How are you all this week? Good, I hope!
We had another jam packed weekend with birthday parties and company picnic's to attend. Syd bought herself some Lego sets with the money she was hoarding from her birthday and had a lot of fun building with them. Hubby scraped, spackled, sanded and painted more of the living room. We didn't notice until after we moved in that one of the previous owners did a horrible job painting the walls. They left 2-ft long drip marks above all the windows and painted over unsanded spackle! We couldn't spend our hard earned money on paint only to leave the walls this way, so we've been repairing them as we go. So it's turning out to be a longer project than we anticipated but I remedied that yesterday. I invited our old apartment neighbor over for dinner Friday night! Nothing like a deadline to get things moving along! Haha! We just work better under the gun. ;) I also managed to finish off a project I should have started at the beginning of the summer. I'll share it with you all on Friday.
On top of all that, I made it back into my craft room again! Woohoo! Go me! :D
Since Hurricane Irene passed through these parts, the Maple trees on our property have dropped a lot of their leaves, so we've gone from mowing the lawn every weekend to blowing and racking the leaves every weekend! Yay....not. I keep telling myself it's all part of the charm of living in the New England area. Some days I believe it. Anyway, this is what inspired me to use the Autumn Mosaic set from There She Goes for this card.
I hope you're having a wonderful week!
