  1. What are you up to today? This week?

    18th birthday party, check, graduation, Check, MIL back home in Texas, check! I am exhausted, and have done nothing but sit on the sofa this weekend. I'm trying to get enough energy to go down to the craft room and pick the next project. I got a few things at the Miniature Designs mini yard sale a few weeks ago that I'm dying to start on. I can tell you one thing though, no cakes. 3 cakes in one week is a lot of cake! Next one is in 2 weeks, gives me a little time to recover. I got a new position at work a few weeks back (yay!!). Unfortunately, I haven't been replaced for my previous position, so I'm doing both jobs (boo!). I was told Friday they hope to have someone in place June 1, but we'll see. They have to take an existing technician and re-assign their duties, and no one wants to do it. One person has already turned it down. But we are about to start a huge project/initiative, and whether or not it goes smooth or rough is a good part on my shoulders. No pressure!!

    Very pretty! I love the color. And that room is gorgeous!! You now have enough posts to start an album. Having an album allow all the pictures to be in one place, plus there are no space limits. Placing pictures directly in a post will fill up your quota. It is possible to link to an album picture from a post. Can't wait to see more of the house! What a great find.
  3. What are you up to today? This week?

    My MIL arrived at our house today for a 6 day stay. Everybody think happy thoughts for me please, this is going to be a rough week. On top of that we also have the youngest kid's 18th birthday and graduation this week. We decided today that we would have his party Wednesday instead of this coming weekend, so that shortens my cake-making time. I really should start on that tonight, but since I made one for Mother's day, I really can't bring myself to start that yet.  Happy Mother's Day everyone!!

    What a great idea! I love those. My daughter and grandson live over 3 hours away, and she needed a babysitter for Friday night (they both work at the family Mexican restaurant, and she had to manger for Cinco de Mayo, bless her heart!). So I went down Friday to baby sit, and me and Jude went shopping. We had a good time, and got some wood stuff for him to paint for his mom and my mom. Painting with a 2 year old is always fun. Left early Saturday to make it home and pass the car off to my husband who had to pick his mom up at the airport. My youngest had a play at 5 ( last high school activity for us! ) and they made it in time, with about 15 minutes to spare. Me and Brennen were the last ones who were working on striking the set to leave, so we made it home about 8pm. Long busy day! Today was easier, husband took his mom to her brother's, boys went to the movies, and I stayed home and made frosting and took a nap. We're under the two week count down to Brennen's graduation, and Mother's day and Brennen's 18th birthday falls in there too. So a lot going on the next two weeks. Fun! :)
  7. How do I Ship My House Across Country

    Good luck! After having completed this very same house last week, and then having to transport it just a few miles, the thought of taking this to pack and then shipping makes me cringe!
  8. Is the beacon hill sturdy?

    I have a cat and a Beacon Hill, and she can't knock it over. It is not flimsy at all. And once you start getting it decorated and such, it can get some weight to it. Nothing like the RGT mdf monster I just finished, but you can't pick it up with one hand or anything. The wood is not rough. The edges will need some sanding where it is punched from the sheets. I have a handheld power sander that zips through that in no time. And all the pieces are the same thickness, no matter the size. It is a beautiful house.
  9. What's everyone working on?

    Got the craft room.back cleaned up yesterday after getting the farmhouse finished Thursday. Major mini-ing will be on hold for about the next 3 weeks as MIL is coming in town Saturday for a 2 week visit. I did make it to the last day of the mini garage sale at Miniature Designs today, got some 1/4 furniture kits, and also a few HOM kits, and a 1/144 house kit, and a 1/4 room of kit. Fun!!
  10. What are you up to today? This week?

    Have a safe trip Kathie! Did you happen to make it by the Miniature Designs yard sale? I'm going to try and make it tomorrow, today was a busy day of car repairs so I was unable to make it.
  11. What's everyone working on?

    Thanks! And I sure will! I just dropped it off, and they were all so excited. She said she would let me know how it goes!
  12. What's everyone working on?

    Sable I love the stone foundation!
  13. What's everyone working on?

    Got the house done for the auction, and it is loaded in the car for delivery later this morning. All in all I'm pretty pleased, although there are a couple things I would redo differently if I had the chance. But it should be fine. So cross your fingers it does well! I'll work on getting pictures up this weekend.

    It's the RGT Victoria's Farmhouse. That is a great deal for those!
  15. What's everyone working on?

    Oh Holly... This house has been such a pain! Only a couple rooms have been talkative. And this last room is so so big, it takes more than the "standard" amount of wallpaper and floor. Since it's the attic, I figure it is appropriate to use "reclaimed wood" and I will use all the scraps from the other floors, so there will be two complimentary colors of wood. I have some plain beige paper that will balance the other room in the attic nicely, and I have enough. And the measurements seem to be working out serendipitously so that's nice. I will at least do the sloped parts with that, and then take a look to see if that is too blah for the whole room. I would like to maybe add a little oomph to the walls, but we'll see what happens!
