And The July Giveaway Goes To --

Hello Everyone!

A day (or two) late and a dollar short but here we are again. The train is on the track and while not going as fast as usual, it will reach the destination! It's the first day I have been really "up and at 'em, Atom Ant", in almost a week. Thanks for your patience and your good wishes.

Let's jump right in and look whose name came up for our Independence Giveaway Drawing! Congratulations to Anairam, and again, you know how I feel about all artists, crafters, and photographers... Anairam, please send your street addy to canwiggins@gmail.com as soon as you can! Oh dear, it's mistyped in the photo... please forgive me! You'd never know I was a proofreader and editor, would you?

AND, look at all these bags! Yes, a mini brown bag journal for Anairam will be popped in the mail soon and winding its way to the Fourth of July recipient -- please join me in well wishes and whatnots. And go check out her site, too. (Say, you don't think I am using ALL those bags?! It wouldn't be a mini journal then, trust me!)

This was my celestial view from the deck where I sat today, with a cup of tea and cream cheese and strawberry jam on toast after a refreshing summer shower. This greenery really puts me again, on track, hurrying up to finish the rest of those lovely Midsummer Night's Dream characters!

So, truly none the worse for wear, I hope you all
Get More of What You Love.

So glad you are feeling better! Can't wait to see the characters you are creating and lucky Anairam! I am going to try to make a paper bag jounal soon. When I read about them on Judy Wise's blog I had the type of paper bags we get here in mind-the varied in colour and size ones. THen when I looked at her tutorial the other day I realised it is your American ones that she uses. So I am going to use the same method but with my bags. I have collected some great ones including mushroom bags, bread bags and chop stick bags (tiny!)
