It's Friday already!

They say time flies when you have fun so I guess I shouldn't be surprised that it's Friday already! I'm having soooo much fun at home! Wish I can become a SAHM.
Soo ... I picked a name out of the "teacup" and the winner of my blog banner giveaway is ...

Congrats Desire! I'll e-mail you to make arrangements for setting it up.

I still haven't finished (or worked on) my blog banner. Too busy with my papers and SB room. Must admit - paper is my first love ... and it will be my last! I enjoy playing around with digi stuff but I love the "reality" of paper scrapping more.
In response to Stefanie's comment about an earlier post of mine - I'm really not as clued up with the blog beautification as you might think. I know that Wilna Furstenburg presented a course on just that a while ago - she's REALLY good at it!
Look at this beautiful thing I stumbled upon on the web:

This is what I did almost all day long yesterday! I sorted my alphas. I reckoned I had a few but never realised they were SO many! I used plastic bags to keep the smaller ones seperate.

And this is what my Alphabet Chest of Drawers that I had made recently looks like:
I absolute adore it and can't wait to make my first title from it! :) Leon put it up for me above my sewing desk in my scrap room. Here's a couple more shots of my pinker than pink scrap room. I love to paint and distress furniture. Don't you just adore my pink chest of drawers! Still need to find the perfect drawer knobs for it though.
I love bunnies - can you tell?! :)

My scrap room is still very much a work in progress as I still have shelves that I need to be put up and a LOT of organising to be done but I'm getting there ... slowly but surely!

Today I want to scrap a couple of school pages ... I think. Will have to see where my mojo takes me though ...

Your room is beautiful. So very pretty. Can just imagine why your mojo is coming to live there.

Congrats Desire. You lucky fish.

Hi Michelle. Wow I was totally surprised when I got your email announcing I'm the winner of a new blog banner designed especially for me by you. You have probably noticed that your beautiful banner are up in lights over at DOING LIFE. Thank you so much. I am deeply in love with it. Hop on over to Doing Life where I have also thanked you for your generosity.
