Tomorrow evening (Wednesday 11/10) there will be a small craft show at Honeycutt Elementary. My mom will be there will some of my stuff & will be taking orders. I believe the show runs from 3:30p - 7p... stop by & see her if you're in the area!
On a separate note, I want to apologize if anyone feels like it's taking me a while to get your orders done. I'm sure most of you know that aside from crafting I have a full time job, a 3 1/2 year old that I spend much of my free time with, and a baby on the way. The latter has caused some of my motivation to disappear once my little boy goes to bed & I often find myself crashed out on the couch as opposed to painting/crafting.
So... I'm looking for some feedback. I've been asked to do a review for CSN & I'm super siked! A while back I did a giveaway & got really caught up in checking out the endless array of products they carry! My problem is I don't know what I want to get.... do I think of my family & get something for our (almost finished) screen porch like an awesome barstool? Do I get something my big boy would love, like this T-Rex? Do I get something for the newbie - you can't go wrong with a Beatles reference onesie? Does Momma get a nice relaxing place to chill? I've always loved these chair hammocks. (Don't laugh, it could happen. I could, maybe, possibly, get a chance to sit & relax.... maybe.) So.... what do you think? What should I get? What would you like to hear a review on????
I think the extra hormones have also caused a bit of random-ness..... oh wait, I've always been like that :)
My sister-in-law has started painting & has amazing talent! Here are two pictures she's painted (cell phone pictures, will replace with better pics soon). She's taking custom orders through The Funky Dot. Prices range depending on complexity of requested piece.
Have you heard the buzz about CSN stores? If not, you should definitely check them out! I’ve seen their giveaways on so many blogs, I finally gave in & went to their webpage… HELLO, everything you could ever want is there; check out the ottoman coffee table (um, it’s a table, it’s a stool – could you ask for anything else?), the shoes& purses (how do you say no to these?), the beautiful bedding, & they even have outdoor furniture! So after the amazing support I received when Stacey did The Funky Dot giveway on her blog, I decided it was my turn to give back!

Just a quick update.
I'm working on a few "manly" birdhouses. I'll post pics as soon as their done.
I also wanted to let everyone know that because Stacey over at http://designaddictmom.blogspot.com/ did such an amazing job with The Funky Dot giveaway, I've decided to try my hand at a giveaway too! Keep an eye out for an upcoming CSN Stores $20 gift certificate giveaway coming soon!!!
Got a request to do an ECU mailbox. I guess this should come as no surprise to me since ECU fans are just, if not more, loyal than UNC fans! The mailbox came out totally awesome (if I do say so myself). The rain prohibited me from taking the pictures outside, so the lighting isn't great. Hopefully once the new owner of this mailbox gets it up, she'll send me pictures!
Can't see it well in the picture, but with the flag up, this side has yellow dots & ECU in purple!
