Before Christmas it was necessary to straighten out (clean) my craft area! I had not seen my table or the floor in a long time. Now, it is not quite there yet, but this is what I've got.
It is part craft area, part family room and bar. We never use it as a family area and the bar is only used for holidays. I wish I had painted ALL of the paneling. Maybe some day I will get ambitious and do the rest.
I have an update on my great, great nephew, Thomas. Saw him before Christmas and after (but he was crabby and sleeping). Of course you want to see pictures of him, right?
He looks like all boy!
Saturday was family day and time to get away from the cabin fever of this cold. It was actually a balmy 28°F that day. We picked up some boots that I ordered online, then on to Christopher and Banks where I spent most of my Christmas gift card. I got a really neat reversible vest
(Of course this isn't me.) The other side is navy with a bit of a subtle checked pattern.
I can wear it now and into Summer on the lakeshore! LOVE IT!
After I was "spent" shopping, we went on to Sam's Club where I had a coupon (Groupon)
for $20 merchandise and $20 gift card if I joined. After stocking up, and even though we had plenty of groceries, we went to our favorite pizza place. Yum! What a perfect day and got home before the Arctic Blast came in.
