Oh, hey!

So, I got a new computer at the very end of May.  My old one had served me well for many years of use and abuse so the blue screen of death was not a huge surprise.

And then, not 5 weeks later, the hard drive on the new computer crashed.  In fact, that last post up there took me about an hour to post, in 5 minute increments because that’s as long as the computer would stay on.

Of course we were out of town (making our annual pilgrimage to the biggest car show around to feed Macy’s addiction).


And then it took 3 days for someone to confirm that the hard drive was indeed dead.  And then it took 2 more days to get through to the general manager and persuade him that a replacement computer instead of 2-3 weeks for repairs was what was right.  And then another 1.5 hours at the store to actually make that happen.  That’s fun with 5 kids (because OF COURSE I had an extra one with me).

So, I’m back.

I emailed winners of the CAMEO, Lowe’s gift card, and Where Women Create magazine.  They’ve all responded and claimed their prizes.

In the mean time, I developed a little bit of an Instagram addiction.  If you’re on Instagram, look me up….“crapivemade”.

I (yes, I) built a headboard last week.  You’ll be hearing more about that soon.

There’s also some SERIOUS progress being made on the DIY Blogger house. I went over last night and took a bunch of pics.  The front door is TO DIE FOR.


So, what’s new with you?

How’s summer treating you?

Are you ready for 3 nights of football camp this week? Me either. Confused smile

Talk to you soon!
