Whew Hoo! I Won!

I had so much fun participating in the giveaway at Sew Mama Sew. I think I commented on about 100 different AWESOME blogs. It was really neat to see so many people with blogs about things that I'm so interested in. I got tons of ideas and had fun leaving comments and LOVE for all of those creative projects people have taken the time to make. So, thanks to those at Sew Mama Sew. It was really fun!

Here's what I won! It was handmade by Noelle at The HomeEc Teacher's Daughter and is it ever beautiful and oh so soft! V. has decided that he really likes this blanket and that he should have it for his bed. I was going to give it to my new baby niece, Ella. It's a good thing she's only tiny. She won't know that it was promised to her. I'm sure V. will get over it and it will go to her before long.

There are some really cute items for sale at Noelle's Etsy shop too, so you should check them out. Maybe you can find a cute present to send to me! :-P

Mama's Prides....
This week we've had two 100 Book Challenge ceremonies and both boys were at the top of their classes with their reading. G. (3rd) hit 1000 and V. (in K) hit 900 steps. There were only 3 or 4 kids who got that far. Also, G. presented his storytelling for all of the parents of the kids in his class and he did such a great job! I was so proud. Here's a picture of us in his classroom and one of him on stage with his classmates getting their 1000 awards.

Look how tall he's getting!

And here is V. doing his parade around the auditorium after getting his 900 award.

I also made a purse today. It's a little different than any I've made before. I just sort of created it without a pattern, so I'm not sure if it is going to be okay or not. LOL! I think it is cute though. The porcelain portrait pin is Victorian (circa 1890) and I found it a few days ago at Salvation Army for all of 25 cents!
There is one like it selling on Ebay right now. If anyone wants to watch it with me, it is HERE.
The one on ebay has the gold frame around it but mine does not. Theirs has a whole lot of scratches on it and mine doesn't have any.

Have a great day!
