Our summer projects

What a difference paint makes!!!

 It's 60 degrees out today. A little unusual for a WI November...but I'm not complaining. I thought it would be a great day to reflect upon the projects that we got done around our house this past summer.

Usually for our anniversary DH and I buy a tree or two and have them planted in our yard. This year we bought rocks. So romantic..I know. Try not to be jealous  ;)

Many days were spent putting down landscape fabric, and spreading rocks. It
was not fun. Talk about a work out, every muscle in my body ached. Ouchie.

Look real lights...not solar powered!

DH also wired in some lights, AND finally agreed with me about painting the front door! Bye bye ugly green paint. Then end result - gorgeous! We should have done this years ago.

Freshly painted front door. I love it.

The rocks look fantastic. DH promises they will stay in place over winter and we won't have to buy more each year like we did when we had mulch.

The front door is bright & inviting. It's no longer dark & scary. Okay maybe it was never scary..but it certainly was dark.

We also poured a concrete slab next to our garage..the perfect parking spot for our trailer. That's right the entire driveway will be clear this winter! That will make plowing sooo much easier. After all when you live in WI you have to plan for winter. 
Our house, with the freshly painted entrance and landscape lights installed.

Of course we already have a long list of projects planed for 2012...stay tuned for updates.

Welcome to Calico Cali Designs! I’m Kat, digitizer and sewing enthusiast. I learned how to digitize in 2010 from master digitizer Walter Floriani…it was an amazing experience. Soon instead of spending my time sewing, quilting and stitching out other people’s embroidery designs, I was sewing, quilting and stitching out my own embroidery designs. I created this blog, not only as a place to share my embroidery designs, but also as a place to share all the things I make, sew, paint, embroider, and create. You’ll see posts about my life, my studio, patterns I’ve sewn and products I’ve tested. I hope you enjoy reading these posts as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them.
