Lastnight I just happened to be browsing the internet and came across this cool site. How neat is it that you can send in your handwriting and this awesome blogger will vectorize it into your own fonts? I think I may try it. I still wonder how some have the time to devote? I must be ADD because I can't even seem to organize what I want to get organized.
Anyone else ever feel like that?

Mommy's latest creation for Railey's 6th birthday. What a good time the kids had. Barbie was well received and might I say, well consumed as well.

I love you my sweet daughter

Wow-how time flies!

What an amazing amount of fulfillment I have had in my 10 years of marriage. I cannot begin to try and understand how 2 people can be so right for each other. We have bought a house together, had two wonderful children, and still have managed to find time to make a relationship work. Work, I say- it is hard work being a mom and a wife, but it is sooo.... worth it.

I love you my dear...

What a long week it's been. Summer seems to be crawling! I have been enjoying hanging out with the kids since they've been out of school, but this whininess and insistance on having things
RIGHT NOW is driving me up my tree. I am so ready for the crafting I have been craving.
I need a minute to slow down, take a breath and concentrate on my fourth decade of life. Wow- did I almost say the "f" word? Shhhh..... don't tell anyone...

Giveaway: The Recipe Club

Giveaway: The Recipe Club

Whilst thumbing through my emails I read a post from one of my fav foodie bloggers Pink of Perfection, and came across this give away. It brought back memories of myself and my parents cooking at home way back when I was attending college. Read it and I'm sure you'll be following her!

So, I guess its been a while since I have blogged. Amongst the many projects I have been working on, my writing has been lacking. I am almost finished pinning the fabric to the ottoman and chair I'm attempting to make a slipcover for. This has been an ultimate challenge especially since it's hard to keep the kiddos from jumping up and down on it. The pins don't seem to deter them:-

Having to go to Wally World yesterday was an interesting trip. I held a couple of conversations with ladies whom I didn't know, and some rather disturbing information was sent my way. Mmm... get ready for this: So, apparantely in the domestic section of the store there are baskets made of animal hair. That's right, not rawhide or anything like that, but animal hair. The kind woman at the fabric counter forlaid that to me. I'll have to remind myself to look the next time I'm there. I told her I have heard of people saving cat hair and felting it, but how on earth does one make a basket out of it??

Another one of those things which makes you go hmmm....

Glass tower DIY

Here's something I've been thinking about for a while now. It's really easy to do, but takes patience. I will post instructions when the finished product is revealed!

GET 'ER Done Tuesday

I thought since I got this low flow shower head free from our

local water authority, I'd attempt to install it myself.


since I got this lovely set of tools from Santa, I'd even do

it with my own stuff, Yea for me!!

Now, if I can figure out how all these work!!!
Off to find something else to tool with. I soon will see what the air compressor and nail gun will do:)

So I am finally gearing up to start blogging again. I had a blog a few years ago, but lost it the confines of google. Here's my attempt at a new beginning. New year= new beginnings, right?

Today lends itself for healthy eating. My kids have taken this approach today as well. We should all feel great for the dreaded 1st day back to school tomorrow. 6:30 AM ~oh boy how early!
