1st Day of Pre School~~~ My baby

Man how time flys....

Sorry I've Been MIA

Hi there,

Sorry Ive been MIA for months. I've had a lot happen and had a lot going on over the last 6months that has kept me from being able to be here. Sorry I just disappeared without notice.

Tomorrow is my youngest sons first day at pre-k.... This will be the first time in years I've been alone all day at home. Its going to be an adjustment but will give me time to treasure hunt and craft....

This week is going to be a busy week of housework and those type of things and getting caught up now that there all in school but next week I hope to be crafting and blogging....

Talk to you soon.

Friday again already....

I cant believe how quickly time is passing. Almost Valentines Day doesn't seem possible....

I thought I would go ahead and make a post this am because I'm going to try to pull myself away from this computer for the day. My house, my laundry and my son need my attention. Ive gotten so wrapped up online with all the great blogs with so much talent (i just cant stop reading and admiring) then there's the online shopping I need to take a break from ebay, etsy and amazon for a few days. Just been spending to much time online so going to take a break for today!

I plan on cleaning, doing laundry and maybe even doing some redecorating today! If I have time I would like to squeeze in some crafting time... have a few things in mind that I would like to start.

Hopefully I will get a lot accomplished and can share some pics this weekend...

Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday!

Well that Ugly Bowl Got A Makeover

That ugly gingerbread bowl in my last post got a makeover...


Heres how it turned out...



What I've been up too. I need to get movitated....

Haven't posted on my blog much and haven't really even crafted much this last week or so. Been struggling with this nasty cold that I cant seem to get rid of....I worked and crafted like a machine the first day I was sick but after that not so much so now trying to get back in the swing of things even though Im not really feeling up to par yet...LOL

I did manage to get out to a local thrift store I got a wall basket, a platter for my shabby room and a gingerbread man wood bowl (which is about to get a paint job)
Here's what I got....

This is a Shabby button Covered heart I'm working on....

Anywho I'll be sure to post pics of the bowl and heart when I get them done.

Todays project.....

I did a little shopping today for supplies then I came home and did a little project I had in mind for my bestie Angie.

I just recently learned how to crochet. It all started when Angie was recreating some crochet covered balls we saw on our trip to Berlin. Once she got a set done and I saw how amazing they turned out I knrew I had to learn... So I talked my mom into teaching me. I havent gotten good at more than a single row yet. But I wanted to make a little something with what I had crocheted so far.

I decided I was going to make a candle mat with it, since I cant do more than a single row this is what I came up with.... I took a peice of felt and cut it into the size and shape I wanted then started on the outside hot glueing the yarn all the way around as I went....

I'm happy with the finished project

Here are a few pics from start to finish

Just wanted to share a few pictures of the new wall color.

Winter break has come to an end for the kids, its back to school tomorrow. Which means I should be able to get some much needed house work and crafting done.

Talk to you again soon.
