a few things

a few things to share today.

my friends got me this card a few weeks ago when i was feeling down.
really, it didn’t have anything to do with what was going on, but was cute nonetheless.

front: “Life can suck, I (we) know. Let’s get coffee sometime and talk about it.”
back: “Or we could get a bottle of wine and plot our revenge.”

also, i put my $.99 ikea metal strip “thing” on my wall at work. it weighs like .0005 lbs, so i figured i could put it up on the walls at work with sticky-putty, and not put any nails in it.

now i’m looking for some fun new magnets to use on the strip! kt directed me to K&J Magnetics, where i found these cute things:

fun find!

how cool is this? if you are in need of some quick power for any type of electronic gadget (MP3 player, cell phone…and i supposed portable cd or cassette player if you were to still use those), you can use this gadget, HYmini wind charger, to give you that extra juice. The HYmini uses wind and solar power to recharge any one of your many gadgets!

fun and not a completely out-of-price range (i’ve read it’s around $80) environmentally friendly gadget!

last weekend of October’s trip to Pittsburgh to visit friends & Ikea was a success. i was able to get the two dressers i’ve been dying to get, as well as more storage boxes, shelves, and some miscellaneous accessories/items. “Operation: Declutter” is pretty much completed, though i have not been able to make the bulletin board of red fabric samples just yet.

anyway, here is an updated picture on the room:


also, today was our SECOND TO LAST SUNDAY IN OUR EXISTING CHURCH BUILDING. i mean, i KNEW that we were going to have our first services there the weekend of November 17 & 18 but i didnt even realize how soon it was coming up. it was pretty cool seeing the final episode of the relocation update on the screen – seeing the carpet put in, all the acoustical clouds in the sanctuary…it was just amazing. during communion my dad leaned over to me and said “last communion in this building”. i was just amazed, and it brought tears to my eyes. i have gone to Grace all of my life, in this single building, and soon it will be somewhere entirely and amazingly different. i’m so excited! next week we will be seeing the finished product! some of the furniture will be coming in this week for the offices, and the rest next week! ahhhh! it’s so crazy.

also, our children’s church wing was pretty much completely torn down. that was pretty crazy as well. we had a good turn out of kids, and when we get into the new building and get the new set, it’s going to be amazing!!!

Phase 1 began today, September 30, 2007. i have not yet gotten to make the dresser purchases, but i was able to take apart my other desk and put together the cubes. i can’t believe how much stuff i have, and how much i fit in the new “cubes”! the original plan i had for the room i didnt like at ALL when i first moved the furniture, so it ended up a little different.  i also moved a few other things around, which i wasn’t planning on doing at first. i’m happy with the way things are after phase 1. next steps: memo-samples bulletin board, shelves from ikea & magazine boxes, maybe some other “decorative” boxes for storage on shelves/in cubes, and dressers. oh and i couldnt find the mirror i was looking for today at WalMart, so that was pretty disappointing and annoying!

anyway, here’s some views of the “newer” room at the moment:

while sifting through some memo samples we had ordered for a client, i came up with an idea to use a bunch of different fabrics to make a colorful and inexpensive bulletin board! i’m so excited about this idea, though i don’t know just yet how it’s going to come together. first step: order a bunch of similar color memo samples. memos are great because they are about 8″ squares of a specific textile, and they are FREE! my thoughts are to sew them together almost like a quilt, in maybe 4″ or 5″ squares, then attach them to ether some cork, thick cardboard, or an inexpensive bulletin board. i could probably even use foam board. i’m also envisioning the fabric to wrap right around whatever it is mounted on, so no frame. i’ll have to request the assistance of my home-ec mother for the sewing part, but i think this will be a very cool look.

here are some of the fabrics i’ve ordered:
