That stands for Say It With Letters Design team...
I just finished up my first project(s) on Deb's design team. I was sent this set of wooden ornaments and given free rein to do with them as I pleased. After my initial idea, I scraped them, primed them and decided to go for the shabby look by using vintage wallpapers (mostly from Donna), glass glitter, lace, crepe paper, ball trim and more little doo-dads. I think they are super fun.

AND I hope you like them too because in celebration of my FORTIETH birthday ( next weekend) I am giving away the smaller two ornaments to some lucky commenter. So if you want to have a chance to win, please leave a comment or comments on my blog between now and next Saturday the 15th (my official birthday) and I will draw a name to win them! How is that for a birthday celebration??

As for now I am on my way to San Simeon where I will be spending the weekend with some of my best girls at this lovely hotel. I am taking my camera and a party spirit so hopefully I will have lots to share when I get back. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
