That is life. I know. We move on and what was familiar becomes the past. We learn to love the new; and soon the new version becomes our beautiful reality. I have a special place in me that revels in the thoughts of those old versions of my life!
It has become a part of our memory.
I can hear the conversations in the future ‘Hey, Mom remember that castle? I use to imagine that big blue bird would fly off the wall and out the door’ ‘What color were those flags?’ ‘That was a cool castle, why didn’t you ever finish painting the garden like you said your would?’ ‘I wish I could see it one last time’. Thank goodness for cameras! I only wish they captured the feeling, the surrounding memories, the smells too.
Isn’t there something both exciting and sad about change?
So on with the winner of last Saturday's GIVEAWAY!
Again, thank you to ALL those folks who entered for the chance to win the 'Artistic Mother Starter Kit'.
The randomly generated winner is Chandra of 'a project a day'. I do hope that these supplies give you a burst of creative energy!
AND just for fun.....
I am going to send an ATC to the first person to comment on that post....
Stefanie Lin aka Artsy Momma
I will talk to you both via email :)
For everyone else:
This Saturday I will be giving away another kit, so if you don't mind coming back to leave a comment again (sorry to make you do that, but it is the fairest way I think). I will have another tutorial or something fun posted too to make it worth your while!
In May I will be doing another Saturday Follower giveaway. The ranks have grown! As there are now over 520 folks following this blog I will be giving away 2 handmade things each Saturday in May. So please check back in to see if your name comes up!
I was so excited to see my blog will be featured in the upcoming Artful Blogging magazine! You can see my spread layout on Stampington. Those eyes on the cover under the title are my Laura's! What a joy to me!
It will be available May 1.
