Just a short post today. It has been very busy around here these days and so I haven't been doing much crafting. I have been reorganizing my craft space which once I am happy with it I will post a few pictures of it. Plus getting laundry caught up and put away. On the weekend though my Dad was very kind to come and hand our family's chandelier. Now I say family's because it was given to my Grandfather as a thank you for helping out a family during a difficult time. Then once it didn't fit into my grandparents home it was passed down to my mother, and now to me. I think it looks very elegant and am happy to have it hanging above my grandparents dinning room set once again. In my own family we have been telling lots of stories about my grandparents and the items we have now acquired from them and Rosie (my youngest) has started to take an interest in the stories and is thinking about the things she would like once they no longer fit into my house. I am thinking that could be a while my dearest daughter.
Anyhow on to the beautiful picture of my new chandelier..........
So thanks so much for the great job done Dad! Excuse me for going off on a proud daughter moment but there has never been a job around my house that he hasn't been willing to help me out with, and that is without complaint about the job at hand. Of course he has other complaints about my house but that is another post, lol. We went to the hardware store and got what we needed (after asking an associate for help) and headed home and he went straight to work. He knew what to do! Dad even was able to find a solution to what we thought was going to include another trip to the hardware store for a new piece. I know he doesn't read my blog but I know that my Mum does and will pass along the praise I am giving him for a job well done. Thanks Dad I love you!! So this card is what I am sending him as well as a thank you because he doesn't read my blog, so shh! Mum don't tell him about the card, lol. I used my new smiley card download on my gypsy. The cardstock is recollections from Michaels, the googlie eyes are from the dollar store, stickles for the lips, swiss dots embossing folder and the background paper was also embossed with a cuttlebug folder but not sure the name (oops), cuttlebug, and of course my gypsy and cricut. The adhesive I used was mono adhesive the liquid type cause of the embossing as well as some pop dots from the dollar store. Hope you enjoy and have a Wicked Wednesday it is all down hill the weekend now!!
