I'm home! Christmas and New Years were so fun! I am blessed to have married into a wonderful family and I love spending time with them.

I seem to have this weird fetish. Everytime I visit my inlaws I feel compelled to redo their bathrooms. In 96 I rewallpapered the guest bath in green stripes, and tried my hand at cutting matts and picture framing (a disaster, but I've gotten better) and picked out acsessories and a border. In 98 I stencilled the downstairs bath and appliqued towels (This one has been subsequently redone, exquisitly, by my uber talented brother in law). In 99 I helped find wallpaper for the master (they went with something else that time but it looks great) :D. This year we are back to the guest bath again. They replaced the tub toilet, flooring and tile and I picked paint, vanity, mirror, faucet, lighting and some acessories. Richard (BIL) had already laid the tile, Mom and I painted and Eric installed the faucet, vanity and lighting. I loved doing it but I didn't have any time for crafting. So tonight I get to spend working on DT projects and class samples. (I actually can't wait, after a week away, I really miss my scissors and glue).

The first pic is my FIL "hiding" in the newly papered bath in his christmas pageant costume (in 1996). The second is what we did last week.
