ColorInc. Canvas Winner and a Few Other Things

by jessicaturner on October 18, 2009

I was blown away by all of you that came out of the woodwork for the ColorInc. canvas giveaway. I wish I could have given more. :)

The lucky winner is:

S said… 69

I have a great picture of my father in his pumpkin patch that I would love to see canvased!
I also became a facebook fan!
Love it!

S – Please email me your address ( by Wednesday, or I will pick a new winner.

If you didn’t win, ColorInc. is having a big sale where you get 50% off one item, including canvases, if you are a new customer. So, if you had a picture in mind that you wanted to have gallery wrapped, now is the time to do it. I know my sister is having one made from her engagement pictures. I know it will look great.

I am going to CA for a three day work trip Monday – Wednesday and Matthew is out for a speaking gig Tuesday – Thursday, so my Mom is coming to take care of the peanut Tuesday – Friday. I have never been to CA, so I am looking forward to it. I will be in Santa Ana for one day and Berkley area for two days directing photo shoots. I am so excited to have Mom here while I am away. She hasn’t seen Elias in forever. Her visit has been extra motivation for my to do list, which I updated below, with a few other things I accomplished in addition to the original list.

  • Dust – did some of this. I hate dusting. :)
  • Vacuum – done
  • Caulk the bathroom tub – done
  • Scrub the floors – going to do tonight, after dinner
  • Complete next week’s Thursday Giveaway (it is a home decor item you are going to love) – I think this is going to be next week’s giveaway :)
  • Create a couple projects for Xyron – did one, but will do more next weekend. Projects are due to them at the end of the month.
  • Do a mini shoot of Elias – it has been a while since we did this (not counting the beach!) – when he gets up from his nap
  • Major Target trip – done
  • Laundry – a couple loads done
  • Visit my friend Alyson – this was awesome :)
  • Dinner with my friend Melissa and her baby Jack – awesome, too. :)
  • Make food for this week, so Mom doesn’t have to worry about cooking – done (meatloaf, crock pot chicken and potatoes and peanut butter cookies)
  • Grocery shopping – tonight or Matthew will go tomorrow.

I need to go nap now – I have a migraine coming on.

How has your weekend been?

I don't exactly know. I am staying at the Rose Garden Inn… does that help? :)

AHH… I love how those special visitors bring us that extra motivation for the 'to-do' list! :) Have a wonderful trip!!

Yup, I know exactly where that is:) It's not too far from Cal's campus…my husband is getting his PhD at Cal. Have fun while you're here:)

P.S. I would definitely take you to lunch or dinner while you're here, except that my parents AND grandparents arrive here on Tuesday. Maybe you have another friendly blog reader out here:)

My husband and I grew up in WI (Waukesha/Pewaukee), and our daughter is only a couple weeks younger than Elias, so I always read your blog and think "We would be friends if we lived in the same place!":)

That sounds nice and all but,

1. How is your Mother feeling?


2. How are your sister's wedding plans coming along?? Is there an awesome "27 dressed"" type gown you are wearing?????

:) Enjoy your hotel sleep without Elias in the next room. The first time I slept in a hotel after #1, I woke up 3 or 4 times freaking out looking for my crying baby. :)
