Lake Update

Well we just got back from the cottage.....roads were clear amazingly!The front door is in...the bathroom is rounghed in.....YEAH! If the weather permits the will be ripping off the back porch and stairs that are shifting daily and messing with the foundation. Once they have that gone and the foundation problems fixed the will move back in and start ripping down walls, insulationg,drywalling and finishing which includes several electrical projects.

I thought I would post a picture of the wall paper that was up in the bathroom in the cottage......redoing the bathroom is also a dirty job................ glad we have a contractor for that job. Threee months until we should be "opening" the cottage.

Some Layouts

So I uploaded some pictures to my new laptop and saw a couple of LOs that I did. One is from some pictures from cross country my junior year in high school which would be fall of 1980.The other is a LO of Eddie from our trip to Maui. He bought a sun visor that had a piece of fake hair sewn in it so it looked like a "surfer dude". He had to have the hat........

So last summer I was involved in a focus group for Provo Craft for a new product coming out later in the year and that product is the Cricut Imagine. Eddie kept nudging me to get it once it came out. I finally found it for a good price right before Christmas and bought one. I finally took the time to set it up ...calibrate it and make some initial cuts. I will post more later but here are two pics of simple things it can do. One is just printing and cutting ( Beautiful). The second is five layers printed, cut and then assembled ( Good Times). Both of these are from the cartridge that came with the Imagine.

Betty's Bungalow at Camp Edwards

Some of my friends have not seen pictures of the cottage. It is at Indian Lake which is about an hour west of Columbus. I spent a lot of time there as a kid. The cottage is currently going through some updating.

Long Time No Blog

It has been almost a year since I have posted where to start....................

This year Eddie and I bought a cottage at Indian Lake from my Aunt Louise...she had owned it since 1953. WOW! We also bought jet skis.....hope I don't kill myself on them! We have a contractor doing some updates on it over the winter and hope he will be done by our 14th wedding anniversary on April 18th. I will try to post some pictures in future posts.

I thought I would post picutres of the Christmas cards I made for Christmas 2010.
