Here are some things I have been up to. On my last post I spoke about Sebastian. I asked for everyone to please create a card for him. I did not create a card for him, instead a created a banner. Each letter has an animal. I thought this would look cute in his hospital room. Maybe when he is ready to go home the nurses can sign it for him. It is long since his name has 9 letter.
Here it is:
I have also just purchased a gumball machine. I first saw this in Paula's blog. http://www.morethanfavors.blogspot.com/. She had bought one on ebay and I loved it. Then Marlene from http://www.uniquelyella.blogspot.com/, bought one while junking as she calls it. She paid only $5.00. When I saw hers I knew I wanted one and I wanted it pink. Well, this last Saturday while going to garage sales, we saw an estate sale. Little did I know that there would be one there for me. My husband called me in the house and showed it to me. They wanted $2.00. I was more than happy to pay them for it. I came home and with a little paint this is what it looks like now. I did not take pictures of it before, but it was red.
I am still debating what to put in it. It does work but I have put a white cardboard cover on the bottom so that whatever I decide to put in it does not go down. What do you think I should put inside? Besides gumballs or any candy. That's what hubby thinks I should put inside. I thought flowers, buttons or acrylic bobbles, since I have so many of them.
I am happy to also say that I have finally won something. I have never won a prize on the internet through a blog or youtube giveaway. I just leave comments, without expecting anything. Well, Damaris from: http://www.atstudiod.blogspot.com/, had a giveaway on youtube and I was one of the winners.
Here are the goodies I received.
This tag is gorgeous. She sent it to me with a really nice note. She has really pretty cards she makes almost daily. THANK YOU DAMARIS, for sending me such a nice box of goodies.
And lastly, I have finally broken down (go that from Damaris) and bought a smash book. I remember having these in junior high and high school. I also have one of when my husband and I dated, 9 years before we officially were married. So now that I have one I have been taking pictures of things we do and keeping things of places we go. First place was the movies on Sunday to see The Vow. I will share and post pictures of my pages as I get them together. I will be back to Michael's to buy some more things like the tapes and the date gadget.
Sorry for the long post but I wanted to share what I have been up to lately. I also finished on Sunday the other bib mini, but have not taken pictures of it. Will do that soon.
Hope you all are having a great Thursday.
