Photo Projects

Instead of crocheting or knitting the past few weeks, I've been organizing photos and ordering photo products. I go through phases I guess.

I ordered this 16 x 20 canvas from Fabness about a week ago. I found a Groupon for it and only paid $25. I'm really happy with it. Even Michael was wowed by it. I've always been skeptical about ordering one of these, and unsure about image quality. But I have to say I'm really glad that I found the Groupon.

 The image wraps around the sides and it feels pretty substantial and not cheap.

I definitely will be ordering more. Right now they are offering 65% off plus free shipping.

This weekend I've spent countless hours weeding the flower beds. It's so frustrating. It doesn't look like I have done a thing. Now I think I'll go give the dog a bath. Have I done a post about Jingles? I don't think I have. Maybe I'll do that in a day or two. Jingles is our sweet little foster dog. More about him later. He is really smelly right now. So I should bathe him while I'm in the mood.

Have a great week!

Unfinished Projects

The dreaded second sock syndrome has affected me. I've started them but have little motivation to finish. I've decided to finish the second jewelry display that I started a few months ago.
It's coming along.

Michael has decided to take on another project. Ireland wanted her room painted an aqua color. No problem... or so I thought. A few minutes ago I walked upstairs to find this...
Apparently there is a lot of sheetrock work to do before he can paint. So to prevent all of her things getting dusty, he decided to take everything out of her room and closet. Great, is all I can say. Something else for me to do. (At least I didn't have to pack it all up)
Her closet was pretty full. Oh well, at least the walls and ceiling will look better.
Here's the new color.
It is a pretty color.
Now I need to go do something with all of our vegetables from the garden.
I see cucumber dressing and fried squash in my future.

Oh, and I finally went through our wedding photos and put a few in a Shutterfly photo book. I had promised to make my mom a book and never have. Shutterfly is pretty good, but not my favorite. I haven't used them lately, so when I received a code for a free book, I decided to give them another try. I like MyPublisher and Photobook America. I also want to try Artifact Uprising. If you want to see the book just scroll down to the bottom or click on the link below. (It's not very clear but it's something I guess)

Anyway, I am determined to get back to work on those pesky second socks. Maybe tonight. I may even get caught up on my blog reading. I've had enough of a break and I miss visiting you all.

Have a great week!
