When It Rains...

...well it is raining actually...ha!

New washer and dryer www.stampingwithdi.com

So I talked about updating our kitchen...keeping cabinets, but new counters, backsplash and sinks. We also got new appliances cause they were about 22 years old. We got enough granite so we could do the bathrooms too...I mean it has to all be matchy matchy. Everything was original to when we built the house and it was just time. Jeff teased cause he said our kitchen appliances were fine, it was the washer and dryer that needed replaced, they were probably 25 or more years old cause we had got them when we lived in Mesa and had seen better days.

Kitchen before 2

We ended up getting the slate finish cause it does not show finger prints...and hello nice to meetcha I am anal.

So we have all the sinks, faucets and stuff purchased just waiting in the front room to get on the schedule, and then OnStage in Texas set us back a bit. With my upcoming surgery I am antsy to get it done. I told Jeff if I die, his new wife will love her new appliances, and updated kitchen and baths. He did not think that was funny.

So anyway, last week, the dryer would not start, and I was like oh crap...we have not paid off the kitchen appliances yet. Jeff had replaced the coil several times over the years but this was just not starting, like it would work as long as I held the button...who's got time for that...ha! So Jeff lucked out and he got the type of washer and dryer he wanted. Front loading, cause I had my head set on no to that kind. But OMG! I love them, but probably anything I would love that was new...ha! We went with the slate color so it would go with the kitchen...you know new wife might be as anal as me...ok stop that Di. It wasn't funny the first time. But I do love that color eh?

So see all the crap above the washer and dryer in the top picture? I mean I did have it all in cute wire baskets but still. Well we got the pedestals with drawers under and now I don't have all that stuff up there cause it is in the drawers...so I could decorate...I mean seriously I could not reach what is on the shelf now anyway. So I shopped my house, I basically had all this stuff and just moved it to the laundry.

So cute right?

So I will be back to share more pictures another day as we go along...ok? I know it is not stamping but I have not been able to stamp much lately with all this going on, plus every table is covered with retiring stuff in my studio.  I do want to get some cardstock guts cut so I can play a little as I recover.

Are ya bored yet? I hope not.

When Easter is Over

Rae Dunn Stamping with Di canisters www.stampingwithdi.com

At Easter time I had my Rae Dunn canisters set up in the studio, with some fun other stuff around.

If you came to my Spring Social, you saw them. Well Easter is over so I turned the canisters around and had a friend make me some decals to put on the back for my studio. Cool right? I may or may not hide treats in them...ha! I added some of our retiring Night of Navy Gingham ribbon for a pop of color.

I have been pulling out retired stuff for my sale as well as cutting cardstock for my class in the mail.  With my upcoming surgery I probably will not have a class in the mail for May so I can recover and then come June I will start with my Christmas Card of the Month class through November like the last few years! Fun right?

Geared Up ~ Stampin' Up!

Geared Up Garage www.stampingwithdi.com

I was so excited to see that Geared Up Garage with matching dies and the Metal Elements will be coming back in the new catalog. But this awesome DSP that matches and the Black/Silver Striped Metallic Ribbon are retiring so make sure to grab those today. Oh and don't forget that the bundle price where you save 10% off when you order the set and the die together ends June 3.

This is one of the cards from my Country INKers Spring Social, and was inspired by Rick Adkins. Thanks Rick!

Pucker Up!

Tier tray lemon www.stampingwithdi.com

Happy Easter everyone!  I played around with a Spring display and I could not resist doing lemons!  I love looking at stamp sets that will work in decor around the house and I am sad to see that Lemon Zest and the matching punch are retiring but now I can use it for decorating and not worry about where I put the stamps...ha!

If you do the same and need this set make sure to order it right away so you don't miss out, especially for the punch...tools like punches, embossing folders, dies etc. can run out quick and won't be re-ordered.
