Saturday was a very special day – I finally got chair rails in my living room and dining room! Yippee!!! I love the look of mouldings – I think they really enhance any space. Danny got out his pneumatic nail gun and bam! it was done in no time. Too bad its so we can get ready to sell the house. We are going to paint the top part a greyish tan which should go nicely with the medium green on the bottom and the burgundy window treatments. Now all we have to do is get rid of the miscellaneous crap that has gathered in those rooms (like the pile of toys (still unopened) from Christmas and Matty’s birthday) and we will be set!
The Wii party continues – not only did we bowl but now we have officially tried tennis and baseball. Felicia came over with her niece and the kids played all afternoon. Danny made a fantastic dinner for all of us – Veal Parmigiana and angel hair pasta with homemade garlic bread. The kids watched Night at the Museum and we all hung out watching Food Network. I truly love that channel as everyone well knows. Right now I am hooked on Semi-Homemade with Sandra Lee. I went out and bought the whole cookbook series and I have to say, every recipe we have tried so far is awesome! We were going to make her Ceasar Artichoke Dip, but we didn’t get around to it last night. It actually would have come in handy as we were definately suffering from NALS (Need A Little Something). I loved those football snack commercials – they really struck a cord – kudos to those ad execs.
So, I haven’t made any layouts lately, my inspiration is somewhat at a standstill. I hope I will get a creative moment soon – there is so much to scrap. So I collect the freebies, buy new kits, templates etc. from my favorite sites and wait for it to hit me. I also backed up my scrap materials – that is so important. I almost could faint at the thought of losing my collection. So I burned the zip files to a DVD and I am going to burn a copy to my network drive. I keep my materials on a portable, USB powered external hard drive for convenience. One of my favorite materials these days is felt. I want to add some felt elements to my LOs so I created these Hearts and word art in honor of Valentine’s Day.
