Hello and a good afternoon to all of you! Fall certainly is in the air today. It is a cool,damp day but I am enjoying it .The old crock pot is making the house smell so warm and comforting with the aroma of my homemade beef stew. I will be serving it up with some fresh baked sourdough bread.Yummy! Love good home cooked meals! It has been a while since I made a post but life has been crazy busy here at the home place. Hubby and I are still trying to work at getting the craft room finished. We are making custom cabinets and such and it takes time when one (okay me) can't seem to make up their mind as to what they want and where they want it!
Hubby is good at woodworking and he designed and built me a fantastic cabinet for my craft paints! I love it! We decided to stain and poly the inside in case of any paint spills .We thought or maybe hoped is the better word that spilled paint would come up easier from polyurethaned wood. Maybe I will be blessed and never find out if we were right or wrong.LOL! Thought that I would share a sneak peek at the cabinet with you all today.The pics are not the greatest because of how the layout is in the room ,it made getting a full shot almost impossible.
This just show the paneled bead board door that he made for the cabinet.
This is a shelf that he made on the backside of the door.I use it to hold my mediums,pigment paints and special paints.
This is the inside of the cabinet where I keep the rest of the paints.The top shelf holds my duplicate colors and the other 6 shelves are sorted by color family.I made tiny labels with the name of each color of paint for the bottom of each bottle.Whew ,but that took some time! LOL! I do need to restock but I love how they are organized now.Thank you hubby!
Do you want to know if you are getting old? Yes ,well then I suggest you watch my great nephew for a bit and you will have your answer.Gee whiz ,I don't remember my child being so full of energy! My mom calls him Tornado Alex.The child has to pick up everything he sees,and is so hard to keep in one place for two minutes.Yep I am getting old! I am ready for a nap after chasing him for an hour.LOL! He is a sweetie ,even though I can not keep up.
Alex ,at Grannies house ,discovering a few new toys Aunt Jen bought him . Think this was the longest he ever sat still.
Maddy his baby sister.Sorry about the photo ...I was trying to hold her and get a pic.
These two bundles of joy are my next door neighbors and Alex certainly keeps us all on our toes.It has been a long time since my home had to be child proofed but it slowly happening.Smile.
Well I am off to check on the beef stew and to wait for hubby to get off work.May your days be full of happiness!Hugs,Jen
