So Exciting !!!!

I won - I won - I won

I'm so excited. I entered the Southern Girls Challenge competition last week, as I usually do, and my name was drawn out to win a prize. I'm so excited - as you can probably tell.

The Southern Girl Challenges' have helped me to get my mojo back and I'm starting to feel a lot more confident in myself and happy to experiment with more things. I think this is a brilliant site to follow because the talent that is being shared is amazing. I learn so much and am often in awe of the fantastic things these ladies come up with.

I'm going to have a go at the challenge this week - glitter - which will certainly be quite challenging for me. I'm not quite sure where to start yet, but I'm going to have a go and start at the beginning - probably more than once if I know myself.

I spent some time at Scrapaholics (it was called Arty Farty) last night doing some scrapping. The atmosphere was awesome - Cherie, who used to work for Scrapbook Studio, has started working there every Thursday night til 9 p.m. and on alternate Friday night crops. It's awesome having a fantastic place to go to get inspiration and positive guidance when things turn to custard (well, they might not turn to custard for you but they certainly do for me).

I'm really looking forward to spending more time at the shop. If you are in Auckland, do make the time to go and check it out - Scrapaholics, Moore Street, Howick (it's under Arty Farty in the phone book)

I'm going to head off now and make a start on the next challenge. Hope you are all participating or have participated in the challenge so I can see what you've created. Have a good week everyone :)
