Sorry folks, no card creations today (maybe later) but I would like to share with you what I've been up to the past few days and the reason for me being MIA.
I have been wanting to repaint my kitchen for awhile now ... but with DH health issues there just wasn't time and then once he came home I was afraid the paint fumes might give him some trouble. Well, it's been 2 months since his transplant and since we have friends from Toledo coming to visit tomorrow (yikes, that's cutting it close), I decided Sunday morning I would "get 'r done"!!
We've only lived in this house 5 1/2 years and I painted the kitchen YELLOW a few years back and thought it was time again for some freshening up. This time I decided to be brave and paint it my favorite color "PURPLE" ... actually the colors are FEBRUARY FROST (down the hall & wall facing into the livingroom) and WEEPING WISTERIA (a shade darker for the remainder of the kitchen).
I don't have any of my decorative pictures rehung yet but this will at least give you an idea of what it looks like. My husband says I caught him "in a weak moment" when he agreed to let me use PURPLE on the walls. I caught him in a really weak moment back in Toledo when I painted the front door "Barney" Purple, LOL!! The house was grey Victorian styled and actually when we had to sell it and move here to Akron, it was the FRONT DOOR that was the selling feature for the lady buyer!!!
SO ... what do you think??? It's not completely finished (decorative wise) but I really like it!! Guess I'd better get my work started if I'm going to be ready for my guest arrival tomorrow. I only have the rest of the house to get cleaned ... get groceries ... mow the lawn ... well, you get the picture!! Thanks for stopping by!! I hope to have a couple cards for you later too! After all, today is Crafty Secrets & Midnight Madness Challenge day!!! Enjoy your day!!!
