Dear Staci -

This looks fantastic!! Good going!! It took me this long to figure out what I had functional - all my CafePress shop items. Is it too late to add a mug? I know it might be hard in the slideshow .. can I just be in the items listed down? If not, I sure understand ... trying to get back up to speed here.

So sorry to take so long on your reference ... everything got behind.

Take care and I hope you are great!!

Check my blog for the rules.:)


Staci Rose said...

Thanks everyone! I am lucky to be part of such a wonderful collective of artistic minds! :D

And, Torrie, thanks for the challenge. We all need to be kept on our toes!

I know what you mean! My kids helped reminded me of things about me that are a little different, but to me they seem totally normal and within reason. The hanger thing in the laundry room, I also keep my tubes of paint in little plastic trays in line on the shelf with colors from light to dark left to right--but the rest of the studio is a mess!

Thanks for playing, I have been tracing back all the different ones who have been tagged and reading their blogs, but I haven't found the start of the tag yet!
