Weekend projects

Ughh! I hate being sick. Not that it matters, but I haven't been sick in a really long time. So, I'll just deal. One box of Kleenex and a bottle of hand sanitizer at a time.

We, well mostly Tim, spent Saturday afternoon rearranging the plumbing in our basement. The water was shut off from 1:oo to 8:00pm. We held our breath and crossed our fingers as we turned the water valve back on...no leaks! We did, however, underestimate the amount of water that flowed through our water softener...by about 20 gallons. Yes, 25 gallons of water quickly overflowed the 5 gallon bucket it was supposed to fill and the rest went on the floor. Luckily it hasn't been carpeted yet so the shop vac cleaned it up and nothing was ruined.

While Tim was plumbing I worked on a few projects. I made these jars for my sister to give her co-workers for Valentine's Day. I think she's going to fill them with M&M's.

I also decorated this box for a project I'm doing at Big Picture Scrapbooking. The project is called Happy New You. It's about creating projects to keep your theme word in the forefront of your mind.
