SSW178 and The Doodle Garden

I just got back from a wonderful trip to New York.  It was so fun to hold my brand new grand-daughter and spend time with my daughter and her sweet family.
My new grand-daughter is beautiful.....yes, I am a proud grandma!!
When I left New York on Monday morning, I was really lucky to be ahead of the worst part of the storm.  And, one of the lucky ones that didn't have their flight canceled.  I think that was because I was flying west.  It was incredible to look back in the plane and see the masive cloud cover I was leaving behind.  The storm was huge.
All in all, it was really hard to come home.  I went back to work today and really had jet lag.  I really need to go to bed early tonight.

Most of all, my prayers go out to those that have been affected by Sandy.

We have a fabulous new sponsor this week over at
We are so excited to introduce
"The Doodle Garden Jenn, Jenna, Jennifer Nilsson"

HI all!
Thanks for taking the time to get to know a little bit about the gal behind The Doodle Garden digis!

I enjoy creating bright whimsical pieces for manufacturers, but also wanted to be able to offer something to those who like to craft. So I have begun my journey with digistamp designs with my Etsy shop: The Doodle Garden.

It's fairly new, but is growing pretty fast and I am SOOO enjoying creating these little whimsies for YOU!
