Brought to You by the Letter "S"

S is for scrapbooking!
Finally a scrapbooking post, it's been so long since I've made anything!
We had an open house this last weekend, so we've been very busy getting the place ready. This included the near completion of my scrap room..but more on that later.

We had lots of people come out, even though our AC went out last week, and it's going to be a while before they can fix it.

So today I've made several thank you cards, and I put them all in one picture, since we'd be here forever if they were all separate.

I like to make thank you cards from my scraps, then they can all end up a little different, except for the 3 that look the same..ha. I made a set of 4 of those, but obviously I sent one out already.
Here's a closer shot.

And one from the other side.

Hopefully soon I'll get some pictures up from the party, and then after that I'll put up pictures of my scrap room...it's pretty amazing! I absolutely love to spend time in there..if I didn't have this pesky job, I'd never leave.

You've Got to Break a Few Eggs...

We've been busy, but we don't have as much to show for it. The unpacking process is both a slow and painful one.
The last of the large projects was painting the master bedroom. The original plan was a light green, to match the sheets, to keep it light and "zen-ish"...

I'd just like to say that, we all make mistakes. This color was pretty much neon snot green, and I apologize for attempting to put it on my walls.

We went with an ivory color, which is much better, and not at all like an Easter egg.

Our room is pretty big, but now it feels bigger, and lighter and I love it.

So today they delivered our Tempur-pedic bed. We've upgraded to a king size, so there's more room for our furbabies to sleep with us. We got the Tempur-pedic cloud, so tomorrow you can ask me what it's like to sleep on a cloud. I'm already in love with it.

I've been collecting pieces from this bed set for probably a year and a half..I love it that much. And now seeing it on my bed, I love it more.

The duvet cover also has chrysanthemums on it. The background is a cream color like the walls. I'll probably have pictures of the duvet later, but right now since I'm the energy nazi and we don't have the AC on, it's way too hot to even think about using a duvet.

Did I mention I have the best male model in the business?

Now I'd like to bring you a warning. Beware the Cardinal Ninja. They may strike at any moment, and before you notice it is too late, and you are stuck with exhibit A.

You never know when an attack will occur. You have been warned.
