I must say that I am so happy to be feeling better!! I am still on the steroids and probably will be for another 10-15 days, but they have done great things for my lungs. Gotta love a good pulmonary doctor!! Anyway, I felt so great this past weekend that I decided to do a little bit of crafting. Ahhh, I have missed crafting so much that when I started making more signs and game boards this past weekend…. well, I went crazy! My sweet hubby cut some boards for me awhile back and I had some leftover pieces of wood. I had him square some up for me and I decided to make myself some more game boards. Did I tell you that I have almost completed my game board hallway? Well, I still have about 5 or so more to sand tonight and then stain them and then my hallway should be completed. I love how it is slowly taking shape. I ordered some different size game board stencils a couple weeks back and I must say that I love that I have so many sizes now. I can make a game board on any size or piece of wood and it looks great. Who doesn’t love a variety – right? Well, let’s take a look at some of my newly created game boards. Are you ready?
So, do you like what you see so far? I also made some new signs for my Mom. Here are her signs and a couple pics of where she ended up putting them. I will be adding these to my selling blog as well just in case any of you are interested.
Don’t you love the crocks sign? I ordered that stencil especially for Mom. I thought it was perfect for her “Crock” stand. I have more pictures that I need to take of Mom’s home…. I went over this past weekend and did some more decorating for her. Things are slowly taking shape and hopefully it will be done or close to be done soon. More pics coming soon!!
Oh…… did I tell you that my Mom and I ordered some new wall border stencils? We ordered them shortly before I got sick and of course they came in while I was sick. Anyway, Mom stenciled my bathroom for me yesterday and I love how it turned out. I was VERY pleased. Thanks Mom!!
So, do you love it or what? Does it totally complete the bathroom or what? I just loved the stencil and well so does my Mom.
I did go to the thrift store the other evening. I found one item, but I will post that either tomorrow or in a couple days. I was upset over one item that I found…. it was an absolutely perfect light. It was an old crock with a handle that was a light. I just loved it, but I wasn’t too sure on spending $20.00 for it. So, perhaps if I go back in a couple days and it is still there then I might snatch it up then, but for right now I am pleased with what I found and for $2.92……yep, I was tickled. The picture of that thrift store item coming soon!!
I will leave you today with a not so funny story and a few words of wisdom for those with small children. Never under estimate a 3 year old. They may be small, but they are smart!! I had my hubby help me outside for a brief moment (probably 2-3 minutes) and within that time frame, Cameron had locked us out of the house. He locked the storm door and shut the other door. He tore down my curtains and well it was pretty darn interesting trying to get back in. Uh yeah, he knew good and well how to shut and lock the door, but had no clue how to unlock it and pull it open. So, just a helpful hint…… NEVER leave your small child inside the house by himself. You could be in for a heap of trouble. Lesson learned!!
