Happy saturday!

Hello!
I am back in blog land (sort of)!! I have been in my studio the whole week working on my class and other things... and THIS weekend I want to show you a little (tiny) teaser of the class (see the picture)... PLUS i am busy making a mini album (one of the class projects) that's totally freaking me out (from excitement) that I want to give away as a RAK to a commenter! It will be ready for you just to add your pictures and thoughts. The only thing is I cannot post a picture (i really really want to) otherwise I am going to spoil the fun for my class. Let me just say, if someone mailed me this little thingy, I would squeal with delight!! he-he. I am terrible, i know!

We are going to IKEA on Monday... I am counting the sleeps!!! I love Ikea for all the wonderful projects I find there to alter and expand creatively on. I really is my favorite shop in the whole world!! : ) Please play along and make my heart happy! Just leave a comment and I will draw a name on Tuesday!

A thought for today: Romans 10 The word that saves is right here, as near as the tongue in your mouth, as close as the heart in your chest.

lots of love
Wilna

Greetings Wilna! I usually just lurk on your blog but when I read that there may perhaps be a chance of me winning a RAK and being able to squeal well gosh I just had to post a comment! =) I enjoy the scriptures that you post as well. Thank you...
Blessings,

Hi Wilna!
I have never left a comment on anyone's blog before, but the thought of winning a mini-book that YOU'VE created has motivated me to write. I love reading your blog. I check it almost every day. It's very inspiring both spiritually and artistically. I've never seen another one like it!
Cheers and blessings,
Kathy

I hope you have a great time at Ikea, and thank you for the scripture :) Can't wait to see what you're working on!

Mickey said...

Love checking in on your blog and seeing your creative work. I have some of your hearts from a previous give away and love working them into a layout! Ikea is fun and will enter into your RAK with hopes of the prize! :)

We just got an IKEA in March, and the one time I went I was completely flabbergasted by how wonderful it was! Of course we ate lunch there, and then I had to run home and search the internet for recipes for the cookies we had eaten, lol. Notice: you hunger for items to scrap and alter; I hunger for cookies!

Have fun, but don't blow the entire budget in one day!

Dena said...

I adore the lil sneak peeks you have up!
I am trying to talk my man into hauling me up to IKEA as well. I desperately need the EXPEDIT shelves. *sigh*
Have fun on your shopping excursion :)

Tricia Wilson said...

Oh my, a Wilna original and an opportunity to squeal with delight. You've got my attention! Have fun at Ikea, I love that store.

Lia B said...

Ahhh! So exciting & fun...hope I win...and as always, your work is lovely! I went to IKEA for the first time this past week in Atlanta and almost died from excitement...my poor husband almost died from exhaustion! =) Have a great week!

Carolyn said...

Hi Wilna,
I've been to your classes, I'm sure the album is out of this world......you're the best.........

Sophia said...

Hi, you are so lucky to have a Ikea to go to, wish there was one in SA. Cannot wait to see the album you made...I am sure it is a beauty as always!!!

MichelleJ said...

Your projects are always so yummy ~ How often do people send YOU things? Have fun at IKEA. Wish there was one close, probably good for my budget there isn't!

Mike and Brianna said...

Ohhh...IKEA. I don't have one close enough to me. I have only been to IKEA once and I had to ship anything I bought so couldn't get much. Have fun!

Karey said...

Ok here I sit on pins and needles for a chance to win one of your originals. Since I am not gifted with design, the just add pictures sound great.
Thanks for the wonderful chance.

Yeeeaaaahhhhh! Ikea is just SO cool!

Oh how I love IKEA to, just wish I had one closer! Okay maybe it is a good thing that I don't have one close because if I did I would spend WAY to much money!!

As I have walked thru my mother's cancer diagnoses and treatments with her these past months, it has been a help to have come across your blog. thankyou...
