And there was light...

And it was good. My craft room now has more than 'mood lighting'. This makes me ridiculously happy.

The full effect can't be appreciated until this evening, but all the crafters out there can appreciate how wonderful it is to have good lighting in your workspace. I went with Philips 'natural light' bulbs.
Can't wait for club next month!

Molding. Slowly but surely..

I got a little motivated today. Trying to finish some of the many, many unfinished projects around here. There are a lot of things I don't know how to do, but I can do molding. 

Master bath:

Still not 'finished', but as much as I can do until we tile the bathtub.

Summer heat

Tom teaching Hailey a little about pool maintenance..

And a harsh reminder that the outside of the windows have to be cleaned also...

I knew they would get tired of the polka dots but I was a *little* surprised that it was only a matter of months. Hailey was the first to take the plunge starting with this wall:
Then the rest will be: gray. solid gray.

The fish and the fireplace

Sounds like an interesting tall tale, doesn't it? I'm sure Tom could spin a wonderful yarn about that over a couple glasses of whiskey but, alas, the truth is much less exciting. I hung Tom's fish over the fireplace. :-)

As much as I hate to admit it, it looks pretty good right there.

Craft room bath decor started

I picked up this cute little wall sconce at the Sorticulture event this year. And I found the pussywillow decals in a box in the shop. (Surprise, surprise...)
So Hailey and I went to craft mart and got some silk flowers and greenery. Now that it's all together, I'm not sure I like the flower color with the iris color. No, I definitely don't. :-(

Gone, baby, GONE!

After many issues and delays, the mobile is finally moved to its new home where it will be appreciated and completely overhauled.
That little robo-cat is pretty cool.

We were sad that we had to cut down a large flowering plum tree from in front of the shop to get the mobile out.
Making sure it doesn't bottom out at the end of the driveway. They did break off some plumbing pipes..
And now we will bring in some gravel and have ample parking for the house warming party!
