Currently, it looks like this :
Isn't it lovely?? I'm totally keeping that!! It will not be hanging a light fixture, but I'll find a place for it on my wall for sure!!
Have a great night!

Don't you just love that green paint?? You should see the vintage wallpaper that was underneath it!! Maybe I'll post that another day.
Whoever thought that plaster walls was a good thing was VERY VERY wrong. I'll never be rid of the dust because after insulating the outside walls (currently, there isn't any in them) we have to drywall. More dust. I think I'm done with the idea of renovating any more of this house.
Off to treat the blood blister received after pinching my pinkie between the truck and the 10 gallon pail. Have a good day.

Saturday night hubby and I went on a date (huh, what??) to a buck 'n doe for friends of ours that are getting married next month. It was chilly as it was outside, but I had a good time talking to adults (huh, what??) and just chilling after a busy Friday and 4 hours of cleanup on Saturday. The kids stayed at my in-laws and played Wii. The Wii fit told me that my real age is 55. NOT cool. Guess I'm going to do something about that.
So, for this week I'm going to stay home. It's been too busy and the house and my kids are suffering. They always get the short end of the stick when it gets crazy busy like this, so that's got to stop. Tonight I'm making a really nice roast beef supper, and we're just going to have a relaxing afternoon and evening.
Now I'm off to work on my May SPS projects.
Have a great day!

I picked up my new glasses yesterday. Yep, my eyes are getting old. (hee hee) I don't have to wear them all the time, just for detail work, reading, night driving and computer work. Wait a minute, for me that pretty much IS all the time!! Renee was so confused when she saw me wearing them asking "When did you get glasses??" We told her 2 years ago. We totally had her fooled for about 20 minutes!!
My fab May kit came yesterday too, so now I'm also busy with that, but it's a good kind of busy!! =D
Have a great day!

I said we scrapped, so here's what I got finished this weekend. This one is for Colour Combo #117 :
I'm still on my heritage kick, so these pictures are of my Grandmother and my Great - Grandmother on my mother's side in 1926. My Grandmother was about 1 or 2 years old.
And this one is for the Page Maps sketch contest at my LSS this month :
These pictures are of my DS on the first day of school this year.
Have a great day all!!

And I'm so excited to have it!! I've never owned a circle cutter yet, I just used my plates and pot lids to cut around. In fact, I really don't have that many tools at all - no Cricut or other diecutter (gasp), no Cuttlebug or other embossing system, all I have is a CropaDile. Sad huh?
Have a good day!

I hate winter.
Have a good night.

We got snow last night. Not a lot, but that stinks too.
On an up note, I was inspired by Colour Combo #115 yesterday and managed to finish this page :
This is my YDD on her baptism day. Not a great pic, but the best one I have in this dress. It was made by my great grandmother out of one of her slips around 1907. My grandfather, father, myself and all of my children have been baptised in it; we just change the colour of the ribbon (pink or blue) with each baby.
Stay healthy & have a great day!

It's been way too busy these last few weeks and it's finally caught up with me; I'm fighting off another cold. I can't remember the last time I was sick so many times in one winter. So, it's vitamin C and echinacea for me again. Thankfully, tomorrow I finally get to sleep in past 6:30 again and man, I really need it, I'm so very tired today.
I have another LO made with the April kit, but it's dull and pouring rain today, so I can't get a good picture yet. Hopefully it will clear up sometime this weekend.
My hubby volunteers on a City committee, and yesterday we got a letter in the mail offering us a "thank-you for your service" gift of tickets to the symphony on May 2! So this year, we're going to go. Hey, wouldn't that be kinda like a date?? Huh. ;)
Have a great weekend, all!!
