Cabin in the Woods

My husband and I spent the week working on the new cabin. Much to my delight the place is looking more like a small log house than a "hunting camp". DH is doing a fantastic job on it and already has bigger plans in the works. What was originally a super small bedroom with room for just a bunk bed and small dresser (for hunters or grandkids) is now roughed in for a bathroom. Along with that he plans on adding a bigger bedroom off the side of the cabin.

What we did this week was put hardwood flooring in the kitchen, tile the back splash and counter top, move the pile of junk wood from a torn down old woodshed, paint the kitchen and livingroom, make coat racks, hang shelves in the 2 main bedrooms, and hook up the kitchen sink drain. We also brought the small couch up with us. I hope to get some more pictures of the inside up soon.

Our son moved the shower to the porch of the old small cabin that will be a sauna someday. We were taking showers out the back door last time but he and his wife were there with another couple and decided to move it for more privacy. It's kind-of cute the way he did it, Petticoat Junction style,. That's DH taking a shower, I took the picture from the driveway. We see a couple cars or atv's go by when we're in it but I doubt they can see us, lol.

Mystery Giveaway!

I decided to do an extra giveaway! I'm a few sales away from hitting the 1,000 mark so I'm going to make the person who purchases and pays for the 1,000th item a mystery gift! And they get to request what colors they want for their gift. The item will about a $20-$25 value, choices are heart, shell, rose, goddess, or a set of 4-5 lentil or nugget beads.

I'm also going to extend my Christmas in July sale until the 20th of July. I'll be spending time with my parents when the sale is suppose to end so I'm extending it till I get back. Mom plays the lap dulcimer and we've gone to the ODPC Funfest together for the last 13 yrs. My folks are in their 80's now and I enjoy the week we spend together more each year. I'll be taking a torch, kiln and oxygen concentrator with me so I can make beads while hanging around the campsite. It's just me and Sadie (my dog) in our little 5th wheel, the rest of the family stays home.

The last day I can ship before leaving is the morning of Monday, the 13th. I'll catch up on the 20th. Not sure if the local library has the net, I forgot to call them today and find out. If so I'll be able to check in and maybe blog a bit.

Congrats Jan T,. You've Won

The winner of July's Drawing is Jan T. of Hawaii. Congrats Jan!
She was quite surprised she had won since she didn't remember entering. However, as a long time subscriber to my newsletter "Glassbits" she was in the drawing automatically. To top it off she says it is the first time she has ever one anything! I love it!

And just because we all love eye candy here's a picture of some recent work. This one's going in the etsy shop soon.
