Week 5 of Building a Hiline Home – Let’s Talk DEQ Inspections and Poop!

This is our journey in the building of our dream home.  It’s not paid by HiLine in anyway.  All though I wouldn’t be opposed if they wanted to put a side garage door in for me… We forgot to add that in.

Our journey is out of the Salem Oregon Office and as we spoke about in Week 0… each office is different.

HiLine can be found at their website:  https://www.hilinehomes.com

This is the Floorplan we are building:  https://www.hilinehomes.com/floorplans/plan-1768/

And here is the shortcut to all their floor plans:  https://www.hilinehomes.com/floorplans/

Permaculture – Designing the Back Zone 4 into 5

Plants are moveable. Yes it would be ideal if I never had to move a plant… ever… but sometimes moving them is the only way to save them. And when you are building a house and you have extra acreage it becomes not only a necessity but a challenge….

Crafty Christmas Collab 2019 Week 2 Heart Garland with the Cricut

@bourboncreekcrafts #GlueMatters

Here is the announcement video with the paper flip through: https://youtu.be/Khz502LmBkw

And here is week 1: https://youtu.be/u9XUz5NkeRM

Bourbon Creek Crafts started this challenge and her channel can be found here https://bit.ly/31UrnzC   Where she will have a list of all the other crafters that are taken part in the challenge!

This project is simple but so elegant on a tree or mantle.  I used the cricut to do the cutting for me.  But you could totally use a heart shaped punch and any type of paper you desire.  Or you could draw the shape out and make a paper template and do as I used to do in the 90’s and… Cut. Each. One. Individually.

Or you could be like me and grab this file that I saved for ya and make your own in less than an hour.  The file is free even if you don’t have access…. And can be found at this link:  https://design.cricut.com/#/design/181699546

I used a ruler with washi tape on it to mark the spacing… As I explain in the video.

Best Glue Ever!!!!: https://amzn.to/2PJHEET

Unboxing The Canon EOS M50 By A Newbie

Having a camera that will do what I dream up…. Has always been a dream of mine.

If you haven’t watched the prior video where my husband surprises me with this camera… Feel free to watch it here https://youtu.be/3UkLnDwwInk

Here is the Camera Canon M50 https://amzn.to/35BOTVb

The video we filmed the unboxing on was my cell phone.  A simple Samsung S7 with a massively broken screen.   I look forward to learning this camera… For now, I am waiting for lessons from my friend.

Follow us along on our journey.  Because things are happening and we are filming them along the way.  Look for the unboxing video coming soon.

Tuesday Morning and Michaels Haul and My Husband is 2

I love going to Tuesday Morning.  In reality I miss popping into shops as I am going about my day.  The wink and smile to the store employee that recognizes you and says hello…

I miss that.

Regina B Look what I found??!!!!!  I totally started laughing inside the store.  It was priceless.  And I had to buy it because well…. You would have wanted me to right???
