Better get this done!

 OK, need to get this post done to make my two posts a month commitment!
I've been busy as those who follow my Twitter and/or Facebook know.
Making art. It's not great art but it is a completed piece and a collage and I like it.
If it gets into the student art show I'll be delighted. We'll see.
I learned things in the process, I guess that is important.
You'll notice I am not posting a photo of my art. It's Eve departing Eden so I m not sure that one little fig leaf is enough for my family style blog!
I did find a number of goodies to add to my blog prize. It's late so it will not be the best photo. I'm going to take one and put it here anyways, just cause. A comment on this post OR my prior post will enter you, one entry per person please. I think I'll draw the winner at the end of this week.
Yes, this cardstock, embellies, letters, oodles of buttons, bling and glitter will be added to all the items in the previous post!
I'm excited about a trip to Palm Springs later this month for a Shutter Sisters retreat. I am just learning the craft but think it will be exciting to take part. Seems like a fun group. I've already ordered a hot pink tutu with black sparkly overlay and a custom pair of Chuck Taylor's that I  intend to add photos to with some Shoe Attitude glue film. http://www.shoeattitude.com/ Loved that product when I saw it at CHA and have been anxious to try it out.
Feeling pretty good today. The last two weeks have been rough. Looking forward to a good week!
Wishing you all well. Hope you are enjoying Autumn. Take lots of photos the light is fantastic this time of year!

Last Day of Summer! Awesome Day!

 Yes, Gail, I've been overwhelmed. I just read your comment today, LOL!
As my twitter updated noted, it's all a bit much, though I love my classes.
Looks like I still have a chance of making my two blog posts a month commitment. I had hoped to increase my posting but think I've found a good spot. You can expect two posts and sometimes more.
Today, despite the fact that I am cleaning up my house (never a fave task), has been wonderful.
First:
Yes, the shuttle flew over my house today! Awesome!

Second: I have a blog prize for a lucky person.
This is just the start. Since I'm organizing, I'm sure I can add more goodies. Seems a bit stamp heavy; so, must find a few goodies to balance this out.
To enter, just leave a comment on this post. If I get more than 12 folk posting comments I'll add something special like a gift certificate to BPC.

I'd love to recommend May Flaum's Kit-tastic Class at Big Picture Classes. Just started and it looks as full of good info, personal attention and prizes as any other class from May has been!
