It's blog time check in...

I just love blog breaks. I'm resting a little before heading back to paint some more in the bathroom. Now, it is just touch ups and it's looking good. But I am NEVER wallpapering ever again. If I even hint at it, someone PLEASE give me the proverbial kick in the behind!

If I haven't tossed a pound from going up and down the ladder, I'm going on strike. It has been helpful in keeping me away from the fridge though ;-)

I've also spent some time checking up on you, my blogland buddies. I am so happy on how everyone is doing. Keep up the great work, you are my inspiration.

Back to the grind now... oh prayer request!!! My Emily is a sicky. She doesn't look or act it. She has to take breathing treatments to help with the congestion, a steroid and medicine for a double ear infection. God is good though. The one medication was gonna be $100, but her doctor and the pharmacist came up with an alternative that the insurance will cover. Can't wait to tell hubby!


  1. Hello Sandy!
    I just ran across your blog and what an inspiration you are!

    Thank you for sharing your weight loss journey and life with all of us!

    I will be back!

  2. I would love to see the new paint job. I wish I could get motivated to paint around here.

  3. I do hope the rest of your paint/wallpapering goes quickly for you. That is a lot of work!

  4. Had to laugh at the comment about wallpaper. I did the same thing once, to both the bathroom and kitchen in an old farm house that we used to own. I also said NEVER again. I did have help from my hubby but I still wouldn't try that one again.

    Hope Emily is feeling getter soon.

  5. Aww, my poor sweetie! Hope she is feeling better soon. Just think, 13 days till the invasion. Can't wait to see your hard work!

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
