In addition to her wonderful blog, I have been introduced, by so many of you, to some really great blogs that I am really enjoying and cannot wait to get the time to really sit down and read them. Be it something pertaining to gardening, scrapbooking, homekeeping, or raising a family I can see why you all have chosen these as your favorite blogs. It is such a treat to open up the "pages" of these blogs to discover something new and captivating.
Well I also want to let you all know that I wish that I could give each one of you a PIE FIXES EVERYTHING sign! But my fingers have been painting as fast as they can, my nails are every shade of the rainbow and I am plum tuckered out! Instead, I am offering it at Farmhouse Mercantile for 20% off for the month of June to the SugarPie Sista's, so if you do still want it you can get it at a discount for a little while...just send me a comment with your user name.
I have had such a crazy two weeks, with trying to get my online shop up and running, my children are at the end of their school year and next week is their last week of school. It has been non stop field trips, book fairs, award ceremonies, field day's, end of the year dances, sport tournaments etc. etc. Ongoing fun! I am very involved with my kids and am trying to balance my painting with keeping things going at home.....and whewwweeee, I am TIRED!
I wanted to make sure that I announced the winner today as I promised. I will get back on here early next week with some real down-home bloggin! In the meantime I have some pictures of a class trip I took with my 11 year old daughter this past week. I am a big history buff and jumped at chaperoning this trip when I found out where we were going....a local place called Cold Spring Village one of my favorite places. It is a living history museum which means that there are actual people re-enacting history before your eyes in period clothing inside the old buildings using historical artifacts. I really love it there, it is one of my favorite places, so peaceful and beautiful there.
