High Five for Friday...digging deep.

High Five time again....it comes around every Friday!  It almost didn't happen this week because I've felt like death warmed over and when I first thought about 5 good things from the week, I couldn't come up with anything.  When I stopped and really thought about it though, I knew there were at least five good things in my life that happened this week.  Sometimes you just have to look past the bad and realize that there's still really great things in your life.
{one}
Finding Nemo in 3D came out today!  I'm not really sure when I'm going to have a chance to see it, but it will happen.  I will be "seaing" it.

This week, I tried to paint Avery's fingernails.  She was GREAT while I was painting them.  In completely and utter awe of what I was doing.  She sat still for the whole thing.  It was the sitting still for the drying part that we had trouble with.  Evidenced by nail polish all over my comforter, hands and her pacifier.  Maybe we'll try again in a few months.

This week was the Kentucky Kid's Consignment Sale.  I got to shop early (2 days before the public) and got some pretty great things...like a Minnie Mouse dress for $5 and Avery's Halloween costume for $7.50 (it's a surprise).  I also decided to sell this year.  There's 1 1/2 days left and I've made $42.  Hopefully the rest of my stuff sells!

Last weekend was my mom's *cough*-th birthday and I wanted to get her something special.  I shopped around for weeks for the perfect gift for her and came up empty handed everywhere I looked.  So I decided to go the homemade route and made her this canvas.  Hopefully I can get my schedule under control and start painting and selling again soon!
{five}
The Frazier History Museum in Louisville is debuting an exhibit on Princess Diana, opening this weekend.  I'm obsessed with Duchess Kate, just like my mom was obsessed with Princess Diana in her day.  The exhibit has some of her outfits she wore on dignitary trips and family heirlooms and jewels.  And......her wedding dress!  I already have my tickets for Sunday.  Can't wait!

Hope you guys don't have to dig deep to find some really great things from your week.  :)

I saw that exhibit when it was here in Grand Rapids last year, just before the big wedding. It was so much fun to see everything. Totally worth it!!

How did you do the words on the canvas? It looks great!

I free handed it. I picked a font from kevinandamanda.com and painted it. But I'm trying to save money to buy myself a Silhoutte machine so I could just print the letters and use them as stencils. Until then--I freehand!
