deep cleaning, fans, and layout! (not necessarily in that order!)

I loved the pictures for this layout!  I was so excited that this paper just fit right along with the theme, a field trip to the AZ science center.  I was borrowing a 50mm lens and felt certain that I could get some great shots in this VERY dark unphoto friendly place and I did!
these shots were not posed in anyway, meaning I didn't say do this or that.  I just had the camera focused on my subjects and got great results!  Love the miscellany from October Afternoon included in the Blast off kit!  this so far this year is my favorite, I made 5 layouts and a card and still have enough paper to make more! :)  I used the cork stars in the kit to trace and cut out these stars....

so today was the day....the day to clean the boy's bathroom...DISGUSTING....toothpaste, dirty floor, mirrors, I'll stop so I won't give you nightmares.  I avoid this bathroom like the plague, today though I couldn't stand it anymore!  It's now beautiful towel holder is back up on the wall. I've done a walk through with the boys showing them how it would look after they "clean it" it will probably last a day...

ceiling fans, this is sort of long story. but we had fans in three areas upstairs they are all different, one doesn't really work.  2 of our bedrooms upstairs needed them, so the kids and I went and picked four fans out last week. DH with my assistance (I only assembled the blades...) got the last two up today--wonderful!  The man at Lowe's tried to tell me it didn't really matter what I put up on the ceiling no one looks.  Ummm, DUDE!  i do and it matters to me!  I want to replace the one in my bedroom too, but it'll have to wait it's working and I haven't found just the right one anyway... I feel complete....ALMOST...but seriously I feel better and my kids who now have founds are proud to share with whoever will listen. :)

Thanks for the Saturday visit--hope you have a WONDERFUL day!

Awesome layout! I love the stitched stars. I completely agree with you--the look of the ceiling fan totally matters. We still have one in our bedroom from the previous owners and I detest it. The blades look like big palm tree fronds and I just think it is ugly. But alas it is the best working fan in the house so here I sit with my ugly fan lol.
