So we had some excitement at our house this weekend 🙂 You all know how I like DIY projects and I can talk Kevin into just about any project!  He’s been dragging his feet about taking out a wall between the kitchen and dining room.  I finally talked him into it saying…you only have electricity to move and it will be easy.  So we opened up the wall and this is what we found!


Water Pipes!  Ooops!  Needless to say we have a LOT of work to do today!  🙂


New Baby!

so happy to have arrived home yesterday around 2 pm.  After a quick trip to town to the bank, the grocery store and to pick up the dog we got right to work on some of the orders that we had piling up.  We also had to mow the lawn again.  Hoping for a nice warm day today but it is looking pretty cold.  I even turned the space heater on in the bathroom this morning 🙂  It’s  off to work!

just a quick post tonight before I forget!  We arrived home from Akron, OH sometime around 2- 2:30 pm, picked up the dog from the kennel, had some lunch/supper, started the laundry, and then headed out to the shop to get  some work done!  We had some orders that had come in while we were gone and  a few special orders from the show and then we need to get ready for the Sayner,  WI show that is this weekend.  SO a busy week ahead!  🙂  Hope your Monday was a good one.

just a quick post today since my schedule is a little full!  Here is a simple baby card.  I think the doily lace punch from martha stewart is probably one of my favorite punches!  I’ve worn a couple of them out already.  just adds a girly touch!

Have a great weekend!  I hope to get the final touches done to complete the laundry room re-do.  Painting pegboard, cleaning out the closet, rebuilding the shelves and painting the inside of it.  Cover the blinds with fabric.  Re-purpose an old end table into the cat’s feeding station.  That should about do it! 🙂

baby tagWhew!  We have been pretty busy!  So busy I forgot to blog yesterday 😦

We got up early yesterday and finished making stamps and getting ready for Allentown, PA show.  Due to the snow storm that was predicted across the midwest area; we decided to leave late in the day on Wednesday.  We finally arrived at the hotel at midnight.  We still had 13-14 hours to go today – so up early and we have finally arrived in PA.  We can’t get in to set up until 10 am so no need to get up early in the morning. 🙂

Here’s a sweet little baby tag.  We are trying to get all the cards from our booth posted on the blog and this is part of that collection.  Hope your day was a good one and tomorrow looks like the weather will be awesome!
