Before I get to today's project, I need to announce the winner's of my blog celebration give away. Without further delay:
Hi Mona, great prizes and congrats on passing 1000 followers! That's quite an accomplishment but not a surprise given your talent and the way you inspire people! My motivation is the fun and joy of creating something out of "nothing"! I'm still, to this day, overjoyed when I complete a project and it looks beautiful!
Hope you have a wonderful vacation, Mona! Thanks for the opportunity to win! I'm always motivated by the grand feeling I get when I finish a project and it looks good! Thanks!
Thanks so much to all those who took the time to leave such sweet comments sharing what motivates you to create! Ladies, PLEASE email me no later than Wednesday, July 27th 11:59pm Eastern.
