Grand Prize Excitement!

Hey Guys! Guess What I Won!

Wanna See More?!

Ta Da!!

Pretty Cool, Huh?!

Ok, so heres the story! My Favorite Store, Room With A Past was having a Raffle/Drawing! You got tickets for coming, bringing friends, and your purchases. Ok, I never expected to win. But I did, however, looong to win! :) Winning would be great! I mean, after all, it is my favorite store in the whole world! You could probably say I am their biggest fan. Although, it being a great store, I am sure others think they are the biggest fan. :) But I just may have them beat. Every time, I get a compliment of furniture or cute items in my home, I always say...."I got that from Room with a Past" I mean, my home is filled with treasures from them. :)

Well, yesterday morning, I got THE Call!
I won! So Excited!

Of course, I called my husband first! Because he loves the store just as much as me! Then I called my mother! And of course she was ecstatic too. :) My mother in law also called me to say congratulations. Thanks to her for coming on Sunday, I got 2 extra tickets! Can you tell, I am super excited!? Ok, enough writing....off to the pictures! The adorable shabby chic, vintage bird cage was filled with goodies....oh ya, did I mention the 100$ Gift Certificate!!!? :)

Chapstick Cozy Purse Accessory

I am so excited to share with you my newest store item - a Chapstick Cozy! I found many different kinds of pictures for chapstick cozies and decided to blend everything I saw with a few twists of my own. I think it turned out perfect! I have already made one for me and one that is listed in my store. I am also going to be making a couple as gifts for friends. I am also planning on making more for my store depending on how well they sell. So dont forget to check out my store listing at: Chapstick Cozy

Website Launch

For the past week, I have been working on my craft website, BekahJan's Whimsical Ventures. It is finally up and running. I still have a few more things left to do, including blog posts. I am stopping my recipe site, because as much as I love cooking and recipes, I have decided it is time to move onto my real passion....crafting. My vision for my website is to have helpful information, tutorials, links, books, photos, and more from different types of crafts/projects I am working on.

I am also excited to display some of my crochet pattern designs. I have already sold 2 patterns and cant wait to complete my current designs. I have also been absorbed in Quilting and Knitting. There is just so much to learn and so little time. Only 2 more months and I will have that crafting room! Cant wait!

Don't forget to stop by and sign my guest book!

Apartments here we come!

Harrison and I are so excited about our upcoming move. Granted it is only one mile away from where we are now. But it is also one mile closer to our families and work and seconds from the freeway. We will be nestled into the hill side in a two bedroom apartment. We cant contain our excitement! I wanted to share with you the layout. It is aprox. 1092 sq ft. or bigger if you include the patio. I have been taking pictures of their building progress and will post that soon. They just finished the exterior painting and are starting on the landscape and the inside. It looks like we will be moving now at the beginning of October instead of September 15! But that is ok, it will give us more time to prepare financially and more time to pack!
