It's much more laid back

here in the Chamberlain household today!!

The Orkin guy was here and treated for the carpenter ants!!

The roofers were here and finished the garage roof. They will be back next week when Jack's window is in and replace that and start on the main roof!

It looks so much better out there already!

The kids and I are now doing some painting. I bought some flat hinged wooden boxes at The Rag Shop several weeks ago and told them they could paint them. I think it will probably take a week for them to dry with the amount of paint they used on them!

We're just going to take it easy today since yesterday was so crazy!! We'll probably just go outside to escape from the adhesive fumes and then maybe watch a movie. I don't feel like packing up and going to the pool. I think I've had enough of the pool for the season!

I'll leave you with this cool little chalkboard easel I made using Junkitz Coverz, chalkboard spray paint and loads of American Crafts goodies!!! I had this idea in my head since March, sprayed the chipboard about 2 months ago and finally decided to execute the idea before I get the new American Crafts papers (which should be coming from ScrapGal!

Have a wonderful day!

The chalkboard easel is SUCH a cute idea!!!

Glad to hear that the roofing job went (relatively) smoothly! Doesn't it feel amazing when things get finished???
