Super duper happy news!

I'm so happy today for so many reasons:

First I got picked as a senior DT member for the pixie cottage.
Wohooo to me :)

Second: Since march has 5 weeks I will be a guest designer for the whiff of joy challenge blog for one more week. Yey! Here's what I made for this week with Bev's sketch:

I wanted to be as versatile as possible with style and colourchoices. Although I have only been using Alison Acton's images. For my last week I think I'll use something by Elisabeth Bell...

 Third: I got to play with a sweetpea stamp from the new release. It is so gorgeous and a bit different from the other stamp. Just as stunning though. I'm really pleased with how my card turned out too. Can't show it to you yet, but soon...Also, there is a SALE going on at the sweetpea shop through march 28:th. You can get some full sheets for only $13(normal price is low too, only $18) and some single stamps for $4 (normal price $5.25. And did you know there is a new challenge blog for all us sweetpea lovers?

Fourth: I finally started trying to crochet my first amigurumi. I'm so impressed. You maybe thought I could pull it off, but I was doubting and actually swearing a couple of times. Ooops. I just couldn't resist when I saw the pattern in a book I borrowed from the library. It's a dachshund! And it's so adorable and full of personality. Right now I'm just trying on some pink yarn, but tomorrow I'm planning to get some shiny brown/red yarn I saw in a shop today. Didn't want to buy it without knowing if I could understand the pattern. But i kind of did and now I want to make myself a doxie to resemble the one I had when I was younger.

And finally: I got 1-5-0 follwoers!!! Wowza, really? Oh my gosh. I never would've imagined. I know I lured some of you with candy. Hopefully you'll come back. Now there are people actually reading my ramblings, so I have to watch it, lol

I also just changed my profile photo. Thought it was about time you saw what I look like. I do look a little snobbish though :D I'm really not at all. Let's call it poise ;)
And I'm planning on having tutorial thursdays and tip tuesdays (or the other way around). Not sure if I will be able to do it on a weekly basis, but at least I can give it a go. Now I'm off to make something more. Hmmm...crochet the pooch, knit my vest, sew more, make my necklace or more many wonderful things to do and so little time ;)
