I couldn't wait.....

anymore. The living room isn't completley together yet, but i just HAD to make something. So, this is my first LO since June.

These are all my Grandparents. They have all passed away now, but I regret, among other things, that they never met any of my children before they went. I also made it for Colour Combo #157 and Pencil Lines Sketch #200.

Now, I've got to get back to getting the house together! Have a good one!

IT'S DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The living room is FINALLY finished!!!!!!!! The last coat of paint went on this afternoon, so the rest of the weekend will be spent cleaning up the room, hanging lights and putting the living room together. SO excited to sit in there again - it's been 8 -- yep that's right -- EIGHT weeks since we've been able to use that room properly.

Pictures to come soon - have a great night!

bought myself one of these :

I have been coveting it for about three years now; and I get to bring it home on Wednesday. Happy, happy, joy, joy!! Happy Birthday to me!!

But, it comes with sad news as well. My LSS is closing its doors at the end of the month. But out of every good thing at the store, I'm going to miss the staff most of all. April, the owner, has become a friend and she also gave me my first "DT" shot by asking me to design some layouts for her when she first opened her store. But, I'll be looking forward to continuing to be a part of her Crop for Cancer events that she's still planning on hosting.

We're getting the drywall mudded!!! Can't wait for this part to be over though, it's messy! After mudding, it's paint and then I can put my room back together again.

This week we're heading over to Toronto for a couple of days. My hubby has a work conference, so the kids and I are going along. We have plans to go to the Science Centre and Centreville - can't wait for those!!

Just a few weeks of summer vacation left & then it's back to work. Fingers crossed for a better year!!

Have a great night!

Talking to my hubby again.....

and he's working on speeding up the reno. Hopefully we'll have the house back before September and I can get the cleaning up at least started before we go back to school. At the very least, I NEED my scrappy space set up; I'm chomping at the bit to get creating again!! =D

I got my bus route today & thankfully, it's changed enough that the students that caused me so much stress last year are no longer on! Yippee!! Now, we'll see how the new kids work out, but hopefully, it'll be a better year.

Spending tomorrow getting ready for a weekend of camping - just the 5 of us! Looking forward to some family time away from everyone and everything.

Have a great weekend!!
