See, it worked pretty good!And while I was waiting for the glue to dry, I painted the baseboards for the daughter's room with 2 coats of paint. And once those dried I glued them into place! Then the bf cut out the crown molding for me. I find it funny how he props up his molding with another piece of molding, LOL: that's the carpenter in him coming out!!Me, I use painter's tape.....Well.....like I said, I got a lot of a little done or is that suppose to read a little of a lot??? Oh well, you understand........I hope:)
Hope everyone has a yummy Thanksgiving! Until next time...

Well, now I must go beg the carpenter to install this door, maybe I should try bribing him with cookies or something?!
Oh and did you notice that I changed the background?? Whatcha think?? Not too hard on the eyes is it?? I found the link in the upper left hand corner of Debbie's page.....Thanks Debbie! You can find the same link in the upper left hand corner of my page........they have over 300 different backgrounds!! And it's very east to do! Have fun decorating!

OK...now that that is out of the way....Let's talk crafts! These next 3 pictures are of Mom's craft room. Oh...and while I was taking them...she was fussing at me about, I could of least let her clean first, lol....I told her not to worry, that you guys have seen mine, and it is 10 times worse than hers.....and Hers isn't really that bad.....Heck, she's a lot more organized than me! I mean, come on....she even has room for an upright freezer! I could do a dance in the middle of the floor...and I tell ya, it makes me want to dance when I'm in there! She's got lots of good stuff! The whole wall to the right is Rubber stamps and ink!And her craft room even has a closet...and a walk in closet at that!! We won't tell anyone how much material she has stashed in here! I also got to visit with my sisters while I was home. I haven't seen my youngest sister, Joyce since Thanksgiving~last year, I wish we coulda had more time to talk, I miss her! And my other sister, Jess recently went to Dubai and Egypt, and I asked her to keep her eyes open for anything miniature. OH, I'm so excited, are you ready for this?!?! These are awesome!! First we have a small gold camel, with lots of little gems! His back even lifts up to reveal a hidden compartment!And a camel carpet! Isn't it beautiful!!! I just can't tell you how amazing these are! One day they will go to live in my bf's mini Man Room! (when it gets built that is!)
Ok, well I'm off to unwind from the weekend. First, I think I will 'stalk' a few sites to see what's new! Until next time.......

OK, so last night I decided to pull out the clay and try and replicate the colors I saw in a bracelet...Check it out on Tina T's blog, http://tinat.wordpress.com/2008/10/25/i-got-those-fall-inspired-beads-finished-0/....Go ahead, I'll wait.......you See? I love her fall colors!! So I decided to try and use up some more of those scraps I have, I have lots of pearl colors. I wasn't too impressed with what I ended up with from the get go. They're not as dark as I woulda liked for them to be. Too much orange and yellow....I needed more red!! Either way, I made a mokume gane cane, and went to town. One thing I taught myself a long time ago about clay is Not to give up! Sometimes, half way through a project, it really looks horrible, but it normally comes out ok.....See, I really don't like these colors, but someone else may. (I apologize for the flash blurring the bottom center one!!)I took the left over clay and made these:
Ok, I'm going back to snuggle up on the couch and watch a movie....lets see what else I can get into!

Then I moved onto the store......I put everything back where it was, and even added a few extras. On the bottom shelf, I put out the stone pavers, in 3 different sizes! I put bricks in the silver bucket in the front, thought it looked nicer than trying to stack them on a shelf. Here's a picture of Katie's Corner. I still have room to add lots of treasures! That empty shelf in the back may get some jars of seeds....maybe some lavender, or sage, or even some catnip or something?!?!
I've managed to spend the whole weekend..thinking! Scary huh! Yesterday I brought out those 2 red chairs I need to refinish and managed to stare at them all evening! Horrible! Sometimes you just sit and look at something till it comes to ya, Well, it never did last next!!! I did get all the legs pulled of, and found some wood I can cut down to make for legs....but trying to figure out how to make a slip cover was mind boggling! I think I'll save them for when I go home for the holidays and see if Mom will help me sew something for them. I also plan on begging her to do the curtains for Cora's house! I better make a list huh.........Hahahaha:) I love you Mom:)!!

Last night we were sitting on the couch, watching TV, when Hurricane Pocus comes from out of no where, leaps across the back of the couch, and ends up in the top floor of Katie's Corner. UGGG! You see, I've been hiding it under a pillowcase, hoping the cats would leave it alone. Well, so far they have.....
Any Ideas out there???

I figured I'd try and make some more toys for the nursery. First I made 3 more bears, their color is reversed from yesterdays bears. And 2 of them have tongues today! Then I made the 3 rocker stacks in the back. After cooking them, I thought they were to big, until I got them into the room, Now, I think they work great! Pretty good for my first try. See, it works, right?? Even looks good from a distance....

Then, I put a dresser in the parents room, and added a picture. The picture was taken where my kids go to summer camp; it will go on the wall eventually. Looks like my 2 bears have snuck in here to take a nap........The were getting all chewed up hanging out in the living room! Dang on Otis! In the kitchen I added the table and chairs behind the stairs. I more or less just wanted to see if they fit, and they do:) Before they become a permanent fixture, they need new seat pads! Then I came across all the little bears I made out of clay, and would you believe that I did NOT have one single green bear??? So, naturally I made 3!! And a horrible basket....lol....I put one bear on top of the dresser in the nursery....Then I donated my rocking chair from Katie's Corner so the second little critter had some where to sit.....I think the chair needs a small blanket and a book now....
There's alway something to do, isn't there?!?!
