I'm Still Alive!

Hello Friends,
Yes, I am alive and well if you were wondering! Construction is slow going since we keep on adding things for the remodel. It started out with a few walls and french doors to new floors throughout the house and a few other things, which puts my studio being completed till the very end. Sigh....


Sooooo, this is how I have been working. It's CRAZY! We have all the contents of three rooms all shoved into our family room, which incidentally is the main living space for us. Needless to say, the boys have been having a ball climbing all over the jumbled up furniture and making all kinds of forts.


My nice new floor being installed. In all of the homes I've ever lived in, I've never had wood floors. I'm thrilled to death!


I have been able to get some things accomplished...this morning I sewed and painted this little doll. I love the fabric that I "borrowed" from my sister's stash yesterday! Right now I am in the middle of some cute little house ornies for Spooky Time Jingles on the 13th.

She's patiently awaiting a pom pom for her hat...


Ornies for STJ...

Dreamer ....

President Obama! YaY!!!!
Did you vote? What an amazing time to be alive. I can't tell you how many people I've heard say that they never thought this would happen in their lifetime. I'm so proud that my kids get to see at a young age, that anything can happen in America if you work hard enough. I think the USA has been looking pretty sorry of late to the rest of the world so hopefully this reminds people what a great country this really is!

Ok, I'm off to my studio/kitchen to finish some things up!

Have a great day!!!

Don't you just wish you could go on vacation and come back when the remodel is over like extreme home makeover? Looks great though! I am so impressed that you are still productive too!

So many things to celebrate, yes. You will love wood floors, and hope the rest of construction goes like a charm. Lovely doll; hope her pompom is there soon! ;)
