Feb 29th

I need another leap day. If I had one more I could possibly get caught up. Since Christmas, I have been working on the house and creating a bunch of fun projects that weren't totally necessary, but I'm glad they're done. Really what I've been doing is procrastinating. I need to tackle the basement/studio clean out. Well, this weekend it WILL happen. Lots of show applications are due, and I have a few recycled projects in the works. The picture above is for a SCRAP fund raiser. And the one below is for a mosaic I am working on for our new gate. I've been making these little houses for a long time now, and they have never been big sellers. So I decided to retire them and re-use the ones I have. I'll post more pics when it is finished.
Here's another picture just for fun. I have to say, I don't think I've ever heard as much laughing in this house as I've heard the past few weeks with this little one around. The boys are head over heels in love with her.

So last went by in a flash of puppy love and illness. This is what my view was for most of the week.

The boys adore her, but boy did I forget how much work a new puppy is. I did manage to get in a few trips to the thrift store.
Nothing makes me happier than finding a bunch of marbles at the bins. Finding a nice big bowl to put them in is pretty great too.
This last picture is a sneak peek for Suki. A custom order that should be finished up and sent out this week. I love custom orders. It's so fun to see someone else's ideas come together.

After a very long week, the floor, and the bathroom for that matter, are finished. I think I got all the remodeling bugs out of my system in this project. The main reason for the remodel was the washer/dryer in this picture. We had to move the sink to fit the machine. Moving the sink meant re-doing the sink and floor........ so here we are a couple weeks later with a beautiful new bathroom, and laundary room. All done on a super tight budget. I can't say enough good things about the seconds room at Pratt and Larson. Definitely one of my new favorite places. Having a laundary room upstairs means no more washer and dryer in my basement, which means more room for me to spread out and work. After a month of getting organized, working on the house, and taking an unplanned break from my glass. I am feeling re-newed and ready to get back to it. Gardening, and craft fair season are coming soon.
