If you've visited my blog before, you will know my girls like to make videos of the RAK draws I do here. And that's what they were going to do this time.
Well, the script had been written, the bunnies had been trained and all your comments/names were printed out and cut up. This one was going to be BIG, a hit!! The only thing was, most afternoons this week, the girls have not been home at the same time, together, to be able to make their video. So unfortunately, that idea has been shelved for the next RAK I do.
Emily is on her way, as I type, to her band camp for the weekend. So that left Phoebe and I to draw some winners this afternoon. So here we go....
The first name out was Regina, from Sweden. Congratulations, Regina you win the following pack of Maya Road goodies (thanks to Maya Road):
Because there were so many gorgeous comments from you, I've decided to have three other little packs of Maya Road goodies, which I'll put together over the weekend and send out to the following girls:
Just in case you can't read the names.... congratulations to Jen from Canada, Paula C and Marlou from Northern Ireland.
I'll email you over the weekend girls, but if you pass by before that, can you email me your mailing addresses.
I'd just like to thank everyone for visiting my blog and leaving your comments. I'm slowing trying to visit your blogs too, if you have them. I enjoy seeing everyone's work.
To end the week, I thought I'd share a few favourite photos from this week.
The girls have recently discovered my old typewriter. It's quite funny, they sit there typing their stories on it, because they say they like the old looking type. I haven't the heart to tell them they can get the same look on the computer using a font like GF Halda. This was actually my second typewriter I owned through my college days. I look at it now and can't believe I typed all my college assignments. Oh, to have computers in the olden days! Here's Phoebe typing one of her novels:
Mother's Day cake. It may have been small, but it was rich and delicious:
Phoebe playing the euphonium with her band. It was the band's first official performance this week at Education Day. They played so well together in front of the school (that's over 700 children) and the officials and teachers who attended the day:
i Love photographing kids craft and art. This is Phoebe's Moroccan inspired puppet on display in her classroom this week for Education Day:
And for all you felt lovers out there, I'll leave you with this little image:
Thick wool felt flowers. They are about 5mm thick and gorgeous. I visited a fabulous local store which I love this morning and found these in a little bowl. Of course, I couldn't decide what colour or size to buy, so bought myself a good variety of them all :-))
I hope you have a great weekend.
Tonight I'm on parent duty at the band camp - the kids are having a trivia night... mmm, I hope they aren't relying on me to help, I'm hopeless at trivia. Then the duty parents have to try to settle the kids and convince them to go to sleep. Apparently duty parents are not allowed to leave the camp until there has been silence in the cabins for at least half an hour. Wish me luck, I'd really like to be home before midnight.
Thanks for visiting.
