I waaan! I waaaan!*

*back in the days, BH (before Husband), I spent some time as an au-pair in Ireland. The smallest boy in the family had this hilarious habit of racing me and then exclaiming "I wan! I wan!". When i tried correcting him, by saying "No, hunny, it's 'I WON'" he got very upset with me, gave me the death stare and firmly stated. "No! _I_ won!"

Anyhow... I just thought I'd share something that made me VERY happy:
I actually won TWO of the Scraplagret crop-challenges! I am utterly and completely stunned, and blown away. There were SO many amazing pieces of art entered in the contests, I never even dreamed I'd win one, let alone two! It sure made me SMILE though! Thanks a bunch to the Scraplagret DT and owner for a fab crop, and for picking me! ♥

Another thing that makes me happy:
A hairdresser who (very skillfully) chops off my "woolly hat" and offers me to drop by inbetween cuts to get it thinned out, since it's crazy thick and grows like weeds. Best bit? She offered this as a service, free of charge... Whaaaat? Seriously? I think I might love that girl. ;)
(She just got herself a steady new customer, that's for sure!)

A third thing that makes me happy:
this cat.
...and thinking back to the the KOMA craft marathon here I made the LO.
(For a "wedding challenge": something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. I borrowed a stamp, the daisy flowers are old, I had just bought the glassine envelopes + more... and you can see the blue, can't you? ;))



Thanks for popping by!
Have a great week!
xoxo,
Z
