I'm Back!

Greetings all! I haven't blogged or stamped in a while, but it was fun to sit down and try the Who's Got Mojo Monday Challenge once again. I had quite a time finding something to work, but finally settled on this one. I am not sure my main image is quite as big as the sketch Julie gave us, but hopefully it will pass.
Here is the sketch we were to use. I used my stamped the background with close to cocoa and the Paisley stamp on whisper white cardstock. I stamped a groovy guava strip with the linen background stamp. I used my aquapainter and watercolor paper to color in the main image. This color combo came from the stampin' up catalog. For some reason it reminds me of neapolitan ice cream. It makes me hungry!
I have been very much preoccupied with our decorating project. It is really coming together nicely. The window treatments went up yesterday and they really look good. I can't believe how much difference some white curtains can make. We are feeling like it was worth the long wait. Now we are waiting our settee to come back as they had to take it back and cut down the legs. But, it will soon be done and things will look pretty put together. I am now working on getting the odds and ends like barstools and rugs, etc. taken care of.

I have also, as I mentioned in my earlier post, been going to Minneapolis for my physical therapy treatments for my bladder pain and I think (hate to even say it out loud) that they are starting to give me some relief. The therapist told me it can take a month to start to see if it is helping. I had about three really good days in a row and she said that is how it will start happening. So, it is making the hassle of going to the cities during rush hour worth it.

Well, so long for now!!!! Have a great week!!!
