WOO HOOOO!!  Monday newbie party at Debbie Doo's!!  How is everyone doin'?  I am so jerked up, because I have tons to say, but don't want to take up too much of your time!!  OK.  Here goes!!

FIRST, I have to tell you that I won a gorgeous necklace  at Debbie Doos Giveaways!! HA!!  Go ME!  I've never won anything!!  I am soo totally excited to wear it!!  Check it out.
I told you!!  You can find one like it at
OK, Next, I bought a new washer and dryer.  That's awesome, but not the best part of my journey to home improvement hell.  I stopped over in the paint aisle and got all of these free paint swatches!
I follow Julie's Art Journal Everyday Blog, and a prompt she threw out for us is about color.  She has tons of inspiring ideas all the time, but for some reason, this one REALLY grabbed me!!  I am going to incorporate these paint swatches into a "color journal".  I'm really interested in exploring color more and now, I'm ready to roll!!  See my "Art Journal Wednesday" post this week to see what I've done!!
And finally, I has a wonderful visitor this weekend.  Gabriela Delworth.  She is a wonderful artist, who does such beautiful work!!  She has a blog and a website, and she is coming out with a book this Friday!  SO, she is having a party!!  Join the party and you could win a signed copy of her book!!  I think her work is awesome and I can't wait to see what delights are in her book!!  Please come check her out if you can!!

Thanks soooo much for visiting!!  Please check out the other newbies blogs too!! And, if you wouldn't mind, Please be a friend of my blog!!  I LOVE new friends, I promise to follow you back!!

Have fun!
