Name blocks...

What a great long weekend! I got so much done and even finished two sets of name blocks.
The first set I did for my little grandie Taylor-
The second set I did for my little grandie Rayden-
I am so happy with how they turned out and they cost me less than $5 to make both sets!

Have a great week!
Until later,

Organizing the makeup station...

So I was minding my own business the other day when I came upon this -
and this, I am so ashamed ;)
Seriously, how can one ever expect to put on a decent face in that mess? So I got to work and found some organizer containers and before you knew it we have this-
and this-
How much better is that? It feels so much better to not have to scrounge through a disaster to try to get pretty!!

Until later,

Craft room redo...

I had been working on my Craft room redo for quite awhile and had it just about finsished it when I got some new information...my oldest son and my two year old grandie Rayden were moving home on New Years Day! It is fun to have a little one running around but I do miss the space and my Dining room now looks like hoarders are living in my little cottage! I do have some pictures of some of the things I had done to share though, so I hope you enjoy- This room will again some day be my craft and dressing room, hence the sign on the wall-
I love this little shelf vignette with candles, ribbon and bling! Aren't the glow in the dark moon and stars and the sun mirror fun?!
This wall holds most of my organization stuff- my ribbon organizer, my paper drawers, my sewing machince and my homemade white board and magnet boards-

I loved how this room was evolving and I can't wait to work on it again, but for now I am just going to enjoy my grandie!

Until later,

Pink lamp redo...

While I was in the process of redoing my craft room, which will soon be another post, I decided I needed a little lamp for the room. It had to fit 2 criteria 1. It had to be cheap 2. It had to be adorable.
What do you think?

I started with this -
I spray painted a lamp shade Krylon Ballet Slipper, which I already had. I attached flowers that I made awhile ago and Walla! It is both cheap (paid 2 dollars for the lamp at the DI) and adorable!
Here are some more views -
I really do love it!

Happy 2012!...

I have come to realize that my favorite holiday, next to Easter of course, is New Years Day. I really think I like them both for the same reason, they both feel like a time of new beginnings. Things are fresh and new, it is always a great time for starting over. Also, I love, love lists and what better time of year to write 100 lists?!! JK, maybe not 100 but a few or more, we will see!!
First list - New Years Resolutions 2012

1. Be completely prepared for Christmas by December 1, 2012.
2. Lose 10-15 lbs.
3. Be financially responsible.
4. Pay off my three piddly bills. (I know you all know what a piddly bill is!).
5. I will not buy another purse in the entire year of 2012! (Yikes!, that will definitly be the hardest to keep!)
Second list - Wishlist 2012

1. Cricut Create
2. Dress form
3. 3 or 4 family tables
4. Sewing machine fixed or replaced
5. Massage chair attachement

Well today it was two lists but I assure you there will be more!
Until later,
