Missing You... Bugaboo card

Happy Saturday!  In this post:

1)  Update on house constructions
2)  Adorable BUGABOO card
3)  New Challenge Blog Launch info and Candy info

Oh my gosh. We only have 3 more weekends after this weekend to get our house finished so we can move back into it! I'm excited it's so close, and hope we get everything done in time. My hubbub has done all the drywall, custom cabinet building, custom entertainment center, trey ceiling... I'm loving how it's turning out. We've had tons of help from our family and friends working every weekend with us and sweating in the heat with our AC being broken.

I just love the way my hubbub says... "What do you want?".... "How high do you want each shelf?"... "Do you want doors?"... I mean, how awesome is that?! I am so thankful he is spoiling me this much. He's done so much side work for other people and families over the past years, and honestly, I've been a little jealous thinking, "I want a custom kitchen too," or "I want some cool bookshelves too." And now it's my turn. Yeah!

He can't get to it until after we move back in, and will probably take a break at first to re-cooperate, but he has promised to build me custom cabinets and counter-top space in my craft room. YEAH!  How fun!!!

Here's a couple of pictures showing the custom entertainment center and pantry.

So excited!!

One more thing....

I also want to tell you about a new challenge blog that's launching Friday, September 7th.  It's called CUT IT UP CHALLENGES. Stacey (from Stacey's Creative Corner) and Kimberly (from Kimberly's Crafty Spot) are 2 friends that are getting it going. They will have a brand new challenge every Friday (the same schedule as my Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges), and all the challenges will need a DIE CUT + their current theme. To help get the word out about the new challenge blog, they are doing a little give-away right now, and the winner will be announced Sept. 7th on their blog along with the first challenge.

CUT IT UP Launch Candy
All the different ways to enter are in their blog post HERE.  You know I just LOVE me some challenges! I'm very excited about this and can't wait to get started on Sept 7th. So expect not only my PAUSE DREAM ENJOY CHALLENGES posts on Fridays, but one for CUT IT UP CHALLENGES too!

Thanks for coming by today! Smiles :) Janis
