....cause I won some blog candy!!! Woohoo - I've never won any before and it was so exciting to read Dana's message this morning. Dana lives in Texas which is where I used to live and thinking about Texas has been reminding me of all the things I great craft shops, lovely stores, warm weather, pool.....and some of the things I don't miss.....baking hot weather, bugs, hurricanes - Yep we were there when Hurricane Rita hit - I've never been so scared in all my life and swore that I never wanted to live anywhere with such powerful weather again!

You can find Dana's blog here Thank you Dana I can't wait to get my goodies.

On a not so postive note - I recently entered a blog where they were offering goodies as a PIF - the first three people were to put their names down, get their goodies and then do the same on their blog. Well I was one of the three, sent my address off and never did get them. Trouble is, as so often happens in blogland - I can't remember where the blog was. It would be nice if people could honour what they say they are going to to save any disappointments for people.

I'm not sure if I'll get much crafting done over the weekend as I have my mil and sil down for a few days. And I'm so busy trying to get all my Stampin Up projects finished in time for the Newbury Rubber Show next week!

Do you all know about the show - Its considered one of the best for rubber stamps and its such a treat that its near me - Newbury Race Course to be exact Sat and Sun 26/27th July. If you'll be there come and say hi to me at the Stampin Up Demo's stand, maybe sign up for a workshop and tell me you saw me on my blog. What a hoot!!!

I don't often post my Stampin Up stuff on this blog as I like to keep it separate and not let you think I'm stuffing SU down your throats - but here are some of the things I'm making for the show - the notepads and bookmarks are going to be part of our Goody Bags! I just love this colour combo - Rose Red and Sage Shadow. Right enough - I'm off for a cuppa as its still early.

Catch you all later crafters...............

There's a chance for some lovely blog candy over here - do check out her blog - there are some fabulous pieces there.
