Build a Dream Playhouse Review & Giveaway June 18th - June 26th

Build a Dream Playhouses

A little history behind our Build a Dream Playhouse
At 2 and a half - Davey is a HUGE Elmo fan! 
He watches Elmo's Video  "Elmo's Bus"  over and over!
When I saw these playhouses I saw "School Bus"! It would be so much fun to make one into a SCHOOL BUS so that Davey could play in it
just like his hero Elmo!

The Imagine Wagon arrived packed very neatly into a cardboard box!
When we opened it up Davey's eyes sparkled! 
I told him we were going to make it a school bus!

He got ready and off we were....... making him his special own
Dream School Bus!
We were amazed at how easy it was to build! 
Davey held onto the parts as The Man put the bus together!


Not only is the school bus his favorite video .... he also watches his big brother and big sister get on the bus everyday for school!

This project is a Big Deal for him!
A Dream come true!


Davey is painting his school bus!


Davey's finished project!


He is so proud of his bus!


This was one of the funnest projects we have every done with a child! 
It was truly priceless!
Davey is so proud and excited about his special bus!

"Life is Good"

Thank you Build a Dream Playhouse for giving us these special memories!



Summer Dreams can come true with a

Hello Friday.................................
Let the weekend begin!!!

Have plans for this weekend?


Art Fairs both days for me ......
The 2011 Fair on the Hill at the Chapel on the Hill in Lake Geneva on Saturday





Winter Farmers Market 

and the
Artisan Faire in Oconomowoc on Sunday

Then Uppa North for
a few days of R&R!
I am trying a new product at the art fairs this weekend.  Hair Feathers that can go in and out of our hair.  I have taken two or three of the very popular feathers and attached them to a bobby pin that can be placed anywhere in your hair - then removed when you do not want the feathers in your hair!
Great for the WILD side of everyone on the weekends - then the feathers come out for the day job Monday through Friday!
I also have Gold Tinsel & Glow-in-the-Dark Extensions!
FUN!
Plus, I have made the feathers into earrings....some with just feathers and some with feathers and beads!
Feathers are moving out fast! 
Very Very Popular!
Next week I will be making some Peacock Feather Extension!


Now on to my Major Issue of the day!
So much for fair insurance! 
I am trying to purchase my own health insurance! 
 What a joke!
It is really sad that in 2011 in the United States that every citizen can not afford health insurance! Plus, insurance companies should not have the right to refuse everyone that is not in perfect health
What the heck!
The tell all question ...... Have you been to the doctor in the last 5 years and have you received advise from the doctor!
Yeah! Hasn't everyone that has been taking care of themselves!
They will insurance my car, boat, motorcycle, 4 Wheeler, house, even my dog but for me! we'll even though you do not have high blood pressure, no high cholesterol, non smoker ......... you do have arthritis second to fibermaylagia!
SO NO!
I'm like what?
You can't operate on arthritis or fibermaylagia!
There is no treatment!
What is it going to cost the insurance company?
No meds - cuz I want a $10,000.00 deductible policy that will only cover
major medical!
Don't seem fair to me!
So back to insurance shopping! 
By the time I get done ..... I will have to say YES to high blood pressure!
Anyone else have a insurance story to tell?
Please let me know!

I don't like to use the blog as a place to vent about the wrongs of the world!  All in all I am a very positive person!
But this insurance stuff takes the cake ....... the whole cake!
I'll keep everyone posted as to my luck winning this battle!

Now back to a positive ................
Tomorrow I will be posting the
Build a Dream Playhouse Review and Giveaway!
Win a fantastic playhouse of your choice!
Davey loved it! 
A true one of a kind design!
Making the playhouse with Davey was one of the funnest things
I have every done!

But due to the unfriendly weather ...... we decided to pass!
Rain and cold! this has been a crazy weather year!


Our trip to Wisconsin Dells was really a fun time! Taste of Wisconsin was
a very fun event! The weather could of been a little drier and sunnier on Saturday but all in all not a terrible weather weekend!
  Miss I. and I had a great time!
We can say it was a fun memory making weekend for the two of us!
We forgot to take some pics! :>(
We met some really nice vendors - got a few great leads to other fairs and had many many laughs!
Miss I. went swimming in the pool and we ate at Paul Bunyan's!
Plus, I want to thank Julie for her help!
Thanks! Julie!
Miss I. and I decided count us in for next year! We had a blast!

This weekend we are staying close to home for fairs.
Lake Geneva Chapel on the Hill on Saturday
and 
Oconomowoc Artist Market on Sunday.
Then I am off to uppa north for a few days of fun in the sun ......... not sure when I will be back home!
Busy Summer!

Da has been doing some very fun and rewarding coupon shopping! She is really getting very good with her coupons!  Yesterday she got $198.00 worth of items at Walgreen's for $19.00! 
All items she needed and uses!
Amazing!

Well, I better get going ....... lots of glass to make!  I have been slumping bottles daily and am still behind!  Many custom orders! This weekend a order for a Crown Royal...... I did not have the bottle  .... so Da stopped by our bottle bar and asked if they have any. 
Nope .... but the bottle on the shelf has about 10 shots left in it ... when it is done they are dropping it off so I can make the bottle for her Dad! 
Kick Stand Bar in Camp Lake is fantastic!

Summer in Wisconsin! 
Yesterday was 97 degrees and today is suppose to be even hotter. WOW!

New glasses today! Eye exam too!
Getting a new pair of regular glasses and a new pair of sun glasses.  Got home yesterday from being up-north - put on my regular glasses to watch some TV and I had no left lens! It is gone? NO where to be found!
So I called and made an appointment for today.  
What ya going to do.......nothing......just move on!

Today is a super busy day - making glass....new glasses.....getting ready for the many fairs this week.
Some days I think maybe I have too busy of a schedule ...then other days I am way to slow!  At least I think I am!
This week is a busy.
Farmer's Market's on Wednesday & Thursday.....then leaving for Wisconsin Dells Friday evening for a two day show at the

If you are not familiar with Wisconsin Dells ....it is a huge tourist area. 
It has the most waterparks in the world
...The Waterpark Capital of the World!
Great Wolf Lodge - Kalaharia - Wilderness - Chula Vista are just a few of the water resorts!

I love the Dells!
Dells Boat Tours, LLC/Sunset and Dinner Cruises

So this year I decided to try this venue for fairs. 

In January we did the Flake Out Festival - was a huge success!

Noah's Ark, America's Largest Waterpark Summer is this event Taste of Wisconsin Dells.....

Fall is Wo-Zha-Wa Days! The Man is coming with me in September ......plus J&J...they are planning a fishing trip!



At other fairs we met Julie who owes
Little Diva Bowtique http://littledivabowtiquellc.blogspot.com
 to save on cash Julie and I are going to share a room for two nights.

If you ever go to Wisconsin Dells and want to save on your hotel room....there is a very clean and nice Motel 6 on Hwy 12 very close to the action and it is very reasonable.  Stayed there at the Flake Out Festival, this weekend and plan to make reservations for the September event.
Clean and inexpensive.........my kind of room!
Welcome to beautiful Wisconsin Dells hotel Motel 6 Lake Delton economy lodging
http://motel6-lake-delton.com/

Maybe ......why I think I am so busy this week is the fact that I just might be a little nervous about this weekend!  New event for me and it could be huge!
I will post some pics after the event!
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the event is a success!

Well, I better get moving...woke up at 4am......guess my mind is saying
"Make Glass"
.....again I think I just might be a little nervous about this weekend!

Hope to see you tomorrow.....
 I will have a review and giveaway for
April's Tasty Treats!

One of my favorite memories is when I would play baseball in the backyard with Mr J and Da!  I can remember running around the yard.......laughing! and having so much fun!
Speaking of baseball ..... Mr. J's 1st day of T-Ball!
He is up to bat....hits the ball!
Runs to 3rd!
He was so proud!

Hello Friday!

My F key is not working very well!  When I type sometimes it types sometimes it doesn't........ so if you find a word the should have a f and it does not sorry!  Spell check missed it ..... so it must  be some word that I am sure does not fit in the sentence
View Image
Yesterday, at the Lake Geneva Farmers Market ...I spoke to a plant person about my cucumber plants dying.  He thought that maybe my cucumbers died because of the wind.  I never knew this .......he said that cucumbers do not like wind.  It has been very windy here in Wisconsin and I did have them planted by the fence  .... so they were the first plants in the garden.

I bought 4 more cucumber plants from him and planted them when I got home.  Hope they survive!

It was a very nice market day!  Lots of smiling people out for the nice day!  Sure wish every market was as nice! 
It is amazing what a sunny day does to everyone!
Well almost everyone!

Today lots to do...heading up-a-north!  Breakfast with my Auntie then a little rummage shopping!
Tomorrow I will be at the Elkhart Lake Farmer & Art Market!
I love this venue!
Lots of great vendors - having a fun time!
The customers are happy and fun!

Kingers and I will be leaving in about 2 hours then The Man will be
joining us later today.
Him and Mr. J. are planning a fishing trip on Saturday.
He does love his boat!

Oh yeah!  Yesterday I  received some of the best Customer Service I have had in a long time.  Our Over-the-Stove Microwave broke up-a-north.
I looked all over for the size we needed and I could not find it.  The brand that broke was a Magic Chef.  So I emailed Magic Chef! Right away I got a response.....I called the number and sure enough I could order it directly from them!  It is being shipping to my home at a very reasonable price. They were very friendly on the phone and the email was answered immediately!

My Hat is off to Magic Chef!

The original microwave was 8 years old - so we got our monies worth from the first one.

I would highly recommend a Magic Chef Over-the-Stove Microwave - product performed and when it stopped - they had EXCELLENT customer service!


 Everyone have a fantastic weekend!

See you on Monday for
Music Moves Me Monday
&
Memory Monday!

Stay Safe and Be Happy!

Make sure you keep your glass always full....it makes life so much better!

till tomorrow
