Memory Board Winner and a Board of my Own

Exciting news: Glamour chose Kristin as Today’s Best Dressed Reader. She’d love it if you would stop by and show your support!

Remember that fabulous memory board giveaway from The Cherry Blossom Sisters?  Well I am happy to announce we have a winner! Lacretia of Ready Heart!  Lacretia  send us an email with your contact info. when you have a chance.

And…speaking of memory board, last week I took a memory board making class at Paper Source with my friend Cait.  I had never taken a class at Paper Source and we had a great time!  I definitely plan on taking more classes in the future (Cait..still up for “Wrapture”?!) and some even serve wine.  Sadly Memory Board making did not serve vino but perhaps they had the board’s best interest in mind.  So while it’s not as luxe as a number from the Cherry Blossom Sisters, and it’s clearly paper, not fabric, a la Paper Source, I do think I won the award for boldest paper choice, ha!
