Irish Eyes

I've been meaning to snap a picture of these for about a week now...but FINALLY here they are. They are a scrabble tile, with a vintage image on them and sealed with a glaze. They are for the Vintage St. Patty Swap over at 2peas...charms and tags! Can't wait to see what everyone does.

I was given this award by Rachel of "I love my three sons".
Here are the steps:

1. Say one nice thing to the man in your life:
My hubby Chris is a hard worker, who always puts his best foot forward. He tried to keep the peace no matter how upset he may truly feel about the situation. He also is generous almost to a fault...helping almost anyone and everyone who crosses his path. He is a great father and committed husband and I value him more than he really knows.

2. List at least 6 ways you measure success in your life:
My children are happy, My husband is taken care of, Other look to me for support, I can sleep each night knowing I have done my best that day, I have parents whom I value and value me, I am surrounded by great friends

3. Assign 6 other blogs this award:

Tuesday I got to scrap with "the girls" of Creative Outlet! It was so nice to actually make pages again. I have been obsessed with swaps. I love them because they allow you to constantly have something new to work on...but I never realized how much I missed scrappin pages! So here is my favorite page from the crop. It is my husband (in blue) and his good friend out shooting with a 3rd buddy. They had a great time together, and Vicki and I made SURE to send a camera with them to capture their silliness...and they did good providing us pictures!

Getting closer...

I finally finished the painting yesterday....It's still a mess, as I am just moving the pile of material stashed around the house into the room, before I begin to organize and find everything a permanent home. I love the color and I will start on the curtains tonight. I LOVE the fabric and I got a steal of a deal on it. It was normally $19.99 a yard upholstery fabric. It was on clearance for $6yard...but rang up 50% a true give-a-way at $3.00 a yard!!! I may go get more to make some coordinating goodies!

With any luck...I'll be done tomorrow

New Bedding

Have I ever mentioned what a bum this kid is?

There is no normal speed...she is either talking and moving 100 MPH or a total bum!
She loves TV, movies, cartoon...anything on the TV screen!

She's been dying to go pick out a new comforter for a couple days...since I threw the old one away. She had drug it all over the house, and it had been washed all it could take. So off to Target we went...and she is the proud new owner of a bright striped comforter.

Final Day of F-U-N...

We found a total of 14 today and we are only 3 away from our 100th find...which Katie is planning to do the The Great Watauga Train Wreck! Here are a few pictures from today's fun!!!
