The weekend that is. LOL!! Let's have a giveaway. First I have a question. I really do have a ton of stuff to giveaway. When it gets closer to the time I move I am going to need to get rid of all of it. And I am sure I will still have a ton of stuff even with all the giveaways I have been doing. Would any of you that enter my giveaways be willing to pay $5-$10 (towards shipping) for a big box of papers and embellishments? I have stacks and stacks of paper, and I just won't have anything to do with it. I mean I could keep it but do I really need 15 sheets of the same paper.....not really, especially since I don't get to craft much. So I may have like 5-10 boxes of stuff I could giveaway. And we all know paper is heavy and can be pricey to ship. I have a bunch of embellishments too. So if you want to let me know in a comment (not required) if you think that would be OK to ask for a small "donation" towards shipping. :-)
Next, I wanted to share a few pictures. This week my daughter got her braces off. She had them on a little over 2 years. I think she got them Feb/March of 2010. She was so excited. I was excited for her. I think I even got a little teary eyed. LOL!! I told Tony that we are going to need to buy tissue in bulk in a few month because for the next 5-7 years I am going to shed a lot of tears. LOL!! I mean so many changes are going to happen. My oldest will start driving, working, and being a little more independent. My oldest boy will start kindergarten. Next fall my youngest daughter will start kindergarten. The following year my daughter will be a senior and graduating. And the year after that my baby will be starting kindergarten. Oh boy, I am getting teary eyed just thinking about it. I think I cried every year for about 4-5 years with Nicki at the start of the school year. Just seeing my baby walk in to school all independent it just made me so sad. LOL!!
Alright on to the pictures.
Next is a picture of my Mother's Day gift. I found it on Etsy and jokingly sent a picture to Tony telling him he could get it for me. Little did I know he did. LOL!! (I also got a fabulous pedicure for Mother's Day)
Gifts like this mean more to me than some expensive diamond or something. Anything handmade by my kids or anything to do with my kids means a lot. I told Tony the other day if he is going to buy me a wedding ring (Lol, nope not married yet) I don't want a traditional diamond. I want something that has my kids birthstones or something. There will be a diamond though because Nicki's birthday is in April. :-)
I also did a little manicure.....
Please excuse around the cuticles, I just did it when I took this picture and I hadn't gotten all the polish off. I am not sure if any of you follow Kristina Werner's blog but she got me hooked on Konad nail stamping oh maybe a year or so ago (maybe less than that). But not only does she have her craft blog but she started a nail blog. Oh my. I went and spent $20 on polish last night so I can try a new technique she shared on her blog. Have any of you tried Konad stamping?
Now on to the giveaway part. I have another random box of goodies to giveaway. :-) Just leave me a comment and you will be entered to win. :-)
I will leave this open until May 15 at 11:59pm EST.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!
