, I send her goodies in the mail. I will call her and say "Hey Sarah, I need some doilies and some vintage buttons, got any??" And she will say "I need some banners for my booth, can you make me some?". Even though she is in Missouri, and I in North Carolina, we are always there for each other. I truely cherrish our friendship! Sarah and I have never met in person, but we plan one day to meet in Texas for the Marborough show, just us two, and lots of shopping! Who knows, maybe one day we will both be IN the show!

Heres a little news that Im pretty excited about! One of my banners will be in the annual issue of "REAL SIMPLE" Magazine! Its their annual 'Weddings' issue! It was supposed to come out yesterday and I have yet to see it! (Ive only been to Walmart and its not out on the shelves as of today) Cant wait to see it!

Enough talking! I gotta go back into my studio and make 25 birdnest gift bags for a baby shower!

...and thank you Sarah for being such a great friend! xoxox!

aint they the cutest?? :) Hope y'all have a fabulous weekend!!

Hi Amanda! I popped over from Sarah's blog. Loving those bags! Congrats on your banner being printed. Your work is beautiful. I'm not too far away either in South Carolina--they are actually predicting snow tonight :) Happy Sunday, Kris
