Make My Day a Winner!

I was thrilled to hear that I had won the giveaway from ME Monday over at The Cherry Chick
As this was my first time linking up it was a huge surprise.
  I give credit to my lucky number.



For those of you who think this is all about ME,  let me clarify –
the real ME is Mary Engelbreit.

The real Cherry Chick  is Vicki in Tampa who is a big fan of ME as well an incredible artist in her own right.

On Mondays you can link up your ME related post and share the joy.
My new joy includes SOCKS


which I may wear to meet up with some friends from high school next month.

Thank you Vicki!

I was so excited and had an energy burst which I decided to use  cleaning up my mess which led to more excitement when I rediscovered these

beautiful journals.


Yes, they are ME designed. 
So I will again link up on Monday at the Cherry Chick for ME Monday. 
Please join us.

Did you notice the black and white checker pattern on each journal?
(another hint at my checkered past)

I am sure I paid a quarter, at most, for the one with a pen.
It is the perfect size to fit into a bag or pocket.
The larger one was a bit more  but you know I never pay msrp.

Since this was a new adventure for me, and I met some new friends and am always looking to discover new blogs and interesting people and stories, I am linking up to Alicia’s Homemaking for
Try New Adventures Thursday.
