I've got tons of business to take care of this morning here on the bloggity!
1) The winner of my blog candy is AnitaRex! Chosen randomly and scientifically--no small job considering how many comments I've received. Thank you, all of you so much! I'm honored that you read me.
2) I'm heartened to know that my mess isn't extraordinary as well, I had no idea how relieved I would feel.
3)Kraft Week has arrived! Susan Rahaila's blog, Simplicity, is perfection. She and I have teamed up for a week of kraft love, after I double dog dared her to use more kraft. We even have a giveaway, woot. I'll post details below.
Rustic Dude Kraft is the challenge Susan and I set for ourselves for today. Feel free to play along. The only rule (because rules complicate things) is kraft cardstock. Susan and I both distressed just the top edge of our paper, I like coincidences--and you know it took a stiff drink and a blindfold for Susan to distress something. I'm so proud of her!

Susan and I will choose one random commenter for the week to receive our prize. What is the prize? Well, it's a Crop-o-Dile II BIG BITE and a $25 gift certificate to Papertrey Ink! I want to win our prize...Susan? Do I qualify?
To enter, comment on at least one of the Kraft Week posts (one comment per post, of course). Susan will post five times, and so will I. That gives you ten entries for the drawing if you comment on all the Kraft Week posts. The more posts you comment on, the more chances to win!
