Disney Shopping and The Masters!!

WOW!!  Two-weeks since I updated my blog!  I have been busy!! First thing, please send positive thoughts to the universe or say a quick prayer because I applied to have 80% of my student loans forgiven because I work with special needs students!!!!  I won't know anything for 60 days!!!

 I have a small finish to show off...Isn't Bambi just the cutest?????  

I know I am involved in the Stitch from Stash but my Uncle gave me a GC for my birthday (which was in February) this past month.  I was in Hobby Lobby minding my own business when these 3 kits just jumped in my cart and begged to come home with me!!!!! So I couldn't deny them!! My GC was for $40 and all three kits with the HL discount totaled:  $23 so I am under budget since I used Birthday Money!!!

The Masters tournament was this weekend so I dug out my Augusta the 13th hole to work is nothing but trees and a tiny bit of sky!!

My new Thirty-One adventure has been keeping me busy.  DH asked me why I am doing this and my reason for him is that I enjoy meeting knew people and getting out of the house  My REAL why, which I am keeping secret from him, is because I want to surprise him with a $0.00 balance on my student loans!!!  If they are forgiven then I need have 200 - $200 parties!  Doing this, we will be completely out of debt...No Car payment or student Loan payments!!!! This is my goal!!!!

Would anyone be interested in an Online Stitching Retreat the weekend of May 16-18?  It would be held in my Thirty-One yahoo group.  There will be stitching prizes along with some Thirty-one product prizes.  This is the Stitchers Hermit weekend so we will all be stitching!  I will have HS graduation Saturday morning (8th year in a row to graduate and they keep making me come back!) but the rest of the weekend will be stitching and chatting!!!  

Let me know if are interested...invite a friend!  It will be fun!

I ordered the full Fantasia stitch, but the stupid thing still hasn't come in yet! Congrats on getting yours!

Oh, how are the twist-up colored pencils working out? I bought some, but until the April A to Z Challenge is over with, I won't be able to test them out.

Love Bambi :) Good luck with your student loans, my daughter is already dreading graduating because the loan payments will be right behind it and with getting a masters it seems she has been in school FOREVER!

So jealous! You got Fantasia - That one went on my 'want' list as soon as I found out they were making it :) And congrats on your goal of zero debt - that is a huge step, and a big relief! You can do it, I'm sure :)
