- lily was kind of splashing in the tub tonight... kicking her cute little chicken legs in the water. funfun.

day 14

day 14 of project 365.

- saw an accident this morning involving 7 cars. one of which was under another car. insane. no word if there were any fatalities. let's hope not.
- got a well needed nap. lily sleeps a lot better during the day if i lay down with her. thank goodness she sleeps in her bed at night though. i definitely don't want to break that habit.
- the kids and i went to kelly's house for dinner. we got to see kelly, jordan, the super cute jaden (he just turned 1!) and hayley. i took pictures of kelly and jaden but they didn't come out! arg. the picture here is of brendan doing what he does best; playing the ds:)
- is anyone else watching american idol? i haven't watched it since kelly clarkson, but i am really wanting to see the auditions from here in louisville (supposedly coming on next wednesday). i wonder if i'll know anyone.

day 10

day 10 of project 365.

- today johnny and i have been married for 6 months. i love that man:)
- we went to the flea market. not very interesting today. what a shame.
- johnny is making great progress on the fireplace. soon we can seal the brick and add the mantle and it will be done! yay!
- i almost lost all of my mom's photos after formatting her memory card... i burned a cd of the photos, but the files wouldn't open!! and i formatted the card before checking the cd!! ack! BUT i did some research and found a program called art plus digital photo recovery that can retrieve photos lost after formatting/deleting. technology saves the day! it's a free program, so i recommend having it in case something like this happens to you!

day 7

day 7 of project 365.

- we got a little bit of snow. snow's first "real" appearance this winter. it didn't last very long.
- went to the architectural salvage place to get some more bricks for the fireplace. i love going there... they have everything you can imagine for a home... mantles, door knobs, windows, etc. and everything is from houses/buildings that have been torn down or remodeled, so it's all recycled. the things you find there you won't find at lowes!
-started on the surround for the fireplace. it's starting to look really good!
- went to mom's and played a little rock band. so much fun! i love playing the drums and singing even though i'm not very good at either!

journaling cards- free download!

i've decided to put up my journaling cards for download. if you do download them, please leave a comment on this post. also, let me know if you have any problems downloading them, etc. for this is my first time doing this.

here is a preview...

click on photo to download.

9 journaling cards with a camera, plate/fork/knife, house, suitcase/briefcase, car, bottle (for a baby) and a heart. there are two with the corners left blank so you can stamp/embellish them however you want.

day 4

day 4 of project 365.

- finally opened the new sewing machine. doesn't it look wonderful? i'm looking forward to the sewing 101 class i'm taking at joann's.
- designed some journaling cards for project 365. i might have them available for download, so look for that soon. i think they are mighty cute:)
- bought the binder/page protectors for project 365. i am going to use baseball card holders and alternate a picture with a journaling card for each day. the binders i got are plain craft paper/cardboard like so that i can embellish them however i see fit. a great buy at meijer for $2.99.
- got a tree skirt at meijer for next year at 75% off. i paid a whopping $6.99 for an almost $30 skirt! too cute with felt trees and buttons!!!
- stayed up way to late dealing with my brother. i wish he would get his crap straight. arg.
- brendan is finally home. yayz!

day 3

day 3 of project 365.

- the floor is done in front of the fireplace. i must say it looks awesome! now on to the surround, then sealing the brick and adding the mantel. i am happy with the progress of this. i will eventually show the finished product once we are done.
- lily and i lazily hung out all day. got some much needed laundry done. lily got a bath (see photo). i didn't;)
- my dad is in the hospital (and he drove himself there). nothing serious i don't think. although he has a pacemaker, it wasn't regulating his heartbeat so he went to the er. i hope he is taking his medication.
- continuing organizing my scrapbook stuff, but no new craftiness to share.

day 2

day 2 of project 365.

- we are going to grout the tile in front of the fireplace tonight. i am so excited for this to be done!
- johnny, the baybee and i went to the big flea market at the fair and expo center. this is where he bought me the cameras shown to the right. they are miniature cameras that once actually took real photographs. if i had the means (i.e. that darkroom i've always wanted) i would modify some film for them to work again. but the darkroom must wait. bleh. i love miniatures and i love cameras (i have a BUNCH), so here is a happy marriage of the two;)
- i saw a man with a prosthetic nose. interesting.
- lily slept the entire time we were at the flea market. very odd.
- john and i were looking at a bakelite set of drawers at the flea market and decided to open one. what was in the drawers, you ask? teeth. seriously. to make molds for dentures i guess. and i think they were real. eek (this is going to give me nightmares).

and as an added bonus, i would like to share a second photo of another great find from the flea market...

aren't they the cutest glasses you've ever seen? the lady i got these from said they are from the 1950s. and at $20, i couldn't pass these up. going on display in the baybee's room:)

i'm tired! goodnight!
