  2. First of all, Congratulations. What an honor. I must admit I found your blog from the announcement of the Masters. I am looking forward to seeing what you creative ones do with your up coming assignments! As far as tv, I enjoy vegging for an hour or so and watch similiar shows Burn Notice, LOST for sure, Psych 'cause he is such a nut. And now since the Olympics are on and late night tv is preempted I have been watching the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Oh my, what a crack up! I have to tevo it when I can not stay up - because he has me in stitches! Again, Congratulations! - Susan B.

  22. Congrats, you rock Vee! bet you didn't expect such a bright light at the end of the work tunnel last week, hee! I know you will have a great time with the wonderful team at MMM and it'll be a fantastic experience for you. I am so inspired by your work that I've introduced you to my scrapping friends in Asia. I've also put a link to your blog on mine. I am looking forward to Grey's and Lost, but with a one-year old son, I will settle for snippets here and there and for friends to fill in the gaps. {kim}

  33. Congratulations! You so deserved this. So, what is on my mind? I am thinking of how I am going to manage to get my three kids ready for school, in the car and to their three different schools on time. My husband usually does this but he is in Atlanta waiting for his daughter to give birth to #5 and her first girl. I know I can manage, but I do have MS and sometimes it tries to get in my way. I just need to keep on with my Mantra: I have MS but MS does not have me.
    Have a groovy week!
