Ok first off I am SOOOO Excited EEEKKK I made the first cut and I am in the top 25 for Graphic 45's DT call!! I am over the moon, but nervous at the same time lol. I need to send three projects to them and I don't know if I should make new ones, send some of the ones I have already done or what lol. I have the whole weekend to figure it out I guess. But I wanted to say congrats to the other amazingly talented people who made the cut and can't wait to see who they choose as their new Design Team. Good lucky everybody :)
I did another Tim Holtz Configurations Box this week. And my inspiration came from our favorite girl Alice. I am really loving these Tim Holtz Configuration boxes. I may need to get a few more.
This one started out with me making a few little mushrooms and it evolved into this.
All of the pieces, except the bottle, key and Prima flowers were hand sculpted and painted. The mini Alice and Caterpillar came at the end. I have it posted on Etsy. My first listing there. And someone featured it on their picks. I put a lot of time and detail in it and hope someone decides to take it home and enjoy it.
Oh yeah on last crafty thing. Cnavas Corp is having an awesome contest right now, make sure to go and check it out!!!
I am so tired and thanks to my parents I will be kidless this weekend so that means SLEEPING IN!!! They will have a fun filled weekend at the river and I will have a little peace and quiet lol. My best buddies will be home before I know it :)
A little personal note. Quentin goes in next Wed. to have tubes put in and possibly his adenoids taken out. I am a nervous nell, I know it is a very common procedure, but still. Also I am thinking of keeping him from school till then so he doesn't come down with another cold. If he does they can't do the procedure. As some of you know he has a huge speech delay. I have been fighting with doctors for the last couple of years trying to get his issues handled. They said things from autism, to lack of intelligence, to a brain defect (never testing him) just rattling off conditions. And not once ever taking into account how many ear infections he has had over the years, or that when he is seen he always has fluid in his ears, infection or not, or that his speech therapist felt that it was a physical problem and stated so. It got so bad that I even had Children's Hospital tell me that I had never seen the ENT!! Like we never even existed. It's been a very stressful and long road. He is coming up on Kindergarden and besides his issues with hearing and speech would have no problem adjusting to school. This has been holding a very intelligent and happy boy back. And fingers crossed this will help him progress. Ok thanks I feel a little lighter now thank You
I wish you all a great weekend.
