Happy Birthday!!


Hope everyone is off to a good start for 2016.
I wanted to start this post by wishing a Happy Birthday to my daughter Brittany!


She has a huge heart, a love for people and I am so proud to be her Mama! It seems like it was just a short time ago I was holding her in my arms and now she is a Mama herself to a precious baby girl.
It still seems like a dream that I am now a Nana :)

Now that the holidays are past us I am back to working on the unfinished basement (which I spoke briefly about but have not posted any of) A small corner of the basement that adjoins my laundry room is being transformed into a craft/sewing area. It is VERY small, approximately 7' x 10'. This is how it looked when I first started back in late summer.






and the ceiling...not so easy to get good pictures in such a tiny space...sorry.


It is a slow process as this is a project that is being done by using as many materials as possible that we already have leftover from other projects. It is quite challenging to me to save money and use left over wood, paint, fabric etc. I will be back in a couple of days to share some of the progress. Thanks for coming by to visit and have a great day!
Karen
