A big Thank You to Tim and Mario

Hey everyone! I hope all have been well
since my last post.
So, I don't know if you heard, but I was one of
the winners of Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2013!
Yes, indeedie. My July tag was chosen.
I didn't even know at first, because I hadn't checked
Tim's blog that day. But my views on this blog
were going through the roof, and I didn't
know why.
Then, like sunrays through the clouds,
(insert angels singing here) 
I remembered the August tag should be posted
and that means the winners of the July tag
would be announced.
So, as I scrolled down the instructions for
August's tag I held my breathe.
By the way, did you happen to notice how long that bad boy was! I almost passed out!
Okay, so you probably know the rest, I saw my name,
screamed so loud my off-to-college-next-week daughter actually came out of her room to see what was going
on. I immediately emailed Mario (just in case my name
was on the list by mistake) my information
and thanked him profusely.
Now the story gets really good.
A few days later my husband brought
in a manila envelope and
asked me, "What did you buy now?"
Oh no, I got caught again, but wait, I hadn't
ordered anything (recently).
I now held in my possession the most secret,
most coveted of all happy mail any artist could
hope for . . . . a Tim Holtz prize!
I will now reveal to you the contents of that
manila envelope.
So, as you can see, I was sent a
Tim Holtz Idea-ology apron, Industrial Blueprint
stamp set, and of course, I'm keeping the bit of
music tissue paper.
Well, I'm still very excited about this whole
adventure, and would like to THANK everyone
who sent me congratulatory comments and nice
words on my tag! Thank you so much. I hope you
come back often to see what's going on here!
And last, but not least, THANK YOU to Tim
and Mario for doing all they do for us! 
I truly appreciate you both!
P.S.  About five seconds after opening this package, I ordered the Air Travel
stamp set!  Shhh, don't tell my husband.
