OH.EM.GEE



So I had the the week off from work...I say that loosely as I ended up working almost 20 hours...gah.  What I had intended on concentrating on is a TON of home projects which I'll explain later.

BUT one of the days that I went into work, I had something to look forward to...I was meeting Katie for lunch!  We had salads HERE and ate out on the gorgeous deck overlooking Lake Union.

Check out all the goodness she gave me...


Big Woot Woot to Katie!

That evening, I put some of the stuff to work:


The arrow stamps are Some Odd Girl that I used Fresh Ink/Island & the sentiment {which I love and stacked} is Mama Elephant.

I was inspired by



Patting myself on the back for designing a truly CAS card, not like last week's.

This is Day 2 of painting a total of 4 rooms in my place.  I'm looking forward to the finished look.  Something that I've been meaning to do, and finally getting around to it.

Big shout out to my lovely kidlets that emptied their rooms so that the project could get done.
