Happy 1 Year Blogiversary Mimi!

My friend Mimi started a blog one year ago at the urging of some of her friends. She is celebrating this one year anniversary with a giveaway of some very pretty things she has made and a few surprises thrown in. Run right over to her blog and enter for a chance to win....but while you're there, take some time to read her posts and look over her beautiful projects. We met a few years ago when I was working at our local scrapbook store, which has since closed. We both taught classes and as we got to know each other, a solid friendship was formed based on mutual addictions, like scrapbook paper, embellishments and rubber stamps! We still share our love of paper crafts and we have also added "junking" to our list of activities. We can often be found very early on Saturday mornings, newspaper in hand, coffee for Mimi, GPS on the dashboard, trolling the local neighborhood garage sales or flea markets, hoping for the perfect treasure. After we exhaust our wallets or our resources, we usually stop somewhere for breakfast and to discuss our findings for the day. Some day we might even take our cameras and snap some pictures to show you....but it will have to be a day when we have actually showered and combed our hair!!!
Mimi is a very talented woman and I'm happy to call her friend! Way to go Mimi!
