Renovation Decorating, and Organization to do list Part 1

There are so many things I want to do around the house and since summer is starting to wind down I thought I would start by making a list.  Some of these will only take an hour to do and some will require a budget to complete but having them all in one place will help me accomplish them.

fun pics from convention

Once again life comes before blog posts.  It's been so nice here that we've spent every minute we can outside and I've been trying to get work done  outside while the weather is good.

Here's my final post on the CTMH convention, just a few pictures of some of my favorite people.



 
 
 
A couple of pics of Brenda, Joann and I in Magic Kingdom and Epcot, with a little help from the Disney Photopass.  If you ever plan a trip to Disney I think the Photopass is well worth the cost.

What is happening at CTMH

Sorry it has taken so long for me to post about all the great new things in the new Fall-Winter idea book.  I really haven't stopped since I got home.
