Adventures in Life: Showers, Mothers, and a Lesson Learned

Well, friends. It's official. My time on So You Think You're Crafty has come to an end. I am trying to be positive and think that 4th place out of 10 crafters is not bad...but my inner competitive woman is having a bit of a hard time with it!! I have been learning the lesson that life is not always fair, and the only thing I can control is my own actions. (Stay tuned for more thoughts on that lesson.) 

Thank you to everyone who took the time to go and vote!! 

I totally love my garden stepping stones! And I can't wait to use them to stand on while weeding my garden. 
I will show you how I made them next week! They are so fun and pretty easy if you have the right supplies. 

But this weekend is a busy one. I'm throwing a baby shower for one of my very best friends today. And I've been crafting up a storm to get ready for it...don't worry! There will be a post about it next week!!

And then on Sunday we are driving 4 hours to meet my parents half way in the Wisconsin Dells for Mother's Day brunch! (They live in Minnesota, so the Dells are half way between us.) 
(My mom and our wedding, if you couldn't tell by my dress!)
I hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend! 


  1. I am just hoping to make it through the audition round for next season! You did a great job and I found a new awesome blog to follow from you being in the competition. Happy Mother's Day!

  2. You should be very proud of yourself. It's not easy to craft and put it out there for others to see. Sounds like a great weekend ahead....enjoy!

  3. Well, you are the #1 crafter in my book! :o) I love, love those stepping stones and may have to do some with my little Granddaughter.

    Oh, how sweet of you to drive 4 hours to meet your Mom on Mother's Day. Enjoy the time with her and may you have a great new week!

  4. You are a winner, so just let it goooooooo. Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend!
