OMG! The LOVE!!!

I can’t tell you the difference a day makes!! No all my issues with my son and his school haven’t been magically fixed (you can read about this here) BUT I was SOOOOOOO overwhelmed with all of your comments, emails, phone calls, with support and wonderful thoughts of prayers and advice!
I am always so amazed that people actually look at my little blog and it is such a comfort knowing there are readers out there that care and are SO sweet! You all are THE BEST!!
I gave my crafting skills a little dry run today to create something to show my gratitude.  I am not quite back to my normal creative self but I thought I would pull up a few challenges and give it a go. I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the color scheme from ColourQ. Check it out-

I have to admit that being crafty was so much easier after reading all your supportive comments!  I also am so appreciative to ALL my FACEBOOK fans that showed support as well.  I can say thank you enough, and I am SOOOOO appreciative for all the advice that I got!!! Such great info was given and I feel so much more prepared to handle this with the school!!
I thought it was fun to take some vintage faceted buttons and color them with my copper sharpie and what do you know- Crumb Cake buttons!! I decided to use the same WAX RESIST WATER COLOR TECHNIQUE that I used for THIS PROJECT– I love this technique!! Then of course I had to add some glitter cause that just makes me feel good!
I announced a few days ago a FUN contest on my FACEBOOK PAGE… I am SUPER close to hitting 400 FANS– I decided that once I got to that magic 400 I would do a GIVEAWAY!!!  I am SOOO close, and once I hit 400 ALL of my fans will be eligible for the giveaway!!  Share me with your friends and fellow crafting buds!  This is not the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT that I talked about the other day- that is still coming!! I hope to have it ready for unveiling this week- stay tuned!
