Doing a little "catching up"!
Several weeks ago, I posted that I had won an awesome canvas from the very talented Christy Tomlinson.  I said that I would post it once it is the beautiful creation.

Christy even signed the back of the canvas for me!  She acutally has a video posted on her blog of making this canvas.  I watched it the day it came out, but had no idea it would be on it's way to my house!

I am so excited to have this in my craft room!  Thank you to Christy!

I also said that I would let you know if I placed at the State Fair with my canvas...Unfortunately, I didn't place this year.  It is a bit of a disappointment, but I will just try again next year!

Now, go create something!

He's Baaaccckkk!

If you are from Texas, you know who I am speaking of!  Today, Husband and I spent the day at The State Fair of Texas.  The weather was perfect.  It was so good to see this guy back on the fair grounds.

This is what happened to him at the end of the Fair last year.  Tragic.

In the hall of state, there is a video to watch the process of bringing Big Tex back in just one year...It was a major undertaking, but it was done.  There are some differences...Not sure that I love the new version, but at least he is back. I have to say....the new boots....not liking them!  They are way too big for him!  That seems so funny to say because he is BIG.  But the boots are just not right!

Welcome Back "Big Guy"!
