..i know some great people..

I really do. And I wanna mention them, because tooting someone else's horn is fun :)

First up is my pal Miss Nymfie. Me loves her :) One day we are totally going to hang out in real life. I'm working on it Nymfie, just keep the crafting table warm for me :) She bestowed this great award on me..

You know you gotta pass these awards along, so this award goes out to all of the ladies participating in my Halloween Swap. You girls rock, and I cannot wait to see what all of you create! :)

A few weeks ago Marichelle had a giveaway on her blog for this book, and I won..

The book was supposed to come from the publisher. But apparently they forgot about me. So Marichelle sent me a copy herself! How sweet is that? It wasn't her problem, but she didn't want me to be disappointed. Thanks Marichelle, you're awesome :)

And then last, but definitely not least, Brittany had a giveaway on her blog as well, asking what everyone's favorite cupcake flavor was. Mr. Random picked my number, and I got this pretty little package in the mail..

It was so pretty! I almost didn't want to open it.. almost. This is what that beautiful wrapping contained..

Woot! I love baking, and I love Martha. So I definitely love it when you put the two together :) But it didn't stop there. Brittany felt bad for not getting it to me sooner. (Um, I wouldn't have complained if it came on Christmas Day without a cover, lol!) But Brittany is a sweetheart, and took my answer from her giveaway, and sent me this..

Are you seeing what it says on that card? Do you know what magicalness comes from the Bangarang Bake Shop?

Cupcakes in a Jar! Be still my heart. What you're looking at right there is a strawberry cupcake in a jar, mailed to me, ready to devour. It gets better..

Look at all. that. frosting. Isn't it beautiful? And it's a lot! I mean, bigger than your average cupcake. I actually ended up sharing a couple of bites with the hubbo.

So I just wanted to tell you ladies thank you for being great people. Sometimes "thank you" is under-appreciated, because it's said so much. But I really do mean it, from my little heart. Thank you :)
