Gotta laugh

KT, hope you catch this over here, didn't want to leave an anonymous post on your other blog but WTG getting the puter replaced but TOO funny the little inserts about the music on hold!!! crack me up

Hump Day!

Floor is DONE!!! Sheldon is installing the trim as we speak, I'll get pics up later.

Have been spending some time at LRS, SoML and a few others for possible second kit clubs. Really cool stuff out there, not many with techniques but a few.

Talk is up at ScrapGoods about the new Design Team, who's going to try out and all. I haven't decided is I want to try again. Two years in a row was absolutely amazing to me, three would blow my mind!

The drama over there during the past year, year and a half maybe, has drained me emotionally. Three major blowups and it seems to always be the same people in the middle. They manage to twist it to look like everyone elses fault except them. And pull in newbies to "align" themselves, while at the same time telling people not to "align" with me. Give it a rest. No one needs to align with me. I speak for myself and my friends speak for themselves. But I will point it out if there are out and out malicious attacks, that's different. Can't believe no one wants to put a stop to it. "Avoid conflict". Well I have never found that avoiding something eliminates it. But I guess the next blowup will tell the tale. Unfortunately, I'm quite sure there will be.

But I still have LOTS of good buds there and man oh man is that a talented bunch! I really have to put on my best sb hat to keep up with them! Oh and LizE is thinking about trying for DT, Liz if you are lurking here I say GO FOR IT!!!

Later dudettes.

Move into the nook

See that closet behind the armoire/cabinet? Two feet deep, eight feet long. Can't use more than 3 or 4 feet of it.

So let's get rid of it. Reduced the actual closet area to the far left three feet wide, open up the other five feet, install shelves floor to ceiling.

It helps having a handy hubby (hi Sheldon). Painted the walls inside a sagy green, rose gloss on the shelves. Some are 10" deep, some 14". Spacing between varies to accommodate different items.

Cool huh! All loaded up with goodies. Still some trim out to do and there will be a light in there. Also a curtain is going up to hide it all.

Stay tuned, there is the rest of the room you know....

Next Phase

Then there was the move to the armoires:

The ever present:

Those armoires worked pretty well for quite some time. The Display Dynamics paper trays fit inside the shorter one perfectly. Close them both up and it all disappeared.

Happy Valentines Day!!

We're keeping it simple this year but I had made a card a while back with a ScrapGoods card kit, added some Imaginese and Prima blowers with a Bazzill brad, MM charm. The stamp is a Heidi Swapp corner stamp but I just inked part of the stamp at a time. Added a little pen stitching. On the envelope I wrote: To My Totally Hot Rocking Hunky Hubby. Think he'll like it?
