A Dusty Monday

Hello Dear Fellas, how are you all doing? I hope you guys had a very relaxed weekend and are ready for one more week of adventures. Yes, life for me is an adventure and always filled with new things. Yesterday my hubby gave me two new toys and I have to say I felt like a child opening a present on Christmas Day! For years I've been painting things, renovating some, and as practical as he is, he thought it would be better if I had the right tools to work. And he was right. I've been sending with my hands and painting for so long I can't even remember. I like to use paint brushes, don't get me wrong, but I have a huge (at least for me is huge), I should say, a big piece of furniture we bought a while ago + others and I assumed he was tired of looking of them sitting in the garage. And I am too!!!! I like things flowing, so, he gave me a sender and a air compressor with the paint gun to make my job easier and more enjoyable during these cold days we have.

It is a simple sender, very light in weight and easy to use it!
I got a nice fabric for this chair on the left...

So today, while the kids were in school, I had to do a bit of work, and I had a very dusty afternoon, sending everything you can possibly imagine. From side table, a desk, an end table to this big Hutch. I think if I had to send them all only with the send paper it will take me quite a while...I'm so happy with my new toys! It didn't take me much to do what I had to do and tomorrow a new adventure begins...PAINTING!
And look who showed up to make me a visit?

Jasper and Alice!
Just sneaking around...

They follow me everywhere !

Thanks for visiting and until next time. If you have any questions about sending, I'll be happy to help you.

Hi Li, great gifts! I have the mouse sander too and I love it. Looks like you have lots to keep you busy for awhile. I live in BC (interior), we have family in Edmonton and usually visit several times a have much better shopping than we do! Deb
