Almost There!

Good morning all! I know you all want to see the craft room and I have to tell you that I'm almost ready to take photos and reveal the entire room to you. My new window covering will be installed on Friday afternoon so if I can get some good pictures on Friday night I'll show it all to you on Saturday if the photos don't come out well at night then I'll be taking pictures on Saturday during the day and I'll show them to you after that.

Anyway, today I'm showing you the custom vinyl lettering that I got for above the window in my room. I know I'm not supposed to link to a store that is a competitor to SU! but in this case I'm going to as SU! does not make custom pieces (like my blog name) and EAD Designs does. I just e-mailed Emily what it was that I wanted (the Design Center application wasn't working at that time) and within about 5 minutes she had some samples for me and within about a half hour I had paid for and was patiently (or not) waiting for my letting piece to arrive. It only took a couple of days for it to arrive, too! Even with a textured wall it was quite easy to apply and I think it just looks fabulous...would you agree? I love it! Oh, and please know that I could not get a good picture of the wall color. The green I have, while I didn't like it to begin with, is so pretty and clean!

So, this week is pretty busy. I have Bible study tonight, Jon's athlete of the quarter awards evening on Wednesday, Kyler's spring concert on Thursday night, the window coverings are being installed on Friday, the AWARE breakfast is Saturday, and Sunday is church and a VBS decorating party. Whew! I'm tired just thinking about it all! In between I'd love to get some crafting in so I hope to have some "stuff" to show you again soon!

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone!Smiley from millan.net

Wow! It looks great so far can't wait to see the rest! Maybe you'd be up for a cross country trip to do one for me??! I love the yellow...my bedroom is a pale-er yellow and it's so nice to wake up to. (I don't think my husband likes it as much though) Thanks for sharing!
