Weekend Wedding

My younger sister Bonnie got married this last Saturday. Rachel and I went up to Salem for the weekend. We had a really nice time, even though we were very busy with the setting up, decorating, and cooking of the food. We also got to meet and visit with my dad's half brother and sister. Bill and Tona are both in their seventies. I have never met them before, and really enjoyed spending some time with them. They brought a lot of pictures of my dad as a kid, and his mother who I have only ever seen one picture of. It was really great to meet them, and I hope to be able to spend more time with them in the future. I am happy to be home with my husband and kiddos.

Spring is here, spring is here, it's the best time of the year!

We jumped ahead an hour today, and it is my favorite day of the year! It didn't get dark tonight until 7:30pm! I don't enjoy the winter very much, and every daylight savings day I feel like I just survived another winter, nothing but good times to look forward to now! I'm thrilled with the possibilities that lie ahead to use up the extra hour of daylight. Hopefully something worthwile to write about soon. Happy Day!

This is a post from my super awesome friend Tiffany. She's a creative genius, so I couldn't resist this givaway. As for any of you who want me to do this for disclaimer is to enter at your own risk. Who knows what scary thing I'll come up with.

On to the details of the giveaway...
The first THREE people to respond to this post will get something made by me!
My choice.
For you.
This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2- What I create will be just for you.
3- It'll be done this year. (might be a little while)4- You have no clue what it's going to be.It may be a story. It may be a joke book, autographed picture of myself, handmade bag, or a little invention of my own! I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows?
5- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange. Believe me... it may blow your mind.
The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must re post this on your blog and offer the same to the first 3 people who do the same on your blog.
The first 3 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did, win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it!
Sounds like fun, right? So, let's play!
