About Me

Rochester, NH, United States
A place where Scrapping is savored as you would a wonderful meal and, while you're here, we enjoy each other's company --I am a working single mom who tries to juggle everything in the air with the hopes that when misses one she's not underneath to get whacked. Oh and I'm binlingual too :) Un lugar donde se desgusta el arte de Scrap como un bueno plato y de camino pasamos un rato entre amigos -- Soy una madre soltera que pretende no ser atropellada y aplastada cuando una de las multiples responsibilidades y tareas que mantego al aire se me escapa y caye a la tierra. Oh y soy binlingue tambien :)

My Back is Killing Me//Me Duele la Espalda

So since my last post the house redo took a turn. Last week I had a staycation (it is a case of use my PTO or lose it as well). I made a HUGE to do list and when Monday rolled around I hit the floor running or painting if you prefer. I painted/caulked windows in three rooms and began prepping the bathroom. It was the Bathroom (and the busted car gas line, an eye appt, a dentist appt and semi-battle with foam insulation) that effectively killed the forward momentum.
My bathroom is a disaster and really should be gutted but as no money decided a face lift would have to do. Unfortunately this room is oddly shaped which caused me no end of headaches to try and patch, prime and paint. I did so many acrobatically contortion-ed moves that by Friday if I never saw a ladder and paintbrush again I'd be a happy camper. It IS fully prepped for the final color coat but my back is so sore I've had to hold off till not so achy. I promise photos soon so you can see the transformation. It will look good finally. The living room is on hold and so is the spare room right now but I will get em done before the Holidays :)

As decided not to work it at all on Sunday I actually hit my craft table to create as had been highly motivated by these two challenges The CAS-ual Fridays and The Play Date Cafe. I am going to make separate posts for the actual entries but this was inspired by The Playdate's choice of color palette for this week which was Kraft-Taupe//Flesh//Cadet Blue --problem is I didnt' keep to it so this card can't count but I thought it was a lovely tapita creation.
Let me know if you feel the same way :)

This just makes ME a happy camper!! I am still an ardent fan of your talent and this one doesn't let me down. BEAUTIFUL! Glad you posted it for us!!

Sorry about your back. I say that as I sit hee with two hips out, and an awful groin pull I got as I went to fall and caught myself. You know. Sometimes you are just better off to fall. Take it easy. Heal. There is no need for hurry than your own zeal!!
