Marvelous Monday Update 5/3/2010

I am in my last couple of weeks of International Business. I have to say it's been quite the interesting class, but I think it is the instructor that makes it so. She is young, well-educated, and has traveled around the world.

Last week, I forgot to share some awesome news. I went to see the counselor before I chose next semester's class(es) and found out I have 8 classes remaining before I complete my BS degree. I was working toward a double major in Business Administration and Accounting.

I found out that if I take the right electives, I can actually complete a third major... in Finance. I about fell over!

Kokeshi Doll is now being featured on the StitchN-Chat homepage. How cool is that?!

Last week, Carol of iStitch asked what I used to cut my mats. I don't have the money or space to have a machine (boy, how great that would be!), but I do have mat cutting hand tools.

I bought these about 15 years ago from Michaels. They're pricey but since I'm a photographer and a stitcher, they've paid for themselves many times.

I also have one of these for mat cutting. It cuts circles and ovals.

Jennifer over at Feathers in Nest is hosting a giveaway in celebration of Mother's Day. Hop on over to check it out.

Edgar is also hosting a giveaway. He's celebrating his 3rd year blogversary. Surf over to Blacksheep's Bit of the Web and wish him happy blogversary!

Thank you all for your comments in regards to my blog. It was very intriguing as to what my readers found interesting about my blog. :) I put the names in a "hat" and drew one by hand. The winner of the giveaway is........

>> Sharmila (mbroider) <<

Congratulations, Sharmila!
