I’ve been busy, what can I say?  The blog is neglected (I do have a FB page – Handmade By KellyBee if you want to pop by) but I’ve been doing crafty things – mostly on the weekends.

In addition to crafting, there’s been the usual round of summer visitors and home projects such as repainting our shutters and front door.  We have a bit of work to do on the front steps and then I’ll try to remember to share a before and after.  We have a white house so I was very surprised at what a change the new shutter colour made.

Some July projects:

As you can see, cards have not been the main focus lately.  I’m really enjoying using my Silhouette Cameo to create projects and I’ve also been dabbling with some chalk paints lately…here’s the new toys:

It’s been very hot and humid in St. John’s – high 20’s most days which is not normal for this area of Canada.  It’s usually a bit cooler (low 20’s, high teens – I can’t translate to Fahrenheit but I’m guessing mid-to-low 70’s and right now it’s high 70’s to low 80’s.  Might not sound that hot to you but if you’re not used to it, it can feel pretty uncomfortable.)

My dad has been visiting from Ontario the last few weeks (he goes back next week) and my BFF has also been visiting from BC so I’ve had more social activities than usual.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  I must go see what we’ll be making for supper this beautiful evening.
