Friendly Inspiration

I am once again about to make more changes to my blog. As I've stated before, I'm really new at this blogging thing. And yes, I do realize that no one is even reading my posts anyway. At this point, it's a type of therapy for me I suppose.

I've spent some more time browsing other blogs that have caught my interest for various reasons. Whether it's other Moms I relate to, other Christians or other junkers (or a combination of all three!), I have also come to realize that most people start out the same why I am. That realization has comforted me and helped me understand that I shouldn't be so hard on myself and this will evolve as I go.

So....I've decided to save this blog as more of a personal one that "narrows" my ramblings to focus on my family and me. I was oh-so-inspired by another Mommie that said one day her daughters would read her blog about their lives and hopefully know their Mom a little bit more than they already do. How simple yet profound is that? I'd love to add a link directly to her post but alas, one more thing I need to learn how to do! But as soon as I learn that, I'd love to give her the credit for inspiring me. Oh wait! I found this button, I hope this works....

I've also decided to create a new blog that focuses more on my love for junkin'. I'll include pictures and stories of my projects like painted furniture, accessories and the treasures I find while I'm junkin'. I hope to have an actual web-site one day but hey, one thing at a time. It's so like me to start 64 projects at once and none of them ever get done. I wish I could be like my husband and stay focused. Is there any hope for me? I know, I know, I can hear my hubbie now...."Don't be so hard on yourself. I love my crazy wife just the way she is and I love our crazy life." I love you, too, Babe.

Spring Cleaning!

I'm so happy and inspired since my husband and I spent two solid days in our space rearranging and organizing. What a difference! We aren't even half way done and the changes are amazing. We've gotten so many compliments already, we can't wait to finish it. Realistically, it will be a while before it's completely re-done but I have to say, I'm pretty darn happy so far.

We installed a bunch of old doors along the right side where there wasn't a wall. We moved several pieces of furniture of Arlene's to a few of her other booth locations. She was so happy that we changed it up in here and helped her rearrange her other spaces as well.

I just LOVE adding appliques to furniture, old drawers and boxes but especially children's furniture pieces! We had worked so hard on some new pieces and couldn't wait to bring them into our "new and improved" space. Finally there was room and it's so light and open now. I'm only posting pictures of the side we worked on. It's not totally finished but like I said....there's still along way to go but I am very happy so far!

Blessings to all,

"Bare" with me!

Well, here I am...another attempt at making my blog look better and not be so bare. I have no idea what I'm doing! I tried one of those free backgrounds from the Background Fairy. I love it and her instructions are super easy to follow, bless her heart for those of us that are completely lame at this. She did say that placement and font options for your title are very limited. I just hope I can figure something to improve it and quick! Not that anyone actually reads my blog, but sometimes I'm such a perfectionist even when no one else will see it! ha-ha!
