Sketch This 52

This week has been crazy fun! Things are humming away at the new house and it's the last week of school.

We are still in the trimming stages at the new house, but we are getting closer to painting and that means that the pressure has been put on me to start picking out paint colors. YIKES!!! I have a pretty good idea of what we're doing, but the kids rooms were baffling me. All of them are due for new bedding, so I've been shopping around for that. I only have one more to do and then I can pick all the paint colors to go with what I found. YAY! It feels so good to get that "checked off".

Today was "clean out your desk day" at school. Jensyn brought me home some lovely new artwork to hang in my office. She says she painted them just for me. Awwww! :) LOVE THAT!
And check out her end-of-year paper mache project! She's so funny! They were supposed to create an animal from Utah. She started out making a deer, but then it evolved into a deer/cat/dog/horse/unicorn. LOL! Her teacher says that Jensyn is only the 2nd student in all her years that she has allowed to create a mystical creature for the Utah Animal project! LOL! :D :D :D Gotta love the "artistic" gene in the family!
And these are my latest FAVORITE scrapbooking supplies! I got them just today from my sweet son, Owen. He used his good-behavior-in-class money to buy them for me from the class stash of goodies. Awwwww! Seriously! How sweet is that! Thanks, Owen! I LOVE them! ;)
