PS: If you want to watch something silly and amusing, here is a video of me playing a challenge/game during the British Isle Cruise this July. The rule? Do not answer the questions with the word "yes" and "no" within the 3-minute interview. I was actually one of the two winners out of 15 participants (gasp!!).
Prize? A blanket from Celebrity cruise! Priceless. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Pardon me, still giggling over the video. It's hard not to say yes or no during an interview but you absolutely nailed it. Good going, girl.
Just got this envelope liner set yesterday...can't wait to play with it. Of course, that will have to wait until I get things sorted out around here. By the way, yours look amazing.

Harriet said...
