demolition and quilts

It has been busy busy here at the Scissors house:) This whole week was spent working at VBS in the arts and craft class :)  It was a total blast.  I even met some amazing people who I know were brought into my life as a huge blessing.  
We are currently getting ready to renovate our bathroom and kitchen here at the condo.  These are both rooms that have not been updated at all since this place was built 14 years ago.  We are re-tiling and, and installing new bathroom cabinets, tile work, toilet, and storage in the bathroom this week!!  We have been saving for like 2 years and we are super excited to be doing it ourselves (with loads of help and guidance from the best aunt and uncle around).
Today, has been super fun because I have been busting tiles out and pulling of baseboards and ripping out cabinets....so fun!! Here are some peeks at my demo progress :)

I told myself that I have to take a lot of pics to document the progress because I totally forgot to take pictures years ago when we installed hard wood floor throughout the house.  That was another amazing process and I have no pics to document it :(
Yesterday, I worked on cleaning out all of the cabinets and organizing all of the supplies needed for those projects.  I supplemented my time in between with working on the custom quilt I am working on for Lindsay!!  I was super excited to finish the quilt top and I must say, it looks so lovely :)  Lindsay did a super job choosing the fabrics for the quilt.  What do you think?

adore!!  I also sewed some fabric on the front of my journal for the upcoming journal class that I am teaching which starts TOMORROW.  I seriously can not wait!!  Ok, I need to get back to busting some tile.  Have a wonderful Sunday friends.  Mad Men is back tonight!!! eeeeek!
