Tap your toes.....its HAPPY DANCE time!!!

At the very end of July, I was alerted to a blogging friend's Bead Up jewelry being given away on Today's Give Away and of course, lickety split, clicked my way on over there to enter!! And what do you know? But, my very first time entering for one of this fun site's give aways, has me winning!! I chose the beautiful earrings and when they arrived today, I did a HAPPY DANCE!!!

I have had the opportunity to start to get to know this fantastic designer a bit through both of our blogging experiences as well as exchanging emails. On Christyn's blog, you will see her jewelry designs (including some gorgeous custom pieces for several brides and their wedding parties), what inspires her, weekly I love you, Wednesdays posts, and now her newest weekly addition of Fashionably Friday. If you are here as a paper crafter, artist, creator of any medium, or friend, I am sure you will be entertained and inspired when you visit Christyn! Tell her I say "Hi!"

But, wait! There's more!! I seemed to have been wearing my lucky hat because Christyn's earrings were not the only piece of super duper Happy Mail to arrive today!! Anne Gaal, of Gaal Creative, is a paper crafter and photographer, and occasionally has give aways of her lovely photographs. And let me tell you, I was so surprised when I learned that I had won! It is an award winning photograph of a shell with the edge of a wave breaking over it. I absolutely love it!! Please go say 'hello' to Anne too!!

And you can just guess how lively my HAPPY DANCE was when I tell you that I received both of these pieces of art on the SAME day!! Today!!! Happy, happy, happy, Happy, happy, happy....HAPPY!!!!

I hope your day has brought you something to do a Happy Dance for! On a normal day, I take pleasure in the small things and hope there are enough at the end of the day to tap my feet to. But, after my wee daughter decided to draw on the bathroom mirror with her toothbrush (ewwwww!) (and yes, she's getting a new one to brush with tonight!!!) and get into a few other "interesting" situations (aka test Mama's patience meter mode) today, I cannot tell you just how PERFECT the timing is for Christyn & Anne's generous give aways to arrive on my doorstep and giving me a terrific reason to Dance! (Just don't watch.......I'm not overly coordinated, you know!) Have a great one! :>:>:>
