In Celebration of the New Year coming and my 2nd FAVORITE HOLIDAY, Valentine's Day, I was messing around on my computer today making copies of some of my VINTAGE VALENTINE'S and POSTCARDS. Most of them are on PREMIUM Natural PARCHMENT Paper that is 25% COTTON!!! (some are just plain copy paper which I won't use again because the Parchment Paper is AWESOME) They will ALL BE AVAILABLE on the website Jan. 1st, 2008, however, I am GIVING AWAY these 32 pieces to one lucky winner on NEW YEARS DAY!!! All you have to do is leave a comment on my blog or if you don't have a blog, just email me and tell me you would like to enter in the Valentine's Day Giveaway. THIS IS OPEN TO EVERYONE WORLDWIDE!!!!





THANK YOU MARY ROSE for this AWESOME LOGO and the one on top of my blog....Please check her out, she does FABULOUS WORK and all this for just FIVE BUCKS!!! JUST CLICK ANYWHERE ON THESE SENTENCES!!!

Great contest! :)

I have been looking at your BOOBS.........They look awsome. What really makes me jealous is your small waist. I use to have one before I got married, and had 4 children, but for some reason it has disappeared. It went somewhere and haven't found it. hehe!! Your nipples, when they get tattooed, will look original. Happy Holiday....... JAN

Anywho, I am so proud of you to be so brave and walk us through this journey. It is important for those of us who have not experienced what you are going through to realize that this is VERY real and can happen to any of us at any time. The information that you share is only beneficial any way you look at it.

Amy, your reconstructive surgery and your final implants look amazing. What an outcome and you should be very happy with them.....need I ask? I know you are!!!!!! They are beautiful if you don't mind me saying so.

Love you lots little sister!!


Twinkle Pink said...

Hello Amy, I have been following your breat cancer journey right from the start and I am so glad that you have climbed that enormous mountain. I really do appreciate the photo journey too as we hear about these things but never get any pictorial details of how it all works. I am relieved for you that it all looks so good and natural too, I am waiting to see how the tattoo's will look - the wonder of science eh.

Happy New Year and love the heart!

best wishes Ginny

I'm so glad you are feeling better and starting a new contest already on your blog. (I've been following along all summer, fall, and winter)I'd love to be included in the contest! Also, I would love to know how to make or buy those awesome graphics you have on your sites...I've tried making my own but they just don't seem to fit across the top header.
Any advice?

Thanks a bunch!
