Wow....I've been gone almost a whole month! I have to apologize for that. Call it crazy here with the Christmas season, kids, church and etc. I have had such a messy house due to kids home and life being busy. I still can't seem to get on top of the clutter. I really need to get some organizing done. My craft stuff is everywhere and I dream of having a room dedicated to my crafting. I lost that when McKale was born and I am missing it so much! I am constantly crafting so it seems I can never get anything picked up and looking nice. Right now I am working on a Valentine swap. I have to make 14 Valentine's that are similar. I decided to make heart jewelry with altered art images on them. They are turning out so awesome. After the swap I will post some pictures!
I wanted to leave you with a few pics of redos in my house. I started last night taking down the Christmas stuff. It is a really long process...so it will take me a couple days. Hoping the hubby will take down the tree for me tonight. I took off all the ornies, so now it's up to him. Then he'll get to move a big piece of furniture in that spot, so I can't see him being excited!
I wanted simple new years resolutions that I could keep...so here they are:
1) Smile more!
2) Make more friends!
3) Blog more!
4) Enjoy the simple things!
5) Give my everyday, ordinary life to God...he'll use me!
6) To not make a big deal of little things!
7) Hug and kiss my kids everyday!
8) Ditto for my hubby!
I also wanted to do a giveaway. I've put it off way too long. This little slip was altered with some fun embroidered pieces. I am giving this away with the cute vintage hanger. I will also make up a little sweet inspiration kit. I will put in goodies like buttons, lace, doilies, vintage ephemera, and etc. I promise it will be really fun.
