I'm Feeling Much Better and Very Blessed!!!

Hello and TGIF!!!

I am so happy to say that I am finally feeling better and clear headed again! LOL! I learned my lesson - don't go out in the rain to run a billion errands when you only 'think' you are feeling better! ;)
Also - BIG THANK YOU's to all you darlings that left such sweet comments for my Nicky! He was so happy to see his stuff on the computer and even happier when he found out that people were 'talking' back to him! LOL! ;)

My scrappy and bloggy world has been extremely fun, uplifting and busy!!!
I have some things that I have done, that are on-going and a few yummy things that I have received in between it all - book clubs, RAKs, and prizes!!!

Warning! This is my "ketchup" post of the month ;) Don't say I didn't warn you! LOL!

There were 2 wonderful surprises waiting in my mailbox yesterday...
First, Jami of Stamp Happy with Sgt. Stamper sent me this adorable lil card with my initial on it!!! a bookmark (she knows me so well, lol!), dew drops and beautiful Korean ribbons!!!
I love and appreciate it all so much!!!
Thank you for the Thank You, Jami!!!

My 2nd surprise was a Thank You card from Alison of 21st Century Pillow Talk!!!
Alison is the store-owner of Scrapaholics in West Hempstead, NY! and a fellow Twilight-Mom :)
It's been a pleasure getting to know sweet Alison!
Thank you!!!

Another fellow Twilighter is being featured on our Sissy's Scrap Challenge blog as May's Guest Designer...
Erica of Inked Up and Ready to Play!!!
Please stop on by to welcome her to our family :)
and check out the Layout Sketch Challenge that my Lil Sissy came up with all on her own ;)

Speaking of Twilight ;)
It's my turn to be this month's host at Twilight Tuesday's "Book Coven"!
I chose "Sarah's Key" by Tatiana de Rosnay... (you can click on the book pic for more info at Twilight Tuesday's Amazon Bookstore)... Come on by and join in on Twilight Tuesday's forum! There are other book discussions going on - Twilight Saga (duh!), Sookie books, Outlander, and next months book-of-the-month is "The Time Traveler's Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger.... just to name a few!!! The Administrators have done a wonderful job setting up the forum! Come on by and take a look :)

A few weeks ago, I won some Hambly Silk Screen Rub-ons from Jane of Whoopsie Daisy! Please stop by and say 'hi', she has the most cutest cards to share with everyone :) and has weekly Monday give-aways!

... luck has been by my side lately ;)

{I hope I didn't just jinx myself, lol!}

Look what else I won - a PaperCrafts Mag and Unity's "Tiny Trinity" stamp set from Paper Crafts Connections!!! I didn't believe it until I received the email saying that it really was me! LOL!

Last, but certainly not least...

Maria of Stampin Inspirations by Maria has started an awesome book club - The Cafe Corner Book Club!!!

For May, we are currently reading "The Host" by Stephanie Meyer - I just finished it a few days ago, and I loved it! I highly recommend it! Definitely stop by the blog to get more info and join in on our Google discussions group!
... and our book for June is "No Time for Goodbye" by Linwood Barclay! A very suspenseful and unexpected story! It was my choice, I haven't read it yet - and I hope I can handle it! LOL! I'm a chicken when it comes to things that can be related to real-life happenings! I'm like Joey from "Friends" who kept Stephen King's "The Shining" in the freezer! LOL!

Ok! If you made it this far, bless your lil heart! I wish I had a prize or something to give you to make up for your time ;)

Enjoy the start of your weekend!!!

We have T-ball first thing in the morning ;) G'nite!!!
