What's up kids? The wife and I bought our first house 4-5 years ago. The house we purchased was new. It wasn't very evident to us at the time that it was a blank canvas. Now years later we are just getting around to painting and such to make it feel more like a home. I have heard this is pretty normal. It seems I really need to be in the mood to tackle home improvement and it comes and goes in phases. A buddy of mine just sent me his old Nest after he got a new one. Maybe I will install that for my next project.

What about you? What projects have you completed or perhaps what are you looking to do?

In the spirit of it all I thought to share yesterday's art hanging. These were the first of anything to be put on the walls besides paint which happened just a few months ago. I have a BFA in printmaking and while I haven't made a print in a decade or more I still buy quite a few from my favorite artists in the genre. I have had these prints framed and sitting in a spare bedroom for ages. All of the rooms are still in progress but I thought it was about time to get some art on the walls. Here's everything we put up and there's plenty more to hang. Big thanks to Tammy Shea owner of Bella Framing who framed all of these and came over to assist with getting them on the walls.

On to the pictures.
