School's almost out....only a few more days and the kids will be free for the summer. Lots of swimming goes on around here. We'll have 'movie' Fridays, Beach Vacays, and Disney dates with Dad. I'll be okay until the 1st of August. Then you'll hear me scream.....and yell......and holler and wish school was back in. Of course, at that time, their will only be 2 more weeks of vacation left. Then I'll wonder where the Summer went. Isn't that  the way of things?
Everyone was bragging about their kids on FB. Mine got this award, mine got that award. Well, darn it all, so did mine! Too many to name including A/B Honor Roll but the 'BIG' one was STUDENT OF THE YEAR! Both of them received it from 2 different teachers!
(My kids are on each end)
We're so proud of them and the efforts that were made by them this year. Can't believe they'll be 5th Graders this next year.
My custom work orders are finished and I'm not doing anymore until the kids get back to school. I'm tired. The shop is still open and I'll ALWAYS be creating but I've got to take time for some home repairs and painting. Plus, I need some play time, too!
Speaking of play time, I've found a new medium.
I ordered some of this from Amazon.
I've also been watching You Tube videos.
I thought I'd start with gourds and birds.
I'll let you know how it goes.
Here's my Supply Giveaway.
A large flat rate box FULL of painting surfaces and small wood pieces. This is just a small, minute part of what I have. I should hang my head in shame for having so much but instead, I'll share my bounty with you! Yes, I know their are FB pages where this can be sold and no, I don't want to deal with that.
If you'd like a chance to win this, please leave me a comment. Make sure I have a way to contact you, too. If you want to share this post, then please do and I'll count you twice! Just let me know where you're sharing it!
This needs to stay within the boundaries of the USA so please, only comment if you live in the States.
 This Giveaway is open until Monday, June 22nd at which time I'll announce a winner sometime that morning EST.
Thanks for your support by Following my Blog. I hope your summer is fun-filled, your troubles few, and the screaming waits until school starts again!

This looks more fun to do then shingles on the roof. Had to take a break due to more rain. Thanks for the fun opportunity to have some fun!!

What a great giveaway! I have been busy this past year with re-locating to a different state to start a new job and getting settled here. Now I hope to catch up on some much needed painting and crafting! Hope you have a wonderful summer!

Found your site by accident. Wow! What a wonderful opportunity. I teach school and find it hard to find a time to relax and just craft. Would love the opportunity with summer just around the bend. Thank you for the chance. Ruth - ashken2@roadrunner.com
