What Does the Fox Say?

Seriously, loving this little set from the Sweet Stamp Shop. Washi tape is from Stampin'Up. I need to finish up my house so I can play more. ;) Hope you're having a wonderful week.

Home Remodel PROGRESS??? If You Give a Mouse a Cookie Analogy

I feel like the story of this remodel is like the book "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie".
If you give Misty new flooring then she's going to want new cupboards to go with it ;).

As you can tell, I've been MIA from paper crafting for a while. That's because I just HAD TO go and start on a LITTLE remodel project for our home. We REALLY needed new flooring as our carpet was 20+ years old. Also, the tile we had put in about six or seven years ago was cracking and coming up in places (guess you get what you pay for). So, that led to me pulling up A LOT of tile...and led to us pulling out the carpet. 
We purchased some really nice laminate flooring at Costco and we were going to do the whole house with it, minus the bedrooms.
But then we kept thinking we might not want laminate in the laundry area/mud room because it gets wet and used a lot in the winter. That led to me buying this vinyl floating floor stuff that looks like slate.

But then that led to my house looking like this!

And this. Heaven help me. I knew once we put the laminate in that I would think there was altogether TOO MUCH WOOD in my I'm in the middle of painting all of my cupboards Heirloom White by Rustoleum. Love that color. You can see it here on my Stereo Cabinet makeover.

But then that led to fixing a bunch of the drywall in the laundry area so that I can paint it :)

So, the floor is finished back here, not that you can tell. We'll be texturing and painting this week.
something along the lines of this color.
Have a super week...I have to go weave around some paint cans to get to my bed now. ;)

My Creative Daughter Harry Potter Wand #9, Name: Unknown

The other day my daughter came in and asked me where "that white box was that was by the fire". I told her where it was and later this is what she came out with.
This Wand:
has a golden handle with turquoise on the rest of the wand and a powerful marble at the end.
In the wrong hands it could be dangerous.

We made these wands a while back using chopsticks and hot glue. It was such a fun afternoon activity. 
I love that she has such an imagination.
I wonder where it will take her.
Have a super duper weekend.

St.Patrick's Day Book Page Shamrock Banner

Looking for something fun to craft for St. Patty's
This banner is pretty simple. I cut out the shamrocks from book pages and then used scrap papers at angles to fill in the negative space.
