Kitchen Remodel Continued ~

I missed posting the pictures of last weeks kitchen remodel project. I didn't think everyone would want to see my cupboards without the doors on them. The doors have been spread out on the counter and the table getting their face lift. And, now some of them are back up. Yeah!! No more messy cupboards to look at. Here is a peek at what it looks like now. This weekend we will get knobs for the doors. We have been looking at fancy new range hoods so the big blank spot will get filled in soon. Then the next step is the countertop.

In case you were wondering, yes, we are having a party at my house on the 10th of April. It will be a celebrate the end of the semester at BYU-I, family Fajita Party. Two of my kids are there and five nieces and nephews. One of the girls will be graduating and my sister's family will be here too. Should be lots of fun! I wish the rest of you could join us.

New Stamp Samples ~

It's been quite a while since I took a couple of hours in the middle of the day and just made Stampin' Up! samples. But, tonight I have a workshop and wanted to show some of the fun new things from the catalog. The box at the bottom is an original. I will try and get a tutorial up later. For a begineer Paper Engineer it turned out quite nice. I will be teaching some of these projects at Hostess Club meetings in the next few months. So if you want to get in on the fun let me know.

I found a great explination of the fun new fabric cuts that you see at quilt stores now. On her blog Simplify , Camille shows and tells all about them. She even has a give away going on. So stop in and join the fun. Just don't get sidetracked and spend your morning looking at all of the Moda fabrics.

I'm back ~

Sorry if you've been by checking for exciting news from SE Idaho. I took a break and went to Arizona to visit my parents. It was warm! Well, almost everything is warm compared to here, but it felt so good. It was great to have time to sit out on the patio and read and see so many new things. I really enjoyed the break from the everyday routine at home, but you know, it sure feels good to be back. I took a minute in my craft room this morning and made a cute card.
