I have to tell you if I have another week like this week, I’m going to need some Valium or something….LOL! TOTALLY FABULOUS!!!
Today, I received in the mail one of these calendars from Terrill Welch that I won on Twitter…. The calendar is GORGEOUS, those pictures will be framed!

Also, today, I received the email with my teaching contract for my July 2 “Fabric Postcards inspired by Cypress Hills” workshop at SW Quest (Cypress Hills Provincial Park).

This morning, I received a post on my Facebook wall that I had won a Fan giveaway on C & T Publishing fan page...…a BOOK!!!

Awesome friend, Dede Willingham, has painted a FABULOUS abstract painting that she is auctioning on her blog HERE, the winning bid will be donated to my SPAIN fund.  I am so blessed to have such AMAZING friends!!!  I have added a DONATE button on the sidebar…….>>>> if you would like to add to my SPAIN FUND also.  THANK YOU!!!

Then, of course, you already saw the post earlier this week of my winning a spot at Art Mesa in Madrid, Spain…….

So…..YES, am totally thriving!!!  LOL

I have about 10 projects on the go as of last nite at midnight…..hoping to have about half of them finished sometime today!  I am feeling FABULOUS and so energized.  LOVING myself and listening to “Ask & It is Given” By Jerry & Esther Hicks on my iPod, while I’m working,  is making things INCREDIBLE!  Feeling GOOD and being POSITIVE truly does make a person HAPPIER!!!

Have a FABULOUS day!!!
