RAK winners

We were busy again last night doing house stuff. I got off work early, picked up the baby and headed to St.L to pick Eric up from work. We went to a flooring store to look at some flooring Eric saw on Craigslist. We bought that flooring for $2.50 or something like that a foot, which is a great deal considering we saw some hardwood flooring for $20/foot! Yikes! We picked out a natural birch wood floor. It's really pretty. We're going with a Craftsman look for the house so we picked out some cherry wood cabinets by Kraft Maid with a really pretty Autumn Blush stain. It's a pretty light red color. I hope it looks good with the birch flooring. I wanted to have contrast between the cabinets and the floor. I wanted a blonde colored wood to keep things light and airy and to contrast the red cherry cabinets. The cabinets are in a clean and simple shaker style. I think we're getting bronze fixtures for the knobs, handles and faucets. We haven't picked out our countertop yet but I think it's going to be a light colored Silestone with reddish flecks. The counter will be a blonde color to match the flooring.
We went to American to look at stoves and ended up buying a sofa instead. We got one of those sofas that has leather everywhere that touches the body, but vinyl on the back- way cheaper! It's a beautiful coffee bean dark brown color leather with 2 recliners built in. There are only 2 recliners that span the whole couch so they are extra wide and comfy. It has clean lines. It's very sumptuous. Hopefully it's neutral enough to go with everything else we've picked out. We plan to put a flat screen above the fireplace, so we looked at flat screen and got sticker shocked! LOL! This week, hopefully, fingers crossed, the drywall will go up. I will get pictures of the house (it's long overdue) once that happens so you can see the progress!

Now on to my FAVORITE part! The RAKS!!

Now everyone who commented, whether they said they wanted to win or not, got their name put in the hat. Quit trying to be a martyr and say you don't want my RAKs. I love blessing my friends! And who doesn't like the chance to win a present? So stop it already!




Here is what I came up with for the Piggy Tales preview RAK a few posts ago. I fell in love with this K&Co mini book kit. There are 143 pieces in this 4x5" book kit including transparency images, paper, chipboards. It is SO stinkin' cute!
I put 19 names in the drawing. Guess who's name I pulled out? I would have Connor do it but he's still sleeping. And the winner is.....
