Thermos Giveaway!!

Whew!! This weekend has been pretty busy!! Friday, Phil and I played a round fo golf at an actual course. It's the first time I've been on a golf course since I went with my dad 10+ years ago. (I nailed a goose right in the belly with a golf ball that trip. I decided golfing wasn't really working well for me after that.) Anyways, I've made my comeback. Scored a 63. Pretty amazing, huh??!! Well. Ugh. I'll be honest with ya. I only played 9 holes:P. But, as bad as it sounds, I played about half the holes adequately. I just had a few where I lost my mind. And my ball. I had so much fun with Phil, I can't wait to go again this week! Golfing buddies:).

We had a family wedding yesterday...(Congrats Chrissy and Dave!) everything was so beautiful, and it is always so fun to see Phil's extended family. Wish we lived closer to everyone!

Today, I'm getting artwork finished up, stamps completed, invitations ready to mail, and going to shop for some of Niamh's party supplies. My baby turns eight tomorrow, so she is on cloud nine right now. (Cloud 8 would have sounded better there. Is there a cloud eight? I suppose:). I can't wait to give her our presents tomorrow morning. Philly is about ready to burst. He picked her out three Monster High dolls that she has never even seen before. And, apparently, he gave her a hint. The word "monster." Thank you, Captain Obvious:). He is too cute and sweet!

Onto something fun for you...
I thought this would be the prefect time to offer one of my readers a thermos I had made. Niamh is having a book/nerd/school themed party this year, so this fits in perfect with our festivities:). I chose to try the custom made thermoses out with one of my newer pieces of art.  Turned out really cute! It would be perfect to use in a lunchbox. In an office. Take it on a picnic with your favorite story. Whatever!! It keeps things piping hot or super chilly for 5+ hours. I think I want one for my tomato soup. I love tomato soup for lunch. Or a big glass of spicy V8. Yummy!

  1. Oh' I love this Krista! My kids have these in their lunch boxes and this is too cute, I def think you could sell a bunch of them. What is my favorite book? That's a tough one, I've read many over the years, as I'm an avid reader, but I think one that really sticks out for me is " The Cabinet of Curosities" by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. It's a novel about a Special Agent Pendergast...a very curios but smart fellow and I just fell in love with his character and became hooked on the series! It's a great read! Would love to see more of these and thanks for the chance to win! Happy Birthday to your little one. My oldest is turning 9 on the 19th, boy they just grow up too fast don't they!
    Have a great day!
    xxAutumn

  4. Sorry if this posts twice. I love thriller, mystery crime novels. I wish I could put like "Gone with the Wind" but my fav book of the last few years is "Heartsick" by Chelsea Cain. She is a little twisted but I have read three of the series and can't put it down! I really enjoy your art and your blog!!

  6. I love this thermos! And I loveeeeee books! Thanks for doing such a great giveaway!

    My favorite book? Hm. I would say that it is probably The Diary of Anne Frank or Charlotte's Web. I've loved both since I was a young girl. I've literally read them so many times that I've had to buy new copies because I wear mine out.

  12. Firstly, happy birthday to Niamh tomorrow from me- I don't see why there can't be a cloud 8 :)
    I don't have a favourite book - usually it's one that I've read most recently. I love the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris, vampires, shape-shifters, werewolves, faeries all in the real world? fantastic!
    I just finished "One Day" by David Nicholls which broke my heart but was such a realistic, funny read. I believe it's been made into a film quite recently.
    But the book that affected me most was Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult, I know this sounds melodramatic but I was devastated by this book - I can't say any more than that without giving the game away. I think I took it all so personally because the main character is called Willow, and although my girl doesn't have anything as severe as the condition talked about in the book, my Willow was in and out of hospital regularly as a baby and had several major operations.
    Anyway, I'm a big reader too - always have been fascinated by books, it's something I try to encourage as far as I can with the kids too.
    And finally - as this is now turning into War & Peace, can I just say that has to be the coolest thermos on the planet - it would just be ideal for taking along with me to my demo and class days, full of tomato soup mmmmmmmmmmm

  16. This is adorable! I have two favorite books. "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald. We read it my junior year of high school and I fell in love with it. I had a teacher who was so passionate about the book which in turn made me fall in love with the story. I also love the whole era. Another personal favorite of mine is "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho. I also read this book in high school and loved the lesson the book teaches.

  17. This thermos is soooooooocool.
    That's a REALLY, REALLY hard question.
    I don't think I could name just one even if I tried. My most favorite current book is Water for Elephants but then there is To kill a Mocking Bird, or gosh, yep that is a hard one!

  23. Sounds like you had a terrific weekend. Hppy Birthday to Niamh & it's delightful hearing how excited Philly is for her - such a lovely brother & sister relationship. Love the thermos too - & the quote with it.
    I think the book has to be one I read at school - George Eliot's Silas Marner becauseit charts the loss of faith & redemption of a man & could actually happen - set in Victorian times. Great seeing your Max Lucado books - I read his books about 15 years ago. Think you might like Frank Peretti - This Present Darkness Series.
    Sorry had to delete one comment - hope that doesn't muck up the competition - just realized there were words left out - usual trick of thinking faster than my fingers type.
