mood changing monday.

(edited to say that i know this is tuesday but the
title says monday, i tried to post it monday
but blogger and i were not seeing eye-to-eye
on the photo part...argh.)

i had a rotten weekend.

one part renovation stress,
one part family get together stress,
one part minor marital misunderstanding,
one huge part the feeling
of being misunderstood and unconnected
to friends i normally feel connected to.

then this morning i got an email from
marianne at applehead
telling me she was mailing me a package!!

and then i got the mail today
and in it
was the cutest little package
green bean baby
containing a tutorial that i couldn't print
off and the sweetest l'il tag and package
of pretty papers and the coolest wallpaper...

if that is not enough to make the day brighter,
i don't know what is? that was soooo sweet of her
to do...thank you ellia!

and the kitchen?
it went from this

to this


to this

and this is my bulletin board...
it was a little worse for wear
so i tried to fix it up with a little bit of paint...

i'm feeling better now.
