On the Mend, plus a Sneak Peek

Hello! Hope you all are doing well. We're on the mend around here, after suffering through a perfectly awful trifecta of horrible cold, teething pains, and tummy troubles. Poor little Griffin made it through the weekend by putting his head down on the floor and crying. A lot. It might just be the saddest sight in the World. Anyway, it all seems to be settling down, and while he's not quite back to his usual cheery self, he is definitely smiling and playing a lot more. Even if he does sound like a constantly snoring pug (the good part is that he can't sneak around at all right now!)
I know I promised some after shots, but for some reason they didn't download off the camera. But I do have an after shot of the table that I salvaged in pick-up week. Remove ugly plywood, add some gorgeous slabs, and Voila! It's a perfect phone table for our brand new dining room.

We had many volunteers (maybe not eager, but certainly willing) over the Mother's Day weekend in the form of two sets of parents (that's eight extra hands - thanks guys!) Furniture, books, craft supplies, rugs, and more, were moving all over the place. And in the end, we now have two extra usable rooms, instead of storage spaces. Add in the deck, and it feels like a whole new house.

And amongst all the craziness, I snuck in some time to get into the shop and pull together a new piece...

Which I totally love! Thanks again to Deborah and all the faithful Kickcan and Conkers readers for providing me with so much encouragement! Hopefully I will get some pieces into our Etsy shop soon. But for now, I hope you enjoy the Sneak Peek :)

May your day be filled with smiles and snuggles and snacks (three of my favourite things.)
