After a long break from my creative persuits, I think I’m back. (I did however sew my first skirt recently, but mainly because I needed something to wear to a play.) We also had my Dad and stepmom here for a week so we were entertaining them. It was nice to have them here for an extended visit. Usually, it’s pretty quick weekend kind of thing.
I’ve been able to start thinking about scrapbooking recently as my thyroid medicine has finally started to kick in. Then I learned, after my follow-up blood test, that my medicine needed to be increased. So I take that as good news. If I’m already feeling better and I still needed more medicine, then it can only get better right?
The following layout I started yesterday, my birthday, as a gift to myself. 🙂 I love it. I’ve had these photos on my table for a while. I realized the June Studio Calico kit had the perfect colors. (Which is why I put photos on my table to remind me to keep checking for just the right papers etc.)
Oh, and the last thing I have to share. My neighbor gave me this nightstand leftover from her garage sale last fall, I think it was. It hung out in the garage all winter waiting for warmer weather so I could paint it. I got my act together and did it the day before our visitors came. I love it. I even like the retro handles. I think they are kind of cool. Now I just need to get a better lamp. I think I have one downstairs that would work great, but I’ll have to get one to replace it with. 😉 I thought I had a “before” picture, but I can’t find it.
Here’s a photo with the other elements in the room. I love this color!
