This weekend has been full of home improvement projects - I love it!! Nothing like a good 'ol trip to Lowe's or Home Depot for fresh paint, lumber and cleaning supplies!!
Chris starting working on Man World! He is building suspension train platforms in our garage. He will be moving all of his train and radio stuff out there!! Do you know what that means? I will finally have my whole scraproom back again!!! Yippeee!!! It's been probably a year and a half since I've had the room to myself!! As you can bet, I am glady helping him build and move his stuff! I'm starting to plan what I can do with that side of the room. It will include more storage, can never have too much of that. I'll probably put a little tool area over there with my Sizzix and Cricut Expression. A kid craft area is also going over there. I'll move Macy's IKEA table out of her room and into there. It will probably be another month or so until it is all out of there, but I can't wait!!
I painted our porch posts and front door to match our new siding. The put it on the front of the house today and will finish off the rest tomorrow!! It looks so nice and is putting our 1950's windows to shame!! After we get our kitchen estimate, we will be calling our guys for the new windows too!! Can't wait until it is all finished!! It looks so nice! It'll be like a brand new house again!
I painted the trim that will frame the new window in Jack's room. They are coming to finish up the last touchups on the drywall and then I'm going to paint and they'll come back and put the window trim up. I've got baby border to take off in his room too, yuck!! That stuff usually comes down easily though, let's hope that's the case!!
So many things planned!! Hoping we can meet up with the cabinet maker this weekend!!
The week is full of fun stuff!! Jack starts preschool tomorrow and he will be turning 3 on Saturday!! If we don't go to the cabinetmaker on Sat, we'll be going to Knoebel's (a great family amusement park), if not, we'll go on Sunday!!
Here is one of my latest layouts. This is my Pop (great grandfather) too. Not sure when this pic was taken, but by the background, I think he may be on the Atlantic City boardwalk.
Oh, check out the new GalBlog at ScrapGal. The design team is going to be posting inspiration there at least every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday!! Right now there are a lot of RAK's going on for the blog debut!! There is also a great Basic Grey contest going on! Just upload a layout using BG and we will draw a winner from a hat on the 17th, I believe. The winner will receive 1 sheet of each of the 4 new lines!! How cool is that?
Hope everyone had a great holiday!!
I am now off to blog hop, I haven't done that in so long and miss catching up with my favorite bloggers!!!
