To Clutch or Not To Clutch

Recently the Babydoll and I had an evening at the ballet (my mother also joined us). She has been taking ballet for about 4 years and since we have gotten her into a decent school she is improving and learning more. Her love of dance (not just ballet, but all types – I have to…

Office Reupholstery

I’ve recently been spending a lot of time working on completing my office.  I With the move, I got a 10 x 12 room to decorate and use for my own purposes.  I had furnishings –  my desk, craft table, and reading chair.  I knew I wanted a book case to hold some of the…

What’s a Chifferobe? Part I

I’ve been looking for a dresser for the Baby Doll’s room since before we moved.  I didn’t know what I was looking for, I just knew that I would know when I saw it.  I wasn’t being picky either – I looked in the new and thrift stores for this piece, I just couldn’t find…

A Place To Rest My Feet

Well I finally got it finished!  A place to rest my wearies.  A place to put up the dogs.  A place to chillaxe.  A place to rest my feet.  I finally finished my ottoman. I started working on my ottoman a couple of weeks ago, but finally finished it on Sunday.  What took me so…

Time to DIY

Now that we’ve finally found and moved into a house that we love, everything is unpacked (for the most part), the old house is just about ready to lease out, and the weather is finally coming around to something more conducive to working outdoors; so what does this mean for me?  It’s time to start…

Photography 001

Another project

I promised myself and husband that I would not start anymore major DIY projects (namely refurbing another piece of furniture) until after we found and house and moved.  I’ve been trudging along with the items that we currently have in the house (and some that are in storage) trying to find a way to make…

I got my own…

Toolbox!!! I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve had this problem for a few years and I thought it was time to do something about it.  You see my husband had this REALLY awesome red standup toolbox in the garage that has all these nifty drawers that allow for placement of  ALL…

Construction blues…

We moved back into the house this weekend (I will post about that horror movie later), but in addition to the chaos of moving, we had to contend with the mess of construction.  What construction might you ask?  Well I’ll tell you.  We are looking for a new home and want to lease out our home…

Maniac Monday

Who wakes up feeling under the weather with a crazy to-do list?  Lonnita…thats who.  Kristian returned to school yesterday and I had a few things that I wanted to get done, but figured I would take her to school and then get back in the bed for about an hour because I’m trying to get…
