Been sick... and a little more!

Well, I couldn't sleep, so I thought I'd come upstairs and get something done... not sure what I'm trying to get done, but I'm working on a few new LOs...

Can you believe I got to participate in a "Local" crop in Sweden? LOL... I didn't go there physically, but I made some prizes for those that attended and those are going in the mail, plus if you've seen any cards I've ever created or designed, I put together a card kit together and ran a contest there at Grodans Scrapgarden... My "svenska" (aka Swedish) isn't that great, but I'm learning it slowly! :) Some of the words I can make out, but if I need a translator, I ask Marie to translate for me! I wish Babelfish had Swedish on their translator page!! Maybe Nordic languages are getting lost or becoming "old world" languages... I know French and Spanish, and understand a few Germanic words, but Swedish, is nothing like the "romantic languages" of French, Spanish and Italian... so... I try! Marie laughs at me from time to time saying that some of my words that I pronounce sound like I'm from "Stockholm" or north Sweden--hey, first, I'm American; secondly, when you're used to rolling your tongue for Castillian/Spanish, you kind of put a twist on some words, no?

So anyways, I'm waiting to see what cards were made for the contest! I'll try posting a few, along with the samples I made that these winners are going to get to make from their kit! WOW, did I pack the kit with all kinds of goodies!! I just hope they like them!!

The special gobstopper of a prize that I made has already been drawn, and I decorated a little pail (clear), and filled it with:
  • Heidi Swapp butterfly Mask
  • Tim Holtz blending tool and distressing ink pad
  • Heidi Swapp Ghost Shapes (Flowers) and some chipboards
  • Making Memories Brad
  • American Crafts Ribbon
  • Scrapbook Magazine
The winner was Carola!! She must have spent a bundle at Lucienne's store, because I think for every 100Kr (that's Swedish Crowns/Krona) you got to put your name in for the drawing!! Not sure what the exchange rate on the dollar is but I think it was like $1.oo U.S. = 6 or 7 Kr!!

Well, more info later!!

Oh yes...
INSIDE SCOOP!! The two girlies that I CT for have got some fabulous Christmas kits coming out!!

Hi Elise! Just wanted to say that I hope you are feeling better. I have been off work sick the last two days but it looks like you were a little more constructive with your time than I was. I did manage to setup this blogger account though. Guess that is something! LOL. :D
