Guess What? Come on....You can guess....MY TAXES ARE DONE!!!!!!! YAHOOOOOLIO! Without ink or coffee stain on them even!!!! Don't I get a deduction for that too???? LOL! Oh I am so relieved to have that done! I get a bit of a refund...OK, enough to buy a small coke and a Happy Meal at McDonald's, but it something right? Bahahahaha! What a big dark cloud over my shoulders lifted! Yahooo and Yahooo again!
Just want to take a second and thank you for coming over to my Secret Sunday on Ustream Today! I had no idea what we were going to get into...hence the reason it's a secret and I'm loving the project! I so wanted to finish it, but Shari...convinced me to wait until next Sunday so we could all do it together. It's gonna be cool! It's one of those things that you just have to look around and find inspiration and low and behold...We did! A birdhouse clock thing! LOL! Can't wait to finish it with you guys next Sunday! Maybe I could do just a little to it tonight???? I guess not. Better save it!
So, after the show we all streamed over to Fi's to watch her go at it with miniatures. OH MY GOSH! There are some things that I am willing to tackle and some things I just NEED to just sit back and say, "WOW! These folks can work with the tiniest little things and have enough patience to not throw it across the room in frustration"....Simply amazes me.
I decided that the best thing for me to do was to work on my tiles. Here's the scoop...I have a cabinet that came out of the barn when I tore the kitchen out and remodeled. I stored chainsaw oil, motor oil and some insecticides in it and thought to myself, hey why not use that in the house to store my dies! Yep! It's a guy thing maybe! LOL! I cleaned it up and brought it in. It was finished with a a light oak stain that has dried up and gone the way of the cuckoo...So it needed something! That's when the tile thing hit me! So I have decided that it's going to take sixty-four 2x2 tiles to cover the front trim pieces. So, tile making... I am! Got a whole 16 done done and have a few more to go! LOL! But I'm having a blast doing it....I'm not doing anything crazy wild with the tiles, just covering them with pattern paper and then stamping them. Last, I've gone over them with Glossy Accents and allowed them to dry.
Here's a few shots....
The next shot is a bit blurry, but you get the idea....Cell phone camera.....
And here is the pile I need to get back to...
Well just wanted to check in and say thanks again for today!
Have an awesome start to the week!
