The month is almost gone and my posts have been few and far between, I know. The end of summer is such a busy time in the country with garden produce to harvest, outbuildings to clean, weeds to pull before they go to seed. I love being out here and spend most of my days at home but there are always lots of things that need my attention. Plus, I just want to be outside as much as I possibly can before winter comes and the nights grow as long as the days. I guess you might say, I've just been busy living each day to its full potential.
So here it is the end of August and I haven't even taken the opportunity to write a post about how excited I was when the first of the month rolled around and I had my July submission to the Tim Holtz Tag challenge chosen as a winner. Woo-hoo!! It was a tribute to my dad which made having it chosen extra special. You can check it out here if you haven't seen it. Mario and Tim sent me an official Tim Holtz Apron and a set of Simple Sayings stamps as my prize. Mario said to go right ahead and get glue and paint all over that apron, but so far I haven't had the nerve to wipe my hands on it. :) I will, though, and the stamps were actually on my wish list so it was great fun to receive them both. Thanks, Tim and Mario, and to the whole team for great products and inspiration!!
