Well hi there! It has been awhile. *apologetic smile*
I don't recall summer ever being this busy :P This month has toned down on all the hustle and bustle but I still feel like it's going too fast :P Ya with me?
So between work and get-togethers I have been able to fit in quite a few projects these past two months! OH FRABJUS DAY! I know, right? I have even remembered to (wait for it...) take before AND after pictures of some of the projects I've completed. I'm usually terrible at doing that, guys! *pats self on back*
Onto the pictures!
Three Sundays ago, Robert and I unintentionally started a tradition. A WAFFLE tradition! Who knows if it will stick, but we've had waffles for three Sundays in a row now and who are we to stop it? ;) I shall proceed to make you hungry with these next couple of pictures:
|My waffles topped with strawberries, blueberries, and honey. Is your mouth watering yet?|
|Robert's waffles topped with apricot jam, honey, and peanut butter.|
|We went to the library and came out with more than we'd planned :D I tried to stay away, really! But, but, just look and that scrumptious stack!|
|This is the dress I got myself in celebration of getting my license! It reminded me of rainbows. I like rainbows.|
|I also got these! Russian nesting doll key covers and a tea strainer! *squeals* I collect Russian nesting dolls, so obviously I'm in love with these.|
|Isn't she cute?!?! She just floats in your tea cup looking super adorable.|
|This is the Sacred Heart of Jesus driving cross that Mom gave me :) And the pretty heart earrings that go perfectly with a necklace Robert made me a while back.|
|Voila! Robert cut the matting down to size, glued the puzzle together and onto the matting since we opted not to buy glass for it. I love it and it is now quite happily hanging in the dining room :)|
|Nerdy cups! Over the past year I've developed this nice collection. My family enjoys choosing who they are going to be every time they come over :)|
|I also found all of this on the same Goodwill trip! Some of the shirts might get refashioned for my future little girls. Goodwill is awesome.|
|This is my latest project. This is a desk that my sister was getting rid of and I claimed it as my own. It definitely needed some character added to it though, so I decided to give it a nice coat of paint.|
|I know the paint looks white in this picture but try to believe that it is really a very light blue. I just put some clear coat on it tonight so hopefully it is totally done!! It will be going into my craft room once it's dry :)|
*sigh* I feel so accomplished :) I need to keep being creative 'cuz I seem to thrive when I'm working on a project!
How has your summer been so far?
Love you guys!
P.S. I have read 47 books this year!!!!!!!!! How many have you read? I wish I could be as dedicated a reader as somebody else I know..... *looks meaningfully at Cait* :D Someday, I tell you! SOMEDAY.
