And the winner is . . .

Good Sunday morning to you!

Another beautiful morning in Southern California.

Karen! Just TELL THEM!
Yelling at her will get you nowhere.
You have to be polite and be patient.
You have to look cute and cuddly . . . 
Like this?
Well pink looks more adorable . . . 

Ok, no more shenanigans for those two!

That is a big ol' bucket of names.
Thanks everyone for joining in on the fun!
The winner of my 
"JUST BECAUSE" giveaway is . . .  

Congratulations Joyce!!

Email me your snail mail address
and I will get your box out 
in the mail to you tomorrow!
I know you'll have a good time with all of it!

And do you want to hear some more good news? Remember in my last post I told you that Cindy Adkins from Whimsical Musings convinced me to join in her "Celebrate Your Creative Spirit" link party? I shared with you a canvas of "summer" I made just for me? Well, I just got an Email from Cindy and I WON!

I get to place this winners button on my blog!!!!! And she has a little gift for me too, and I will share it with you when it arrives!

What an HONOR! Holy cow! Thank you Cindy! I had such fun! You are too sweet!

I will be posting Monday's messages on . .. of all days . . . Monday! I want everyone to have time to go congratulate Joyce on her winnings!

So I will see you tomorrow.

Karen, THANK YOU for hosting this amazing give away. You are so generous. And congratulations JOYCE (yes, I'll go tell her too). I LOVE what you did with the shells & the photo. I would love to try my hand at that with some of the left over shells from les Sirenes. Have you seen Joy? If you do... tell her I said hello & I can't wait to come back out so the 3 of us can hang out & you guys can show me some of your favorite haunts. HOPE your foot is better. HUGS! Charlene
