All projects on hold until further notice

Just a quick update on my move into my new room. It is on hold....
On a whim I booked a flight to go to Florida and spend a week with my sisters while they were visiting my father. I had a fabulous time with them. We laughed together all week long. But while I was away there was an accident in my house. The bathroom on my third floor flooded, and with no one being home all day the water was extensive. Water travels down and it leaked through the floor into my daughters bedroom all day. When my husband arrived home her bedroom was in ruins. Her bed, mattress, box spring, bedding and everything underneath the bed had to be thrown away, including the umpteen $$$$$ rug that was under her bed! But that's not the end of it. The water then traveled from her bedroom down and damaged my kitchen ceiling. So, I am under construction right now, repairing walls, floors and ceilings. This is what I was greeted with when I arrived home! ugghhh, that will teach me to go away for a week and enjoy myself! The repairs are coming along fine, but before I move my craft room from my dungeon I really have to get my daughter back into her bedroom. she has taken over my guest room and I am not happy with her cleaning habits in that room. So please stick with me. When I come back I will be back with a vengence!

Betty Bombshell

Do you love huh? I think that she is just sublime! I made this for my niece who just turned 20 and is so depressed because she thinks that she is now officially old. I told her to just wait until she starts pushing 50! If I had an image of Peter Pan I would have used that! lol
Click on the image for a closer look. I spritzed some gold glimmer mist on a sponge and sponged where the sand should be. Looks gorgeous irl!

Could you work like this? I ask you!? I just can't do it anymore. I used to love going into my
dungeon and stamping. But I am just not enjoying the process anymore. My room is out of control! By looking at this mess you would never believe that I am usually a neat and organized person. I just have too much stuff! Between the sewing projects and the stamping I am just out of room in my little dungeon area. So I will be moving my stamp room into another room that will be just for my stamping stuff. It's going to take me awhile to do it. Right now I am in the basement and I will be moving my things into a study room that we have on the 3rd floor. It's a great room with wonderful natural light. It will really be a beautiful area for me to stamp in. I really can't wait to move everything into the study. I will be so happy there. The one draw back is that i have to clear out that room before I make the move. This is going to take me a long time! You'll be seeing less of me while I am making changes. But once I am moved I will be back with a vengence!
April is a crazy month for me with birthdays, and anniversarys so I will be making a few things here and there. I'll post as I make them.
thanks to all of you who continue to visit me and see what I am up too. I really appreciate you!
