How FUN was it, to pull my Google Reader up and see my name posted as a winner for a giveaway!?!?! It was a special treat in an otherwise crazed and stressful week!!! I won the December drawing for a grab bag of cabs from Lori on her blog, Out Of The Flames! And just two days later I received this GORGEOUS bag of cabochons!!!
OH MY GOODNESS!!!!! THESE ARE SO PRETTY AND I AM SO LUCKY TO HAVE THEM! Thank you Lori! I cannot wait to do some projects with these!
