Good Morning! I am here today solely to spread peanut butter...erm...love.

My blogger friend Holley Barnhart does this thing every February. She celebrates life, and the love of art! She had a very debilitating condition, and some years ago went through a dangerous proceedure to correct it! I admire her courage greatly! Instead of celebrating just one day in February, she celebrates the whole month!

What she does specifically is this. She posts beautiful inspiring photos of her fabulous work every day in February and draws names from the comments left on the posts. To the names drawn she sends fantastic envelopes full of wonderful goodies! It's kinda like Christmas all over again!

I make it a point to check up on holleybarnhartsblog.blogspot.com almost every day, but during February I just can't wait to see the next post! It's so much fun to watch the list of winners grow, and to read the comments of excitement and anticipation everyone leaves! Even if my name were never drawn again, I would visit just for that!

My name was drawn a few times this year. I am so thrilled! It is so exciting to anticipate a surprise. And it is always a surprise! She never just puts the prize in the envelope and calls it good. Nooo...she stuffs that envelope so full of stuff it practically BURSTS out when you open it!

My package arrived yesterday! I took a photo of the contents, and will share it now.

It contained a few sheets of rub-ons, which I really love to use! They are fun to transfer onto projects! There are a couple of sheets of word stickers...they will come in VERY handy! Washi tape...I have an ongoing LOVE AFFAIR with Washi tape. I can't seem to get enough of it and I use it all the time! Some teeny tiny gems in a box...they will be fun to use too. There is also a beautiful stamp with a butterfly that says 'Every possibility begins with the courage to imagine'. I love it! There is a whole pile of string wrap closures, and I am very excited about those! I have always created those myself, and I am looking forward to seeing what they are actually supposed to look like! She drew my name for a grand prize again this year too! It is a beautiful book making template from c-thru Ruler company! I will use the heck out of that! I have already promised a sweet little boy in my neighborhood a new story book just for him! Finally...last but most touching...Holley sent me 3 chunks of beautiful LACE! I don't know if it is from her famous Istanbul stash or not, but it is very pretty, and I am excited to use some!

Thank you so much Holley! I am so happy to celebrate another year with you, and so thankful for the beautiful gifts! May you celebrate many more years, and give away mountains of delicious goodies to your followers!
