Wednesday in Pictures + rak

Heeelllllooooo everyone!!!

first off thanks to all the kind words that you guys gave me with my new job. I'm so excited to be in the GCD Studios team. There are a lot of "altered items" swirling in my head now. I can't wait to play with their fabulous products.

And to think Monday could've been any better, I got this package that day....

It's my GCD package. Wowzer!!!

Now I only see this kinda package from other people's blogs, I never dreamed that I can put one of my own pics of this in my space.

Oh and look how sweet GCD is, they even sent some candies to go with their "sweet" package. Thanks GCD.


Spring is my favorite time of the year. I love the sunshine, the nice weather, the planting season and the fun paster colors. To make me feel the mood of the whole season, I busted out this quilt to put on my bed. My mom labored on this quilt for years and she gave it to us for a Christmas gift. Oh how I love this family treasure.



And finally my little static girl. This is what Maddie's hair look like when she jumps on the trampoline. I'm so amazed at how much they stand up. Marcus refers to this look as "rockstar".



oh and since I'm in a happy mood why not do a rak! Just leave a comment here on what's your favorite item to alter and I'll send two people something from that great GCD package that I got.

****RAK Closed******

So there you have it. Happy midweek.

Till next time,
Grace

So fun! COngrats! I love the static pictures, so cute. I love to alter anything, especially something that is a left over or throw away item. And I must say your mom's quilting is beautiful. That is something that I do for a job, and something to keep and treasure!
