Cool Collage!

So, normally I get nervous hanging things that need to be centered and measured and spaced out evenly, BUT today, I was feeling a little anxious and decided..."I can do this!" I found this cute letter "B" for "Blocker" yesterday at Kohl's (a whooping$6.49!!)and thought it would be a great idea to make a collage of the boys beach pictures that we took last summer! Here is the finished product! I pat myself on the back, it really wasn't as hard as I was making it out to be! On to the next thing....

It's almost FINISHED!!!!!

Well, last week they started on our basement! Mike, the carpenter (and friend of our family) came last week to finish framing and getting the basement ready for the drywaller's to come on Monday! The material company came yesterday, dropped off all the drywall material and today "they" came...."they" meaning the massive crew of drywallers arrived at 10:30am and by 1:30 pm we actually had walls and a ceiling! Man, these guys work FAST!!!! I will post some before/after pics! I wish I had more pics of the unfinished part but I only have 2, you'll get the idea ;)We can't wait to see the finished product!!!!!!!

This is the bar area...will have a bar with tile and flat screen tv right on the wall!
