Lookie, Lookie, Lookie!

Whew.....  I have been in North Carolina since last Saturday and I am so happy to have my behind in my own chair, in my own house!  I visited LOTS of family and friends....  I did lots of visiting in NC (Hi Dawn!), SC to visit a newborn baby boy and his Mommy (Hi Holly!) and an accidental trip to GA (don't ask-- let's just say a GPS wouldn't be a bad idea for me!)...  I had a wonderful holiday and I am so blessed to have friends and family that love and care about me so much!  Why am I so tired if I have technically been on vacation for a week??

One of the highlights of my trip was being able to squeeze in a little visit with my friend Dawn (My Stamping Thyme)!  She has shown me all of her coloring secrets and I intend to practice and use them all!!!  She also presented me with the cutest gift EVER!  I am a firm believer that God puts certain people on your life for certain reasons, and I am grateful to have you in my life Dawn!  Thanks girl-- I had so much fun with you! 

Check out what she made me!  She used my favorite Whimsie Doodles image and printed it on fabric to make this bag!  And she made everything pink (because I don't get a lot of that around my house!!).  She put details on her blog about everything-- eeek!  It is soooo cute!!

Wow Nikki! I saw that on her blog and thought it was the cutest thing ever. What a nice gift! You were in Fayettville again and didn't say hi? LOL! Just kidding =)I agree with you though, sometimes vacations or visits seem like alot of work!
