My Dixie Classic entries have to be turned in on Wednesday. I've had a MAJOR setback on my doorstop, but no worries, it's still going to rock with a vengeance. However the decorated apple may not happen. It's a time crunch, people, and I think we can all agree that the Artistic and Original Doorstop competition takes priority.
On a happy note, while at A.C. Moore this morning purchasing materials to remedy said major setback, I came across quite the deal on one of the oldest's Christmas gifts.
Aren't they fantastical? They're comic strip drawing pads, with the basic rectangular outline predrawn, plus measurement hatches along the edges, etc. They were on sale for half price, so $5.50 each. COUP!
The oldest will be in heaven, since his career plan for the last two years has been to be the world's first combination automotive engineer/comic strip writer. (The youngest, when queried, will tell you he is already a firefighter.)
