I am trying to figure out which is more fun. Creating new items or buying new items. Hmmmm, that is a hard one because I love to make new signs and game-boards, but I also love to buy things. Well, I have been making a few new items and I thought I would share a few with you today. Here are a couple game-boards that I made for myself and the garden signs were for Mother’s Day gifts and I made a couple for myself as well. The signs were made without using a stencil and I must say that I had alot of fun making them. If you are interested in one or several then feel free to e-mail me or check out my selling blog.
I loved how the garden signs turned out. The mustard/black sign went to my Mom and the red/mustard sign went to my MIL. The God’s Handiwork sign was for me and I already have a flower garden sign so I was good to go there. It was fun for a switch not painting with a stencil. You can be so creative!!
So……… do you ever find yourself buying something and then not knowing what to do with it?!? Well, I found this great school desk at the Springfield Antique Extravaganza this weekend. I loved it and thought I would get it. Well, now I have it and I am not sure what to do with it or where to put it. I just love it and thought that it probably had alot of history behind it, but now I just need to find that perfect spot for it. Would you like to see it? I am so curious as to how old it is, but I can’t seem to find anything on it. The guy that sold it to me told me that it was made out of Ash. It is a nice Champion desk, but heck I don’t know much about old antique school desks. Do any of you? Here are some pictures.
So, what do you all think of my school desk? Can you imagine the history behind this? You wonder who sat at that desk? Makes you really think about where it has been and where it came from.
I leave you today with a couple pictures that were taken this weekend at Race for the Cure. I am a strong supporter and it is a tradition to participate every year. It was amazing to hear that over 50,000 people registered this year and it was a new record for the state of Ohio. I was part of the Heather/Stefanie team which contained just over 4000 people. We all wore pink wigs and it was truly awesome. I encourage you all to participate in the race sometime during your life. It is a great cause and the money goes towards finding a cure for cancer plus helping educate others about the importance. Here are a few pictures that I hope inspire you. Help make a difference because you never know when you might need it.
This was a group picture of the Heather/Stefanie Team.

You could see the sea of pink for miles. It was awesome!! It is a true testament that this horrible disease can affect so many lives. We definitely need a CURE!!!!!
