Groundbreaking news! Piggy Tales WOW! A RAK!

It's official! The building of our house began as of today!! I got to our property just in time to get our excavator shoveling the very first bucket of dirt where our future home will be located. By the time I went back after work, it was quite apparent that a house was going to be built right where we're standing in the photos below!

Today has been just an awesome day! In the mail I got a big ole box of goodies from Piggy Tales!! Thanks Debbie Juden (PT owner). And also a congrats to Debbie on the birth of their second son, Luke! Debbie is SO generous! I was completely blown away by all the goodies included in the box!! I think every single new summer CHA item was in that box!! I love PT's yummy ribbon! I can't wait to play!!

I haven't dropped anything into the Cumulative Rak Box for September, so here it is! It's a charm bracelet complete with charms in a Christian theme. So remember, if you want to win the box of goodies, all you have to do is post comments. For each comment you post, you'll receive a lottery ticket to be placed in the hat for the prize winning drawing!

I found these little goodies at Target in the hot spot the other day. It's a package of really cute fall brads and a wooden alphabet stamp set. I will be giving this set away some time this weekend. I will put your name in a hat for every comment you post for this little set and draw by Sunday!

One more thing- I took a watercolor theory class with Laura Jacobs, owner of Bugawumps stamp company last night. I will make some cards using my newly acquired skills and try to get them posted for a RAK soon!!

I looked again at these photos and have to say Conner looks so tiny in the "new basement" hee hee hee.

He looks so cute!

Looks like your NEW house will really be out in the country, this summer we went to Vermont and the girls now want a horse, we live in the city, so we might find a beautiful spot like that to live one day too. God bless!

Today is my catch up day. Looks like I missed some cool stuff the last few days. Love all those layouts. I bought some Piggy Tales paper yesterday. It was the first time I've seen any in stores. I got the Chicken Little line. Can't wait to play with it.
