You Are My Sunshine

Good Morning!! Happy Independence Day!!! Do you have anything special planned? We thought about going to see the fireworks last night but around 7:30pm it decided to storm, really bad. I was just about to leave work and it just came down. The wind was so strong it flipped over a table at Bed Bath and Beyond (a store right next to mine) and it mangled the umbrella that was in the table. It blew clear across the parking lot and just ripped it to shreds. It did stop raining before the fireworks started but the ground was soaked and I didn't think it would be much fun.

 It is official, we do have a house. We signed the lease agreement last night. We wanted to buy when we got out to Arizona but realized we should take a bit and decide exactly where we wanted to settle down. Since we have never been to Arizona or Maricopa (the town we will live in) we didn't want to make a buying decision without seeing it in person. The house isn't as big as the other one I shared with you a week ago but at least it doesn't smell like cat pee. LOL!!  AND it's way cheaper than the other house. :-)

 Here are a few photos.

 So the kitchen is not as big as I would have liked and we have to buy a fridge but I love the granite counters and that it has an island.  We do a lot of cooking and we need counter space.

The picture directly above is the loft and I am super excited about that.  A place to set up play area for my kids; TV, games, etc....

I am just happy to finally have a home, looking for one has consumed most of my days for the last month or so.  Plus the backyard is pretty big and open with no trees or landscape so my kids and dogs have plenty of room to run and play.  :-)

So today I have some amazing projects to share with you that our Delightful Designer, Erin, created using our July card kit. 

There are still some card and scrapbook kits left so if you would like one, head over to our store and pick one up.  :-) 


Adorable, love this little set.  :-)  

That's it for today.  If you get a chance to craft this week, play along with one or both of our sketches for your chance to win our August kit.  The winner will have their choice of the card or scrapbook kit.  Upload your project in the sidebar by July 23rd for your chance to win.  :-)
