I can't believe it's been since JUNE that I posted last!!! It's been an interesting summer (to say the least) and one with little to no real crafting.  I've been babysitting, working with my tutoring program and working to turn my outbuilding into a craft room of my very own.  Now that school is back in session, I'm subbing and doing the tutoring program thing, so I'm working from 7:30 am - 6 pm most days of the week and can't find the time to make stuff... :(   

Here are some of the things I HAVE managed this summer:

This is the Elfa shelving I bought for the craft room....SOOO in love with this storage system!! Expensive, but worth it. Since this was a display, I got it for 1/2 price! :)

A/C went into the building/craft room.....

Picked out my paint colors (Lime Sorbet and Lilac Bouquet)

We FINALLY got all the walls completed and the Rafters, Ceiling and Lights, OH MY!!!!!  Hahahahahahaha......

And here it is, all painted and ready for if only I could get the floors bought and in......oh, and I guess the moldings, too....

But wait. I saved the best pix for last:

This is me, all covered in paint! Well, primer. This was just after I finished the primer on the you can tell by the top picture, I even got the primer in my eye! It was stuck to my contacts! LOL

Well, I hope I have given you some laughs for today, but I will also leave you with a few crafts that I have managed to make this summer:

A card for a Christmas in July swap....the tree is a stamp that I cut out and mounted on an Action Wobble :)

This was a monthly card swap who's theme was "fruity". So, I made a waterfall card and stamped fruits on it.  I also used a new technique I learned to make the fruits "scratch n sniff".  All you do is combine Kool-Aid with clear embossing powder. Simple!

And this was for a Patriotic Tag is a shaker tag with glitter inside. :)

Well, that's all for now.  Be back soon, I hope!
