Things are going to start up again!

I have been wondering what do I want to write about in my blog?

So many things interest me and time dictates what I am allowed to divulge in.  Projects take time, blogging takes time, parenting takes time, being stylish takes time and so on.

I have decided that I will share with you a little bit of it all. Crafting, Painting, Re-dos, Style, Kids, Family and Finances.  I am excited about it all.  See you back here tomorrow.

Wishlish or To do List

I'm not sure if I should call this my
wish list or to-do list.
Does anyone else feel like that?

TV Time Wasters

I must confess....I have the TV on all day long.

You see, I work in an office and the TV stays on most of the time for background noise. 

This fall since new shows have come out, my TV stays on ABC all morning. 

Here is my line up:

Happy Tuesday!

What I'm Loving Wednesday!

My dear friend Megan over at
links up to

I thought I would share my Lovin' Wednesday with you too.

I'm Loving paper plates.  They are not PC, I know.  But right now I do not have a working dishwasher and paperplates saves me lots and lots of time.

I'm Loving my exerices classes in the mornings.  A group of women from my church have been meeting at 5 a.m. three days a week and we have been getting our workout on!

 I'm Loving watching these three monkeys grow up.

Happy Wednesday to All!


Wanted to Share

Today I have been looking around blog land and I have found two sites that I have looked at from front to back.

First you need to go check out

Then you need to go check out

I really enjoyed the simplicity of these sites.  I find comfort at places like these.  I hope you do to.
Have a cup of coffee and enjoy your day.

$3,008 in Prizes

That’s the grand total of all the prizes up for grabs! CRAZY right!!!

Go over to Blue Cricket Design and see the awesome giveaway she is having. 

Here are just a few of the prizes:

I have been holding onto a gift certificate from Kirklands since Christmas and a couple of weeks ago I was able to go shopping with it!!!  I made my first trip ever to Kirklands and it was FANTASTIC. 

This store had wonderful beautiful items for your home.  I had a hard time picking out just want I wanted to buy because I loved it all.  The prices were reasonable and more than half the store was marked down.  (I just love getting a good deal.)

Here are a few pictures of some thing I did purchase.

If you haven't check out Kirkland, you need to.  Stop by and see what they have to offer!
Buyer beware...you will find something you HAVE to take home with you.

Another Chalkboard

We all love chalkboard paint! 
I made a HUGE new chalkboard for my den.

I had kept my eye out for a really big picture or painting that I could turn into a chalkboard and I found one at a yard sale for only $2.00.  I thought the details of the frame were perfect. 

I had forgot take a "before" picture.  The frame was a gold leaf and I had already started spray painting the painting before I went to grab my camera.  Here is what I started with.

( I don't know why blogger keeps rotating the picture.  Ugh )

This is what I ended up with.

I  am in LOVE with how it turned out.  This is also my first time using a glaze and I think it all works together nicely.  Please ignore the notty pine...I have plans to change that.  Just give me some time.


Have you been told since you were little that you were creative?  Did you grow up with creativity being encouraged?  I believe we all are creative and that sometimes we just have to believe in our ideas.  No matter what creative talent you have, it might be writing, photography, DIY, painting, gardening, crafts, what ever it might be...keep at it and the more you use your talent I believe the more it will grow.

Photos courtsey of me.  :)
Nothing encourages creativity like the chance to fall flat on one's face.  ~James D. Finley

Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try! ~Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Thinks You Can Think!

Never tell people how to do things.  Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.  ~George Smith Patton, War as I Knew It, 1947
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.  ~Pablo Picasso
Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.  ~Lewis Carroll
Happy Monday!

Vacation is Near!

I have spent a lot of my time at a place like this lately.

The paperwork has been never ending lately as well.

I also have been busy watching this guy play t-ball....

...and this little girl play softball.

I have been busy running this one where she needs to go.

We had some fun over the 4th of July weekend...

and now very soon....my family will slow down enough to get to go on vaction to a place like this.

That makes me smile.

Have you missed me because I have missed you.  I have missed being a creative. I have been really busy with work and life.  I will be back posting regularly when it slows down a bit.  I have so many things that I would like to accomplish in my home and I will share each step with you.

Today as I was looking around blog land,
I stumbled across Pink and Polka Dot blog by Kristi.

She has some beautiful things on her blog.  Go over there and check her out.

My New Living Room Board

Now that I have settled into my new house I am really wanting to make it look like me.  I have been on the lookout for things that inspire me.  So I have put together a few things that I would like to re-create in my living room.  : )

I found this photo in blog land and cannot locate who it belongs go.
However, don't you love the look of it! 
I do and it makes me want to paint my table this weekend.

Here is a picture of my table.  It is similar to the table above and I think it would look fantastice painted out!  This table is now in my front living room and we use it like a game table.  So, if I mess it up...no biggie.
