Thank you!

Good morning! First off, thank you for all of your wonderful comments on the giveaway! It seriously has warmed my heart, made me smile and completely encouraged me as I've read each and every one of your comments. It has been so much fun to see what you would do with each - so inspiring! It is exciting to me how many creative people are out there, whether you are just getting started or are a veteran. There are always more ideas and inspiration to discover, more exciting things to find and I am so excited to begin visiting each of your blogs that are listed :) Truly, thank you again for the comments and excitement about the giveaway- I am humbled by the response and wish I could send everyone something! :)
Here is a reminder about the giveaway (NOTE: International comments are very welcome!) and below is recipe day.... a day late ;) I have also been receiving emails and convos on etsy about purchasing paper scrap packs- my hope is to get some more big packs (50-75 pieces) together by this weekend and into the shop (if you can't wait to hear if you're a winner, you can go ahead and order one and it will ship asap :)). I will be listing more of the mini packs (25 pieces) this morning - I put those together right away and ship (usually same day) as soon as they are ordered. Have a fabulous day! :)Streusel Topped Muffins
