Wow! It seems like forever since I've posted! SO much has been going on my life right now....crazy and stressed have been the feelings of the past couple weeks. Their is SO much to say that I feel like it would take weeks to tell you all about it!
So, I'll give you the quick *as much as I can make it* recap. The craziness all started with plumbing woes. And I am not kidding...it's been insane. Jeff and I found raw sewage in our yard a couple weeks ago!!!! EWW!!! Let me tell you it stunk! So I'm off to find the number for our local water district and got in touch with the on-call guy...of course this happens on a weekend, so no ones in the office. Well the guy comes out and tells us that it's sewage and it's our problem. The main sewer line is working great. So....that means it's up to us to fix it and pay for it! A call to the plumber is in order.
Well, before our raw sewage leak we had our kitchen sink backed up! So we had to call the plumber to come and unplug it since our attempts and numerous bottle of Drano were not working! That was plumber visit number one. The sewage was visit number 2.
Since the plumbing guys were out fixing our sewage issue, Jeff mentioned that our sump pump needed to be fixed. It was one of those "it's broken, but not in need of immediate repair, but has to be fixed" things. Well, they were there, so why not fix it now? Ok, the plumbers say they can take care of that while they're here. Well that fix and the sewage took 2 days to fix.
A couple days later, I'm downstairs to let the dogs out and I notice we've got water on the floor. Our basement had FLOODED!!!!!!!!!! What now! The sump pump that they had fixed has erupted and flooded water all over our utility room and more. UGH! Another call to the plumbers. Well....it gets better, trust me...while they're out fixing the sump pump this time...our kitchen sink backs up again! You've got to be kidding me! So, they fix that too!
I was starting to wonder when our plumbing woes would end! Sheesh!
And then after our plumbing gets fixed, my dog gets sick. And I mean sick, we thought we were going to lose him. Atilla is the first dog I've had and it was a really hard week. I'm happy to report that he is doing INCREDIBLE!!! He seems back to himself...as much as that is for a 15 1/2 year old dog! The only difference is that he has declared himself spoiled and wants to eat the best he can...ground beef, chicken, green beans...no dog food for him! I think I've cooked more ground beef in the last week than I have in months!
Thanks for bearing with my outpouring of life issues!
Now, onto some fun papercrafting goodness! I went to a baby shower last weekend and made this for my friend. She is having her second baby and it's a boy! We don't know the name yet as they're keeping it a secret.
I got this cute ark stamp from Amuse and knew it would make the cutest baby cards! This was my first time playing with this stamp. I used some of my Copics to color in the ark and animals. I SO like Copics...they are my favorite coloring medium yet! I'm really impressed with the vibrancy they give.
The patterned paper is from my stash, I've had it forever!!!
