Hot Tub Steps

Good morning my sunshiney friends!

Yes, spell check is unhappy with my adjective, but I don’t care – I am rebelling against proper English and creating my own word of the day and today it is “Sunshiney”!  (because you bring light to my life)

I’m pretty excited about today’s project for a few reasons;

  1. It was part of my no-spend July challenge and I managed to build it for almost nothing

Stained glass window panels

Take a couple of panels of stained glass, add a cedar frame and create art for your windows! 

Hey strangers!

Where have you been?!  It’s been so long since I’ve touched base with you – are you ignoring me?
