My Furniture is In!!

My furniture is in my NEW scrapbook room!! I am so excited!! I don't have any "new"room pictures to show as of yet because I am now slowly moving everything back into my room. I didn't realize how much stuff I really have until I moved it out of my room. Now I am worried that I will not have enough room for all my stuff. LOL

Scrapbook Room Update

Sorry I have been away from the blogging world. Things are just a little crazy around here. I decided that I needed to hook up my computer back up to the Internet to check my mail and give you an update. So here is what's going on.

I found some great furniture on Crag's List last Thursday. On Sunday, my husband and I rented a Uhal truck and I drove down south, a good hour from our house, to a very richy neighbor hood. We slowly loaded very heavy furniture and made our way back home. Pick up my paint that same night and started painting Monday morning. My room is almost finished being painted. Just have some trim work to due. I have had lots of great help trying to get my room done. My poor house in such a mess with everything out of my scrap room and in my living room, my son's room and the dinning room. We should be able to move my new furniture back into my room Thursday night or Friday morning. As right now I do not have any pictures to share but once I get things back where they are suppose to be I will be sure to post pictures.

Well, that's it for now. Back to doing some housework while the kids are with Grandma for a bit. I can't wait for you all to see my new room!!

Another NEW Toy!!

I had a Scrapbook Garage Sale over the past weekend with great success. I had such a huge turnout that I ended up selling my baby Cricut and was able to go out a purchase the Cricut Expressions!! It is so COOL!! I haven't had to much time to play with it but I am very excited to have it. Hopefully I will be able to show you some neat tricks as I learn them.
I am also now in the process of redoing my room. I have already bought a few things and we are slowly working on it. My goal is to have my room done by beginning August but we will see. We have a lot of stuff going on during the weekends in July so it may be the middle of August before we can be done. I will post updates on my room as we get things done. Right now it is just cleaning things out and purchasing paint and goodies to go in.
