This past week has been... LONG!!! I really don't know where to begin so I will load up some photos from this week and go from there.
As part of my Christmas in July crafts I created this ornament/ decoration using a chipboard scrap left over from another project and some siding trim remnants from Scott's shed project as the frame. I hand painted the snowmen in the Winter scene watching the star shining brightly in the night sky. I had originally thought to leave the frame plain bright red but then decided to bring out the wood grain with some gold. I really love how this turned out and plan to make some more. From trash to decor!

I really love how this project turned out and I am going to be selfish and keep it for myself. I am always giving my creations away but this one I have decided is MINE all mine!
We worked away at Uncle Jessie's until about 10 PM and then drove the 2 hours home - it was after midnight when we pulled in the driveway. Yesterday (Saturday) was spent trying to catch up on some much needed rest so that I could go into work this morning. And it is looking like I will be working everyday this week... so 6 days straight.
Before we got started at the house we went to THE BIG CLOCK! I got to experience my very first "Volcano Burger" . It is a Burger loaded up with smoked sausage, Provolone cheese, fried onion rings, jalapenos and Buffalo Ranch Dressing. We followed our burgers with a slice of Strawberry cheese cake made with Greek yogurt. YUMMY!
Let me back up to earlier on Friday... MUCH earlier. On my way into work at 3:30 AM (yes - I went in an hour earlier too) a double trailer was in front and to the right of me and it threw up a rock... yes another damaged windshield. I am hoping the chemical repair they are coming to do tomorrow will fix it and the thing doesn't spread and require a complete replacement AGAIN this year. I hate rocks!
Well I guess that wraps up this week.. you all take care.
