A New Look!

Thanks to the background fairy (and her step-by-step instructions), I have a new look on my blog. It matches so perfectly don't you think? I love it. Who knew it was so easy?

Steph and family have been working hard getting Grandpa Creed's house cleaned out and ready to sell. It helped me be motivated enough to start cleaning out. (I think I got rid of more than I took home from the garage sells this morning.)

My husband has a new rule, and it is a good one, "for everything that you bring in to the house, at least an equal number of things needs to leave." I'm sure I will remind him of this from time to time. After all, if the rule works for me, it should also work for him right? I do go on cleaning binges and always have a donation pile going in the garage. (It's about time to make a run too.)

Steph informs me that I still have waayyy too much stuff...especially in my sewing/studio space. Hey, I still have plans to use up all the stuff in there. If only I could find the time. I just was gifted an antique singer sewing machine. Can't wait to figure out how to thread it to see how well it works. It sure is heavy and supposedly is the best machine Singer made. I recovered the stool but have yet to paint the table. I guess I'll wait to see if it works before beautifying the cabinet.

Eli's back home after working in Canada and Michigan for the last two months. His girlfriend, Brenna, is getting back from France tonight. I hope my car is still in one piece, he borrowed it to pick her up at the airport.

I'd tell you more but without pictures it is so boring isn't it? Ok, here's a little more. Candice and family are off to Texas this week. NYC is a cool place to live. The Stringhams are really going to miss it. (I'll miss visiting them there too.)

Marissa and family are coming next week for a visit. I can't wait to get my hands on more grandbabies. We've been having lots of fun with baby Creed since Steph has been doing so much to help at Grandpa Creed's house.

I went to the bead show in SL. I spent the whole day there with Brett's mom. She bought lots of beads to get ready for Swiss Days in August. She will have a jewelry booth there. Of course, I went looking for sterling silver earrings for me and ended up finding a few more things I couldn't resist. Now, I have more projects to work on in my studio space. Steph is going to love me even more. :)

I hope you all had a fun weekend.

LOVE the new look Kim! It sounds like you're still busy, busy, busy! I need to have a big clean out too -- it's just so overwhelming!
