  8. Victoria,

    Congrats to being featured in a magazine! I've never seen it before but it looks like one I could get lost in for hours. The projects you share certainly make it worth the read! I am going to be making some ornaments, tags and snow globes.

  23. I didn't see your give away until now but better late than never. I "liked" your new page on facebook. I have just been so busy, like everyone else but would love to win a magazine with your creations inside. I have been making some recycled can Christmas ornaments. I have them on my blog and also listed on Etsy....
