happy, happy JOY!

I've been keeping a noodle and lou secret and I'm ready to tell you my happy, happy news!! I just received my copy of the September/October issue of Somerset Studio Magazine and I have seen it with my very own eyes!!! I have a little Halloween painting published in the Expressions section!!! eeeek! I'm sooo thrilled. AND my decorated envelope made the 'letters to the editor' section!!! Thank you wonderful Somerset Studio!! I love you to bits!!! Keep your eyes peeled...the issue will hit news stands soon! yahooOOooooooo!!!!!

and MORE happy, happy JOY for me...is this darling, I mean DARLING dollie that I received as a gift from my most special friend:):) I am the luckiest girl in the world. thank you to my sweet buddy! i mean, HELLO...is this doll not the cutest thing EVER? she is made by Crow Haven Farm . dying over how much I love her. ahhhhh!

okay...deep breaths. major excitement you guys! it all came at such a perfect time too. the boys have been sick most of the week. little lou has walking pneumonia and is on antibiotics. school starts next week! poor babies sick the last week of summer:( all i can say is thank goodness for the Wii!!

the etsy shop update got kinda squashed for this week due to the sickies. but i'm thinking Monday night! how about 8:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time! let's do it! I'll show you sneak peeks sometime Monday day:) there will be those mermaids i've mentioned and a few more treats. so, just to be official...
