I'm Full of Good News

As I was thinking about today's blog post I am remembering all my blessings and they seem to keep multiplying. So today's post is about Blessings with a few other items thrown in.

First I won the 12 day of Christmas Tag over at Tim Holtz's Blog. Look at what I won:

I nearly gave myself a heart attack when I saw my post very first on the list. What a blessing from Tim Holtz. The tags are still up. Tim has given permission for any one to download these tags and teach them in classes. Way to go Tim.

Okay, more blessings. I've known this one for a little bit but I was saving it for a special occasion to tell. Sommerset Memories will be publishing one of my canvas called "the boys" in their summer issue. Oh, you can know there will be a great Dare then. This is one of my resolutions this year and Sommerset Memories is my favorite of all time magazines.

More blessings. Fiskateer Betsy became a personal shopper for me at the Fiskars Warehouse sell. I sent her some money to play with. Holy Moley. I have three 15 x 15 boxes slam full (one I could not even pick up) of fiska-goodies. Some of these products I did not know existed. I have everything from children's tools to charm bracelets to embellishments, rub ons, clip ons, mini-books to die for, an idea book for the shape cutter (wowzier on the ideas), glitter gel, scissors and it never ends. The value of these products is 10 times what I paid for them. WOW! Thanks Betsy for being such a blessing.

Again with the Blessings. I had been having some physical problems over the past few months that I could not figure out what it was. I thought at times it was extremely serious. It was scary. I went to the doctor Friday and he announced it was just a bit of anxiety. I have to tell you I was relived...big time. I thought I was heading for a stroke. I desperately do not like the shopping that accompanies the holiday season. So as soon as January comes things will settle down and get back to normal.

Another Blessing. I found one roommate for CHA. I'm still looking for two more to share the expense. So if you are going there is room. The hotel is walking distance from the convention center and has free breakfasts. You can contact me at DeborahL591@yahoo.com. Obviously, I will only room with people I've known for a bit. LOL

Okay the BIGGY blessing. I'm reneging on a deal. I told my daughter I would not post any photos. But just one and please forgive me Tabby. For us the news begins Thursday at lunch when David asked my husband to lunch for a "chat." Oh, we were guessing then. Now it's Friday. David and Tabitha are in Charleston, walking along the beach when he turns to face Tabby and goes down on one knee. Details are sketchy here (they are for their hearts and memories). My beautiful little girl who has become my loving, beautiful daughter is now engaged to be married to her life long love David. I'm crying. She's so happy and my heart is singing for her and my soon to be new son David. They both have my heart. Thank you David for making this moment so very special for my daughter. I'll get Tabitha to write something for you and post it as a guest here on Debby's Dare. Right now I can't stop crying.

BTW: Adam and Ashely are getting married in May 2010 on the beach. Tabitha and David want to get married in May 2010 on the beach. Two different beaches. LOL 2010 may be the year of insanity.

Wow, Am I blessed? Overwhelmingly so. Whew, I could hardly get through typing that last blessing.
