    pjrbpcoTaylor – I empathize with your spider phobia! My ‘cure’ was accidental ‘immersion therapy’ (get ready – this will make you scream all over again).

    I was sitting on a stone bench outside waiting for a college class to start. When I got up to go inside, I noticed a spider on me and brushed it off without freaking out too badly. But then there was another and another…and more (all different sizes – some quite big)! There were people all around, but I dropped my books on the floor and started flailing my arms around trying to get all those spiders off me! I did manage to go to class after that, but kept checking and rechecking my clothes and books for another spider =:(

    So, I live alone and can kill a spider if I have to, but I can also scoop it into a tissue and take it outside! See, there’s hope 🙂

    Oops — my comment posted before I was finished . . . I think the cherry tying contest was a tie, eh?!! Good times! 😀

  • StamperSharon

    This was my favorite door prize, Taylor — you did a wonderful job on it and it was such a pleasure to finally meet you in person!

  • Julie

    This is awesome! Where do you find the crates? I have the bottles — b/c I knew they would be useful for something, someday. 🙂

  • Gina

    wow, that’s GORGEOUS! I’d be afraid to drink any of it! Super job!!

  • Ashley

    Very, very cute! I saw those crates at my LSS and almost bought them but then I thought, I still need the bottles!
    At my preschool we have a little girl who is allergic to chocolate! What a terrible thing to be allergic to. I recently had gout in my big toe and asked the Doc if it could be all the chocolate I had been eating ( left over from Valentines and Easter) and he said “Maybe, but I can’t tell you not to eat it because it is a mood altering food for women”..mmmm..just what I wanted to hear.
    I’m 6 foot and my husband is 6’3″ so were all giants! I had a friend once who was (is) 6’5″ and weighed about 165lbs. Now that was tall.

  • Rose Ann

    What a yummy door prize….and I LOVE how you’ve decorated it! Super!!

  • Debbie

    Taylor, you’re so cute! I loved your comment about your spider phobia. My daughter is just like you. I read her your comment and she said she would (a) go to Starbucks until someone came home or (b) get a vacuum with a really long hose and vacuum the spider up 🙂 Hmm, then you have a spider in your vacuum. Not sure about that idea! Your frapuccino bottles are super by the way!!

  • Debbie Olson

    What a wonderful prize! I am sure that anyone would be happy to get it!

  • Melissa

    Oh boy – this is awesome!!!

  • Sherrie

    Hey Taylor we must be sisters! I am about 6’1 myself and played vb for Trinity Western. For me it was my ankles not my knees (somethin’ gotta give). Love your creativity and your chocolate door prize is very cool. So where do you go shopping for clothes??

  • debbiedee

    I LOVE chocolate and whoever wins this is one lucky lady!

  • Karen (taiterbug)

    Have a great time this weekend – what a great doorprize – only if I ever won a doorprize like that I would have to share it with my husband – as chocolate for me is a migrane waiting to happen.

  • Viv

  • Lisa

    LOVE the starbucks bottles! They are adorable, can ya’ll pop on over to Tucson so I can get an up close look at them?
    I too am tall, I am 5’11” and I have twin daughters that are 5’11” as well. My father is 6’4″ and I have a brother that is 6’5″ and 3 half brothers that are just as tall too and my half sister is 6’1″. My mom’s favorite saying when she was alive is that she always wanted to be the shortest in the family yet had to have kids as tall as buildings to get that way.

  • Ember

    OMG! I think we are twins seperated at birth! *Except for the chocolate over cheesecake thing… gotta have the cheesecake!* Im 6’1 too! (Size 11??) I also suffer from the ol’ volleyball injury (cept mine’s the shoulder!) Love the starbucks containers! SO CUTE!
