I finished the Running with Inspiration challenge:)
I think Im the only one! LOL.
Today's word was Pride.
I did painting filled with words all about me, good and bad.
(sorry for the yuc iphone pics...still no charger :D)

I am proud to be me :)
I got tons and tons of Happy Mail ready to send out :)

I embroidered this lovely on vintage fabric to send to a special someone:

I went to the raddest art studio today with my mom and my sister. It's called yucandu. I loved it. As soon as my sister sends me the pictures (let the stalking begin) I will share with you what I made and all of the amazing decor.
I loved it.

** On a side note, I just wanted to give a heartfelt thank you to all of you who read my blog regularly, and leave comments and think that I am cool enough to "follow.' It warms my heart every time I think of it :) So, I just wanted to give you another little thank you from me :)
** I also want to make sure that I have all of your blogs in my google reader so if you aren't sure if I follow your blog yet, please leave the url in the comments section so that I can add your blog to my reader :)
