LUCKY STREAK

I think the moon and stars have finally aligned!
For the first time I can call myself
You see, I NEVER win anything!
NO SERIOUSLY!!

But hopefully my luck has changed.
My new, talented and pretty blog friend
MAIJA LEPOREhad a giveaway and I WON!!
I think she said... WINNER, WINNER, CHICKEN DINNER!
I needed to pinch myself!!
Then the mail came and there it was...
MY GIFT
A really cool doodling book,
(I have to hide from my daughter or it will end up in her room!)

This great journaling book and a really great pen to doodle with
The right pen is really important to get a really crisp look.
Yep, I believe she found it...
Did I tell you, I won it???
Oh yeah I did.
Sorry, I'm just really excited :)
Then the best part.

I won a journaling e-course from
HOPE over at
PAPER RELICS
You should go check it out
Maybe you would want to take the e-course too!


Then my sweet girlfriend, Kim over at
WHITE WHISPERS TO YOU
gave me a BEAUTIFUL BLOGGER AWARD

I'm over the moon with excitement!!
You should really go over to her blog and check her out.

She has 3 beautiful daughters and just became
a new grand-mom
to this sweet little guy
RYDER JAMES-OWEN MICHAEL
Isn't he just precious??So I have to pass this award onto 15 other deserving bloggers.
Trust me, it was so hard to pick just 15!!
You should ALL be getting an award if it was up to me!!
But, like I said, 15 is the magic number,
so here it goes:
(and this is in no special order)

1. MAIJA LEPORE
and not because I won her giveaway,
but because she's really talented
and has a lot of things
to share with you!
2. MAISON DES LILAS
3. LA DOLFINA
4. LULU & COMPANY
5. DUSTY LU
6. MIMI CHARMANTE
7.
LITTLE EMMA ENGLISH HOME
8. BEL DECOR
9. BURLAP LUXE
10. TICKING AND TOILE
11. SWEET AS CANDY
12. CHARM HILL INTERIORS
13. BARDOT IN BLUE
14. BUSHEL AND A PECK
15. THE ZHUSH

I hope you ladies are as excited as I am to get this
blogger award
...
Maybe you're on a lucky streak too!!

Hello Gail,
I am excited for your wins and the great honor given to you from also my dear friend Kim at White Whispers to you... I was given one by Kim as well when I first started blogging and it was a great feeling.
Now to be honored by you, well I am even more grateful that out of the blue someone with a great blog site would look at mine as something to be inspired by.

Thank you for adding me to your blog award of great inspiring bloggers.

See you soon...
Beautiful girl inside and out :)

Hi Gail,
I was totally going to host the exact same giveaway. I am taking Hope's class, and I adore it. Adore her too. She is so creative and a totally wonderful teacher. You will love the class, so get started quickly! And, your daughter is going to love your new doodling book, I am always have to fight my girls to get mine back. I should have ordered two copies.

Enjoy your journal, the class and the book. And Maija is so right, you must have the right pen! Sometimes if I don't like what I am doing, I just switch pens and then all is good!
