Update on Eric and his little house!

So many people ask me how Eric is doing in his little house. I had to look back on my blog cause I did not remember if I had posted final pics of his house once he moved in, and I did.

Can you believe he has been living by himself for over a year now? He loves it and so do we.

Eric bushes to house

Jeff poured a sidewalk from our house to Eric's and then from his door out for the van that picks him up to go to work. Jeff also planted some purple potato bushes and they are filling in so nicely.

How cute eh?

So I have now gotten so used to saying in my head...I don't live here...ha! That way if it is messy I don't have to live in it. He does at least wash his hands...ha!

Eric soap - such a guy

I love the soap he picked. Such a guy eh?  One thing I do with my Stampin' Up! income is pay to have my house cleaned every two weeks. When Eric moved I told him that I would have the ladies do his house once a month and he agreed. I figure a good cleaning once a month is good, he does not too bad with his helpers keeping it pretty good...dirty clothes and bed not made aside...hey I don't live there right? Ha!

Anyway thanks so much for asking about Eric, we appreciate it so much. He says hi!

It's Got That Lived In Look Now

Eric's house

I totally forgot to post pics of Eric's finished house, I think I might have shown this one with the red door? Thanks Fita for reminding me. We still need to pour a sidewalk from our house and out to the driveway, when they pour the driveway for the big house they will do Eric's.

Eric's living room

Here is where Eric spends most of his times, movies, games etc.  It didn't take him long to buy a bigger TV, I said "oh can we have your old one?" and he said "it's for sale" and I said "I'll pay for it with a house!"

Eric's bedroom

Eric's bathroom

The bathroom, everyone loves the floors and so do I.

Eric's kitchen

The kitchen, thank me for not showing his Sports Illustrated Calendar that hangs in the kitchen, everyone comments on it...ha!

When I mention the big house here it is.

Painting Party!

Houses primed for painting

Ok it wasn't really a party cause I was stuck inside the house as it was all masked up for painting, I felt like the end of ET. Luckily I had nowhere to go today and lots to do inside, but it was so hard not being able to peek outside the windows.

windows masked up for painting

This was the view...ha!

OMG all the picture taking I did for Eric's house I forgot to take before pics of ours. So as I was inside our painter took a pic and posted it on FaceBook so I could see it being started. This is after the houses had been primed and the accent started.

our house painted

This is pretty much done, just a bit of touch ups to do, the doors have not been painted yet, the front doors will be red. They will be back Sunday to finish up.

Eric's house painted

Look how cute Eric's house is. His door will be red too.

I almost bawled in the restaurant tonight. We were talking about tonight is the last night Eric will sleep under our roof in his own bed and bedroom. He said "are you going to miss me?" I had to quickly look away and think of something else.  He is only 25 feet away, but it is still going to be such a change for all of us.

Well this is quick, I have my downline make n takes n lunch tomorrow, and Eric gets moved tomorrow. Also the big house gets the framing starting tomorrow...can you say yowza!!!

Here's a little sneak of my swap.

Home is Where You Make It

Silver creamer wind chime

We are getting the houses ready to have the exteriors painted this week and look what Jeff found as he went to move the wind chime.

Eggs in the wind chime

Jeff thinks they are dove eggs. We will leave it hanging till the last minute and then find a safe place for it.

Bird sitting on eggs in wind chime

I took this pic from the window.  Another bird comes and feeds this one like it is a baby. Weird eh? But cool.

Eric's kitchen counter

Jeff and 2 of our neighbors put Eric's counter in...next is the plumber to come in and finish and that is it...moving day.

Stencils & Infusions Video Tutorial

Infusions Color Stains and stencils Diana Gibbs

Today was a crazy day.  I had to run to the Hobby Lobby and pick up a rain check for some goodies for my retreat coming up, then I ran into TJ Maxx to find a couple baskets for Eric's closet to put underwear and socks, and look at this fun pencil box I found.

pencil box Diana Gibbs

I love anything that says this saying or Love What You Do, and check out what I put inside.

inside pencil box Diana Gibbs

My watercolor pencils, blender, aqua painter, and a couple pencil sharpeners, is that not perfect? I love when I find neat things at TJ Maxx or Home Goods, but you need to get them right then and there, I have learned don't wait, it will be gone the next time.

They delivered Eric's fridge, and we also started getting some furniture for Eric's house, as he will be moving soon, we got two cute gray leather kick out chairs and an amazing entertainment center that won't be here till April, he will use his old one till then, this way he can save up for a bigger tv he says.

Eric's chairs

Too funny as we locked up his house, I was like "I need a key" and Eric just rolled his eyes as he gave me one...ha!

When I went to Lydia Fiedler's retreat last year she taught us this fun technique, so I turned around and taught it in class last weekend...here is a video to show you how it was done since I had put a sneak on my blog and had lots of questions.

What fun eh?
