Lots of this….
And all of that….
After using leftovers to: build a kids playhouse, 3 large porch planters, a planter for the school auction, a wood interest wall, a range hood, a headboard, a porch rail, and 3 benches; we still had tons of leftover fence materials and cuts from when we milled our porch boards down. After two years
we, I mean *I* decided it all needed to go. We kept enough to make a couple more benches and planters for the yard.
I put it all up on Facebook offering it to anyone who wanted it. I had three people come by and load a good portion of it up for their misc projects. All of the lighting, sinks, and salvageable home items I am bringing to the Habitat for Humanity’s Restore. The junk metal, we recycled and alllllllll the misc paint cans will be brought to the City’s hazardous waste collection day next month.
Whew! A big day of work. The yard and shed are cleaned out! Now my OCD self can breathe and start planning some landscaping. :)
I was working on a St. Paddy’s Day Project Life page and decided to make a quick little card. I posted it here if anyone is interested in using it.
I received my October Cuppa kits from Studio Calico. Here are the layouts I made before I got distracted and started working on Christmas stuff. haha. I have a couple more I did, but they are not pictured here and I have already put them away. It was a lot of fun to play with this kit.
I have been saving this cute little fawn by the Pretty Little Studio and this Lawn Fawn birch paper for my December Daily. I finally contented my heart by putting it together today. I think it’s cute!
Sometimes I receive cards in my kits that I really don’t care for. This month I challenged myself to use two marble pattern cards from my SC that look like 70s wallpaper. Below is what i did with them.
I was also in the Christmas mood all of a sudden and made a few gift tags and bought my wrapping paper…sheesh…it’s only October!
Each month I lay out my Studio Calico monthly kit and match pictures to the papers, then I stack them up and work on them all month. Below are my ideas and then the actual layout. I usually get the main scrapbooking kit and a paper add-on for die cutting and layering. My new kit is coming to me in the mail, so I hurried and finished off last month. I don’t have much storage room, so I try to use my kit up each month before my new one gets here. Hope you enjoy!!
