I am still here....

We finally moved completely in ........Woosh. Still got tons of boxes to unpack. We had some major setbacks, but the good thing is we are finally moved in! I am totally excited! I am happy to report that I will have my VERY OWN SCRAPBOOK ROOM! I cannot wait to get it all up an running, but I learned from my dear friend Bonnie Rose, to take baby steps. My house is so big! It's big to me anyway, it's a lot bigger than my townhouse, that's for sure! LOL I gained 4 more rooms. A living room, a dining room, a utility room, and a full attic and let's not forget a huge yard and a two and a half car garage. We are truly blessed! I am so excited! Can you tell?? I took tons of pictures, but I want to give you the full affect of the Before and After. My kitchen has beautiful oak cabinets with oak pergo flooring, so I decided that my color scheme would be red, all of my appliances are going to be red, I already got red rugs, dishes, staineless steel and red garbage can, dish towels, decorative towels......I carried this color into my dining/scrapbook room only red, black and white, and also into my living room, which is red, cocoa brown, and mocha brown....... My Family room or Safari room, has leopard,zebra, giraffe, and cheetah prints..... tons of elephant, giraffe, and cheetah figurines....Not quite finished, to be honest I am a long way from where I need to be, but it's coming along. My most treausure room in my bathroom.....I chose lavendar, white, and grey, because all of my hardware is nickel/ my flooring and tile is a grayish white pattern, so it looks DIVINE! I go in there and just stare. Jaree's room is going to be gorgeous, we spent tons on just her room alone. She has white rattan furniture, her color schemes are fuschia, pink, lavendar, and purple. I can't wait to get it all finished! The boys are BOYS....they had me buy all kinds of black lights, stop lights, locker dressers, it's definitely a boys room, but it's very Nice, I wanted to do it my way, but the boys PROTESTED! lol My room is Lavendar and seafoam greens, mixed with a splash of Purple, my favorite color. I still have to get Jaree's room painted! Stay tuned, I hope to have everything done by the end of this month, or very early MARCH! I am giving myself a somewhat realistic deadline. I still do not have internet service, so I am just using the wireless on my laptop. I will have everything on the 12th.

I have to honestly say I missed you guys tremendously and I hope you guys did not forget about me. I wish you all well! I plan to start blogging atleast 3 times a week, but once I am done it's ON AN POPPIN' lol
