Ever since I won a contest in third grade and got to take home the class guppy, I've known I was lucky. The guppy had babies the next day- Lucky! Yesterday was a particularly lucky day for me- after spending the afternoon at my friend Laura's house (more on that later) I came home to find out I won a cupcake in a blog giveaway over at The Mosaic Queen! I'm so thrilled- I love all her work but her cupcakes are my favorites - you've got to check out her site- it just makes your mouth water. She sent me an e-mail to let me know I won and told me to pick a color and style but I just can't- they're all too pretty. I wrote her back asking if she could surprise me. So- if you are wondering where I'll be for the next week or so- I'll be on my front porch waiting for the mailman to come. Thanks to Michelle for her blog giveaway and a big Thanks to Michelle's husband for picking my name!
So another reason yesterday was so lucky for me- my good friend Laura hosted a craft party. She called it a cardmaking party but there was so much more to do. I made a beaded keychain and a bunch of Christmas ornaments. There was also Quilling and giftbags to decorate. Laura is so generous with all her crafting supplies- she puts a ton of stuff out on the tables and lets you know thats not all of it- just tell her what you need and she'll get it for you. She puts out a beautiful spread of food and she gives out party favors too! She's probably the most generous person I know- she even gave me her quilled snowman! See- again with the lucky.
Of course, no lucky day would be complete without hearing from my Johnno. He sent me an email from Prague! He's traveling there with his friends Marta and Vidar. Next week he goes to Dublin- he's lucky too. Sometimes these things run in a family.
