Catch Up Post

The house is coming along SO GREAT! I thought I would share a few photos with you, just 'cause I'm so dang excited at seeing it all start to come together!

These pictures were taken last Friday while they were sheetrocking. It's a little messy, but you get the idea.

This is a photo looking up towards the 2nd floor from our entry way. The door to my Scrap Room is on the left. LOVE how much sunlight streams into that room! It will be so great for scrapping!

This picture looks from the Great Room into the Kitchen and Nook. Love the size of this area! I think it will be great for entertaining.
This is on the 2nd story looking towards my Scrap Room door.
Okay! This is my Scrap Room! Since I shared computer-generated photos of it with you awhile back, I thought you might like to see it starting to take shape in real life! WOOHOO! This photo was taken standing in the Stamp Area looking back towards the desk and bonus room areas.
And here is a view of it looking back the opposite way . . . from the Bonus Room area looking back towards the sink area. :) :) :) It makes me so happy to see my space coming together! Is it totally bad that this is the room I'm the most excited about?! LOL!
And then one more thing . . . here is a couple of photos of our front door being constructed in the woodshop. We totally copied a door off another home, but I LOVE IT! It should be installed this Friday.

Alright, . . . Thanks for letting me share! I just thought you might like to see what is occupying so much of my time lately. :)
Awhile back my sweet friend and fellow DT member at BackPorch Memories, Tami Floyd Tami Floyd, tagged me. Be sure and check out her blog. I LOVE her style! Every page she does is just bursting with great design! I could honestly scraplift every single thing she does. LOVE HER WORK! ;)
So here are 7 More Random Things about me.
1) You know those little foil lids on yogurt, honey mustard sauce, etc. I have a weird habit of having to lick those lids before throwing them away. *blush, blush*
2) I have a total weakness for cakes and cupcakes. I think it's the frosting factor. Yep! I'm the one that begs for the piece of cake with the huge flower on it. YUM! :)
3) I have bad feet. I'm only 32 years old and I have to wear old lady shoes (I usually go with Crocs or Tennies with my arch supports inside) because both of my feet have terrible heel spurs. I'm almost to the point of wanting to have surgery on both of them because they keep bothering me so bad. So if you see me limping around, that's why. I'm falling apart. :(
4) I can't stand shopping for clothes. Don't get me wrong, I love cute clothes, but I am so about jeans and layered t-shirts with a cute cut. If I find some I like, I buy them in every color instead of trying on different things.
5) I think I'm addicted to the internet. I shamelessly hit 15+ sites every day. It's a part of my
morning routine.
6) I'm terrible about washing my face and taking out my contacts before I go to bed. Maybe if I wouldn't stay up so late scrapping, I would be awake enough to care more about it instead of just melting into bed each night.
7) I enjoy smelling my clear acrylic stamps. :)
So there you have it! I think that was more like 7 confessions instead of 7 facts. LOL! Also, I hope you don't mind, but I'm going to skip tagging people again. I'm just too lazy and crazy busy to do it. Sorry. :(
Now to leave you with a little scrappiness. This is one more layout using the gorgeous Noel Mignon Apple Blossom Kit. And guess what . . . she only has 4 more left! Run! Don't walk! You NEED this kit! ;) Have a great night!
