Scrapbooking Week-end

I recently attended a week-end of scrapbooking. These week-ends are always fun and you finally have time to finish some projects. I wanted to try something different and so using chipboard, I made this picture/stand for our guest room. I am able to change the 5x7 photo as the seasons change here at the lake. I really enjoyed making this and hope to make some more chipboard items. Now I just need to find the time.....

Sparky's Haircut

So Sparky had an ear that was absolutely one big matted mess - first time ever so the groomer had to trim his ears right down to nothing. Oh he does not look like our little dog. Guess the hair will grow back.

This is the family room upstairs.

So I have not blogged in ever so long, partly because we took a much deserved vacation this summer and since September have been swamped with work. The house is however moving along and we were excited to move into the upstairs this last week-end. Our bedroom, and family room are basically done except for trim, baseboards and some doors. I love the black and white flooring in the bathroom - wakes you up in the morning. We will install it in the downstairs bathroom and front foyer also. More inexpensive lights in our family room. The scones above (I have two) were 7.50. What a deal! Our bedroom has a very high ceiling and two big windows with pine trees outside. No curtains yet! Our closet is under the eaves so Hubby had to use his imagination to figure out how his wife could get all her clothes in there - well, he did a great job.
