Here is an example of the looks we were getting soon after though:
DD whined and complained most of the day and didn't want to ride anything. Everything was too scary. DS wanted to ride Tower of Terror and Rockin' Roller Coaster all day long. However, his parents (me) wanted to see more of the park AND he had to listen to his little sister carry on about how scary everything was.
Soooooo...instead of doing Magic Kingdom on day 2 like originally planned, we slept in and went to Typhoon Lagoon. It was fun for a water park (not my favorite thing to do). But again, DD was too scared to go on the slides. The wave in the wave pool was HUGE! It was fun except that the concrete was sharp and we all got scraped up from the strength of the waves pushing us against the concrete. The lazy river was more DD's speed and we spent lots of time there. My favorite part was the mini donuts we got on the way out. They were fresh, warm, and had just sugar sprinkled on them. YUM!!!!
So, now that we are back, it's time for me to announce the Just Give Campaign I am participating in with the LEST Etsy Team. For the entire month of August your purchase of specially marked items from my shop or any other participating LEST team member shops will go towards the charity of choice of that team member.
My chosen charity is Community Harvest: http://www.communityharvest.org/ Their mission is to provide free and immediate food assistance to those in northeast Indiana. During the month of August, 100% of the purchase price of specially marked items will be donated to Community Harvest. Shop HERE
In addition to getting artisan crafted beads and jewelry, and helping feed the hungry, every customer that purchases an item marked for the Just Give Promotion will be entered in a drawing for a free bead of my choice. I will hold the drawing on September 1st or 2nd (the 1st is Labor Day and I might be busy that day) and announce the winner of the free bead as well as how much was raised for Community Harvest and the hungry here in northeast Indiana.
Check back often for updates to the Promotional items. I will be adding more beads to the campaign on a daily basis. To see additional "Just Give" LEST team member participants, go to http://www.lestbeads.com/ and click on the August Just Give tab.
Make sure you sign up for my newsletter to the right of this blog because I will be having a special "invitation only" sale early fall. It is a double opt in mailing list so you will have to confirm by email that you want to be on the list.
Have a great weekend!
I am feeling rather chatty tonight and have lots of stuff to show and tell. So, you might want to grab a quick potty break before continuing. The good news...there's lots of pictures. The bad news...there are no bead pictures.My friend Lisa Atchison (the one hiding in the back row behind Jim) of Touch of Glass Designs emailed this class photo from the Jim Smircich lampworking class hosted by ISLAGA the weekend of June 28-29. I am on the left in the yellow. I absolutely adore my ISLAGA peeps!
