A Change Would Do You Good....

Well, according to the US postal service and the miracle of delivery confirmation, I know that all my swaps have been received (even though I have only heard from one recipient so far- oh my goodness Helen... I never took a photo of your mini!)

So this is what was sent to Brigette for the cupcake swap organized by the lovely and funny Sharon....

a lil' basket of goodies....

and a quilted wall hanging....
complete with 'cupcake' quilted into the border...
and little quilted cupcakes!!!!


Hope she liked them!!!!

Well, I am making a few changes now that I am caught up with my deadlines and Sheryl Crow tells me that a change will do me good!


Remember my all nighter???? and the culprit????? Wehave been getting her to bed a little earlier each night and having her rise by 7:30 AM....

Change #1 - MAKING CHANGES TO BEDTIME AND MORNING SCHEDULE....

and look at what I spotted on the living room carpet at 7:30 PM last night!!!!!!

AHA! is someone getting a little tired?????? I think the changes are working!!!!!


This piece of furniture was originally yellow with white resembling bamboo (maybe?) that I acquired as a young girl in the late 60's (anyone else have that furniture set?).
But when I moved out, my parents had their house redone almost entirely in beige and gray (talk about a lack of color!) and so... my bedroom furniture fell victim to their remodeling craze....and let me tell you (just by coincidence, one of my mother's favorite lines!) it is U-G-L-Y!

Even the hardware!!!!

Change #2 ADD SOME PIZAZZ TO UGLY FURNITURE....and move to Sloppy's room so she can become less sloppy (is that possible?) with her clothing (ask me about the black garbage bag fairy some time!)

Voila!!!! (not completely dry yet)

and Marvin is repainting the desk component of the set that has been in his room since the furniture made its way to our home a couple of years back...

He says that he is painting blue/white stripes!

The other day, we went to the beach....
the one away on the other side of the lake from the crowds in the village ...
and the tourists....
But tomorrow, Sloppy, Marvin, and I are headed to my hometown, Ottawa....
Change #3 - CHANGE OF SCENERY....

just kidding!

It's summer there too!
Do some hanging out and maybe a tourist thing or two.

Hope your weekend is full of changes! They will do you good (at least, that is what Sheryl tells me!)
