Ding King!

Have you heard of the incredible Ding King? This nifty invention will pop the little dings out of your car doors. Keith and Gerry brought the Ding King over today and fixed up my car doors for me. Here's how it works.
Thanks Keith!! You are the Ding King King!

Halloween Spirit

Went to an unusual fine art fair over the weekend, where each booth was themed for Halloween. Love the goth/spook look.

Getting organized!

Oooh I'm so excited! Don brought me these wooden wine boxes and I have organized my scrapbook area! I am so happy to have a clean space to do my projects and SEE all my supplies. I wonder how long it will last, ha ha.

Oooh aren't these fun?! I am spellbound to the new Making Memories "Spellbound" line of Halloween acrylic stamps and embellishments. I like that they are not "cutesy" like some Halloween. I have a few little projects planned for these goodies. I will post when done.

Woodhouse Chocolate!

Feast your eyes on these treats found in St. Helena. Can you believe these are made of chocolate? It's one of the fabulous window displays that Woodhouse Chocolate always features. I don't know the price of each piece but aren't they incredible? Each is handmade. The next window display will feature Halloween. I will post a picture next time we go up there.

Happy Birthday LPC

Happy Birthday to my friend Pierce from work. Pierce loves to travel to the Czech Republic so last year I made him a Czech Barbie birthday card. Since he showed the proper appreciation for a handmade card and didn't tease me too bad about loving Barbie, he gets another Barbie card this year. Happy Bday LPC!

Labor Days

We have turned into a paint chain gang. The five of us are painting the downstairs hallway, one large living room wall, the staircase, and upstairs hallway. I loathe painting but it had to be done.
There is nothing inspirational about the tan semi-gloss we chose. It does the job -- it covers the scuff and wear marks. The walls, previously only painted in a flat paint, soak up the paint desperately. We must do two coats. I curse our architectural high ceilings. The one wall we don't paint begins to look very shabby next to its newly coated neighbor. I try not to compare them. A previous promise to paint Allie's room like the Disney color swatch book from Home Depot leaves me feeling faint.
Our painting sentence of three days hard labor is almost over.
I can't wait to go back to my real job tomorrow.
