Hey Guys,  I know that I just updated you with all of my crafting that I have been doing, and I am going to post pictures of the albums that I made for my daughter Amanda, and her friends, well actually just 1 album, Amanda's album, cause I forgot to take pictures of the other ones.  I am so angry with myself, who forgets to take pictures of stuff that you have worked on for 2 months?? Anyway I will post the pics, but since I have not taken the pictures yet, I thought that I would show you the progress of our house.  I am sure that not everyone knows that we are remodeling the 1st floor of our home. We are putting hardwood floors throughout the 1st floor, with new doors, painting throughout, and a new bathroom.  I just love how it is coming out, and I would love to share.  I hope you like.                                                                  
These are basically the "before" pictures, we clearly have taken the furniture out, and the piece of wood on the floor inside the vinyl floor is where they ripped out a breakfast bar.

The hardwood that you see in these photos, is what came with the house, and they were unable to match them, so we had to rip them out.  When they pulled out the vinyl floor, we knew that there was 1 floor under the one that we put in, but apparently there were 4 other layers, and when they were done, the floor was 2-1/2" lower!  We put the Granite counter top in a few months ago, and the stainless steel appliances.

these pictures are after the floors were ripped up.

These are the most updated pictures.  I love the color of the new wood, it really feels homey!!  The walls were also painted a warm golden yellow called Honeymoon, (so cute)
 This is where we are now, we are actually at a point that we can move some furniture back in!! The stove is back in also, which means that I have to start cooking dinner again! :(  Oh well, I guess you have to take the good with the bad!  Anyway, I  hope you all like it, and I will post album pics soon! Thanks for looking, Karen♥

Graduation Card

Hi Guys!! I know, I know,  I know I have really been busy though! I know that is not really an excuse, but I really have been busy.  However, I know that you all would be happy with  what I have been busy with! My daughter Amanda just graduated from Springfield College, in Springfield, MA and I have been making scrap books for her and all of her room mates!! So what do you think now????? I also made this card
After I made my anniversary card
I had this leftover paper all set and cut to the right size, because I made the anniversary card 6 x 12 so I had the other half of the paper, so I was sending a box of study goodies up to my daughter and her roomies to munch on during finals!!  Anyway, the card is 6 x 6  and I used some stickers to go up the side, that say friends, future success and there are flowers in the corner, with washi tape running down the other side!  I will be back to post pics of the albums that I haven't  taken the pictures yet, but when I take them, I will post them!! I hope everyone is doing well, oh and I have some pictures of our renovations and how they are coming along!  TTYS Karen♥
