five for friday

UPDATE 3/19: I updated the pictures of the JCrew knockoff bracelet so they aren't all fuzzy and bad anymore. Go look here.

First of all, I have an amazing giveaway going on right now over on Tatertots and Jello. (WELCOME T&J!!) It's for a leather and chain cuff not available in my store. Sooo exclusive, right?

We signed all our papers and should have the keys to our new home today!! (As long as Fannie Mae doesn't mess anything else up. We're buying the house from them.) We are so stoked. I have tons of plans for the house and can't wait to get started. But first is cleaning. Lots and lots of cleaning.

I am working on a tutorial for the JCrew knockoff bracelet. (With better pictures.) I've just been working on my son's science experiment with him all week. We're cleaning pennies. And ya, it's Spring break this week. The experiment and big poster board are due Tusday, right after Spring break. Love it.

I've been meaning to share these guys with everyone for a while now. Cuz they are just too fabulous to keep to myself. We found them outside in the yard. My dad hung them on nails one afternoon and there they continue to hang. (Have I mentioned my parents are only an hour and a half away now? About 90 miles. As opposed to 1900 miles.) I'm guessing they were some kind of father/child activity. I'm hoping that's what it was. What else could it be?

My computer is still dead and I still don't have photoshop installed on another computer so my pictures aren't so good. And I don't have all my other pictures and documents or book keeping software so I can finish my books and get them to the accountant. (Eeek! Running out of time.) I also haven't linked up to Project 64 lately.

And that's my five, fun things going on for this fine, Friday. See you at Tatertots and Jello! (Did you forget already? Go now!)
