William's Space for Christmas 2012

Although we still have to stain the bed and add the painted trim, this HUGE project is almost complete!! Hubby and my BIL Benny, made this possible for my youngest grandson who lives with us. He just luvs it! I was so pleased that he did!! I re-made his bedroom for him as part of his Christmas! It was a chore pulling everything together but I had a blast doing it for him! I still have to finish his curtains that match that smaller pillow underneath the bed. The toy chest is from Ikea. It cost a small fortune to get it delivered but it is just what he needed to organize his space. Now he has his own place :o)

My First Post of the New Year!!

The happiest of New Years to you all! I do hope you all had a blessed and happy Christmas!
Not too bad I guess, today being only the 3rd of January and I am writing a post! A good start I think!! I hope to give my much neglected blog quite a bit more attention this year than last.
So, today I have spent quite a bit of time searching for a new blog theme for my blog today. There is this one particular web site that has a variety of blog designers on it and for the life of me! I can never seem to find it without searching for it for hours! I think it is called the scrappy cat or something similar, but I just can't seem to find it as yet! You'd think by now I would learn right?!
Yesterday, I started working on a new calendar project prototype. I am happy so far with the way it is turning out. It took me quite some time, but I finally figured out a way to make a triangular slide through drawer to fit behind the calendar, not the easiest thing I ever did do. The pics show the base of the calendar.
I do not like the placement of the holes so I am going to change that on the next one and since I am making this for my hubby, I think I will use Graphic 45's A  Perfect Gentleman. I just think it will be much "funner" than the one in the pics.
Well, I am signing off for now to work on the calendar. Everyone have a great day and a blessed New Year!!
Tons of Love!
