Finishing is definitely harder than starting! We are ALMOST done with all the renovations that we've been doing around here......now it is mostly getting things put in place and back together.

Tonight we put together the last of the desks.....a computer desk in the family room for the kids to use for their schoolwork. In order of us to put the desk up, it had to be assembled, the piano and all the furniture needed moving, then the floors and baseboards needed cleaned under and behind where the furniture was, then we were ready to set up the desk. Whew!!! That is what we did this evening. I'll take a picture of that too once I clear away all the other junk that is piled up.

Here is what the room looks like right this very minute.....
Actually, the room looks better in the picture than it does in real life :-)

I have been working at putting all my stamps and supplies away......here is some of what I have done so far.....
I have organized all my paper into the boxes and labeled them. The large black boxes are perfect for 12x12 sheets and the smaller white and green boxes are just right for 8-1/2x11 sheets. I've broken them up by color family and also I sorted my big scrap bin into color families as well. I also used one of the black boxes for a neutrals scrap bin.
It's been soooo nice to be able to have the space to spread out.....I think it will be much easier to be (and STAY) organized!

With all this home makeover business.....I haven't had ANY time for personal stamping. I have been going to Karen's class each Monday and have gotten my "ink" fix. Below is a Halloween card that we made a couple of weeks ago. The background is made using a technique that uses wax paper that has been embossed using the Big Shot. I don't have time (or the brain energy) to post the instructions now....but if you're interested, leave me a comment and I'll get back to you.
Well....that's about all I can post tonight. Once all is done, I'll try and figure out how to do a virtual tour of some kind of all our changes.

Until next time,
