Published! :)

My June 2012 issue of Scrapbooks Etc... came on Wednesday. And then I remembered I had not one, but two layouts in it this time around :) If you have a copy, you can find my layouts on pages 28 (1973) and 36 (She's a Toddler) And how fun that they had also had my 1973 layout on page 4, the contents page! I am really excited about this issue. Flipping through it, I saw tons of great layouts and can't wait to sit down and really look at it :)

In basement remodel news...

for those who have been in our basement, they know it used to look like this. A big open space. Well, except the floor which is new. That was a huge ordeal. We had a new concrete floor poured that is now stained and polished. And since this photo was taken, Mike has framed out rooms (a family room, laundry room, FULL bath (love that!) and a workshop/storage space for him. Drywall is up, it is insulated, and plaster is going up. I really need to take a photo of the after picture as it is divided into rooms.
We finally got around to picking out a few paint colors, and I am happy to say the laundry room is going to be this nice pretty blue I love...
Of course it is not going to have the chandelier. (Thanks to Pinterest for the photo and the idea) But it will have a series of white cabinets, appliances and shelves. I am really looking forward to the end of the basement remodel. But we still have a little bit of a way to go!
Anyway, I will try to share a few more photos as we progress. But frankly, I am just excited for it to be done!

Hope you have a great Wednesday!

  13. Congrats on the pubs! I have changed my address with SBE but have not gotten this issue yet. If it goes to TN first, it might still be a few weeks, but I will check out your layouts when it comes! Congrats on the basement progress too. I LOVE that blue color, even if it does not come with the chandelier. :)
