On Monday the girls were off from school, and we spent most of the day working on their overloaded playroom. It's still a work in progress, but we're getting there:
On Tuesday or so, I saw a really cute smallish entertainment center that would have made a PERFECT shallow doll room with storage underneath at Goodwill. It was a good price, too. However, I am officially out of room for more furniture in my house (and trust me, I did all sorts of mental rearranging to try and make it fit). ;) Here it is:
Can't you just picture some scrapbook paper for wallpaper (to cover up the little hole they made for the TV cord) and lots of goodies stashed in the drawers? According to my mom, it's still there. I'm being strong and staying away from Goodwill for a while, especially if they lower the price even more. :}
For the past couple of weeks, I've been checking my local Target almost daily for the new Valentine's Day exclusive Mini Lalaloopsy for 2015, "Valentina Hugs 'n' Kisses" (thanks to the Lalaloopsy Fan Club forum for the heads up). No sign of her yet. :} Instead, I grabbed a few Care Bears blind bags:
Here they are in the display on the shelf. They're $2.49 each.
Since I'm impatient, I took pictures in the car so I could open them right away. ;)
Here are all of the possible bears to collect.
And I got:
Tenderheart Bear and...
...Funshine Bear! Two of my faves from childhood! :D Aren't they adorable?
In other news, I've been keeping busy finishing up my artwork for the postcard rewards I'll be sending to my Kickstarter backers. I received my first postcard order, and they look great!
Sorry it's not the best picture. This is a sneak peek, though, after all. ;)
I signed and dated each postcard in the corner.
Here's a sneak peek at the other artwork that will be featured in the next batch:
I hope this gives my backers something to look forward to. ;)
And speaking of my backers, it's time to give my weekly shout-outs! :D
This week, my new backers were:
-Kim and Lindsey Z.
(As always, if any of you have a website you'd like me to link to, please let me know in the comments!) :)
I'd also like to thank my local doll club and my Aunt Cindy, who contributed funds toward the conference outside of Kickstarter.
Of course, the most exciting news is that I have officially met my $450 goal with 15 days to spare!!! Hooray!!! :D :D :D This means that I will officially be able to afford to go to Mount Hermon! :D
I was practically hyperventilating yesterday when I realized that this was actually happening! I can't believe I'm really going! It was so wonderful to see how the Lord provided the funds in so many unique ways. I received pledges from both close friends and people I've never met before. God is good. Of course, He's good even if I don't get to go to a conference, but I'm so thrilled that He saw fit to allow me to get the funding I needed.
Now I've got to keep writing and get that book finished! :D
I hope to get the mini DAC Frozen post up later today, but Middle Gal is home with a tummy ache, so I'll have to just play things by ear. Talk to all of you again soon! :)
