Thank You Universe!

My mother and I have been talking about going on a trip to Belgium and Holland for a while. Why those countries and not France or Germany? Simple. We used to have pen pals in Belgium and have always been intrigued by that country. And Holland, well a lot of the paper crafts we do originated there. Well, like I said we've been talking about it for a while and my father said, yesterday, that he'll pay for both our plane tickets if we go next summer (2008) and we pay for all other expenses. Okie dokie! No problemo! So there it is... I asked, the Universe answered (I asked to travel and still have more than enough money to pay all other bills and expenses.) Isn't it amazing?

I bought Living the Creative Life and can't wait to start reading it. Amongst other artists, Violette is featured in this book. I also bought Altered Books Workshop which I've been wanting for a while. I've never actually tried to do altered books and this is sure to get me started (like I really need a new hobby!)

Friday night, I went to Catherine's for a crop session. I managed to start 4 Christmas cards, 3 of which are completed and one awaiting completion. We had fun. It was past 1am when I left! And she loved the goodies I brought her! ;-) Definitely will do this again.

Now I'll go create something (and finish that 4th xmas card.) Ciao!

It sounds like a great summer is coming up.
Cards...I've been making cards, but they're kinda blah right now. I am going to go and click on your link and look.
