So now that we won, we got to deal with this amazing woman, Dawn, at LifesMomentsCaptured. You can find her on Artfire and Etsy. Come to find out, Dawn, generously offered her services to us. Way too cool also!!! She is such a sweet and patient person. I told her a round about way I wanted the banner to look and she tried many times until I saw exactly what I wanted. She says I didn't drive her nuts but I drive myself nuts so I can only imagine what I did to her...LOL. It was such a wonderful experience working with her and getting to know her.
Here is the new banner and avatar that she made for my mother and I at our Artfire store! Aren't they wonderful. She hit the nail right on the head with these. We liked them so much that we are now purchasing business cards from Dawn!
For you those don't know about the name Baci's Creations. This is the name of my mothers store on Artfire and Baci means grandmother in Polish. My mother is a Baci of 3 grandsons and a beautiful granddaughter!!
You really need to check out all the great work in all of these wonderful and generous stores. Now I would like to come up with something to do that is as nice as Picardcreative did...I would like to spread the love too! I just need to come up with an idea...this could take a while. I would love some suggestions if anyone has some. Pass them along. I would love to hear them!!
I just want to say that my whole experience on Etsy, Artfire and with blogging have been wonderful. I have met some wonderful people and made some new amazing friends! If I never sell anything else on either site or write another post here, I will be grateful for the people I have met and can now call friends!
I also want to send a very special thank you out to everyone who took part in this. It is really nice to know that people are still nice out there in this strange world. Thank you to everyone!!!!

When I make a few bucks I am getting this sign! It would go perfectly on my chicken coop. My girls would have a blessing and stay safe every night from raccoons. I found this at Tolemountain. She has some wonderful signs. Some of the signs are wreaths with animals..very cute! You really need to check out the sheep birdhouse on the first page..it is just adorable!
Now this is one of the coolest things I have seen in a long time! You have to check this shop out! this is a fire pit at johntunger. He uses recycled material and hand cuts these wonderful pieces of art. A bit pricey for me but man if I had some money and a pool....

Tom says he seems to be very happy he is home and is still pretty "goofy". I will explain more of this in the next few days. I am currently working on Bob Bulls and Toms wonderful story of how Bob ended up back running with Tom.
I will be posting this story in the next few days. Please stay tuned. It is a wonderful story! Unfortunately it will be minus pictures but we are working on that right now. It's a little hard when we are 1500 miles away from each other :) but the pictures are coming!

This is the sauce that we found in AZ on our honeymoon almost 8 yrs ago. We can't get hot wing sauce like this up here in CT. So, Thanks to Jen..My husband is a very happy man this Super Bowl Sunday. We had tried soooo many different kinds of hot sauce that we can find here and nothing ever stood up to this sauce according to Mark. Jen...You made Marks Super Bowl!!! Thanks again!
Jen sent us 3 different kinds of sauce,Jalapeno hot sauce, Chipolte-Habanero hot sauce and Habanero. Can you tell which one I used? Well...It's the Habanero! It was sooo hot that Mark had 3 wings and Jessi just about made it through 1!! As you can see by her face it was HOT! They say that is the hottest of them all. After about 15 minutes she was soaking her lips in a cold drink.
So now that we are all stuffed and in the mist of watching the Super Bowl, I have to clean up! I don't watch the game I just like to watch the commercials.
