It's Your Day!!

Hello happy crafters! I am home! For those who are new to my blog, I have been flying back and forth between my home in Maryland to Arizona to help my parents with life. My father will be 89 in two weeks and has the beginning of Alzheimer and my mother 86 is having several health issues. I was out there for 2  weeks in the beginning of March and after returning home my mother was in a vehicle accident and I flew out for another 3 weeks. My mother was very fortunate and had some major bruising and no broken bones or damage organs. After being gone for a total of 35 days I could not wait to be back home. I missed DH terrible:) He is so good to me and I love him dearly. He had the house professionally clean before I returned and oh my gosh what a  HUGE surprise and treat for me!!

Isn't this the happiest little duck you ever did see!?! He is  part of the A-Blooming with Blessings Stamp Collection  at Gina K design!.

I have a few announcements to make!! Through The Craftroom Door challenge theme is "Show me your favorite technique"  and the prizes are a $10.00 gift certificate to Floppy Latte's Digital Designs
$18.00 gift certificate with Aletha, demonstrator for Ippity!

The Outlawz Baltimore Retreat Rodeo is coming upon us quickly!!
 Hope you are joining us for fun, games, classes and an entire girls weekend together!!

I am now the proud owner of Through The Craftroom Door Magazine
 and can't wait for my first publication on May 15th! Lots of tutorials,
 ideas and fantastic inspirations!! Hope you will join me in my new adventure!! It also is not to late to enter submissions!! Wouldn't you love to have one of your awesome creations in a magazine. The theme  is "Anything Goes!"  
I am looking for tutorials, projects, craft room photo's, how you store your stash. Anything that is related to paper crafts! It can not be posted anywhere else on the web before and for 2 months after the publication. There will be a random drawing prize for all submissions. Come on!!   I need YOU!
