Primping for the 4th

Here's T's nail design for July.

Friday, July 4, 2014


I woke up early today (actually, I didnt sleep much--darn insomnia!)
and wanted to get some things done before the World Cup...
Or the rain...
Or before the tiredness of lack of sleep catches up...

I wanted to do some of my much needed to-do that involved 
tools and  wood.

And I remembered an old friend that I had bought once upon a time ago that 
I shoved in the shed until now.
(It's the one on the ground....ignore my rigged up miter saw table)

Now why did I not pull this machine out a long time ago?!

Oh my.... Look at those routed edges!!  :)
{SIGH!}. Its sooooooo preeeeetty!!!

The clouds are opening up and I finished staining right before the rain started...
Yup, that's Florida weather for ya!...

Can't wait to show you when it's done!

By the way,...the wood?...
They're recycled, of course!

By the way, did I tell you that I love comments?  ;)
Tells me that someone is reading!!  :)

Enjoying Summer

I've been having a wonderful time making the most of family time!  :)
It has been perfect beach weather and the water is pleasantly warm.

I've also started to build my closet 

and it is so nice to be back to tinkering with the tools!

I do have to give credit to ACB. For helping me.
(Okay, I lie....for doing most...all?....of the work!   ;P)'s starting to look so darn pretty in there....
functional too!

...I'm in the final stretch for the first section!
Hubby will surely be happy... 
I can finally put away some of my "stuff" that is all over the place!  ;)

What about you?  
What have you been up to?!

Wisconsin Kappa Kappa Gamma

There is absolutely no greater feeling for a vendor
than to have a customer that is happy.

There is also something to be said for having 
such a pleasant customer to work with.

It really makes all the hard work and extra care all worth it!  ;)

Her name is Alicia and she was in charge of getting the gifts 
for her sisters that were graduating.

I was pleasantly surprised at receiving an email from her.
And it really was wonderful to receive!
I was especially touched at the picture she sent.
(Photo credit to Kappa Kappa Gamma in Wisconsin)

It is so wonderful to see the pillows with their new owners!  ;)
Thank you Alicia!  
....and congratulations to the Kappa Kappa Gamma graduating seniors
up there in Wisconsin!

Last week's bulk order really put a big dent in my Etsy inventory!  ;)
So I've taken advantage of the long weekend to replenish.

Between the many tasks that I wanted to knock off on the chores list, 
it's nice to feel somewhat accomplished.
Chore list is still lengthy though.
But I also have to thank that stupendous pouring of rain yesterday
 that allowed me to sit in my favorite chair and just sew.

I just put them all up in my Etsy... So go check them out here!!

What about you, whatcha been doing this weekend?

Said hello to an old friend today...

Kids wanted to go biking and scooting...
And so I figured that I might as well get some exercise in too.
I didn't go very far and I didn't go for very long...
But it felt great to still be able to do a great run and keep up with the kids!  :)

What about you, did you connect with any friends today?
