6 weeks until moving day

Hey all.. I know.. I've been quiet lately.

*Between getting thing set up for this Bloggy Birthday Bash in July
*Trying to figure out how to make a button (Anyone help me here? I am LOST)
*Getting packed up to move
*Painting and assisting a little with construction
*Keeping up with my bloggy friends

I have been a busy girl. As well as the kids and work.... AHHH....

But.. I do have pictures.... not many.. but a few with more coming weekly.

This first set of photos is of the toddlers room. The color was supposed to be a little browner, however came out more yellowish. Amazingly, it looks great. Dave likes the color and I have images of little girls in swirly white dresses dancing around their new room when it is all decorated!

In reality, it will be little girls in shorts, food on their face and hair standing straight out running around putting their grubby hands on my new paint job. Yep.... the reality makes ya cry!


Before
(The room was almost a greyish color, I never realized it until the yellow went up. The closet had not been painted before, so it was a clean slate for my additions. Oh.. and we are taking off the doors to the closet to put up fabric like "princess style" curtains.)



Before
(Faith looking rather bored because of all the taping and covering up of windows and doors I was doing. She just wanted me to get onto painting!)




After
(It looks all grainy because I was taking a picture in a non-ventilated room after I had just used the paint sprayer on the walls and there were particles in the air. Needless to say, Lilith did not sleep well that night.)
Today I am painting the ceiling to repair what I painted while doing the walls.. I am a dork :)

I will put up pictures of the basement bedroom in a few days (It is almost fully framed) and show it all coming together!!

It almost look like you sponge painted the walls with the particles in the air... :) Looking good! I'm a dork, too - I always hit the ceiling when I'm painting the walls of a room and have to touch up the ceiling...(grin!!) I'm looking forward to seeing more of your hard work! ;)

If you need help with a button, I can help you out with that - just email me... :)

Good luck with the next 6 weeks - they're going to fly by...which can be a good thing! ;)

Thanks for your comment. You know, I think you follow my blog, but I've never visited you. I don't know how that happened.
Anyways, do you still need a button for your party? Do you have any specific graphics that you want to use?
