A week ago or so (I tend to lose track of days, don't get me started on weeks!) Melanie over at Bloggy Giveaways hosted her quarterly carnival. Needless to say, once again I didn't pull it together to join on the giving but you can bet your Aunt Tooty I joined in on the winning. Or rather, trying to win. And, lo and behold, I did! I entered many, and won Shannon's over at Rocks in My Dryer - and btw, read her, really! I love her and always get a chuckle, a lift or something to make me stop and think (also, she has a new sweet niece, another family touched by adoption). I won a gift certificate to Lisa Leonard Designs! I have to say, I have wanted one of these since the very first time I saw them, two or so years ago. Simply beautiful!
Here is what I finally (and really, she has so many beautiful designs it took me several days to decide!) decided on. It's called Riveted Flower. She has a both heart and a star that is similar, I had a hard time deciding between the two. Engraving on mine will say
Emi Victoria 2-2-2007. I can't wait to get it.
I had wanted something on it that had her Forever Day on it (10/29/2007) but I am thinking that maybe (just maybe) I will get myself something then especially for that day. She has so many (so many! I have I said that yet?) great pieces that I know I won't be able to limit myself to just one. This one, wow! It continues to be my favorite, I just haven't come up with what I want it to say. It's in the Something Simple line (as is the one that's on it's way to me). This one is called The Open Circle. It's the piece that made me fall in love with Lisa's designs. I know I will have this one someday. Soon, I hope! I also love the simple circles she has, the dog tags are fun and cute, her new Bloom is amazing, the birds, the flowers. Yes, I could go on and on. No, this is not a paid endorsement (well, except for winning the giveaway, but this post is not required, I am just this in love with her goodies!).
Thanks so much to both Shannon and Lisa (and Melanie for hosting!).
