    Hello all! Hope your weekend was a wonderful one. It's Monday again (thumbs down.)

The Good news is that it's only until 1:30. For you, the good news is I've got tons of opportunities! Check them out and pick something!

Hi Racquel,

Remember the giveaway you had a little while ago, for your followers--the amazon gift cards, etc.? Did you ever announce the winners to that? :)

Just wondering, as I never saw any post about it..
