I've Got a New Name

My Thought Exactly will soon be known as The Chubby Dove. After much work, by people more techy than I, I have decided to change the name of my business. I will have to start a new blog and update my website and etsy store and all that jazz, but I really like the new name better.

The name "The Chubby Dove" is very special to me. My favorite aunt who was also a dear and loving friend passed away about a year ago after battling cancer. One of her little pet names she called her girls was "chubby dove". So, this name change is kinda in honor of her as well.

Things have been ultra crazy here. Today, my family and I returned from a week long vacation. I'm unpacking and doing laundry. Monday, I will start packing again for our move to NC at the end of the month. At some point very soon, I need to work on my new blog.

Hope you have a great weekend, friends.

Good morning. Here at my house, we are currently preparing for a wonderful week long vacation to St Augustine Beach, but first before I hit the sand, let me announce the winner of my June Giveaway.

Congratulations to Tina, the former owner of a milking cow.

Because I shall not be leaving my chair by the seashore for the next 7 days, I will be shipping out your prize to you on June 15th. I so hope to be going to the post office a slightly tanner version of myself. The monkeys are so excited to meet you and your family.

Have a great week everyone!

Best Friends and Birthdays

My son's last day of 1st grade is tomorrow. He has a friend in his class who is very near and dear to his heart. She made him an award for 'being the best friend she ever had'. Well, of course I had to get a picture of the two of them together. And because we are moving at the end of the month, I also had to make her frame for it.

Saturday, a sweet little person in my life is turning the big 3! I made her this mirror that coordinates with the rest of room. She's a princess and every princess needs a mirror, right?

Lastly, I got an order the other day for two Elmo frames. Here's the first one... have til midnight Friday night to enter to win my June Giveaway. You must comment on THAT post to be entered.
