Winner + New Zealand Updates

Hi friends! Wanted to do a quick blog post to announce the winner of $20 worth of goodies from Sweet and Sassy Cakes from the Royal Wedding Blog Hop.....

Kim H.!!!!! Congrats Kim! Shoot me an email so I can get you connected. I can't wait to see what she creates for you.

I am packing up here in Hawkes Bay to head out on a 10 day adventure to the South Island of New Zealand. We will be traveling via campervan (what we in the States call an RV) which should be fairly interesting, considering I don't really camp. HA! However, the RV does have a shower and a heater so I should be fairly ok I think? I'll let you know how I handle it ;) We have a packed schedule but the sites we are going to see blow my mind online so I'm sure it's going to be even more amazing in person! A couple of our sites have wifi so maybe I will get to upload some pictures and do a few quick blog posts. Here is our campervan we are renting:
And here is our journey on a map:
A few destinations I'm excited about: Dunedin, Cadbury Chocolate Factory, Speights Brewery, Otago Peninsula, Taieri Gorge Railway, Te Anau Glow Worm Caves, Milford Sound Scenic Cruise, Queenstown, Franz Josef Glacier, Christchurch and Kaikoura Whale Watch. Just a few things packed in!

I have also been busy the past few days creating some art pages in my Brave Girl journal so I can work on my Soul Restoration class while there is nothing else to do on the road besides journal. I am really loving this class, it's making me brave as a person as well as introducing me to some really fun, carefree art techniques with paint and mod podge. I am starting to also do a lot of vintage work which I am ADORING.
Alright, enough Erin ramblings. Hope to see y'all soon! Can't wait to get back to my craft room and start creating again. The floor is getting rather uncomfortable :)

Oh and p.s. Thank you to all of our past and present U.S. Military who have fought for our country and our freedom. You make us proud! xoxo
