She is requesting as many people as possible follow the link to the Animal Planet website and nominate Bernie Berlin as "the hero of the year". Claudine provides all the information you need to do the nomination.
If you're not familiar with Bernie and A Place to Bark, please go to her website and blog, and read about her, watch the videos and then nominate her. http://www.aplacetobark.com/
I had the pleasure of meeting Bernie a couple years ago and knew immediately that she had a big heart and a loving soul. She has dedicated her life to rescuing her animals.
Please take a minute and nominate her .... She so deserves this.

My friends have heard me say more than once its "in my head" .... before a trip, I pack "in my head" ... makes it much easier on packing day to just pull things out of the closet and put them in a suitcase. If I'm designing a scrapbook page, or an art project, first I make it "in my head" .... I get some of my best ideas when I can't sit down and play, so I work on them "in my head" throughout the day ..... while I'm in the shower, driving, working, wherever and they turn out pretty cool "in my head". I'll call Debbie at Frenzy Stamper and ask her if she has this or that in stock, I need it now, I've got this great idea "in my head"
So next time you hear me say that, just know that my brain is working on the most incredible piece of art "in my head" .... its beautiful, I wish you could see it
Now to just get it on paper instead of "in my head"!!

The beginning of March, a group of us took the certification class offered at Ten Seconds Studio in N. Richland Hills, TX. What a blast!! Cheryl and Megan were the most awesome hosts, teachers, and chauffeurs. You can see lots more detail if you watch the Certification Course Taco Tuesday video from 3/10/09 at http://www.tensecondsstudio.com/
The first evening we arrived, Cheryl made lasagna for us for dinner ... quite tasty, Cheryl! ... and we played with PMC ... more on that later ... next morning we got started on our first project, that proceeded to take all day long ... and even several hours into the evening. We were having so much fun, and learning so many different techniques, no one wanted to stop!
The project is a clipboard that we had to decorate ... any way we wanted ... and Cheryl gave us free run of the workshop to dig and find whatever we needed.
Here's the overall view of the beginning of it ...
The idea was to make a clipboard full of ideas and techniques ... mine is still a work in progress, but I can't wait to show you the first few pages ...
and the next ...
and one more for now ....
Well its half done .. better go get busy on the rest of it!!
