HOT!!!!! That IS what it IS! HOT!

Here it is Sunday once more and I am here to check in with you all. I hope everyone that reads this blog is having a wonderful Summer!

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!

#lovesummerart an online Art Collaboration on You Tube
This weekend on You Tube over 200 Artists, Crafters and Creators have gotten together to have a Collaborated On-line Art Show. All you have to do to enjoy it is go on you tube and type in #lovesummerart and MANY Artsy videos will come up for you to enjoy and to be inspired by. This was my first creation and I am planning to do one more small project tomorrow.
An Exploding Canvas
The theme was "Summer" of course for this month. This will continue next month with a whole new theme and #! I will of course share that news once the new projects start coming out.

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!  

 Friday I went into work and worked 4 to 9 AM and then came home and Scott and I drove to Greeneville, SC to work on his Uncles House. We repainted the downstairs bath a lovely Spring Green. I just had to as it was the paint his Aunt had bought and had shown me years ago and I wanted to make her dream and vision come to life even though she is gone. And boy oh boy were we thrilled with the result. It is so very Spa like in there now. Scott painted the moldings and the vanity a crisp white and replaced the ceiling light fixture near the shower with an inexpensive LED light that puts out the softest light... VERY soothing! I also washed ALL of the paneling and cabinets down stairs with Mr Clean with Febreeze... WOW what a difference that made! So clean and smelled so good!

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.
