Dig, set, pour, repeat. A weeklong project is now coming to an end! Hooray!!! We spent many an afternoon cutting down dozens of teeny "trees" that had grown through and completely mangled the old fence. My husband and our neighbor erected this one in it's place. Now the clean-up crew is needed. (I'm the sole member of the clean-up crew.) That's lots of raking folks. Grass seed needs to be laid. Lumber stacked away...
I've also spent the better part of my free time this week looking to locate flooring. We put Pergo in our living room and hallway over the winter (it's indestructible by-the-way) and now we want to put it in all the bedrooms...too bad I picked a variety that has since been discontinued...(kicking myself) So now I'm on the hunt for a close match...uggh.....
So, not much new art to report, because I've been distracted with my domestic duties as of late. Don't forget, there are 2 days left in my etsy shop sale! Buy one print, get one free through Friday!

Bookmark the site if you're local and want to keep up with what's happening in the Detroit crafting community. Today's Etsy faves are all fellow Michiganders! Woo Hoo! :)

I found this great recipe for fish tacos while reading this months Domino magazine. I made the entire spread for dinner last night, watermelon margaritas included. It was delish! You don't have to subscribe to the magazine to get the recipe...you can find it all right here. We used the recommended mahi mahi, but skipped the homemade tortillas for more convenient store bought ones. The corn salad is awesome and the margaritas are soooo refreshing!
