On a whim, I decided this year to enter Minted's contest for designing a Christmas/Holiday card. I just started learning Adobe Illustrator a couple of weeks ago, so these are not fancy, but I figured it didn't hurt to try. :) If you like these, you can click on the link below each card and vote for my design. There are some AMAZING prizes for several winners, along with a percentage of sales this holiday season for every card purchased in winning designs.
It's been forever, but I'm dropping in to say hey, friends...and to tell you I've added a couple new prints to my Etsy shop. Every print is only $5.00 and instantly downloadable for you to print at home, or at a printing shop.
This one would be perfect for a graduate....
I think this would be cute in a kids' room or a nursery.
We are slowly but surely getting our laundry room the way we want it. We started working on it almost a year ago…yikes! I shared all about it in this post here. We ran into a problem when Hubby realized he couldn't get over to that part of the house underneath the house in order to move plumbing around. We were planning to have another crawl space cut into this side of the house, but he finally just decided to cut a hole in the floor. And oh the joys of renovating….we've had a few minor setbacks. :)
But now, the old water heater is gone, the new one is in a different spot in the room, plumbing is in place and it's all good. This last couple of weeks, Hubby spent more than a few hours cutting an additional hole in the floor for access later, putting in new electric plugs, hanging sheetrock and texturing some of the walls.
This room is still a nightmare, but I promise this is progress!! The old water heater was in a closet where the vacuum and laundry basket is in this picture.
There's the new water heater…there will be a closet around it and the washer and dryer will be next to it where those two outlets are.
It looks like a dump, but I do actually do laundry in here!
And because this post needs some inspiration, here's what we are working on to use as a utility sink in the new space. It's sitting in my dining room right now….from the looks of things, it may be there a while.
And there you have the first-in-a-long-time house update!
I know part of the country is still covered in snow, but where I'm at, the last week or so has been very warm and the trees are blooming. It kinda puts me in the mood to take a trip somewhere. So why not let this Blue Monday be all about "blue" modes of travel?
I can just see myself with a straw hat, tee, and a twirly skirt riding through the countryside on this bicycle. OR not. But it's a pretty thought, right? And a pretty bicycle. :)
Or how about an adventure in Venice, Italy in one of these blue boats? Having been there myself, I can say that it really is as beautiful there as the picture!
