Yup..that's me!
While the fix-ups continue in the house, my patience is starting to wane.

So today, for fun (ha!), I did this page, on the floor, with bare essentials...
Totally not my usual style, but kinda freeing to just "go with it"...

And I felt a whole lot better, as in "less stressed", afterward...:)

This is Rea, at 10 months.
We took this pic at *Sun City*, one of the best places one earth!

Happy Thursday everyone :)

Moved In

We finally moved into our new home and it's been a bit crazy trying to settle in, unpack and tend to the sickies.

As with a lot of new houses, we are discovering a few problems that need our Spa-shower in the ensuite, which was apparantly installed upside down without an installation guide...and this by a plumber who admits to have never installed one like it before...
Pardon the shabby was a bit wonky and I couldn't find my lenses...

So now all that tile has to be has to be re-done, drywallers come back and re-tiling begins.
In the meantime, someone scratched the tempered glass with a tool...Grrrrr!!!

The rest is starting to feel like home though :)

(need to find a bufet and nicely framed mirror to fit into that recess)

...super happy with the way the kitchen turned out :)

...and loving that the kitchen looks out at the lake (which you can't see due to crappy lense action)

Oh, my Guest Design Spot at Mark's Paper Company is on this month.
Loved working with their stuff and got everything in just before we moved...whew!

Check out my bio and projects *here*

Presently, I'm unpacking the office and scrappy room, which is always a load of fun :):):)
We're thinking of getting rid of the queen sized bed in the guest room, replacing it with a pull-out couch, and using it as a combined office/scrappy room for Oshean and I...I'm liking the a pull-out kinda ensures the guests don't stay too long, eh?

Happy week everyone!!!
