Just Stuff

Wow! This post is severely overdue! I have definitely been keeping myself busy over here at the Dykast home and blogging is the last thing I have been thinking about! But my busyness has been fun!

For some reason, I’m stoked about decorating for Christmas this year. For the past couple of years I haven’t done much in the way of decorating because we have been leaving and spending the holidays in Oregon with our families. Well, this year we are leaving as well and yet, I can’t wait to decorate! I have been seeing some fun projects online and my fingers and brain have been in going on overdrive trying to get some of them done. I don’t have any of these captured to share with you yet but I will take pictures once they are completed.

The other thing that has been occupying my time is more house related projects. Lately I have been painting stuff and rearranging the house. It’s just time for a change! Earlier this week I painted two cabinets in our house and I can’t wait to share those later too. One of them, Jason basically overhauled the cabinet and made it so much better. And once again, no pictures yet. I still need to put things in the cabinet so it looks finished and then I will take pictures!

But I do have SOME pictures to share with you today. Here are some scrapbook pages that I completed a few weeks ago:

tug o war
These are all from when I was visiting Oregon in July. I scanned all of these in so you can see the line where I pieced them together in photoshop!

Also, an update on our outside overhaul. We have slowly been moving forward and are almost done for now. We still have to finish hanging the shutters and then I will take pictures and post. I never did get the chance to spruce up the brick, the weather has turned cooler now so I will have to wait until next year. So many things to do… Am I the only one that feels that way?!
