Invites done & KLRN Auction...

I have been working all week....well, ok not the WHOLE week, working in between going to lunch, relaxing and enjoying our summer time...on my order for 60 baby shower invites and 30 shower favors! I am really happy with how they all turned out!

60 invites w/matching envelopes & labels...and 30 nugget matchbox favors! I am completely done with the entire order!! And 4 days early too! Woo Hoo!! Yea me!! Doing the happy dance! :)

Also this week we have been doing our annual tradition of the bidding on the KLRN Auction!! We LOVE doing this every year and even one year went and volunteered on the phone bank!

This was a FEW years ago but we had such a blast doing it! We usually only go for the dining certificates but sometimes we get "other things"... like our horse DAKOTA!! Funny story!! Every year we would see the Mini Horse up for auction and think "wow that would be so cool!!" And every year the horse would sell for WAY above the opening bid! So one yr, Kurtis, after having just a few too many drinks, thought it would be funny to bid on the horse! So we put the opening bid ("Huh Huh, think of the best Beavis & Butthead laugh here,we bid on the horse!!")...and waited for the other bids to come in! It usually would be on the boards for a couple of days before we waited...and waited...and WAITED! NO BODY bid against us!! Wait..WHAT??? OMG! We own a horse??? Why is it that when we put the opening bid, no one else bids AT ALL!!??? So needless to say, we now have Dakota! Not the "funnest" pet but what are ya gonna do?? :)
 This pic was the week we got him! Trevor (age 6 maybe?) was THE most excited! Until he learned you couldn't actually ride the horse! LOL! So now he is just a big lawn ornament out in the backyard!

And one more funny story about the auction before I go...we started watching & bidding 16 yrs ago this yr...And you may ask..."How do you KNOW you have been doing this 16 yrs?" Well, let me tell you!! I was pregnant with our oldest, Travis, and we were bored one night & started watching. Lo & behold they had BABY STUFF on there!! SO we bid and won!! After you win the item, you have to go down to KLRN to pick up the item. The night before I decided I would go the next day to pick up our new stuff, woke up in the middle of the night having contractions!! BUT I wanted my stuff!!So off I go, IN LABOR, and 3 days PAST my due date!! I was trying not to let anyone know I was having contractions!! Crazy! And ever since then, we are hooked and can't wait for June to watch our 1 week auction!! So every year we have tell Travis that story as we go down there and pick up our new goodies! We have gotten to know everyone that works down there and are greeted with hugs when we go in! It's like Norm @ Cheers!! "Tatsch Family!!" LOL!!

So this week (until Saturday at least) there has been NO crafting or anything else in the evenings! We are glued to our auction!

I will be working on some crafting next week though...and no orders (as of yet!) so it will all be fun, new things I want to try out! I just recently got my Gypsy (LOVE IT!!) and want to sit and play with it and figure out all the bells & whistles!

Until next time...
