Some new stuff and a sneak peek.

I have been happily summering away. Sleeping until noon, watching Golden Girls marathons, renting entire TV seasons from Net-Flix and making $600 at a garage sale. That's right. 600 DOLLARS. It did not come easy, however. I toiled away for an entire week, meticulously arranging all of my treasures and labeling them with tender love and care. Luckily I had some good company to drink wine and swim with help me organize and price all of my crap treasures. I really wish I would have taken pictures this monstrosity of a garage sale. If it wouldn't have been 1/4 my own stuff, I would have been in shopping heaven! Unfortunately, I promised myself not to bring anything home with me and had to leave empty handed. The other 3 ladies made a killing too, I can't wait to do it again!

I made these for a band student who graduated this year. I have made a lot of other stuff lately, but have been way too lazy to take pictures!

And, alas, a sneak preview of my craft palace. I want to do an entire post and show the embarrassing before and after pictures, but for now this will have to do. Justin made the entire thing for me. It's made of cabinets and kitchen laminate. This picture is before it was painted and had hardware on. I love it. I'm pretty sure it's the world's most amazing thing! Tosca also enjoys laying on the ground and staring at me while I work in there.

I am so sunburned!

I have a ton of things that I need to post about, but I have pictures that need to be uploaded with all of those things so it is not going to happen tonight! Expect future posts on these subjects -

1. My brand-new, freaking awesome CRAFT PALACE!
2. A bunch of new projects (tiles, flower pots, frames..)
3. How to make your own blog header and background.

Although I do know how to make my own blog header and background, I apparently do not know how to get my stupid header to center on the page! It's very frustrating!

In extremely big news - I have purchased the domain name I have yet to do absolutely anything in terms of creating a website (since I have no idea where to even begin) but at least I have a name?

I have also weaseled my way in to a garage sale this coming weekend and am hoping I can make some money off of random assorted crap that I have found laying around our house. I may or may not be selling a broken bike, 2 laundry baskets worth of t-shirts, Justin's childhood golf clubs, an 8 foot pink furry gorilla, and lots of furniture that I never actually paid for. Sounds like some good stuff to me!

Well, I am off to watch some more television series that were cancelled after 2 seasons on Netflix. It's extremely addicting. I will return with pictures soon. Maybe.

testing, 1 - 2 ...

I think this color shows up a lot better?


After much trial and error, I think I have finally got my signature working! Maybe..


yay it's summer!

I learned how to change my title font, i think it's pretty cute!

I've been playing around with my blog tonight. I think I like the new background! I still don't really know what I'm doing and can never get the backgrounds that I make to center on the page correctly. Let me know what you think?
