Day #2 Excavating

The excavators showed up before the dumpster was removed. So they sort of moved it so they could get their machines in so they could work. While their dump truck made a run for the dump the dumpster was removed. They got everything done. We are waiting on inspector to come out so they can okay everything so the footer can be poured and the the block laid. These are pictures from today's work.... so far so good.

The beginning of the end................

Well the loan and the permit for the new garage went through last week. On Friday the dumpster arrived and the old garage came tumbling down...............Bob the builder and his son took one day which was interrupted with heavy rain to take it down and put it in the dumpster which will be removed tomorrow.

Couldn't Sign in for the past few days!!!

Well it has been painful not being able to log on! We went to Kenton for the parish festival on Sunday.... along with many other sibs and nieces and nephews. We all had a great time! My niece turned 21 on Saturday and I made her a great card if I do say so myself. And I do!

I also got my new JustRite stamps orders from a Cricut MB memeber who sells them. She had great prices and fast shipping. I ordered them Friday nite and got them Monday afternoon! Here is a link to her blog if you want to order from her. She also sells a number of other things.

Happy Birthday To Me!!!!

Well today I am 45 years old........oh my how did that happen???? I had lunch at Chipotle with some family and my wonderful SIL Annette brought some yummy cupcakes for dessert. I did a little scrapbook shopping on the way home. I did pick up a Icicles punch by Martha Stewart. It is a new design that the ends fold up so it takes up less room. I got some great cards too! One from across the pond from my fried Bernie (Boo). Eddie got me one that plays Rule Britannia. :) I am no longer speaking to my nephew Joey (LOL). His card said something about my youth calling....long distance! Nick's card had a sticker that I wore while I was out shopping. It got me some looks.

I have also started putting Tack over and ove on the back of my stamps so I can get them put away. There is the stamp show in Cinci this weekend.

Novi,MI Stamp Show

Well Eddie took me there on Saturday for my birthday. I think his head was spinning as I did my shopping! I got some great stamps for my Christmas and Halloween cards but won't show them because I don't want to spoil my cards! I did find a cute new stamp company that I bought quite a few of....they are called Bugawumps. I also dug through the pool at DRS store and found many that I can never find in stock when I go shopping at stores that carry them. I am planning on going to Stamp Away USA in Cinci this weekend! I was happy that most of the stamps I got were unmounted!!!!!
