The ROOM!!

Charlie left thursday at noon...and thats when I started to tackle this job...I repainted the office/guest room and it took me until he came back home at 7:30am sunday....I love it...I was in such a hurry to get the room stripped and get started I forgot to take before pictures, but trust me it was ugly, blue and tan walls junk piled in there..I tried to create an elvis rat pack themed room but it never worked....This works, Charlie was thrilled and just loves the room!!!
I used our vinyl cutter to make all the quotes and graphics...I will be making some to sell on etsy as that is really popular right now, email me if you are interested in having any made for your own home!

This is what you see as you walk in the room.

This is the first wall, it has charlie's dad's racing photos all black and white and an old photo of ascot park in gardena where charlie started racing.

This is the desk and it has a motivational photo of Ethan in his dads race says "life is tough, wear a helmet".

This is the door that leads to the closet and it has a cat door inside that leads out to toby's litter box that is outside in a kennel. No smell in the house that way!
This is the wall that has Charlie's race photos, and his rookie of the year photo! I added the star because he is my shining star!
This is the last wall, it is not completed, I will add the vinyl saying "our boys and their toys" and it will have Joe racing and Travis derbying photos.
Next room is my craft room, then my bedroom, then we will remodel the will take about 2 years to finish it all.

I love my new computer!!!!!

Ok this is why I really needed a new computer, I wanted to burn DVD's!! Every year since (Ethan 4 1/2 year old grandson) was born I have taken the best photos of each year and put them on a dvd with music, but alas, my big old desktop computer was hampering my efforts, so with my new laptop I can burn dvds and it has windows movie maker, wow this thing is fun and so quick and easy, plus it has tons of cool effects, watch and listen closely to Ethans 2007 video. The dvd version we have plays much clearer on the dvd player hooked to the tv but I learned to upload to youtube so family and friends can view the fun too!! Enjoy!!!

Friday night...

Dinner at the Olive Garden and then we went to see the movie Bedtime Stories with Adam Sandler, It was a cute movie. He is always the same in every movie, the bumbling idiot that can't get the girl, ugh, but the story made up for his acting. Wow they really could have done something spectacular with that story line!!

I did see a preview of a movie I am very interested in...InkHeart..can't wait for that one!
Here is a preveiw of InkHeart:
