taking a breather for a moment...

and i thought i would give an update....
As you all have read it has been so busy around here. not all bad things just busy! One of my highlights this week is that we got a new couch and chair for the front room this week! Of course it took two hours to prepare...it wasn't just as simple as them brining it in...First we (the builder guys and I) had to clean out the garage so we could move the old furniture in there. That took about an hour..and then they moved the couch and chair..leaving me with the task of cleaning under the old one in preparation for the new. We also got a new table for the kitchen at the same time. A smaller and more rounded one so it is easier to navigate around it to get to the back of the house~ Yesterday Art and i decided the kitchen would look more coordinated if we painted the brown wood on the corner bench that Ashton had made us....we decided on black..Art did that yesterday~ Now I am looking for fabric fo brown and red accent pillows...no luck so far.


Ashton is making out like a bandit with new furniture..dining table...with 4 feet of leaves, a brown couch and chair...only 3 years old...out door furniture that i have had in storage...and anything else i can pan off on the kid!!..lol~

Another thing that I am excited about is this handy dandy contraption...an airconditioning unit for my studio...no more roasted artwork..yay!..of course that took up another afternoon...moving stuff out of the way and having heating and cooling dudes in my studio *eye roll*

Friday Ken came back to work on Art's theater stuff and then we drank margarittas...having company is nice but boy i just don't get much done...Earlier that day i had taken the kids...ALL FOUR of them to Target to get all the school shopping done~ Now we need to win the lottery to pay for all this stuff...rofl! The boys were of course the boys..numerous losses in the clothing racks, shopping cart races down the aisles, yelling to stop at least 1000 times....you know the normal stuff~ Friday night the turkies gave me a huge scare..they had been playing with the left over burn pile..throwing sticks in and some random newspapers they found...no biggie, but when Art yelled that they had the gas can out there..i about had a coronary right there on the spot...i had nightmares the last two nights...phew! those boys! Oh and then Ashton comes over sporting bruises and scrapes on half of his body...he had hit a car on his 24 hour old bike...with no helmet...man do these boys want to kill me?....parenting is definitely not for wimps I am telling you! Nothing terribly funny this week...just busy busy...

one more thing before I go back to my artwork.....YES!! I am actually doing artwork finally~...check this purse out:



would you like to own this purse?...well just for fun i would like to see how many people actually read my blog....all of it!!! So, I am giving it away!....If you would like a chance to win it, leave a comment here...if for some reason comments don't work for you shoot me an email and put 'purse' in the subject line and next Sunday i will draw a winner. This purse was made with papers from our first line at Dream Street Papers..Natalie's blue stuff-Ruff and Tumble and my Carrinna Rose with a bit of Basic Grey papers and vintage printouts!..it is a lot of fun and cute..I just have toooo much stuff up here and need to start doing something with it..yeah i could sell it...but that isn't as much fun as doing a give away!!!

any one that reads my blog is qualified to enter...yes dad that means you too...I promise the drawing will be fair..i will have Jonathon pull it out of a hat!

ps..my email is geminiangelart13@yahoo.com

Love what you've done with your house. I came really close to furniture shopping this weekend. I'm resisting 'til I have my house to myself again. What's the point of a new sofa for someone to sleep on and mess up. Anyway, love the purse! So consider me entered!

Hugs,
Darya
