{Best day EVER . . .TODAY!}

I've spent the past month with butterflies in my stomach, waiting for TODAY.  Today. Today was never even in the realm of my crafty dreams and goals.  I am humbled, thrilled, blessed, and over-the-moon excited to announce that I have been invited to become one of Paper Crafts magazine's Go-To Gals.
A Go-To Gal?
ME?
Is this real life!?
I'm still in total shock! Every time I say it, (and I haven't been able to say it out loud much yet) I am awestruck again.  I feel so overwhelmingly blessed to share what I love and to work for the magazine that I adore.  Me. Working for Paper Crafts magazine. Seriously? (I told you, I'm still trying to wrap my brain around it!)


I am excited to make new friends  and to continue to do what I love and what I've always done - to create, to share, and to be inspired - and hopefully to inspire you too!  Thanks so much for coming by today, and thanks for sharing in my best day ever! It's going to be an adventure!!! xoxo

PS - if you haven't been over to the Paper Crafts Connection blog, head over there. . .the returning Go-To Gals were announced yesterday, and the other two new Go-To Gals will be announced at 11am EDT, and 1pm EDT today!

(card goodies: stamps - Close To My Heart, cardstock - Discount Cardstock, jewels - Hero Arts, ink - Clearsnap)
