And so it begins...

Construction, or should I say demolition, on the basement begins tomorrow. YIKES.

For like 8 weeks I will not be able to lounge around in my pjs til noon, walk around half clothed, or take a nap.  I'm sure our schedules will be thrown off, but I must remind myself it is for the greater good! Thankfully the weather is supposed to be warming up, so I'm hoping we can get outside while they're are tearing things apart (I'm sure it will be loud).

So Joy shared a card she submitted for publication that did not get picked I will too.  It was my second go at the submitting to a publication call, and my second time not getting picked up. I was a little disappointed, but I will not give up!  It just means I have to craft more, and buy more stuff right??? (Kidding! Well sort of...)

For now we are off to make Valentine's for Daddy before he gets home from work. We have about an hour...why do I procrastinate?
