lookie lookie what I made.. and we have a winner here!

I'm on call for work this weekend, and luckily its been pretty quiet.. I've had enough time to make this little kitty in memory of Jasper. I also cleaned my craft room up a bit.. I need more shelves in there! too much stuff! I managed to mail out three packages yesterday, so that cleaned up some of it.. I had swap stuff all over waiting to be mailed! I mailed a package to my partner for Dollys swap, Jullie in Australia! cant wait for her to get it! I also mailed out a package to another swap partner Stella, from the tokens of love swap and I mailed out a third package for a special one on one swap to someone special! I still have two left to pack up.. I dont have my partners name yet for the bits and baubles swap.. I think we get those soon.

I recieved a package today from my buddy Natalea kandefor. She hosted a valentine ornament swap that there were ten girls in, we each made 10 ornies and sent them to nat, and then she sorted them out and mailed us back one from each girl. they are wonderful ! I love every single one. I cant post them yet because I'm sure the others probably havent recieved them yet. Nat doesnt live far from me, so I probably got mine first. Oh... what the heck, I can give you a little sneak peek! this is before everything is opened! What a fun fun swap!

OK.. the winner of the little teddy bear valentine pinkeep is ::: Mary Isabella!! yay Mary! now I just have to tell you that I did not make that little bear, it is a littlest gund bear but I doctored him up and dressed him to match the pinkeep! congrats Mary! My husband picked the winners name. He does come in handy every once and awhile! I hope you like the pinkeep Mary.. please email me your address!

And one more thing.. the egg hunt.. there are 33 girls in the swap .. I will keep it open through monday so if there are any last minute sign ups, this is the time to do it. It'll be fun to see what everyone makes.
I just want to thank you all again for the sweet encouraging support you sent me this week.. It was so appreciated!! I miss him terribly, but I'm ok. (Hugs to you all!)

Vivian, I am so sorry I did not stop by sooner, you poor thing how sad it is to lose such a loved pet. He sure looked like a funny kitty. I bet he loved his home, he had a wonderful CAT LIFE.
