A weeks worth of photos!




So, tomorrow will be my first week into project 365. It has not always been easy to take a picture for each day. But it is soo rewarding to stick with it. :) The above picture is my favorite for the week. My parents are putting their house up for sale. So, I finally had to go and take down all 43+ packs of stars. It was a BIG job, I also had about a 1,000 small sticker stars on the ceiling and slightly down the walls. Trin helped us pick them off the floor, and put them in this copper colored basket like thing. :)


It looked awesome at night, and was really nifty to get to see a falling star while lying in bed. But, I suppose all good things must come to an end? I still have them all, but it may take me a few months to forget how much of a pain it was to take them down. Maybe by then, I will decide to hang them in Trin's room. However, we do have 9.6' tall ceilings... it may take me a year to be stupid enough to decide to attempt hanging them! :)


-Oh and for the record, should you find yourself in my situation... a stiff plastic spatula works really well in taking the stars down! :)

Jess, I give you a big pat on the back! You probly need a heat pad on the neck too :) I still have a couple packages that I had intended on puting on Cole's ceiling. Maybe I will. After hearing you take them down, i'm having second thoughts :)

In every apartment I've lived in I've always put stars on the ceiling... usually only a package or two... but it was still a job to get them down. They are just too much fun to stare at before drifting off to sleep.

Hahaha Things you don't really think about when you are beginning a project. I have to say that I love them in that container though. I would probably leave them all in that on a nightstand or something. It looks pretty spectacular that way too. Little Roman (not your Roman...lol) would be all over it though....
