FIRST PRIZE

Collage Sheet Winners

Congratulations to all of the lucky winners, and my deepest and most sincere thanks to everyone for your heartwarming response to my celebration giveaway.  This little blue chicklet is one of my hand drawn doodles. Please take him as a "freebie" and give him a good home! He's a png file, but you can "right click" and save him as a jpeg file too. It my small way of saying a very large "thank you" for being such awesome friends and followers .

 August

 Finished 
and . . .

Before
(Click to see the details!)

I wouldn't say that August flew by, but as I began this post, I actually started to write "July" and realized that I didn't post my August calendar!!! To be honest, I'm very happy that this month has ended - it's been wild and wooly in more ways than one!

*****
Miscellaneous Stuff!

FYI - You may have noticed that the "Artsee Bloggers" button is missing from my sidebar. For many personal reasons, Geri Centzone (My Heart Art), decided to close the site on August 31st. Because of Geri and her generosity, many of us made new friends and contacts. Thank you, Geri. Many blessings and prayers are heading your way.

We'll be celebrating Labor Day on Monday, September 5 here in the States and are getting ready to enjoy a three-day weekend. Labor Day marks the unofficial end of vacation time and summer. I'll be enjoying some family time, and will post again on Monday evening.

Enjoy a  bright, beautiful (and safe) weekend!

I look at your journal pages in awe and admiration and ask myself what it is that blocks me from decorating my calendars. I adore what you make, and maybe it's because I don't decorate mine until I've gotten a feel for the month that keeps my pages so bland. But I think part of it is the one or two words you use each day, while I try to write an entire paragraph (grin). Again, I LOVE what you do.

And congrats to your lucky winners, too.

I finally saw your pages on Kate's blog and wanted to tell you again how much I love these pages. Look forward to September's too.

I also wanted to tell you I used my favorite little girl freebie image again in a quiltlet I made for a friend. It will be on my blog today.

I love your use of colours for August, they work so well and those black/white wordings, they pop out of the page so well :)
