Butterfly Season

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

The work for the church craft show is coming along. Last weekend was spent making plywood signs to put in people’s yards for advertising. The committee decided to use a butterfly symbol for the show, so we had 20 yellow butterflies draped against the fence alongside the driveway this weekend. The stencils for the lettering were created in such a way that we painted the right wing with one stencil and the left wing with the other. With wording on both sides, that meant a total of four painting sessions. The last one is going to be tomorrow morning. All that will be left at that point is trimming the stakes for putting them in the ground. Dave’s worn himself out this past week trying to get everything done, so I’m not certain when that’s going to be finished, although he’s stated he’s going to try to get it done tomorrow afternoon. They look absolutely awesome!

Progress…and not so much progress

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

The prep work for the church’s first ever craft show is going well. We are basically at our pre-set limit of 50 booths, give or take a couple. It was interesting to see what sorts of vendors we did/didn’t actually have apply to the show.

In the meantime, the work on the boys’ bathroom is essentially complete. The one item that’s left is replacing the light fixtures in the bath, but we’re doing it ourselves so there’s a little less pressure timewise on that aspect. We’re still attempting to find the fixtures we want. In the meantime, the work grew from just replacing the bathroom floor to replacing the floor, removing all the wallpaper, retexturing the walls, painting the bathroom, two bedrooms, and down the hallway upstairs.

All of that additional work required pulling all the toys/clothes/stuff off the furniture and either jamming it in the closets or stuffing it in boxes. The boxes are currently residing on the floor in the living room downstairs, in our bedroom, and out in the garage. The extra furniture is still sitting in the walk up portion of the attic upstairs.

I’m personally counting it as a victory that the nine foot long pinewood derby track case was finally removed from the floor in the dining room where it’s been sitting for the past three years. The track is is its new slightly shorter, slightly lighter (but still heavy) eight foot long case, which was taken to the Cub Scout Pack storage unit after the district pinewood derby last weekend.

Next on the agenda(s) are making and painting plywood signs for the craft show to put in people’s yards for advertising, moving the furniture back out of the attic, unpacking all the boxes of boys toys and books, and making paint/floor/tile selections for the downstairs bathroom, which is currently next on the repair list.
