Warm and warmer.

The weather has been hot recently. I’m not complaining though because this is what summer is all about – sunshine, barbeques, and playing outdoors.

Speaking of “warm”, our house is the “warmest” that it has ever been since we moved into it. We are about 75-80%% done with all of the renovations. The under cabinet lighting is going to be put in this weekend. …and I’m so THRILLED that we finally purchased our dining table. Today, we picked up the chairs. Yes, we have been using our laps and the coffee table as table seating. 🙂 Oh, how I love tablescapes. I’m having so much fun with that.

By the end of this month, we should be completely done! THANK HEAVENS! All of the sweat and tears put into this home finally means something.

Anyway, I have been working on invitations to the housewarming party. Can you believe that my mother requested for this gathering?! I wasn’t too keen on having a party since I didn’t want to make a big deal out of the enormous changes that have happened within the past year, but she insisted. …so it gives me a reason to craft away. I’ve got some REALLY cute and simple invites in progress, which I plan to share with everyone once I finish all of them. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get them all done by next week.

Here is a project I have been working on this week:

I finished another mini album, which I will share real soon. I guess this week has been devoted to mini albums! 🙂

Oh, and today, I got to meet the owner of My Little Shoebox. She’s so incredibly sweet. I bought chipboard monograms from her at $.25 a box. What a steal, don’t you think?! Don’t worry, I was able to snag at least eight of them! I can’t wait to start working with them.

Randomness of the day – I found this really cute picture of Maui. It totally made my day.

This picture totally made my day.

This picture totally made my day.

Have a wonderful (and safe) weekend!

    Ahhh summer, lend a thought for me freezing my butt over here! We have had some harsh frosts but at least on those days you know you will get some sun :o) I’m very excited for you having your reno’s near completion; we have a fair way to go with ours, doing it very slowly, maybe too slowly lol!
