RAK and Joy of Crafting Virtual Guest

Happy EARLY Saturday ya'll!! Sorry i've been MIA the last 2 days... caught a cold last weekend and i've been trying to get rid of it alllllll week! yuck! i finally have my voice back and my throst isn't as sore but i'm still coughing up some yuckies... feel much better though... i think with the weather constantly changing here, hot to cold to hot to cold, it was bound to happen... i put crafting aside since my DT posts so i don't have anything ready to show you... maybe tomorrow...

Oh! so i desperately and hoped so so bad that the DH takes me to see Dear John... the newest Nicholas Sparks novel turned movie... now if you spied my profile, then you know i just LOVE all books by Nicholas... yes, i'm a "freak" fan of his... so we actually had a date planned for tonight (saturday) to watch but i just couldn't wait and kept begging him to take me... =D so he did... and OMGosh! i was tearing in the theater and i didn't care who was looking... come on now, i cried reading the book... LOL, so i just knew i was going to cry watching the movie... if you didn't read the book yet, DON'T!! watch the movie first... you'll be a little disappointed if you already know the story and details...

i have a RAK to share with you from my sweet and dear GF Kim Y.... she really surprised me with some HAPPY mail...
Look at this beautiful Valentine's day card she sent to me... love how she glittered the edges... and the fabulous coloring she did on Izzy!! one word... GORGEOUS!!
here's the goodies that she sent with the card... lots of embellies to play with... and some new clear stamps for me to use too... Thank you SO much Kim!!! it really caught me by surprise to see these goodies waiting for me... and despite how i was feeling, you surely brightened my day!! Hugs to you sweetie!
these next bunch of goodies is actually a goodie bag win from the live taping of our local craft show "The Joy of Crafting" hosted by none other than Joy S... i got some luck and was chosen as one of the neighbor island virtual guests... meaning, i'm not actually at the live taping because i'm not on that island, but i was randomly chosen to receive a goodie bag and have my name mentioned on the show... how FABULOUS is that?! and oh my!! I even got a VIP pass with my name on it... Woohooo! So this is my bunch of goodies from the different sponsors of that special taping... it was taped on January 9th and will air next month.... my family and I had the pleasure of meeting Joy in person over the holidays... She's so lovable and fun... and DD#1 just LOVES her.... Thanks Joy for sending over all these goodies!! can't wait to play play play...
Ah! and she even sneaked in something for the girls!!! HK round tins... we didn't open them yet... it's so pretty i don't want them to open it... but by tomorrow, the packaging will be ripped... =D Thank you Aunty Joy for the goodies!!! DD#1 can't wait until you come again... she keeps asking what you'll make next!! hehe!
Oh my! i sure hope you all stuck with me until the end... that's what happens when i'm deprived of keeping up with my blog... i just have so much to share... LOL... i think i'm getting back in to the sway of things again... now that i'm almost 100% over this cold, i feel up to crafting again... i really miss you all and hope to bring you some creations soon! Come back again will ya! Hugs!
