Update on house and projects

Wow, what a busy week...
Working on the house, CK convention, swimming, being sick, ahhh...
It was fun though!
Here are some pictures to recap my past week...

The girls could not get enough of being thrown between Daddy (uncle Brian) and Pop Pop.

I sanded down all the tongue and groove boards that I bleached last month and then cleaned them and then stained them with "white oak" stain.  I love the look of them.  You can see the 3 boards on the right have the stain on them.  It gives them all a uniform look and brightens the wood.

All the wood I stained.

The guys (Brian and his dad and later in the evening Jeremy) finished the ceiling in the loft, the walls in the loft over the stairs.  Brian hung the ceiling fan and finished all the insulation in all the rooms.
Saturday was such a productive day.

We were at the house until 1:15 am!
We began at 9 am!
What a long and wonderfully productive day!
Halloween treat toppers... wait until you see what these go on!

I am loving the new DSP Playdate....
oohhh and that new ribbon punch!!!
Here are some of the projects that I made at the convention...
