Happy Mail and a redesigned blog

Woohoo!!! What a day!!!
I got not one, not two, but THREE pieces of happy mail today!!

First, I got my box from Faber-Castell. The entire month of August Faber-Castell has been giving away gifts. All you had to do was click on the giveaway button on their Design Memory Craft facebook page to enter. About a week ago, I got an email that I won!! Woohoo!! Here is what those lovely people sent me:

I am beyond excited because, even though I own gelatos and Pitt Big Brushes, I don't own these two colors. Can not wait to use them!! So fun!!

Second, I got my Canvas Journals from Tracy Weinzapfel. Love, love, love this. Can not wait till we start using it. You can find out about Tracy's September Challenge and what we plan on doing with these journals at this blog post:

The third thing I received today was:

It's a paint brush!!!!! Aren't you excited?
Ok, I am, and you should be. This is not just any paint brush. This is a Donna Downey Paint brush. See the blog post below. I can not wait to paint it and send it back to her. Someday I hope to see it and all the other pretty paint brushes in person.

Beyond the happy mail, I also spent the morning giving the blog an updated look. Hope everyone likes it. Keep watching for new things I am designing every day. I have in house design team samples that will be done soon for The Scrapbooking Studio in Bloomington, IL. I am also working on some things for myself. Will post more as soon as I get things done.
