Fast Cars and Liquid Love

Reagan entered the AWANA Grand Prix this year for the first time. Scott and Reagan carved and painted this race car. (Yours truly did the beautiful detail work ... like those green eyes) The car turned out to be a mix between Dinoco-The King, and, well... something else, I just don't know. The paint was barely dry when it was time to race thanks to a bit of a cold bug and good old procrastination. Lo and behold, we had a winner in the Speed category!!! First place trophy was awarded, Reagan's first trophy ever at age five. Life is good.

And I must say, when the day is rough or things are not going as they should there is one thing that will always bring a smile to my face -- My hubby coming through the door with a big cup of liquid love just for me!!! The Cup N Muffin is the local coffee drive-thru, and a Caramel Macchiato from them is like a little bit of sunshine on a rainy day. Thanks, Scott, for bringing me a bit of light on a cloudy afternoon.

Next posting I will try to get to my secret life -- trying to make clothes and quilts. I am never quite the inventor, but I can copy an idea like no other. My latest have been Anna Maria Horner's tunic from her book Seams to Me: 24 New Reasons to Love Sewing. I also made a doll quilt using an inspiration from Material Obsession by Sarah Fielke and Kathy Doughty. And So, for my one faithful friend, Amber ... you will see these posts later ... not a year later, like in the next day or two -- I promise!
