Fireman Hunter

One of the many things Hunter loves to do is pretend to be a fireman! We found this cool hat for 99 cents at the goodwill and Hunter LOVES IT!

1st Dentist trip

Can I just say Hunter got the best patient award ever! He was so excited to go to the dentist and just did amazing and had no issues at all! When the dentist asked me what I did to have him be this good I confessed to him that we had been pretending I was the dentist for the past 3 days! Hunter can't wait to go back!

Ice Skating

This was one fun youth activity! Thanks everyone for such a fun night!

2 cute stories

Hunter says and does the cutest things all day long. Here are 2 stories I wanted to remember.

A good friend of mine called me the other day and asked if Hunter could come to her house and play Lego's for a little while while I did my last hour of work! Of course I said yes! Hunter loves Rachel so he had a blast! Yesterday while Rachel was over she told me a funny thing Hunter had said to her. He walked into her home and asked why she had a glass table in front of her couch and what it was! She told him it was a COFFEE table and then Hunter said, "Rachel, we don't drink COFFEE!!!" So cute

Second story is:

I am in the shower and Hunter is in his room building a fort! He comes running in to tell me my phone keeps ringing. I then say, "are you sure? I have not heard it ring!" He then says, "yes mommy it keeps ringing" I hop out of the shower throw a towel on run down the hallway and grab my phone only for me to see NO MISSED CALLS!!! I then hear, "ring, ring, ring" coming from Hunter's room he yells, "MOMMY I KEEP CALLING YOU AND YOU DON'T ANSWER!!!" I so had to laugh!

Character Corner Creations

I am so excited I started a FB fan page! I have gotten a ton of really wonderful comments in regards to my passion which is giving Character to all things! I love revamping old furniture and making new stuff from scratch!

Super Hero's

Over the weekend Hunter was invited to a good friend's 4th bday party! It was the cutest thing ever! It was a Super Hero Party! They not only had Super Hero training, but they also got to fight the evil villain who at the end just needed friends! Hunter had a blast and the last picture is of him 24 hours later still in the Super Hero mood! So fun!

A Craigslist feud

I don't typically get upset about many things but I would love some feedback as to the Character of People in your opinion! I find I run into wonderful people all the time however, this one is not on my pleasant person list! You see for yourself what you think.

For years now I am been doing furniture and other items! Yes sometimes I see things in a magazine and know that I can make it just as good as the magazine makes it look but before I ever make something I look all over the local area to make sure there is not some other person doing the exact same thing or design! I have been so excited about my fun Chalk boards until yesterday when this add was posted on CL!!!! To me this is just rude! I wrote her a very polite email that just said, "Darling, my only wish is you could have taken my idea and put some sort of a twist on it making it your own."

I would not mind so much except for the fact she is right here in Spokane and to make matters worse, she is underselling me like crazy! I can't even purchase the knobs for under 6 bucks for the smaller one! She just wants me to not sell them! Sadly I don't like the fight and will probably not be selling them anymore unless my friends want them but still it's the lack of integrity that makes me sad!

I find it so sad that someone can work so hard making up their own idea and then for some odd reason someone with no imagination of their own can come along and just try and take away from what you do! I love getting ideas from other crafters but I MAKE IT MY OWN!!!! And before I sell it, out of respect I make sure there is nothing similar to what I am wanting to make! Common Courtesy I say!

My husband and I have been making these chalk boards for over a year and selling them locally here in Spokane! We work very hard on them and make them individual for each person!

Sad that someone can't take a cute idea and at least make them their own! So to the gal or guy that wants to undersell me I am a bigger person than you! Sorry you don't have enough skill to make your own ideas and go with them! I am sure if you can steel my idea you are talented enough to come up with some of your own!

Happy Selling

If anyone is interested in Purchasing the chalk boards that I make Please feel free to email me!
