WOW Thank you.....

Wow! I logged onto my blog this morning and couldn't believe the comments and new followers! Thank you so much. You sure do know how to make a gal feel special :). I have had fun with the blog hop and I hope you have too. Don't forget you have a few more days to get around to all the blogs. I will be picking a winner for the K&C goodies this Sunday!

Since I had the blog hop going on yesterday, I wasn't able to share with you my layout this week for Magistical here it is :) I simply LOVE this layout. The scalloped looking paper is BoBunny. I cut out the center portion so that I could have the outside as a frame and then layered it on Yellow Bicycle paper. Lots of fun elements in here. I even added some cedar wood chunks to the sides. I took this picture while at the hospital. It was their first kiss. It stole my heart. I also used some smooch spritz (which by the way I MUST get more of...I love this stuff) on the letters.

Another sad day here in the Thackston household. My Aunt Elaines mom died so we will be going to another viewing today. This makes 3 in 2 weeks. I am just worn out from all the sadness. My cousin goes today to the neurologist to find out what they will do for prayers if you can spare a few for both my Aunt and my cousin. My family has just been really needing the prayers lately.

On a totally different note...I got my second box of goodies from Thred Up! OMG. I love this whole concept! So here is the deal....  Follow this link, which is a referral link, and sign up...just put in your name and address, and then get to looking around. They have kids clothes from newborn to size 20. It is almost like a swap for those of you that have done swaps before. But this is with kids clothes. Each box is $5 plus $10.95 shipping and handling. Here is the deal...if you sign up under my referral...and then buy a box...I get $5 in my account. So you need to then refer your friends, etc so that you can earn money too. you put up boxes and when they sell you earn money too. I just bought my third box and it only cost me $5! And I am talking about slammed full, 21 items worth, of clothes for Danie! Cute and some name brand. You have to search through the boxes but it is all worth it. I promise. It is totally addicting. Give it a try :)

I am so happy today if finally friday. I hope to share with you this weekend Kayla's two new hats. One is a pumpkin and the other is the cutest bunny hat I have ever seen. She is so talented and just doesn't know it. I hope to work in my flower gardens this weeekend too. Maybe the weather will be nice. I hope to enjoy my family and just have a good, calm weekend. Maybe even get us a backyard swing. Maybe. Before they are all sold out at Home Depot. I plan to finish up my first Birdies Stitches quilt block. Finish the Fever Series and list those books up on the way...if you love Fairy, Vampire, etc books...I have listed some on ebay (entire sets) if your interested let me know. I would love to get these out of the house so that I can save the money up for a Kindle. I also plan to get my Survivor layout done for Tallyscrapper and hopefully send out a few more DT entries. Magistical Memories will no longer have a DT come May so please enjoy these last few weeks of layouts and don't forget to stop by their store and buy up chipboard. It really is fun to use. I love all their products. They are not closing....just no DT. So I am on the massive hunt for another DT to work with. I love the commitment and working with others so I want to find another to fill the space. It keeps me being creative ya know.

Okay I MUST head to work now. Have a great Friday
