  2. Fridays always make me happy, but when I got home from work today and went on-line to check my e-mail – my Friday just got exceptional. How exciting to make the top 10. Very exciting. Thanks to you and your fun site to make all the fun happen. I think all of us with creative blogs would love to work at The Martha Stewart Crafts Dept. It must be a fun and inspiring place to work – plus they get paid to make things all day.
    Thanks for having the contest. I look forward to linking up to many more.
    My best – Diane
