I almost have a new functioning kitchen!
Why is this taking so long? Well, the truth of the matter is that we are slow. And there have many side trips while waiting for the counter tops to be put in place. I decontructed the dining room area and constructed the bathroom. And we are doing all the work ourselves – staining cabinets, etc.
So here is what we have so far:
Did you notice the pantry? Another side trip. And it is getting filled up already!
I even built myself a little bookcase for cookbooks. (Sorry, the picture is a little fuzzy – oops!)
And I got in a little creativity with my bathroom window which is decorated with Gallery Glass.
It’s almost like decorating a dollhouse, but bigger!

I am a terrible blogger. I admit it. So there.
My husband and I have been devoting all of our days to revamping the future home in some hope that we might get moved in at the end of the Summer. One goal for the move is to have a functioning kitchen.
So far we have taken the kitchen from this:
A functioning bathroom is also in the works. Sorry, no pictures yet.
My days have been filled with construction, but I want to acknowledge the passing of one of the guys in my life. RIP Oliver who lived to a ripe old age. In his prime, he was “in charge” and a complete rapscallion. He will be missed.

My piles of minis continue to grow smaller as I move more and more to the future house. What to do for this supposed minis blog? Printables!
One thing I have always loved about having a computer is having the ability to design my own printable/ activity pages, teaching aids, greeting cards, etc. These days I have fun with designing wallpapers, flooring, and wall art for my mini projects.
I already have some of my wallpapers available free. (See link in the sidebar.) So I decided to make a regular feature of a mini printable once a month (or maybe more often – we’ll see how it goes.)
This month I have some Cat Wall Art for you. There are four different color combinations on this page. (And, of course, you can always use your own favorite painting app to change colors.) Use this for your mini walls or print it on some fabric for a mini rug. Enjoy!
