Won a Giveaway – Journal from Colette Paperie


I entered in the Dwell Studios Giveaway that Colette Paperie was hosting on a whim.  I don’t enter that many give-a-ways because I only want to win things that I truly want to own and cherish.   When I saw the Dwell Studios Collection from Chronicle Books I had to enter!

As you know, I LOVE all things paper!

I was so happy to find out that I was a winner!    Even better?  Won the DwellStudio Labyrinth journal!  It just came in the mail today!   I can’t wait to use it.  However, I plan to save it until my new home studio is built!  Then I write about my unrestricted creativity and ideas when projects don’t need to be put away.  Thank you so much for the journal!My Album 3-028

I Can See Clearly Now!

I took the plunge and had laser eye surgery.  That’s right,  I paid for the privilege of having a high tech machine, point a laser directly at my head tor burn a layer of skin of both my eyes.

Coal Habour Eye Centre offered a reduced price special for their 10th anniversary.  Some research and positive feedback from relatives and friends.  I had the surgery 7 days ago. 

Okay, it’s still blurry but they are still healing. One temporary side effect is light sensitively. So I’ve been wearing my celebrity wannabe sunglasses on your right indoors.  That’s right, I look that arrogant!


Here’s the evolution of my eyewear. Believe it or not, I had even bigger pairs.  I looked like such a nerd

So am I glad I got my vision corrected?  Even only a week, Yes, I do.  It was worth it.  That and I can now be ‘cool’ Smile
