good news....

Hi all i hope you all had some form of great news today -- looks like its shaping up to be a fabulous 2008 all round for most people that i know. I had a great phone call today from the secretary from the peeps's gym - the grant that I submitted at the end of september , well i did not get it in the first submission-- but it automatically got subbed a second time at the end of december -----well drum roll----- D rang and let me know that we had a pretty hefty cheque to order some much needed equipment for the kids --- whoooppeeee -- i am so excited -- i think i even used some expletives that i shouldn't have when she let me know - cause i was sooooo excited....now my great editor in chief who helped me put the grant together with wording -- my DH -- is celebrating with me too tonight --- still so excited and can't wait to order the equipment first thing next week.
On other great news - I sent of a mini album for SM for a beyond the page submission - very exciting that one -- its not set in stone yet - so fingers are crossed still.

Had a very laxi daisy day today - not much done, usual housewife stuff - Dh is on the last few days of his holiday and goes back to work monday.

i cleared a space on the craft desk for me to get myself more organised for next weeks onslaught - i have to organise a couple of classes for a shop i teach at - should be an interesting week no doubt. And the little baby below is a sculpted doll i started mid last year--- yes she is one of my many UFO's - but i have vowed to have her finished by easter -- i just have to make her some wings and dress her all pretty with clothes and beads and then she will be all done - my little fairy yoga doll...

stay safe and have a great weekend

Hi Tracey,

Well done on your grant, the kids will be excited when they get some new equipment.

I love your doll and can;t wait to see the finished project.

PS Coaster Art, I am thinking is he a donkey? Very cute.

Great start to the new year.

Love Pam
