Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday turned out being really busy days! Wednesday, David and I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a bigger tree for next year, along with some new ornaments. I also bought some home decor and supplies to start on my Valentine's Days cards.
Paper, ribbon, brads, and a new punch for Valentine's Day cards! I can't wait to mail them to all of my friends!
I hope to use these things to create a new focal wall in the house. I am really into keys right now!
I also finished a frame project. I wanted to try my hand at creating some vintage frames that had a look of patina. I like the way it turned out.
After returning home Wednesday night, David went upstairs and I stayed downstairs to work in my craft room on some orders. After hearing some strange noises, I decided to venture upstairs to see what was going on!
I saw this....
and couldn't believe this....
and then this...
My whole living room had been transformed- sconces taken off walls, decorative items knocked out of the built-ins, wires and cords everywhere... and David nowhere to be seen (that is until I noticed the t.v. missing from above the fireplace!)
When your man is hanging out in the t.v. cubby with a caving headlamp on, something is definitely up! At least at my house anyway. The headlamp means BUSINESS!
He explained that he was running some wires for the t.v. and hooking up some new equipment. He reassured me the mess would be cleaned up soon.
Bichon found safe haven in her bed amidst the drilling and banging.
As promised, he picked up, rehung, and things looked as good as new the next morning!
My friend Brandy came over Thursday night for dinner at 5:00 and stayed until 10:30 p.m. We chatted it up! We are both looking into some digital scrapbooking techniques, so it was fun to swap ideas and thoughts on the subject. During that time, Rachel came over to spend the night. We spent a good portion of the night working on Valentine's Day cards. With school back in session on Monday, I wanted to get a jump start!
I am modeling my new punch! They are really great if you need to make a quick gift tag!
Rachel and I also organized the storage room downstairs, where I house my sesonal goods. Thank goodness we built this area when we built our house- it has been a major plus!
Friday morning, I had the pleasure of meeting a new friend, Ashley, who came by to pick up her tile order. She was so sweet and it was neat getting to meet a "blogger" friend face to face! She and her husband are actually considering buying a house in our subdivision! Fun! We could be neighbors. Friday afternoon, my friend Amy came by to visit, and Friday night, our nieces, Chyann and Madison spent the night. We took our two nieces and Rachel to Taco Bell for dinner (kid friendly), and rented Return To Oz- a great 80's movie I loved as a little girl!

David watching the movie with the girls- he is wearing his new Razorback pajamas.
The girls favorite part of spending the night is playing with tupperware cups and bowls in the bubbles.
