New Upcycle Ideas 654
Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific
I generally pride myself on trying new things, however this past week was a whole other spectrum of that! My son and I both ultimately came down with the big C, so there’s been lots of guilt-free rest and Netflix. Until the power went out. That was fun…
Regardless, it’s now been a week and I can still taste coffee, and do most things I use to, aside from leaving the house of course. My son commented, “This is the best week of my life!” Pure eating, gaming, TV and no appointments seem to have worked nicely within his new and improved rich and famous lifestyle. I’m just super grateful it stayed mild and we made it to the other side.
In other news, all the new Christmas stencils got dropped off at my front door just today, so I consider that perfect timing to the hilt! I have two projects already in draft mode which got put on hold, and now I can really go full tilt with the rest! Play time!
So enough about me… let’s check out some pretty outstanding features from last week’s party I know you won’t want to miss!
