Merry Christmas to Me!

I think you better all sit down right now... I haven't been able to craft since yesterday when I completely dismantled my craft-cave to install a new work surface and a duo of darling Ikea cabinets!!  That's kind of the bad news, because at 7:00 this morning I remembered I hadn't posted my Muse card for this week... big mistake because it was too late to do it this morning.  HOWEVER!! Therese, you are going to be sorely missed as a design team member - you have inspired me so many times, in so many ways - this one's for you, dear girl:


SOOOO when I went to the Muse blog to try to post my card - this is what I saw:


        The day we've all been waiting for has arrived! Our new DT member is
 
Michele Ferguson!
 
whAT???!!! AAACCCKKKKKKKK!!!
 
 [Perhaps I'm still sleeping?? 
If I can design cards while dreaming, maybe I can blog, too?]
 
Thank you, thank you!! to all of you that gave me your vote - I do hope I can inspire you in some little way - see you there on
January 12th, 2015!!??

CONGRATS Michele!!! ❤️❤️❤️👍👍👍
I am so very happy to see your name on the DT. So well deserved!
You have inspired me with so many of your creations, but, as you know I am away from my craft room too. I am looking forward to all your future creations and inspirations from your new studio!
Big hugs to you, Chriss

Thank you so much, Chriss... you are so dear. I am thinking of you! "Studio" is a bit extravagant a word for my portion of the guest room - but it will be wonderful - I'll send you photos!

I jumped for joy when I saw your name, Michele. I didn't even know you had applied. But then why not. You do some amazing things that will inspire others. Congratulations, my friend. I'm so happy and excited for you. I'm also jealous of your new design space. Cleanable (as in from paint and glue) surface is what I need in mine.

icardeveryone01 said...

Once again, come craft with me anytime, Bobby - how are you at putting furniture together?
