I bet ya'll are wondering where in the world I have been. Not blogging, right?!? Right. I have been re-doing my stamping space. It will be done a little at a time. My son drew up plans for a custom made cabinet to house my new style punches, rollers, paper, supplies, Big Shot, Circle Scissor Plus and dies. That cabinet was built and installed about two weeks ago.
Two weekends ago, my son Michael and his wife, Tracey, came down to Victoria from Houston to make the counter top for this cabinet. It is sort of an experimental counter top. You see, it is going to be a Cobalt Blue concrete countertop. It ended up to be a TOTAL FAMILY AFFAIR. Here are some photos of us on the day we poured the counter top.
This past weekend, while I was with my daughter in Chicago, IL and Iowa visiting family, Michael and Tracey were back and broke the form work away and sanded the top. After sanding, a "slurry" mix was applied. This will have to be sanded and perhaps more applied until, finally, a sealer will be put on and buffed to a shine. I will post the finished product as soon as it is finished. I am SO EXCITED about this!! Thanks for being patient with me, not blogging cards for a week or more. Will try to get something posted later this week.
