The finished rooms

At long last I can share the finished results of our addition, including the boys' rooms! Technically there are fiddly bits to tinker with yet, like staining the french doors and painting some of the trim...but I will get that done a bit at a time.

New charms

Another charm swap propelled me to give something new a shot. I have not worked with polymer clay too much, so this was a challenge, especially working wrists have been particularly troublesome lately...but I made some Kwan Yin beads. At least, that is what the face said to me...I thought of Kwan Yin as I made them. She is the godess of compassions; her name means "she who hears the cries of the world."

Home Improvement

I have been focused on our house these many weeks, as we are putting on an addition. It is near completion at last so I thought I would share some pics of the new upstairs room, and the murals I did on the walls of the boys' rooms downstairs!

Aside from Overwhlemed, Way Behind, and Scattered, here are are other interpretations as to

***What Nici Means*** as presented by a Blogthings Quiz

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals. (Ok, how did they know that?)

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start. (This thing is eerily accurate...)

You are very open. You communicate well, and you connect with other people easily.You are a naturally creative person. Ideas just flow from your mind.A true chameleon, you are many things at different points in your life. You are very adaptable. (Consider me spooked. Everything said here is dead on. Freaky!)

How about you?
