I'm in LOVE!!!

OK, so back before Christmas I ordered this adorable little Snow Pixie from Jenny at The Polka Dot Pixie . I loved it - it was so sweet and tiny and delicate!

Last week, I couldn't resist ordering this adorable little
Valentine Snow Pixie!

The picture doesn't even do her justice!!
You've got to stop by Jenny's Lollishop and check out
more of her cuties!! Oh, those cheeks!!

Oh, and look at the gorgeous necklace I won from the
lovely Jamie over at Simply Me Art !

Again, the picture doesn't even come close to doing it justice!!
Thank you SO MUCH, Jamie!

Well, that's all for now! Have a super week!

Memories of Marie...

Now that my head has stopped spinning, I'm finally able to post some pictures of the Marie Antoinette Workshop & Soiree (pictures that I've "borrowed" from the other gals!)

These are our LOVELY hostesses Kim & Candice!
They thought of EVERYTHING! I can't remember the last time
I felt so pampered! Thank you ladies!!

This is our classroom! So much pink yumminess!

Our box full of luscious supplies!

The talented and HILARIOUS Maija & yours truly.

Page one of the "journal" we worked on.

Our Royal Tea Luncheon

Two amazing ladies, Jessi & Christine Rose.

Sweets! Almost too pretty to eat! (I said "almost"!)
We ended the day with pink champagne & delicious eats and swaps.
My "Wand Fit for a Queen" swap partner, Kelly & well, me.
It was an amazing day!! I tried to take in and absorb all that I could!
So many beautiful, sweet & talented women in one room!!

Kim, thank you SO MUCH for letting me be a part of this
WONDERFUL and special weekend!!
