Some Exciting and Randomness stuff

First off I want to apologize, I have been really really busy this week and I am behind on posting, commenting, and emails. I am playing catch up as we speak! Today we celebrated Koen's 3rd birthday. It was a blast! He specifically asked for a bubble party and a car cake. I thought it would be a fun idea for me to personally take on the task of creating this cake with wheels.....big mistake! It was a task I was not ready for to say the least. But I sucked it up and did my best. He loved it, so that's all that matters!

Here he is blowing out his 3 candles on his tank cake, fork in hand ready to dig in.

Little man had me relight them 4 times so he could keep blowing them out!

Another thing that has kept me over the top busy this week.....Kayla had to create a project for school that determines if she passes on to 5th grade. She used some wonderful MOSD products on her project, and it's currently being featured (by a proud momma, of course) on the MOSD blog! Please head on over there and leave Kayla some love. She would love to read it. And THANK YOU!!

My big announcement!! I am SO very excited about this as it is something rather new and different for me to! I received an email from Karan Gerber this morning telling me that I had made the new Sketch Design team at SKETCHABILITIES! I was so nervous when I sent my application in because I am SO SO new at sketches. I had only created 4 when I initially sent my app in. I wrote it up, hit send, and held my breath for 3 weeks...until this morning! Thank you Karan for this opportunity. You have no idea how excited I am to be doing this!!!

**Freebie Friday will be back next Friday! I have some great stuff planned!!
