"My skin is kind of sort of brownish pinkish yellowish white.
My eyes are greyish blueish green, but I'm told they look orange in the night.
My hair is reddish blondish brown, but it's silver when it's wet,
And all the colors I am inside have not been invented yet."
-Shel Silverstein

Hurry up, Summer....

Well, it's no surprise that it's been FOREVER since I blogged... Geez. I should be ashamed. I guess between a full time job, boyfriend, and (collectively) 5 kids I have stayed pretty busy. It's been lots of fun, though. I just haven't crafted much. Last weekend, however, the bf and I got crackin' on a super fun spring/summer project. Of course, it was 30 degrees out. Go figure... Will winter ever end? Really. Anyway, we used plans you can find at http://www.ana-white.com/ (go Ana!! She used to do the knock off wood blog and now has that page) to start making the outdoor sectional. So far we made one section. :) Here are the fabulous photos I took.

The handsome bf cutting: (I bet my dad is glad to have someone do my wood cutting besides him!)

All cut and ready to go....
Finished product:
Now I just need to figure out fabric for the cushions. Well, and we need to make like 6 more sections. :)

We also got another member of the family: Little Rico. His is part Maltese and part Yorkie (Morkie). Cute as all get out. Weighing in at a whopping 5 lbs!

Well, I think that's all I have for now. I'm sure I'll be back. In like July of course. ;)
