Monday Afternoon

Hey everyone! I know I've been MIA again, but I wanted to share a couple of pictures that will explain it.

So last September we had a water cooler leak on our dining room laminate floor which resulted in mold that got behind our kitchen cabinets. (you can see the new cooler in the picture below standing where the original cooler was) Not fun. In fact, I was pretty upset knowing what was ahead of us, especially with the holidays coming. Well, we knew we didn't want to be living in a construction zone during the holidays, so we had a company contain the mold and held off on the repairs until January. Here is the end result with my kitchen.

The cabinet over the microwave now has some new doors over it and the dining/living room is in the process of getting the new flooring this week. So to say I've been a little busy with life is an understatement!   :)

So while the flooring contractors were here today, I locked myself in my scrap room with the dogs and prepped all my projects for my February Workshop that is scheduled for this Friday. A very good distraction, even with all the noise.

I was practicing a new technique that we'll be doing Friday and here is the end result.
I know the color in the picture isn't the best, but I couldn't find my camera.The background was created using a technique called Bokeh. From what I understand, it's a photography term and a lot of people are doing this. It's actually a lot of fun. I'll be sure to share the ones from Friday night's workshop so you can see another color combo.

I hope you have enjoyed your President's Day. For those of you back east, I hope you are staying safe and warm. Doesn't look good for you and I really wish you could send some of that moisture our way! Have a good evening and I thank you for stopping by.
