Good morning!! Well, I’m back from the most fabulous little getaway with my sweet husband. We mixed business with pleasure this long weekend in WA state. I went to Joann’s for the first time…kind of like Michaels, found a big stash of candy corn at Dollar Tree (for props!) and bought some shoes and jeans at the Outlet Mall. Then once back in BC, we made a little detour to Ikea to pick up some shelves, bookcases and desk for the new studio :) Oh, and a million new wooden hangers for the walk in closet LOL!! But the best part was just being with Tony for more than 2 hours in a row. We needed a lot of hand holding and canoodling time and this trip was exactly what the doctor ordered. I also had yesterday off, so spent some time in the temporary studio to play along with this month’s new Muse over on the CASE Study Challenge Blog. I have admired Niki Estes work since her PTI days :) The first card we are CASEing was too sweet to pass up. I was inspired by the colours, butterfly, birthday sentiment and loosely by the sketch :) My card was getting a little too monotone for me, so I added those two yellow buttons for a bit more colour. Here’s Niki’s gorgeous card…
I’ll leave you with a few new house photos!! The kitchen started going in on Friday and should be finished this week. This makes Moe VERY happy!! LOL Definitely a ‘desire of my heart!’ I’m thinking the coffee bar will be to the right of the stove…what do you think? Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for visiting :)
the nice men putting our dream kitchen in :) It’s all I could do to stop jumping up and down like a giddy school girl!
