Projects

Another week gone already. I normally think of November as a rather blah month, but we've been so busy it has been flying by.

There have been several projects going on in the twomittens household. First of all we've decided to list our house again. Mr. Mittens has been hard at work finishing our basement. He did our bathroom in a matter of days and it looks fantastic. Now he has moved on to painting it all. We've used our basement as a play space for the kids, but it's sure going to look nice when it's done. For some one else to enjoy...
Another project along with that is putting up more photos and artwork on the walls. We have a lot of photos to choose from, which may be the problem. I have such a difficult time trying to decide what to put up.
As far as Christmas, I want to make stockings for our family this year. In the meantime I was involved with a project making 25 stockings for other families. That went well, so now I just have to finish ours.
Anyway...a few more things in the works and odds and ends around the house. I promise to post more interesting photos as they are completed. And more updates to come.

On the plus side, I got to get out of town for a couple of days on the weekend. It's crazy how something so simple as spending a few hours shopping with girlfriends is such a rare and precious time. Even though we talked about them and shopped for them, not actually having kids with us was such a treat!

One month 'til Christmas!!!

It all gives me hives right now.
I'm avoiding the season and the projects other than the finishing touches on knitting sweaters for the boys. But I have IDEAS...for a super easy advent calendar, so to speak...and need to decide what kind of tree we're having this year...it's kid friendly and not at all stylish these days...and the family Christmas photo, idea, but needs to be put into action....I think I'm STUCK. Procrastination has led to just being stopped in my tracks.

Shopping and girl-time...heavenly! So happy for you! Much deserved.

Okay I have to ask--every time I see your "Two Mittens" I wonder how you came up with that. Curious . . .
