I am so late in thanking Angela for the ribbon tag that I won in her recent giveaway BUT that doesn't mean that I wasn't thrilled to receive it. Thanks a bunch Angela! She has a fabulous etsy shop and a very lovely blog. Go visit her and be amazed yourself!
This is a handmade book kit from Carol Wingert that I have been working on. She also does fabulous things! (Really, everyone that I visit does way, way fabulous things!) Just a few unfinished pages that I like . . .
Oh . . . and the kitchen. I guess it is moving right along (I have kind of gotten over it, really just tired of the whole thing). I can't tell you the problems I have had with different vendors and I won't because it will make me cry/disappointed/furious all over again. Suffice it to say 1. DO NOT do any business with Sears; 2. NEVER expect anyone to call you RIGHT BACK when they say they will; 3. DON'T be afraid to have something redone because it wasn't done right in the first place; and 4. ALWAYS plan a remodel to take longer and cost more than expected! By the way, my contractor/crew has done a SUPER job! Never seen so many guys so particular!
My daughter and I are leaving tomorrow for Chicago for a few days. YIKES! Anyone have any tips, suggestions or places that we MUST see while we are there? Without having to deal with a taxi (I'm just a small town girl, going to the big city)!
PS Just found out that the cabinet doors (that had to be redone) won't be finished when promised so I have to wait 2 more weeks to get this kitchen up and running! Hopefully, my next post will be more cheerful! Until then . .
