15 Minutes of Fame

How exciting is this?

I am the famer this week at Unpubbed. I have never been published in any magazine or book.

I'm pretty convinced that my style is not what they are looking for in a professional publication. That's cool with me, I just like to make stuff that I like.

I am so psyched about this though. I remember when I started really scrapping and I found this site. I was all like, that's so cool. Maybe someday I could be up here. And today I am!

I think it is extrememely cool that some peeps are going to use a LO that I made as inspiration for their own pages. You should totally check it out because it looks like there is a swank prize in the offing.

So, yesterday I left work early to go to my doctor. I have been feeling pretty bad the last few days and I told her my symptoms and she told me to go to the ER. So, three exams, two blood draws, an IV, an injection and a CT scan later, I still feel awful and they don't exactly know what is wrong with me. The good news is that I am not in immediate danger of dying. The bad news is is that they don't know what's really wrong with me and now I have a huge medical bill to deal with.

So, instead of showing you a photo of my hand in an IV, or how I look right now (baaad), I will share with you a photo I took earlier yesterday. The photo above is my desk shelf at work. Even at work I like being surrounded by things that inspire me. And boy can I tell you how much I love the new Winter Phase I mugs? I also got a matching notebook that I am completely in love with. Ah Starbucks Art Department, someday I will work for you....

Thank you to everyone that has looked at the Postcard project. I am heartily encouraged by all of your support. I look forward to seeing your creations soon as well.

Congrats on being the Famer this week!! I LOVE your page. We just moved from Seattle, and let me tell ya, coffee just ain't coffee when it's not served in Seattle.

There is an actual store called "Seattle Espresso" here in Phoenix and they don't even know what a GRANITA is!!! Hello? And they have the nerve to put Seattle in their name...shame shame.

Anyways, drink an extra one for me today!!
