My creation made it to top three at the first ever ICR challenge. Very pleased with this honour. Many thanks to Asha, Tejal and Sudha for managing the ICR site- I know it takes a lot of time and effort. Please know that your initiative is well appreciated and your work is loved much by us crafters in the blogging world. I dont think we say it enough. THANKS LADIES!!! Now I have to figure out how to add this to my sidebar.

This beautiful bejeweled peacock award came my way through Tejal. Thanks much, Tejal for the award. That’s one stunning peacock, dont you think. Very happy to receive this award.

I would like to pass on this award to the first three comments on this post. Seems fair to me. People who take the time and effort to come here and leave comments deserve something nice in return. So if you are the first three comments on this blog then please accept this award. You deserve it.

I am still a bit under the weather. Not liking it a bit. I am just resting through this icky bug. It helps that my son is at a all day workshop and my daughter is at my mom’s for two days. Will get some naps during the day. Hopefully that and a few heavy doses of meds will get me outta this funk. To top it all, I havent ventured into the studio space for more than a week. I’d borrowed some stamps from Shobana with the idea of working on them while she was out of station. She’ll be back today and I havent touched her stamps. Guess will have to ask for an extension on the borrow-ment!!

Happy summer day everyone!
