one year

The contest is closed.

Today is the one-year anniversary of my blog! I really cannot believe it has been a year - time has gone by so fast this past year. In honor of my little blog, and to thank all of you who stop by, I'm going to do a little drawing. I have an extra copy of Paper Trends December / January issue (I have a fun altered project in it) and I will also throw in a few other scrapin goodies. And don't worry - this issue isn't just all about Christmas and Holiday stuff - there is also lots of other fun stuff in it. It is also not all about scrapbooking. It has ideas for lots of things you can do with paper - invitations, cards, altered projects, gifts, etc. so still enter even if you aren't a scrapbooker. So leave me a comment if you want to be in the drawing. I will draw a name on Wednesday. (If you don't live near me, I will ship the stuff to you.) ETA: You can leave a comment even if you don't have a blog. Just click on the comments link below this post and choose "other" or "anonymous" - but be sure to leave your name so if I pick you I know who the winner is.

In other news, I sang a duet today. I can mark that off of my goal list - yay! It was scary, I tell you. There were 100+ people there, all staring and Crystal and me. I seriously thought I was going to fall over because I was shaking so much. I didn't think my legs would hold me up. Any time I made eye contact with anyone this wave of nervousness washed over me. But we did it and I think it was okay. (So thanks, Crystal, for talking me into it.)

We are getting ready to go up to Seattle for W's work party. Should be fun. Have a great weekend!
