New Kitchen

This weekend was a very productive weekend for me. We're finally getting new kitchen cabinets! Hubby had waited for 9 years for this. :) Through out the whole week, I cleaned out the old kitchen cabinets and we get rid of a lot of stuff.  It was quite liberating.  

And, our old kitchen cabinets didn't go to waste either. One of our vendor took it to use at his place. Love it when things get recycle and go to good use.

We pretty much been working on beautifying the house since we got together. There's certain satisfaction to see the house coming together and getting better with each project we completed. And, lucky me that hubby is super handy. Many of the projects we did it ourselves, okay 85% hubby and 15% me. LOL. I am really good at supervising, though. :)

Now, we're pretty much done with any house project and we can just enjoy it. Today, the plumber and the electrician will come and then I should be able to put everything back. Yay!!

Since we're talking kitchen today, I thought I also share this apron card  that I made for Paper Crafter's Library post last month. 



And below is pic of the card with a gift card inside the front pocket of the apron.



Now, I have to brainstorm for birthday present idea. My birthday is coming  up in 3 days and hubby been asking what I want for my birthday and I don't have any answer for him. I know, I know a girl can't have too many stamps, but I think he wants to give me something special other than stamps. 

Every time I get a new shipment of stamps, he always joke, really you need more? LOL, I don't think he realize that I will always have a stamp wish list. Hubby's friends pretty jealous of him because I never ask for jewelry or anything like that. I told him I am way too practical for things like that. I only wear my engagement & wedding ring from him and necklace from my mom, so why would I ask for jewelry if I rarely take off these 3 standard staples?

Time to ponder and come up with some list... :) Have a blessed week everyone.

Congrats on the kitchen upgrade! I'm sure it changes the look of the whole kitchen. This apron card is adorable and very clever as well. Hmmm, if not stamps, what about paper? LOL!
