can you spell crafting?

The prefix for any crafting around here is either wedding or baby.
I've been trying to get a few pictures here and there for
these lovely ladies to have later on.
In one week .... Saturday to Saturday .....
Bridget working on decorations for their wedding.
I had hauled home a freebie crib a while back with plans to make it into a bench.
I probably wouldn't have gotten around to that anyway,
and the crib was needed so we started refinishing it.
I did some sanding the other weekend and started with the spray paint.
Came home from work one day and the crib was finished.
Dear hubby/dad/papa got the sander and sprayer out .... and voila!
So, being the anxious Nana that I am, we set it up in the living room to make sure all the pieces were there.
Needed to buy a few more screws, but it is done!
And by the end of weekend it was delivered to where the little cherub can actually sleep in it.

Check that one off the list!
On to the next one.
Friday I hit the kitchen with the goal of getting rid of things and cleaning.
The appliances moved, got cleaned over and under, and I found this lovely little dial on my bottom drawer in the refrigerator!
I am totally dibble sometimes.
Everything kept freezing in my fridge and it was getting rather frustrating.
Great to keep a bag of ice in the bottom drawer of the fridge, but really?!
I got that dial moving and my tomatoes have been safe since.
Small canning jars?
In love with them.
They hold everything you ever needed!
I had a serious cheering section, in the form of daughters, going on.
They were waiting to see what they could haul out of here.
I love having big kids that I can pass off things to.
Helps me out in the getting rid of guilt department.
Saturday was crafting for Blayde & Charlene's wedding.
Although the wedding is still 10 months away ... she's a bit like me.
Get those buggers crossed off the list and quit worrying about them.
So we did.
 Is this photo vague enough?

Gal party doing centerpieces ... and they are (drumroooolllllll) done!!


The bride makes the decisions and we get to work. So fun!

Use and reuse is my motto.
I could almost click my heels.
Several boxes of wedding deco left my laundry room and moved on over to Char's house ...
all redone!

Sir Sebastian who knows what it takes to be held.
He is hilarious!
Has that pout thing down pat.
And ... makes it known that he wants to be held upright with a view to the world.

Saturday was a tad bit windy and we went through a good deal of flying spray paint.
Rule #754: Unless you're really blind and need them ....
lose the glasses before spraying paint in the wind.
(I'm not even going to discuss the color of nose hairs!)

I think I got most of it off now, but I really can't see them if they're not on so .....
someone will tell me I'm sure!

That's it for here folks.
A bit all over the place but, hey, that seems to be my world.
