What I've been up to...

I haven't fallen off the face of blogland. Life had the nerve to get in the way! :)
This little guy has been really sick since last Friday. His fever finally broke today, so I am hoping we are on the upswing. He is not a fun sick kid. Lots of crying, whining and holding. The good part is the cuddling. He is only cuddly when sick, so I'll take what I can get! :)
This is one of my favorite finds lately! I got this at a yard sale for two bucks! It is kind of funky, but so am I. The lady told me they got it when they were stationed in Japan and that it just didn't go with their decor anymore. I came home and took down my plain framed mirror and smile every time I pass it!
I haven't cleaned it yet (and you can tell in these pictures) but I love the details!
There is a small crack in the mirror (you can see it to the right of the flash), but I think it just adds to the charm. I am so glad I didn't pass this up! I almost did b/c it was tucked up under the table and wasn't looking spectacular!

In addition to tending to my sick little guy this week, I have been busy getting caught up on orders for my business. My partner and I have a great system down. She cuts the wood, paints and distresses it. I do all the vinyl work and final finish then deliver the goods.
We are vendors in 2 local stores and here are a few of the orders we had due this week:

This is one of the favorites for scrapbook rooms!
Grandparents boards are a twist on the family boards. This is a new design and is already quite popular. I am thinking my inlaws will be getting one for Christmas

This is another grandparents board.

This is the traditional board that inspired the grandparents board.

And for fun, a little pink sign! I did an undercoating of chocolate brown paint, and where I sanded the brown comes through. I don't think you can really see it in the picture, but it looks neat!
That is just a sampling of what we have been up to this week! I am looking forward to getting to play in the garage tomorrow! I have a dresser transformation that I can not wait to finish up and get posted! Also a 5 dollar side table! I need to get a basket for it tomorrow! I'll be back Saturday evening or Sunday with some real project posts!
