Focusing on the Fun Stuff!

Focusing on the Fun Stuff!

I haven't seen my blog for some time. It is sad and lonely. I have been pulled off by Facebook, but am going to pay more attention to my blog. I promise. I signed up for an online blog class, but got lost 1/2 way through the first of 5 two hour classes. Thank goodness she has recorded both the video and audio, so I can go back and go at my speed. Even though she says "anyone" can do this, I don't think her 25 year old techy mind is wrapped around the fact that some of us are 60+ years old and were not born with a computer in our cribs. Anyway, I WILL get it. In the meantime, there are many other things vying for my time.
We are still working on the house, or I guess I should now say in the house. All of the cleaning, de-wallpapering, painting, decluttering, etc. is done (inside, anyway). Now the fun part - Staging! Moving things from here to there, adding little touches of color to the now neutral palette. One of the projects is to add a little pizazz to the deck. So, I am making seat covers and pillows in a fabulous printed outdoor fabric - on sale at Joannes for $1/yd on the remnant table. Off to the thrift store I went for large pillows ($1 each) and a few hours of designing, cutting, and sewing and I have fantastic throw pillows for the deck benches for only $2.00 each. Happy Me!
