So You Think You're (5th Place) Crafty!

Well, it's the end of SYTYC for me. This week I got creamed, pulverized, bamboozled, slaughtered, taken to the cleaners, they waxed the floors with me... so I think I'm 5th place crafty! :) I'm fine really, just thought I'd make it sound a little more dramatic!

Since I knew I was in the bottom all week, I've been putting my energy into some other things that you'll hear about soon...
  • Planning two super exciting family vacations and the crafts that will go along with each!
  • Planning an old-school pajama party-style lingerie shower for one of my best friends
  • Dreaming about how to decorate Owen's big boy room that he will soon be in (we said goodbye to the paci this week, a bitter-sweet time for mommy and daddy too!)
  • Researching ads for my blog... yes, I've thought long and hard about it and after some good pep talks from my friend Jill, I'm taking the plunge!
(Do you love that I just bulleted that list for you? I think lists are the best!)

What a fun journey this competition has been! I've been crafting since December, so there are a lot of good memories and a lot of not-so-great memories (like my 5 crafts that were started and trashed and my teeny tiny window of crafting time due to the pregnant ickies)! I had a total blast being pushed each week to come up with something new. I've made a lot of great friends with my ridiculously talented competition and you all were so encouraging last week with all of your sweet emails and comments! Thanks!

Let's take a look back. (Cue cheesy sad music)
Audition Week: Mr Postman Mail Bag
Week 3: Kitchen on the Go (reusable sandwich bags)
Week 4: Magnetic Board (made from a ceiling tile)
Week 5: Little Man Shoes
Week 6: Potato Stamped Stationery and Gift Wrap

Love your new blog look - does the ad mean you were accepted in martha's circle? (because if so, yay!)

I'll miss seeing your stuff on SYTYC. You were my favorite crafter of this round.

you're awesome Sarah! You don't need to win the SYTYC competition for us to know that you're the best! ;)

Congrats for making it this far though!

Lila Jo said...

Hey, I gave your this award because I think you really are a beautiful blogger.
Thanks for inspiring me!

Sarah said...

Thanks for the encouragement y'all!

Jill, I'm still waiting to hear from Martha's Circle.

Lila Jo, Thanks so much for the award! I have had a crush on my hubby since 7th grade and it wasn't until late high school that he realized I existed, so I'm totally with you on that one! :)

Oh my gosh I love the book birdhouses. I am mad for birds and bird houses at the moment. Love it. Thanks for sharing.
