Thrilled, absolutely thrilled! Thank you sweet mini-Vanna Jess for drawing my name for one of your mom's prizes!!

So glad you're home, Michelle - safe and sound with your family. Get some more sleep! Too bad I'm so far away from your area to join your party - have fun! And thanks again for taking us on the journey to China with you.


Congrats to the winners... yippee yeah... just sad it wasn't me!

Michelle... I'll look forward to the party even though I've seen the samples and absolutely LOVE them! Great job girl... rest and enjoy your family!


Congrats to the winners!.......I guess that's what I'm suppose to say instead of...."I didn't win? Whatever!" =)

Welcome Home!
luv ya!

Wow - I honestly can not believe I have never seen your blog before! I am another artist (children's) and give my own honest version of what it is like to own my own business, advice, failures, blah blah - I am sure you know the drill. I wish I took more photos though - your blog is great! I was at Atlanta in Jan and July (Childrnen's Section) and found your blog through someone that found mine....long story short - nice to find a great read!
