A Quickie Update and Future Blog Candy!
Hi Blog Buddies! Before I get too deep into this post, I want to say HI and WELCOME to all of our new followers, and give a HUGE thank you to all of you! Your response to the blog hop last weekend and your sweet comments made me feel so special! I want you to know that when things settle down a little (see below) I plan on visiting each and every one of your blogs. That's been the plan all along, but life got in the way just a little!
I wanted to let you in on a couple of things. This Tuesday will be hubby's hernia surgery, (positive thoughts, prayers, light, good vibes, or whatever works for you, are all welcome for him on that day) so we've been trying like crazy to get some things done around here before he's out of commission for a while. As you guys may have seen in my last post, the paper shelves in the craft room are up (!!!!!!!) and they have now been painted and filled. THEY ARE AWESOME! (There's a little sneak peek above!) Our sweet, amazing, wonderful neighbor also moved everything back upstairs into the craft room, moved all of the old craft furniture into the garage, and got hubby's man cave back into order (even better than before) so that it will be ready for our daughter to sleep in while she's here helping with hubby after his surgery. Hubby can't lift more that 20 pounds for now, so Mr. Awesome Neighbor moved all the heavy stuff (which was pretty much everything) by himself! He was here for almost two solid days helping us get everything put back together. You rarely see people as kind and giving and generous as he is. I need to bake him a cake...or a whole fleet of cakes...or something with BACON!
So, the fun part of that long paragraph is that the craft room is almost put back together! WOOT! Everything is moved back in, and starting to find a home. There will be shallow shelves for embellishments and ribbon built on top of the paper shelves soon, but for now all the embellishment jars are just sitting on top of the shelves. Oh and I can't even begin to tell you how nice all that desk space is! As soon as everything is put away (today or tomorrow maybe) I'm going lock myself in the room and have a big craft fest in there! (that almost sounded naughty!)
As I'm going through all my crafty stuff, I'm finding things that I really don't use and/or things that would make some awesome blog candy! So, once hubby's back to perfect and things have settled down here a little, I plan on putting it all in a pile, taking some enticing pics, and having a fun blog candy giveaway for our little blog buddy community we've built here!!
