number 21 out of 30...

 (the bottle of wine with my label and the catalogue)
(above is Kelly Rae's block print and a giveaway I won from Beth)

 Well... I went to the wine box art auction with Ben on Friday night, it was a first for both of us.  I must say I have never had a more embarrassing or exciting night in quite a while.   My wine box was number 21 out of 30, so we had a bit of a wait for mine to come up.

When it was my turn the auctioneer not only called my name out but she said she wanted me to come up the front (I was hiding down the back) I was furiously shaking my head, NO NO NO ... but then Ben started dragging me up with a tight hold of my fingers.  I was mortified!  When we got there she asked if I wanted to say a few words about the creation of my wine box, I said 'AHHH NO'... then she asked Ben and he started answering her questions about me. As soon as he finished we scurried away and the auction started... so embarrassing!!!

I cannot quite believe it but my wine box went for $790!!!  a little bit exciting...
