Playing Catch-Up!

It's been a few days and I have so much to catch you up on! My speech at the event last Friday went very well! The spotlight was so bright in the auditorium that I seriously couldn't see anyone in the audience. It was just perfect!

Yesterday I began Mission Crate Seats. I got the wood from our local True Value...only $13 for the wood, enough to make 8 crate seats. I bought foam seat cushions in packs of 4 for $6.97 at Wally World and heavy duty fabric to cover the cushions on clearance for only $2 per yard. Now I just have to decide on the cutesy fabric I want to cover the seats with. Decisions, decisions. I'll be posting pictures when the project is not strewn about my kitchen completed.

I also received my copy of In Pictures and In Words by Katie Wood Ray for our book study! Head on over to Mrs. Will's blog to grab the bookmark and participate...all the fun starts on June 22.
