What I've been doing all weekend

First, Friday night, I painted. I needed some way to de-stress from last week and it seems that destruction/construction on my house does a good job of that for me. So I taped and got 2 coats on the wall in about 4 hours and went to bed. When I woke up in the morning, the color was a lot bluer than I had expected but that's okay. Saturday, I had a class at Bead Obsessions where I ran into this pretty little girl

Pretty girl!

and found that I couldn't leave the shop without her. I'm going to make her little beady arms and today at work, Svitlana gave me a suggestion on how I could position her arms so it doesn't look like she's being crucified! After the class, I stopped at Costco to check out a tv to see what it looks like in person. I think you all saw that post :) Sunday, I went to the Fairfax Costco and picked up the wall mount since I figured that would save time for today and then had fun with a power drill. Mwhahahaha! Now I'm dangerous. Today, I talked two of my friends into helping me go get the tv. I figured 2 guys to move a tv would do the trick. They got into cuz well, it was a tv. And now, this is my basement:
New TV!
New TV!

No I don't have an HD signal coming in, but I'm still happy with it. See the painted wall behind it. The guys were impressed with how quick this was and how all they had to do was lift. So...who wants to sit in my basement this weekend and knit? The first MS3 clue comes out on Friday!

I would totally be there if not for the fact that we're going on vacation... I need to redo one of our basement rooms this summer and could use inspiration!!
