every january, something goes crazy inside me. i have this insane need to create and nest.

you might have read about our new and improved creation station, in which we spend every waking minute.

well, our family room is complete. we are just waiting on the furniture to be delivered and it will officially be done!!!! here is a photo from the night before the carpet was to be laid.

our very own roller skating rink!

everyone but the "play it safe, i don't want to have surgery mamma" got in on that action.

and here it is with carpet, a play station, and a very happy 10 year old. :)

having this space finished has doubled the size of our little home. we were also able to move my lover's office out of our dining room and into the old art room. doing this has changed my life. no longer am i constantly having to keep the front rooms neat and tidy. THEY STAY THAT WAY!!!!
we have room to spread out and live. LIVE i tell you! we are so full of joy and thanksgiving. not a day goes by that i do not utter a prayer for the blessing we have received. i think the fact that it took us so long to finish makes it that much sweeter.

here are a few snapshots of our home.

i have also been on a crafting binge. i'll share more on those pretties later.
happy day to you!!
