Good morning! I just want to write a quick correction to the contest sponsored by Rhinestone Canada that I mentioned yesterday. In yesterday’s post, I stated that all entries needed to be in by June 1st. But the cut off date for the contest was actually July 1, 2013. I am sorry for the error. I write my blog pretty early in the morning and my eyes aren’t always awake when I do!
If you want to enter the contest, the link is here: Rhinestones Canada Giveaway
If you missed it, they are offering three starter kits and working with Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine to promote the contest. I hope you decide to enter.
As for me today, it is Monday and I am still finishing up the tail end of the new painting project. I am pretty close to the end of it, but I must admit I did some slacking yesterday as well as went and did some visiting. By the time I came home, it was a bit late to finish up so that is what is on the agenda today.
I am really getting anxious to finish this project up. It seems as if I have been working on it forever. When I look back, it really only has been a week but I suppose for my standards that is a long time. I have had to sand and do over some of the pieces because I didn’t like how they turned out initially, but when I re-did them, I was much happier so the energy wasn’t wasted.
I am also thinking in the direction of my next deadline(s) which are quickly approaching. The next couple of weeks will be pretty busy. But I always do enjoy that and look forward to seeing these ideas come to life.
Today is sunny and quiet and beautiful. For the first time this year, I can look across the road to the trees by the river and they no longer appear bare. The leaves are finally growing and it is finally looking like spring. We had rain all weekend and I am sure that helped the cause. I understand that several people had snow fall. My goodness the weather has been fickle! In any case, it is what it is and we just have to go along with what comes our way and make the best of it. I have some plans in the works so that I can spend some quality time working at the beach this year. that will be a nice change of pace for me if I can manage to accomplish things without a computer. We’ll see . . .
So with that said, I am going to get to work. Last week while on Pinterest I found a load of vintage cat pictures and I will be filling in with them here when I don’t have a relevant picture for you. I hope it makes you smile.
Happy Monday to you all!
