Life is funny sometimes. We go through our days, weeks, years, planning, changing, growing, thinking we are doing something different than the generation before us. Then we realize, what goes around comes around. Hairstyles come and go out of style, clothing fads, raising a new generation. We look in the mirror and we are becoming our Mother’s, our children are growing up and becoming more like us(even though they would never admit it).
The beginning of a new school year, always has us thinking and changing. What will we do different this year. A new start, a new beginning a chance to start fresh.
Lot’s of reminiscing this week. Our oldest granddaughter started kindergarten this week. Thoughts of our own children starting school for the first time flood through. The emotions of sending a child off for the whole day away from you. You wonder, have I equipped them to take on this big world, to survive out there without us. I was reminded of that this week as my daughter told me about her thoughts as her little child stood on the school playground. Things that you want to say to them as you watch them take there firsts in life. Things that you would like to remind them of and help them with, but all you can do is silently watch as they walk away …….alone………. without your hand…….
This past week has truly been a blessing to me. I have had so many wonderful comments and such a great response to this giveaway. I truly am blessed to have gotten to know so many nice people here in the blogging world. I truly appreciate each and every one of you!!
Business gets busy this time of year. There is so much to do as we spruce up out homes and get things in order for the coming months. We have been busy with lots of custom orders. We just love to create new things for people, something to fill in the gap that nothing else can fill.
If you see anything that you have questions about please email me. Most of our items are listed on etsy or on my Facebook page which you can find HERE. I know I have had several people ask about custom signs, and family names, etc. Now is the time to plan ahead for Christmas if you are looking for a custom item. How nice would it be to be able to give Grandma her favorite verse on a sign to hang in her home in a color that goes with her décor. The mother in law that is always hard to buy for. You get the idea.
Now onto the giveaway~~ YES! The whole reason that you are here today. First I want to thank everyone that entered and shared my info with people. I appreciate it and I wish I could give everyone a gift!
I did this the good ole fashioned way! That is why I am a little late with this post. I had to check everyone that shared on fb, on their blog, twitter, (wow, this technology). Count it all up, extra chances, put them in a hat………….so here goes……..
The winner of this giveaway is Sandi @ The Primitive Skate ~ Please email me so I can get your info! If I don’t hear back in 48 hours, I will pick a new winner. Thank you all for entering and for your sweet comments.
I have had so many requests for this tree. I haven’t even listed it yet and I have already sold one. I am only going to have a few more to sell, so if anyone is interested please email me so I can plan and set one aside for you. I am going to offer them here before I list them anywhere else. I have several sights in which I sell, but I wanted to give you all a chance first. I will be offering it as a package, the tree with the acorns and in a stenciled box. (Each box will be different).This is such a great display that could be used now up until and through Christmas and also to the end of Winter. The box will be something that you could use all year long as well.
Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things.
If you have read this to the end and been so faithful, I am going to give you an extra chance to win something. I have two more items(surprises) that I am also giving to my faithful followers. All that you have to do is comment that you have read this whole post and would love to entered again. Tomorrow evening I will pick two different people from the comments here and send out a little something. I have been so blessed, I would like to give a little something back. Thank you all so much!!!
