One huge accomplishment I finally my taxes so another Tax season has come and gone, well almost gone but the 17th is just around the corner so I did cut it a bit close this year.
I admit I procrasinated a bit on my taxes this year, but it was a strange year of employment (and some 'un'employment) for me, and in the end I had 4 W2's to enter! Yes, I said FOUR! But I'm happy to report, that just a couple of weeks ago, I was hired as permanent employee once again. I've been contracting since last summer, and athough at least I was working, I like being apart of team as a regular employee again, including the benefits, paid time off and all the other perks! The added bonus for me also is my new company is only 2.2 miles from my home! And as gas prices are on the rise, that is also a terrific perk.
Speaking of Home, let me get to the fun project I want to share today. It's my 3d Vintage House and not only could I decorate the outside,(I love the lampost!) but also the inside, as this one opens allowing you to weld your interior design skills too.
I used the Sweet Chips Chipboard house from Crafty Secrets.
This is is all cut and ready for you to cover and make your own.
Here's another view form the side- I love all the extra details and pieces that were provided. I used all of my own paper, and lace to insert for a peek of curtain coming out of the windows and doors. I was able to pick out prints of interest for the windows from vintage prints I had.
So the as the roof comes off it opens to reveal the entire inside!
here are some inside shots
In this one take a look at the mirror- I put a tiny picture of my Mom as a little girl to look like she is reflected in the mirror.
I love the dress form and fancy bird cage holding some flowers while the bird flies free!
Well that's it for me today- be sure to stop by as I will be participating with the rest of the DT at the Rubber Cafe'and Really Reasonable Ribbon in a blog hop! It starts on Friday the 13th and runs for the week, so mark your calendars and meet me here, at The Rubber Cafe' blog where it all begins!
