Housekeeping before company comes...


Cranberry background



recent journal page awaiting words; reminds me of cranberry sauce. 


There isn't really any company coming...


I wanted to step in and thank the following lovely ladies for extending these awards to me recently. I really appreciate the recognition! Blog awards really  mean a lot to me...and they really helped put a smile back on my face this week. We're having pretty rough days in Casa de Luggage...so these emails are a welcome distraction.


Kreativ_Blogger_Award      Thank you, Christine!


Kreativ_Blogger_Award     Thank you, Toni!


Proximityaward   Thank you, Trish!


Proximityaward   Thank you, Serena!


I nominate everyone on my favorite link list for these awards....seriously. I think you are all fantastic. Feel free to put these buttons on your blog and if anyone asks, tell em' Julie's passing out nice awards!


Now about my link list....I am so embarrassed..seems my html was disrupted or something. More than half of my favorite links have gone missing...and I don't know why! I am trying my best in between everything to get everyone back onto the list...so please, if you notice your link is missing, please let me know and I will gladly get it back onto the list!


Some of you have asked about getting prints of my digital work. Well, I cannot offer them straight from my home considering it would take about 40 print sales to recoup the money for the printer..so I have to do things the old fashioned way and continue to save money before I can buy the printer out right. In the meantime, I can upload the prints to imagekind and you can purchase professional grade prints, giclee canvas in many different sizes as well as cards. The link to my imagekind gallery is on the right, so feel free to take a look if you're interested.


I think that is all for now... to all my friends in bloglandia, I hope you have a beautiful Thanksgiving!
