Well, I forgot to post the winner of the RAK yesterday... OOPS! It seems like I'm saying oops a lot lately. Can you tell I have a bit too much on my plate? Lance and I were talking about this the other night. I just don't know how to say NO. Do you have the same problem? I guess my mind works faster than my body because all the GREAT things I WANT to do, don't add up to ACTUAL things that get done... Need to work on that. :)
So better later than never... the winner of the RAK is:
Congratulations Jena! Send me your address and I will send out your RAK!
I was supposed to be having a GARAGE SALE right about now, but I forgot to advertise it and we both just couldn't muster up the energy to have one this weekend anyways. I've been a taxi cab all week with the girls after school activities and we just added another one...
TENNIS! Rebecca went out for the Junior High Tennis Team at school and she LOVES it! I'm SO proud of her. If you've followed my blog for years (over 3 years now!) you may remember Victoria and Rebecca took tennis lessons EVERY Saturday for a couple years. But then they got tired of it and both of them wanted to quit. I was kind of tired of it too and unfortunately in a week moment I gave in. I SO wish I wouldn't have. I think it's such a great sport and great form of exercise. But alas, "it is what it is" and Victoria still doesn't want to play but Rebecca did. So she signed up with some friends and she started practice on Wednesday. She hasn't been on a tennis court in probably 2 years and she picked it up right away! I was SO happy when I picked her up and she said she LOVED IT and really felt like she MISSED IT!! Oh, and when I picked her up she was playing with the High School Team!! Her old coach said she had a "God given" talent for tennis and yesterday this coach basically said the same thing! (thus the reason I wish she wouldn't have quit) So I'm just praying she continues to love playing it and we'll see where this goes... She's only in 6th grade so I'm glad she got back in it before High School when it gets pretty competitive.
I've also been working on my class designs this week and NEED to get done with 2 of them PRONTO... I can't share anything yet, but I will share a birdhouse I made this week with Webster's Pages Country Estate line:
This is a wood birdhouse about 12" tall and I got it at my local craft store. I painted it, crackled it with Tim Holtz Crackle paint and then have SO much fun playing with the new line "Country Estate" by Webster's Pages
I cut 2 of the journal cards with a scalloped scissors and then decoupaged them on for the roof. Then I aged some of their trims and adhered that on both ledges of the birdhouse.
It's almost SPRING and I'm having SO much fun CREATING with Webster's Pages new lines! I'll share a couple more small things I made with this line next week!
Have a GREAT weekend,
