Paying it forward

This is my friend Chelsea. We've actually never met...we're virtual pals. But we have plans of meeting, drinking margaritas, and hula hooping (don't ask). Soon.

Chelsea's shop, Eighty 8 Words, is open again just in time for Valentine's Day.
(There's even talk of a Diva pendant being added to the line!)



Advice from Chelsea: "Hey Fellas- there's a word in here for your gal! (Hint: don't pick hormonal, that's only funny if SHE chooses it) With V-day on the way, might I suggest that you blokes busy saving your cash for a ring worthy of her greatness, surprise her in the mean time with "betrothed."
Trust me, she'll melt."

Chelsea recently found out she was going to be the lucky recipient of a
brand-spankin'-new MacBook (gratis).

She's sharing the love and paying it forward, and I'm the lucky one this time. Chelsea created a new blog header for me (look up!) which prompted an entirely new look for my blog.

Huge thanks Chelsea! I'll be paying it forward, too.

Just found out an interview (of me!) is on the Green Leaf Reviewer blog today.

I noticed the header right off, fabulous. I know Chelea virtually as well, and her work is wonderful!

I took a couple photos of the finished table display and put them on Friday's post. I set up early, so there were only a few other tables decorated at the time. If you click on my photos, they'll enlarge and you'll be able to see a couple of the other displays (sort of). I didn't attend the function Friday night because the tickets were $40 each. I'm waiting to hear from the ladies at the Chamber to find out how it all went...
