Craft Projects 2014 & 28 Things

1. I wanted to do a 28 Things. But I didn't have any pictures so I decided to include the pictures of my favorite crafting projects from 2014. If you click the picture you can see more about the project. And more pictures, too.

2. I like them.    

3. I really like them.

4. It was a beautiful, sun drenched trip to Oklahoma for Christmas.

5. Except for the part where our right rear wheel disintegrated while we were driving on I-70 in Vadalia, IL.  

6. Could I just say that driving with 3 wheels instead of 4 is slightly scary.

7. I won't tell where we had JUST had 4 new tires put on - 18 days ago. INCORRECTLY.

8. I WILL tell you if they are not willing to reimburse us for the $750 we spent to recover from that and be on our way. To be determined.

9. I feel very lucky.

10. That $750 robbed me of my traditional wedding anniversary dinner at The Mantel on Christmas Eve.

11. I celebrated my 17th anniversary at Old Chicago Pizza.

12. That's not an entirely bad thing. They have Italian nachos. And that's a good thing.

13. The ride home was uneventful.  Thank goodness.

14. Since I've been home I've been catching up on Facebook.

15. Because that's so much more important than putting away Christmas decorations and cleaning the basement.

16. I did not clean the basement last year. 

17. That means that it will be a two years since the basement was cleaned.

18. I have swept the basement many times.

19. I'm not a complete slob.

20. I have no idea what I will blog about in the two weeks it takes me to clean the basement.

21. I will try really hard not to complain about it too much.

22. I'm not sure if I will succeed at the whole no complaining about the basement thing.

23. We left Sammy the full grown kitten/puppy home alone (actually not alone, with our other cat - The Queen) during our trip.

24. He missed me.

25. I'm not sure that I have had one catless moment since I've been home.

26. I've got to go now.

27. I need to pick out a dessert for tonight off of my pinterest board.

28. Ummmm Yummmmm.

Happy New Year!!!

I adore your pictures and most of your 28 things are quirky except for the wheel falling off. The same thing happened to my niece who was returning to vet school. She just had new tires put on, too and apparently the guy at the shop failed to tighten the nut bolts holding the tire on. The shop was nationwide and a local one near the scene was very accommodating especially when my sister-in-law threaten a lawsuit. You are very fortunate that a terrible accident didn't happen. Hope you have a great new year and the basement will eventually get cleaned.

Happy New Year, Karen. It's been great getting to know you this past year. I'm sorry about your car (that scenario always scares me and why do I always think about it on trips? Because it happened once when I was a teenager, riding with my mom), but I'm glad you weren't injured. Cheers to 2015!

Linda @ it all started with paint said...

That sounds frightening! I'm so glad you are safe. And I'm pulling for you to get that $750 back! Yikes! And good luck with that basement. I've been spending time in my very own basement this past year. The nice part which I have no problem cleaning. And then there's the old part. The old yucky part. Yeah, I don't clean that part much either!

Happy New Year, my friend!

Wow! Scary about the tire. Sorry I didn't get to see you this trip. Great projects girl!

So happy that no one was hurt yet so sad you missed your anniversary dinner. :(

If they do not reimburse you, you need to tell them you have a nationally read blog & that you will tell who was responsible for a potentially life-threatening incident. We will then tell all our families & friends & on & on & on.....

You make me laugh! I've been on a hiatus and have to get back to blogging next week. I have NO idea what I will blog about!

Make sure you let us know about the tires thing. Of course a whole army could blog about the mystery business if they decide not to do right by you.

I'm glad you weren't hurt, other than your bank account!

I had fun looking at your favorite post photos throughout the year and look forward to what you've got up your sleeve in the new year!
