Last day for Giveaway

What a week! Definitely a smorgasboard post is in order!  Below you will find 2 giveaways going on , it’s the last day so be sure to enter!

My new husband, me, and one of my best friends attended a guided painting class.  Here is the result from “Owls in the Moonlight” – such a fun thing to do.  There’s at least 3 of these places near our home hopefully we’ll find some when we move!
Personal laminator – FINALLY! I feel  like a real teacher 🙂
Can’t wait to get in my classroom next Monday, trying to get some things done ahead of time.
Here’s sadly what my house looks like 🙁  What’s even worse is that my piles are organized – soon, soon it can be moved!
Can’t wait to post about all the things I’ve been making….
Don’t forget to enter the giveaways!

    My laminator is the best thing I've ever bought! And I love your paintings. I've been to those classes before and they are so fun! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    We have those guided painting places around here too (Massachusetts). There is a place my family has gone to called Paint & Sip – where you literally drink and paint! I'm so intrigued by it – those great paintings you and your husband did makes me want to go even more!

    Hey girl! I found your blog through the Sunday Smorgasbord linky and am now a follower of your blog!

    I don't think I could survive without my laminator and my house looks just like yours, except maybe not as organized!

    Congratulations on your "new husband" 🙂
