another good mail day

Yay! I really needed it today...I had a really bad day at work (fixing a major mistake created by someone else...it will require my attention for the next couple of days...ugh!) When I came home and saw this sitting on the front porch I actually smiled.

Remember after my last happy mail day I mentioned I was a winner on another blog??? Well I won the prize on the Creative Cafe blog during CHA. A big thank you to all who went and posted for me on their blog...especially to my sister who started a "movement" on my behalf. Anyway I won the photo journal kit from the class they were offering at CHA. Here's a picture...



After I get done with this post I'm going to sit down and read the instructions.

Then in addition to the kit, they sent me some more goodies....



Some papers, die cut sheets, and look at those bags they are chock full of buttons, chipboard, binder rings, tags and felt pieces!!! THANK YOU CREATIVE CAFE!!!!

So after delving into my prize package...I picked up my paint brush and have been creating/destressing all night. The wallart is now finished and drying on my kitchen table...



I decided to use the little gems as accents on the pink circles. Hoping to hang it either tomorrow night or over the weekend and then I will post a picture of it hanging...I think it's going to look great on her pink walls.

Talk later.
