So Excited

myDealCompass sponsored a map/compass project contest over at Fireflies & Jellybeans last week, and my Map Wall Art was picked as one of the 3 finalists!
Tutorial here

Can you believe it?  There were some really incredible projects in the running, including Suesan's unbelievably gorgeous map covered settee, which would have gotten my vote had it been in the finals.  But since it's not in the finals, I'd love it if you popped over to Fireflies & Jellybeans to vote for my project.

In other exciting news, I received this gorgeous print of Fountain's Abbey from Kat at Low Tide High Style.  I'm on the hunt for the perfect frame.  It'll be going in my new craft room / office space on a wall of inspirational images.  Kat is an amazing photographer and has an incredible gallery of images of wildlife, flowers, and architecture.  If you're a lover of beautiful photography, you need to check her out.

Thanks for popping in and checking out the excitement around here.
