Thank You!

I just wanted to take the time to thank everyone that came out last night for our Pickle+Etsy Event! I was just thrilled with all the new and familiar faces I saw. The store was hopping and full of Christmas cheer. Luckily it was quiet for the last hour and I was able to shop at all the amazing Etsy booths. I have to admit that I took care of three people on my list PLUS me!

Now for the moment you have all been waiting for...the winner of the $80 set of copic markers is Mari-Lynn Dupuis!!!! The draw was a part of last night's festivities plus those of you who completed our copic survey. If you missed last night's event, don't worry....there will be another one at some point in the new year!

New Product is Here!

The new Basic Grey lines and Stampingbella stamps are sitting on my counter as I type this. Did you know that Basic Grey now has scrapbook layout kits? Like the card kits, they are so fun to make and don't require much thinking (which is always a good thing after a long day). =)

So Thankful...

It is so hard to believe that just one week ago today I became a mom, yet I cannot image life without Will. I had no idea my heart could feel this way...
I have had a lot of time to think about how thankful I am. Not only for Will, but my amazing husband (who is absolutely adorable with our son), my family, and all of you. I have been overwhelmed with your thoughtfulness. I couldn't believe all of the happy messages that were posted and emailed, and Kim is constantly passing along all of your thoughtful messages. I have received so many beautiful cards and have been shocked by the gifts and goodies... even handmade sweaters and hats (They are absolutely gorgeous Karen and Lin)!
I get tears in my eyes every time I think about how lucky I am.
This morning as I was running out the door, I received a call from Cynthia, letting me know that she emailed me a photo from Will's photo shoot on Tuesday. He was only 5 days old when we took the trip to get his photos done. It was our first time out of the house since getting home on Saturday, and he was a perfect angel! Not a peep the entire way to London, he slept through the entire 3 hour photo shoot (I guess having the room about 90 degrees will make anyone sleepy!), and then he took everything in the whole way home without a sound.
I couldn't wait to share this photo with all of you! My mind is racing thinking of all of the projects I want to make with these pic's... thanks Cynthia, you are amazing!
