A year has flown by without me making a single post. It has been a whirlwind of highs and lows. Here are a few highlights from 2015.
I got some projects done for the house.
I bought a coffee table for $10 from a neighbor who was moving. My husband Jeff helped me sand it down to bare wood.
I used two different kinds of stain. The light color is traditional stain and the dark color is a stain and poly in one. A couple of strips of painter’s tape was all it took to create the Surfboard stripes that I hoped to create.
And we finally hung some curtains on our sliding glass door. (Ikea Kvartal if your interested in knowing what the curtain/rail system is)
My daughter finally got her driver’s license at the end of the summer and so I was able to quit my “chauffeur’s job”. She was chosen as co-Drum Major for her band this year and I was glad not to have to pick her up 3 days a week, plus game nights.
My son James and I built a headboard out of pallets and fence slats. Cutting pallets apart was a major pain in the *bleep* so you won’t be seeing anymore pallet projects from me anytime soon. 😉
We flew to DC for my Nephew’s Bar Mitzvah. It was a blast!
Our daughter attended a Bassoon and Oboe band camp at USF. It was surreal to see her in a college dorm and think “just two more years and we will be empty nesters”.
We attended my niece’s wedding and got goofy in the Photo Booth. And went to the Salvador Dali museum and got even goofier!
Although I am not Jewish myself, I thought that I could make a New Year’s resolution at Rosh Hashanah to start blogging again. So far, so good.
Here are the cards I made for my niece and nephews for their Rosh Hashanah celebrations.
I am finishing up my Halloween cards and I will post again next week. TTFN
