Oh My! What a Day this is Going to Be!!

It's 8:30 am and today is starting out fabulously!

"It's my Birthday!" Yep. Today I am 46. I will take a self portrait later. After I get as beautiful as I can (wrinkles, bags under my bags). As most scrap bookers will attest, we are usually behind the camera instead of in front of it. If I can get one photo in a year, to document my aging process and share with my kids what their momma thought - other than what's for dinner, etc., that would be a great accomplishment.

Ignoring the fact that my toes are still frozen from the morning chores (33 degrees) and the 5:00 am bottle prep for the two lambs in the laundry room, and that the processor called wanting to know where my cut and wrap instructions are for 11 lambs - my day is rocking!

It all starting with Ali's Blog last week. She posted daily about focusing on 'telling the story' when we scrapbook with our photos. Her posts were awesome! She, is a fantastic artist. Well, one day, she did a 'review' of different paper types, and she used some super cool translucent vellum to print her photos, and I was thinking 'dang, that stuff is awesome'!

I clicked on the Paper Mill Store's Blog and they were having a give-a-way. Well, this morning, I found out I am one of the winners! OH MY! THREE reams of paper are being sent -2 separate weights of the translucent vellum and 1 ream of their doublemate cardstock!

How cool is this? If you are a scrap booker, card maker or paper 'lover' you are probably jumping up and down with me! I mean, not 10 sheets of paper, but reams!!!!!!!!! OH my...

OK. See how easy I am to please?

Happy Birthday Andi!

It's Karen from Michigan (Hero Arts blogger :) stopping in to see how you are. I can't believe it's YOUR BIRTHDAY. Just celebrated my Brother's yesterday! Anyway, I was so happy to see your name in my email box! I always thought that you were someone that I would like to contact...sounds like the same values, and a lifestyle I could relate to. Don't forget, I'm not a TECHNO gal, so I have to check all of this blogging thing out :) You're probably getting ready for bed and an EARLY wakeup, so hoped you enjoyed your Birthday. Talk to you later.
