Bathrooms

As my life is starting to return to normal after the hectic holidays, I have 2 seconds to myself to write. The bear and I went back to my parents' house for Christmas and such. It didn't go as planned (shocker), but I think I handled it all pretty well.

My parents are getting older. Yes, I understand that tends to happen. However, they are not aging gracefully to say the least. The two of them are falling apart. I had hoped to help them out some - in spirits and physically - while we were in IL.

4 days before we had to leave to drive back home, I decided to paint my old bathroom. It's the extra bathroom upstairs that was redone for my 13th birthday. It was cool then, but wall paper in a bathroom is not a good idea. It is a very bad idea when you have a teenage girl who loved long showers, and it's been 11 years.

I knew it would be a lot of work to take down the mirror, strip the wallpaper, paint and get it all hung up again in 3 days. I watch HGTV though. I knew all the tricks to stripping wallpaper.

WAY more work than I thought it would be, but I loved it. It was nice to see something transformed. The quick (relatively) results were good for me. Everything here is focused on 6 months so a change in less than a week was refreshing. It's not a professional job, but trust me it's better than the 11 year old peeling wallpaper.

I also think well in the bathroom. I only worked on it while The Bear was sleeping so I was able to have time just for me. Yes, I was busy. It was therapeutic though. I feel better coming home.

Now I just wait for homecoming.

I wouldn't mind doing a header for you at all!

You can either purchase a kit from a site (I like these):
http://store.scrapbook-elements.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=55
http://www.funkyplaygrounddesigns.com/store/home.php

and then send me the link to make your header.

Or, you can choose a free kit from here:

Let me know what kit you choose and what you have in mind.

PS- Good job with the bathroom!
