WOYWW #421 {Progress}

Happy Desk Peeking day, If you'd like to see some more creative spaces 
and or play along the link up starts here at Miss Julia's blog.


So let's see, last Sunday was Father's day in the US and hubs and I had reached a standstill on the reno because, the flooring we had ordered for the "library/media" room, we found out they no longer make it (same hickory wood that is in the living room & dining room) so, we had to pick a new color and It will not arrive until the 30th or so. So, I kicked him out of the house to go fishing (without me) yep, I like to fish but, we have had entirely too much togetherness the last few months so, I made a Featured Stamper case of a gift card pocket that involved embossing a glassine envelope ( which you can see here ) and then started on a few more to alter and ended up with something for our son's next birthday. ( that upside down Penny Black stamp to the right reads... Another Birthday? weren't you old enough last year?? ( this is the year he turned 21 and in the US that is the legal to drink a beer age haha and in his age group that is a big deal to be "old enough" )

This is a peek into the Kitchen as it was last night, the cabinet contractors will be back again in about an hour to wrap up this (for now) three cabinets the doors are too long so, they will need changed and I have to get a glass co. out to measure and do the glass panes for the china cupboards. The countertop guy will come friday and measure and make his templates for the stone to be cut and next monday the icebox and wall ovens will go in ( partial install ) the dishwasher, cook top and vent cannot go until the counters are in so. it is really exciting progress being made there.
It's such a relief because, I have been second guessing the color choice ever since I said lets do this.
 ( Whiskey Black on Maple from Schrock cabinets ) My first choice for wood stains almost always is the dark one but, I didn't want the kitchen to feel like a cave and it's a small space so. I think both hubs and I are really glad over this color.  Thanks for stopping by!

Your kitchen is coming along finally, Stacy, and it looks great! And so glad you were able to get some "me" time and stamp. Renovation work is not for the faint of heart! Hugs! xoxo

Pleased to see the work is moving on bet you'll be pleased when it's finished. I don't like this heat, we are not really used to it in the UK. That was funny what you said about pushing hubby out, we all need our own space sometimes. Thanks for the visit to mine, have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x22x

Hi Stacey, The dies are much deeper than the normal ones for paper they are designed for fabric ... But I'm sure they could be used on paper... I was a crazy obsessed paper crafter for years then last year I switched to fabric and wool so still trying to learn all there is to know about the sewing world and these dies looked great... she is a very good sewing presenter on the crafty shows here in the UK ... she has great you tube channels... just type in Debbie Shore... enjoy!! Best wishes May # 21

The basil leaves in my water - we were supposed to "infuse" some nature into our journal page, either leaves or flowers, by rubbing them over the page, then popping them into the water! Lindart

Lindart said...

Hi Stacy - the basil didn't really leave a smell - my journal already smells of maple sugar! I think it was all mostly ritualistic maybe? Anyway, it was fun!

"Entirely to much togetherness" I love that, did make me laugh. Good for you wanting some quality alone time.

Sorry I'm late - absolutely lost track of time this week.
