Its been a while...

 Hi Guys,
I know its been a loooong time since Ive posted. Truth is I havent made a card in a couple of months. Just having a bit of a break for the winter. So thank all of you who decided to hang with me even while Ive been away from Blogland.
THis week's challenge at Mo's is to post your favorite Mo card of 2012. I couldn't miss that opportunity even though Im cutting it very close in getting this in.
THis was probably my fave card, the coloring came out just how I wanted and it was one of those rare cards youre pretty much 100%  happy with when its done. A rare occurance!!

OK, so its not crafty but in case youve been wondering what Ive been doing lately, Ive been doing some "house projects", nothing exciting per se but just things that have been a bit neglected lately.
Let me show you what I mean:
Here's my sideboard which has been scratched up for quite some time. Ive been meaning to refinish it but just havent got around to it:

 Well, I still havent refinished it but I decided to try out some "Old English" scratch remover to see if it would temporarily 'improve' it. Here's the result:

You gotta admit thats pretty awesome! Here's a close up:
 So I decided the refinishing could wait, thats pretty close to perfect!
So theeeen I got to thinking, hey my kitchen floor is pretty awful why not try it on that? So I bought some Old English Scratch Remover in LIGHT and I'll show you how that went.
First, here is the before:
You can see that the original finish is almost completely worn away. The floor really needs to be stripped but I cant do it in the winter so this is to "hold it over" til warm weather comes and I can do without my kitchen for a week or so. (not sure when that will be!).

 And below is the after picture:
Yes, still a little rough but the color is more uniform so at first glance it looks not too bad.

 OK, are you ready for a "Pinstrocity??" Me too!
Have any of you read about the super duper way to boil eggs in the oven? The claim is that the eggs come out tastier, are easier to peel etc etc etc. Well! What they neglected to mention was this: that the eggs also scorch in the muffin tin and end up with brown spots all over them!
Here's the Pinterest picture that inspired me:

Who knew?

And here's my reality:
Anyone for some ugly eggs?
And by the way, they do NOT peel easier and they do NOT taste tastier either.
So there.
Well thats what's been happening here, thanks for visiting!!
