making progress..... check it out




the staircase (temporary) is up...the finished one will have real finished oak and white spindles but at least we can now go up there...
we had to put a big tarp across the top as it is not heated up there and didn't want the heat to leave us downstairs...brrrr!!!
so hopefully the electrician will come out so that we can have an inspection done and then insulate soon!!!!!!!!
very fun!

I"m nesting....

Not sure why, but the 4 large totes filled with junk that have been piled in our bedroom for the past 4 months, well, I went through them today and Cleaned up.... so nice...then cleaned out my pantry and while i'm at it... lets re-do the kids room (erin and ryan are sharing a room and have no closet right now so you can imagine how it looks!!!! Yikes!
even my craft area is tidy...
so hopefully tomorrow we'll have heat hooked back up, plumbing upstairs and be ready to put an initial staircase in... so excited....
then after the inspections we can insulate and get closer to rooms upthere!!!

on a scrapping note, I didn't get that Dt I wanted... really discouraging... esp. because I sent my best cards/projects to her and until I get them back , I won't be able to try and publish them!!!!! very sad today.... some days I just wanna scream...
I have to trust that there is something out there for me and I just need to be patient with it...
nothing ever comes easy to me so I expect this area of my life won't either...
Oh well,
kids are feeling better we went to the library, playground and mall (disney store) this weekend...
hope you are all well..

Heat will get hooked back up Monday... and the shower is up there... took advantage of lifting it up while everything was open...
then next week, the staircase... woo hoo... only another month!!!!!!!!!!

in scrapping news, the papers will debut at memory trends this weekend and in the guides, (well,) you make recognize a few of the layouts!!! :)
I'm waiting on news for an awesome stamp company...
I really hope I get this one... this is my roots and what i really have had so much publication luck with (cards stamping, etc) Please keep your fingers crossed for me!!!!!!!!!!

Here is a few things I made during a cyber crop.
