Cute cake...



"Story in a Box" by me
for my friend Veronica.
From hat boxes to a
yarn covered cake,
it had little surprises inside for
her birthday.
She makes amazing cakes,
cupcakes, sweets...
so this was perfect for her.

This & the kitchen
was an all weekend project.
It's so much better
than the yellow.
Better pics of the
changes coming soon.

Display Windows...

Brandi & I did at work.
I love the one with the maps,
by far my favorite I think
because it feels like my style.
I so want to make things out
of maps now, it's not even funny...

Chapter 2-Determination & Exploration...

...to make a better life for myself.
It's going to take a lot of hard work,
but it's time to focus on being happy.

& am just trying to have a
great time with life right now!
Looking forward to Chapter 3-
New & Improved!
Here are some before pics of the
inside of the house, the living conditions
aren't very pleasant right now,
but soon it will be great, a work in progress...

Goodbye field...

...we spent many hours with you.
thank you for giving us a place to
run, smell, chase, play & be crazy.
we have other fields to conquer now,
but we'll always remember you.

...into a cute little '70's house.
I'll post before pics of the inside soon.
I can't wait to start fixing it up.
The other pics are of the park
across the street, the puppies will be happy.
